2004 election was held during the 4 months that the Iraq War appeared to be going well.

It was the first time I was able to vote and I unfortunately fell for my dad's spiel of "You don't switch horses in the middle of the race." Race here meaning "war."

Absolutely. We were in the throes of nationalism in 2004 by them lying to the population about WMDs.

2000 Brooks Brothers Riot changed our timeline. And Gore and the Dems conceded “for the good of the nation.”

At least that shit would never fly today. ..I hope. They tried in 2020, but we weren’t having that.

Fuck, no wonder they find it so convincing when someone says the vote was stolen.

They know it can be done.

Oh man, imagine if the courts had sided with Gore…


u/phlapjackage May 27 '23

there's a funny/sad SNL skit about this, what if Gore won the election...he's giving his state of the union speech, saying things like, "we've stopped global warming, now we have to worry about all the glaciers getting too big"

Desantis is looking dead in the water at the moment. his only shot is trump straight being locked up in jail


u/Cdf12345 May 27 '23

Careful, that’s what the media said about trump too


u/Diarygirl May 27 '23

Trump didn't have a track record though, and some people thought "What's the worst that could happen?" With DeSantis we know exactly what kind of president he'd be.

Don't underestimate how many fascist supporters go to the polls.


u/thenasch May 27 '23

Keep in mind that would not legally preclude him from running and winning.


u/dj_narwhal May 26 '23

The Iraq war or the Electoral College?


u/UnitGhidorah May 27 '23

Yes, but if Dems won all the time they couldn't have a boogieman and they'd be to blame for all the shit they want to give corporations and the rich. Even when they control everything they have some bad Dems like these two that vote against the party.
