    I'm reading that he's only ponying up for to recount a couple of counties, not nearly enough to reverse the margin he's down by--suggesting this whole thing is one big grift to milk his supporters for donations to cover campaign costs.

    Yeah realizing how long we've been here is fucked up. I've legit spent like half of my life as part of this community. I haven't been into regular-ass rock music for years and years. I might just be lonely, and it's nice to have people you kinda know to talk to about video games and wrestling, because my IRL friends just don't share my level of interest in these things. A place like Reddit is an echo chamber and I get nothing out of it. 
    All that to say, I'm happy I've had you guys to talk to, argue with, and learn from over the past decade plus. I don't have any nostalgia for my childhood and teen years--there was so much that I didn't know how to cope with, and rambling and arguing about my favorite bands and wrestlers and movies, it got me away from that stuff. So, thank you.

    Bruh I have been on this board since I was a fucking teenager. It's called growing up, just cause you skipped that step doesn't mean the rest of us did.
    And sorry Nix, but agreeing to disagree on this stuff is horseshit. I 1000% respect Matt less because "disagreeing politically" is not the same as "I think white people are better than everyone else." If you and Pen wanna be Team Good PR and make everyone shake hands and get along, that's your prerogative. Me? I'm tired of enabling shitheads like this. It's a wonder you still get me to play fantasy football with that moron.

    For what it's worth I dearly agree with several of you on missing the music talk on this place because it's been really hard to match the exact niche of this place anywhere else, but I was also being completely and totally sincere that certain personalities around here made me decide it wasn't worth the effort I was putting into this board anymore. As mentioned, I have been here for 13 years at my count, which as a now 30-year-old man is staggering to me. I do not want to have spent half of my life dealing with these same ignorant people who have shown time and again they are not willing to listen or learn or attempt to change their worldview at all. So I haven't been here, and probably will continue not to be.
    Thanks for coming to my TED Talk, spin some Boston Manor for me.

    This is where you're not understanding, or at least you're phrasing it in a different way than I would. You could say people are voting along party lines insomuch that they're voting against the Republican, but when I hear "voting along party lines", I interpret that as voting *for* a party blindly, not voting *against* a party for personal reasons. To a lot of the population, the GOP in 2020 is a cancer and if someone identifies as part of it, they need to be removed. I don't think it's fair to insult you (or Mike) as a blind Trump supporter, but you look at the two political parties as just that, political parties that must be taken as having some good and some bad. You see a place like this becoming a partisan shitshow, because everybody hates one 'side' and prefers the other. 
    This isn't how I see things. Drawing a picture of the political climate as a linear matter with two "sides" pulling in opposite directions is a huge mistake, and it comes decades of this broken two-party system. Here's a visual representation of how I see it, and even if you think I'm totally off-base, hopefully you can appreciate why I feel so strongly about things.

    I, for one, appreciate how spicy you're willing to get in this thread. Then again, if I still lived in AL where I was surrounded by those fuckers I'd probably be a little spicier myself.

    Win, lose, or draw, the fact that this is so close is really reinforcing my decision to bail on this whole America thing. I'm going to be figuring out the fastest way to graduate possible. This is a country filled with fucking morons, brainwashed from their first day in elementary school.

    Tbh the reason I mostly stopped posting here is I got tired of reading Mike and Harty's stupid fucking takes and catching up on this thread has only reinforced it more.
    Both of you are enormous fucking idiots and have been for as long as I've known you.

    Clearly you haven't read most of this thread.  Anyone who doesn't side with the liberal democrats who patronize this forum is called names and treated like a terrorist.  

    As long as you allow a "Next 4 Years of American Communism" thread to be made if Biden wins, you can do whatever you want with this thread.

    When this is over, I think I will lock this thread as previously suggested. Clearly it's impossible for anyone on either side to discuss this rationally.

    So the minority of rural dipshits should decide what happens to the majority of citizens living in the urban areas?

    Trump just did what literally everyone expected in a close race--proclaim victory for himself, claim any further votes are fraud, and say he's going to get the Supreme Court to throw them out.
    Whether or not they do is a different matter entirely, but the damage is done.

    You do realize CNN and all the other news stations are going to disproportionately report riots compared to peaceful protests, correct? Riots are great ratings, people standing around protesting, not so much.

    I'm not getting into this argument, but I will say I always think it's funny when pro-gun advocates use the argument that most shootings happen with semi-auto pistols. Surely they realize that you're obvious retort to this is "oh, well then we should definitely ban those too"? Do you expect someone to change their tune about gun control because of the style of gun used?

    Yikes! I haven’t really been checking this thread in years because I imagine it’s basically someone posting a link of something stupid Trump said and Mike/Harty figuring out how to defend it. But I saw Andrew’s comment and didn’t know if he was joking around so I went back and read...
     
    Wow! Yikes!
