Progressives have been doing this for a long time - changing the language.  For instance - "Planned Parenthood".

Speaking of indoctrination, does the Biden campaign phrase "Build Back Better" ring a bell?  It's not merely a case of plagiarism.

It's a slogan from a United Nations conference in 2015.  For extra fun, search "Build Back Better" with Google's image search.

Globalists.  Not a coincidence at all.

re. drugs...so turn pricing of our drugs over to foreign countries? it's BS/ propaganda, with no real solution.
p.s., Canada's not going to be such a great partner, allowing for the export of drugs to the US, which also violates our drug tracing laws....there is no way to accurately track where these drugs came from or have been.

and the  repeal of the individual mandate will only lead to even higher healthcare costs. A central tenet of universal care's ability to lower costs is to put everyone in the pool, require all, healthy and sick, to have coverage their entire lives. By eliminating it only the sick will get coverage, and further drive up the cost.

clearly said if you mail in your ballot you have a one hundred times greater chance of it being rejected as opposed to voting in person

So I get asked all the time why I still support Trump, for the past 5 years ...

Well how about those of you who actually support Biden and his agenda ?  No, not those of you who are voting against Trump by voting for Biden..

I want to hear from those who actually want Biden to win for what he brings to the table for them and why ?

Is there anyone here who actually supports Biden and trusts him to do what he promises ?
 
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

If you're asked that all of the time...did you ever wonder why?

I would vote for just about any person in the country against Trump, but when he loses it will be for 2 reasons: COVID and Healthcare.

COVID gets discussed here all the time, so regarding healthcare....he has done nothing.  It's easy to take things away, but replacing them isn't so simple after all.  Like his tax returns, he has been promising a healthcare reform proposal that will deliver "better healthcare and be less expensive".   4 and one-half years later....wait until you see the plan!  He has nothing.  If re-elected....he'll have nothing.  He will NEVER deliver anything to large populations regarding healthcare.

I am in the last month of COBRA that costs me $2,100/month.  The same plan next month will cost me $4,800/month.  I'm never sick.  My wife and daughter are never sick.  I kick myself now thinking about the $38k I spent over the past 18 months for nothing....only to run into even higher costs.  The idea of company-provided healthcare has died from greed and a lack of alternatives.  Slightly over half of the US population is covered at work now.  It's a disaster.  Kurt, you deal with healthcare a lot.  Do you feel like it's efficient, effective, well organized, and delivered by people who are happy?  All of the doctors I know complain now.  The layers of crap are unimmaginable.  

If you had to pick one of the two to (begin to) fix healthcare over the 4 years...which would you pick?

While we are all susceptible to cognitive dissonance, that doesn't mean we are all susceptible to equal degrees. At the very beginning of Trumps candidature I asserted that Trump does not meet your own agenda Kurtster. I still believe that. You can toss all the ranting and raving about Democrats out the window. As best as I can make out, this is your agenda:

1. secure our borders against illegal immigration
2. pare back the powers of government
3. drain the swamp 
4. reduce constraints on (small) businesses
5. repeal Obamacare

Forgive any error on my part if I have got this wrong. Please correct as necessary.

Now, hand on heart, after four years in power, how well has he done in terms of your own agenda?
 
You've got the first four correct.  As far as the ACA is concerned I also wanted it replaced, not just repealed.  Trump has taken steps to actually fix some of the problems that created the need for something like the ACA.  Look at what he has done to lower the actual out of pocket costs of Rx meds.  That is a huge deal, especially to those on a fixed income.  The Insulin fix.  He has signed an executive order to protect those with pre existing conditions.  More than just symbolic, Congress has to respond to it by either honoring it by looking the other way or pass legislation that would do it.  I'll bet it's the former that happens should he get re elected.   Let's see a President Biden try to reverse / undo that one. There are other fixes that haven't been tried that would lower net costs, such as buying insurance across state lines, providers posting prices for procedures for comparison shopping.  The ACA was so expensive that those who had it could not afford to use it with the insane co pays and restrictions not to mention the lack of doctors willing to participate that made it unworkable.  It was just plain bad law and real bad for the health care system.  Furthermore, with the individual mandate, it was a tax, not a benefit.  If unpaid, there are were financial penalties, which Trump did away with anyway and already.

4) He most certainly did well with this.  The consensus of businesses big and small, that given the choice of paying less in taxes or getting deregulation, they would prefer the later.  They got both.  And he also brought back manufacturing to the USA.  Even now with the CV 19 thing, everywhere I go in either commercial areas or industrial areas there are help wanted signs everywhere and many with starting wages posted on these signs.  Good jobs with benefits.

3)  He is doing his best.  I am pleased to see that he has been tough enough to take all it has dished out at so far.  I voted for a street fighter who knew how to get tough and tougher when needed.  Remember, he is the 2nd POTUS in my lifetime to get into office basically financially independent and not subject to the pressures of lobbyists and the rest of the swamp creatures.  JFK was the first.  We all know what happened to him.  The Coup has been uncovered with the Brennan smoking gun.  Just before the election, all the while it was being stonewalled from coming out at least as far back as before the 2018 election.  It would have prevented the House from flipping.

2)  Or better manage them.  It hasn't been easy when any court can impose injunctions against his efforts, regardless of merit.  Most of those have been overturned by the SCOTUS, yet it is a tactic to get bad laws and so many of them on the books that it is impossible to challenge all of them.  The death of a thousand cuts.  And Activist judges.

1)  I do give him credit for his efforts to date, again with the all the obstruction he has faced, he has gotten a good part of the wall lengthened and much more existing improved.  He got the Mexican government to post 27,000 of their own troops on their side of the border for interdiction purposes at their own expense.  So yeah, Mexico is paying for some of it.  Illegal cross border traffic has been greatly reduced and something must be going better because we don't hear of any one screaming about the use of cages (built by Obama) anymore.  Or was that just the slime du jour until they overdid it ?

And yes, Economic Nationalism.  Any debate of that was killed by calling it racist and white supremacist, which could not be further from the truth.

Lastly, and most important, Trump has made the USA energy independent, finally and with unimaginable opposition from within our own country to accomplish such an important goal.  The air has never been cleaner and our CO2 reduction blows away any other western country of similar scale, including the EU overall, IIRC.  All this inspite of dropping out of the Paris thingy.

He has gotten the deadbeat EU countries to finally pony up to NATO and get them to pay what they promised, yet never intended to pay.

I voted for him to put the kinds of judges into the system that he has and to end wars, not start them. 

Works for me.

A friend of mine who lives near where this rally took place explained to me that you have to be at least one of 3 things to support the re-election (but the more, the better):  Stupid, Racist, or Selfish.  He appears to be on to something.
