    I know there are a lot of Trump fans in here, but for those who have not yet voted or made up your minds, I would like to submit to you two reasons why I think Biden is the right choice.

    #1. He wants to mobilize truinanashabadepresure


    #2. He wants to give people badakatcare

    I don't understand how such a mature political machine like the DNC can come up with a candidate like that - were they that scared of Bernie? Is the system that flawed?

    Actually it makes you wonder about the system that allows two candidates like these to emerge at all .... I think the "experiment" has shown what happens when you put a loose cannon in the Office , but the alternaive looks worse

    The Dims have gotten too weird. It's now the party of Marxist transgendered illegal immigrants. Biden is obviously suffering an age related mental decline. Compare how he speaks now, to how he spoke in 2008.

    On the late 2000s financial crisis - regulations were relaxed to make it easier for minorities, and people with bad credit to get mortgage loans. And therefore be able to own their own homes. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The US real estate market was turned into a giant Ponzi scheme. At the point no new money came in, the whole thing collapsed.

    Bush's regulators here are trying to bring attention to what's happening, and being beaten up by Dims in Congress.

    All the more reason to arm all citizens!

    My opinion is all US citizens should be required to carry a firearm everywhere they go. If they have issues with violence, guns, or killing, they are in luck. They wouldn't be required by law to carry bullets!

    As regrettable as they are, mass shooting events account only for <1% of all events ( https://foac-pac.org/New-Study-Says-mass-Shootings-=-Less-Than-1-Percent-Of-Gun-Deaths/News-Item/6581 ). Especially when people are calling for draconian steps, we need to keep things in perspective.

    Further, you cannot stop mass events, as France and NYC proved it's very easy to rent a box truck and mow down a bunch of pedestrians and get the same results. So, the problem isn't the tool of choice, it's the user.

    Red flag laws are flawed from the get go, as people have rights. Witness the most recent Indiana shooting. The FBI investigated the guy, but because he hadn't done anything, yet, they couldn't seize his weapons.

    It comes with living in a free society. People will do crazy things.

    John they just don't get it.
    As soon as 'they' start talking about other forms of 'killing' method you know 'they're' grasping at straws and you'll never get any sense out of 'em.

    The Leftists in the US don't even want the cops to carry guns. So how are you going to stop the rugby player gone mad ? He dropped those cops like a bad transmission.
