I hear you expressed a measure of outrage that some of the GOP sycophants are being "blacklisted". Odd🤔, I don't recall hearing your moral outrage when Dems were openly blacklisting progressives if they worked on a campaign against a sitting establishment Dem.

this (Kamala Harris) is the kind of thing the USA needs right now,something to be proud of..I really hope Trump doesn't win,but what I don't get Trump is actually rigging the election, I hear a lot of outrage but no action...The outcome of this election is going to be a mess (thanks to Trump and criminal friends)and Trump is going to loose and saying the election is not legal and all those flat earthers,science deniers,vaccination deniers, Trumpers going to believe him or doubt the election outcome...really hope this works out
