    To be fair, there was a *whole lot* of voter suppression this time around - even more than the usual US standard, I mean.

    recreational marijuana propositions in 5 states winning + Florida going Trump while still passing the 15 USD/hr proposition.

    Ehh, it's more that their ticket sucked and they won because the monumental turnout wiped out the turnout advantage the Trump campaign had. Y'know, a deeper well to pull votes from.

    So it was pointless all around, maxing the turnout didn't work because the equivalent in a city runs far deeper. I'm just glad Florida and this whole ordeal proved that A. Polls are officially worth jack-all... and B. Biden was still an unpalatable ticket and even then he also had the advantage of every president that has dethroned an incumbent: a recession.

    Also, C. That you could Vote Trump and still be a progressive (Florida says hi). This means that yes, there were progressives who voted him in the first time around solely as a middle finger to the DP. That does kind of make me hopeful that at some point the D's are going to be given the middle finger definitely. Hopefully.

    Also...

    Regardless, seems my idea took off:https://www.publico.es/tremending/20...de-forocoches/

    This is pretty much a tradition for losing political parties back in Spain.

    Its sure as hell not my specialty or anything but actually it’s my understanding that they voted for the ticket, not the person.

    in other words if Biden was incapacitated then his chosen successor, Vice President elect Kamala Harris becomes president elect.

    In regards to the California Uber thing the wording on the ballot was (possibly deliberately?) weird. My sister voted for the opposite of what she meant to on that because of how it was worded.

    I mean, that's about as clear as it can be without someone dumbing it down to YES = I support Uber/Lyft/Doordash exploiting their workers like it's 1900 | NO = if it looks like an employee, acts like an employee, and works like an employee, it's an employee.

    She also had months to actually look at the text of the proposition.

    I ask that because Ratman says that "it doesn't have to be with Kamala".

    Either way, with how close the votes are and the situation at the senate and HOR, Joe's got tough times ahead.

    I'm not sure why a tweet from a rando is being taken seriously though, considering the guy also has some questionable tweets and retweets of his own. Some of you could try putting in the same amount of effort that goes into looking up random TM facts for this as well.

    Let's be real; unless we see a major shift in the attitudes of the rural population here over the next four years, our next elected President will likely be a Republican or otherwise opposed to UHC. Our political system is dominated by a generation spoon-fed propaganda about the "evils of Communism," without looking at any of its merits with an unbiased eye. Aaaaand who then proceeded to keep regurgitating this one-sided view due to genuine belief and its convenience as a tool for motivating their voters.

    UHC is only going to happen over their dead bodies. Or at least their dead careers. A public option with the ability for the government to negotiate the prices of services and drugs is the best we can really hope for. At least for what will likely be another decade.

    the five minutes I spent looking for some kind of corroboration before realizing some moron was trolling for clicks and got a bunch from suckers like myself is five minutes I should very much like to have back.

    From an outsider, I find it amusing how some pros of socialism and communism are ignored by American education, and how it actually manages to pass on from generation to generation. Not to forget the horrifying consumerism shit where many just accept and join in the fun.

    I'm so glad I'm not American right now.

    Out of curiosity, why do you guys claim to be the best country on Earth with such a visibly glaring flaw?
