    Didn’t I also say he was the lesser of 2 evils? I didn’t vote for Trump in the Pub primaries but he was BY FAR the choice for me when it came Election Day as it will be again this year. I don’t need to look in the mirror I’m quite comfortable in who I am. Voting for any candidate doesn’t define who I am or what I believe.

    Oh yeah how? I’ve always believed every person should vote so I sometimes vote against a candidate more than I vote for one. Can you understand that? Can’t make it any more clearer!

    I prefer my leaders to be honest, and have integrity, morals, and core values none of which Trump possesses. Competence would be gravy.

    Let's just say that I'll never understand it. With Hillary, I get it. With Biden, I don't. Say what you will about his politics, but he's a decent man who cares about the country and is only going to serve one term. I don't understand how any kind-hearted person (as you seem to be) could choose to vote for Trump over somebody who is fundamentally decent.

    There are people in the Democratic Party who so repulse me that I would vote for a Republican who has character but politics I disagree with long before I'd vote for that Democrat. So yeah, I don't understand how anyone who values character could vote for a repugnant person to run this country. I'll leave it at that.

    So does Joe have these core values? He’s been in politics way too long to not have his hands dirty. Save me the spill of how respected he is.

    So in other words you don't vote for or support any of them, right?

    99.9% of politicians are corrupt. To honestly think any career politician is honest and with integrity or morals is straight up foolish. If you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.

    @hoyt233, it's totally cute that you think politicians are out there actually trying to do whats best for the country and/or their constituents, so much so you gave me a disagree. It really is.. however, you're just another ostrich with his (her) head stuck in the sand acting like your party and/or the people you decided to trust actually care about you or your beliefs as opposed to the politicians own pockets and their big money donors (ie, big corporations). It would be really nice if that were true, but it's not, and no amount of "disagree" ratings will change that my friend.

    Feel free to offer up words of rebuttal as opposed to drive by ratings (which was actually something the admins said we shouldn't be doing, btw).

    Anyone trying to paint Joe Biden into the same morally bankrupt corner as Donald Trump is being disingenuous. Or is maybe suffering from the Chinese virus.

    You are entitled to your opinion. I'm amazed that you know the hearts and minds of 99.9 % of all politicians. Where is your proof?

    It is tough to be in politics as long as he has and be liked and respected by both members of both political parties. I hear folks say they are voting for Trump and talk about respect and how others have their hands dirty and I think we must be speaking a different language. I seen a lot of things and I've never seen a more amoral despicable man than Trump. Never, and I felt that way since the 1980s. When he gets defeated, and he will because a majority of people are with me, I hope those that saw something else else will be able to accept it.

    Joe isn't perfect, but yes, he's a fundamentally decent man. He has compassion and empathy, he understands loss better than most, and he is kind. He also cares about this country. Donald Trump is the first President in my lifetime who I don't believe does.

    Those who haven't done business with RE fraudsters don't realize that they are out there. They know what they are doing. Not all RE folks are fraudsters, but make no mistake there are fraudsters o'plenty. 2008 did not happen by accident. It was planned, orchestrated and knowingly willingly deliberate. Create chaos in markets, and place your bets accordingly. Oh yeah, didn't he either own or pimp casinos that went bankrupt? I'm sure it is purely coincidental.

    No we have...

    The Democratic Party has been criticized by its own radical base that only old straight white males remain... as if that's a problem of some sort...

    Oh so because you voted for one Black president and refused to show up to vote for one female candidate for president (that's why Hillary lost), you're not racist/sexist?

    I've been told repeatedly by the left that you could still have voted for Obama and still be racist... Hell, apparently America is still racist today despite Obama winning twice... So why is America still racist today despite voting for Obama, but the Democratic Party is not racist today because they voted for Obama?

    Also... I look forward to explaining how leftists aren't sexists in 2024 when they come up with reasons they refuse to vote for Nikki Haley... because apparently the only reason you can oppose a female candidate for president is sexism...

    Then why does the Democratic base see it as a problem that only two straight old white men remain in the race?
