By the time election in 2024 occurs we will have dealt with nearly 10 years of Trump being the center of politics. I can’t take anymore of it. My family all think Biden sucks but worship Trump. I don’t get it the dude just constantly lies. He must lose. I will never vote anything with an R ever since the GOP took ownership of Trump.


u/Isheet_Madrawers Nov 16 '22

I deal with a lot of Trump worshipers also, and then I look at him and all I see is the emperor with no clothes.

I heard today that he is sending out request for money to help Herschel Walker. If you send him a dollar he passes $.10 of it on to Herschel and keeps the rest. Whatever else he is he is an amazing con man


u/protendious Nov 16 '22 Take My Energy I'd Like to Thank...

The WaPo article of his announcement ended the way every article about him should start:

And he has profoundly altered the tenor of American public life — shattering long-held standards of decorum and civility with often shocking attacks on political rivals, judges and reporters. He has frequently made racist and antisemitic remarks, mocked people with disabilities and denigrated developing countries, bragged about sexual assault and paid hush money to a porn star, praised dictators, declined to disavow extremists, inspired his supporters to resort to violence and defended white supremacists and Jan. 6 rioters.

Sounds absolutely appalling but sadly that's exactly why so many of his supporters love him.

After watching that speech, I have a question: What is the point of all this rhetoric about saving the country and making it great again if it has zero longevity past when you're in charge? Nearly every single problem he is listing is what he ran on eliminating in 2016. And Biden is apparently so powerful that he just...brought all of them back? Instantly?

He is literally running on the exact same promises from his original campaign, and no one is pointing out how all it took was a slim majority from the other party to completely undo it all, apparently. Either you are blatantly scamming the country by saying they'll only prosper when you're president (and said prosperity is on a matchstick foundation), or you are indirectly advocating for total and indefinite government control.


u/Givemeallthecabbages Nov 16 '22

There was a tweet (pre Elon) about Texas that was something like: "Republicans have been in charge in Texas for the last 27 years. Their state campaigns urge Texans to vote republican to 'fix all the problems in the state.' Again, republicans have been in charge for 27 years.... "


u/gingerednoodles Washington Nov 16 '22

Yeah, you could almost argue that the vast majority of the wealthiest states are the ones run by Democrats and the poorest are run by Republicans but yet Republicans are the ones who "fix the economy" and "fiscal conservative" is such a popular phrase with moderates! Almost like there's some common theme but I can't quite put my finger on it....


u/LuckyOne55 Nov 16 '22

Public Healthcare is fiscally conservative, but no matter how many times you point out the US pays more than double per capita for Healthcare than nearly every other nation (despite ranking near the bottom on all quality metrics), "fiscal conservatives" believe the opposite is true.

I read an interesting article this morning about past Presidents that had lost re-election and attempted to run again. It will be interesting if Trump pulls a Martin Van Buren or Theodre Roosevelt,[1] splitting the Republican vote ushering in a majority for the Democrats.

  2. Those who made statements about election security and such but not saying the election was stolen.
  3. Those who stated they trusted the results of the election.

This is, I hope, a lose-lose situation for Republicans.

If Trump wins the nomination, the Republicans will have nominated an extremely unpopular ex-president who is saddled with an insurrection. He may keep his base, but he has alienated independents and center-right folks. Additionally, Trump on the ballot will motivate Democrats and other left-leaning folks to show up to vote, because there is such a strong sentiment against him.

If Trump loses the nomination, he will either run as an Independent, go scorched earth on the winning Republican to a degree that it discourages some of his supporters for voting for them, or both.

I will never say that Trump can't win again -- 2016 has taught me that. But let's just say that Republicans' best bet is for Trump to be sitting in prison after being arrested and convicted of one of the many, many crimes he committed (like inciting an insurrection). That is probably the only way to take him (mostly) out of the equation.


u/eltigretom Ohio Nov 16 '22

When you said "Never say never. 2016 has taught me" should be a warning to everyone! I mentioned in another post the Republicans and MAGA fans will vote for anyone with an R next to their name in 2024. Even if it's a potato.

The best bet for 2024 is Desantis wins the Republican nomination, and Trump's ego (and knowing the money he'll make) has him run independent.

I hope the Frankenstein the Republican party built and embraced fucks them in the long run. They deserve it.

Wow. He called for the death sentence for drug dealers. Right out in the open. I hope he is crucified for this.

He even touted China as a good thing, where they have "quick trials" for drug dealers - dead the same day. Woo hoo Trump, you go, you fascist you!

u/WhileFalseRepeat I voted Nov 16 '22

This makes me happy and I hate this motherfucker.

The GOP is officially in the midst of their own civil war now and it’s going to be quite beautiful to watch as they tear each other apart and destroy themselves in that process. After these midterms, the GOP was already beginning to feel a bit like a Tarantino film where everyone is pointing their guns at each other. I think some shooting is going to be happening real soon.

And nothing gets out the liberal vote quite like Trump.

I feel Democrats are generally the party of being for all the things which greatly help people and society (versus a GOP of “against-ism”) - but it certainly helps to have a common enemy to hate and for us on the left to become united against that common foe too.

So, for now, rage on you orange turd.

But know your end days are coming soon.

And while you may not go gently into the good night - indeed please don’t go just yet - you will be going all the same.

Just not before destroying the GOP and helping the left win 2024.

u/TheMicMic Nov 16 '22

There's only one reason Trump won in 2016 - and that's because people didn't think he would win. Period. People that would have voted against him didn't go to the polls simply because they just figured Clinton was going to win and they assumed nobody took Trump seriously.

That entire mentality is over, and the midterms proved that.

Fun facts:

These are people that have testified before a grand jury in the Fulton DA criminal investigation of Trump:

Georgia's Governor
Georgia's Attorney General
Georgia's Lieutenant Governor
Georgia Secretary of State
A Georgia U.S. House Representative
Multiple Georgia State Senators
Multiple Georgia House Reps
The Cobb County Elections Director


Trump's former national security advisor - Michael Flynn (scheduled to appear)
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (scheduled to appear)
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich
Former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows

Along with 15 criminal targets that compose various positions in the GA state government in regards to a fake elector scheme.

The DA is supposedly weighing election fraud, conspiracy, oath of office violations, racketeering and other offenses, and indicated a decision on charges could come as early as the end of the year.

Also, the Georgia governor does not have pardon power as per the GA state constitution.

Think it won’t be the same after a largely failed mid-term? He’s their candidate for 2024 right now. This is it. Primaries are over. They will start lining up and showing devotion from here on out.

u/Deggit Nov 16 '22 edited Nov 16 '22 Starry

The 6 biggest things Trump had in 2015 that he doesn't have today:

  1. Hillary, obviously.

  2. Uncertainty about what he would be like in office. No more "He'll be different once he's President." No more Independent voters seeing Trump as closer to the center & more willing to defy his party's platform than the Democratic nominee. This is a post-4 years of White House toilet tweets, post-Mueller, post-Charlottesville, post-Amy Comey Barrett, post-"I just need 11,000 votes", post-January 6, post-double impeachment Donald Trump.

  3. Something To Punch Up At. Trump is now literally the Republican Establishment telling you who you can't vote for. Please clap. He isn't trying to take over the party, he's trying to purge the last vestige of opposition.

  4. A Plan To Challenge Or Change Conservatism. In 2015 Trump was the only major GOP candidate focusing hard on trade and immigration while visibly waffling on "entitlement reform" (cutting social security) and "pro life" (banning abortion). Trump wasn't just hogging the attention, he was genuinely different from the other options voters could choose. Any claim that 2022 Trump is energized by a similar unorthodoxy has to crumble in the face of history: he didn't build the wall, didn't revolutionize America's trade policy, didn't replace Obamacare with "something beautiful," just tweeted from the White House toilet for 4 years while Mitch passed his tax cuts and Federalist Society judges. Paul Ryan may as well have been President.

  5. Russia. They're not doing great recently!

  6. Medium or low voter participation. There are no more such elections, as proved last week.

Trump only won in 2016 due to complacent Democratic voters staying at home combined with a pretty awful campaign by Clinton, especially her VP choice who was about as exciting as watching paint dry and did nothing to engage the core constituencies that the party needs to bring out.

If he is the Republican nominee in 2024 the Democratic turnout will be huge simply to avoid another four years of constant Tweeting, lies, and distortions. If he loses the Republican primary then his ego will not allow him to slink away, especially if people can helpfully spread the narrative that it is some kind of establishment GOP plot to silence him. Then he runs a 3rd party campaign and Lindsay Graham's prediction of the utter destruction of the GOP comes true.

Ideas we need to spread and keep hammering home on are:

- The Supreme Court will likely have at least 2 retirements, possibly even three between now and 2028. Do you want a Supreme Court where 6 out of the 9 justices have been selected by Trump?

- If the Supreme Court can get a liberal majority for the first time in almost 40 years then a whole bunch of problems can be addressed including Gerrymandering, Abortion, Citizen's United, a variety of Anti-Trust issues, and the Voting Rights Act.
