  1. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together. . .

  2. As trump has shown, having the right is not the same as having the guarantee. The question is always “but who will enforce it?”

  3. If all these Michigan militia Call of Duty cosplayers are at the polls, then who is going to mop the floors at the local strip club? 🤔😅😂

  4. Still have time to vote. Don’t trust the polls. People lie on polls. VOTE BLUE.

    • Please use your Constitutionally Guaranteed Right to Vote in MI. When you get your ballot, fill out carefully. Then put your ballot in the Inner Secrecy Envelope, and insert in the Outer Declaration Envelope, and sign it. (MICHIGAN MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL NOT COUNT IF RECEIVED AFTER NOV 3RD, EVEN IF THEY’RE POSTMARKED BY THEN). DROP OFF/DELIVER IN-PERSON, at an Authorized County Registrar Office or Drop Box, before election day Nov. 3rd. Check your drivers license and try to match your signature before signing the Ballot or Outer envelope. If you Mail-in your Ballot late, you can go to the polls or vote EARLY SAME-DAY at a city or township clerk’s office. Information here: If there’s an indication at the polling place that you’ve requested a Mail-in Ballot, you will be given a provisional ballot which won’t be counted if you’re Mail-in Ballot arrives in time to be counted.

    • Nope trump

    • The people who lie in the polls are Trumps supporters because they lack integrity in every aspect of our lives!

    • @T C Why do you choose to be a scum bag?

  8. If the MAGA Cult is so confident about a victory, why do they think they need to intimidate voters? Ironic, moronic, and pathetic.

    People are in Fear of voting…people are in Fear of what happens after the vote…voters and votes are being suppressed…the Court had to order the Post Office to do their work and for the Postal Service to report everyday to court on compliance of the mail.

    White ‘Militia’ groups are walking the streets brandishing their guns and saying they expect a civil war
    Militia- a military force that is raised from the civil population to supplement a regular army in an emergency. The govt has NOT called for a militia to be raised
    -a military force that engages in REBEL or TERRORIST activities in OPPOSITION to a regular army. This is what these groups are doing

    Now STOP calling the US as the Leaders of the Free World. No democracy follows the US down the road to civil war or terrorist threats from its own population

    When Free and Fair elections are held without this interference from the incumbent govt, from internal terrorist groups and the Rule of Law is followed by the government and the people the world can think about where the US stands on democracy

    Until then, the US standing as a democracy is low on the world’s standards.
    The US is NOT the leader of democracy that the world looks to for guidance

    Get out and VOTE! if you don’t VOTE! you don’t have to right to complain about the outcome. Remind your friends of this too!

  11. VOTE BIDEN / BLUE. Get out and vote…polls mean nothing!
    Trump will try to steal the election by hijacking mail in ballots, fraud votes in Florida and Texas?

  12. Who would ever think an American President would call for the harassment of the voting public?

    • He’s trying too do ,as his hero Putin.
      Using a page ,from Putins book.
      He even called too congratulate Putin on his win. lmao

  13. Trump and his family and every silent, acquiescent, oleaginous Republican hate Science, but how is Donald Trump explaining to his pro-life, evangelical base that the reason he alive today is because the advanced science and medical care he received included a line of fetal cells? If not for that he would have succumbed to COVID.

  14. Normal people feel threatened by someone carrying a big gun in a public place. How can any judge defend the right to do something that any normal person would feel threatened by?

  15. No fire arm should be allowed in a polling station PERIOD!!

    Jocelyn Benson is one of the most beautiful Secretary of State’s in US history.

    If Trump wins a second term the United States will be unrecognizable. This country can’t take another four years with Donald Trump as POTUS.

  18. Screw the polls. VOTE!!!! The electoral votes is what will help us. Biden needs to win big because narrow winning will be challenged by Trump which is why they push Amy Barrett is so fast. They did that faster than another stimulus bill.

  19. The US looks like a friggin banana republic from the outside!

  20. People vote! Don’t rely on polls! Let’s take America back from this criminal in office! 💙💙💙
