    The one VP pick that could get Biden elected is Michelle Obama. Then Michelle could run for President and have Barack be her VP. Voila, 20 years of Obama's in the white house.

    I'm not so sure. Michelle Obama feels a lot like Hillary Clinton. She's intersectional and got very far by marrying the right guy. However, like Hillary I don't see a lot of the talent that her husband had. The media adores and gushes over her like they did for Hillary, but I don't see a lot of likability. She's kinda cranky, pretentious, and aloof. I don't see that playing in swing states.

    The biggest thing that would put Biden in the White House is Trump.

    Rush Limbaugh said today, in light of recent events, Trump should re-launch his 2020 campaign --

    “All of the language should revolve around a singular promise: to preserve the American way of life ... ”

    Good platform? Enough to keep control?

    Here is the Michael Goodwin/NYPost article which he was referring to --
    https://nypost.com/2020/06/23/trump-can-recover-from-this-goodwin/

    And here is the essay Goodwin was referring to, written by Thomas Klingenstein/Claremont Institute in The American Mind called "Preserving the American Way of Life"

    What is the American way of life that Republicans should want to preserve? It would not be difficult to reach a consensus on this question among Republicans. They want to preserve, and in some respects recover, what Americans thought was the right way of life until a generation or two ago.


    Although we understood ourselves as individualistic, we believed that happiness (a worthy life) requires doing good in this world. And so volunteerism and sacrifice for the common good was highly valued and publicly honored. This meant more than voting and obeying the law: it meant serving in the military and participating in civic organizations, local government and political parties, and teaching one’s children what it meant to be a responsible citizen. For most people, happiness was found in family, church and community.

    Down to Warren or Kamala. Biden loses with either one. Guaranteed.

    Can’t wait to see the GOP ads in black precincts if it is a Biden-Kamala ticket. “Biden and Kamla are going to throw your black *** in jail!”

    In other words, white liberals like the obvious virtue signaling opportunity that comes with having a black woman on the ticket. Actual black voters like the policy agenda. I don't like either one, but it's pretty revealing. At least within the Democratic Party, black voters are getting smarter, and white voters are getting dumber.

    Gotta agree with huisache. The decline is happening regardless of who wins. We have far too many people fighting over and concerning themselves with stupid things and not concerned with important things. Basically, we're a country of idiots.

    Understand this, the election is pointless, blood is the only thing that will win back our lost liberty. The war is here now, it's not going to end because of an election, if anything it will get worse.

    Does anyone here think things will get better because Trump wins? Does anyone think the Democrats will just turn off the riots because they won, they won because of the riots they will continue to use them to take away our rights. They will take away our guns for the protection of the people then all our liberties will be forever gone.

    3 choices

    1. Accept what is coming and know your liberties are gone forever.
    2. Fight the war knowing all of us are going to have blood on our hands.
    3. Fight the war and separate the United States Liberal from Conservative states.

    Discussing with family a number are concerned that should Trump pull off another victory, we’re all very skeptical, the situation may worsen to vicious riots against his administration.

    Even if Trump wins, Chances are he won't live to see the end of his term. There is no way around it, we are in a war. Fight, flight, or accept the outcome.

    Yep. We're basically Rome in the 5th century. Too many people here have no idea how to sustain a country.

    It's not just us though. Most of the West is committing cultural suicide. The only exception would be eastern Europe.

    You guys are a little over the top. Keep in mind that 325 million people are not doing idiotic things. Now, about half of those people may vote for a candidate doing idiotic things like move us toward the failed system of socialism.....

    The recent trend has been toward conservatism, so I don't believe we are spiraling to doom.

    They aren't doing idiotic things, but they care about and politically prioritize idiotic things and don't care about important things. That's what's really killing us. It's not the drag queens. We've always had weirdos. It's the dumbasses taking their kids to see drag queens read stories.

    If calling Black Lives Matter a terrorist organization (which is true) can get you fired or censored, that means we're not winning.

    Your lying to yourself. The FBI, CIA and NSA are all in place and their leadership is on board with the left. The majority of the military might be republican but their leadership is looking more and more leftist.

    They already know they can take away our rights and we won't fight them for it, once they have our guns we are done. We will be the new Soviet Union.

    B’lyad Da!

    This type of language is what I’m talking about. I agree there are issues to address and be wary of, but the media is seeking viewers by showing the extremes.

    Seriously, what rights have you lost and why didn’t you fight?

    Freedom of Speech - Try speaking out on a forum like Facebook or Twitter and see what happens. Try doing an anti-protest and see what happens.

    Freedom to assemble - Try having a meeting and see what happens.

    Freedom of Religion - Try going to a worship service and see what happens, try having a group prayer outside and see what the rioters do.

    Freedom of the Press - have you seen what is happening to anyone associated with conservative ism? They are getting attacked and beaten.

    Lets see what happens when you go out to vote, you think they are going to let you vote?

    The guns will be the last thing they take from us, and when they do, it's over. Our constitution is finished.
