    I just wanted to let everyone know,.. especially @RushMAN, @Darkhorse, and @JohnDB know that this year in 2020 I will be doing something that I've never done before. I will be registering to vote because it's gotten to the point where I was nearly in tears today thinking about how America isn't the America that I've grown up with. I want somebody to explain to me what happened to the Constitution? The Bill of Rights?






    The land of the free and the home of the brave where everybody has a voice!? I shouldn't have to be walking on egg shells being afraid that if I say something wrong that offends somebody that I'm going to get beat up and or shot for it. I shouldn't be afraid to praise the name of Jesus in public or be afraid that there might come a day where I won't even have the choice to defend myself if I decided to become a gun owner when I move out on my own. (Since I don't feel the need to now.) Yet,.. here we are.







    Something has to be done. I'm not sure what all I can do but having a voice to make a difference is one of the few freedoms that we have left so I'm going to make the best of it. I love my home,.. and my home is America. So this year I'm voting for Trump all the way.

    Good luck with that, gonna keep to my time honored tradition of not voting at all. Only thing that might get me out of my seat is if Jesse Ventura ran and had somewhat of a chance.

    I can sympathize your feeling as if you don't have a voice---but I am diametrically opposed to you politically.

    But I can also understand why you feel as if you don't have a voice--because the President listens to no one. Not his advisors. Not his cabinet. Not his Congress. Not his generals. To our everlasting sorrow, not the scientists and epidemiologists whose wise advice could have drastically reduced our COVID cases and deaths...if he had listened. Not God. That's the scariest aspect of his presidency to me. He has one goal: "What's in it for himself, personally, and his business." 204,000 deaths don't matter. Climate-induced forest fires and hurricanes don't matter. Just his bottom line.

    So yes, I care.

    It's not the America I grew up with. It seems more like 1917 Russia a few months before the October Revolution. I'm not liking the thought of that.

    Youre sounding awfully dire there. I say: take a break from your current media diet and use your own eyes to see just how oppressed you really arent in the USA.

    You’re 30 years of age and are just now registering to vote?
    Were you politically apathetic before?

    You really hate the man, don't you. It's like the hatred people had for Reagan, only turned up to 11.

    If this President hasn't produced the answers for the political, social and economic crises that currently confront nation in his 1st term, why would one have any faith that the 2nd term under a Trump Administration will be an improvement!

    Given that the federal government doesn't posses the constitutional authority to create its own federal police force, this President is making promises concerning the personal safety of citizens that he is not in a position to fulfill - short of creating a police state!

    For America's conservative Christians to put their faith in this billionaire narcaccist in the Wnite House, whose lifestory represents the very antithesis of everything they claim to believe, this is a classic case of self-deception and dillusional thinking of epic proportions!

    President Trump is the better choice. If I lived in the USA that's who I'd vote for.

    Even though I was slightly left on a test I think @MehGuy posted... I really don't associate with the left at all. I'm just not greedy financially and I don't like war if it can be avoided. A lot of the quesitons seemed to address those things. I'm from the UK but I support the 2nd Ammendment and historical Christian values.

    I actually think the UK Political sutuation is for lack of a better word, nonsencial. I've never voted and although someone called that political apathy, I disagree. I'm not apathetic at all.

    His list of Trump failings seems pretty spot on. Perhaps youre assuming such a dismal persona inflicted on the country would inspire hate? You'd probably be right tho.

    It's exactly what it is and we may let it happen because to many don't want to rock the boat. We not only need to rock the boat but break the boat or we may wake up to "Good morning, comrade report to the concentration camp for Christians to die"

    I hate the president's actions. I do not hate him personally. I don't even want to see him in jail, personally, but I realize that it may be necessary because it will be the only way to prevent him from promoting riots in the street and other activities endangering democracy.

    He deserves to be prosecuted and convicted for numerous crimes, but he could be under house arrest and I'd be happy---as long as their was a lifetime gag order.

    "He deserves to be prosecuted and convicted for numerous crimes" What crimes?

    As an outsider and not being the first to say this why do people treat President Trump differently? I've never seen people be so critical of a President before. It borders discrimination.

    As an outsider you don't know the crimes. Ten incidences of obstruction of justice, annotated by Mueller. He got off temporarily from them because he is president.

    Paying off Stormy Daniels and the Playmate before the election to shut them up--and, as Cyrus Vance, Jr. said, numerous other business crimes are being investigated.

    19 women credibly accusing him of rape and molestation.

    He's 74. He will never have to account for all of them.

    Given that the dangers posed by "false prophets" is a repccurring theme in the Bible, one can only wonder as to why conservative Christians have been so willing to place their uncritical support behind Donald J Trump!

    No, no, no you have it backwards. Nobody listens to him.







    I never really felt the need until the love for my country gave me a HUGE wake up call.








    Eleven what? Anyways I do believe that the only reason people are voting for Biden is they hate Trump. The guy (Biden) does absolutely one hundred percent,.. NOTHING!! He doesn't campaign, he always has his teleprompter,.. how is he even going to debate? Nobody can be telling him what to say there. It's really going to be interesting Tuesday night that's all I can say.

    God will hold him accountable if he is guilty.

    I asked why people treat him differently though. The majority of politicians are crooks on some level.

    Biden doesn't really have any particular kind of clothing. He's a rock. He just sits there and does nothing.
