    And here we go with the "delay the election" tweet...combined with orders to cripple the post office (stop overtime/cut office hours/delay deliveries) and the relentless claim that voting by mail leads to voter fraud...

    This smells like a power grab by the most corrupt president in US history.  

    Also Trump uses a postal vote, so if it good enough for him why not everyone else

    Bolton the war-hawk is back in the picture. Trump's team have rushed to block him releasing his book, which contains claims such as:

    • Trump asking China's leader for help with the 2020 elections, possibly by begging China to buy more agricultural produce from the US
    • Even Trump's most trusted advisors talk shit behind his back about how inept he is
    • There's apparently a lot worse that Trump has done with other leaders than he was impeached for
    • By the time Bolton left, Trump was just as clueless as he was when he started (which is likely still the case, the man's an idiot)
    • Putin was regularly able to use even blatant manipulation tactics to get Trump to agree with him

    The funny thing is that they're blocking it claiming it's got too much sensitive information that could risk national security, which suggests it's pretty fucking accurate. I guess someone like Bolton is just another RINO looking to undermine a guy who has previously registered as a Democrat, a Reform Party member, and independent but who is definitely a real Republican.

    They are also arguing that the book is lies, so why try and stop it

    ...and, as a Constitutionally Limited Republic, the Electoral College is working as designed. Limits the power with States with high population to control those with low population. It forces the President to appeal to a broad swath of the country.

    But you only have to focus on the swing states.  There are many states that rarely change who they vote for.  This gives the swing states a lot of control over who wins.

    Including the 2000 election only 13 states have changed who they vote for.

    That point illustrates the hypocrisy that the left willingly ignores, which is why it makes it so difficult for the right and left to talk to each other.  You are also illustrating the other reason why the right and left can't talk to each other... the right tends to engage in deeper and more complex thought and (from what I have seen) the average leftist isn't smart enough to keep pace with the right as demonstrated by the lefts complete inability to meme.

    So anyone that does believe what you believe is on the left and is to stupid to understand your deeper and more complex thoughts.  If you thinks memes are the arbitrator  of intelligence your are dumber that I thought which is a hell of an achievement.

     Coronavirus is on the rise again?

    IS it not, then why did you post in the Cvoid thread that it is

    They're all three MSM and thus fake news, so any poll they put out isn't going to be objective because it's going to be political first, poll second.

    Anything that doesnt fit the preconceived narrative of  a Trump support is fake news, this is why you cant have a discussion with Trump supports.

    And yet, here's a map of what the districts did.  Trump won with 304-227 votes... that's around 60% of the electoral college votes (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_United_States_presidential_election ).  That big of a margin IS NOT 3%, that's a blowout, and if the polls were actually accurate they would have reflected that.  Hell, had the Democrats done some self reflection and realized that when you run a sociopathic bitch as a candidate, people aren't going to vote for her instead of blaming everyone else on their failure, we would actually see a contender for Trump... rather than a guy that really should be in an old folk's home instead of the campaign trail.

    Yet if you look at the result Trump got 2% less of the vote then Clinton, so the polls were pretty accurate.  Remember the polls dont account for where people live and how this will affect the electoral college vote.  They are a poll of the popular vote which in all but 5 cases is the person that wins

    Clinton / Kaine Democratic 50 + DC 538 100% 65,853,514 48.18%
    Trump / Pence Republican 50 + DC 538 100% 62,984,828 46.09%

    Any idiot can put out a google doc and call it a poll.  If you're going to cite that, it means the I don't need to waste my time with the rest of your post as the rest of your sources are likely just as dubious as this one.

    Also, didn't Trump poll poorly in 2016?  Coincidence?

    The google doc is created by ABC news and The Washington Post, but what about all the other polls including one by Fox News

    As for 2016 he was a behind by not by that much only around 3% in the 6 months before the election

    I am not sure about PvP being antiTolkienesque. One of his main themes is civil wars, the kin strife, the Kinslayings, Arthedain vs Cardolan vs Rhudaur. None of the participants in these is portrayed as purely evil.

    Not a lot of Hobbit on Hobbit fighting


  8. Trump raging at Twitter for fact checking his clearly false tweets about voter fraud.  He says it is an attack on free speech.  Just how dumb is he to not understand there is no right to free speech on any social media
