I would like to point out that it wasn't just democrats who voted for Biden.
There were MANY Independents (like me) and republicans who voted for Biden/Harris, as well.
Many, many Americans were moved to vote for someone who most likely was not their first choice.
They did it because they knew the country was going in the wrong direction, and the ship needed to
I will be relieved in 73 days, when 45 is OUT of the White House.
Hopefully, he'll be leaving in handcuffs, and even if Biden wants to, a Presidential Pardon doesn't
apply to State charges.
I wish the New York Attorney General all the luck in the world with bringing state charges against him.
THAT will make me extremely happy.
Until then, I'll remain cautiously optimistic.
I'm feeling a few things:
First, I'm surprised Biden won. I didn't think he would pull it off.
Second, I'm glad I added my vote with millions others to say Trump is wrong for this country and we should reject everything he says and stands for.
And Third, my Aunt posted the image below on her FB. I'll keep it in mind and remember what another smart person said, "nobody wins for long."
Biden isn't my ideal president but after four years of the orange a-hole this is very good news. He at least comes across as sincere and caring. I think he will at least try and do the right thing most of the time compared to the past four years of dysfunction, hatefulness, and self-serving of the orange stain.
Also, I'm pleased that my state, Georgia, turned blue. I hope it will stay that way.
I worry that his base will cause blood shedding and troubles .
I don’t even believe yet that he will actually leave the WH .
I grew up w stories of Mussolini and Hitler for breakfast while in Italy , and for dinner , stories of papadopoulos While in Greece .
I will breathe when the garbage are out .
Mean time , covid is not getting any better . This is not going well guys , all hospitals full in hampton roads , we are tired , social distancing w open restaurants and bars and schools is not working . I don’t have staff , I don’t have beds , and people still having MIs and strokes regardless covid .
I've been electioneering all day and happy about this, of course. When people say it is not over yet they are exactly correct. Trump will sue, kick and scream, and flop around like a chicken with its head cut off. Trump claims falsely that he won. He knew something like this could happen, and it did. Now into what really happened here.
Trump told his people that you had to vote in person and that absentee and mail in voting was so full of fraud. He even said some people would be able to vote twice. LOL It is not true. Many vote this way and always will because of their location, etc. Trump and all politicians vote this way because they are never seen at a polling place and being slapped on the back, shaking hands, and talking. Trump tried to take over the Post Office to stop these votes. It failed.
All voting has a time frame to it but once the voting was done it went into the counting of the votes. This took much more time and there is no cut off for the counting. Every vote must be counted and Trump and his GOP cannot control or oversee this process. This is simply not allowed. People complain that they do not get it because Trump was ahead. Then all votes switched to Biden. Yes. The Trump votes were mostly November 3rd and were counted first. Next was the absentee or mail ins. Again, all votes must be counted.
Biden got over the required number of electoral votes. Trump declared himself the winner but was stuck at 214 electoral votes. He needed 270 to win but stopping the count does not make Trump the winner. If you add in Georgia at 16 electorals and North Carolina at 15, then Alaska at 3 electorals Trump has a possible 244 electoral votes. It means he did not win. That's it. Trump is done and it is over. There is no way around this even trough the Supreme Court. This is the Democratic process we have in this country and Trump lost. His legal teams cannot stop Biden from being a confirmed winner but in the meantime Trump will say anything and do anything that he can. He will not do a peaceful transition here. Some are even wanting to declare an all out war. Trump Jr. is one of them and he looks like a confused man about to cry who is in need of rehab.
Imagine all that may go on between now and January 20th. America could become hell on Earth and we are told about the dangers of the "radical left." Looks the other way around to me, and frankly I am scared! Finally the media has come out in refuting Trump and this even includes Fox News.
Cautiously Optimistic is how I am feeling at the moment. I don't trust that lying psychopath as far as I can shoot him out of a cannon, although I would like to try it at least once just to see how far that really is. The country is deeply divided, look how close the popular vote is, there is a pandemic that is out of control, an economy in tatters and the potential for a war with China over Taiwan or with Russia over the Crimea.
I am delighted that the craven narcissistic nincompoop has been given the bloody bruising to his overblown ego that he so richly deserves. He has caused immense damage to American society, and it will take years if not decades to fully recover.
I look forward to Biden's and Harris's leadership.
Knowing that there's a long way to go and that there will be massive roadblocks to overcome....and that 45 will attempt a coup. It remains to be seen how much help he gets and if the hundreds of judges that he helped assign support him in it. I see it as a beginning step.
On this side of the pond, we are looking forward to some Trump-free news. I have often stopped watching because of his continuous bs. It was interesting to see how the press has already changed their attitude to him. Major networks cut him off and one journalist called out "Are you a sore loser?" It seems a bit like someone leaving an abusive relationship and has their own new place to live. Basically, they had to put up with his crap before but now they can walk away and leave him shouting obscenities at the door.
