A bunch of typical Trump bashing, but not a whole bunch of policy.

The Dems are trying to get some of the rural/blue collar vote back from Trump, so they suppress the leftist/socialist stuff as much as possible. AOC kind of pissed on that parade a bit. Funny.

Anyway, a $15 minimum wage? Open borders? (yes, that IS the policy). Gun grabbing zealotry? Job losing trade deals that revert us back to a service economy? (that's the most important part in my book).


You think the rural/blue collar crowd will vote for that? Not only no, but HELL no.

Trump may be a narcissistic asshole, but empty suit Biden and the rest of them are incompetent losers. Face the actual facts people.

I spent the last five days in rural Colorado and I saw a LOT of this:

So yeah...I agree with you.

The problem in Colorado is whether the rural/blue collar crowd can overcome the liberal SJW's in our cities. We'll have to wait and see.

Does this thread have an argument, or are you just trying to be Limbaugh on a forum?

If you want a reason not to vote for Trump, it's his tax cuts for the rich. After the tax cuts, a working man get's an extra $20 in his paycheck. The rich get $62,000 a year.

What's more, that tax revenue had to be made up from somewhere. The fed cut payments to states and cities, so states and cities raised taxes to make up the difference. Who paid those new taxes? You guessed it, the working man.

This post is pretty much proof that the DEms think Trump bashing will hide their stupid policy ideas. Nope, not working.

CO has become rather Purple. I imagine the State will go Biden, it went Clinton last year. And I have a feeling Hickenlooper will win the Senate seat too.

There is no policy more important than the Republic itself.

And Trump and his supporters seem intent on destroying the Republic in pursuit of their policies.

That is why Biden must be elected. And that is why Republicans need a time out for a decade or two on the national stage.

Okay, I was just checking.

Carry on with the hooting and hollering and whatnot.

I assume they are saving "policy" discussion for Biden to lay out himself. But clearly, the have gone all in on this election being decided on personality, not policy. I like Biden. He seems like a nice guy. But do I want my crazy, senile Uncle Joe running the country? Hell no.

The cuts were to the corporate tax rate. That makes them more competitive in the world market, and keeps capital HERE. Corporations (in the US) provide working people with something very important. JOBS. Jesus, think for yourself for 15 seconds and forget the propaganda.

I can't begin to understand why, in my state for instance, a rural farmer with horrible health care access would vote for someone that ****ed up their livelihood with a trade war, wants to deport the main workforce on the farm, and is getting nowhere on promised health care reform. They screw themselves over by NOT voting in their actual interests because of falling for propaganda like the OP.

It is not all about personality. We heard stuff about amending the ACA instead of abolishing it. That is policy.

What’s wrong with a $15 min wage when it’s not even a living wage? What was said that makes the Dems border policy an open border policy (maybe you don’t know the definition of an open border)? What gun policy was explained that would be definitional zealotry? What do you mean “back to” a service economy (we already are) and what trade deal proposed would lose jobs? What is this “my book” you mention?

If you want people to "Face the actual facts", you have to give them the facts, in evidence. Links might help.

Individual business employees get tax cuts on their paychecks. That has nothing to do with corporations and everything to do with their own personal bank accounts. Everyone who ever had a living wage job knows this stuff.

You were clearly watching a lot closer than most of us. Again, I presume they will let Joe lay out his policies himself.

Its a cut in the corporate tax rate. We had one of the highest in the world before it was cut. This created pressure to offshore jobs and capital. To the poster that talked about farm workers, most conservatives have no issues with some kind of a agricultural worker program. But we need to keep track of these people. Not just fling your arms wide open at the border and say "Come on in!" like a damn idiot.

What do you mean by 'open borders'? Do you mean no border controls at all? If so, you must know that nobody advocates that, that's just a boogey-man used to frighten the simple-minded.
Listen. The border between Canada and the USA has been closed to non-essential traffic to limit the spread of the virus. "Closed" means it was open. You could cross it if you satisfied the criteria, if the border agents saw that you weren't a threat. That's what an open border is, one that isn't closed.

You are arguing with 30 years of collected Fox News.

So basically, everybody got a tax cut, and federal treasury receipts have been up every year that Trump has been in office, but somehow that's a bad thing. States are free to tax the hell out of the rich if they want. They certainly do here in CA, and look what we get for it, other than teachers "retiring" on $50k pensions at age 55.

You know what "rich people" do with all that extra money? They invest it in start-up companies that hire people. They hire people themselves to do things like painting portraits and fixing their Ferraris.

I am watching it a lot closer than every poster who would rather lie about the Democratic Party and its leaders than act very intelligent.

You are talking about corporate taxes, not employee income taxes earned by going to work and doing the job. I have always complained about the latter and you are outright ignoring it.

Care to provide a link to the official democratic platform that states "open borders".

Can you provide a link to Trump's health care plan that he promised would be out over 2 weeks ago?
