    The Lincoln Project

    It just occurred to me that the Lincoln Project, as well as other similar anti-Trump initiatives are essentially "false flag" operations designed to convince Democrats that Trump's loss in November is inevitable, and therefor there is no need to get out and vote.
    If you have to resort to insults, name calling, ad hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, appeals to authority, and other dirty debate tactics, the veracity of you argument is questionable.

    I doubt that will be the case. Trump is the kind of guy everyone wants to pile onto. Hell, I'd stand in the rain for 5 hours, if need be, just to vote against that SOB, even if he had no chance to win in my state.

    No, not at all.

    Re: The Lincoln Project

    The Lincoln Project isn't trying to sway Democrats or Independents at all. Their target audience is Republicans, are those who may have voted for Trump last time only because he has an "R" next to his name, but show them it is okay (because of info they include in their ads against Trump) to either sit out this election or even vote for Biden or someone else. Any voter who last time voted for Trump, was considering voting for him again, but chooses not to do so benefits Biden, whether they vote for Biden or not.

    Yes, that's what they want you to think. That's why it's a false flag.

    Then don't fall for it. How hard is that? I dont know of anyone who is planning on not voting because Biden is set to win.

    Not at all. Former Republican strategist and Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver.....

    Lincoln Project Co-Founder says group's new goal is to move Republican voters 'away from Trump and into the Biden column'


    Who do you pick to run against a racist, misogynistic crook? A black female prosecutor.

    Vote for Joe Biden/Kamala Harris and all Democrat candidates on November 3.
