      Ashlynne Shain…democrats are not love…they are a bunch of immature babies that throw temper tantrums that don’t get their way.. When Trump was elected nothing but violence and hatred on the democrat side

  6. There’s still time to vote for Joe. For democracy and for your sanity. Replace death with life.
    Replace hatred with tolerance. Don’t let the insanity continue. Remember Charlottesville.


    • @Mr JOE BIDEN I think you need to learn a bit more about communism. Biden is one of the most right wing democrat candidate in decades

    • @Sun Seeker It’s really not correct to call Biden “right wing.” He’s definitely “old school,” but his voting record puts him right in the middle of the Democratic Party, and he’s gotten more liberal over the years. (However, he’s certainly not “communist,” but that’s so stupid it hardly needs to be addressed.)

  7. Bush was Mickey Mouse on the contrary to Hitler Trump 😡

    • Like that Hitler Trump

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | October 30, 2020 at 12:32 PM | Reply

      Some states allow you to change your vote ESP hearing about the revelation of hunter Biden

    • Not really
      He was stupid and surrounded by truly evil people . That administration cost many thousands of lives, is still costing lives. Much of the horror that the GOP has become can be traced straight back to that hideous administration
      It paved the way to where we are now. Bush et al are still war criminals.

    • William Crowley | October 30, 2020 at 1:50 PM | Reply

      @Elena Latici and this one is going to cost a million, possibly a couple million if he gets a second term.

    • @Thomas Armsworthy Jr your desperation is evident

  8. Right-wing extremist politics have a long tradition in the US. Somehow the GOP never had problems running with men that appeared often challenged in all different kind of ways. Reagan, GWB and Trump are fruits of the very same ideological tree.



    • And there is a direct link between Trump and Joseph McCarthy. It’s Trump’s mentor, Roy Cohn, who was McCarthy’s top lawyer.

    • Yup, you pretty much nailed it. And they use the hatred and racism of poor uneducated people to get them to vote against their own economic interest. And they fall for it every time, so far. Time to change all that

    • @Mr JOE BIDEN You do sound rather confused. Maybe you should consult a specialist. Get well.

  9. Let us all remember that the reason 2000 went to the courts is because it was a very, very close election. Bush and Gore were evenly split in the country and it Florida the difference was less than 2,000 votes. This election is not that

    Ask yourselves…if his trade war with China was SO GREAT….WHY DID HE GIVE FARMERS BILLIONS IN AID????

    • Thomas Armsworthy Jr | October 30, 2020 at 12:29 PM | Reply

      Some states allow you to change your vote..esp hearing revelations about hunter Biden

    • Yes!!! Why did he put them on welfare with tax payer money? How do you explain socialism now?

    • Remember its all about top 1% to maintain their power in WA. Turning into dictatorship like Castro, Hitler, whatever you call it..Trump family is chucking up $ into their pocket using presidency power.

    • RICHARD TOMMOLINI | October 30, 2020 at 1:52 PM | Reply

      And, SHOW YOUR TAXES!!!

    • The farmers became the welfare queens Republicans turned into the enemy in years past. Of course it’s not their fault but they haven’t done anything for the rest of us ..and farmers keep voting for him. That’s the problem. If he hadn’t bailed them out would he get their vote ? After they had to destroy their own crops. Insanity.

  11. The GOP have been cheating and stealing elections for decades.

  12. Please go line up and vote please…., 227k life is gone…😓😓😓, Vote for your future…..💙💙💙💙💙

    The President has let as of 10-30-2020
    1. Let us watch 228,696 Americans DIE.
    2. We have 8,950,742 cases of Covid19 in the USA and growing.
    3. For the two happen on his watch and the LIES as he lets them die?
    4. His TITLE should be “The President that murdered America”
    5. The facts are the Monster is Trump..Donald Trump is using the Coronavirus like a weapon.
    6. Covid19.. This is the Reality. You CANNOT touch the ones you Love. They are ALONE in a hospital. NO ONE they love with them because they could DIE too. Think about that? Sick, Dying , Alone NEVER being able to say i love you or goodbye. HOLD and CARE for everyone you love and be safe. Wear a Mask. Because the next person in a ICU Room could be YOU.

    Watch how the WORLD is truly doing here..

    The more i hear of this Idiots in the White House the more i am reminded of Kim Jong-un of North Korea, Vladimir Putin of Russia, and Adolf Hitler was a German politician and leader of the Nazi Party. He rose to power as the chancellor of Germany in 1933 and then as Führer in 1934. During his dictatorship from 1933 to 1945, he initiated World War II ..

    NOW we the USA.. have Donald Trump .. A man that envies and wants the respect and loyalty of America just like those leaders? A man that calls the KKK good and fine people. We were told that Trump was a clear and present danger to America by many Government Officials..On both sides of the Political seats..the Trump supports acts of violence , racist, rude and just out and out Hateful speeches to others. Over what? Politics..Lies fall out of Trump’s mouth as well as his Family & Groupies like Niagara Falls..Donald Trump at this point should be Considered a threat to the Public Safety and the Nation in this Pandemic at this time..Don’t you like the America Trump has created for us? A man that thinks GOD made him the chosen one to RULE America..I agree 100 % with that Trump is going to do some horrible things if he loses the election because he is a Sore loser!

    I believe in Democracy Biden & Harris!!
    Not Neo Nazi Dictators Trump & his Cronies..

      The silver lining is social security won’t be depleted once the elderly die of covid

    • None of that is true, but whatevs

    • @Thomas Armsworthy JrThis is Republican “thinking” for you.

    • Wizardbane68 68 | October 30, 2020 at 8:58 PM | Reply

      One I’m not a Republican. I wouldn’t be part of someone’s agenda that is planning on taking away American Rights or being racist or being rude and dividing the country. Unfortunately everything I’ve said has been fact checked so sorry people this is reality

  14. Imagine being Trump and saying you’re more popular than Reagan when Reagan won over 500 electoral votes lol. every state but MN lol

    • Ronald Reagan was beloved across party lines throughout the country. When he was shot most of the country was in morning even though he survived unlike JFK’s assassination. You could disagree on politics with Reagan but there was no debate he loved his country and in a crisis would represent all Americans unlike Trump. Biden tries to plagiarize Reagan talking points yet flip flops on major issues like packing the Supreme Court and banning fracking. Trump is likely going to squeak another upset win like 2016.

    • 489 electoral votes

    • @didierPalmira 525 against mondale

    • @howdareyou41 holy 💩 I didn’t realize that I thought the 80 election was the highest. 👍🏽

    Avoid USPS. If you haven’t yet voted you must vote in person but please be safe (mask-up, bring food, water & book or music i.e. make it a picnic or fun if you can). Alternatively, hand deliver your ballot to a drop box or election official office as specified by your state. It is too late to trust the mail system if you want your vote counted. Keep your eyes on the prize & take nothing for granted. We can do this by helping one an other. Good luck out there everyone.

    In the late 1970s Americans who had then popular adjustable mortgages rates were soaring to nearly 20%, 400 or so Americans were being held hostage in Iran. Reagan was a beacon of optimism and an eloquent speaker. In good faith he tried the trickle down economics, which ended up only sending plumes of money up to the wealthiest. During his 8 years the debt ceiling had to be raised 17 times beginning the out of control spiral of US national debt. American manufacturing was also cratering as Germany and Japan had rebuilt and were offering products of higher quality at lower prices. In the 1980s you would have to have your head examined to buy an American car (which would be in the repair shop every week) or a Japanese import that could deliver 250K without complaint. To Reagan’s credit however, when things went wrong, he would admit it, he would own it, he would be honest. That’s what we need today: honesty, integrity and compassion. BIDEN/HARRIS is the way to the future.

    • @Sam195 he has to leave in any way possible.

  17. I wish Ronny would have never won.

  18. Yes, inflation was one of the reasons Jimmy Carter was ran out the White House. Can anyone tell me what we are dealing with now: inflation, inflation, inflation.

    2000: Most robbed election in the history of elections.

    • Yes Fox News declare Bush the winner knowing It wasn’t over. and put Dems on the defense. You think they learned from that ?

    • Charles Phillips | October 30, 2020 at 2:32 PM | Reply

      Oh, I don’t know about that, maybe in the history of US elections, but look outside a elections in Africa or places like Belarus. They don’t even pretend to be fair. And when I was young, I saw film of soldiers guarding ballot boxes while people lined up to vote in the Soviet Union; the soldier would take the ballot, look at it while the person stood there, then put it in the ballot box. This is precisely why armed, uniformed people are not allowed to guard polling places.

    • Until 2020.

    • @Eve until 2016

    • @Roo Harris Yes.

  20. The corrupt GOP and Crooked Trump. Are trying to do the same scheme of 2000. Bush v Gore. They will use the Supreme court if necessary.
