See that, technovelist? That’s not TDS. That is a bit of sanity.
Biden is indeed morally bankrupt. His family has been enriched to the tune of billions of dollars thanks to his selling his access to Obama.

That aside, as far as "not TDS", maybe not, but this seems a bit over the top:

"I am so over Trump and the cult of personality he has constructed. The GOP has lost its soul and it needs purification. And that is only going to come from a trip to the electoral woodshed."

"lost its soul and it needs purification"? Sounds like a religious issue to me.

And at this point it looks far more likely that the Democrats are the ones who are going to get a trip to the electoral woodshed. Their top-tier candidates are totally and completely out of touch with the American people and have no chance to beat someone who gets tens of thousands of people to show up at rallies with a few days notice. They can barely fill a high-school cafeteria.

By the way, predictit.org says Trump is very likely to be re-elected: https://www.predictit.org/markets/detai ... l-election

Yes. Techno and I can agree on this. I cant believe all the shrieking in this thread about concentration camps, with no one providing any ideas:

Meanwhile when I point out what works and can scale up:

https://mlf.org/community-first/

ofc I get downvoted because its not a utopian narrative

And it troubles you that wisdom is not found in a forum dominated by opinions that can be expressed in 15 words or less?

The upvoting and downvoting on reddit generally don’t make sense. Like twitter, it simply does not reflect real life.

I agree, I could never get into the way reddit operates. Upvoting/downvoting? It's like reddit took a great technology (internet bulletin boards) and paired it with the worst aspects of social media (likes, notifications, iPopularity).

To sleep, perchance to dream; ay, there's the rub
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

I have seen Wisdom in the comments.

Did they move somewhere, btw?
A more important question: Is there some conservative platform out there that is kind of mellow?
