Do you think political discourse will shift back to Obama years civility? Will "Q" conspiracy lose steam? Will Chris Matthews feel safe walking through Central Park? Will "cancel culture" ease off as twitter users redirect focus towards pressuring Biden to come good on election promises, or do you think think it'll escalate? Will SNL/ Colbert be funny?

The civility of the Obama years when the people who are now Q folks would post endlessly about the foreign born socialist Muslim president who was waging a war on white people and Christians and would flip their shit when he wore a tan suit?

i'm pretty much insulated from most if not all of the problems created by the current 'president' so not much different for me. I do think there will be a positive swing shift in some areas of policy; but biden is a old grandpa centrist so nothing of significant material impact which is what I would prefer to see. This whole campaign just feels like a DNC apology tour to be honest, which I guess is 'good enough' for now but when you're up against a political death cult it's hard for this tack to inspire much in the way of consideration on my end.

WRT culture of civility itself.. no, facebook/twitter/etc have pretty much annihilated that for a good generation+. when you have actual news networks posting tweets from randos to spark discourse you've just given up the wheel. my grandma posts pizzagate adjacent links on facebook. i have to talk to my 9 year old about not believing stuff you read online even though it may sound legitimate and look professionally produced. there is so much money to be made in misinformation now, and nobody seems to care unless the body count gets too high in a fiscal quarter.

They're already setting up Tea Party 2: Electric Bugaloo by refusing to spend any more relief money on pandemic aid and crying about the deficit, so expect those to be VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES all of a sudden going forward

This country is doomed, I'm trying to get out of it. We could fix things by splitting into two countries: America and Kekistan. Just shove all the racists and q believing shitheads into Kekistan and build a wall around them.

Well, let's be honest. We'll be accepting a more even keel in exchange for higher taxes, a freefalling economy, and porous borders.

The problems we have won't go away with Old Joe at the helm. We might be looking at another Nixon/Ford/Carter era-transition.

Realistically he will find it more difficult to find allies abroad than Obama did after the Bush administration.
Biden already hit European headlines for saying Poland and Hungary were totalitarian states in his town hall.
Trump forged strong ties with Saudi Arabia, Israel, Japan and Eastern Europe which are all based on things he said and promised.
Biden could be pushed by the pro-Palestinian wing of his party to reverse some of Trump's most controversial policies such as moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

The world hasn't forgotten about what happened with the Arab Spring, ISIS, Iraq, Ukraine and Syria. Even if that feels like ancient history to the US.
China is already moving in on Africa, the IMF says Africa needs $1.2 trillion to recover from COVID-19 and debt relief, debt which is mostly held by China.
After the German election of 2021 Macron will probably have an ally to continue his path of cooperation with Russia.
As both Russia and the EU will realize it's the only way to keep China and Turkey in check and the Middle East at peace.

As for domestic policy. When Trump is out many people will 'feel' and be told on TV that issues like migration, racism etc. are solved.
CNN will be absolutely masturbatory with speeches about how America's darkest age has ended and Biden is the Gandalf that will unite the people.
On Fox News Trump will take the place of Reagan but he's alive and they can call him to get his take on things.
Without the responsibility of governing Trump can once again deliver his hot takes and commentary on the failing Biden administration on Tucker, Hannity and Dobbs.

The focus of reporting will move back to 'ze economy' and the recession for which they will mostly blame Trump.
Biden like Bill Clinton in the 90's will see his 'massive FDR spending programs' stonewalled by Democrats and Republicans alike and be in the same position as most centrist European governments.
He will have no choice but to cut social security and other expenditures to fight climate change, bail out vital industries and solve the pandemic.

Presidents aren’t god-kings. They’re just bureaucrats that makes small changes on the edges and you may or may not feel some impact down the road.

Congress and your state government has a more direct impact on your life, but you don’t have control over who runs it. So, people spend all the time and energy focusing on this one office where they throw all their hate/hope at to make them believe that their vote actually has some meaning.

I'll go to South Carolina instead:


If people don't vote in Lindsey Graham, he is no longer the head of committes


I'll go to Kentucky instead:

If people stop voting in Mitch McConnell, he is no longer in power and can't gleefully keep killing everything that makes it to his desk




Who you vote for at your state government level is more important to you directly than who you vote for president. It's not like the president is determining the laws and taxes in your neighborhood. Your local and state reps and senators are way more important to your daily life than the president and the voters are the ones that put them there, which means ....voters are in control of who gets those positions to impact your lives on the street level. And those people go on to influence on the national level. Ergo, people voting in pieces of shit locally changes the power dynamics nationally.

Probably will originate from a Neogaf cell. Took a look today and oh boy those cats are UNHINGED.

Lets play unabomber or neogaf!

Quote
That people are cheering the death of our country is depressing.

Biden will win, there is no doubt about that in my mind. I am honestly losing all hope in the future. I just can't fathom why seemingly rational individuals are siding with Marxist SJWs. How can you guys stand to share a platform with people that spew nothing but hate for the country and its people? That thinks an individuals worth only comes from how oppressed they are?

If the democrats disowned the SJWs and dropped identity politics I would be a democrat. As I personally fit politically with them on other things, but I am scared shitless at where that party is headed and so I vote republican. Not that my vote matters, or that anything matters. We are completely fucked, and after a mush for brains Biden lets his regressive handlers neuter the first amendment and get rid of the second the US is done for.

Quote
The biggest scandal in the history of American politics...and it's like the entire media establishment is acting like it doesn't exist. What is going on? It's both shocking and terrifying. How can anyone be expected to have any trust in the media, or journalism, ever again?

This is an innovative new theory though

Quote
They need something in place by the election because the DNC is gearing up to supress Trump saying anything about the election except for Biden won. Nov 3rd and on they wont allow any election related articles that dont declare Biden the winner. So need to nip that in the bud asap.

Trump will actually win the election, but THE MEDIA will report Biden won and thats that.

Marxist SJW who hates America and Americans...Also lame ass Mr. Rogers who wants everyone to be friends



Doddering old coot with severe dementia who can't even speak complete sentences...Also the most dangerous man in American history, with tons of nefarious plots and plans to destroy the country


The most extreme left wing radical candidate of all time....also actually a centrist who lost the Radical Left 8 different times in a debate

there's worry that people will get complacent but the flipside is that maybe some of the people who felt obliged to get into the politics fandom under Trump, but are terrible at it, will put their energy into something useful instead.

maybe.

No one will admit that Biden solely won because of a pandemic, Trump will be retconned into nothing but Russian interference. Then people will remain content in an exploitative system and keep thinking that being fakely polite to each other will solve the world's problems.
