If Trump does indeed fake an injury? Oh that would be the funniest thing, historically funny, that this world has ever seen!
Anderson Cooper reporting breaking news in late October 2020:

"President Trump has withdrawn from the race for president. He says his reason is.... excuse me, is this a joke? He is saying he can't run for president anymore because of, umm, bone spurs."

only in America is Biden or any democrat left wing.

We have two right wing parties with the far right party hauling *** as fast as they can to fascism. Then we got the Democrats trying to bargain with them.
This whole post is false




The party has been moving left since 2008. The only people that think that the Democratic Party is a conservative party are people making bad faith attacks that only take into account economics and ignore that America has a different governmental structure that most of the world.

Don't be one of those people.

The Dems are far from perfect, but all things considered they are a left wing party.

To be fair, the GOP is a reactionary Party while the Democratic Party is, by global standards, a mix of center right and the center but with a growing cadre of bonafide center left politicians like AOC and Lee Carter.

It is absurd how far to the right the center is in America Politics, especially on economic issues, but if we keep up direct action and organizing we can change the definition of normal, moderate and reasonable. Our actions will definite the terrain of a Biden Presidency and what will, presumably, be an open 2024. If we can shut down enough ports, shut down airports, organize sectors of workers and push State and local officials into accommodating our public spending and criminal legal system demands, moderate Democrats and capital will perceive AOC to be moderate. If we do nothing, she’ll be perceived as radical.

While probably not true, if Trump were to drop out that would be trouble for Biden
You're not wrong. I still think Trump has a chance since the electoral college favors Republicans and their voter suppression efforts. Throw in a semi-competent person and it makes the uphill battle for the Democrats even more difficult.

Actually I believe the Nordic left wing countries have been moving right for decades now

The Nordic social democratic parties are not all the left wing parties in Europe. Remember, since other countries have parliamentary systems, he have multiple functioning left wing parties. In the US there is only one.

In the article they map I posted is interactive, each circle represents a political party. So all those blue circles the Dems are left of, are left wing European parties.
