Congratulations, you now have the basis on why the majority of voters and American citizens see Trump and his supporters as even worse......

According to who. Trump's win was the choice of a lesser evil

His reelection will be a repeat of that historic victory.

Biden for president...really?

Don't flatter yourself... I doubt that anyone who understands and wants us to be what the US Constitution says we should be cares one furry rat-ass about Trump supporters, except to have them slither back under the rocks from where they came.

Ask anybody with common sense what they think about anti-Trumpers and they won’t give a rats ass about them except for the fact that they should crawl back into the horses ass they were shit out of.

The Republican party, as we once knew it, no long exists.

Bush and Romney support left wing ideals and have lost what little influence they might have had.

Say hello to the party of Trump. Finally we have someone who is, and will continue, to lead the country in the right direction.

Bush is still no doubt against Trump along with his entire family since Trump pushed Jeb Bush out of the race.

Romney could not possibly support Trump given his position regarding impeachment.

If either of these two had supported Trump, that would have been quite a newsworthy surprise.

I voted 3rd party in 2016, but there is nobody to choose from in 2020. Conundrum is not to vote at all or pick lesser of evils and I do not either choice.

A vote for a third party is effectively a vote for the dem or rep.

Did that once with Perot, helped Clinton get elected the first time.

Never again.

If I were an American I would not consider either Trump or Biden the kind of leader I could wish for and support (as I did JFK) but notwithstanding that I would not hold my vote but would vote for Biden in the hope of dumping the worst disaster for America, and the rest of the world, I have seen in my lifetime.

Called it another seed. 

The left touting a president they thought was worse than Satan for endorsing Biden.

Too bad Bush Jr has no clout; and Romney even less, among Republicans and conservatives. Two abject Establishment losers backing another Establishment loser.

I was wondering how this was considered news... LOL

it is a given that every globalist prick of a ex president alive today is against trump.

trump has already destroyed 30yrs of their work.  of course they hate him... LOL

 unemployment to 50yr lows after every ex president alive today promised and failed to do that?  priceless

either every ex president alive today was incompetent, or they all worked to sell us out.

Who gives two shits what those losers do or don't do.

Here's a hint asswipes, you didn't support Candidate Trump in 2016 and he's now called President Trump.

So much for your personal belief that you have any influence in American politics.   Run along now and have a two man circle jerk.

Yes, Trump lied and clowned and buffooned , and "conservatives" were impressed. It is one of the tragedies of modern America.

A bigger tragedy .....  the run on butt cream immediately after the 2016 election.   Manufacturers just haven't been able to keep up and it's having a chilling effect on the TDS ridden minority.   I hear its really tough to think straight when your butt hurts.

I'll pray for the TDS ridden, i'll pray for their salvation ..... Praise Jesus!   Hallelujah!

I was just kind of wondering, and want to ask the American members here, what kind of "checks and balances" would there be if all three divisions of government were the same, like the White House, the Senate and Congress being the same party?  Would it mean that the only control would be the SCOTUS?   I'm aware that from time to time your vote could cause a change in that, but what about in between?

when the House and the Senate are held by different parties,  there is normally less damage done because they pass fewer laws. But the costs go up or they just fight so badly they never pass a budget. However I'm rather sure that even if one party held both sides of Congress as well as the White House the passed budget would be very expensive as well so there's really no way to solve that. We've passed on so much debt to our children and grandchildren they will never pay it off.  The worst thing would be for one party to hold the White House as well as the majority in the House and a supermajority in the Senate.  Then party politics, IMO, would pass all the laws that their party would desire. To me that is the worst possible outcome.

As we are not going to get rid of the two-party system in the reminder of my lifetime all I can hope for is for each party to hold one side of Congress in order to prevent the more egregious laws from being considered and passed.

We had that from 1/2017 until 1/2019. There are no checks and balances. The party in power rams through as much of their agenda as possible. SCOTUS only takes action when cases are brought before them and even then cases are often sent back to lower courts.

So does that not mean that for the period of time that all three divisions of government are controlled by one party there is little difference from an Authoritarian Regime?

We also had that from January 3, 2009, until January 3, 2011 during the first two years of Obama's first term.

Buzz,  not really because the Supreme Court is supposed to try to be above politics. And the Court does not make laws and only becomes involved when cases are brought to them.  Congress can go out and create laws based on what they want to do and the President has Executive Orders that can be made.
