If the shoe fits.
I have to agree with what you say but have to heartedly disagree with your percentages which are virtually zero for Trump and considerable less than 1% for the third party option. The probability that we might elect a third party candidate is infinitely more likely than Trump would be a better President than Biden.
The guy has been in my house and regardless of political views or differences, is a very nice respectful person.
You need to back off of talking about people you don't really know!
Statistics don’t really work with your abstract ideas and personal opinions.
Gotta admit....it's a GREAT plan!

yeah, usually sexual assault happens onstage in front of thousands of people.
I'm sorry man, but I think you're off here. Just because they share a suffix doesn't mean that anyone is confusing or replacing one word with the other. That's projection from you, nothing more.
Are you the new forum angry guy?
what happened to that old kooky guy who lived in his yacht and was always pissed at the damn libbys?
They got him.
The Deepstate finally got'm!
Not sure how you can say that. If I called you a platytard, or you could me a torturetard, we'd know exactly what the means. Just as anyone called a dotard, or trumptard, or whatever they know you're insult is saying I have the IQ of someone who is mentally retarded. The "suffix" has meaning. Sure you could maybe argue that projection in the psychological sense is happening on both the one insulting and the one being insulted or offended by it. However, it seems fairly obvious that for the most part when "tard" is added to the end of something like that it is to call someone retarded without actually saying the word. Both the recipient and the sender understand the meaning behind it.
And when it does, it’s sort of hard to deny it happened.
In this context, Trump has certainly had his share of past foibles, but can anyone tell me if he's had any of these types of issues since taking office?
"Don't you ever give Clinton first pick again!"
Anyone can vote for whoever they want, but in my book, given what we have to work with - it is a waste of a vote.
It is like being stuck on a deserted island, being able to sustain oneself by eating electric eel that shocks you when you eat it or catching bugs to eat - neither of these options might be appealing to you but they will nourish you - but if you choose to eat sand with the hope that it would sustain you and become nourishing... It's a waste of a vote.
The time for work on a viable 3rd party is not at the time of selection before 2 that are neither - it is before or after - but at the time you need to make a good choice - choosing to do nothing is the same as making the bad choice. That's my opinion.
You're free to that opinion. I obviously don't agree with it. I believe we wouldn't always be stuck with such bad options of the eel or the bugs if we weren't always complicit in, well these are the two the established parties said we can vote on so, let's work on the 3rd party stuff some other time but you know the time when it actually matters. Because the two established parties have judges and lawyers who have made laws saying you have to "x" amount of votes before they'll put you on a ballot, or let you really run a campaign. Might be able to avoid the deserted island altogether if we hadn't of let the two sides drive us off course so much.
i was wondering the same thing. @SlyPokerDog probably banned him bc the mods are deep state libs
I believe I said 'stuck' on the desert island. This is the situation you are faced with and these are your options. Not getting stuck on the island in the first place is obviously the better choice, but it is not a realistic choice when you are stuck. That's why I said what I said - in my opinion you can advocate and work for the cause of a viable additional parties all the time - but choosing one when it does nothing is a wasted vote. Donating for the 'green' party or passing pamphlets for the 'tortured' party can happen all the time - but it is a long-term goal - and the immediate goal is to choose between really bad and something that is not as bad (or at the very least, incompetent and competent) - with immediate implications. That's my opinion - I do not believe in the cause of additional parties so much that it consumes me to the point of wasting my vote, but if you do - good on you, I just think that logically it still makes not sense given the situation you face.
If we are going to the island example, you can work on building a raft while eating bugs instead of eat sand hoping it will help you survive.
Where did you get this cup post? I can't find it in here. Of course I only searched the last 8 pages out of the 15 total pages in this thread.
ABM, are you kidding? Foibles is Trump's middle name.
