70.5m people voted for Trump yet you continue to say that they're: 1) brainwashed and 2) stupid.

you have learned nothing about the last two elections, Trumpism won't go away because Trump will no longer be President.

Can we please stop calling it "Trumpism"? It's Fascism, don't let him slap his name on that, too...


Not all Trump-Voters are stupid, but just fell for conservatives in power who used fascisms potential to seduce people and get voters. It's the fascist go-to move, hijack the middle to the far right.

Good for America, good for the planet & human race that Trump was defeated but a reminder that while this dangerous clown is done, half of the US supports him - meaning the US remains a mess and a lot of work lays ahead

Biden is an astonishingly poor candidate from a disgustingly corrupt party that railroaded one of their own (Bernie) twice in successive elections. As many activists have commented from the outset of Biden getting the nomination to face Trump, were he to win then the work would have to begin the next day to hold Joe accountable & ensure he does the right things. That sounds more promising than the alternative but it remains a very divided country

The problem I still see with the US is that much like when Obama was elected, many will dance & clap like at the end of so many American films when they are nowhere near the end of needed efforts. Let's hope apathy does not set in and business as usual does not continue with the Dems of coddling special interests and maintaining the status quo
Let’s also hope Biden and gang don’t revert to the warmongering under Obama who launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Why are we discussing Obama? If we must shouldn’t we mention Obamacare?

On second thought, let’s not. We will see where Biden is going over the days leading to 20 January.

Anyone want to bet that the crowd at the inauguration will be bigger than Trump’s?

Come on... that is such a load of BS to even bring up the spectre of Hitler. You don't have to be a Trump supporter to suspect that massive amounts of voter fraud are involved in this election. Anyone with any bit of statistical training would have to smell (at least) a hint of something being off here. Read through this post from a 1st generation American of Portuguese descent and tell me that it doesn't at least make you think... What a shameful post, Castro!

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I’m a sentimental ol’ fool, crying at 3 am listening to Harris & Biden’s presentations.
Cried when Obama became president too.

I loved the message of hope for future generations to be whatever they wish to be regardless of gender or ethnicity.
The message for women was wonderful.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I just watched Biden's speech from last night. It was filled with love, hope and gratitude. Not a single drop of hate. And this is one of the things I love about Biden... He doesn't try to make the presidency about himself and only himself. He makes the presidency about Americans... all Americans. Not only those who support or vote for him. It's not an ego trip for him, and he doesn't thrive on encouraging hate and trying to divide Americans.

I feel like a huge, dark cloud is being lifted and the Sun is coming out again.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Seriously Fmf? not at war?

I believe the war has been within, on our streets, in moments of civil unrest.

And it is an utter relief to know that we can look forward to a peaceful future.

The Nazi (National Socialist) party was a form of fascists, but there are many other examples, including in Countries like Canada and the US. Huey Long for example.

The Republicans lost the presidential race but made huge strides in other areas. US freedoms will continue to be chipped away. Illegal abortions anyone?

I didn't say Trump was a fascist, I was just answering your question: "You mean like Hitler".

No, not just like Hitler, but there are many forms of fascism. I'd say, in my honest opinion (not a fact, an opinion) more like Huey Long.
