It is sad. However, he's still a country mile better than the Republican "stable genius" alternative, wouldn't you say ?

Biden's stance on the climate emergency on its own is enough to differentiate him from climate change denying Trump.

Like almost every POTUS Biden's not my cup of tea but he's infinitely preferable to the present incumbant who will go down in history as the worst of the lot of them.

What are Biden's policies, please? I honestly don't know.

Thanks for posting those, DM. I appreciate you answering. The problem is that I'm not sure that Joe Biden really exists in the real, mental sense. This means that other people are formulating policy. Here's who he used to be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcpO329xTGI

A bit of a contrast to Trumps crime bill and Bill Clinton signed it.

So you have an entrenched view; no point in carrying on.

As I previously said, Biden is not my cup of tea - very few American politicians are - but the choice is between him and Trump. Are you seriously saying Trump is preferable?

This is what I struggle with. Even if you're a life-long conservative, how do you look at Trump and think "He's a great leader and a great representative for our country" ?

The man's an emotional infant, unable to withstand the mildest hint of criticism without lashing out in retaliation. I genuinely don't know how you can be a billionaire and the most powerful man on the planet, and still be as insecure as a sulky teenager.

He's turned the presidency into a family business, and his isolationist approach to international affairs has provoked horror and disbelief from US allies across the globe.

His divide and rule tactics have taken the country to the brink of civil war, and he's dropping heavy hints that he will refuse to abide by the results of the upcoming election. The man has no respect for anyone or anything, certainly not the office he holds. No loyalty either, other than to those who support him unquestioningly. He'd throw his own family under the bus in a heartbeat if he thought it was the best option for him personally.

His arrogant, ignorant approach to the pandemic has contributed significantly to over 200k deaths, a fact he seems to barely consider worthy of acknowledgement. He's still undermining efforts to combat the virus to this day. But then what would you expect from a pathological liar ?

The sad reality seems to be that none of this matters to his base, as long as he hates the people they hate. And the even sadder reality is that this country is heading down the exact same track.

Could not agree more until I reached your last sentence.

Actually, you couldn't be more wrong. As usual. What about you? Are your views not entrenched? They are always so eloquently expressed and well reasoned.
