I got very high and looked into the future

Here is what it told me about the election


Biden picks Harris as VP, they win by 7.6 points, and Biden gets 368 electoral votes. The Senate ends up tied.

Or I might just be super high

Will the next incarnation of the Republican Party be led by incumbent Democrats who were booted out

The Republican party, as it is known today under Trump isn't long for this world and it's currently philosophy will likely die a swift death after this year. So when the current old guard in the Republican party disappears over the next decade and the hardcore conservatives among the boomers begin really getting up there in age, I think the moderate blue dog democrats who are getting booted in primaries by "democratic socialists" and people far to the left will move to take over the GOP.

In 5-10 years, current Republicans will be gone, the moderate and conservative Dems will become Republicans, and the democrats will have a Bernie Sanders style philosophy.

April 24th: Biden warns Trump will try to delay election, Trump calls Biden "conspriacy theorist"

April 24, 2020:

Joe Biden: “Mark my words, I think he is going to try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can’t be held,” Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, said on Thursday night in remarks at an online fundraiser.

Trump campaign: “Those are the incoherent, conspiracy theory ramblings of a lost candidate who is out of touch with reality."


I made a "morality alignment" chart for 2020 American politics

Following up from my post yesterday on the Buzzfeed quiz on people's "morality alignment", I decided to try to make a chart for 2020 American politics. Thoughts?


What is your morality alignment?

It's a boring day, it's hot and raining right now, so Buzzfeed quizzes it is for me today. This one is the most interesting one I found so far, a good old fashioned moral alignment system test. Where do you fall? Mine is neutral good, so....thats fun I guess.


Here is a little chart that seems to give good comparisons from pop culture on what each one means, in case you're unfamiliar.


McConnell has warned Trump that they will abandon him if he doesn't turn things around by Labor Day

This isn't a very new story. A few weeks ago there was an article on Vanity Fair that McConnell had warned Trump that if he can't turn things around by Labor Day that the Republicans are going to basically cut off Trump and leave him to his fate, in order to try to save the senate. Obviously in the time Trump's position has become worse, not better so it isn't looking good. However, to put into prospective how little time Trump has, if McConnell's ultimatum is true, we are only 6 weeks away from the point of no return between Trump and the Republicans. Do you know what happened 6 weeks ago already?



The time between that crime against humanity and today is how much time Trump has left to turn things around. That not a lot....

Edit: Here the article BTW


Do the attacks on Biden's health seem familiar?

I remembered that the Republicans made Hillary Clinton's health a major issue in 2016, after hearing endlessly about "dementia!". So I decided to do some digging and ended up in quite the rabbit hole. Here is a link of 18 different right wing headlines about Hillary's wide ranging, deadly diseases from 2015-2016.


This may prove to be a very unpopular opinion but I think its the Dem's best option

I was reading an article today showing that Biden and Warren are both building strong coalitions within the Democratic Party. Biden solidly has voters that are moderate, older, as well as large amounts of support among minorities and those in the midwest/rust belt areas. Warren is doing extremely well among younger Democrats, liberals, and those with a college education. Essentially the two major wings of the Democratic Party.

Polls still show, on average, that Biden holds a decent lead and while it is early, does extremely well against Trump. I say that if Biden is the nominee, which from where I'm standing looks like the likely outcome (I know its not guaranteed but if he is the nominee), then the Democrats run a Biden/Warren ticket in 2020. I think would unite the Democrats, Trump would be swept from office, and we achieve probably the biggest goal of our time.

I would say then Biden serves for 1 term (despite what some people say I think he is still in great shape but I don't know about him serving until he is in his mid 80's) and then the Dems run Warren in 2024. Biden does one last great thing for the country by chasing Trump out of the white house, he gets his place in history which he has definitely earned, he spends the rest of his life as the elder statesman for the country, and then Warren leads the country into the future.

Again, I'm sure most people will stick their noses up at the idea of Warren not being the nominee in 2020 or Biden not serving two terms, depending on which side you are on but I think long term that would be the perfect scenario for the Democrats and this country.

Did Trump have a stroke?

Look at this pic of his face from today. He doesn't look well
