He is NOT Trump.

"For it is not light
that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the
whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the
conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the
hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be
proclaimed and denounced." Frederick Douglass 1852

I'm willing to consider viable (edit to add: electable) options.

Got any to offer?

"He is a profoundly decent man: a man of faith, a man of compassion; a man who is willing to listen to different viewpoints, capable of evolving, and able to admit his mistakes. He is a man who loves deeply, mourns greatly, and gives fully. He is a man with actual meaningful, healthy relationships with other human beings. He is a humble man who sees others as more important than himself.

In other words, he is everything his opponent is not.

He is also, not perfect.

I’m okay with that."
Biden

From Chas' link:

quote:
Stop telling me the choice isn’t clear.

I’m not voting for Joe Biden begrudgingly.
I’m not holding my nose or halfheartedly standing behind his campaign, and I’m not supporting him simply because he’s opposing Donald Trump.
I’m voting for Joe Biden because I know that he won’t deny the existence of a pandemic.
He won’t blame viruses on Republicans.
He won’t silence medical experts.
He won’t reject Science.
He won’t allow tens of thousands of Americans to die in order to protect his ego.
He won’t tweet demeaning nicknames for his opponents.
He won’t validate nonsensical conspiracies.
He won’t shout over female reporters.
He won’t shut down social media apps when teenagers hurt his feelings.
He won’t dismantle the Postal Service in order to deny Americans their essential liberties.
He won’t make fun of people with disabilities.
He won’t call racists fine people.

So, hold out for the perfect Dem, if you don’t like Biden. See where that gets you.

The rest of us are going to bury RBG.

Then we're going to bury Trump ... electorally.

And then bury the GOP politically. No comity. No consensus-seeking.

Are we?

Clearly, some higher force wants this country to descend into chaos.

Something will happen to hand the election to Trump.

Pretty darn good metaphor for this election.

There are people, however, who actually wouldn't mind if the nation chose the sh!t with bits of broken glass in 2020. They reason that the results of that choice would hasten the revolution in the Democratic party, and the Revolution in the United State. These people consider the existing system so perverse that they are willing to sacrifice the futures of hundreds of millions of today's people in return for an abstract idea of justice in the future. These are the Bernie supporters ... I know, I've got one of them in the family.

You are totally ignoring the wacko evangelists who might actually be happy in thinking that Trump is the antichrist, and to reelect him and encourage mayhem simply hastens the rapture.
