His policies aren't much different from Obama's. Obama deported more people a year than any US president in history, including Trump. He killed more people with drones than anyone in history. Blew up a staggering number of schools and hospitals. The difference is Trump is openly a bigot while previous presidents tried to keep it under their hat.

If Trump loses to Biden, nothing will actually change except liberals will stop caring about the crimes of the state because their guy will be in the driving seat.

Maybe Biden will let trans people back in the military so they can participate in killing muslim kids again and maybe he'll go back to negotiating with Iran, and certainly he'll pay lip service to the climate; while continuing to pollute the shit out of it. But nothing will actually change.

he loses- supporters will throw a fit for a few days then his replacement will capitulate. after that; business as usual.

I doubt that the American people will lay down and let the alt-right and our joke of a government walk all over them for another full four years.

they loved it for the past 30 years

Which is kind of sad, because I wouldn't mind seeing AOC in office.

The way I see it, if the Cubans, Libyans, Chinese, Haitians, ect. could overthrow their leaders, so can we. I understand that their situations were all much worse, but it's only a matter of time before someone tries to declare themselves President for Life. I'll probably be old and dying by the time that happens, but I don't want to take any chances. Our grandchildren shouldn't be left picking up the pieces of our broken nation and ruined planet.

We've all spent the past 3 years dealing with his shit. We've been counting down the days until he is finally gone, and wishing silently that someone would just take his ass out already. We're trying to be optimistic that after 2020, we'll never have to hear from him again. Him being elected a second time would be the breaking point for many people, especially those who have been directly impacted by his policies.

We all knew Trump was bad when he was elected. There were protests, but there was not the anger necessary for a full revolt. Now that we have all experienced Trump's America, I think it's safe to say that nobody except the alt-right wants to live through it again.

And will all due respect, normality doesn't mean shit. Batista ruled over Cuba for 19 years. Ceausescu ruled over Romania for 24 years. Marcos ruled for 22 years.

Even if Trump will only be in power for 4 more years, sooner or later someone worse will take his place.

It's never too early or too late for a rebellion.
