  1. No one has to answer your questions. If they ignore you, take it as feedback.

  2. Well, at least you've gone from "a few fringe theories" to "as though I have said outright this theory is incorrect" Keep going! But seriously - I can't block you, I'm the admin here. You don't seem to like me, and that's fine - in politics, lots of people aren't compatible. But perhaps you should just ignore the main threads where political discussion sometimes comes up. This sort of back and forth isn't sustainable or healthy.

  3. I'll take a vacation from my hermitage to say that I'm the one that designed 2020. Anthony had the final say on anything if he had a strong disagreement on anything, but any disagreement he had was not as politically biased as he (or any of us) can appear on the threads.

  8. Personally I do not think Private companies should have any say in the machines like manufacturing or anything else. I believe that all voting should be by paper ballot and hand counted, yes even in major cities, even if it takes a while to find out results. I believe that it would be quite easy to change what contractor a state uses for their machines and data, but just up to the state legislatures. I am quite interested in what Georgia and Arizona end up doing in the next year leading up to 2022. Its all by what the states want and do not federally but honestly I would like to see the FEC ba

  9. I can only speak for my home state of Minnesota, but yes the regulations must be changed to make everyone who feels disenfranchised some confidence that their vote really mattered and counted. A few weeks prior to the election I placed an online order at Taco Bell and when I got their I did not give the same name that is on my account Jake vs. Jacob and I was forced to show my Id to get my order, but when I went to vote all I had to do was say my name so they could check if I was on the list and boom. I got my ballot and voted it and put it into the machine. Why should picking up a Taco Bell

  15. I don't think it will be an active issue (but who knows, maybe some more viruses will accidentally escape from the Wuhan lab?), but the Biden administration's handling of it might be an issue. I see that as more realistic for 2022 mid-terms, though. My best guess is COVID-19 is basically done - massive drop off in numbers of documented cases in the U.S. (globally as well), starting before the experimental vaccine rollout was happening in any significant amount, BTW. SD is a good example - I think, like typically happens with viruses like this, it was a rough couple of months, but now they

  17. Peter Navarro broke down the Trump agenda into five points: “Let’s understand the source of the resilience,” said Navarro. “Basically it’s the five points in the Trump administration policy compass: the tax cuts, the deregulation, fair trade, you’ve got strategic energy dominance, and you’ve got strong defense spending. I am fully anticipating a second Trump term. If you have a flip of any or all five of those, all that resilience goes away.”

  18. I've spelled it out before. Non-interventionist, pro-American manufacturing, pro-'fair' trade, pro-constitutionalist judges, pro-energy independence, anti-illegal immigration are some of the big ones.

  19. I don’t care if he can win the nomination, he would easily win that even if you combined the field against him. I mean the power ranking in terms of best chance to win back the White House from sleepy Joe. Trump is 3rd bc I believe DeSantis and Tucker can use a similar platform and keep his base if they were to win. trump being off Twitter might actually help him long term. Im Deeply concerned he’ll never win back those swing state suburban voters if he were to run in a general.

  21. Actually, really interesting personal anecdote here. I went for wisdom tooth "surgery" recently and the doc pumped my jaw full of a concoction of weird numbing drugs. I don't know what was in that mixture, but man I felt literally nothing the entire operation. Oh, they were also filling in some stuff too.

  22. This is a good idea - maybe I'll do it! Seriously, I didn't design 2020, and probably won't design 2024. I really don't want bias in the campaign, and seek feedback to balance any designer biases (which always exist).

  28. Moreso making a generally-directed commented despite the necessity of having to play off your quote here, but Americans, regardless of party affiliation, would be better off leaving these two codgers and their failed ideologies and ideas (and circles of cronies and sycophants surrounding them who parrot them as if they were the words of Pantheist masters on the mountain), and embracing fresh new leaders and ideas that don't already have a track record of failure. Do Americans REALLY want to shackle their political system for eons like the corrupt political disaster in Argentina, where all poli

  29. VERY interested in this speech he's giving Sunday. The silence fro his camp since inauguration reminds me so much after Obama made fun of him at the Correspondent dinner. An angry Trump is the worst Trump to go against. the king of comebacks. I'll probably take the betting odds on Trump vs 84 year old Biden. And if he runs for the GOP, he'll only be helped by loony tune never Trumper's going against him. Democrats better hope he runs unopposed. But more than anything I'll take the odds he bats 100% in the 2022 elections with candidates he endorses. Isn't he at

  31. Ya, at this point it's not clear Biden will be running again. I think he *wants* to run again, but he's already in obvious cognitive decline. 3 years from now? But you're right - 2024 will to some degree be a referendum on the previous 4 years. My guess is Republican-held state legislatures are going to make significant moves to do what they can to tighten up voting standards.

  32. Trump will be headlining, Pence won't even appear. That tells you a bit about the current trajectory of the Republican party. Since Trump only gets 2 terms, it might actually be to his benefit to coincide his 2nd term with Republican majorities in both the House and Senate. If he could do that (a huge 'if', of course), delaying his 2nd term might actually be to his benefit. My guess is, that's what he's thinking, and he's going to be working very hard to bring that about through 2022 and 2024. I think Trump winning the primaries is likely at this point (barring any significant declin

  33. @Patine Since you seem to think this is a 'fringe theory', here's a recent link. https://dailycaller.com/2021/02/21/matt-pottinger-wuhan-lab-china/ The Fmr. Deputy NSA says "the evidence that the coronavirus resulted from human error in a Chinese lab “far outweighs” other theories" and the current NSA "cast doubt on a forthcoming report on the World Health Organization’s investigation in Wuhan into the origins of the virus" and has "accused the Chinese government of withholding raw data from investigators." They're not joking, and neither am I.

  38. I don't know. I think of a country, defined by its borders, citizens and laws as a big family. I don't wish ill upon foreigners. I just don't have the same empathy. As long as a single person in my country is economically insecure I think their needs should be prioritized.

  39. Russia is NOT the U.S.'s greatest threat. The greatest threats to the U.S. are various socio-political and economic engines of evil attached to both Duopoly parties festering within the nation, corrupting, dividing, killing off, screwing over, and lying to the people of the nation, and being made safe from meaningful consequences for their TREASON and SEDITION by the powerful connections and puppet strings they have.

  42. Charisma is different than likability. Look what the media did to Romney. It would not be very difficult to make Cruz look like the devil and a total madman, lunatic, evil human (as they did to Romney, as they did to McCain, as they did to Trump etc). There were just way too many gaffes I saw him make in 2016 that narrowed his support. We're looking for the most mainstream candidate who can avoid having the media come at them with pitchforks other than for their platform. A difficult task but in many ways I thought Cruz over performed bc of Rubio and Jeb flailing.

  47. General comment: the GOP's nomination process is different than the Dems'. Democrats take cues from party leadership, and endorsements mean a ton. People who win tend to be party insiders. For republicans, name recognition is everything. Whoever fights the most and gets his/her name out wins.
