According to Forbes Magazine, of the 50 richest families in America, 28 mainly donate to Republicans and only seven contribute mainly to Democrats. Not all families stay on the same side of the political spectrum — 15 support candidates from both parties.

Wrong again, lorenzokb.

There may be more middle-class families voting Democrat, and certainly a majority of college educated folks vote Democrat.

"Jim Crow JoE" is not a new name for Joe Biden, I have learned.
Not so new that Diamond & Silk invented the moniker, as I believed today when I saw Diamond & Silk use "Jim Crow JoE" for JoE Biden, when they addressed the incoming ten's of thousands of President Trump's Rally supporters in Tulsa, OK as they helped warm up the crowd.

Google of "Jim Crow JoE" results show Biden earned that moniker as Senator:

My, my, Joe seems to have stirred up a number of negative feelings, not only when he told so many "they are not really Black" if they wonder who to vote for in November 2020... more to come, no doubt.


 For those who recently found out they may be "not Black", according to "Jim Crow JoE" (so dubbed by 'Diamond & Silk" today in their address to the massive crowd of Trump Supporters in Tulsa, OK), here is the link you have been looking for:

  Seriously, Black or not Black, all are welcomed by our President. Tune in and
enjoy the Rally, ongoing at this time, with the President expected shortly, as the Rally Participants continue to flow into the arena.

  Enjoy!

I'd go third party if the nation wasn't so polarized one way or the other but given the choices available...

Clinton has only herself to blame for her lose, not Russia, The FBI, no one but herself and her own self entitlement. She felt and probably still feels she really did nothing wrong, that she ran an open and honest campaign. I would out voted for her, but I just could not trust her. For me that was the deciding factor. The Democrats will continue to blame everything and everybody for their lose. When in fact they took so many people and States for granted. While Trump has said some outrageous things during his campaign, at least it was honest and not scripted by some damn speech writers with talking points. He spoken to what a lot of us were feeling but in our "PC" climate we never expressed openly. It is people like Clinton who have put this country in the shape that it is in and there was just now way she could convince me that she could or would fix anything. What we needed was a Washington Outsider. If Trump blows the system up so be it. Maybe it can be re-built into something better. So if the Democrats want to blame Russia and their hacking so be it. The real blame lays at the feet of the career Washington Insiders like Clinton. I may not agree with our President-elect on everything he says or is going to do, but at least he will be honest about what he does.     

Yeah.  Life.  Long.  Democrat.

How’s that blowing up the system working for you?

In what ways is the nation "so polarized"?

I know that's a phrase that, at this point, I've heard more than a thousand times, and repeating it ad nauseam doesn't make it any more true.

If you mean that the American populace has differing points of view on issues, well, we've been like that since before the ink on the Constitution even dried. Most to the point, the U.S. is in no way "more polarized" than at previous times in our history. Take, for example, the period between 1861-1865...

A lot of people arguing and declaiming on social media sites isn't an example of "polarization." It's simply an example of social media being what it is.

I think there's a strong argument that political discourse is "so polarized," to a point where considered, nuanced opinions are both the exception rather than the rule and generally have to be sought out. Consider the long list of otherwise innocuous actions that can now be considered a political statement, at least to some. Meanwhile, prominent political figures run the risk of receiving widespread and extended critiscism for minor human foibles, regardless of their political party. You are the history expert so you know much better than I do how that the current climate compares to the rest of history, but my feeling is that in general people are more opinionated and less informed than they were a decade ago.

  So, Jim, which way are you planning to vote?
 
  Will you vote: Pro Biden/Unknown... or Anti Biden/Unknown... ?

  Do you believe everything Joe Biden says?  Of course not.

  Do you believe anything Joe Biden has said he will do?  

  Do you believe 'whoever' will actually make decisions, hiding behind JoE's "name". will make the decisions with which you wholly Agree and Support?
  
  If so, WHY?  What makes you believe as you believe?

  Is there ANYTHING JoE Biden has actually DONE, Completed, Finished, that you wholeheartedly agreed, which you expected him to do? Something those who voted for Biden expected, believed he would accomplish when they cast their Ballot for JoE? (Voters, not Bankers, I mean)?

  Is Susan Rice a sound, honest, decision maker who by her past actions speaks for YOU... A person you willingly trust with Your Future?

I think both political parties are polarized, or heading that way, as moderates from both parties have either been voted out of office or declined to run for another term.

I think the current sense of polarization is a byproduct of the 24/7 news cycle, social media, bot farms, and our addiction to personal devices and computers.  We are bombarded with 1,000’s of images daily, and unfortunately a lot of people lack the emotional maturity and/or spiritual tranquility to look past all that.

America is too fucking stupid to put on masks and practice social distancing.  Too stupid to consider a day glo orange pussy grabber might not be suited for the office of POTUS.  We have the government we deserve, because we are the ones who elected them.  We see our image in the mirror and hate it.  But the reflection that government provides will never change until we do first.

Everybody wants to change the world
But one thing's clear
No one ever wants to change themselves
That's the way things are
All because we hate the buzzkill
Jaded when we need to feel
But we can change it all if you really want it - Nothing More
