    It's the perfect Republican ticket.

    Morality and intelligence. They'll get things done. They're not Washington insiders and they'll drain the swamp.

    Let's get this ticket moving now!

      Morality and intelligence. Have you looked at who lives in the White House now?  Need we list all of old Joe's flubs and sexual dalliances?   At least Gaetz doesn't drool.   Oh well

        He's senile, right? The pot should not call the kettle black.

          In my opinion, he is senile, unfit to hold office.

            Presumably, you still support Trump and would happily vote for him again. In my opinion, anyone who holds such an opinion is a traitor to this country, given that they support a man who pushed an insurrection and continues to undermine Democracy in almost every way possible. As a result, we now have more than 50% of Republicans who don't believe we had a free and fair election. That means America is doomed and Trump is in the driver's seat.

            I also don't know where I saw this, but you support the Georgia voting law and made the comment that you never had to take water to vote. I was wondering, when was the last time you stood in line for 8 hours in 100+ degree heat to vote?

              Trump did not win, I certainly voted for Trump due to being so pleased with his job performance in his first tear. And finding Biden totally unsuitable due to his past history in his Job as Senator., I found him to have a true history as a racist and found him to have a problem with mentation due to his age. So, that's why I voted for Trump and did not consider voting for Biden. I have no idea who I will vote for in 2024, I have no idea who will be running. It is my hope that we have two more suitable candidates. And I agree there most likely is at least 50% or more that feel the last election was not free or fair. 

              I took many days to read Georgia's new voting laws.  They clearly state food and beverage can be offered 150 feet from the voting poll entrance.  And I am not sure where you came up with 100+ degree heat, it was Nov 8, and in Atlanta Georgia it was 76 degrees.  I have added a link that provides Nov 2020 weather for Atlanta Georgia

              Perhaps the media reported this 100 degrees to make it all sound so cruel... It almost seems like you feel the people that vote in Georgia would not have the common sense to bring a bottle of water if they really felt they might require it. 

              This kind of ridiculous rhetoric makes these citizens sound like they don't have enough sense to come in out of the rain. 

              The facts are the new Georgia laws were so very careful to respect the citizen's needs to be able to vote in a timely easy fashion. One only needs to read it, and not take media blurbs facts. The facts are written in a bill that was passed, and become law.

                Sharlee, I still think that the very concept of keeping people away from sustenance while they wait in line to vote is both dumb and sinister. There really is not a good reason for such a provision.

                Who will guarantee that the lines and the wait will not be so long that most people would not need to carry food and drink along?

                So, I did not think that the Trump win in 2016 was necessarily fair either as Clinton won the popular vote. The outcome of the election was much closer and more so open to contention than this last one. There are many that saw this as I did but we did not whine about it then, though.

                  Come on Cred, do you really think that keeping food and water from folks, for an average of 51 minutes, is the issue the media is presenting? The proposed intent of the bill is to limit polling-line electioneering.

                  I am getting this mental picture of groups of volunteers racing to the front of the line to offer their "free water & food," (sustenance?). One group is wearing Vote Biden apparel and the other is wearing Vote Trump apparel.

                  When one group offers Walmart bottles of water and chips, the other will probably upgrade to Pellegrino and hot chicken wings. Ha!

                  I don't think this issue has anything to do with whether groups can offer sustenance, and everything to do with getting a name or idea in front of a voter as they are preparing to vote. It's not compassionate support, it is electioneering.

                    Well, GA, unless you have problems with the Guardian and other news sources, 6 to 10 hours is a bit longer than 50 minutes.

                    Do you really think that people are that fickle and can be persuaded to vote for a candidate based a family member or friend bringing them a ham sandwich? My vote cannot be had or so cheaply obtained... I would like to think that people are able to make their own voting decisions as adults, sans outside influences like food and water....

                    I can go along with the concept as long as the polling process does not exceed a reasonable amount of time, and 6 hours in line is not reasonable.

                  The new law lets them bring food and beverages, and persons can offer food and beverage at the polls. They did stipulate one must not approach people in line one they are 150 feet from the polling machines.  This seems very reasonable to me. Not sure in all my years I ever witnessed a party offering water and food at the polls.  I see no problem with it.  I can see the media made it very apparent these "poor people need this courtesy.  Georgia has their back... It's actually in the bill food and beverage dispersal is the law.

                  You do know the Dems are not really upset about the beverage law, they are upset about the new law that one must produce an ID in person and apply for a mail-in absentee ballot. No more blank mail-out ballots that can just be filled in. The ballot must be applied for and proof of ID.  This is what have the Dems all stewed up about the poor dehydrating folks.

                  What Georgia’s SB 202  ---   here is the scoop on what the bill says about food and water giveaways 

                  " (a) No person shall solicit votes in any manner or by any means or method, nor shall any

                  person distribute or display any campaign material, nor shall any person give, offer to give,

                  or participate in the giving of any money or gifts, including, but not limited to, food and

                  drink, to an elector, nor shall any person solicit signatures for any petition, nor shall any

                  person, other than election officials discharging their duties, establish or set up any tables

                  or booths on any day in which ballots are being cast

                  (1) Within 150 feet of the outer edge of any building within which a polling place is

                  So fear not, water can be on the premises. And it was not over 100 degrees on Nov 8th as the media claimed it was in Georgia. It was in the low 70's.

                    Sharlee,

                    That all may be fine AS long as you don't have people standing in line for several hours...then we will have problems.

      I guess you forgot this post -- You seem to feel a bit differently about the Dem nominee for president way back when you said this ---

      I had to post this since it appeared in a reputable left-wing source:

      https://www.huffpost.com/entry/joe-bide … 6a7a2a88f2

      This is serious stuff and I don't care how long ago the accusation happened. It will be worth every Democrat's time to follow this issue and then decide if they can support Biden. I was ready to support him, but I don't know if I can choose between two sexual predators.

      Seems a tad hypocritical.

      Who will the dems put up against them. Probably Cuomo.

          But hardly ever willing to realize you're being the hypocrite as well.  Partisan outrage is a funny thing.
