    Trump has said that if there is a second wave we will not close down. Thoughts?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It is not up to him, the first stay at home orders where local. Local governments will do what they think is appropriate for the situation.

    What Trump can do is cut federal aid to states that close down. I know for example here in GA we were one of the first to open. Kemp took a LOT of heat, but at the end of the day with strict rules in place he left it up to Georgians to decide what THEY felt comfortable with. He also ordered those at high risk to stay sheltered in place until June 12th Though really short of requiring people to carry an ID AND medical records around that cannot really be enforced,

    Not legally. Also that would likely insure losing that state come November.

    Donald will demand they re-open, and his astroturfed thugs will arm up and march on city and state capitols to enforce his will.

    or did he seal his win. I have a feeling he is going to win. Biden is not fit ( mentally to be president and as you pointed out in another thread third parties are not really viable on the federal level. Moreover, even if he DOES lose in November guess what he is president for another two months and change.

    How so? I have not seen anything to indicate his handling of this has been a positive for him gaining any ground.

    And?

    depends on how the people in that state felt. I know in GA Kept took a heck of a lot of heat from both sides. Opening early, as you probably know won out.

    Trump didn’t make that decision the first and he won’t be the one to decide it when the second wave eventually rolls through.

    That means that if you are concerned about the "damage" he can do even if he loses it is not as if the votes are counted and he is out of office.

    Donald Trump is a child who holds a man's job. That any right-thinking person could have voted for him in 2016 is baffling. That people would consider doing so again is stunning - it is unimaginable that any person who votes for Mr. Trump (in 2020) is not doing so as an act of pure spite. As of January 2017, I consider myself lucky to not be an American (although he can still do damage beyond American borders, not least here in Canada).

    Having said this, it is astonishing that Joe Biden is the best the Democrats can come up with.

    What happens if for some reason there is not a second wave?

    and everyone knows that under the current system third parties are unlikely to get far.

    What reason do you (or anyone) have to believe that any of this will be over in a few months?
