Trump appeals to the essentially selfish American Nightmare. The Democrats are a shattered shit storm of candidates that couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery. They don't even appear to understand the concept of a 'piss up' or brewery. They are a fucking shambles.

Honestly if I were an American I wouldn't have a clue who to vote for to keep Trump out for a second term.

Suck it up guys you're going to be fucked by the Tangerine Nightmare for another 4 years. :(

Trump will win by a landslide. Mark my words and mark them well.

Who would want an incompetent and vulgar man in charge of a country for another four years?

The same people that put him there last time!
Yes, but knowing now what they didn't know then, should they/would they vote for him, again?

I lost interest from the moment it seemed like all the remaining candidates with a shot at the White House were all too male, too pale and too stale.  :deadpan:

Except for Trump. He's orange. :deadpan:
I lose myself infused in something more than what they've seen
I'm not a slave to greed
I don't embrace your make believe
I've never been for sale no matter what they think I need

That is true and funny.  :grin:
They're all in their 70's.
They're all men.
They're all white.
And they all pray.
One prays to the father the son and the holy spirit, one prays to YHWH and the other one prays to Beelzebub.

i still think elizabeth warren would have made the best president.

radical enough to pursue profound changes, unlike biden.

practical enough to get them accomplished, unlike sanders.

i would have loved to see donald trump try to talk down to her on a debate stage. she would have handed him his head on a plate.

but as of last night, biden is stepping ahead and sanders is struggling to keep up.

i think this country needs radical change, but it looks like the next administration will mostly have to focus on steering the ship away from the cliffs.






Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

As a white male, I find that a bit offensive.

Yeah, xSilverPhinx, can't you see that being a white male is difficult!?

I think your comment is intriguing, genuinely I do.

What is it exactly about my comment on the over representation of old, white men in power (not only in the US) that you found offensive? Does the fact that you're also a white male mean you feel the need to defend that social and political structure? Did you broaden the context to include white males (which includes you) in general?

There are so many people jumping on the 'bandwagons for the offended' these days...all it takes is a tiny and sometimes playful (because it's better to laugh than cry) jab and there they go hopping onto those things. But this isn't about me, it's about you. So let's hear out your reasons for feeling offended.

I am for the best person winning regardless of race, gender, etc. I think people from all walks of life can be great leaders.

With that said, I feel that white males are looked down upon now. It shouldn’t be that way. Instead of putting people down in order to level the playing field, we should be open minded towards anyone that possesses the proper qualities.

I have to say I have some sympathy with Kusa. I don't like it when I see people slagging off old white men as a group. It's ageist, racist and sexist. How is it different from demonising young black males as a group? That's ageist, racist and sexist is it not?
