i am hesitant to celebrate until “it’s over.” i am hopeful that all the US and worldwide celebrations will add to momentum, no matter what disruptions he and his allies and supporters throw down, and make it harder for Trump to subvert his firing. But i also realistically expect this psychologically damaged, 100% shameless and desperate individual to continue to seek to throw down disruptions.

Hoping for the best, but please stay ready to stand against whatever disruptions he and his followers may present in coming days and weeks, whether that is court rulings, “faithless electors” in the Electoral College, or street violence.

Wall Street, MIC, and PHARMA won. That’s all that happened.

This should have been a blow-out across the board - but it wasn’t.

The Dem lost seats in the House and didn’t win the Senate and did not flip one State Legislature - Brilliant

And Pelosi is calling it a Mandate.

I had mentioned that one positive was Biden would handle COVID better.

On reflection I think Trump has done and will do in these final two months all he can to sabotage those efforts.Watch him claim "I was only getting 80000 new cases a day under my watch and now Biden has it to 200000.

The euphoria is gone.

Didn’t take long - about exactly the time after a big dangerous mountain trip.

Brain chemicals working fine - in a destroyed world.

Firstly the Mexican president’s feelings toward a Biden win is repulsive taking into account the treatment of Mexicans by Trump ICE, the unfair trade deals with Mexico and the dreaded Trump wall. Secondly i would like to remind the readers that Iran played a pivotal role in the defeat of Jimmy Carter and election of Reagan which was a monumental mistake of epic repercussions.

Game is over for KKK fascist white supremacist psychopath, perpetual lair Trump. No judge with an ounce of justice would or should take his case seriously. Trump should be apprehended and taken to custody to answer for all his crimes before and after the presidency.

ELECTION 2020: ‘Sleepy Joe’s’ Task Is to Put Liberal America Back to Sleep
After four years of Trump and in the midst of a pandemic, the idea of sleeping through the next presidential term probably sounded pretty appealing to liberals, writes Jonathan Cook

Agreed, too bad for now but this is a process, as they say Rome wasn’t built overnight. It took about since Vietnam war for the GOP trash to dumb down America, so it’ll take generations to re-educate honestly and instill truth in new generations.

Agree, but that dumbing down of America was a well funded concerted effort of The Reich: Political Parties, Media, 1% donors, etc.

I don’t think we have much of that on the Left yet. And with the 3rd Way in control of the DP we aren’t likely to get much help with it

I’d like to see how many of these world leaders are rushing to have their pictures taken with Biden next to their young daughters.

How is electing a War Monger good news for Progressive’s let alone America. How is No Fundamental Changes good news for Progressives. Nothing to get excited about.

The establishment wants you to believe things will change drastically, but will not. It’s a mirage. The oligarchy has won again, like they always do. The bonus for them is that we will still most likely have divided government and more gridlock, which is what they want, which is why Wall St. soared on Friday. Their control and tax breaks will continue for the foreseeable future. Nothing will get significantly better for most of us, only the volume of the chaos will be turned down some, and hopefully, maybe, the pandemic will ease a little if the current plan of letting it wash over the populace and kill the weak so the rich can continue to enrich themselves unrestrained could continue will change to one slightly less Darwinian.

But make no mistake, The People lost, and in four years a bitterly unhappy and more impoverished underclass will once again seek another demigod who will promise them what they are looking for, only this time that person (probably a white male) will be far more competent and dangerous to the underclass and what little democracy we have left. The pitifully weak Biden (probably Harris by then) administration, not having sought any real mandate for positive change, and therefore not having achieved any, will have squandered it’s chance and will lose a decisive defeat to the powers of darkness again. Enjoy the reprieve.

Little boy dumpinstein is still the president until January 20 so everything that happens till then is still on him. Though I see you could be speculating what he would say after the inauguration.

Get a second wind my friends, there are many more fights ahead of us. The next battle begins on January 21, though a case could be made for it starting now.

I would venture to say, and it is my own take, that many (most?all?) Progressives are celebrating the demise of the fascist dumpster, NOT the election of a corporate dem.
