    Where is America going?   Do you like where America is going?  Or are you FEARFUL of where America is going?

      I am fearful of where America is going. Although Joe may just pull an old Dem trick out of the bag... An old "hey you all were suckers ploy". He may turn out to be an old dyed in the wool Democrat, and you won't see him adopt any leftist ideas. I mean can one teach an old dog new tricks or does that old dog pull the last trick, and bit you in the butt?

      It will be very interesting to see how Joe's time in the office plays out.

      Other than the quote circulating attributed to Joseph Stalin, "Those who cast the votes decide nothing, those who count the votes decide everything", the most truthful statements circulating right now are about, doing the same things and expecting different results.

      We have given Joe Biden nearly 50 years to show us what he is capable of....which is absolutely nothing! BUT, he is promising to deliver on it now, by golly!
      It has only taken President Trump 4 years, to make and keep promises and get the work of the people done AND it took much less than 4 years, for us to find out just how ugly the underbelly of D.C. really is!

      I am only fearful of "where America is going" if the D.C. Establishment (of which Joe and Kamala are into...deep) wins!

        He has kept so many of his promises and did it all by the uphill climb. This morning it well looks like we are on the way to having a vaccine or three... LOL And the fool Gov of New York gave a statement that he worries about how Trump will handle getting it to the public, and we should wait until Joe takes office...  Trump has had a plan to get that vaccine out for many months. And we should wait> How many more lives would we lose? Oh, and yeah we should listen to Cuomo... LOL, he is responsible for 1/3 of the covid death toll.

        My God, so sick of putting up with the sheer hypocrisy, and yes stupidity of the Democrats.

          Cuomo...what a joke! But, again...Trump gets results, Dems do not, so they MUST talk crap about him and work against him, all while he works for the people and gets results....can't have that!!

            It baffles me... On one hand, they speak of healing, coming together. Yet they just are not able to realize how hypocritical these kinds of words sound after the past four years of listening to all kinds of ridiculous accusations about the president. I think the actor James Wood message to Dems in a tweet the other day says it all --- However, I can't repeat it here or I will get banned for sure.  Let's just say his two words really hit the mark.

              Totally agreed with the tweet.    Succinct........and I am a registered Democrat but I refuse to vote for Biden-Harris- nope!!!!  I have been listening to unbiased news shows regarding how the election is rigged & how the Democratic Party was tampering w/elections.    Of course, the mainstream media won't admit this at all.  The Democratic Party hated Trump from the inception & devised methodology to smear, damage, & ultimately get rid of him.

                IT's promising to hear you saw through all of the rhetoric and moved away from the Dems at this juncture. In my view, I have never witnessed such deceitful politicking. And I have never had to realize that a majority of votes were cast for a man that us clearly having cognitive problems, and actually did not even campagn. IT is well time we stand up to this kind of movement. It is clear it is time or settle for what is left of an America we won't reconize.

                  What movement, Sharlee, is it one that counters an idea that the voters get to decide who is president be it through popular vote or the Electoral College?

                  What is your proposed solution?

                  I had to live with your Trumps and  Reagans, so you can live with my Bidens, Obamas and Clintons.

                  Face it, you lost this time and the sooner you acknowledge that and accept it, the better you all will feel.

                    Yes, voters do get to decide who is elected the next president, not a media call.

                    I lived with Obama, as well as Bill Clinton, I voted for both. I loved Clinton, he was a good president the country thrived under Bill... In regards to Obama, never saw much of him, he flew under the radar, and I was made to feel shame for the country due to his red-kine and the genocide his administration chose to sit out. Just my view. I am not sure what kind of president Biden will make I did express my concerns in regard to his mental status and his lackluster campaign. Again an opinion.

                    Not sure if you may not have realized there is a true movement.

                    My gosh how belligerent to assume you can dictate what I should do or feel.  I will let it go and just consider it a rude comment. IT almost sounds threatening.  The cancel out ideology is a silly one. But it does bode well with those that cling to groupthink. Nice and cozy.

                    What is the solution --- There is none

                  Not a chance- you’ll see when it becomes so obvious how the Democrats tried to steal this election that it can’t be denied.
                  Yet, why do I believe you will still deny it? Won’t you. We’ll see soon and then you can explain that you were, or are, not brainwashed. I can’t wait to see you squirm.

                Yes, just like you are a liberal black female, a registered Democrat from whom I have heard nothing but derision regarding Biden now and Obama while he was President.

                Hmm...

                Now, THAT is something to ponder

      Where do you see us headed?

      Do you see us with pretty much open borders?
      Do you see us supporting millions of immigrants that do not have the skill set to support themselves?
      Do you see us supporting millions of refugees?
      Do you see us bankrupt?
      Do you see us with massive inflation in our future?
      Do you see us being disarmed?
      Do you see us being controlled by central government, right down to the size of our Big Gulp?
      Do you see further erosion of our factories and manufacturing?
      Do you see us losing our small businesses in favor of deep pocket corporations?
      Do you see us again giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens?

      What do you see in our future?  I see ALL of those things in our future.  Hopefully not in my lifetime, but certainly in my grandchildren's.

        I see some of them but certainly not all of them and the ones I do see, such as losing small businesses in favor of deep-pocket corporations, are already happening and have little to do with who is in political power. Right now, money is power. Unless we change that, our nation will eventually fall.

          Fairly accurate perception, it is nice to read a comment that shows insight into the reality.

          The Biden win certainly does mean change for the Nation, not the changes people expect. Many people think they have vanquished some evil tyrant. 

          Truth is, you don't vanquish tyrants at the voting booth... its the tyrants and their sycophant supporters that control election results & remain in power (IE - Putin, Jinping) once they are in power only their death will remove them.

          Trump was the major Domino that had to fall, so that the world can get back on the track it had been on, now Biden will facilitate Agenda 2030, the Global Compact for Migration, the Paris Accord, etc. and the concept of America as a Nation, as an independent, sovereign, unique entity will continue to be eroded, Nationality will become an evil word.

          A very different world is being born, technology is transforming our world, there is no place for individualism or independence as had been standardized in old American thinking and written into the Constitution, in the new world coming into existence... there will be Social Credit, Digital Wallets, 24/7 monitoring of people, and AI will make things like driving obsolete within a decade.

          The trade war and contesting China's growing global dominance will end, China's ascension as global leader and America stepping back from center stage will resume.  Biden and the rest in DC will go right back to being sycophants not just to China, but International Corporatism as well.

              He actually opposed almost all of it.

              He opposed China, he fought to improve trade agreements, he opposed open borders, he believed in the benefit of unique cultures and nations (check out his UN General Assembly speech) he refused to enter America into new wars (Syria and Iran offered him plenty of opportunity).

              All these positions (other than the new trade agreements with Canada and Mexico) will be swiftly reversed.  I suspect we will become more heavily involved in foreign conflicts again as well (the war machine is hungry).

              Acceptance that Biden is nothing more than a establishment stooge and yes-man to the worst machinations in DC will keep you from being disappointed with the events of the next few years.

        I saw this w/the Obama administration which was why I voted for Trump in 2016.v  I also voted for Trump in 2020.   Voting for Biden meant most of the above occurring.    I do not want an intrusive government- I WANT LESS GOVERNMENT.  We have FAR TOO MUCH government already.

          One should try to understand what is being taught in almost every University, one should try to understand what the world leaders have agreed to, what the UN drives towards.

          The Election of our President is not an American issue only. 

          Many corporations put vast sums of money into influencing the results. Lets not forget it wasn't so long ago our Supreme Court decided that corporations were in essence the equivalent of a citizen, and could contribute to elections as they saw fit.

          China had as much at stake in the outcome of this race as anyone, if you don't think they did everything imaginable to influence the outcome you are misguided and misunderstand the influences that control our Federal politics.

          In many ways what China has accomplished with their Social Credit, Facial recognition, and Digital currency systems is going to become incorporated into our society and our way of life.

          What I don't believe is necessary, and what I do believe will cause harm to a great many innocent Americans just trying to live their lives peacefully, are efforts like Critical Race Theory which will be put back in the forefront,  How to be an Antiracist will become required reading in public schools... I even hear they plan on making a detailed list of those who supported and contributed to Trump, to no good purpose I am sure.
