    AOC and her team of Congress people support defunding of police.
    Democrat mayor and governor in Seattle allow “not-democrat” thugs extort money from local businesses.
    Democrat goons in Minneapolis city council formed a veto proof majority and committed to abolish police with no clear plan of how it will be done.
    Goons topple statues of Columbus. I seriously doubt any of these goons voting for a republican.
    How about goons that cancelled “Cops” and took down Gone with the Wind?

    Sorry, mate, but your party owns this and is about to face real silent majority in November.

    Biden is an old vegetable that will say just about anything to get elected. It’s very obvious that he won’t be in condition to run the country and make decisions independently. If you vote for Biden, you are opening up the possibility that people who were not elected will have a heavy influence on the decision making at the very top of the country. I don’t know about you, but I can’t support that.

    Those choices are not mutually exclusive. I see merits to both positions and am comfortable with whichever one society decides is proper for this time and place.

    LOL at 10 points being a "little dip."

    Also, I have to laugh at your sudden urgency of embracing the exact dates of the poll.

    Members of the party certainly do. Hence the Minn Town Council vote to defund

    We should tackle this issue in an organized way. Turn the destruction of confederate memorials into an event.

    Any memorial erected in the Jim Crow or Civil Rights era and subsequently the last decade are fair game. We’ve spent 40M plus in public funds on the latter.

    The state should provide a perimeter and we should allow the public to destroy them.

    It’s unequivocally clear what these specific “memorials” represent, hate. It’s past time we moved on to building a more perfect union.

    The notion that you can find individual members of the political party who support a specific policy position does not mean that the party endorses or supports that policy position. You recognize that, right?

    Yet everyone on the right is a worshiper of the orange man.

    Do you realize that the numbers of people who support this is growing, mainly because many are being bullied into it, or will face the wrath of mass media labeling them “racist”?
    The number of leftists in that party is growing and they are becoming very vocal.

    Thanks for skirting the issue. Is it then safe to assume you would also support the removal of everything to do with Martin Luther King if as you claim, "society decides it is proper for this time and place"?

    I am all for it as long as I get to decide which monuments to destroy.

    Prior to Europeans, North America was not a peaceful paradise. Quite the opposite.

    Yep.
    Nobody seems to be concerned about the opinion of real majority. So, everyone who thinks something is offensive should go and destroy the things that make they feel uncomfortable. Oh, and steal from local businesses to compensate for your personal time.
    I owe money for student loans.
    It offends me.
    As a result, I should be allowed to release myself from my obligation and every goon should support my decision.

    What difference would it make how violent they were prior to 'our' arrival?

    These fools who toppled Columbus statues don’t realize that he was terrorizing Central Americans and if those Central Americans could easily go to other territories they’d be ripping the hearts out of native Americans from the north. Or north native Americans would be massacring Indians from Central America. Toppling Columbus in Boston with claims that it offends local native Americans is beyond ignorant!

    The indigenous population did horrible things to each other.....should not be celebrated. I won't live your "white guilt". Most Americans celebrate our history and are quite happy the way things turned out!

    When you say, "the numbers are growing," I would agree only to the extent that the policy position went from the low single digits before the protests to the low teens.

    But it has not grown any further.
