Texas GOP ousts chairman, picks tea party firebrand Allen West to lead in 2020 elections

Oh My God, as if Trump wasn't having enough of a miserable time GOP Texas decides to get rid of its chairman and replace him with Tea Party nutbag Allen West. It's bad when Texas decides to use Florida's leftover.

Didnt get the traction he needed and ended up falling behind Biden by a large margin. In the end he ended up endorsing him as the democratic candidate.

Bernie was supposed to win the primaries and the nomination, then all the other Democrats started to withdraw from the race and praise and support Biden who they strongly criticized, playing politics, the DNC did it to Bernie again.

Thermodolia wrote:Just because you think Trump is bad doesn’t mean that he’s the worst thing for everyone. When he was matched up against Clinton more people would rather vote for him than Clinton because nobody wants her.


Finally, you've actually written something correct about me: I do think Trump is bad. The Evidence shows in the lack of civility that posters show to each other.

I'm sure you thought I would respond to your flamebaiting profanity with a similar lack of respect and decorum. Sorry, but not all of us are willing to let this thread degenerate into personal attacks about nonsense. Leave the reality show antics to The Donald.

Something tells me that Jo Jorgensen (L) finishes well ahead of Kanye come November.

I wouldn’t demean college dropouts as quite a few have been pretty successful like Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs and others have been presidents like Truman.


The College Dropout is a reference to Kanye West's 2004 album.
Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Harry S. Truman weren't guest rappers on that album and, to my knowledge, had nothing to do with it.
Nice try, though!

EDITED

While the assumption can be implied, it was never explicitly made.

To make such an assumption would be intellectually inconsistent.

In the age of Trump, we shouldn't just engage in Alternative Facts just because they make us feel good. To do this would actually put us on the wrong side in Donald Trump's War on Truth.

EDITED: I had originally assumed that Jill Stein's vote total exceeded Trump's margin of victory in MI, PA & WI. While I never explicitly assumed that Hillary was the second choice of Stein voters, I now know that even if they did, Trump would have still won two of those states.

This is the thing about seeking truth: You learn something every day. You learn not to make the sort of blanket assumptions that treat groups of people as if they're chess pieces to be manipulated.

This actually is one of their longer lists: they usually narrow it up to 38. But I swear, the lies, misrepresentation, and deceitfulness is growing...
