And what do these idiot liberals propose to do with us "deplorables" who won't just quietly go away?

Re: Slate: Trump Is No Longer the Problem. His Army of Followers Is.
After four interminable years of feeling like turkeys who’d been stuffed full with Donald Trump—his voice in our ears, his tweets waking us, his erratic moods and feuds dominating all that passed as political news—we find ourselves now in this strange interregnum. Having spent years training ourselves to ignore that which threatened to consume us, we are faced with the fact that even his vanquished ghost will not leave. Yes, Donald Trump has lost the election (hasty reframe: Joe Biden has won the election!) No, there is nothing Rudy Giuliani can do to change that outcome in the courts (hasty reframe: The courts have batted down almost every single lawsuit Rudy has filed!). And yes, in a few short weeks we will mercifully never, ever, need to have this man occupy all of this space in our brains again.

But for now, how much space in our brains should he continue to take up? How do we deal with an artlessly attempted coup that is formidable yet somehow not literal? Can we ignore him into oblivion—a move that hasn’t worked yet over the course of five years? How are we back to the same debate about whether this is a catastrophe for democracy or a nothing? And does the power to make that decision rest with us in the first place?

After all, this long national nightmare is meant to be over. Right? Right? So why is it still playing, in its endless variations, on a loop? For starters, we have spent the past four years in an abusive relationship with this man, and that doesn’t simply end. One hesitates to proffer the analogy, but as his niece, Mary Trump, has observed, the most dangerous time in any abusive relationship comes when the victim attempts to leave. One of the reasons it is not quite possible to exhale, more than two weeks after the election has ended, is because Donald Trump refuses to concede. That’s his problem. But in the meantime, do we really have to watch him rage and tweet, bouncing off the walls of the White House in a fury, and expending whatever capital that remains to him playing with the troops, and firing everyone who brings a lick of stability to the current, rather perilous situation, and working fiendishly to disadvantage Biden’s transition team? Having lost in the courts, his new work evidently lies in emboldening obscure local election boards to nullify their voting tallies, calling them on the phone to exert pressure, inviting them to the White House. That means that even postelection we are still stress monkeys. He still has eight weeks remaining in which to break things and burn things down.

They really thought this was all about President Trump, and if they got rid of him the movement would fade away?

God did not choose Biden, The hysterical far left media chose Biden. They live in a fantasy and they continuously support the fake media's charade of the day. Their biased and misleading narratives used to promote and publicize their political point of views are failing. They have always failed! If Troy Trainer, the US Federal Election Commission Chairman, if Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell says the 2020 US election is illegitimate due to widespread fraud than that is what the courts will have to determine. Not the hysterical far left media who will not publish and spin the facts and truth.
 Quoting: MrCoolone


How did Biden wind up where he is? The choice in the Primaries was either him, or Bernie, people knew that an old psycho communist couldn't win the General Election, so Joe won. Then in the General election, you have a choice between Trump and Biden. The media has been telling people for 4 years how bad and evil Trump is, soooo...they had to vote for Biden. Biden never had "supporters", he was always considered to be the "lesser of two evils".

Such a good piece of writing congratulations. At last a thinker on this site.. Lets hear more from you. Yes there are 2 weeks left for his female lawyer to get her evidence in front of the courts. Hopefully they have run out of time. But Im sure this last desperate attempt will be tossed into the bin like all the others.

I’m About 90% sure Trump will be re-elected when this is done playing out. Liberals should start coming to terms with it. The head of the FEC has already said publicly that there’s enough evidence of wide spread fraud to invalidate the election, regardless of what happens in the courts. When that happens each state gets one vote. There’s 30 republican controlled states. Trump wins!

The Don sure did a number of some people. But, he did not do it alone.

Imagine if you will.......

No Russia-gate
No Impeachment
No Malicious relentless attacks by the media at every turn.
No bias censorship on social media
No BLM/ANTIFA Rioting
No defending himself via twitter, for all of the above

Now, if you can imagine all of that, just think where we would be right now? Just think of how different the perspective of the average citizen would be?

And just for fun, just imagine how this election might have turned out if there were zero inconsistency's, zero glitches, and actual righteous people manning the poll stations.


Oh what a wonderful world it would be....
