Like a monster in its death throes... the synapses are firing, the body is flailing without a conscious purpose... the cortex is limited to its basic subconscious and instinctive will to survive and escape danger. The monster struggles violently and in great pain... but it doesn't realize that it's already dead. The fight is over --- except for watching it twist, contort and writhe in physical and emotional agony.

That's been going on in all corners of the Internet. Many FUD spreaders.

Many hand-wringers. Many "predicting" (promoting?) their doomsday scenarios. Many expressing regret, doubts, fears... and I have to tell you, those types of posts go far beyond the mere act of "seeking comfort" among like-minded individuals. They, instead, are doing little more than fear-mongering and trying to DE-motivate people. I even see it here from time to time.

All I'm trying to say is that we should be on the lookout for it. Call it out when you see it. Don't let it get to you and pour cold water on it so that their toxic way of thinking doesn't spread to others.

It serves NO useful purpose at all. It's just another example of how people are oddly willing to do and say things that create an atmosphere of fear and hopelessness and negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.



Lindsey's delicate and soft-spoken Southern Gentleman mannerisms won't help him now.

Bye, Lindsey!

Nobody is doing that.

And here it goes... cue the anti-Bernie rants
Nobody is doing that. But I can tell you that what we're hearing from that camp is clearly anti-Biden and a backhanded effort to subvert the Biden campaign. ONLY the winner gets to make decisions on how to run the campaign and who to include.

Predictable outrage to ensue.
It's not as though he deserves praise for trying to create division, suspicion, distrust and resentment.

What useful purpose does it serve? His "advice" was unsolicited and inappropriate. Biden's campaign and the party had ALREADY given the Sanders campaign every reasonable consideration and accommodation. Negotiations and compromises were made in good faith. Bernie already participated. That part is OVER now. OVER! Biden doesn't need any former rivals "advising" him how to run his campaign.

The campaign is over. Our party has chosen our nominee.

This type of backhanded and back-channel "leaked" critique serves no good purpose. It's just something that creates resentment and distrust. It's pulling scabs off of old wounds and pouring salt in. It's a source of negativity. Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Surely people have better and more productive things to do with his time than to take cheap shots at Biden from the sidelines. The GOP is already doing enough of that. Why add to it?

That last sentence nails it perfectly.

He's definitely disgruntled and he's got a chip on his shoulder. He's the Nader-lover who said that there's no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. That's also a mantra often heard from his cult-like devoted fans as well as his favorite politician. In the end, Michael Moore is a grifter. When he's wrong, it's forgotten and never mentioned again. When he right, he's hailed by his cult as being some sort of political genius. Fact is this: He's NO political genius. He's just a cynic who parades around as though he's wiser than the rest of us.

Thank you! Why do so many not understand what that word means? Or...

The base of a party consists of those voters it can count on without reservation. Voters who do not say they have to be tickled just right to do the right thing. People who come out and support the party's candidates, come rain or shine.
Thank you! Why do so many not understand what that word means? Or, perhaps a better question would be "why do so many intentionally misuse that word?" The word "base" is not a synonym for "the furthest left of the left" and it's not a synonym for "purer than thou".

Oh well, all we can do is keep trying to teach them.

I sincerely welcome the help being offered and given by our Republican allies.

When it comes right down to it, I am able to look at things realistically and rationally by remembering that we're not MARRYING them for Pete's sake. They aren't "Trojan Horses". We're not re-writing our platform to suit them. They aren't taking over our party.

We're simply accepting their help... and we need all the help we can get. All of this handwringing and overwrought emotion and anger serves no useful purpose. Second-guessing and denigrating our nominee and party only creates distrust, suspicion and negativity. Threats of retaliation, or to withhold contributions (or votes), or promises to change party affiliations do not help either.

Those types of threats and smears only serve to create an atmosphere of negativity: Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Many Republicans (and others) will continue to speak out against Trump (and for Biden) from now until election day, so everyone needs to get used to it. They're here to help and they're here to stay.

All I'm trying to say is this... I hope that the angry people can find a way to just let-go and TRUST JOE! We need to put our nation first and not indulge our vanity and pride. We can't afford that luxury. Joe knows what he's doing. Our party leaders know what's needed right now... so get out of the way and let them get on with doing what needs to be done.

Thank you! The Biden/Harris 2020 Train is about to leave the station... GET ON BOARD!!



C'MON! GET IN! We're taking back America!







Joe/Kamala or Biden/Harris 2020!!
They're stronger together & can't be bought!!
Jump on the Biden Bandwagon & abandon the revolution!!





Exactly! Thank you! I welcome our new Republican allies!



I swear to God, I've never see so much sanctimonious hand-wringing and worry over absolutely NOTHING. I'm sick of all the whining. We're not MARRYING them for Pete's sake. We're accepting their help... and we need all the help we can get.

People just need to let-go and TRUST JOE! He knows what he's doing. Our party leaders know what's needed right now.
