    If you've been watching the unfiltered news for the past several months years you should have a pretty good idea of what you should be prepared to do. It's quite obvious how the other side feels about any Trump supporter. In all actuality it doesn't matter who wins in Nov. The commies are gonna be commies.

    I'm kind of thinking of buying the new Corvette C8. I've kind of wanted a 'Vette off and on since I was a kid, but somehow never quite owned one; it's kind of cool to see its total re-invention as a mid-engined "affordable supercar". The inevitable post-election stock surge will easily cover the cost.

    That's because business as usual is what will happen no matter how the election goes, as it always has. I assume the same wide-eyed terror was on display here when Obama was elected ("oh my gosh! what're we gonna do?")... if this forum is that old (I'm not sure.)

    Relax: the world isn't really a puppet controlled by a coven of black-robed communist pedophile billionaires, no matter what InfoWars says.

    The world isn't. But Biden is.

    You seem intrigued with infowars and it's utter crap. I would say much more so than anyone else here.
    You'd do well to study the French Revolution in depth paying close attention to the parts where the elites and those who thought they were could not believe the fate that awaited them even as they were led to the guillotine.

    InfoWars is one of the more common sources I see shared or cited around here. I like to keep to familiar terms, out of respect for the readership. "When in Rome" and so forth.

    I've had the misfortune of being in a nation which was going through an actual revolution, and this ain't it. You definitely can't miss it if it's actually happening. Fastest I've ever run to catch a helicopter ride :p

    If in doubt, I would recommend getting a C8. I don't own a Vette, but I do most of our Vette work in the shop. The C8 has a lot of performance for the price. Last month, I spent some time in Pahrump, NV at the Spring Mountain Corvette Driving school going over the C8. It is quite an improvement over the C7.

    Your profile says you've been a member since Jan 24, 2009 so you should be well aware if this forum was filled with "wide-eyed terror" after our first not-really-black president won the 08 election.

    I was still in Florida then but I remember how the streets were filled with wild-eyed republicans (and even some libertarians) going completely crazy in an orgy of rioting, looting, shooting, burning, killing, beating up and even saying really nasty things to any democrats and commies that dared to venture into the streets. Yeah.

    The real danger is if the dems win the POTUS and the senate. Then we will be completely effed. Unfortunately it looks like they have a good chance to win the senate.

    IIRC it looked like that in 2016 as well. It also looked like that in 2018 too.

    Maybe so but I don't remember it being as big an issue in 2016. In 2018 it didn't matter as much because Trump was in office and could veto crap. House or senate did not have the votes to overturn veto's then.

    But it will be a disaster and probably the end of this country as we know it if it happens.

    Though sarcasm is duly noted, what I recall is conservatives grumbling, beotching, and even calling him nasty names (me included), while talking among themselves.

    However, after Bubba passed the Crime Bill, I know of this guy (I hope the statute of limitations has passed) that actually had a target made of a printout of Bubba. And he left it hanging from the tree, and I imagine it got even more peppered by others, later.

    I had a triple black convertible C6 for about six years. An incomparable driving experience! A series of various gremlins began to surface and expand which led to it's passing out of my hands. When I retire in the not too distant future (Sooner if Trump wins! :whew:) I will be on the lookout for a well loved machine like it, improved obviously.

    Being well heeled (Congratulations, BTW.) will do wonders to insulate you from the impending deterioration of the fabric of our society should the puppet Joementia be installed in the Executive. If the Senate is lost by the RINO's and Republicans as well, you may find you must me much more selective in your future investments.

    There is literally no comparison to the O'Bama transitions.

    The grumbling, bitching and name calling could have increased 1 million fold and it still wouldn't have caused anywhere near the economic, societal and emotional cost we've seen since 2016 and going forward. That's a substantial difference and speaks to mindset of the people involved.

    There's going to be some people claiming BS on this but apparently the police are investigating it. It happened in a small town in NH. Turns out not far from where we used to live there. Is this just some local moron being (not) funny or a sign of genuine things to come? Fake or real doesn't really matter. We know that the commies are more than willing and capable to burn you out.

    The link below shows the full letter.

    And Many who are more than capable are hopefully wishing they try.

    One of the dilemmas facing conservatives these days seems to be whether progressives are (1) nose-ringed soyboy Vegan pansexuals? or (2) an elite cadre of ninja operators serving shadowy international supervillain overlords?

    Which is it?
