Red or blue the election is among us!

I hope you got your votes in.

It's not looking pretty for Trump with Dixville Notch, a tiny New Hampshire township, making their results the first known. With all votes tallied, it was 5 to 0 in Biden's favor. :D

seems to me that the left will be getting their way for the next 4 years, gonna be interesting to see if anything changes other than they won't have Trump to blame

Not necessarily.

Possibly, just two, even if Biden is declared the winner of the 2020 Presidential elections.

If the Republicans hold the Senate majority now, and possibly gain a seat or two in the 2022 midterms with the ~34 being up for re/election while gaining the majority in Congress as they have made waves in 2020 there, bills could fly through to Biden.

Now, the only thing that can be done here is a presidential veto from Biden. Then, it would go back to the Senate and Congress requiring 2/3rds vote from each to pass, which could be unachievable. However, if both Senate and Congress are working for the people, a veto would be very unpopular for the reelection of a sitting Democrat Senator or Congressperson and even another Democrat president in 2024 as they are going against the will of the majority that they are representing in those bills.

I'd like to see how Biden would spin a veto to make it so unpopular where they couldn't sway moderate Democrats, essentially fracturing the party, to get the 2/3rds needed to override Biden and get things done.

Otherwise, it's a stalemate for the remaining 2 years until 2024, wherein a Republican ought to win with a sweep of everything as nothing could possibly get done and there will be angry people on both sides of the aisle.

Well it seems like Biden might be on his way to the Oval Office.
I'm just very curious whether Biden will be very military friendly toward the active military personnel like President Trump has been.

Obama left it in shambles, firing hundreds of generals.

We'll see the direction Biden takes it though...

Thanks.
but to tell you the truth Joe Biden's son was kicked out of the military so my honest opinion he is not going to be very favorable toward the military and especially those that are wearing some brass.
Luckily we can find out very easily now whom he gets rid of in the military and also who resigns and who takes retirement.
I don't have the link on it but I'm sure that there's a link like there was for Obama.
