    The Biden Progressive Leftist Marxist Crackpot Experiment,
    soon to be rejected by voters in 2022 election,
    reminds me of the Prohibition experiment
    whereby a small group got their unworkable ideas implemented
    over the wishes of the populace
    and it made for a lot of pain
    before there was return to resemblance to normalcy.

    1. Ignorant lying fools. Old lost white men clinging on to power at all costs. Aka the old white guard. Sometimes it’s better to keep your mouth shut and to open it and prove your ignorance… it’s your party that’s been tearing this country apart it’s your lies and your delays all just like your orange headed president is broken so many laws he should be shot and hung

  2. Desperate Democrats: Biden’s supposed to give a speech the evening of 11/2/22 about the threat the GOP poses to the future of democracy. He’s trying to exploit the attack on Speaker Pelosi’s husband. Can’t wait to hear Victor’s remarks about it!

  3. David DePape, the guy who attacked Paul Pelosi, sounds like a character out of Tom Wolfe’s book “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test!”

  4. There is a corrrelation with the movie “A Guide for a Married Man,” where in a segment with the actor Joey Bishop when caught by his wife with another woman, he denies, denies and denies.

      I’ve never seen “A Guide for a Married Man”, but there is a similar scene in “Duck Soup”. Groucho is caught red-handed, and his reply is, “Who are you going to believe? Me, or your own eyes?”

    About the last part of your VDH show Nov. 2: Between the incomprehensible ranked ballot system and simple “first past the post”, which tends to break down when there are many candidates, there may be a reasonable compromise which is used in many jurisdictions. This would be a run-off ballot between the two top candidates if the leading candidate gets less than 50% of the vote. It combines the simplicity and transparency of “first past the post” with a more accurate reflection of the will of the electorate.

  6. Ironically, if properly implemented, ranked choice voting eliminates spoilers, which is a substantial improvement upon the current system.

    The solution is to fill in empty slots with the preferences of the candidate that a voter ranks #1, rather than discarding their vote completely as Alaska did.

    @16:28 Another way to express it, Jack, is, “Truth is not a value to the Left.”

    That doesn’t mean that all leftists and progressives lie, all the time. And it doesn’t mean that no conservatives ever lie.

    It means that when it comes down to advancing their agenda, or telling the truth, they will sacrifice the truth, because it is not a value to them.
