    Hey, man, what does it even matter to you whether Biden is alive or dead? How does it impact your life?

    It doesn't impact me. Its more entertainment the circus that's going on.

    Plus, if Trump wins, the lib tears will be pretty refreshing.

    Will be a sad day in American history when Biden refuses to debate.

    I just don’t see how Biden could make it through a debate, and I’m honestly trying to be as subjective as possible. People can say a lot of bad shit about Trump and much of it would be accurate, but he is still cognitively aware of his surroundings/situation. Biden’s cognitive decline is beyond obvious at this point. And his campaign’s tactic of hiding him away from the public for that very reason is also painfully obvious. Even his short, scripted appearances manage to somehow go trailing off into a foggy abyss. I’ve watched family members succumb to this, it isn’t hard to spot and it’s far from controversial to point it out.

    Say what you will about this post, but the fact is the Dem establishment silently agrees and that’s why they are trying to hide him away from the public.

    Biden made it through a whole slew of debates with opponents much smarter than Trump.

    Not really. He stumbled and fumbled his way through all the democratic primary debates he wasnt impressive then either.

    He won exactly 0 of the debates. Which maybe the point is the debates are meaningless.

    If I could change one thing about our political process it would be comprehensive debate reform.

    Trump was gifted a stage in 2016, put front and center in debates because controversy sells.

    And the moderators are usually bad. The candidates hardly ever answer the questions, they just have points they go into the debates they want to talk about, so every question morphs back into the agenda they had.

    The exchanging of ideas through debate has largely died, even outside of politics. They often argue the person espousing the idea rather than the ideas itself, which might be a logical fallacy... ... lol

    Let the debate begin and all doubt will be erased.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    Edit: The irony is this seems to be the Democrats strategy.
    Let Trump talk enough (usually takes about 15-30 seconds) and he'll say something dumb.
    Keep Biden from talking because he also has a knack for saying dumb things.

    personally, I think the debates are rather useless. Verbally tap-dancing on a debate stage in a gitcha-gotcha format doesn't tell us much at all about the candidates. They do reveal, most times, the shallow horseshit nature of our political discourse.

    If we strip away R and D from these two.
    Horrible president, who is brash, ego-driven, racist, does not understand the federal government. Makes loopholes for himself. Old incoherent half the time rambles lies about stupid things.
    Vs
    Horrible political history when it comes to race, says racist / racially insensitive things every time he talks, understands the ins and outs of governments very well. Makes loopholes for him and his buddies. Old incoherent most of the time.
    - Sorry at some point when Biden just continues to say things that are racist or at best racially insensitive - I think it's hard to build an argument that he's really changed, he's just trying to play politics.

    I legitimately wish these types of people were not the types that American's continue to prop up as their candidates for the 'head' of the country.

    Even outside of Democrat and Republicans these are not good candidates to me.
    It's straight-up depressing that's what it is.

    Settle for Biden if you want that's the campaign slogan after all. Even if we take away the greater narrative of the Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents, etc. I'm not sold that either of these people, especially at this point in their life are fit for being president.

    I think the "GOP" is scared of Trump for some reason, maybe it's the "Trump Supporter" crowd I don't know. I don't know why else they would support him. Seems like a really stupid bandwagon to get in and ride or die with...

    I don't really understand the support for Biden, maybe it's Obama nostalgia since most Democrats really liked Obama. Maybe they thought he was a good puppet, maybe they think since he's old they can run a VP who they can supplant him with. Maybe they actually just really like him, I don't know.

    Not really worth discussing anymore as you have a jaded view of Biden and seem to equate him with trump in which there is no comparison (not even Nixon was as bad as trump). Good luck with your pick.
