Now, you may not want to live here, and you may not be able to find a job here, but it's certainly more affordable than Vancouver!

Edit To Add - I saw the later posts by you, SOS and Bristol after posting this. I'm not proposing you should 'just move' ... I do understand the difficulties. I just don't want those members of BE who aren't familiar with the housing market here to think that everywhere in North America has fixer-uppers for $1M !
Having 300 something million people helps , the US has more on offer on lower-middle range incomes for housing, Canada not so much, where housing is cheap there tends to be a reason like lack of employment.

Not just in the boonies but the cities also. I was told before I emigrated there that there was plenty of work in the construction trade. It seemed true at first and I found work pretty quickly as an electrician. When the winter came and construction halted I was given the pink slip. Construction is seasonal like many outdoor jobs in eastern Canada. It was quite amazing how difficult it was to find any meaningful employment in Montreal unless you had at least a good working knowledge of French which I had not. Eventually I found work as a sort of janitor sweeping floors at Dorval airport. the snow and cold were horrible too It made me think. Why hang around until next spring? Time to bugger off to warmer climes and greener pastures

I don't really care much for Biden. This is his third bite at the apple and he's never gotten very far. He was fine as a Senator and a Vice President but I don't really want him in the big chair. I question his motivations for running right now.

My "circle" is not of the older variety and I don't really know anyone overtly backing Sanders. But that doesn't mean anything. I think he appears bigger than he actually is. Remember he was "second" in 2016 not because he got there through hard-fought stacked primary, but because Hillary and her name brand recognition cleared the field beforehand, so he automatically became the default anti-Hillary candidate. Sanders is an extremist, an adherent of a demonstrably failed ideology, who attracts some of the worst and nastiest elements on the left. Social media is also a bullhorn for left-wing radicals, and the past few years it poofed them up and made them look both stronger and more numerous than they actually are - which created a lot of "surprise election results nobody saw coming."

Klobuchar is much more moderate and electable. At a brokered convention she is probably someone who could also go down more easily than the others.

She is the best of the lot of them and even speaks and looks Presidential but the Dems have occasionally had a death wish at election times. They'll send Bernie or Liz to take on Trump. Biden looks old and confused. If he were on a golf course he would probably start hitting balls back to the starters office instead of towards the 9th hole. Buttigieg AKA "the boy" wont get anywhere with the black or Hispanic vote. I doubt Bloomberg and Steyer also. Just a couple of old white billionaires trying to buy the vote which never has happened before in California and it's this State which will count the most.

The pro-rape Republican party has expanded its platform to buggery of boys and men. There is no sexual assault too disgusting for the Republican party to get behind (ooohh).

Is this guy going to run the investigation of Hunter Biden? I mean that's not weird at all, right? Trump says he's okay, right? I think it will be fine as long as the men use the buddy system when using the Capitol toilets.

Donald Trump. The president who restored hope to men with unfortunate penii. Now men, like Jim Jordan, can look down at their Mario Karts (small but not freakishly small) and say proudly, "One day I too can be president!"

Well of course! Because men are just jumping at the opportunity to go public about having been buggered by their coach. The dirty little sluts, they're all liars. Or they were asking for it. And they probably liked it. Liars.

Here's Klobuchar on Bill Maher.
I used to be a big fan of Maher, but for some reason I grew tired of watching him, so it was nice last night when I caught his show by accident. I'll try to start watching him again every week.
She sounded pretty good. At the end of this clip, Maher goes off on what seems to be his current 'rant' - that Trump won't leave office if he loses - and he continued that rant well into the main segment of the show. Clearly he's worried!

I've tended to find Maher's positions to be on the mark, and he was saying that the US is not ready for a 'socialist' like Bernie. He also took a brave position defending Bloomberg on the 'stop and frisk' issue. Whatever you think of Maher, he's his own man ...

I can't remember if there was a candidate for a Marijuana party but usually there is one of those too. There were also numerous independents who won ballot access. So if you don't want to vote for Biden or Bloomberg or whomever, you have plenty of other options. Your electorate should send you a voting guide well before election day that lists the candidates who will be on your ballot, and you can research all of them thoroughly and make an informed decision about who suits your preferences.

If your complaint is that none of those other options, actually has a viable chance at winning - I would suggest the problem is your ideology and not the political system.
