      It's not when you look at that state and compare the amount of regulation vs any other state. There isn't even a close 2nd place. In practically any industry or form of govt.

      the red vs blue yard signs are quite telling in my neighborhood.

      Biden guy:
      BLM sign
      Hate has no place here sign
      Love thy neighbor sign
      Multi language sign saying welcome
      Biden 2020 sign
      and some Halloween decorations.

      Trump guy:
      16, yes SIXTEEN trump flags surrounding just his front yard with various slogans like "drain the swamp" "stop the BS" etc.
      Large banner on his truck's tailgate that says "F*&^ your feelings"

      I'm no expert but one of these people appears to have some untreated mental health issues.
      signatures are annoying, right?

      Rumor going around here is that BLM/ANTIFA-friendly people are going through neighborhoods burning the American flag if a homeowner has one flying.

      I keep trying to imagine someone doing this with Biden "flags" (which don't exist) or Obama "flags" (which also don't exist) and I just can't. The deification of this awful excuse for a human being is beyond bizarre.

      Seattle PD has dropped the subpoena to local news agencies to give them the unused (not broadcast) riot footage. The lawyer argued that forcing the agencies to hand over footage puts them at risk, as future protesters would attack the newspeople knowing that their possible criminal activity could be recorded and handed over to the police.

      If the Dems were just nicer and listened and didn't mock the "F*&^ your feelings" people they'd totally not vote for Trump.

      because "america's sweetheart" can't be sullied by the negative impacts of a-hole producers who created a racist and toxic/hostile work environment.

      I'm sorry, but "I'm sorry, it should never have happened," isn't a sincere apology at this level.

      I’ve had the We Believe sign on my lawn all summer, along with a pride flag flying from my attic window.

      It was pretty clear where I stood long before I put up my Biden/Harris sign on Saturday.

      I wouldn't be surprised, tho. Ever noticed that the loudest, most hateful, mouth-breathing conservatives are flying the flag in their fight as if they're at war with a foreign nation.

      So many times when I see some jackoff on social media ALLCAPPING "I'm tired of the liberal NFL," "F UR feelings," some swipe at NASCAR being ruined, (or any number of other predictable stances) their icon/banner has a flag, their user has a flag emoji in it, and they often reply with shorts bursts of flag emojis, only taking a breath to hashtag the **** of 2020 MAGA PATRIOT USA KAG!!!!!!

      Do they think the rest of the country aren't Americans? Who is it do think they're opponent is?

      the nuance of political stances is basically extinct. You are for this or against this. There is zero middle ground, there is zero room to negotiate, it's all or nothing. If you aren't on my team you're literally the anti-Christ.

      It's truly sad that we have candidates comparing themselves, favorably, to Atilla the hun. Like most of their electorate even knows who tf that is.

      i might have seen one in the wild. Dont remember if it was a flag or a sign fixed in place, but saw something that could have been a flag on a yacht in emerald isle last week.

      it was parked next to one with a trump flag.

      I haven't seen them, but it doesn't mean they don't exist. I haven't driven through neighborhoods looking at what flag they're flying, either. I've only occasionally seen a Trump flag fly. If my grandpa were still mentally there, and at home, I guarantee you he'd be all Democrat'd up with all the signs and flags. This type of battle he lived for. Staunch union Democrat is an understatement.

      This is the thing, though - you might have seen one small flag here or there. You don't see people flying 6' Biden flags off the back of their pickup, right next to (and at equal height with) an American flag or a Confederate flag. I need more than one hand to count the times I've seen massive Trump flags hanging off the back of a lifted Dodge Ram or 650k mi Chevy Silverado.

      They're not even trying to connect him to the presidency or democracy or anything... It's just literally TRUMP. This is a barn off I80 just south of Omaha. The banner is the size of a school bus.

      I'm wondering how many neighbors still have their "Take Back Vermont" signs in the barn?

      For non-Vermont people, that was the anti gay marriage thing 20 years ago. It didn't get much traction. The politics of hate doesn't work well in a state that is 98% white. All your neighbors are just like you.

      All I know about Trump vs Biden voters is this:

      This summer I was walking to the boat, and in one of the slips there was a big boat with Trump banners all over it. Big flag, etc. I happened to be wearing my CabinFest'18 tank top which sports a rainbow over a cabin.

      As I pass by the boat full of Trump supporters one of the gentlemen thought it necessary to say "Nice shirt [email protected]". I gave them a thumbs up and kept walking.

      I don't get that from people in boats with Biden flags/banners.

      Granted, there are no boats with Biden flags/banners, so there's that.
