I've heard that this is "the most important election of all time" every single election for my entire life.rolandson wrote: ↑Thu Sep 17, 2020 3:14 pmI don't disagree with any of this.NegativeApproach wrote: ↑Thu Sep 17, 2020 9:37 amThat ignores that Biden is a part of that same problem. Clinton Democrats and other establishment candidates have been engaging in the same kind of economic scorched earth policies that the Republicans have. The only difference is that they've pretended to care about the poor and working class.
This is an election between two old rapey rich white dudes. That's the real problem.
Both parties are so out of touch with reality that it hurts. I'm not going to prop one up while the other does the same things to destroy our working class.
Biden, and the entirety of the political elite in this country, are indeed the shining example of imperialistic greed and corruption. But I would argue that the trump and friends are an order of magnitude worse.
At least Biden and his ilk have the decency to pretend to be human when the lights are on.
And I think that for the moment, ridding ourselves of this morbidly grotesque obscenity is a compelling reason to hold one's nose as one reluctantly casts their vote not for Biden, but against the trump.
I don't know of an election that has been as important.
So, for argument's sake, lets say that's true. If this is the most important election of all time, do you send in your best, or do you send Joe Biden?
Do you send a crack elite political commando, or do you send an out-of-touch elitist who gets flabbergasted and can't order pasta from Olive Garden without making a gaffe of some sort?
If this is truly the most important election of all time, the DNC should be tried for treason to this country.
Both parties are pulling the wool over our eyes... They always have been, and they always will. As long as people keep buying into these binary choices, we'll keep getting a string of second-rate candidates who are there for the sole purpose of propping up the status quo.
The more you accept those "little" evils, the more evil you'll get.
This country needs a fundamental change, and it could have used it years ago... I'm still waiting for that hope and change that Obama promised, and I was told that we were getting the most liberal president ever... That didn't happen. Now, the right is calling Joe Biden a marxist. If Joe Biden is a Marxist, and that's where the political compass is set, we're in for a very bumpy next few election cycles. How much further to the center-right can the DNC possibly go?
That's a question you really need to ask yourself, because right now, we're running what is essentially a 90s Republican candidate as a Democrat. And one who's vehemently anti-gun at that.
If that's ok with you, then vote for the guy... but I can't hold my nose for this shit any longer.
