The fact that these two were chosen as candidates says a lot about the state of the US.
are ”better” and younger candidates not available? My father and FIL both take multiple naps a day.....I’m not sure how much governing Trump or Biden does/will do. I hate to say it, but Advanced age is a factor for me. Aren’t these guys woken up in the middle of the night often? Don’t they have 18 hour days?

Didn’t Ronnie have someone pulling the strings in the 2nd term? With Trump, I don’t think there’s a wizard behind the drapes.

boggles my mind that the Dems choose Biden.

what would a 3rd party candidate do to this race?

When I listen to or watch Trump in TV-Land, it seems Trump has kind of just walked away from any attempt to control this virus. No direct involvement.

The economic damage is huge. Trump is acting like some Jesus Freak and thinking "God Will Provide" or that "It Is In God's Hands".

I would think that if Trump really thought that he could rescue the economy, he would be working overtime. Ivanka Trump would be selling designer face masks.

But, I think he knows differently and is just attempting to look Presidential during these times of economic collapse. The most powerful man in the universe is totally weak when it comes to tackling this virus. The house is on fire and Trump is arguing with a prosecutor in New York.

Like Trump, I too see the economic collapse of the American Empire and all I can do is sit on the sidelines and pray.

I hope people don't make the same mistake as Hillary and count Trump out. It's not over until the votes are cast. He can still win...

When commenting earlier just after the Trump performance, I could not remember exactly who Trump reminded me of.

Martin Luther King was long remembered for the "I Have A Dream" speech and Donald Trump for the "I Have A Scheme" speech.

So, I searched my database and found the guy's name from something I had read about10 years ago.

Charles Edward Coughlin

His "Performance: is just like this guy in the early 1930's.

True. OTOH Hillary was one of the most hated candidate in recent history, but still got more overall votes. Biden also plays better with the blue collar workers in key states so he should have a better showing.

How sad and pathetic is it to be a Democrat? All of their cities are burning in anarchy and the very best they can find to go against Trump is child groping Joe Biden.

It's not about overall votes, but I guess the loser can claim that "victory"...you know, just like losing the football game and saying you got more touchdowns but you only lost because the other team scored more field goals.

I am reading the NYT story about how Trump and Justice Department interfiered in prosecutions.
The Ruling Class are setting Trump on fire ... burning him at the stake.
Every day the media is going to throw more kerosene onto the flames.
Trump always planned to stack his campaign stage with Police and Soldiers.
I don't think that any Law and Order person is wanting to stand on stage and praise Trump today.
Trump polling numbers are really going to cave.
The newly elected president will now earn at least a 60% majority.

Biden is going to follow the same foreign policy as Trump.

Biden is going to walk the corporate world while claiming to feel the pain of Poor People like Bill Clinton did.

There was never a weapon of war that Biden did not support?
Biden voted for all the Middle East wars and mayhem,

When the the banking collapse happened in 2007-2008 Biden and Obama did not criminally charge anybody with fraud.

Biden will introduce Martial Law in January next year,

This latest accusation about Trump and the Russian bribes to kill American soldiers is a trip down memory lane for me.

QUESTION: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979.

But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.

It was a strategy of provocation, for the gambit had the effect of "drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap.. . .The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the U.S.S.R. its Vietnam War."

QUESTION: Despite this risk, you were an advocate of this covert action. But perhaps you yourself desired this Soviet entry into war and looked to provoke it?

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: It isn't quite that. We didn't push the Russians to intervene, but we knowingly increased the probability that they would.
--Zbigniew Brzezinski, The CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan, Interview Le Nouvel Observateur, January 15, 1998--

Zbigniew Brzezinski, visited the Afghanistan border in the late 1970s and delivered this battle cry to the assembled Afghan fighters which later went onto to defeat the Soviet Union:
“We now of the deep belief in God, that we are confident their struggle will precede…your cause is right and God is on your side.”
(YouTube Video)

[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people."[/I]
--The Global Political Awakening, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Former U.S. National Security Advisor, Co-Founder of the Trilateral Commission, Member, Board of Trustees, Center for Strategic and International Studies, New York Times, December 16, 2008--

"The Euro-Atlantic governments proclaim their "democracy" as proof of their absolute right to intervene in the affairs of the rest of the world. On the basis of the fallacy that "human rights are necessary for peace", they proclaim their right to make war."
--Diana Johnstone, Encircling Russia, Targeting China, NATO's True Role in US Grand Strategy, November 18, 2010--

“No society will tolerate it if they knew that they... were responsible for violently killing 12 to 15 million people since WW II and causing the death of hundreds of millions more as their economies were destroyed or those countries were denied the right to restructure to care for their people. Unknown as it is, and recognizing that this has been standard practice throughout colonialism, that is the record of the Western imperial centers of capital from 1945 to 1990.”
--J. W. Smith, Economic Democracy: The Political Struggle of the 21st Century (Arizona: Institute for Economic Democracy, 2003)--

Interesting thing is that both Taliban and Al-Qaeda were born (with the help of western powers) out of the resistance movement to the Soviet invasion. The Afghan people wanted to try a socialist government after they toppled their monarchy. They have had to endure years of war and destruction ever since. The Soviets left long ago, Nato will leave soon; and the Afghan struggle with fanatic jihadis will go on for decades to come....

Exclusive: Hundreds of George W. Bush administration officials to back Biden, group says
By Tim Reid
July 01, 2020
----
Erin Perrine, a Trump campaign spokeswoman, said of 43 Alumni for Biden: “This is the swamp – yet again – trying to take down the duly elected President of the United States.”
Other Republican groups opposing his re-election include the Lincoln Project, co-founded by George Conway, husband of Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway.
Trump has expressed contempt for Republican and conservative figures who oppose him, saying on Twitter that “Never Trumper” Republicans are “human scum.”
