They've not only got shot of a nutjob figurehead, it looks as if they've hung on to the senate and increased their share of the minority vote into the bargain.
again, i disagree.
increasing their share of the minority vote in the house does not give em a majority.
the senate *is* a problem, but that majority isn't a sure thing just yet. even if it were, i really don't get this uber cynicism here.
it seems some of y'all think that the massive problems in this country, the republican evil, the racist rabid fucquers, the voter suppression, all of this crap that has been goin on for decades and decades... y'all act as though those problems just magically manifested under trump and that one election was gonna make it all magically go "*poof*.
it's clear i won't convince y'all otherwise, so go on thinking that biden and harris winning this election doesn't matter bigly. i'm glad y'all aren't running anything over here, mwhahaha.
i mean, never mind that biden is gonna win with the highest vote count of any dem candidate in american history. with the electoral vote, he'll probably win with, oh, maybe 300. and we'll have harris as VP. this record-breaking stuff is just meaningless, then, cuz that republican evil hasn't been swoooop, wiped off the face of the earth? it's all hell in a handbasket for america. bullcrap. it most definitely would've been if trump stayed in power.
just now, biden pulled ahead in georgia. georgia. do you know why he might win it in georgia? becuz of people like stacey abrams. she has been fighting and energizing voters like crazy for years, in one of the most suppressed states in america. people in georgia stood in line for 12 hours to be able to vote in this election. (there will likely be two senate runoff races in georgia as well.) abrams was cheated out of winning her election, but instead of giving it up and writing it all off, it just energized her more. and guess what... it matters. it matters even if biden doesn't pull georgia out this time.
i won't go so far as to say some of y'all may suffer from short attention span theatre, mwhaha, but what is happening in america is a very long-standing war. the demographics in america are changing, hugely. the republican/magat menace is gonna continue to become more of a minority. that is a fact. their crazed attempts at more cheating to keep power will not hold.
as for this election, to look at it as some kinda disastrous loss is, well, ridiculous to me. it is huge. it is more than just a moral victory. it is absolutely essential.
