    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    I'm not the only one being banned. I found out the last one (Dec 2017) was due to re-tweeting POTUS's tweets, and yes, they did think I was a bot. The Twitter CEO admits they lean left with their views, and I'd imagine their engine for determining appropriate or not. They also claim they don't censor, but I'm not buying that. I've not been nasty or threatening or even toxic in any of my replies. I've reached out to many political figures (Maxine, Nancy, our Va state reps, etc) and have gotten replies from some. I'll ask questions about their job, Maxine in particular, and ask how it can be productive to criticize POTUS every single waking moment and to please tell me how that's helping her constituents. That's just one example. She may have seen that line of questioning as being "threatening" but who knows. People can read anything they want into the typed message. I'm back on Twitter now and simply using it as a news source and not commenting to anybody. Over the last few years political correctness has gone a bit overboard.
  2. Who cares about that, what we really need to know is what the hell is on Hillary's teeth?!?!

    Re FB taking down posts they feel are not true to their values, however you want to phrase it, Twitter isn't any better. I've been banned and reinstated 3 times in the last 4 years. I've never been told exactly why I've been banned but I suspect its because of re-tweeting. The world would be a better place without all this social media.

    Election 2020 - The Presidental Race.

    If we just look at the 2016 election, and the campaigning leading up to it, we'd have seen "some" people commit crimes who weren't even charged. One still walks the earth right now totally oblivious to what was done. I know one thing, I admire Bernie for not calling "her" out and just taking it like a man. The problem is "the woman" is still in the public eye and running her mouth at every opportunity. Hillary too!! Of the Dems that are in the running now, who are you all most interested in? If Biden does decide to run will you vote for him over all the rest? Inquiring minds really want to know. I'm taking a serious look at them and haven't made up my mind yet (I'm pretending I'm a Democrat just for the purposes of this exercise).

    Nope, didn't realize he was under investigation before the election. What was it for? I know the college courses mess ended, but what else was he being investigated for? As long as he fulfills the majority of his promises I'll be ok with it. We have the justices in place, hopefully a 3rd soon, the economy is the best its been in years (my IRA will attest to that), and he's trying to get us into better positions with other countries. If I were a Democrat I'd be worried due to people like AOC and Omar. They're taking things to a new level we haven't seen before. I'm not sure Pelosi and Schumer know how to handle them yet. This was quite evident with the passing of the "hate" legislation last week. It should have named Omar specifically but they chickened out. Sad. I know, i have a real bad habit with that one... I see what you did there, hahahahaha!!!!

    I'm convinced Trump will be investigated every day for the rest of his life, irregardless of whether he wins re-election or not. If it's not the Russia thing, or the porn star thing, or his real estate dealing, his foundation, his tax's, they'll find something to investigate. I'm curious about your name, CousinsCowgirl. is it in relation to Kirk Cousins, which I'm pretty sure its not based on what I'm assuming you're a Cowboys fan????
  8. Hahahaha, I thought I had seen my name pop up in here. Jumbo gave me the green light to come back to the Tailgate but have been busy renovating 2 bathrooms in the house. I'm optimistic what will come of his talks with China leadership coming up, even though I saw where they're "wary of a quick deal from Trump". I haven't caught up with all the posts since I was here last, but did you all think the move to walk away from the Kim deal was a good move or were you all not happy that Trump gave him an audience a 2nd time?

    It's true, those are facts, but you're forgetting the point I made earlier that if we had had a popular vote election Trump (and the rest of the candidates) would have campaigned much differently. Had that been the case I'm sure Trump would have won the popular vote. That wasn't the case though, don't blame it on Trump supporters, it's the way it's setup now. I say forget the electoral college. I understand the meaning behind it, but people aren't going to accept any POTUS win if the results are like they were in 2016. This hybrid mess they're talking about now isn't the answer either. If we're going in with a 1/3 of the states voting hybrid, then just bring on a full popular vote. Very true as well, although I'm confident once the Mueller report is released we'll all see there was no collusion with Russia. I guess we'll see in a couple years which group decides to stay home. One thing I hope everybody has learned from the 2016 election is that "you cannot trust polls or any media outlet and you shouldn't let them influence your vote or decision to vote or not".

    That would pretty much be true, although I did manage to drag all my family and neighbors out to the polls in Nov. I lost count of how many trips i made that day.

    Hahaha, I just responded to 2 others explaining why, see above.

    Thanks, glad to be back. Jumbo and I had a chat about everything and we're cool now. I responded to somebody else about the silent majority wording a few mins ago. What I'm getting at is based on how the electoral college is setup now. A lot of the Trump supporters do not admit it to anybody, friends, family, and especially to somebody they don't know who's asking questions. As evidenced by the polls leading up to the election in 2016, they stayed hidden until the day of the actual election. In my original comment I should have said "the silent majority as it relates to the electoral college". Trump would have campaigned differently if we'd have used the popular vote to decide the President back in 2016 (and not the EC) and I believe he would have still won.

    Silent majority just means those that don't announce or proclaim they're for Trump and just sit back and only come out during the election. They may even go so far as to say they're for another person just to avoid the "perceived" criticism. They're also the majority because of the way the electoral college is setup with Trump states carrying the most votes. If they do change away from the electoral college it'll just mean the candidates will campaign differently. I've read about that hybrid deal, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and that could impact what happens in 2020. All I know is the polls in 2016 all showed Hillary winning and it looked good for her early on in the election, but then they came out. I'm not sure I can trust polls moving forward as long as Trump is involved in an election.

    If the majority of the Dem challengers continue with the socialist craziness Trump won't have a problem winning re-election. I haven't heard any answers by leadership, only veiled acknowledgement. I thought at one point Pelosi was going to address AOC re the Green New Deal but it didn't happen. It'll be interesting to see if any of the Dem candidates change their position as the months go on. 2016 proved that with most of the major networks and polling sites predicting Hillary would win. The silent majority is out there, watching and waiting.
  15. Lovely house, but it looks more purple than pink...
