Sidenote, what is right wing social media talking about right now? Are they going ape shit?


Just the usual conspiracy shit. Nothing to concern yourself on. Although the nutty right are a significant minority. They are a headache, but not something Biden should worry about. The issue America has is those who feel left behind. The vast majority who voted Trump. I assure you they aren't going anywhere if America doesn't address their concerns. They will vote for the next Republican that promises to bring jobs back home on a race card because they genuinely believe Mexicans have stolen their jobs. They haven't realised that neocons are actually outsourcing them for profits.

The UK have managed it. Just put a cap on spending and publish donors. Job done.

No. Nobody can run a political campaign without massive chunk of money.

There are absolutely beneficiaries of Brexit. They seduced Brexit camp with money. They are now happy to see EU companies are barred from the UK markets.

But el Instabuller let us pray that only minorities die of Coronavirus....because being rich and white guarantees life...Dr. Fauci needs to back the superiority.

because disenfranchised white people are gonna attack the capitol because they can't take the reality of having to deal with the realities of being steamrolled by greedy lying politicians.

You are chatting shit again and don't know what you are talking about clearly. The UK have caps and published donors and as such stop the issues you have in America. Without a cap you have mega donors and a race for big cash and as such you become a figurehead for Big Business and the lobbyists because of it. The Leave campaign broke spending rules, but it wasn't like they did it intentionally or that it was a major breach. Besides, Brexit was won by bad timing during a refugee crisis. Should we have a vote today, we would vote remain. Cash and donors isn't a major issue in the UK I can assure you.

What the fuck is up with these emotional twats celebrating? Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see the Orange Monkey go, but fuck, let's chill out a little with the emotional out bursts. Like Biden is the second coming or something. Grow a pair.

I have to give you credit! You are not tribal. ;)

Big cash and mega donors are not problem. Statism is problem. Public funds for political parties is worse. You got that in the UK. Taxpayers money is being used without notifications to taxpayers.

Koch billionaires spend billions of US dollars to keep the country in founding principles of libertarianism and conservatism. They advocated less government and more free markets. I am siding with big money. They know better.

I refuse to believe that you are so ignorant to think this. Big donors means big favors. How can you look after your voters when you have to look after your backers? It is why gun laws will never be reformed and why America is climate blind. Because oil an the NSA are big political players. Unless a president makes a stand to address blue collar votes, we will be talking about polarisation for years to come in America.

Tribalism is better. A tribal person is disciplined whereas a centrist is undisciplined and compromised. Centrism makes politics unmeaningful. You have same things whoever wins.

Centrism is Keynesianism in the US today. Centrism is corruption in Africa. It was communism in Soviet Russia.

Word now is that there is no sun, the sun is a conspiracy theory brainwashed into us by the liberal media and the Marxist professors in their ivory towers.

Love Biden, he can BS as well as Reagan. However, no one tells a joke better than Reagan. He is also Catholic, so I should like him for that.

Money in life is meaningless. That is why drug dealers don't care about profits. Or politicians who need to get rich selling their privileged information and connections either. Money has no hold over their saint like lives.

A bunch of corporations are putting out their "good luck" statements and what not.

Funny how these corporations always refer to the government as a (equal) "partner". :eh:

CORPORATISM IS ALIVE AND STRONG!

Reagan was better because he had professional experience with acting. He was also luckier with his personal life, so it was easier for him to be positive and funny.

Really? That didn't seem to last long. Seems to be +260 currently, hitting records highs.
Let's be clear, I didn't give much crap about the stock market under trump, I certainly don't give much crap about it now that biden is in office. It was a fake measure of success (and therefore also failure) given that it does not necessarily track with our economy. Cannot possible be making the argument that the economy is 50% healthier today than it was last march. Why is this so hard to get across?

Indeed, people that use the stock market as some sort of measure of success for the federal government is a fucking moron... basically.

How psychophans baby ass-kissing network is covering the news. Notice that the mention to Joe biden's inauguration is reserved for a tiny small banner in the bottom. Today's day is about Trump :lol:

However, this is still good news. Does not seem FOX followed with that nonsense and hope the other networks let Trump fade into irrelevance.
