    A day until the American election and I'm glad I'm Canadian. I don't know what to believe as far and polls and misinformation, all I know is if tRump does lose, he's not going to take no for an answer.

    All the disgusting things he's represents are what the people who vote for him are supporting. God help 'merica if he gets back in power.

    I just started today working in The Loop. They just warned us that if there is "civil unrest" that they plan to evacuate the building and send everybody home. Also if there is civil unrest tomorrow not to bother coming in to work on Wednesday.
    Also several places along Madison between Ogilvie Transportation Center and LaSalle Street have boarded up their windows.
    I don't know how long they've been boarded up, I haven't been to Chicago since early March and even then I was heading south along Riverside Street or taking a bus north to Orleans.
    First day back at work since July and they are warning about evacuations.

    My boss took everybody's cell phone number and said he'd be sending a mass text if there was civil unrest so we wouldn't need to come in to work.
    With my luck I'll get it when I'm already on the express train.

    I doubt it's going to be that easy. Shenanigans will be called. Lawsuits are already filed in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada and Georgia.

    Isn't it a bit premature for lawsuits?
    Oh wait, they were filed by Trump, weren't they?
    That's all the explanation I need.

    I don't understand why Trump is already whining and crying about lawsuits when there is an overwhelmingly huge amount of mail in and absentee ballots still to be processed. But I guess if he loses he'll be facing a lot of personal lawsuits.

    Apparently it's tradition for Republicans to vote on election day. If that's true then a lot of those mail-in and absentee ballots could be for Biden. That should seal the deal.

    Well, of course, Trump announced both massive fraud and victory well before-hand and will pick the one that suits him (or both). The whole thing would be a joke if it weren't really sad. If he loses, I'm sure that even when he runs out of legal manoeuvres to pursue he will not have the dignity to leave the White House without having to be forcibly removed.

    I think it would be fun to see the U.S. Marshals drag him out kicking and screaming. :beer:

    You doubt what? That he has dignity? You've already said that you don't like him as a person but you don't care because you have to support him because he's your only republican choice. It's ok to admit Trump is an asshole who plays dirty and has no morals.

    Trump is an asshole as a person, but like I said in another thread to Slick, I think you have a distorted view of him. Why would he refuse to leave after all his options are spent? He gains nothing but humiliation because there is no way in hell he would be allowed to stay. Frankly I think it's ridiculous, but like I said, I'm open to being wrong.

    And, no, I don't have to support him because he's the only Republican choice. Would I prefer someone with better manners? Of course. But the Trump administration has done many good things during his term in the face of all the BS of the "resistance". As an absolute minimum his administration has done or tried to do exactly what he said his administration would do if elected. He has appointed textualists/originalists to the courts including the Supreme Court. His administration has reduced regulations and cut taxes to usher in what was a fantastic economy until SARS-CoV-2 was unleashed. He moved the US embassy to Jerusalem like he promised when the last four Presidents promised but didn't deliver. His administration has brokered peace deals between Israel and Arab nations when the "pundits" said such a thing was impossible without the Palestinians getting theirs first. He's getting us out of the endless wars. He's been trying to control the southern border with huge resistance from the looney Left. I could probably go on, but those are what come immediately to mind. So; good stuff for the USA. In the face of that I don't care that he's an asshole.

    Yup, he's a regular saint Blackthorne. I'm glad you are such a good judge of character.

    Please. I didn't say he was a saint; I said he and his administration have done good things for the USA, and that's what I care about in a President.

    Biden's in the lead in Georgia right now -- winning there would put him way ahead with electoral votes.

    Edit: Holy Moly, Pennsylvania too just as I wrote that!
