Inside your head.
There is a movement of voters who are surfacing these days (I assume this is legitimate) who make the following claim:

"I am a Republican but I'm voting for Biden."


Somebody please explain to me how anyone who is a Republican can read or be aware of the Democrat platform for 2020, and vote for Joe Biden.

I see one possibility...I disagree with it, but I understand it...Republicans are turned off by Donald Trump's personality and manner, and don't want to vote for him.

But that is a reason not to vote. How can anyone who claims to be a Republican see the Democrat platform and not be totally repulsed by it?

I don't get it.
Ethics and character voters, sick of the lies and divisive BS.
vote with the commies then big boy .

Whatever...the OP (and you) can't understand why republicans are voting for Biden--supposedly. Trump is a disgusting pervert. Unless you're truly a piece of shit yourself, you'd admit that. And you pretend that you can't understand why there are republicans who will not vote for him?
There are plenty of Democrats who will be voting for Trump as well. Surveys taken at his rallies revealed that 12 to 18% were registered Democrats. You are correct, we don't need a pervert in the White House.

We already have one....unless you think it's the trademark of a good father/husband to pay for sex from porn stars like your blob has done.

The blob's people say that there are democrats attending his rallies? Wow...the only thing more laughable is that someone believes them

Haven't met a live commie since late 80s and that wasn't even in this country. I voted for Joe Biden, for better governance for all of America. Maybe not too late for you to come back from the dark side, but vote how you wish. I can live with democracy in action, in our representative republic. Can you?

That remains to be seen. I guess you also don't believe in the Reagan Democrats either.

Trump paid her to GTF out of his life. She's a tramp that hired a lawyer who advised her that a million or so is chump change for a man as wealthy as Trump to get her out of the way. How many times have we seen this before with wealthy people in the past?

That you really believe he didn't have sex with Stormy and Cohen paid her out of his own pocket is sort of cute in a naive way. The Easter Bunny will be by next Spring to see you too.

Reagan Democrats were real. The blob stating that there were thousands of democrats at his rallies is pure fiction.

Middle class, suburban ghetto.
Michael Irvin was an obnoxiously boorish jerk who played for the Dallas Cowboys. Does anyone really believe cowboys fans would be OK with their team throwing every game just to prevent Irvin from having any success?
That’s what we’re talking about here. Surrendering the US and its liberty to communism just to remove trump.
I hope to God Americans aren’t that stupid.

If you don’t oppose it, you’re complicit in the hate, the cruelty, the dishonesty, the disgusting behavior.
Hmmmm...And what should happen to Trump supporters in a Democratic victory?
They should realize just how diseased they have become regardless of the outcome. On another thread, blobbers were telling me that Trump being a billion in debt was a good thing. You guys are embarrassments. You shouldn’t enjoy it so much
Non answer...I asked you what you think should happen with supporters? Not what you think of them, we already know your contempt.
They should realize just how diseased they have become regardless of the outcome.

Hopefully Biden Care (if elected) will set up some institutions for the mentally ill blob supporters.
Are all Trump supporters “diseased”, and in need of “institutionalized “?
Sure...we can go on with this...

Yes, all diseased...institutionalized....and in need of being educated. "Re-educated" infers they were educated at some point.
I want everyone to take in this disgusting, Communist like attitude Candy displays here..It is putrid in its anti American bent.
To be honest Candy, I don’t harbor the hatred you seem to harbor against those who hold differing political opinions, in fact, I really think you post many times for shock value, and to troll...But, in case you’re not tongue in cheek here, then I sincerely believe you are one evil bitch.

Really?
oh, I understand perfectly why there are Progressive Republicans like Colin Powell, (Who voted for Obama btw) won’t vote for Trump...Do you?

Party over country is like driving the wrong way down a one way street, We don't need any president Republican or Democrat who loudly proclaims to work only for half the country.
Yep. That's what we get when we divide ourselves into tribes that are led by "the base". The President has to please "the base" in order to remain President.

Just another self-inflicted wound. Meanwhile, the two parties make it impossible for a third party to emerge, and America is more concerned about who the Kardashian girls are banging.

Possibly because people realize that very little of what is in a platform gets implemented.

Frankly, there's really not much in Biden's platform that is that radical, but even if it were, so what? A lot of it will die in Congress.

The question for everyone should be, which one of these guys can run the country.

The guy who thinks that all the professionals in the various government agencies are part of a Deep State Conspiracy to get him?

Or the guy who listens to the generals, the doctors, and the diplomats on how to run the country.

Romney made a drama out of not voting for Trump, but then Romney, like Paul Ryan before him, was never really a republican, just a greedy cleptocrat looking to benefit self in most expedient manner possible. This is explanation for those same self-professed republicans who say they will vote for Biden, they were never really republicans, they were just as with Romney, simply using the most available path to enrich themselves...
What do you think Trump is? Romney was a Corporate Raider, buying, stealing pensions and jobs from workers.

Trump is just an outright mobster. Stealing you blind.

Maybe those decent Republicans who care more about their Country than a corrupt party think character counts!

It will not die if we can get rid of the corrupt McConnell Senate!

Actually, the reason a third party won't emerge... because third parties are even fucking crazier than the mainstay parties. Ross Perot. Ralph Nader. Pat Buchanan. These are what you get with "Third Parties", not someone who takes back the mainstream, but usually one of the angry "Tribes" being upset they aren't getting enough attention. Then they end up getting blamed for the guy who DID get elected.

The ironic thing is, both parties usually do a good job of nominating someone who can credibly run the country. I hated Mitt Romney with a passion. He would have done all the usual stupid Republican things like cutting taxes for rich people and deregulating wall street on a pinky swear they'd be good.

But you know what, if Covid had broken out in the last year of the Romney Presidency, he wouldn't have gone around telling you to wear your Magic Underwear to protect you from it. He would have listened to Drs. Fauci and Blix and worked with the governors on a coordinated plan.

If you are voting Biden, you aint Republican.

That means you want POTUS STACKED, THE TRUMP TAX CUTS REPEALED, THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY DESTROYED, FEDERAL MANDATED LOCKDOWNS, AND A PRESIDENT WHO IS IN CHINA’S POCKET.

THATS NOT A REPUBLICAN.
Trump is the one with a Chinese bank account. And look at Ivanka’s patents.

If you're not an obedient Trumpster, you must be a commie. That's it. That's how far they have devolved. A bunch of Archie Bunkers running around, grunting things.

Those people aren't republicans. I don't care how much they dislike Trump's tweets, no actual Republican would support these Biden campaign promises in particular:

Green New Deal: $100 trillion in proposed spending, making the budgets over the past 4 years look paltry by comparison.

Anti-2nd Amendment: promises to ban semi-automatic rifles, and make Beto O'Rourke his gun control zar.
The green new deal was an AOC/ Bernie deal. They lost, Biden won. His plan gradually changes, creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs.

And if you do not believe in Science and Global warming you are like an ostrich with it’s head in the sand.

Are you sure? In 2009, the reason why we didn't get a good Health Care Reform package, was because guys like Joe Lieberman (D-Israel) and Webb and a few others opposed things like a public option and a Medicare Buy in. And even though the Democrats had a large majority, they refused to end the filibuster.

So even if they get the majority and end the filibuster this time, you'll still have 51 egos larger than life making legislation in the Senate.

He inappropriately touches children and assaults his SS wives. He has been accused of shoving his fingers in one of his aides.
Biden lies all the freakin time.
Biden threatens to fight civilians who disagree with him and tells the other side to kiss his ass.
You must not have been born in TN. Tennesseans usually have more intellectual honesty than this.
But did he brag about grabbing them by the p****? You guys believe any story you are told. We actually heard Trump say that!

I use to have a friend like you, and he was educated in history and politics, much like you appear to be from your replies.
The problem with both my friend and apparently you as well, is that you sound like an educated idiot.
Based on most all the replies youve made in this thread alone, it shows how you have a twisted outlook.
If the entire world was living in peace and harmony, and we all ate rainbow ice cream, you still wouldnt be happy.
