The US is considered to be at full employment and employers are hiring. Lower paid Americans are being lifted up into higher paying jobs

Thanks Joe!

I guess you’re not paying any attention to what’s coming out in the J6 investigation

you’re comparing a democratic primary to a general midterm. makes sense. i guess that’s better for you than, you know, answering the question.

biden’s not worried about polls? Biden is making fake
claims of racist voting laws,,and trying to undo the fillibuster which the democrats lived last year, in desperate response to the polls.

Well, Biden himself may. it be worried as he’s too busy soiling himself. His handlers are terrified, and with good reason.

Stock market Nd unemployment are in fine shape, but net wages declining because of insane inflation. inflation that the administration said was transitory and a high class problem.

Democrats on average gave Biden a “B+” for his overall job performance, compared to the “B” Republicans gave Trump in 2018. Republicans gave Biden a “D” this year, compared to the “F” Democrats gave the 45th president four years ago.

And by the way
A new poll shows 69% of Americans OPPOSE the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

ronnie knows you think biden is better than trump.

i don’t expect to see that happen. but it’s not a political question, it’s constitutional. nowhere in the constitution could a rational person find justification for that being a federal issue. “search and seizure”? come on.

SCOTUS shouldn’t care about polls or popularity, only about constitutionality.

overturning roe, wouldn’t mean abortion is outlawed. it would
mean the states get to decide, which is where it should be decided. the constitution lists things that are federal issues, and specifies that everything else is a state issue. even if it ever gets overturned, many states would still offer it. not a huge deal.

almost the same percentage (67%) that do t approve of Biden in Quinnipiacs latest poll.

so 69% is a lock to you, but 67% is meaningless. interesting logic there.

Trump's draft Executive Order for the Secretary of Defense to use the military to seize the voting machines was dated Dec. 16th. Then two days later Dec. 18th, the Pentagon stops briefing the Biden transition team. The coup d'etat was already in motion before January 6th

Christian nationalism is still thriving — and is a force for returning Trump to power


They believe that masks and vaccinations violate religious freedom, that the participants in the Jan. 6 capitol riot were proud patriots, and the Biden administration is evil and illegitimate

.
Christian nationalists believe that America is Christian and Trump is their best hope to keep it that way

I love this one

"Donald Trump represented what we stand for as a nation"
You go to flyover country and people have good moral values. They love the Lord and they want the best for the country. And that's what Donald Trump tapped into. That's what he represented."

Classic attack on the OTHERS !

But every other normal person in the World understand“ Trump is not a moral man. Americans You have known that since he Ran the 1st time! . but his supporters See Trump as General Maximus

so you support politicians who say more gun laws are the answer, but you can’t conceive of a hypothetical law that would have prevented that crime. which necessarily means, you cannot explain why you support those politicians, other than the fact that you believe everything said by everyone who has a D next to their name

now, can you justify york comment that christian nationalists are “closely aligned” with muslim radicals? or is that another thing you heard a democrat say, and therefore you blindly believe it?

The Bible is a best seller. The world's number one best seller. Not sure that merely being a best seller qualifies for being part of public school curriculums.

Perhaps if you don’t want your tax dollars to help the poor, then stop saying you want a country based on Christian values, because you don’t.

Help the poor to do what? To comfortably remain poor? What was Jesus's true concern? To make everyone equally comfortable? To make everyone materially equal? Did he want human government to solve all of humanity's needs and problems? Did he want a world in which there was no need for God?

Separating Christ's values from "Christian values" gives the lie to anyone who professes a secular government based on "Christian values."

Christ taught a charity that is personal, not governmental. Christ did not try to reform government, nor support movements that would make the government a means to solve the material needs of humanity.

When he said to give Caesar what was owed to Caesar, he did not tell us to give Caesar your soul. He did not tell us to become dependent on Caesar. Your soul, your essence, your fundamental self belongs to him, to God. No matter under what governmental system by which you happen to be ruled.

That is the true Christian value. And a true Christian would speak that message, not tell us to worship and depend on the manna given to us by a secular society.

I don't know how deeply felt were Jimmy Carter's Christian values. Nor even, how deep is the faith of most of those who profess to be Christians.
