We have no choice but to add US states in 2021!

Welcome DC, PR, and the Pacific territories of Guam, Northern Marianas, and American Samoa to the United States.

The Pacific territories should become united as a single state. This would add 6 senators. This is the only way to save our democracy. Of course removing the filibuster should be first, but we can't survive as a country with 51 senators knowing a single heart attack can change the makeup of the country. We can't deal with this.

Then we can feel comfortable passing laws knowing that it'll be hard for Republicans to pay us back as regaining control would be a mountain for them for years to come.

A 6-3 Court will invalidate EVERYTHING Biden signs into law

And I mean EVERYTHING. There will be no law that Biden signs that some nut wing will take to a court and say it validates their constitutional freedoms. I think even a minimum wage will be struck down. Everything will be freedom of religion, civil liberties, etc. The ONLY remedy we have it to expand the court.

Of course, this is assuming Trump's replacement gets a vote. The only way the Court doesn't expand is if Biden gets to choose her replacement, otherwise, we're in big shit even if Biden wins.

Former Sen. Claire McCaskill predicts a Biden blowout

I actually believe that Joe Biden will end up somewhere in the neighborhood of 350 electoral votes. I think hell win Florida. I think Joe Biden will win Ohio. And I think hell win Arizona.

Will Joe Biden make a deal with Trump after the election?

Trump sees everything as a transaction or quid pro quo. I predict Biden will beat Trump. Trump knows it's over, but will try to extract a deal out of Biden. He'll say that he'll concede and go away peacefully in the night if he promises not to prosecute him or his family. No lawsuits or contesting the results. Now I'm assuming all this will be very private. Nothing public.

You think Joe will bite? My thinking is that he should take the deal and quickly arrest him once he takes over.

So is the Hatch Act officially dead?

We have a lawless administration with a lawless attorney general.

My question, what should Pelosi and President Biden pass into law next year to tighten up our corruption laws so we can never have another Donald Trump?

Let's face it, a lot of our democracy is built on tradition and norms. Our country wasn't designed for a lawless president with a party that was just as culpable. I think there needs to be laws stating a president can be indicted. There needs to be an independent counsel statute again that doesn't depend on the AG like Mueller did. They need rein in pardon powers as well. They need to do something to prevent a future president being worse than Trump.

Amy McGrath has decided China is the most important issue in 2020

I live in Kentucky. Is this happening in other states fellow DU'ers? McGrath, for some reason, has forsaken health care, USPS, and Corona to spend all her ads attacking Mitch on China. Is this something that will really drive people to the polls? I don't get it. Are you guys seeing ads targeting health care, the economy, and other more important issues in your areas? I just don't understand why she's made China the #1 issue in the race.

Should Joe Biden insist on USPS funding before debating Trump?

I was thinking that maybe Joe should say he would refuse to debate Trump if he refuses to fund the post office. He could say that Trump is actively subverting the election and he won't give him the time of day to legitimize him with a debate. What do you think?

Wow, Chuck Todd actually made a good point about Biden!

Somehow Todd put together a few brain cells and made a good point that I hadn't really thought about...that Joe Biden did the Democratic Party a favor with this VP process by elevating all those women in the national psyche, especially women of color. Candidates like Bass, Demings, Whitmer all have been strengthened by the process. After this process, you can see a possible Demings running for Senate or Governor in Florida, etc.

KY-SEN: Mitch trouncing Amy McGrath 53%-36%

As a Kentuckian, I knew Amy McGrath didn't have a prayer of beating Mitch. I voted for Booker in the primary cause at least he would go down swinging. McGrath is running a terrible campaign here. I'm not bashing her as I think she is a fine person, but her campaign manager needs to kick rocks. And her ads are really bad...like really bad. I'm talking cringeworthy. Mitch is killing her and she is not hitting him back hard at all.

With Obama's blessing, I think the filibuster is toast

Should the Dems win the Senate, I think the filibuster is gone. We'll get a ton of good legislation passed, but I think we should caution ourselves because if we just have a 1 or 2 seat majority, we'll need the blessing the moderate/conservative Dems in the Senate like Joe Manchin. We'll probably need a 4 seat cushion in order to get real progressive bills passed.
