Just hope that Biden chooses a veep that won’t gag “normal” voters.
If he picks someone who AOC approves of, it will just make it more difficult.

The Devil went down to Georgia
To steal an election or two
He decided to stick around a bit longer
To see how much more damage he could do...

Land of the Free. No-one on Earth has the liberties that US citizens have, including the freedom to be thrown into the back of a van by a government snatch squad.

Y’all know I voted against Hillary. That meant voting for Trump.
Can you tell me WITH A STRAIGHT FACE how she would have handled matters differently, or better?
Be honest. Don’t just spout out s knee jerk response.

The Virus would have come. The US was unprepared. Her reaction?

Career criminal George Floyd would have been killed by the same fascist goon. The reaction by the left would have been identical. What would she have done?

Having said that, I’m sitting out the next election. I don’t want to be held responsible for whoever gets in.
The next 4 years will not be pretty.

I very much doubt Hillary would be pushing chloroquine, publicly contradicting her epidemiologists, and pushing for schools to open ASAP, just for starters. Nor do I think she’d be using snatch squads in Portland. There’s a lot of shit she wouldn’t be doing.

Regarding Floyd being a “career criminal”, his rap sheet is less impressive, in terms of violence, than that of the cop who killed him. Except for one case, it is really penny-ante drugs and theft. And the one case that isn’t... well, let’s put it this way: if Floyd had anything of the type of representation Chauvin’s going to get, I very much doubt he’d’ve ever spent a day in jail.
