Biden for President? Pt 3

Trump did NOT win 2016 on a "I will save the rural areas" message. He won it on a "I will punish the people who didn't get screwed over because how dare they" message. Trump was never the rural area's savior, he was a convenient bag of burning dog poop to put on everyone else's porch.

As to how much it's working this time... time will tell. Hopefully not as well.
He didn't "win" on his message either. He didn't move the dial much from McCain's and Mitten's numbers, showing that the absolute ceiling for the republicans is 60,000,000 and shrinking. He "won" because the republicans, seeing that Hilary Clinton was vulnerable organised the biggest voter disenfranchisement system in the history of the state, bigger than pre-CRA Jim Crow, almost as big as slavery.

ROFLMAO. Seriously Chris? Why would or should we care about this? Remember this? RONALD (6) WILSON (6) REAGAN (6) or 666.

You can play with numbers all you want. But this is only silly superstitious nonsense.

Oh, you wanna play the 666 card? You should compare notes with the author of this page and see what you come up with. . .

An excerpt:

Quote:
(1) The Trumps purchased the most expensive building ever bought in the US, at 666 Fifth Avenue, a street symbolic of hubris, greed and money (Mammon).

(2) The Trumps paid $1.8 billion for the 666 tower. And 18 = 3*6 = 666. The 666 tower was bought by Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner. Kush was the patriarch of Babylon, the son of the cursed Ham, and the father of Nimrod who created of the Tower of Babel.

(3) According to multiple reports, the famous Trump Tower is 203 meters tall. And 203 meters = 666 feet. The Trump penthouse is on the 66th floor.

(4) The Trumps are also in the process of building a $666 million tower at One Journal Square. According to multiple reports the height will be 666 feet.

(5) In Trump's first fiscal year which started in 2016 (2016 = 666+666+666+6+6+6) the budget deficit exploded to 666 billion dollars (per Fox Business). Trump tweeted his congratulations for the budget passage on October 27, 2017. The bavister.org Julian Date calculator confirms that a Julian date of 6666 translates to the date of Trump's tweet.
Confirmed: Trump is the Antichrist . . . or at least one of them.

My initial point was that when asking are you better off than blahblahblah, for many, there are metrics beyond the pocketbook. This is reflected by Biden's lead in the polls, I think, though it may not matter electorally. I understand that many vote their pocketbook; I've been involved in politics since I was first eligible to vote in 1976, so this is far from my first rodeo. In my first post on this subject, I should have typed that the country is worse off rather than "we're" worse off, if only for clarity. I say this because I can think of no metric in which 9,549,011 people contracting COVID-19, and 236,893 perishing from it can in any way be honestly, objectively termed "better off." But I also realize people do that, and will vote their feelings.

I never bothered posting in politics very much before Trump was elected, mostly because you don't change many minds very often, and all it ever seems to accomplish is to make one a bit flustered. But I dislike Trump intensely, and have to vent every now and again. I'm hoping that after this election I won't have to bother anymore, but that hope is fading. Two weeks ago I was confident he was out, but now I'm thinking he's getting the electoral college.

Also, there is an important thing that happens pretty much all the time and certainly happened last time:

Republicans vote Republican
Democrats vote Democrat

You can stick a Democrat or Republican badge on a steaming pile of feces, and it won't change the voting habits of either.

In fact the Republicans are doing that right now (LOL! had to say it), and seriously, the Democrats would do exactly the same.

I dunno. I'm an independent as is my wife, and we've voted against Trump both times, but the interesting thing is that my sons-in-law are Republicans and both have voted for Biden. Or so they swear.

I've voted Republican in most elections up until 2016. Then I voted third-party. I'm not doing that this year. I already voted Biden.

No you are wrong, the math is correct 2020 ÷ 666 = 3.0330303303033030330

It is "30330" to infinity after the first "3.0330" not just 3."033" repeating.

This brought to you and chosen by a campaign that is highly symbolic in everything it does. EX:The recent Warm Springs GA Biden rally to reassure "healing" etc. Perhaps just an odd thing to happen by accident that no expert in the Biden camp happened to notice....A campaign that evidently does not focus on numbers.

"30330" is definitely brought to you by the Biden Presidential campaign.

Superstition and or dog whistle.

Imagine the comments if the Trump campaign had chosen "111111" for a campaign text number.

I'm sure you may be used to denying many things , and possibly getting away with it. However just FYI, the universal application of math is not something you can fudge on.

Dog whistle? Now is the time for the laughing dog.



Get serious. You think there are hidden satan worshippers waiting for signals from the committed Catholic?

Thanks! Even Google agrees. Makes me wonder how acbytesla and ChrisBFRPKY are getting a different number.

Eta: although it was Zig who originally pointed out the math error, so he should be credited.

Fair enough. There is wiggle room, for sure, and there must be otherwise the presidency would not shift from one party to the other. That said, it probably still is the biggest determining factor in how people vote.

I dunno. I'm an independent as is my wife, and we've voted against Trump both times, but the interesting thing is that my sons-in-law are Republicans and both have voted for Biden. Or so they swear.
They voted for Biden? Or against Trump?

It says right in the post you quoted "for Biden." I can tell you that here in Georgia there isn't a choice of "against Trump." You have for Biden, for Trump, or write-in.

Is it different where you vote in....checks... Hong Kong?

Superstition and or dog whistle.

Imagine the comments if the Trump campaign had chosen "111111" for a campaign text number.

For when you thought "I have more money in my pocket" was going to be the ******* stupidest argument you read in this thread ...

A dog whistle for the large group of undecided Satanists?
That makes sense.

Would Biden disavow the recent beheadings in France??

You mean like this?

“A Biden-Harris administration will work with our allies and partners to prevent extremist violence in all forms.”

No, I'm sure he's for them.

What a stupid question.

Quote:
Democratic White House candidate Joe Biden on Thursday vowed to crack down on “extremist violence” if elected, decrying the “horrific” knife attack at a French church that left three dead.

“Jill and I are keeping the French people in our prayers following the horrific terror attack in Nice -- which targeted innocents in a house of worship,” he said on Twitter.

“A Biden-Harris administration will work with our allies and partners to prevent extremist violence in all forms.”

I will be very disappointed in Biden if he makes a victory speech and inauguration speech that both lack the phrase "You're fired".

That would be funny.

I suspect he'll resist the temptation and act more 'Presidential'. But I could be wrong.
