Think again.  This has driven massive donations to democrat party and also majority of Americans in poll say they should wait to see who wins election.   Heck you even have Lindsay Graham turning into a whining sissy begging for more money on hannity for his campaign.

Remember how much money Hillary spend last time over trump? It was massive amount. Money dosent mean everything. I really think the population is crying for help because of the riots and lockdown.

Healthcare, coronavirus and economy are way above concern for crime and safety for most Americans.   Still waiting on that healthcare plan that was promised three years ago in two weeks.  Meaningless executive orders don't count.

Ah yes, let's have a proponent of a church led state be the arbiter of a constitution that explicitly forbids it.

That's as if you would make people who have fun harming others police officers tasked to protect people. Oh wait.

Would you care to provide any evidence that she is a proponent of a church-led state?

Great a die hard catholic gets rammed through senate right before election. Mitch the turtle can go fuck himself.

Is anti-Catholic bigotry really going to be the sum of the Democrat response?

Get ready to be reminded of Article VI: Clause 3 of the Constitution: "but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

Is it possible to be bigoted against bigots? She is a hardline catholic and from her history and quotes it is clear that she will have a hard time leaving out her catholic values from rulings that are supposed to be as impartial as possible.

Her views on sexuality and abortion are telling enough. She won't advocate for human rights, because her Christian values trump human rights.

And between me and you, that's a pretty bad thing for a person with such immense power to decide over human lives.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Republicans need as much power as they can get. Democrats have failed at everything, their support for criminals, lowlives andviolent revolutionary communists who have been running rampant for months now is sickening



Nothing to see here, move along

I don't have any emotional attachment to Democrats beyond the fact that they are not the ones trying to make the United States ever an inch closer to a theocracy. If Republicans wouldn't be enforcing the idea of a god I may even support them from time to time.

"Get ready to be reminded of Article VI: Clause 3 of the Constitution: "but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

I want to see the Right, Conservatives, Republicans and you NintendoPie's reaction to a hypothetical Atheist supreme court nominee. I hope you all remember that clause and don't try to hold the Atheist identity of said nominee against him/her and criticize any reservations the camp on the Right may have about an Atheist.

Only in big cities are thouse real concerns. We have to be frank here and say the US is way to split between the urban and rural populations. But I guess thats true to some degree for any country that's is this big. But the democrats have focused solely on the urban voters. That's gona hurt them again this election like it did on 2016.

Is being catholic = being a bigot? No judge is "neutral", bet they still all have to interpret the law, whatever their background.

You would think crime and safety would be more concern in big cities. I live in suburb of Austin, TX and I can tell you that there have been no protest here.  No riots.  Nothing.  Suburban people are more concerned about healthcare and coronavirus.

"But the poll showed the majority -- 78% -- remain “very” or “somewhat” concerned about the coronavirus. Nearly 60% said Trump is at least partly responsible for the protracted school and business closures due to the virus, as well as for the high number of coronavirus cases in the United States. More than 6 million Americans have been infected with the virus, more people than in any other country.

By contrast, most Americans do not see crime as a major priority and do not think it is increasing in their communities, the poll showed.

Only about 8% of American adults listed crime as a top priority for the country, compared with 30% who said it was the economy or jobs, and 16% who said it was the healthcare system.

And 62% of registered voters, including 62% of Democrats and 65% of Republicans, said crime was not increasing in their communities"

No I don't. But what i will agree is that the economy is #1 but that is strictly related to the lockdown. As soon as restrictions whete lifted the economy started rising again and the polls started showimg more possitive towards trump. The same thing happened with the riots. As they escalated trumps approval also rose. Now I cant say that thouse where the only reason trumps polls started rising. But it would be foolish to say that thouse are not big factors.

Things are getting off to a swell start.

If you're one of the fanatical ones who hates gay people definitely, yes. And based on viv's post it sounds like she is...
