    Who Are You Voting For This Year?

    I'm voting for Joe Biden because he's the only Democrat who's experienced and competent to run as President.

    I'm voting for, and encouraging others to vote for, the actual nominee. No 3rd parties, no pie-in-the-sky-because-my-conscience, just the nominee selected by the party. I have my early preferences but if they don't make it to the ballot, it is what it is.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I don't plan on voting at all.

    Emma Goldman summed things up perfectly in our system. -If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.

    Whosoever runs against tRump as a Democrat.

    Or that skunk out back. One or the other.

    I'm watching the impeachment, I was up till the wee hours of the morning last night watching it.,..and all I'm left with is the gnawing realization that I spilled blood all over the world...for this.

    I would never have done so...for this.

    Now I have to be able to explain to my children why people just like their daddy did so, and why they did nothing while this happened......why I'm going to do nothing while it happens. Loved by the gods, cursed to live while others died....so that I can watch this?

    Might I ask why you think he's the only one with experience and competence? Warren and Bernie both fit that category. And while I have a few major hold ups on Buttigeig, and he's less experienced, sometimes fresh eyes make all the difference. Honestly, Bidens stance in many issues (cutting social services, a history of racist policy efforts, his stance on abortion) from what I've found, make him my least favorable candidate.

    Either way. I'll vote for the democratic nominee.

    I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love.
    It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss.
    Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.

    Because Biden have been experience in office as Vice President and he's very efficient to do the job. I don't trust other nominees especially Warren and Bernie after finding out that both of them have a shady history.

    What about Bidens shady history? He's supported ending social security. He's voted for drug laws that target African Americans. He's stated that Roe vs Wade went too far and women shouldn't have rights to their own bodies. Every candidate has some sort of shady history when they get to be that age. This arguement is the Anne one that divided voters last time and caused trump to win.
