    I'm definitely tired from all of this winning.

    In Trump’s defense , he could’ve only helped this so much.

    There are still plenty of bargain hunters and investors out there convinced Trump will approve whatever short-sighted move possible to push the market back up at least thru November. Don't be surprised if you see somewhat of a bounce back tomorrow.

    Of course all of these manunevers will have diminishing returns - they're pretty much just shuffling the chairs around on the deck of the Titanic. It's only a matter of time.

    I don’t understand. Wasn’t he single handedly responsible for the stock market increases in the past 3 years?

    Look at South Korea. If we got ahead of the curve instead of head-in-sand, we could have saved many lives.

    South Korea Coronavirus count
    8,400 at 54 million people. So that's .01% of the population sick.

    America Coronavirus count 6223 at 330 million. So that's .001% of the population sick.

    Per capita US is doing well above average.

    So Biden is going to beat Bernie in Florida by more than 30 points.

    Honestly I don't know if I'll even to vote from overseas. But if I do and it's Trump and Biden. I think I'll vote 3rd party.

    Long term getting a viable 3rd or more party is better for America than who is president for 4 years. Trump sucks and is easily the worst president of my life but America will be fine.

    Let's stop being forced into choosing between 2 people that most of us don't like. We can do better than that. Stop letting the parties convince you it's only 2 options. A third option didn't need to win to make a big difference.

    I agree with this once Trump is gone. But not until

    That's fair enough. But I think this could be one of the few times it's possible. It won't be possible if there are 2 decent candidates. It could be one of the more positive things Trump does if it happened. Hell, it's possible if people didn't give into the two party idea to even elect a 3rd party candidate over both if people are fed up enough.

    our system of government isn’t set up to support multiple parties like a parliamentary system. We’ll never have a viable 3rd party option until significant changes are made to the constitution.

    That’s why even by our second and third president, we were already limited to two main parties.

    I disagree. It would take a party getting traction and a lot could easily change. Especially if people demand it and stop giving in to thinking we only have to choices. The easiest solution is to add run off voting.

    Also we've had viable third parties after the time you have stated. So that is factually incorrect.

    I don't know why Bernie supporters have been so negative but I also don't see anything to gain by mocking them.

    Biden was my second to last choice after Bloomberg. I'm not happy that he's going to be the nominee.

    I’m not mocking them. I’m mocking their arguments. There’s a difference.

    Sanders clearly isn’t electable and clearly the youth tidal wave isn’t happening.
