    Those affluent white neighborhoods you are driving thru can be deceptive. You think they are rich, because they have nice expensive things, but they are actually poor. Many of them are drowning in debt because they can't live within their means. So they think the system is rigged, when they are really just dumbasses (aka lefties). Also, they have little to no connection to the outside world, so they have to base their opinions on what the MSM tells them to think, and they have been brainwashed in college to slant left.

    I have not seen a Biden sign in Alabama yet. There may be a few as we get closer to the election. In my part of town, it is just Trump signs, with no fear of being attacked for having one. If you drive through small towns and into the country, you will see more stars and bars displayed than Biden signs. Defiantly not Connecticut. The Democrats don't get much support except in the predominantly black areas. The return of SEC football and deer season excites more people here.

    It is a POV thing. Is the coffee cup half full or half empty.

    In CA we have 53 Congressional Districts. The blue ones tend to have Democratic millionaires. The red ones tend to be Republican millionaires. Same thing with trailer parks. :waving:

    Alabama voted an anti gun Democrat into the Senate. Traitors

    I live in one of those neighborhoods and have for going on 25 years. There may be a sprinkling of households drowning in debt, but advanced degrees are the norm for the most part and the people who live here aren't worried about losing out to some immigrant who might take their job. They don't believe in a socialist agenda either. They know the road to financial success is linked to higher education and they take advantage of it.

    They just have a less threatening view of the world than those on the far right.

    You can only be so ‘poor’ living in a half million dollar house and driving 80,000 dollar cars. They have money coming in, lots of it, even if it all gets spent

    The one thing that I’ve learned is that success and intelligence/common sense aren’t always related. You’d think it would be but this thread proves it isn’t.

    Last I looked I'm a "whitey", I live in the suburbs of Indianapolis (Fishers), not many signs at all, in my hood, but TRUMP 10-1, if I do see any at all besides mine. Maybe its also the state, two weeks ago I drove thorough the Adirondacks and Alleghany's and saw the same thing Trump 10-1, but the big cities in those states beat the hell out of the country folk come voting day.
    And yes the Democrats will stop at nothing to win, I worry now too, what's going to stop them from stealing it...……?!?

    May God help us all, no ones fighting for our country now, so who will fight for it then?!?

    Well, sorry if I insulted your yuppity duppity richie rich neighborhood. Clearly people with advanced college degrees can't make financial mistakes. The problem is certainly only here because if the fear of the people on the right.
    My bad. I forgot that Biden voters are our betters in each and every way.

    Those liberal signs are their version of lambs blood on the door. They think the rioters will just pass them by. Just extreme naivety.

    Yep. Absolutely.
    Somehow, some way, it avoided me. Maybe it's because I treat people fairly. Or that I never owned slaves, nor did anyone in my family. But for some crazy reason, that whole white guilt just skipped me entirely.

    Yep. I'm guilty of nothing except, treating people right, working hard, and making good choices. Not that I haven't made plenty of bad ones, too.

    A Biden voter doesn’t own guns but likes to troll on gun forums.

    Harris will take our firearms in the first month. I will bet that Warren will be the
    Attorney General.

    Then only violent thugs will carry guns which is what the left wants.

    White guilt. A lot like having lambs blood on the top of the door frame. (Old Testament reference there).

    Drove through several states last week, predominantly in the South. Trump to Biden signs were literally 50:1.

    50:1

    It became a driving game with the wife to see who could spot it first...lol

    Rich and intelligent can go hand in hand...but not always. So if you're sporting a Biden sign in your affluent neighborhood, your intel has failed you! IMG_2179 (2).JPG

    I live in a fairly well off neighborhood of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, etc.... and there is not a single Trump sign in the neighborhood.

    However, that does not mean they are voting for Biden. I suspect many will likely vote for President Trump, and are embarrassed to admit it because of his childish behavior. During neighborhood cookouts, only a few of us will openly admit, that we voted for Trump; but most will agree his tweeting and behavior is foolish.

    Some people prefer to keep their vote private, and I can respect that.
