We spend 40% of global military to protect America, so how is a traitor in with a chance to win in November?

I just can't understand why the traitor wasn't immediately arrested after he tried a coup on January 6th or after he tried to get secretary of states to find him more votes. There are plenty of other pieces of evidence that he is a traitor, working against the interests of our nation and favoring Putin over America.

This could be the end of America as we know it, and his lawyers have been able to appeal and appeal all the way to the day he could be our dictator. How could we as a nation be so vulnerable to possibly allow everything to be taken from us in broad daylight?

There has never been another human being with more ill-intent for the future of America. We are being attacked from within---everything from our justice system, our relationship with our allies, the UN, our environment, our healthcare system, and our basic democratic rights, and it is being done by turning American against American, based on lies, hate, and prejudices, supported by fascist-supporting propoganda. These are real threats, based on Trump’s own words and actions. Maybe not coincidentally, it happens to be the safest method that Putin could inflict damage on America (and other nations) without the need to drop a single bomb or fire a single bullet.

Once we lose these things, we may never get them back. How has our security been so weak? How is Traitor Trump still a free man? And how the hell can a he be a candidate to be president?

what could happen if Trump is elected? Two different things, but if I have an alarm system in my house, I'm also going to close the doors and windows.

I have some family and friends in some other countries. There is no way the tfg could work as POTUS without completely ruining this country

Of which AG is part. A man who was picked by Biden.

Who is the one person ultimately responsible for the performance of the Administration?

I don't get why someone who NEVER conceded a legitimate election and then tried to OVERTHROW the government and who is now a multi-felon who couldn't get a SECURITY CLEARANCE can run YET AGAIN to be PRESIDENT - how the FUCK does that work???

pee-resident Con von Putin sicced a mob on the Capitol of the United States in order to stop Congress from doing its duties to name the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.

Been saying it since that day.

Great OP, Doodley! Every word.
