Freepers are living in a crazy level of denial.

Last edited Sun Nov 8, 2020, 04:21 PM - Edit history (1)

“I have put $500 on predictit.com [that Trump will win re-election], and I will take home well over more than $5000 when Trump wins...again.”

That’s a very astute bet. More people need be to placing such bets. If not $500 make it $5000 or $50000. Monday may be a good morning to go to the mortgage company, pull all the equity out of the house and place it on this bet.


The tears from MAGAts are going to be a tidal wave in a couple weeks.

1. It's sinking in. Most of them are coming to grips with it.

A few dead-enders and true believers won't, but that's always the case with a cult.

2. And the potential anger

They own it, we aren't responsible for it. Infact, it makes me less empathetic than I would otherwise be to these true cult members .

3. I've been watching Electionbettingodds.com and wondering who on earth is betting for Trump

To win. Seems delusional to me, too. For sure no one should ever bet any money they can’t afford to lose, on anything, let alone something that isn’t going to happen.

6. Delusion combined with conspiracy theories combined with greed.

I mean if Trump is going to defeat the deep state and reverse the outcome of the "fraudulent" election why not turn $500 into $5,000.

What could possibly go wrong?

The smart players with deep pockets are just accepting the other side of these delusional bets and pocketing the 10%. Not a big gain but for the arbitrage players and those who market make the deadenders a nice cleanup.

12. They are UTTERLY delusional. They will bet the farm...

...and when they lose EVERYTHING, they will blame Biden, the Democrats and ANTIFA for stealing the election AND all their worldly goods.

I just hope they bet the pickup trucks and AR-15s as well.

13. I just checked that site

and I think he's getting terrible odds. I suppose there are many who are delusional and believe that somehow Trump will still win which is keeping these shares up. I never bet on something like this but Biden at 91 looks like an easy way to win money.

17. Yeah the only reason why Biden is "only" at 91 is because it will take a long time

for the contract to close. When Biden is officially President (jan 20) it will be worth $1.00 but you can sell it for $0.91 now instead of waiting more than two months. Gamblers tend to be impatient. That means contracts which have a long time remaining before they close sell at a discount.

15. i don't think US citizens are allowed to bet on US elections.

Either he is lying or breaking the law.


Betting Political Elections Is Illegal Throughout the United States
Betting on sports used to be illegal almost everywhere, but over the last couple of years, legislation has loosened up regarding betting on sports.

People also bet on entertainment events like who’s going to win the Oscars, although that kind of betting isn’t as prevalent and isn’t legal in as many states.

But betting on political elections is illegal throughout the United States.

18. PredictIt is open to Americans. It is a legal loophole.

Long story to explain but it is legal and open to Americans at least currently. Predictit is run by Victoria University of Wellington and its HQ is in DC. They have operated for 6 years now.

I watched Fox last night off and on and nearly every guest they had on was saying they felt good about Trump being re-elected by how things were looking in the courts with the challenges. I could only shake my head they were telling their viewers that.

22. Point taken. There was a lot of delusion here in 2016 as well

however it was a mix of viewpoints. Some saying Trump won it, some saying Trump stole it, and only few saying Trump stole but don't worry Clinton will end up winning in the end.

That isn't freeperland right now. It is like 99%+ Trump absolutely positively will be the President on Jan 20th. There is no even acceptance that maybe just maybe Biden will be the 46th President.

23. The focus wasn't election fraud

More on creating faithless electors (not too dissimilar from Trump's assertion that the PA legislation will appoint loyal electors to name him president). And, later, on the 25th amendment.

25. I guess the difference I see is that it wasn't universal.

Here there was a wide variety of viewpoints. Some pragmatic, some introspective (how could this happen), some very much delusional and longshot type thinking.

That at least yet hasn't happened in freeperland. It is very much 100% faith Trump will be the next President. The idea that he even could not isn't even being seriously considered. Hence why not throw $500 on a 10:1 longshot bet because hell it pretty much is guaranteed money because absolutely positively Trump will be President.

How much of that is false bravado or only the most extreme elements talking and the rest tuning out in depression I don't know but it is a crazy detachment from reality.

between the sites, namely that DUers don't support fascism and freepers do. That alone makes us much different.

21. I like to check in on the Freepers periodically.

For awhile, there were regular updates from the Qidiots. It seems that there has been no new Q drop for SIX DAYS! Hmmm... very suspicious. Trust the plan indeed.

Lots of speculation on how the "massive vote fraud" was accomplished.

The thing that most perplexes me is the site's fundraising. He solicits for $88,000 every quarter. What a well-paying scam for a site completely populated by crazy posters.

The comments on Breitbart are comical. "Kavanaugh will fix this next week" is a common theme. They actually think the Supreme Court can simply declare the election for Trump.

the long emotional hangover they’ll get to enjoy when reality crashes through.

I slept badly for three weeks after Election Night 2016 and have grieved the loss of the image I’d had of America before then. It’s their turn.

34. What I've read, Trump had to lose in order to flush out the criminals and expose the election fraud.

When that happens, Trump will be declared the rightful winner and Biden, Obama, Hillary, Deep Staters and others will be rounded up and sent off to prison.
