1) That's more of a worry than a concern. You have a pro-Russian posting history, Putin has numerous ways he's screwing us, and this looks like it might be one.
a. No, it's a concern because black people aren't a robotic voting bloc.
b. More demonization and begging the question that lacks proof. In fact, Putin has come out against the attacks aimed at the Biden family's financal shenanigans. Which by the way I think are ''legal'' but highly unethical and immoral.
c. To obsessive Russophobes, it's a handy excuse for failure politically.
2) I know that's what he said, but he was a follower, not a leader. Look at his life, how many times before that did he run for any elective office?
I ran in circles of people like Buchanan, once upon a time. Buchanan was in the race to win because there were so many GOP conservatives put off by the actually-liberal Bush that he believed he had a chance in an honest nomination process. Well, I don't think it was very honest, I'll just say that.
3) Third party types are all goofballs, the only question is who is giving them money and why.
Bullshit. Most people that are ''Third party types'' you dismiss, they're political idealists who want to break the Two-Party monopoly on political power, and set up a system that better represents the actual political beliefs of the American people.
Typical establishment liberal capitalist
But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.
