    Like I said before... let them implode. They don't deserve better!
    Don't forget that your State is getting slowly invaded by Liberals, who could become a majority in the near future. What do you say to that?

    The Wallets of Wall Street Are With Biden, if Not the Hearts

    The New York TimesAugust 10, 2020
    NEW YORK — As Wall Street donors arrived at a fundraiser for Joe Biden at a midtown Manhattan restaurant earlier this year, campaign staff members asked if they wanted to sign up for pictures with the candidate. More than a few of the bankers and private-equity investors politely declined, opting to mingle over glasses of wine instead.

    It was Feb. 13, and Biden had just been thrashed in the New Hampshire primary after finishing poorly in the Iowa caucuses a week earlier. He was in desperate need of both momentum and money. Still, as Biden confided to the private-equity executive who co-hosted the event that night: Win or lose, he planned to “play my heart out to the very end,” the executive, Jon Gray, later recalled.

    And finance executives have played a critical role in helping him do it. As Biden survived a turbulent winter to become the presumptive Democratic nominee running against President Donald Trump, the millions of dollars Wall Street denizens donated to Biden and outside groups supporting his candidacy have helped him build a strong lead in national polls.

    Wall Street has fared extraordinarily well under Trump: deep cuts to taxes, slashed regulations and, until the pandemic hit, record stock prices. But in recent months, dozens of bankers, traders and investors said in interviews, a sense of outrage and exhaustion over Trump’s chaotic style of governance — accelerated by his poor coronavirus response — had markedly shifted the economic and political calculus in their industry.

    More and more finance professionals, they say, appear to be sidelining their concerns about Biden’s age — 77 — and his style. They are surprisingly unperturbed at the likelihood of his raising their taxes and stiffening oversight of their industry. In return, they welcome the more seasoned and methodical presidency they believe he could bring.

    They may not exactly be falling in love with Biden. But they are falling in line.

    “I’ve seen meaningful numbers of people put aside what would appear to be their short-term economic interest because they value being citizens in a democracy,” said Seth Klarman, founder of the hedge fund Baupost.

    A longtime independent, Klarman was at one point New England’s biggest giver to the Republican Party. But in this cycle, he has given $3 million to groups supporting Biden.

    Or as James Attwood, a managing director at the Carlyle Group and a former investment banker at Goldman Sachs, put it, “For people who are in the business of hiring and firing CEOs, Donald Trump should have been fired a while ago.” (Attwood contributed $200,000 in June to the Biden Action Fund, a joint committee with the Democratic National Committee.)

    Sorry Trump supporters, the Tide has turned. Powerful people want Trump out.

    Funny that in all the focus on a female VP, they never even considered Tulsi Gabbard. Shows that they have no intention of uniting the country.

    Been seeing this for a while. Americans need to face another disaster before they will even begin to grow up. I am not wishing it on people, but the are bringing it on themselves. But something needs to wake them up out of their silliness.

    And you say that like it's a good thing.

    we are very very very very aware of the liberals here in my state, so much so that we are talking about it regularly, Texas has voted Republican in every election since 1980 , we are Red state despite what the recent polls might show, we aren’t even near gray as they suggest.

    there is a lot of talk going on through out the state because the straight up liberals that live here today are the same liberals that voted in policy’s and laws into their previous state that fucked it so bad, so we are discussing quite a few things here, we are not happy with these people at all and they know it.

    “Fallen in line” eh? That is that dictator within you speaking there.

    we have plenty of powerful people to back us, we don’t want mafias and shit to back us like your party has.

    You really think Jamie Dimon's interests are your interests? Or even the nation's interests? Sorry for you if that's true.

    the race card they are playing is going to come back and bite them in the ass, if we only get a small percentage that crosses lines , and we will, that in itself is a victory.


    They don’t care how they get it, beg, borrow or steal. They will go any route to get it besides winning it straight out because they know they can’t win it that way

    Do you think that Trump cares one bit about the nations or your interest? :xf.laugh::ROFL::xf.laugh::ROFL:
    He doesn't give a crap about any of us.

    Exactly, Fuck Them . After they lose Nov 3 , they will understand that they are finished as a party, we are going to finish them and get rid of there gut rot before 2024.

    they took us for granted as chumps in 2016, they know better to in 2020 so they are throwing the book and it’s cover at us this election, they are very scared of this loss because they know this is the end of the road for them, they have exposed themselves completely, now it’s time to put them away once and for all

    You guys just don't know how to recognize the sentiment of the country.

    The high majority of the country are against Trump.
    Yes he still has his base, btw what is his base down to now? 28%? 29%?

    The sentiment is growing against Trump everyday.
    The majority of the country is either just sick and tired of the man and all of his crap, his lies, his stupidity, his ignorance, his failure on the virus. Most just don't like him or they just flat out hate the guy.

    Trump doesn't have a chance in Nov.

    Crime and gun sales are through the roof. Democrats, media not talking about either.

    Trump is going to win a landslide. R's could take a majority in the house.

    People are afraid of the ( democrat ) mobs. People living in blue areas are afraid to fly the US flag, let alone admit they'd vote for Trump.
    --

    Woke idiots trying to out do each other with fantastical demands. Poor neighborhoods want more police. School choice. Jobs. Not murder, riots and looting.

    the sentiment of the country is no different than 2016 except now we are actually pissed off because your party has completely exposed itself and now unlike 2016, we want to unseat your party completely, forever . That is the sentiment of the country

    You can riot, loot, go to the beach, have a massage, visit a gay bath house, go to a bar, go to a casino but you can't worship inside a church or gather at home for prayer meetings.

    If you think people don't notice the hypocrisy, you might be a democrat.
