  • You would have to be a pretty big idiot to be undecided at this point. You could find out what each candidate wants in 30 seconds. If you cant interpret how you feel about that then you are hopelessly ignorant

  • What if you are not certain who to vote for? What if you see points to both sides? Some may be inclined to pick just 1 issue and vote for the candidate that agrees with them on that 1 topic. That is the quick and easy way, but doesn't let you stand up for what you really believe. Instead look at all the issue. Don't just go with the side that agrees with you on the most issues. Also look at each issue and decide how important it is to you. Imagine these issues as circles. The size of the circle indicates how important it is to you. Don't follow the side on the right just because you agree with more of their points. Look at how important the issues are on the left as well. Also remember that there will be some things that both sides agree on.

  • Trump is so idiotic - seems the ACP (Anti-Commonsense Party) wrecks much bigger havoc to America than the CCP... If Trump loses but only with a small margin, that still says a lot about how many anti-common sense losers and retards America has who voted for Trump...

  • Finally someone smart that can say the truth. Election is 70-80% about the parties. Either you like what democrats stand for or you like what Republicans stand for. Usually only 20-30% people that care about the personality of the person seating in the chair. In a few situations that 20-30 can increase and mostly happen with democrats voters. They sometimes care about the personality of the president.

  • Those people make me irate with their key issues and not feeling enough love from 1 party. Do they read the news? Do they see what's going on? The choice could not be easier, 4 more years of despotism and chaos or a return to sanity and recovery. Blacks feels taken for granted by the Democratic party but what have the Republicans EVER done for you? When Trump asks, "What have you got to lose?" he wants to know what he can take from you. Idiot. And the one saying he's pro-life, you don't like abortion then don't have one, stop trying to force the rest of the country to live by your beliefs. You wouldn't want to live under sharia law.

Who said they don’t want their kids growing up in a racial jungle? Who called Obama “ The first main stream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice looking guy? Who plagiarizes speeches and is sexually inappropriate in the presence of minors? Who harmed the black community with a 1994 crime bill?

  • Unfortunately, Like yourself. Ideas and ideologies from the Left and Democrats are literally unsustainable for our society it will never ever work to keep our country the way it has been and what we have stood for throughout history. Our Declaration of Independence the Constitution what we have fought for in the past to be able to have the rights and freedoms that we have today in the society for everyone no matter left or right to express their own ideas and ideologies no matter right or wrong and who determines/declares those ideologies right or wrong. They are still open for discussion. But to keep the freedoms of our nation and our ability to continue to be the best Nation that we have been up to this point and enjoy the freedoms we all cherish. We need to keep those types of ideologies that will negatively affect our nation from moving forward and continuing to be the greatest country that there has ever been. Bottom line yes. We have our freedoms. We have our constitution. We have our Declaration of independence. Those are the things that our country was founded upon. And in short. If this is a country that you no longer want to be a part of with those instruments in place in order for the United States of America to continue to be the greatest country in this world. Then yes, you do have the ability to say no, this is not something I want to be a part of. You have the right to say these are not the beliefs I have. And if this is not something that you can live with. Then that is also your right as an American to freely leave this country. You have the right to go to another country which will welcome you and that are founded on your types of beliefs and ideologies that will welcome your beliefs and ideologies and they will welcome you with open arms. You will feel at home if these are truly the beliefs and ideologies that you personally feel would better represent the way you would like the society that you live in to function. So please, enact you're right to be free and to go where you want to go where to a country that will welcome you and your ideologies. Just please. Do not continue to live in a society that was founded on our constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration Of Independence which gives all of us the right to fight against tyranny against those that opposed our beliefs in which the United States were founded upon. (KEY WORDS BEING, IN WHICH WE WERE FOUNDED UPON) Obviously, if you DO NOT have the beliefs then it also gives you the right as stated to leave this country. Being an American citizen means exactly that. There is a reason why you are an American citizen. Citizenship means in believing in what your country stands for and you will uphold those beliefs that you had sworn to uphold as a citizen. When people are citizens of this great country you take on an oath. Which means exactly that. Just as all politicians. You as citizens take on an oath to defend our country's Constitution and Bill of Rights and to adhere to them. And yes, you are allowed by all rights to disagree. But you cannot be so far to the left in which your beliefs and ideologies change or go against our constitution to become something America does not stand for which is Socialism, Communism or Marxism just to fulfill your own ideologies, beliefs or agenda. Again, there are countries that will welcome you with open arms. We encourage you to be as happy and free as you like in whatever type of society you choose. Obviously, you are here now enjoying the freedoms that our country has afforded to you. Remember. You came to the United States of America for a reason. Looks like you have done pretty well for yourself since coming here. Why? Because we allowed you to enjoy the freedoms you have had up to this point to get you to where you are now. You have it better than the majority of Americans and your viewers currently do. So, stop bashing our current leaders and administration as they too have allowed you to flourish in the greatest economy in the history of America for over the past 3 years. Never once have you ever pointed that out to your viewers or anyone to that matter. But then. Why would you? You are simply part of the problem and its time for you to leave because America is such a horrible place to live according to your ideologies and belief system.

  • 1. A president who believes in Putin over his own intelligence agency. "They think its Russia. I have president Putin, he just said that it's not Russia. I will say this I don't see any reason why it would be. I will tell you that president Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today..." 2. A president who disrespects scientists, military leaders and free press (calling them "enemy of the people"). 3. A president who openly supports hatred, division, and racism - remember Charlottesville and "Proud boys stand back and stand by". 4. A president who constantly lies and supports conspiracy theories - QAnon. 5. A president who purposely allowed the corona virus (which killed 200K plus US Citizens) to spread calling it a hoax. 6. A president who allows foreign countries to interfere in US elections ("Russia if you are listening...") 7. A president who is using voter suppression tactics and refusing to accept the results of an election - a threat to democracy. A dictator in making. WE NEED A REAL PRESIDENT WHO CAN UNITE THIS COUNTRY! Those who support Trump at this point after 4 years mainly fall into one of the categories: 1. Hatred - Blinded by hatred these folks enjoy when Trump mocks others. Without decency there will be more division and chaos. A president is the president of entire US, a world leader, and should act with decency and dignity. 2. Fill my stomach: Just put food on my table and then you can grab me by anything. For them freedom, moral values, democracy, etc. does not matter as long as you feed them. 3. Plain Stupid: ???

  • 🇺🇸 HEEEE’S BACK! OMG! Eight of Keith Olbermann’s “List of Trump’s 50 Worst Atrocities” 1. Trump, the Virus’ handling of the Pandemic with 228,860 deaths at his feet. 2. Trump speaks, others kill on his behalf (ex: “Liberate Michigan”, Stand down, stand by/Threats to Gov. Whitmer’s life). 3. Putting kids in cages, and separating them from their parents 4. His attorney general lying and burying the Mueller report, which clearly stated that “if no crime had been committed, we would have said so”.) 5. Appointing 3 Supreme Court Justices he had no right to select. 6. Refusing to say that he would accept the outcome of the 2020 Election. 7. Accusing Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Joe Biden & Democratic congressmen who did not applaud him at his State of the Union Address of treason. 8. Sabotaging the U.S. Post Office, & stoking lack of confidence that U.S. votes will be counted, & then making up a law that every vote must be counted by Election Day-during a pandemic. Well, what do you expect when you put an ignoramus in office? Catch Keith’s full searing critique at Eight more atrocities tomorrow. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Politics is like public transportation...we take the bus or train that gets us closest to our destinations; we should vote for the person that gets us closest to our set of values/needs. To not vote is to abdicate your values/needs to some other voter. You are you still let someone else pick your food at a restaurant?...Why are you doing that same action when it comes to voting?
