  1. Let me @skillzdadirecta your attention to how I see this election: Trump saw the call earlier for @Joe Biden as @Mr.Vic20 President-Elect and said @BloodyHell. Sure, he wanted to be a @CastlevaniaNut18 but unfortunately for him this is a democracy, not a monarchy. As American @CitizenVectrons, it was our duty to put new leadership into the White House even if it was as laborious as pushing a skyscraper up a @SlipperySlope. We couldn't just let bad things happening drive us to @Spawn_of_Apathy. We had to wait as the results @Slugged along, yet our patience paid off. Biden won @Three

  2. There is never a guarantee you’ll get a Schadenfreude Day like this. There are election years like 2016, where you just have to sit there with gritted teeth while Billy Bob Joe from Bumblescum celebrates the election results with hoots and hollers and lynching a black man. But not this year. No, this time Donald Trump has to eat shit from a man old enough to be my grandfather. It has been four long, agonizing, and stupid years, so you better believe I am going summon every single petty, misguided instinct within me to bask in the glow of this defeat. You lo

  3. Today is such a special day in so many ways. It’s the first day where everyone is finally feeling comfortable enough to celebrate a Biden victory. And for me it’s my 400th day without alcohol. I’m so happy with myself and the world right now that I feel like crying. This is a good day.

  4. I'd like to give thanks to our PA residents. @Chris-, @Greatoneshere, @marioandsonic, @MarSolo. Thank you for helping push this victory over the line. I know there are other PA peeps here but I can't remember every single one right this second as I write this on my phone while walking my dogs. Special shout-out to our resident Libertarian @mclumber1 for setting aside his preferences and voting for the greater good in his swing state. @Remarkableriotsgets a shout-out here too. Shout-outs and thanks to @Commissar SFLUFANSFLUFAN, @Joe, and others who I can't remember speci

  5. So I'm visiting my family this weekend for a hunting trip and gods, this is another world here. Trump flags everywhere. FUCKING EVERYWHERE. I haven't see a single Biden sign. My dad has two in his shop. Hanging next to the Confederate flag. I asked him if that was his hall of losers up in the rafters.

  6. The 7 people i took to the polls for the general asked if I could take them for the runoff. I agreed, of course, and asked if they had any friends or family that needed a ride as well. We'll see what happens.

  7. I want to thank everyone’s contributions to this thread. It was the most concentrated outlet of information. I haven’t needed to watch a single minute of TV to follow along...and the fucking memes were amazing. Funny story - I was relaying information from this thread to my wife, who was glued to CNN, faster than she was getting it. So she asked me where I was getting the info from - So I tell her a video game message board I go on. She legit LOL’d at me. As it continued and time went on, she shut off the TV and would ask me every 1/2hr “what is everyone on that board saying”.

  8. I'm probably going to call it a night at 10pm, largely because I'm beyond the point of concern. But - I will say this to you all. No matter the outcome of this thing in the next few hours or days, you will always have a "home" in our little community. You will always have a sympathetic ear to vent about what's going on in the world. I can't change or control everything that goes on out there, but I can absolutely control what's going on in here, and I fully intend for this place to remain your "safe harbor" during these times that try our souls. This is my

  9. I'm very worried, not just about the election, but about what everything leading up to this moment means for the future of the country. The fact that literally anybody with eyes or ears thinks that Donald Trump should be president is itself insane. And after four years of watching things spiral helplessly out of control, in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and the worst economic recession in generations, to still throw your support behind him and the sycophantic republicans in congress is essentially malicious and sociopathic. I've always been hard left, but to some extent I thought that

  11. If it gets called for Biden, I will open a bottle of Wild Turkey. If it gets called for Trump, I will open a bottle of Wild Turkey. The only difference will be whether I also grab a glass.

  12. Alright, first off, I apologize for being completely unstable last night. I should be glad I didn't do any drinking... Anyway, let me sum up my thoughts as of now: POSITIVES: --As of now, if looks like mail-in and early voting will give Biden the votes he needs to pull off the win from behind. And Trump getting booted from the WH is a much, MUCH needed victory, especially with how 2020 has gone. --There is still a chance that the Senate would be split 50/50. Assuming Biden wins, while this means the Dems won't get the majority like we hoped, it would at lea

  14. I'm almost in tears. It just feels so good to hear a president speak with empathy. Who doesn't demonize "the other." And who speaks coherently. I just can't really articulate how good this feels right now.

  15. I say this unto you, my friends: Savor the victory of today's battle, but never forget that this long war still rages on.

  18. OK - I left a message using a high-pitched voice that I saw 6 midgets hiding under a trenchcoat in a voting booth and that it must be investigated immediately! I signed off with "Durka Durka Muhammed Jihad!"

  21. I don't know how old you are but most of rural America was Democrat until the late 60's. You know what flipped them to Republicanism? THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. Look up "The Southern Strategy" and then come back. Racism was a KEY factor in flipping white rural voters. Rich Whites have exploited Poor Whites since this Country's founding by treating them slightly better than Blacks, Native Americans, Hispanics and even other "White" immigrants like The Irish and Italians by telling them that THESE groups are responsible for their lot in life and they fall for it EVERYTIME. How else could a rich

  22. +1 to the lurkers who enjoy the conversations and (mostly) good discussions. Post rarely and randomly, and might not be on here every day, but probably a week hasn't gone by in years where I don't log in and check out the latest news/discussion. I'm trying to remember when I first started lurking, probably back around 2001 on the old IGN boards.

  23. They aren't Civil War monuments. They are Jim Crow monuments, designed to put African Americans in their place and remind them that they are inferior to Southern whites.

  24. No my friend, if Biden wins, I will buy you your copy of Pikmin 3. And if he doesn't then I'm DEFINITLY buying you a copy to keep you busy! So basically I've now decided I'm buying your copy, physical or digital, what's your flavor?

  25. Ughhhhhhh. I refused to post for months, deciding to give up on D1P entirely, and I'd been good just being a lurker. I have not been missed, so the decision was a good one. Been following the posts on this board closely, as I always have, in the interim. But to suggest Trump won't try every single thing at his disposal once he loses the election (yep, I think he will lose), absent a Biden landslide, is hilarious. The only question to be asked is, once Biden wins the election, will any or all of Trump's post election chicanery succeed? It's a legitimate question, one we'

  26. I've contacted the Minnesota DFL to be a phone/text bank volunteer this weekend to get the word out that they need to vote in person after the Federal court ruling.
