    List of trump's accomplishments

    (Sigh) Everyone has an opinion. 🤷‍♂️ Here's one from Bloomberg back in February 2020, before the Covid-19 "blew up." The Trump Effect on the Economy Is Undeniable - Bloomberg There was also all the gloom and doom projections of Trump-caused recessions every Fall through 2019 even before...

    Should Residents Call Police On Neighbors Due To Covid Violations?

    I had to vote other. I personally consider this government request for "informers" against fellow citizens for "thought crimes" as a typical aspect of Authoritarian Regimes. I won't do it. However I cannot dictate how other people should act either. That is also a violation of one's free...

    Thanksgiving and I'll be...

    I have family in NYC, and Best Friends in California. I have no plans to go to NYC because it is a mess with Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio's fanatical authoritarian governments I planned to go to Cali. But Governor Newsom is also being a "tool" of authoritarianism. So I'll just stay home...

    Are the Media Gaslighting the USA?

    No one is going to answer your question because they cannot believe "Orange Man Bad" has any path to victory. Their confirmation bias is too strong. Just like they could not (and many still don't) believe he won fair and square in 2016, choosing to blame "Russian Collusion," and other "cheats."...

    Here's one for the Constitution wonks.

    The problem is that you started off your argument with a mis-statement. The President is not "directly elected by the people." While it is the position of "national leader," it was set up (and still is) for election by "intermediaries." That is what Electors chosen by howsoever the State...

    I suggest you look at my post # 99.

    HOW REVEALING ARE YOUR USER NAMES?

    My member name combines my highest rank held in military service, with my willingness to stand firm in the face of adversity. The avatar pictured is that of Patrick Henry, the man history attributes the phrase "Give me Liberty, or give me Death." It encompasses my view of my socio-political...

    Here's one for the Constitution wonks.

    IMO the article's position is presented on the basis of a fallacious "argument to authority," i.e. "we brought a case to SCOTUS so that means we can tell you what it means." Actually a review of their "argument" shows that the presenters article assumes much on the basis of little evidence...

    I still vote D, but ...

    I am Independent and have no commitment to any Party anymore. I've voted Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, depending on the election. I didn't cast a vote, in deference to not being classified a Democrat. However, I currently disagree with Democrat "policy" on all those areas even though I...

    It's time for Trump to concede and move on

    While I can appreciate your position, I don't agree with it...at this point in time. As I pointed out elsewhere, I voted for Al Gore back in 2000, and he did not concede until 12/13/2000. 12/13/2020 is still 23 days in the future, and I think it's best to let Trump have his day in Court before...

    Here's one for the Constitution wonks.

    Actually, they can. It was State Legislatures that changed the original process in their State's allowing for the popular vote to decide who get's electors. The State Legislatures can change it again, if they so choose. Recall two States, Nebraska and Maine use a form of proportional...

    Here's one for the Constitution wonks.

    Actually, that does not apply to the State Legislature. The Constitution is clear that it is up to State Legislatures to chose Electors, and they can do it as they see fit. All they would have to do is enact the change, and then simply send the electors as they see fit. It might risk their...

    What's worse for you Trump supporters: A fair election where Trump lost or defeating a Democratic Conspiracy where Trump wins?

    Again I disagree. 1. On Immigration: a. He did build more and better border wall, even extending it. This despite complete stonewalling by Democrats and lackluster support from Republicans in Congress. b. He did get not only Mexico to provide border security at our border and their own...

    What's worse for you Trump supporters: A fair election where Trump lost or defeating a Democratic Conspiracy where Trump wins?

    I disagree. Trump is not the same as Biden or Harris in several ways. 1. Trump is not a career politician. The Presidency is his very first elected office. This is important because unlike Biden, Harris, or even any of the Republican candidates he ran against in 2016, he has few if any "ties"...

    Non sequitur. :rolleyes: Fallacious responses are all your side of the argument typically seem to have...with very few exceptions. Yours not being one. :coffee:
