Biden Rallies

truthfultruthful Member Posts: 2,032 ✭✭✭✭
Did you see the photos of Biden's Warm Springs rally speech? There were barely enough people there to account for his staff, security, and the media. Looked like they didn't expect much of a crowd either. The venue looked the size of somebody's back yard.  Meanwhile tickets to Trump rallies continue to fly out the door by the 10s of 1000s. Ahhh, but the polls say Biden is a shoe in. Sure.

    Yes but they were social distancing.  Did you see the circles people were supposed to stand in?  I have seen more people standing in line to get a flu shot.

    It was too early. Biden supporters were still in bed.

    I was listening to a radio station out of Tampa around 2 am this morning and they said Bidden was doing an appearance today in Tampa but no one knew where. It was some kind of secret and he was just going to show up.

    He didn't know where either, so it's a wash.

    Biden and his supporters abound in Philadelphia. They are all over the news.

    Trump rallies are filled with people, some waiting for hours for it to begin, excitement, and optimism for the future.  Never before have I heard a crowd at a political rally shout "WE LOVE YOU" over and over!
    A Biden rally has very few in attendance, no applause, no excitement and a total message of doom and gloom. 

    Who the people want as president is clear ....... Trump will win again and the people will win again and American will win again .... none are tired of winning!!!


    If one needs a better contrast to governing styles, one need only look at the above picture and a Trump rally.
    One is a candidate who trusts people to do what they believe is best for themselves.

    The other is a candidate who would exercise control over you for your own good.

    CS Lewis said it well:

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”



    Voltaire had a different take:
    The best government is a benevolent tyranny tempered by an occasional assassination.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    and you just have to wonder,,, how much someone got paid to set up that rally, likely 6 figures for couple dozen chairs and toilet paper circles, my guess just another way to either make money or pay off a debt to someone.......

    and if you watched the video clip of JB walking into the place and up to the podium,  there was more laughing than cheering
