The democrats are to blame for Trump being president. The last election they had a despicable candidate. People voted for anyone EXCEPT Hillary. This coming election they have nominated an old corrupt senile guy who has soo much baggage that even Trump looks good. Why was Joe nominated? That was because even the democrats shy away from the far left socialist candidates. The silent majority of voters are smart enough to see that socialism doesn't work and has never worked. All those massive giveaway programs are paid for by working people. All that free stuff is NOT free.
A lot of people thought Trump was the lesser of two evils. They know better now.
Similar to the great Whistler Vs Tamada dog fight
some of us thought you were the lesser of two Walters
How did that turn out?
Also please post a link to where conscripts from Australia could choose not to go to Vietnam will be very enlightening for those who were forcibly sent and I know several.

Yes SOCIALISM ,,, the USA propaganda machine at work... Sociaslist countries such as .... Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, UK, Germany, Canada, NZ etc.... do 100 times better than the USA for the WORKING PEOPLE. In the last round of giveaway the WORKING PEOPLE got peanuts compared to the Big Business, and that s CORPORATE welfare, few % of the USA populaton grab the jackpot all the time. YES that is SOCIALISM Corporate Socialisim. Yes Soialism works for the Elite in the USA.
Have a safe day in your bibble.

Maybe you should read it yourself.
The Defence Act was amended May 1964 to provide that national servicemen could be obliged to serve overseas,
In 1965, the Defence Act was again amended to require the CMF to serve overseas which was not included in the 1964 amendments.[26] In March 1966, the government announced that national servicemen would be sent to South Vietnam to fight in units of the Australian Regular Army and for secondment to American forces.

Yes some of us would have liked you to be correct.
But thank you we can all make errors if only we could all admit it.

American lawmakers have proposed several stimulus bills to ease the blow of trade tensions on the semiconductor sector and strengthen supply chain independence. The latest proposal is a bipartisan bill announced on Wednesday -- named the CHIPS Act -- that will allocate $10 billion in federal funding domestic chipmaking and a further $12 billion for research and development.

EXCEPT 3 million more of them voted FOR Hillary, as despicable as she may have been :D

How bad does that make Trump?
As you should know, the president is not elected with the popular vote. The electoral college was created by far more intelligent people than the politicians of today.

It is a scary thought that Los Angeles, Chicago and New York city would elect our president. All one has to do is to take a look at the democrat controlled cities to see the problems.

What a Hypocrite Agent Orange is stating that The Police who use thuggery and Brutality and Racism are Bad Apples, bit late with that one Agent. You will receive a second wave of Pandemic because of idiots taking to the streets and blocking city centers like Seattle and demanding the lock downs lifted cases are already on the up.

what is your belief vlad? all u.s.a. police , state,
county, township are endemically racist and it's
all a massive smokescreen and coverup implying
otherwise? these incidents typically happen in
the worst, highest-crime ghetto areas but we should extrapolate the data to the other 99% of
territory these guys cover? i mean i'm not seeing
any reasoning just name- calling empty argument

I disagree on the first sentence. I thought the economies in and around the big American cities were the American economic powerhouse. They are the American success story and prop up the rest of the country.

That is more scary than any other thought so far.

You overlook the farmers and ranchers who feed the country. Without the electoral college, their few votes from the sparsely populated states would mean nothing.

Australia, or I should say part of it "Queensland", had a form of what was referred to as "Gerrymander" or in some circles Bjelkemander during the 1970's and 1980's A system whereby electorates were allocated to zones, such as rural or metropolitan and electoral boundaries drawn so that rural electorates had about half as many voters as metropolitan ones.

Was it fair or not, well many people have different views on it. The Framers & Rural people thought it was fair and I suspect many of the people living in major cities thought that it was unfair. \:D/

Personally I think it is fair, as I disagree with the notion of “One Man One Vote” philosophy, when it comes to Cities vs Rural (and I was raised in a city). I believe those in rural areas should have a more balanced say, in how the Country is managed and on what the tax revenue is spent, compared to what they currently get with those living in the cities.

Otherwise the rural people will be starved out of existence. Who then will feed the Country or will the city people simply revert to more importing of food products, from the tax revenue that they spend on themselves. =; =;

i didn't want to see that 75 yr old guy get hurt but
c'mon. stomps up to riot police, poking at them or
touching their gear, then gets touched and throws
himself backwards

and it turns out he's a professional protestor with
twitter/youtube following. now his attorney claiming brain damage. here comes a lawsuit
it's beyond ludicrous already
