Hey Joe!
You had 8 years in which you and Obama promised to provide hope.
Instead, you allowed the birth of ISIS, armed North Korea with nuclear weapons plus a delivery system, signed a deal with Iran to do the same in less then a decade, gave Crimea to the Russians, widened the gap of earnings between the rich and poor, and weakened the American economy to such an extent that your party still insists that we'll never see growth above 2%.

Americans hope that your hope never happens again.

So if Northam loses people will just all give in en masse to opioids?

Not sure that exact phrasing was thought through.

"Hope and Change" Democrats didn't give Crimea to the Russians; they gave Ukraine to neo-Nazis, who are now in the streets celebrating the WWII era genocide their heroes committed on Poles and Jews. Crimea was already 90% Russian citizenry and the Obama attempt to steal a major Naval Base from Russia's ownership since the 1700s was fluff compared to the Democrat imposed criminal, violent coup in Kiev.

Of course, you're correct here.
Biden's unwise attempt to get his son a high-level job in international commerce by plotting the overthrrow of democratically elected government did not realize his hopes nor those of the American people.

It's better to protect a historic monument and put it in a museum than to waste Conservative donor dollars on attorneys fees the way our leader has. The money donated to pay for our presidents attorney fees could have erected new statues to the heroes of our recent wars, to Law Enforcement's fallen. We have to stop looking backward.

If you reduce taxes on the wealthy who can afford to pay for what they've earned you put the burden of less tax revenue on the middle class and poor to take up the slack. Cuts will have to be made, usually to the poor elderly, the veteran or to children's services because of those tax cuts revenue that pays for services will be less or erased. Those who understand,'robbing Peter to pay Paul', is a con game, will move to more productive states.

Pandering to the loudest voices doesn't always fix the problems. You will keep your statues and your battle WMDs, bad roads, bad schools but you will still have some corporate puppet putting their friends and relatives on the taxpayers payroll. Again industries and families will not move to states that appear to be stuck in the past. If you want a safe place free of gangs change the laws regarding pill mills and arrest and ban all physicians from medical practice who become nothing more than drug dealers for pharmaceutical companies. Blaming one man won't cure a three decades old problem.

Coal is not coming back, no matter who wins, automation and lack of regulations and the closing of brick and mortar stores will create more unemployment. Greed and lack of regulations will create more health and drug problems. Those who vote, need to realize just what your blind loyalty to the party line has done to poor states, to this nation. Research who will cause your state LESS harm because this is what we've come to. Blind party loyalty is what keeps us divided against each other instead of weeding out the corrupt and criminal.

No one is taking your guns. Your statues can stand and you can remain in 1950 forever but the working population will relocate elsewhere, as will your children if you don't have jobs paying above the poverty line, if they can't afford healthcare. Don't vote your personal bias, vote as if the future of your children depended on it. Because it does.
