REAL Green wrote:“Joe Biden is not an “imperfect candidate” for the Democrats. He is the perfect candidate, because he’s everything the party is: Demented. Decrepit. Bloodthirsty. Corrupt. Cronyistic. Authoritarian. Reactionary. Rapey..... They’re accusing Reade of lying for partisan reasons, when in reality that’s exactly what they are doing: they’re pretending they believe Handsy Joe Biden is incapable of shoving his fingers into a woman without her consent, and they are lying. Out of pure partisan loyalty. Terence McKenna once said “We are led by the least among us. The least intelligent, the least noble, the least visionary.” Can’t think of a better illustration of this than having Donald Trump versus Joe Biden competing for the most powerful elected office on the planet.”


Don't give up hope on the Ds just yet.

There are a lot of Ds who are VERY unhappy with having Joe Biden as their D nominee.

Don't be surprised if the honest Ds (and there are a few of them out there) rebel against having a rapist suffering from cognitive decline as the D party nominee.

Its very disappointing that none of the leading women Ds (Gillibrand, Pelosi, Kamala, etc.) and none of the leading male Ds (Bernie, Mayor Pete, Obama) have the courage to stand up to the D party and ask Joe to step down or at least to be more transparent. But I remain hopeful that Biden's nomination can still be derailed and a more qualified nominee will then replace him on the D ticket.

Cheers!

This is going to be a tough year for 3rd party candidates.

Some years ago the Ds and the Rs joined forces to change state election laws and make it much harder for third party candidates to get on the ballot. You'd think every 3rd party that was on the ballot in 2016 would automatically get on again, but there are about 30 states where third parties must do petition drives just to get on the ballot for 2020.

But you can't do a petition drive in the age of covid virus. People won't come up to the petition table and sign the forms because it breaks social distancing. We had a big recall going in Alaska with a petition drive, and it has just died.

On top of that, TWITTER and YOUTUBE are already taking down videos for third party candidates. They can censor anyone they want and this year they are censoring 3rd party candidates.

The Green Party looks ahead to 2020 election

So this will probably be a down year for third party candidates.

In the early days of the pandemic, the U.S. government turned down an offer to manufacture millions of N95 masks in America

Rather damning evidence of governmental paralysis under Donald Trump.

MAGA my "ass", then.
