      When I say something I will do it.
      It is important that you know there will be no more money made on human lives. It stops now people will receive the medical attention that they need. Whether it be a broken toe are open heart transplant. Let it be known your loved ones will receive the care that they need.
      There will be education for all that seek to better their lives. Education is the foundation for a better brighter future for anyone that is willing. therefore if you apply yourself you will be able to attend any college you desire.
      Pollution will stop. There will be no more the depletion of our natural resources. Meaning we will become 100% green energy country there will be a future for our children and our children’s children. I will not only put an end to big oil. I will be taking down all nuclear power plants. This will not only insure our future.  It will create millions of new jobs and bring in a new era of technical jobs that pay.
      The time has come to take the drugs off the street.  There’s no reason for children to be subjected to things like drugs. In this day and age they have enough on their plate. It is it’s time we help people that have a drug problem. We can’t keep filling the jails with our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles. Doing this has not been nor will ever be a solution it is only dragging us down as a nation.
      At the end of the day be assured that your hard work was not in vain. You will keep what you earn. The days of paying income tax on your hard work or over. The wages of yesterday will not support the needs of today therefore you will be earning a fair wage that will support you and your family.
      I will impose a flat tax on everything we buy. Excluding food and food products.
      I will take the federal government out of play on the issue with marijuana.  I will ask that all states legalize and tax it appropriately.  At the same time giving an average individual the chance to own and operate a dispensary. The days of a few Monopolizing an industry are over.
      I intend to turn every home in America into it’s own power plant.
      Giving every American a chance to have a little more. 
      It’s time that we take control of our government.  I intend to cut government by half.  There is no need to to employ lazy criminals/politicians.  American’s have to work everyday. Therefore so should the politicians we employ. 
      As for the bad men of the world you are done. There will be no more terrorizing people. Anywhere. My first day in office I will BRING freedom to a war torn word. War will end and the killing will stop. There will be WORLD peace. ……………………. VOTE for The AMERICAN PARTY. … IT’S TIME WE THE PEOPLE HAVE A REAL WORLD LEADER. It’s time to liberate our WORLD…

    • All votes should be counted regardless of which party. The people will decide.

    • @DARLA NEWCOMB It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

    If we stop vote counting right now biden wins.

  3. Jermaine Smith | November 5, 2020 at 1:37 PM | Reply

    Child-like behavior. Trump talks about a rigged election..but wants to stop the count..which would be cheating.

    • Nephilim Glass – That isn’t happening.

    • There is another perspective though. Should you count all votes, or only the ones that can be verified as legitimate? Trump’s team do have a plausible argument – it shouldn’t be enough to demand the losing side prove votes were legitimate in order for them not to be counted – rather, the onus should be on those who oversaw the election process, to prove that they were.

    • Nephilim Glass | November 5, 2020 at 5:10 PM | Reply

      @Cori MacNaughton ….you’re right….those buildings with ballots being counted in them where there’s only Democrat watchers inside while the Republican ones bang on the doors & windows screaming for transparency of the votes….yah, sure, must be false….just like the dead people voting for Biden in Michigan….or the “not fraud at all” law that the governor of Pennsylvania passed stating ballots without a dated post mark from the USPS, showing they were mailed & received by the appropriate time & people, are valid & that signatures do not have to match….sure, that’s absolute honesty isn’t it? Just cuz you won’t leave you’re echo chamber doesn’t mean all that you disagree with is a lie…I’ll keep hoping for a better tomorrow & you & yours can continue with your 4+yrs of hatred & judgement….

    • Nephilim Glass | November 5, 2020 at 5:32 PM | Reply

      @katy bassett I’m sure the DHS sting won’t find anything either. Cuz every ballot has the water mark that everyone knows about….huh?

    • LOL “childish” is the word for dumpty Trump..NOT child-like…Trump has begun his second-childhood journey since he entered the WH in 2017 and the pace has picked up and accelerating and his condition is worsen by his own CON-virus

    • Voix de la raison | November 5, 2020 at 2:53 PM | Reply

      When every vote is counted, one thing will be clear… Trump Lost and American Democracy Won. America will have a chance to repair the damage Trump has dealt our Democratic Institutions. The work will require both Decent Democrats and Decent Republicans and may take a decade or more. We all should thank God for this do over and not screw things up.

    • @Colin Mahoney you are so right!! I screamed “Treason” at the TV when l heard it. I later learned the actual definition of treason and realized l should have yelled Traitor.

    • THE ONLY WAY I CAN POST IS AS A REPLY THEY ARE TRYING TO CENSURE COMMENT If Biden is declared the winner it will be the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people how can you elect a man who is probably implicated in a corruption and money laundering investigation of his son Hunter, B L M Bidens laptop matters.

    • Great Grandson Of Adam | November 5, 2020 at 3:38 PM | Reply

      Hey Trump, how about doing your job as President until all the votes are counted? You been missing in action since the start of your campaign and yet receiving your monthly paycheck courtesy of the American Taxpayers (your employer).

    • @General Eric In reply, l will ask you how can you support a man who has directly or indirectly murdered over 230,000 of American citizens by not recognizing the threat of a pandemic, after being warned February 7th that the virus was airborne and then politicizing the only real protection we had by discouraging the use of masks, insisting it was a democratic hoax. The man who trashed the economy, was so desperate to see the economy reopened that his sycophantic governors reopened way too soon and further increased the spread of the virus. Trump held rallies because he needed to hear the adoration of his followers, many of whom caught the virus and died like his friend Herman Cain. Trump’s tax cut didn’t help the middle class, it helped the wealthy. There has been permanent job loss under Trump. The economy slowed under Trump even before the pandemic. He inherited a booming economy from Obama and proceeded to do what he has done with everything he inherited. He ruined it. He had one of the worst, if not the worst 2nd Quarter in history and then stated the economy was roaring back in the 3rd Quarter. The only reason it looked so good was that it was compared to the 2nd Quarter, and still had not fully recovered to where it was at the beginning of the year. These are facts, those are nasty little things Trump ignores. The country has become less democratic and more fascist under Trump. Our allies have been abandoned in favor of autocratic, fascist, and Communist dictators. Rudy Giuliani has become a reliable joke used by foreign adversaries to spread disinformation. Fox News spreads lies and gets away with it because they are “entertainment.” That being the case, they should rightly be called Fox Entertainment. And all you stupid Trumpists can respond with the fallacious and slanderous statements about Hunter Biden, a mythical hard drive, and mythical payoffs. It is ti that you face the truth. Trump and his kids are grifters. Ivanka’s multimillion patents from China, Jared’s gross mishandling of supplies during the pandemic, Don Jr. and Eric’s making money hand over fist running the Trump organization and collecting money from Russia are all OK, but Huter Biden is fair game from rumors, lies, and distorted “facts”, but Trump and his family are Mr. Clean? Get real.

  7. This is an amazing attorneys general. Trump and his cult are poor losers!

    • trumpanzees prove they are anti American

    • LandARCHConcepts | November 5, 2020 at 3:59 PM | Reply

      Trump and his cult are mentally ill – reality is too much for them. Metaphorically this is like children being consistently told that Father Christmas is real beyond the age of 6, 4 years later at the mental age of 10, like Tantrum Trumpy all are now having tantrum and stomping feet with many tears: ‘but Father Christmas said it was going to happen’!

    • @Michael John
      Putin calls you a propoganda bucket.
      Call your handler.
      You’re full!
      Dasvadania Comrade!

    • @Michael John But there are already observers of both parties and independent inside ballot counting stations. A mob gate crashing the counting area? Really? What would they even know to look for? It’s absurd behaviour (not to say illegal) and stems from being brainwashed by Trump for the last few months: either I (Trump) win or the election is rigged.

    • @Fortescue they didnt allow observers in Philadelphia and a judge ordered them to and the stopped count why would Democrats not want observers when its law

  8. Any American who demands voting and counting be stopped literally has no idea what democracy is. What total morons

    • wiremantw Freedom & Liberty Forever | November 5, 2020 at 5:42 PM | Reply

      @Fortescue No sense trying to paint the picture for a blind observer like you.
      Only democrats deliver ballots to the counting stations 2 hours after all election activity have been called to a stop!
      PA, MI, AZ, WS.??? Who delivers ballots in ice chests???
      How does a district with 6.278 registered voters have a ballot count of 8.728???
      How is that possible???
      Democrats say its all kosher though???
      Voter Fraud doesn’t exist right. lol.
      Boy does Trump have a good legal case to be made now.
      Joe should have at least a 7% margin over Trump if all those polls were TRUE.
      It sure wouldn’t be this CLOSE if every body hates Trump !

      @Fortescue The evidence has been AIRED on conservative outlets all over the internet!
      Just because you only watch CNN or NBC doesn’t mean you get the News!
      You get the democrat propaganda and that is all you get from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC.

      @Fortescue Bet you haven’t noticed that MSM is not concerned about Covid19 since the election.
      If the SCOTUS gives Joe Biden the win I bet Covid19 is reported on with a drastic change of miraculous reductions in reports on it & lower cases of infections around the world.
      If Trump wins its Propaganda as usual no change just AMP it up again.

      @Cornell Howard Any evidence of Trump corruption?
      Trump just took off his boxing gloves for this bare knuckles fight & the democrats have already had their day in the courts demanding state election laws be changed & were granted those rights.
      Now its Trump’s turn to use the SCOTUS to get a Ruling on Election Rigging by the Democrat Party to steel the election through all means available to them.
      If justice is what we are after its all good in the end.
      What if Joe Biden is found to have been laundering money by the FBI and gets indicted? A lot can happen before January.

      America you have a problem! It seems 40% of your population have never grown up into adults, they: believe ridiculous fairy stories, mock disabled people for pleasure, hate anyone different to them, think that being in a big gang makes them tough, lie to get what they want, and become aggressive and loud when it doesn’t happen! So I guess a Biden work creation project could be the building of 10,000 new primary schools for late developing adults, and 20,000 new primary school teachers with a prerequisite of also having either a psychiatric or psychology degree alongside the teacher degree? You could call it the Make America Great Again project!
