Bill Clinton owned up to the mistake with that bill, admitted him signing that bill made the problem worse.

"I signed a bill that made the problem worse," Clinton told an audience at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's annual meeting in Philadelphia. "And I want to admit it."


I for one would like to see complete reform of the US prison system top to bottom.

We're talking about Biden here, not Trump.

Biden has been in politics for the best part of 50 years and is now seeking election to the highest political office in the land. So as a sign of what is to come, what exactly have been his "achievements" during his political career to justify this promotion? The 1994 Crime Bill is one of his "achievements". Next.

63% of Canadian's support Joe Biden.

But then when the US President is calling Canada a national security threat more than once, that tends not to make Canadian's happy.
My first reaction to this is - only 63% ?!

I've just watched footage of Biden's recent poorly attended drive-in speech, titled: "Joe Biden Gives the Worst Speech Ever". Something fake media didn't show that this video does, is Biden did it with a teleprompter.

There certainly are predators on the streets who prey on the vulnerable, but he still didn't call them super-predators as per your claim...

I'm not sure what you are looking for here. There ARE predators on the street; I don't think that is in dispute. In context, making a statement about there being bad people on the street doesn't seem like a big issue.

My point is there isn't really any discernible difference between predators and super predators.

The result of the 1994 crime bill that he helped form, was it devastated the black community. And then this year he has the arrogance and cheek to come out with his "you aint black" remark to those black voters who are unsure about whether to vote for him.

He has admitted that the old crime bill was a bad idea. I don't think it's unreasonable to believe that someone can change their mind over time and regret decisions made previously. Admitting to mistakes ought to be a positive thing. I have no issue with his comments in the vein of 'you ain't black'. I don't think it was a great thing to say, but I think I understand what he was trying to say.

As limey said, the fact is Biden is simply the not Trump option. His political record is almost irrelevant. Personally, I would have preferred Yang or Bernie (preferably both).

The former are more likely to be opportunists, the latter professionally skilled or experienced.

'Fake media'? 'Worst speech ever' Haha...

I can't remember the last time any media outlet showed the teleprompter that their newsreaders were using... And those people are professionals, so I'd absolutely expect politicians to use them where possible. Often, there's a lecturn for them to keep their notes on instead. If Trump actually used one, maybe he'd stay on-message for longer...

Ironically, when Trump uses a teleprompter he gets far more praise because he doesn't go off message!

To some extent I agree. Biden's political record is almost irrelevant because he is just an easily manipulable front for a very toxic, destructive and proven-to-never-work, and very intolerant ideology that seeks to dissolve the nation state and destroy the USA. But then Biden as the front has some very questionable credentials if he is now pretending to be friendly to black voter interests - which are now being peddled in order to secure the black vote. The overwhelming majority of Democratic party supporters believe they "are doing the right thing" and supporting the "good side" but unfortunately they are what are known as "useful idiots". On the bright side, and as we shall see, very many have been red pilled and have walked away, joining the silent majority who will vote for Trump.

Trump on the other hand while publically appearing to be an argumentative buffoon, he is authentic, and has the interests of all Americans in his heart. He is a strong leader and does not yield to opponents such as China and Iran, he demands that everyone pull their weight to support world peace, and his is not a warmonger. And he believes in preserving the USA, the nation state, it's constitution, it's traditions and it's values.

The thing Trump is missing this time is an opponent as depraved as the last one, Biden comes across more as doddery and ineffective. Not the same level of motivation as Hillary engendered.

True. But then people have seen what has gone on these last 4 years with the lefts antics to resist Trump every step of the way. But even so, I'm sure this election is going to be a close one.
