Trumpers hate Joe Biden with a passion.

Probably equal to the passion that many Democrats hate Donald Trump.

It's a sign of the times, I suppose?

The nation is divided and politics seems to generate more hatred than is normal.

If Joe Biden cannot unite this country, I don't know that anyone can. He has always had the reputation as one of the most "bi-partisan" Senators in Washington. Still, they hate him.

Joe will probably think long about whether or not he will run for re-election? Is it worth it? In the end, I think Joe will do what he thinks is best for the country.

I believe he will win if he runs again. But what will he win?

How much should be spent on infrastructure and general welfare as compared to defense spending?

Democrats are wanting to spend $3.5 trillion on infrastructure and general welfare for people programs and Republicans are screaming about the price tag. Even some Democrats have fallen into their narrative.

Democrats want to raise corporate taxes and close loopholes to pay for the majority of the spending on these "people programs" but Republicans never want to raise taxes, only cut them. They never see a need for spending that might help the general population.

At present, we are spending just over $700 billion per year on defense programs. Over a ten-year period, that amounts to over $7 Trillion dollars - double the present request for the Biden Program to Build Back this country.

It's all a matter of priorities, not money.

Some politicians do not care about the people's needs.

Has anyone watched the latest videos from Mars on You Tube, attributed to NASA...?

..but some of them look like they have been photoshopped?

They are very interesting but it is difficult to distinguish the real ones from the fake, since they have the same terrain but some have added things like a snake, a hole in the ground, a piece of rope, UFO's in the distant sky, etc.

They are very interesting regardless. Very thought-provoking.

Joe Biden stole the "audit" from Trump in Arizona.

Everybody knows Trump won Arizona....just ask him.

The "audit" was a fraud. It was rigged. Joe Biden didn't win.

The Cyber Ninjas were a set-up. They stabbed Trump in the back. They were supposed to announce a huge victory for Donald Trump. Instead, they announce that Joe Biden got even more votes than he did in the General Election.

But, not to fear, they will keep the scam going. Arizona may have been a fraud, but they will find evidence in Texas that the Democrats did not get the votes they claimed. If that doesn't work, they will go to Georgia. If Georgia does not go the way they want, they will go to Wisconsin or Pennsylvania. The bottom line is that they have to keep the "Big Lie" alive.

"The election was stolen".

You know that, right?

When democracy is gone, will you miss it?

Many people do not trust elections, and democracy is under dire threat.

Democracy is a very fragile system of governing to begin with. Nowhere is it written in stone that democracy will last forever. What will change in our lives when democracy is gone?

The "free market" system will no longer be "free". Products will become more scarce. Bribery and corruption will rule the marketplace.

"Free speech" will not be the same. There will need to be a seal of approval before some words are spoken or images are shown. An authoritarian government would put a clamp on free speech.

With modern technology, your freedom of movement could be greatly hindered. You could be stopped and questioned at any time.

Is this really what people want? Or do they think it could never happen?

How precarious is American democracy at this time?

Are we in a better position than we were on January 6th?

Or worse?

The assault upon our democracy did not stop on January 7th.

It continues today.
