While it's true that he is the worst of the terrible, that's no incentive to endorse Joe Biden or any other Democrat. The system has failed us. Oligarchy, no matter which party rules, has taken over. Frankly, I don't know how we can change this. I just know voting for either party won't improve a thing. Voting Green is a fool's errand because most voters don't give a crap about that organization. Only a massive uprising by all or most of the people can work. Can that happen? What do you think? In my view, ten more years on the current trajectory may be enough to rile the populace but by then it is likely too late. Maybe we will get a stimulus package within a month or two. The scope being discussed is a kick in the ass to everyone in need. Even the looming depression will not shake the oligarchs, in my personal view. Only we, in capital letters, can make them care enough to change.

Do you agree with this? Is dystopia imminent?

Schumer, Pelosi, the Republican Party, law'n'order, austerity, inflated health care prices, stingy stimulus - What's not to like? At least it's not Trump.

"JUST IN: Leading experts predict 2021 to be instant replay of 2020. “We don’t know where people are getting the idea things will appreciably change. Same government, same economic system, fucking hello??!!”, an expert stated."
I've seen the above tweeted around lately. Here is my take:
Under Trump, it would instantly be worse. The unhinged would be the accepted norm forever. I would feel like Charleton Heston raving before the ruins of the Statue of Liberty. The Chicken Little Prophesy has proven correct. Increasing death and destruction.
With Biden, confusion for a year or so as some of the pieces of government get restored to functionality. Then, malaise and further drifting to the right, as the left becomes ever more frustrated and angry. Suppression the norm, unless revolt finally prevails. The Democratic majority as toothless as the present Democratic minority.
The impending depression will compound either disastrous scenario.

I just watched a clip of Obama as president, who, on boarding the helicopter, realized he forgot to salute the military guard on the ground. After getting all the way on board he descended the ramp to apologize to the man and then boarded the chopper again. Beautifully done. Admirable, even. People tend to overlook Obama's transgressions because he has style and elegance. It's a prime reason why his word bears so much weight with Democrats. I never trusted him from the get-go, but I see why so many love him.
I worried before he gained the nomination that he seemed more Republican-like than Democrat. Of course, that was before I became fully woke to realize that Democrats are Republicans.

I don't have a formal education. I flunked the tenth grade and dropped out. During my Navy days from April '62 to Jan '65 I got a GED and a high school equivalency from the Texas Dept of Education. Everything else I know is non school and non work related. (My discharge was honorable. It was a three year enlistment, but they kept me inactive an additional three years) What I am getting at is this. I believe a depression the like of which we have never seen is lurking beyond Nov. 3. I don't have certificates or backing to corroborate my words, so don't take my word for anything I post here. Check it out for yourself.
All this looting of the tax payers' money by non tax paying entities, plus the layoffs, foreclosures and business failures, along with a pandemic, no health care, and zero action from the government for the people, to me spells collapse of the entire system. If I am wrong somebody please advise in what way.

Hillary was a shoe-in. Dewey had Truman on the ropes. Biden has huge poll numbers. Don't ask me. I don't know who is going to win. I hope it's Mark Charles, but am realistic enough to know horseshit when it floods the stall. The wise in which Biden is superior to Trump is that I expect him to appoint people who actually want the departments they serve in to function. Apart from that, I have low expectations. In fact, I plan to continue the struggle no matter which man wins. To quote Leonard Cohen: Democracy is coming to the USA. But it won't happen before 2004 or later.

I urge everyone to keep this list and make three boxes after each item. Then, in Box #1 put the date said item is seriously attempted. In Box #2, put the date it is even minimally accomplished. In Box #3, put, "Well, y' know, the Republicans ..." if no effort is expended. I copied this from somebody on Facebook.
