Editor: The choice for president of the United States is much more than a contest between two candidates. Joe Biden and Donald Trump are on the ballot in 2020, except the choice is not between two men, but vastly different ideologies.

Liberals desire government control over everything affecting your life. Conservatives believe individuals should be allowed as much freedom as possible to control his or her future. Liberal policies have been on display for many years in states like California, Oregon, Washington, New Jersey and New York. Conservative states include Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Arizona and South Dakota. In America we allow states to make most of the rules we live by. Instead of listening to biased messaging from both sides, including media personalities, sports, and entertainment celebrities, look at what policies each side has implemented. If you believe the way they do it in California or New York is the correct approach, then vote for Biden. If you think Wyoming or South Dakota better mirror your views, vote for Trump.

Both men are flawed, so unless God himself is on the ballot, you will have a president who has and will make mistakes. Your selection has never been more important and the choices more different. Your choice will steer this great nation going forward. Please choose wisely; our futures depend upon it.

Steve, I have analyzed the candidates and chosen Donald Trump as being the one to vote for. Sadly, Joe Biden seems to have a faltering memory. That's not good for someone wanting to lead our country.


Sorry to see just how much difficulty you're going to have when President Biden is elected by the American people - something trump never experienced. But don't you worry President Biden will make it all better and even see to it you have access to mental health care.


Speaking of mental health. I see you stopped taking your medications again!

'Your"welcome. This is way past Medication assistance. This patient is beyond help!!


"Your" (sic) - What is it with my fans and their fascination with my health? I am humbled by their love and concern but need to reassure them there is no problem with my taking my "meds." Thank you again for your continuing love, concern and adoration.


Rovr, with all the numerous fans you claim to have they all agree on one thing. You have serious mental issues that need immediate attention.


Once again, a seriously misguided soul supports the lying, con-man currently squatting in our White House.

On Tuesday evening the fool made the claim the coronavirus will, with or without a vaccine, just “go away” because of what he calls “herd mentality.” To make certain there is no confusion here is the idiot’s actual quotes, “And you’ll develop – you’ll develop herd – like a herd mentality. It’s going to be – it’s going to be herd-developed, and that’s going to happen. That will all happen. I think it will go away very quickly.”

What the fool was most likely – you never know with him – trying to discuss is herd immunity, a seriously flawed concept that could lead to the deaths of as many as 6.6 million Americans, in addition to the nearly 200,000 Americans who have already died because of trump’s ineptitude. Herd immunity requires about 70% of the population to develop antibodies which equates to an enormous death toll in the process. For the mathematically challenged let’s look at the figures – with a population of around, 315,000,000 70% would mean 220,500,000 American would have to be infected with COVID-19. Considering our present rate of death from those infected is at 3% that would mean 6,615,00 Americans would have to die in the name of herd immunity.

Just based on the above example the only logical choice to protect American is to vote Biden/Harris.

Too old for this

At least he was able to complete a sentence, no matter how ridiculous it sounded.


You are a laugh riot! Here you, Skippy -

When asked what his plan would be for the next four years if, God forbid, he be re-appointed, our stable genius said, “… I think, I think, it would be, I think it would be very, very, I think we’d have a very, very solid, we would continue what we are doing and we have other things on our plate…” 27 August 2020
