      Your post got me thinking. Assuming there are actually debates, will Trump be able to control himself? If Biden says some cringe worthy stuff that makes his dementia obvious will Trump let it go or pile on and possibly turn some people off? I could see Trump making faces while Biden rambles on incoherently, when the smart play would be to look sad or sympathetic. I don’t know if he has that in him though. This is more of what I’d expect:

      I think thats why the people that like him like him. Hes a human being. When he hears BS he treats it as such

        Exactly....he calls a spade a spade. Period. As far as Ox's comment about not being able to watch---while I sympathize with the fact that dementia is a horrible & sad affliction, you can bet your arse I will be watching with popcorn in hand. Not to see Joe blunder and make a total embarrassment of himself....on the contrary, I would prefer to see him have a good night as far as coherency goes. I just want to watch and enjoy Trump cleaning his lunch with facts, figures, condemnation of Biden's past actions & inactions, all his failures, etc, etc.

        Suffice it to say I want to watch Trump destroy & obliterate the corrupt jackass when he's(Joe) at his best. I do feel sorry for Joe for the mental erosion he's going through, but as you noted above--he is not a good man. Never has been. He's been corrupt his entire life and accomplished nothing worthwhile in his govt career.

        Off-topic but Joe is yet another piece of solid proof supporting term limits. Best left for another thread one day.

          This needs more than just a thumps up.

          That being said, Trump is spending trillions a month and begging for more. Yet another hold your nose election.

          The low-spending ship has sailed, no matter who is in office. Stop expecting differently.

            Not sure how we can spend low with where this country is. Too much bloat and uneeded programs.

                All of that shouldn't matter when we have a choice between capitalism and socialism

                Turdbreath, a conservative will likely never be elected as President again. Even Reagan overspent and blew the budget. If even Reagan couldn't/wouldn't do it, who the hell would?

                  You can facepalm your brains out, the overspending isn't stopping no matter who is elected. It's a runaway train, where it stops nobody knows.

                    there's only one place this train goes, Argentina or Greece.

                    I like most of what this guy has done.

                    A trllliom dollars a month deficit is not one of them.

                      No one here disagrees with you.

                      The debt is 25+ trillion. At this point, what difference will it make when it's 30 trillion? 50 trillion? 100 trillion?

                        How do we even stop that debt? Im not sure anyone could unless massive cuts were made. Cuts that will never happen because of the sheer amount of bureaucracy

                        It’s not the bureaucracy. Almost 2/3 of the total federal spending goes to Social Security, Health care, and Defense/International Security. (And that’s in order of percentage of spending.) Add in another 16%, split roughly evenly between safety net programs (welfare, food stamps, etc.) and interest on the debt and that gets you to around 80%, leaving 20% to spend on everything else. Until we find a way to get Social Security back paying for itself and get Health Care figured out, it cannot be fixed.

                          @Detroitgator and I have agreed on this: the only religion these politicians will find will come from the markets.

                            Not with a two party system...Ox you are spot on. There will be Spend...Spend...Spend...or Spend Lite.

                            Does anyone think someone like Rand Paul has a chance? Let alone Ron?
