You can donate to Political Action Committee that donates money to candidates all across the country and can also spend unlimited money to do whatever they want that's independent of a campaign - which includes running ads for a candidate etc.

That's what should be illegal.

I pray for Trump along the lines of Psalm 109:8

Go on...

Psalm 109 6-19 said:

6
Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7
When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him.
8
May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.
9
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
10
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
11
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
13
May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.
14
May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
15
May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
16
For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted.
17
He loved to pronounce a curse-- may it come on him; he found no pleasure in blessing-- may it be far from him.
18
He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil.
19
May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him.

Kanye running for president just feels like a spoiler for Biden to me. He cant even get on the ballot in like 6 states...

I was listening to a podcast called the Rabbit Hole from The New York Times last week, where they did an episode about QAnon. It seems like it's much more of a community thing for lonely republicans and middle age old people than necessarily just conspiracy nuts.

That's definitely what it is. People would vote for him instead of Biden and that only helps trump.

I wluld have thought Kanye would take votes from the Trump side, not the Biden side. It will divide the lunatic vote, not that of voters with brain cells.
She went and she left me like litter. She took all future summers with her. I lost all my money cuz I tried to bribe her. Now I can only afford an amateur sniper.

There was talk some time back that Trump would dump Pence and name another VP... the whole "you're fired!", on Trump brand / rebranding image thing he is obsessed with. In this matrix glitch of a bug in the algorithm simulation we are living in, I could see this happening and Trump replacing Pence with Kanye.

What the fuck is happening?


The further intellectual meltdown and swan dive into the abyss of large groups of some seriously lost people. Searching for something to hold onto, I think, and finding all the wrong things.
Size matters not.

Niece

Chief of staff
National security advisor
Secretory of state
Former lawyer

And a dozen I知 sure I知 forgetting all day your a nasty piece of work who is incompetent at your job how do people take you seriously? Even if they all have axes to grind a master politician would not leave so many people behind him who want to.

Easy! Clearly, Trump is winning so hard it's causing all the failures, and secretly radical leftist never-trumper losers, out of the woodworks and exposes their radical leftist never-trumper loser selves for all to see.

I mean, clearly that's what's happening. It couldn't possibly be any other explanation. Nothing wrong with The Orange One, nuh uh.
Screw you all, and have a nice day!

I'd argue it isn't even entertainment, because it's pathetic rather than funny or riveting.
But then again, I have never been even the mildest fan of anything Kanye has ever done. I always considered him an extremely overrated narcissist tosser.

You would like to think that no one would take Kanye seriously, but the US already elected Trump, so I壇 believe almost anything could happen now.
