Justice Stormy.... it has a certain ring to it.

Plus, no more hush money! Win-Win.

Amy Coney Barrett it will be. She's 48 years old and will be telling us which rights we no longer get to enjoy for about two generations while she simultaneously does everything possible to protect the wealthy and powerful. She may even get a chance to invalidate Biden's election and contribute to the further destruction of democracy.

No doubt she will be a hero to Lefties and Moderates who contributed, in their various ways, to Trump's win in 2016. Enjoy!

Isn't Amy Coney the one who ran a brothel when she was in high school?

Dear @SenFeinstein After much soul-searching by my attorney/priest, I've concluded that I did not use Amy Coney Barrett's high school sex-for-hire services, but I did help kill Antonin Scalia and put his doppelganger on the Supreme Court. No harm, no foul. Cancel the attorney.

Correction. An earlier report said Amy Coney Barret operated her brothel only from her 3rd year French class. She may have operated a sex-for-hire business only from her Trigonometry class. We regret the error.

Of course personal responsibility can be somewhat mitigated by the perversity of our electoral college system. But, nah, the ones who decided to vote for someone other than Hillary and eligible voters who didn't bother to vote at all are also responsible for Trump's victory.

It was a binary choice, Hillary or Trump. Those individuals who didn't make the minimal effort necessary to vote helped Trump win.

Poor judgment by voting for those who didn't stand a chance of defeating Trump, laziness, or apathy don't shield those individuals from responsibility for helping elect an absolute incompetent to become our president, or for the horrific judicial appointments that are the inevitable result.

Oh sweet! I miss these stupid assumptions that everyone owed Hillary a vote and nothing was her responsibility or fault.

Too bad the DNC, which cooked the primary results, decided to ignore the popularity of Bernie and run with their preselected candidate, "It's my turn!" Hillary Clinton.

I wonder if, seeing the result of Trump's presidency, the DNC would still have selected Hillary over Bernie in 2016.

As far as Biden. (Again, selected by the DNC) He better hope enough Americans are tired of Trump and all his bullshht, to win.

Because, I fear we're going to see 2004 all over again. BushJr should have been easy defeated. But Kerry was weak. Just like Biden is.

No, every potential voter of good conscience, morality, or ethics towards themselves and their country owed a vote to the United States to defeat Trump.

If it were Romney against Trump, I would have voted for Romney. If it were Pence against Trump, I would have voted for Pence. If it were Cruz against Trump, I would have voted for Cruz.

Trump is the absolute worst person to hold the presidency in living memory and you'd be hard pressed to find someone, short of actual NAZIs or Klan members, less suited to that office and its responsibilities.

As far as Bernie, don't ask yourself whether a man who couldn't win the majority in a two-man showdown in the more liberal Democratic primaries would have won the general election.

As I said though, enjoy the federal judiciary fruits of your labors by tearing down the only person who could have stopped Trump from becoming president in the 2016 general election. Biden has the same power in the 2020 election, with worse results to follow his loss. Those who vote third party, vote Trump or sit out the upcoming election will be responsible for those results as well. Just as for Hillary, doesn't matter how much they try to duck responsibility by attacking Biden as an imperfect candidate.

Hillary sucked, and I would have voted for her had I lived in a purple state.

Yea. Too bad Bernie never got the opportunity to stop Trump.

Those pesky "superdelegates" couldn't see how much America hated Hillary.

Then Hillary failed. Miserably. She literally gave us Trump.

I'm loving the 2016 nostalgia you decided to channel.

America: "We want Bernie!"

DNC Superdelegates: "You're getting Hillary!"

Hillary: "It's everyone else's fault I lost!"

Good times.

By the way. Dumbfffk. Hillary won the popular vote and California (the state I live in). If you think there was something more that I could have done for her. I'm all ears. Otherwise. Keep crying about 2016. It's sure to be productive.

Regarding voting for Hillary in a Blue or Red state, as I said earlier, "Of course personal responsibility can be somewhat mitigated by the perversity of our electoral college system. #7 censored"

Not crying about 2016. Just pointing out how responsibility for Trump's 2016 win and his possible 2020 win, with its concomitant results, are shared by many who don't consider themselves to be part of the Trump Cult.

As I watch the left attack itself year after year, a couple sayings keep coming to mind. "Democrats fall in love, Republicans fall in line." Will Rogers said something along the same lines when he stated, "I'm not a member of an organized political party, I'm a Democrat."

Republicans come together when push comes to shove decade after decade and they have much to show for it. Dems, not so much. My initial post was made in the hope that the left and reasonable moderates will someday stop being played for fools by the right which exploits the left's internal disagreements.

The right will do whatever it takes to win. The GOP spent decades with a single-minded focus to warp the judiciary and our laws to suit the desires of the wealthy and powerful. It will take similar determination and focus by sane and compassionate Americans to right those wrongs.

Oh I see. Still everyone's fault but Hillary.

Is that how you live your life? Nothing is your responsibility. Always someone else to blame?

Keep crying about 2016.

I'll be here for you if Biden loses.

That can be everyone else's fault too.

The left and moderate Americans want different things.

The problem is your expectations of the left to submit to the desires of moderate America.

This will always be an issue the Democratic Party is faced with. Because this nation is locked into a two party system.

The left in this nation want basic needs such as health care and education to be covered by our taxes. We want to stop subsidizing the rich.

The moderates in this nation have some romantic notion of going back to the Clinton years of America.

The right in this nation want America to become a theocracy and turn civil rights back to the early 1800s where only Wealthy white Christian men had control of the nation.

The difference is. While the Democratic Party was thinking nationally and seeing all 50 states as one nation.

The Republican parry was going into individual states and influencing politics at a local level. Destroying education. Spreading fear and hate.

While the Republicans don't have influence over the majority of Americans. The minority they control are rabid and ready to die for the Party.

Democrats not so much. We're not a cult. We're a collective.

That's not what I said there at all.

You also seem to keep ignoring my point that it was a binary choice. To put it into an Obamism, "[l]etting the perfect be the enemy of the [less than adequate Hillary and allowing blithering idiot Trump to win instead]."

Yes, moderates want different policies than the left, but neither want the U.S. to become a theocracy, rescind gay marriage and rights, send women back into the kitchen, make corporations into people, destroy the Postal Service, allow the rich to steal more wealth from workers, sabotage the census, and destroy our right to vote. That's what we're going to get though, because many reasonable moderates and progressives continue to think "United We Stand" is just a nifty saying that has no bearing on coming together to prevent the right from destroying our democracy and accomplish what we can find majority support for in a nation of 330 million individuals.

@ censored
Had those who voted for candidate Clinton chosen instead to vote for Gary Johnson, we wouldn't be in this mess. They are no more and no less responsible than those who voted for Stein or Johnson.

This argument is foolish, 2016 was stolen by Republicans suppressing the vote. They disenfranchised more voters in Pennsylvania than Trump won by.
