  1. I think not wanting to be President is what made Coolidge so great. If you're a President and you love your job, you're doing it wrong.

  2. Anyone who says agriculture is kidding themselves. Trade wars and big oil getting waivers have absolutely crushed the farming economy. Not sure how anyone can claim he has helped the Ag economy in any way.

  4. Tom Thilis because his opponent is unfaithful. Tommy Tuberville because he’s a fresh face. I want to see new younger republicans in safe red states. Mark Curran because he seems to have integrity from what I’ve read on him. He is also much more moderate, and abandoned the democrats in Illinois after the scandals of Rob Blagojevich (corrupt govenor). He spent a week in jail to protest for jail reform. He also has no chance, but I’d still vote for him because I want to see more politicians like him. Not old fucks who have held office for a billion years and don’t care about their const

  5. None. I don’t think any of those is really that socially liberal. If I had to pick one, then maybe John James.

  6. You seem to arbitrarily declare anything published or broadcast in any media that criticizes Trump in a more in-depth and detailed way than the simplistic and oft-repeated "gripe-lines," of his political opponents automatically, by your fiat, is "not credible." It calls into high question and dubiousness your own credibility in this area of rhetoric.

  7. Virtual debate would also open up various shenanigans (remember Biden's interview teleprompter?) for both sides.

  8. That's Michael Wolff's book - not credible. Trump has a massive ego, invested huge amounts of money and time into his bid, his wife stated publicly she told him 'You know, if you run, you're going to win'. Having said that, did the gravity of winning the office start to sink in when he realized on election night he had won? Probably.

  9. https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/08/politics/second-presidential-debate-virtual/index.html The mods being able to cut off the mic would be SO good for him. He would actually let Biden talk and considering Biden's gaffe records Biden may not have a good day unlike at the first debate. (Biden also couldn't get out a sentence Trump was constantly talking over him)

  12. Hard, unbending, pervasive partisanship everywhere, as I scolded him about just above on, is not only killing American civility, progress, and society - it's killing the very sense of American humanity. @Conservative Elector 2's post very clearly and glaringly displays this. The whole U.S. mourned for Kennedy in 1963 - such a thing would not happen today...

  14. What are you talking about? Where? The average poll had Clinton about 5 pts vs Trump, although a few had her +10, but those were not the average. Biden is averaging +10.

  15. North Korea was an exchange of bluster that led to an unprecedented summit of leaders encouraged by Dennis Rodman, the only human being on earth who had previously personally met and had significant conversation and positive interaction with both Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un previously, Syria was only ever a despicable example of the crime against humanity major power leadership should face trial over that is Cold War-style proxy war, and never anything else, Iran was two false flags that never escalated because everything saw right through them and no one was hoodwinked or taken from the star

  17. I just want to say that it's the highest point for Biden since he ran against Trump even as a candidate in the primary.

  18. This might be one of the best attack ads I've ever seen. Tuberville's track record as a coach/quitter coming into play.

  19. Despite being a Republican and then a moderate independent (voting for the most moderate candidate regardless of party) for most of my adulthood, I can no longer even think about supporting a Republican candidate unless they've been a firm "never Trump" at almost every step of the way. As none of these candidates are on my ballot, I haven't taken the time to study which, if any, might meet that requirement.

  20. I dont know enough about some of the other states but I like Ben Sasse. If I were from Maine I dont know if I'd vote for Collins... but I think overall shes a good Senator. For the others I either dont know enough about them or I don't support them.

  21. It doesn't. It surely explains why he would do these things, but not why he would not want the second term in the first place. He wants to be President forever.

  22. Crap. I voted too early. Put me down for Sasse because the Dem nominee is disgusting.

  24. I've been doing some more reading on how polls work lately. I'm coming to appreciate how complex it is. I think a lot of people have this idea that there's 1. reality, 2. a simple way to randomly sample that reality, and 3. the poll result. Instead, step 2. involves all sorts of things - and has to. Pollsters try to factor in all sorts of things - because of course all sorts of things factor into who votes. And this is assuming they actually want to get the correct result (as opposed to a partisan result). Often the models, data sets, or methods are proprietary - sometimes not even competitors

  26. This is for @TheLiberalKitten. I've been playing nothing but PI all day and I decided to make Dukakis the President. Enjoy. 1992 was close. Dukakis learning from his mistakes in 1988... decided to play a bit more dirty this time around. Mario Cuomo was projected to win the Democratic Nomination but... Dukakis made a last minute deal with Bill Clinton and in exchange for the promise of the position of Vice President; Bill Clinton endorsed Michael Dukakis. He was the nominee once again. The map didn't change much... but surprisingly... Election Night was very different compared

  27. It's super funny because upon @ThePotatoWalrus first comment I was thinking about responding with "and Ike." and here we are.

  28. 2004 saw Bill Clinton face challenge from the Left-Wing of the Democrat Party in the form of Howard Dean. Sadly, Dean failed to gain any traction due to dropping out 3 weeks after his campaign announcement. Bill Clinton and Al Gore were unanimously re-nominated. Bush faced greater challenges in the Republican Party this time... John McCain nearly overcame Bush but thanks to wins in the West... Bush had a small delegate lead when the Convention came. Bush was nominated alongside Bill Frist of Tennessee. While Bush was able to flip Florida... Ohio, Nevada, Miss

  29. The 2000 election would end up being a close contest between Vice President Bill Clinton, and Governor George W. Bush. Bush made impressive gains but failed to gain the critical state of Florida. Which would be decided by 0.6%. Clinton, largely credited of giving Dukakis an opening in the South... lost every Southern State besides Florida. A growing Conservative trend is becoming increasingly apparent after the Dukakis Administration. Will Clinton survive 2004?

  30. Oh and @admin_270 and I’m including “legal” voter suppression. For instance, what is going on in TX. Only one mail in ballot drop off player per county. Some Texas counties are about 100 people. They get a drop off. Harris Co has 4.2 million people. They get one drop off place. They’ve shown videos of Harris Co. people in their cars waiting in lines as long as football fields trying to drop off their ballot. This suppressed urban votes who will vote Democrat in TX by adding the unnecessary hurdle. Mail in ballots are also disproportionately more common from Dem voters according to recent poll

  33. There's been a lot of lying and dishonestly about Abe Lincoln all around. Like any Republican (or non-Republican, but sympathetic to them, like some non-Americans, or certain American Independents), saying the Republican Party of the United States is STILL the Party of Lincoln, despite completely abdicating the legacy as early as the Corrupt Bargain of 1877. There's a big one!

  34. The bigger point is there's little reason to move the debate to virtual. Both candidates can and will be tested beforehand. There's little reason to believe Trump would still be contagious by the 15th. If that actually *is* the concern, why not push the debate back a bit?

  35. Re 2., Trump probably doesn't want a virtual debate because he believes he would do better in person.
