I am anti-affirmative action and am voting accordingly. I think CA in general and SF (my area) in general are a borderline banana republic. I had a very good economic 2020. I will essentially be paying 56% tax. Let that settle in.Herv100 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 26, 2020 9:59 pmAre you voting to repeal civil rights protections in CA?lasalle wrote: ↑Mon Oct 26, 2020 1:15 amOK-I'll bite.

Look at the 2nd Amendment alone.

That said, this obsession with Hunter Biden amuses me to no end. Let's apply the same journalistic/evidentiary standards you're using and apply them to Trump. How about:
-a "gift" of $10M in cash from Egypt to Trump
-Trump's bank account in China
-Trump's tax records and dodgy deductions for himself and his family
-The fuck ton of money owed by Trump, Inc to foreign governments, including Russia
-Trump jamming through a $25B no bid deal to Gingrich and other cronies
etc., etc. All all of that is 'fake news', but somehow Hunter Biden will herald the end of democracy? Hunter Biden is trading off dad's name-no doubt-but let's look at Trump's kids.
Anyway, all of this is shouting into the well.
Let's set aside the 2nd amendment. I personally don't think the founding fathers envisioned that Leroy from East Ass, Michigan would need an Uzi, so you and I will never see eye to eye there.
I think the planet is melting, and that more coal and gas is not the way forward. Maybe I'm biased because I'm in CA which is in the process of burning to the ground, but how is Trump going to do anything but deny and drill?
Taxes: Trump has run up RECORD deficits. And you can't blame it on COVID, because he was already there by January 2020.
Maybe Trump is less of a war monger? I'll give you that one.
What else is keeping you up at night about Biden? I'm legit asking, because we as a country don't get to have dialogue with the "other side", and I'd welcome your perspective.
For what it's worth, I think Biden is 10 kinds of mediocre, but candidly I'd vote for a cadaver before I'd want to see another 4 years of Trump and his cronies.
That said, I can't get behind the naked corruption, chaos and incompetence of the Orange One, and their deep embrace of fascism. Yes-fascism. Show me a center-right party that believes in science, and they'll get my vote.
