I’ll join you in depising Republicans whose main aim is to eliminate the social safety net, eliminate scientific research, and try to prop up the free market over government services. 

Where is the free market now that we are all kinda fucked?

moonbrooke : if being on a forum with mostly liberal-leaning members is triggering for you, it may be beneficial for your mental health to not view these types of threads.

I am not a mental health professional, but I have linked the suicide prevention hotline below if you are feeling suicidal as a result of what has been said here:

Hotline:1-800-273-8255

Website: https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/

Threats of suicide should always be taken very seriously. I hope that you are able to get the help you need.

I understand everyone is on edge at the moment, but I feel like ‘despising’ people for the way they vote isn’t helpful. Many of the people who have and will die from this are ‘actively doing evil in the world’ because of the way they chose to vote according to your post, so do their lives matter less? And you also ‘despise’ many healthcare professionals who are working flat out to save lives? You are entitled to your anger, but there is a lot of it around at the moment and it makes me quite uncomfortable.

Proud of our President. And, he’s going to win by a landslide this fall. I’m actually pretty excited about it. I never was a huge supporter before this (though, I, of course, voted for him over Hillary at the last election, because anyone would have been better than her, almost). I’m pleasantly surprised at how well Trump has done. 

I do tend to think of Democrats as evil, but I am trying hard not to paint with too broad a brush. Some people I love are Democrats, after all, and I like to think that they just don’t understand how evil the Democratic party is. Evil

emilyofnewmoon :  Unfortunately, Trump supporters will stick by him no matter what. They drink the kool-aid of whatever it is he tells them. The level of mental gymnastics they have to go through to justify his words and actions, is astounding. They are following him into hell but refuse to acknowledge the fire.

jannigirl :  🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Right, because eliminating the infectious disease team, cutting the CDC budget, and ignoring this problem in the hope that it would go away is such great leadership. That’s why we have the most cases in the world and our deaths are increasing by thousands every day. Gives a new meaning to America First!

jannigirl :  Here is a question for you: have you seen him snapping at reporters during his press conferences? I have seen him do that at least twice. That, to me, shows a massive amount of insecurity on his part. And also further indication that he has no idea what he is doing. What are your perspectives on that? I am asking because when I see that, the number one thought in my mind is ‘how can people support this man?’. And I will happily provide links if you haven’t yet seen them.

jannigirl :  You’re proud of the constant lies, the gaslighting, and refusal to take any responsibility for anything ever (among other things)? How?

All political stances aside – just as a person, Trump is disgusting and has always been disgusting.

I get it – all politicians lie and play the game. Not gonna argue that. But he lies about the weirdest and stupidest shit. Stuff that is EASILY proven to be a lie, and doesn’t even make sense to lie about in the first place. Constantly.

jannigirl :  I also think he will win, but I’m not happy about it. I’d prefer a president who actually cared about the people of this country and took their job seriously. Republican or Democrat wouldn’t matter – if a president really cared about the country, they’d do what they thought was best, and that would be good enough for me. Trump isn’t one of those people, unfortunately.

There is a small local burger place that we really enjoy and they said the landlord wasn’t giving him a break either, he had to let go of his small staff and is manning it alone now. He isn’t making many sales and it’s sad thinking the business will go under as it’s his family’s onot source of income

abeecee :  I understand what you’re saying, but by voting for someone like that you’re sending a very clear message about where your moral compass points. And I can tell you, it’s due south. People are allowed to have opinions about that.

Jannigirl’s comment says it all. Unfortunately she is far from alone in her feelings. I know a lot of trump supporters and not one of them is critical of Trump’s handling of this. While I think it’s hypocritical AF that they hold the president of the USA to a lower moral standard than they would their own school aged children, it is what it is … this is our reality. 

People who are so sure Trump will be ruined over this are out of touch with reality. If Biden or Sanders is the nominee I am predicting Trump wins. Of course anything can happen from now and then but that’s my prediction. I think Andrew Cuomo is the only person who could defeat Trump at this point but it would take a miracle to get him on the ballot.
