    None of these Republicans deserve to be re-elected. Racism is such a problem embedded in our country. Going to bed early with some hope left.

    WTF is wrong with our country? We are a Joke! I live in California…. I’m ready to have our state leave the Union if this con man remains president. This should not be close! I do not have faith in my fellow Americans.

    I couldn’t handle the suspense of the election results last night, I stopped watching the tv after a while. Went to sleep relatively early too. Glad to see AZ is blue.

    Real shame about TX, I had hoped that it had flipped too.

      I was in a deliberate media blackout until about 12am. Been scrolling for updates since then. The fact that this race is so close is an indictment on this country. Always wanted to believe that we were progressing, that most of our citizens wanted compassion and equality and would do the right thing when their eyes were opened to injustice and inequality. I now know that this is not true and has never been true. Even if Biden wins and we get that majority in the senate, I will always believe that this country is irredeemable.

        I totally agree with your take lmcae72. It really is hard to believe what we are seeing.

    Seeing numbers like this makes me wonder how many people voted for the top spot and didn’t vote down the ballot. Or how many never tRumper Republicans voted for Biden and then voted for the Republican down ballot. Frustrating either way.

      My county, Duval, in NE Florida went hard for Biden who got over 18,000 more votes that the shit hole president. One bright spot in a dismal state.
      Hang with us today, we may yet pull this off for Joey, Kamala and ourselves.

  69. November 4, 2020 at 9:42 am

    I’m hanging on to hope that Joe will win and just as importantly that the rule of law and out constitutional democracy will hold and make him our 46th president. The prize remains removing the filth from The People’s House.

    HOWEVER – – This is all so surreal. After 4+ years going back to the last election, we’ve witnessed the non-stop spewing of lies, fear and hate from the illegitimate squatter in the Whitehouse. There has been gross disregard of our laws and norms and obscene self-enrichment. And of course, grotesque incompetence, racism and division that has caused out nation great harm. AND STILL 62 MILLION OF OUR FELLOW CITIZENS VOTED FOR HIM. Once again the “scientific” polling was maddeningly wrong, giving us over-confidence and high hopes. The adage is “You can’t love your country and hate half of it.” What is the way forward with such absolutely opposite realities?

    • November 4, 2020 at 10:03 am

      For context:

      Dear Magapie,

      You may remember my initial comments immediately after Barack Obama became President-Elect in 2008 – ‘the Civil War never ended and a Black President was BARELY the beginning of bringing it to an end.’

      For Joe Biden to select Kamala Harris as his VP mate absolutely enraged white folk.

      Whiteness is ALL most of those 62 Million have. It’s their ‘core value.’

      Sure, a few of the 62 Million are just ultra-wealthy, greedy (expletive).

      It will be another decade or two before ‘whiteness’ becomes a minor factor in determining the fate of American Democracy.

      That is a FACT THAT PUTIN HAS MASTERFULLY LEVERAGED.

      As noted on several occasions, here and elsewhere, America was founded by white male, genocidal, slave owners.

      That legacy is far from eradicated.

      Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and everyone here and all who supported them will now move America a bit further in the direction of a different legacy.

      However, to do that we all must take whatever peaceful action required to ensure Trump is extracted from the White House – for real.

      Peace.

        Oh Bob, you speak the truth.

        I have a dear friend in FL who follows politics more than I do, who works with the Latino communities and learned to speak Spanish in Florida through the people she serves. She told me exactly what you said here “For Joe Biden to select Kamala Harris as his VP mate absolutely enraged white folk.

        Whiteness is ALL most of those 62 Million have. It’s their ‘core value.”

        And there are no greater racists than some from South America, including from Light skin Cubans.

        She also explained that Biden was seen as a “socialist” in many of those circles, thanks to Agolf Twittler who switched the label from Bernie to Joe. And they, with all the benefits they enjoy, e.g. medicare, SSI, and the like, are fearful of “socialism”.

        But at the end, to me, America has an ignorant electorate. Anybody that can be swayed by a 30 second ad is a lost case. And that is what we have in this country, an electorate who listens to Fox News’s ads and its pastors’ advice. An electorate that doesn’t examine its candidates as it would a nanny or a secretary.

      Greed and fear-stoked racism is the foundation stone and the bedrock of our country from its very inception to the present. These things do not bend to logic and it was a mistake for anyone to think differently (Black people did not forget). PBO was a unicorn, lightning in a bottle, the “gift outright” that we were not expecting. We will not see his like again. The trump era has opened our eyes to the real USA. Now, we do what Black people have always done: dig in, try your hardest while knowing that the goal posts and the rules will always change mid-game. In the meantime, live your best life; do not let them take your joy. One of the worst things that we can do is to give them our fear, our dread, our tears. They feast on them and value them more than the quality of their own lives which is why they keep voting against their own self-interest. PS. I am Black and I know of which I speak from generations of experience.

      CEB from Florida; Duval County that went hard for Biden-Harris who got more than 18,000 votes over the orange one in this election.

      THAT is what scares me the most about this election…the confirmation that there are those — a whole lot of those — who have little or no care for each other or this country.

      Often these people as negatively impacted like the majority of Americans. However, they either recognize what is happening and believe that it won’t happen to them, or see themselves as willing to sacrifice for the cause (whatever that “cause” is).

          The *Goal* was/is/has always been to get tRump out of office. Shellacking would have been icing on the cake. As long as the goal is reached, I’m satisfied.

    Joe Biden is up to 69.9 million votes as of 12:10 p.m. ET Wednesday.

    That means he has surpassed Obama’s record for the most votes of anyone who has ever run for president.
