Marco Rubio should now be regretting saying these words before the 'Presidential Election in 2016'. He quoted saying this in his own words, "We cannot afford to elect Hillary Clinton, because America cannot afford another four years like last eight". He was obviously referring to Obama. He...Jump to post
I feel Twitter and other Social Media Platforms should have banned Trump's account couple of years ago itself. Because by that time most of his 'Loyal Followers' had already believed in most of his lies. That meant they were never going to give up on him even if he was wrong. So, I feel Twitter and ...Jump to post
To me, 2020 has been the worst year for many reasons apart from the obvious 'The Pandemic'. The main reason for 2020 as the 'Worst Year Ever' is due to the 'Democracy Dying In Hong Kong'. The international community were 'Pre-Occupied' in handling the pandemic that they failed to take the Chinese Au...Jump to post
It seems like there is no end to Trump and Republicans's 'Disinformation Tactics' in not acknowledging the fact that 'Biden Won This Election' fairly.
And it does seem 'Shocking' to me that many of the 73 million Trump voters are also believing in this 'Stole The Vote Theory'.
He just doesn't look look his normal cocksure self and he certainly does not look happy... https://a57.foxnews.com/static.foxnews.com/foxnews.com/content/uploads/2020/11/1862/1048/AP20312738349095-e1604782035186.jpg https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-accuses-president-elect-biden-of-rushing-to-...Jump to post
It would have been better had Democrats won 'Senate' as well. With Republicans holding this 'Branch Of Government', Biden will not be able to pass crucial bills of 'Urgent Requirement' like Economic Stimulus Bill, Gun Laws, Medical Policies and many others. Looking at the Obama era where Mitch McCon...Jump to post

Thank you all for your response to my question. From all the points that I have read so far, I feel it is similar to that of a 'Parliamentary System Of Government' that we come across in other democracies in Europe, Asia and other countries. Because in the US system as well, they are electing new me...Jump to post
Pure personal opinion and I could be wrong. - and of course contingent of Biden winning the Electoral College Vote I think Trump leaves the White House peacefully either Jan 19 or early Jan 20. He does not allow his White House staff or other appointees to assist in the transition. It is traditiona...Jump to post
Does anyone know when would Georgia officially call the winner? And when would the Nevadans leave the casinos and finish the counting stuff? In Georgia, there is 1% of the 'Outstanding Vote' left and in Nevada, 11% more of the counting remaining to decide on the winner. This is the latest CNN update.Jump to post
Ah - so slow, accurate counting is unfair now? Hot take. It was always known that Nevada would have to count mail in ballots post marked on or before the 3rd but received on the 4th or later. Don’t you live in Nevada? Were you unaware? Very slow. You can't update at the day goes? Sounds fishy to me...Jump to post
One more observation about the outcome of this election, there is still not going to be any 'Absolute Joy' if Biden becomes next US President. Why? Because it seems the Senate is going to again be ruled by the Republicans. Also, the race is tight in the House Of Representatives as well. So I fear it...Jump to post
It has been over 12 hrs and still the 'Scoreline' remains 227-213 in favour of Biden with counting going on in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan and Georgia. Prior to this election, we all saw Trump not willing to accept his failure in handling the 'Pandemic' and also some of the prominent Republicans...Jump to post

Hi all, Only two days to go before the results will be known in this most important ever US Presidential Election in history. It will be interesting to know whether the current polls that are indicating the favor towards Biden will hold true. Having witnessed keenly the results of the 2016 President...Jump to post
Does this 'Special Treatment Meeted Out To Rittenhouse' by the police officers the other day at Kenosha protest, finally convince you all that there is a 'Systemic Racism' in the 'Police Forces' across the entire United States?Jump to post
The protesters in Portland represent the extreme fringe of the left in the United States....they are anarchists and communists and their demands will never be met. Indeed, polls have shown that 80% of black Americans want more police in their neighborhoods, and "defunding" the police is a...Jump to post
Until and unless, there is a 'Tangible Police Reform Policy' without 'Defunding' them comes into practice at the Federal level, protesters are not going back home.

Having heard Trump's speech at the RNC convention last night, I'm wondering if all the 'Undecided Voters' will once again believe in Trump's words and vote for him instead of Biden this November. Trump clearly presented a negative impression about these protesters last night and said he will be even...Jump to post
Maybe now all the '2nd Amendment Lovers' will be ready to 'Give Up Their Gun Rights'. So that a police officer will not 'Assume' that a person being questioned, irrespective of the skin color, has a gun. So that the police officer won't be taking away someone's life in the name of 'Self-Defense'. I ...Jump to post
I don't know if it is discussed earlier. Do any of you feel Justin Amash's entry into the November Election Battle as an 'Independant' will help Biden win over Trump?
Amash's entry would cut down the vote share of Trump from the 'Conservative Voters Base'.
How many of you feel that way?
I'm interested in buying this book. How many of you are going to buy Bolton's book?Jump to post

I see a 'Window Of Opportunity' for India to form a 'Coailation Force', comprising of the US, Canada, EU, Britain, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, and ASEAN to combat the 'Threat Posed By China'.

I think Dems basing this on defunding Planned Parenthood as a payback, both are bad ideas. What cops need is more funding for better training. Deputizing a High School QB with the cheapest two-week training in MMA, weaponize and throw in qualified immunity, recipe for disaster. Cops handling arrest...Jump to post
I feel the call for 'Defund The Police' is a bad idea on the part of the protesters. Absolutely, they need 'Law And Enforcement' people to keep them secured. What these people should demand is the way police officers handle these situations. They can ask the 'Congressmen And Senators' to pass a bill...Jump to post
https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/05/us/buffalo-police-suspension-shoving-man-trnd/index.html I feel police are under the impression that they are 'Above The Law'. That needs to change immediately.

Will 'Self Defense' reason once again 'Bail Out' these police officers from getting 'Convicted'?

We don't have to choose between anarchy and a police state. Bingo!
