The only thing Trump has to offer non-racist Americans is his claim that the economy was so strong pre-covid. But that is not even close to the truth. After Republicans wrecked our economy, and the world's, in 2007-08, Obama got it back on track. Trump was handed a growing economy that was humming along nicely. So, naturally Trump did what Republicans do: give a huge tax break to the rich which doubled the budget deficit.

At the time of covid, our economy was running a huge deficit, middle class wages were stagnant, working class families were having to hold down two or three jobs and still couldn't afford decent housing, and income inequality was at an historic level. The deficit caused by the tax cut means that we don't have the borrowing capacity to carry the economy until the pandemic eases, so what would have been a recession will probably now be a depression.

For a century now, we have been in a cycle where Republicans wreck our economy and Democrats have to rebuild it. Imagine where we would be if Democrats could spend their time in office moving the country ahead, instead of repairing the damage done by Republicans. It would be nice to think we can break that cycle at some point, but for now it will continue, although this time the damage done by Republicans may be permanent.

You could not be more correct. But facts don't matter when all you listen to is Fox News and Limbaugh and wear a QAnon T-shirt and hat.

B1G Basketball could be played in a bubble with the players attending class remotely.
Possibly in Indy.

Imagine if Democrats actually cared about "moving the country ahead" instead of satisfying their corporate donors. If Dems actually supported progress, they wouldn't kneecap popular policies like M4A. We don't have two political parties, we have one party of capitalism.

The Obama administration was handed the worst economy since the great depression and created more NEW jobs in 3 years than DJT did in the 3 years BEFORE the Covid pandemic which he completely mismanaged. I guess moving the country ahead is making sure MORE than 50 million file for unemployment and lose their health insurance during a deadly pandemic. You know the ACA. And nearly 180,000 DEAD Americans isn't enough for you? More deaths than any other country in the world. We have 5% of the world's population and nearly 25% of the deaths. Go buy some more QAnon T-shirts and hats. Is this what Jesus taught you?

Imagine is Democrats actually supported progressive candidates. Instead we get something in "the middle" which means nothing but trying to steal some R votes. Four+ years of planning and this is where we landed. Fun.

And there is only one party of freedom. Obama was suppose to get us out of the war in Afghanastan. Instead he has us paying Trillions of dollars to stay plus added Yemen. What a failure. Trump said the same and he has done nothing.

Vote gold.
