[Election 2020] Joe Biden Wins

BogartBogart Streetwise Hercules Fighting The Rising OddsRegistered User, Moderator mod
edited November 2020 in Debate and/or Discourse
OP copied from the last one, including this sentence.

This here is your official thread for discussing the great basket of wonder and joy that is the upcoming 2020 election.

What You Can Talk About:

- Any national or local 2020 US election.
- The impact of the conventions that just happened.
- The policy platforms of candidates AS THEY PERTAIN TO THE ELECTIONS. "Biden plans to roll out a public option" is okay. "A public option is awesome because of X,Y, and Z" is not.
- Polls related to the election.
- Voting outreach efforts
- Other things that directly pertain to the 2020 election and have not been explicitly banned.

What You Can't Talk About:

- The 2020 primaries that have already occurred. Upcoming 2020 primaries, if there are any left, are okay.
- Bernie Sanders
- 20-motherfucking-16
- Hillary Fucking Clinton
- Policy in general. This is not the place to discuss health care or taxes or policing in general. We have threads for all those things! If not, feel free to make one!
- Who you plan to personally vote for. Nothing good has ever come from a conversation in these threads about why you're definitely voting for Biden / voting third party / not voting. Just rest assured that your personal reasons for voting are the best in the whole world and everyone agrees with you and thinks you're smart and good looking. Masterfully done, you.

If you have previously been banned from this thread, you are still banned from this thread, sorry. Rest assured you can participate in discussions when 2024 rolls around, assuming elections are still a thing that exists in that far away time.

HEY! LISTEN! Some bright spark had the excellent notion to link the resources thread from SE++ for people who are having a hard time, so:

If you're having a tough time of it in these testing times, here are some resources that can help.

    From the last thread:
    I don't think it's funny. He has the ear of a lot of people with guns. He is actively misleading and getting them worked up.

    And it's not academic at this point. We've already seen a rising tide of real violence in relation to his rhetoric. He has whipped these people in to believing the United States is being stolen from them by "liberals". Most of them will be far too cowardly to act on it, but there will be plenty who aren't.

    Aww I wanted to get 270 pages out of that thread.

    Anyway, reminder again for everyone: if you know anyone in the states still in doubt, ask them to check their ballots. Tomorrow is the deadline to repair rejected mail in / absentee ballots in many places

    I just saw Colbert commenting on the meltdown. The fucker broke Colbert.

    That clip from MSNBC (where they cut out of the rant and refute everything) was great and infuriating at the same time. Really, it took you 4 fucking years to get to that point? You couldnt have done this from the beginning and spared us this whole thing?

    Jesus fuck, I hipe you guys get through this and have something of a country left afterwards. It is heartbreaking to watch from afar.

    It reminds me of the "illegal immigrants" rhetorical trick. Keep referring to stuff with the right adjective and it tarnishes perception of them.

    Even if they did, presumably the remedy ordered would be saying that all those votes have to be redone with the proper observation procedures in place this time.

    Not, you know, just saying "okay, guess all those votes go in the trash."
