Question from a foreigner. Is the Biden presidency really a sure thing? Arizona kinda looks like it will flip to trump yet. They have been indicating that the vote count has been stuck at 98 percent for three days and yet Biden’s lead is continually dropping. Down to 14000 ish votes. Apparently they are 3 or 4 days left of counting yet. Not sure how it works but I suspect within a few more days Biden’s lead will be gone. Does this change things?
Sorry. Not up on American elections. We have some Arizona connections so we kinda keep tabs a bit.
Thanks in advance.
>>There's plenty of justification for calling Biden a senile old man. It's indisputably true. Nobody without cognitive decline would campaign with his wife at his side prompting him with basic facts that she knows he'd muddle otherwise. It'd be undignified. The only reason the Democrats got away with it is that their allies in the media whipped their supporters up into four straight years of fake rage. <<
This is probably the wrong forum for posts on the American presidency, but I suggest you do some reading on #45, his business dealings and bankruptcies, his golf cheating, the opinions of most of his erstwhile senior cabinet and colleagues etc etc.
Despite being somewhat off topic, this is an interesting discussion. I find opinions here that I never expected to see in an EV forum.
The environmentalist movement used to be the exclusive domain of people driven by empathy and social responsibility. With the advent of EVs that are so much faster and more powerful than anything ICE technology can produce at a mass market level, this group has started to mingle with an increasing number of people from different walks of life who are in the pursuit of the traditional "testosterone" metrics like acceleration, speed, and luxury. Some of those new kinds of EV owners will find ethical and moral benefit in the fact that their vehicles have a smaller environmental footprint, but that wasn't a deciding factor for them to make the switch, and some of the more extreme new EV owners don't care about either far side of the spectrum at all. The range of opinion on politics, technology, and science (e.g. climate change) is now running the full range in these forums. I find that is surprising.
I now have come to realise - thanks to this diversity of expressed opinion in what otherwise would be a forum of singular pursuit - that the extreme polarisation of societies around the globe (but most visibly in the US and UK as illustrated by the Trump and Brexit phenomena) is in fact not so much due to a divide of wealth and social standing as I have hitherto assumed (and as postulated in books like "White Trash" and "Hillbilly Elegy"), but much more so due to an increasingly apparent divide of intellect.....
Hatred? Those are facts. The media does not decide who the president is, the electoral college does and they have still not voted. It would appear to a non-partisan observer that something is off with Biden's many gaffes, especially given this behavior is a known and likely side effect from his health problems and corrective surgery 15 years ago.This is the kind of hatred that really needs to cease
Agreed but not according CNN & company. You would never know. Funny how they all want harmony and to just get along.Hatred? Those are facts.

It's more about not enjoying being spoken down to by effete people who think they're better than you, while contributing nothing to the uplift of the ordinary person. No matter what the facts are at any given moment, if we hear them from people who hate us, as many people here hate us unconditionally, your interpretation of them remains irrelevant.
Fact checks are meaningless in a culture war.
