Can you believe it has been four years since Donald Trump was elected president of the United States?
Time flies, huh?
I thought I would check in with my American readers tonight, the eve of the U.S. election, to see how you’re feeling about it all.
I suspect most of you are voting for — or have already voted for — Joe Biden to be your next president. And if polls are to be believed, he will probably win it, even if they don’t have the full results Tuesday night.
Pundits are saying many Americans feel this is the most important presidential election in the country’s history, while Saturday Night Live this past weekend painted it as a choice between two old white guys.
We’re hearing here in Canada that there are fears of election night violence in parts of the U.S. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen. We’re also hearing that this election could be decided in the courts.
Whatever the case, it is increasingly looking like I won’t be writing many more Donald Trump posts in this blog — unless he wins, of course.
So, it is time to find some free Joe Biden photos, because I think I might be needing them over the next four years, eh?
Happy Voting Day, America!
actually, more like The Nightmare Before Christmas. aka “with bated breath”. And whether the border stays closed forever %O
Has it only been four years? It feels like eight.
A Democrat Senate majority is the best outcome. The Senate completely ignored their responsibility to act as a check on the abuse of power of the President. The Senate approved Trumps three far-right wing Supreme Court justices. The Senate confirmed Trumps current Attorney General who auditioned for the job by promoting his decades-old opinion of an Imperial Presidency. But, this fits the trajectory of the Republicans for the past 12 years. They just could not accept that a black man was in the White House, and the Senate promised to oppose everything that Obama proposed – no matter how good for the country it would be. The last four years was a determined effort to dismantle anything that the Obama administration enacted.
Should Trump win, expatriation is looking good.
Not worried. The turnout at the polls is going to be very low while the absentee and early voter turnout is by far the highest rate ever. The biggest danger at the polls will be catching COVID from another voter who sneezes on you.
There’s all kind of $#!+ out there about election violence. Most of it comes from greasy kids in their parents’ basements posting fantasies they’ll never dare try. The media picks it up and tries to magnify it into a civil war. They love to stir up fear and anxiety, as it is good for ratings. There are a few crazies on both sides but when it comes out to a 60/40 split, any disturbances will be few and far between. When you’re beat, you’re beat.
