But Donald Trump doesn’t care, so long as his ego is fed."

Well, apparently these folks don’t give a shit either.

3,000 DEAD ON 9/11 MEANT EVERYTHING. 200,000 DEAD OF COVID MEANS NOTHING. HERE’S WHY.

To America’s leaders, our lives have value only insofar as they can be used to create a desired panic.

And now we see why Trump will win. America’s white population, still the clear majority in the nation, and still in control of all the countries institutions, will literally crawl through Covid infected broken glass in order to vote and maintain their status quo.
For most white Americans the year 2020 is their line in the sand. They will turn out in droves, and all for the same reason. Craven fear. They fear that the day will come that peoples of color will indeed outnumber whites, and that their new majority will treat whites just as they were treated for centuries.

Trump will win because because Biden and topcop offer people NOTHING. They care only about their corporate base and seek NOT to create meaningful change for the suffering masses, but to double down on more of the same. Offering M4A, a living wage, free college etc would bring the massive crowds out for the dems. But they don’t care. They don’t care.

Lotta white folks, more males than females by far. Looks encouraging to me since the state is at least moderately diverse.

Is a ten-foot pole a justifiable self-defense weapon against a mask-less covidiot?

White political power is very strong in some states, not so strong in others. A huge majority in Alabama for Trump won’t get him elected nation-wide. Upper midwest, the east, and many states in the West go for Biden–and wouldn’t be surprised if FL, GA, NC are in play. Too late for the supremacists. They have had their day in the sun.

I’m not voting for Biden, but he does support a living wage of $15/hour.

I was with a group of Biden supporters yesterday in a Detroit suburb for several hours – none are confident that he’ll win MI. Several are certain he won’t.

Hillary took what was a blue wall in the rust belt and demolished it.

If a Democrat were president, the media would not let us forget that Herman Cain attended a presidential rally in Tulsa for his good buddy who sneers at masks, and soon after caught the virus and DIED. But, the president isn’t a Democrat, so the media are largely silent because the Herman Cain association casts just another damning cloud over Trump. And what about Trump’s brother? If the president were a Democrat, the media would have hounded him until the mysterious cause of his brother’s death was revealed so they could repeatedly exploit it to cast yet another dark shadow over the president. But, contrary to what Trump and his corporate media pals would have us believe, Trump is their love bunny, their cash cow, and he makes great theatre, so they want to keep him around.

Trump seems to be doing his best, in the words of Charles Dickens, of trying to decrease the surplus population which he apparently believes would include his loyal followers. And one of them, as stated in the article, said that he has nothing to fear because whatever happens it will be God’s will which goes a long way in demonstrating that it is next to impossible in trying to talk intelligently to these people. Unfortunately much of that criticism can also be directed at Biden’s supporters as many of them think that they should vote for Biden simply because he is not Donald Trump. All this would appear to indicate that electing the leader of this country is not based upon sober and rational thinking.

An absolutely great article in its powerful logic and its historical understanding. Thank you for the link.

Kinda shines a light on the lie that some whites express to deny that many white people are racists when they assume that POC having any political strength necessarily means white people will be mistreated. Kinda indicates what they know about themselves.

White Americans will vote in much larger numbers for Trump than they will admit to pollsters. His support is exponentially larger than the polls indicate. And the dems, intentionally, offer nothing to improve lives.

Whites control every state except perhaps Hawaii. They will decide which voters have access to vote and which votes get counted. I have zero faith that a fair election will happen by either party. Even as his lead in the polls (which is a mirage) is evaporating, Biden makes no concessions to progressives that would bring him millions of votes. The die is cast and Trump will be re-elected.
