Even it if means their loved ones will get arrested and sent to concentration camps. So long as they don't have to take polling calls or have people knock on their door again, it'll be worth it to them.

So long as all the people they don't approve of for whatever reason (LGBTQ+, "wrong" skin color, ethnicity, religion, politics, etc.) are all sent to the concentration camps, it'll be worth it to them.
I think that's their real priority. That and banning all the books, movies, etc, that they don't approve of,
It may start up the way you describe and they'll be okay with that too. Then when those people are gone and the next level of unacceptable people are arrested and sent away, that'll be okay with them too...just so long as it's not them.
What surprises me the most is that many minorities are supporting fascist policies that would pinpoint them specifically. They're not part of the pure white blood, yet they love the feeling of belonging and comradery they get from the people around them pushing such ideas. What the hell are they thinking? I suppose they're not history buffs.
He would reinstitute the draft to fill HIS military to carry out his Fascist agenda and to protect him. MAGA like it was in the 60s. Draft to die for dear leader and no right to vote.
To be so. What they did, are doing, after last loss, 2024 will be much worse. Look what Ohio is doing with abortion rights and weed.
Lets promote the economy, jobs, the environment, climate etc.
for a substantial numbers of voters.
We can promote all of the good reasons to support Dems.
The 79 year old is cray-cray stupid and evil.
GOTV and punt Trump once and for good
Starting a conversation with "how could you be so stupid" is guaranteed to result in nobody listening to anything else.
They're fucking embarrassing.
If one wants to throw away their vote when our democracy is at stake, might as well write in their own fucking name.
If you're not voting for Biden in 2024, you are supporting Trump -- PERIOD.
and hate he has I hope it backfires on him. He's just an evil Pos. Go away will ya???? He has caused so much chaos, division and hate. We want to go forward not back.
CAUSE it, or is he just a typical con man who sees the opportunity to run his next con and just plays on what's already there? It's sure worked well for him so far. And all HIS anger and hate? I hate to break it to you, but Trump is no more or less angry and hateful than Dick Cheney was/is. Only difference between the 2, and these words are going to taste bitter as hell, Dick Cheney had more of public moral compass. When you lose the moral high ground to Dick Cheney, well that's pretty shocking. And W, well he wasn't the brightest and best either with his damn near illiterate look in the public spotlight. Is our children learning?
And Trumps bumbling and looking like a total tool in public, we'll, that didn't hurt him either. He got 62,985,106 voters to vote FOR him in 2016 then 74,223,369 in 2020, He GAINED 11,238,263 voters AFTER his 4 dismal years in the WH. And he is STILL a contender for 2024, no matter what he does. Do you actually believe this ALL suddenly materialized in 2015-2016 because of one man? It's been in our faces for decades. Problem is, "we" either ignored it, were too self absorb to see it or are just plain dumb. It's popular to blame ALL the ills in this country on Trump and the republicans ( and God knows they ARE the party of the stone age, this I don't deny, not even a little) but the fact of the matter is, Republicans have been broadcasting their "wish list" for decades, they haven't tried to hide it in the least, they have played the long game while the public focused on the Kardashians, American Idol and how many "likes" they had on social media while the R's just kept playing. In the U.S. the PEOPLE control who the government is. The PEOPLE have the power to change it at any time. And sadly, the PEOPLE gave us what we have now. By either direct action, or inaction. And "gerrymandering"! Election interference, those are ALL things that have been going on for a very, very long time! Still doesn't change the fact, the people get what the people allow. No amount of excuses will change that. But we have now just about reached the point of no return. The clock is running out and we have allowed the other team to run up the score, we are dangerously close to finding there is simply not enough time left to correct course.
now and the next election something works out in our favour. You cannot predict the future. Your post has valid observations.
half of America never votes at all. our last local election had a 30% turnout. folks are apathetic (until something personally affects them). we need more on the ballot than a battle between geriatrics. states with initiatives should have something which brings out the fence-sitters. Ohio and Virginia proved it with the abortion issue. Those of us non this site know trump is a criminal and should rot in prison, but we are educated and aware.

The way I see it through numbers, America's consent" is based on what the majority of Americans do.
The mentally incompetent, the imprisoned and the ex-convicts who are ineligible to vote.
Not sure what the numbers are there, but the total is a long way from zero.
If you found credible sources with accurate numbers, I don't think that level of precision would change the general accuracy laid out here, but what do I know.
And yes, I understand that a couple weeks after election he'll be 82.
Something to indeed consider and please SHARE.
For if PO1135809 gets elected, it's goodbye to the American experiment that lasted for 248 years.
