    would you really not vote for him if he was the Dem nominee?

    Absolutely. I prefer my lawmakers to not be convicted criminals.

    Though, if your hypothetical had both candidates being convicted criminals, then I’d have to look closer at the alternatives, as well as examine how damaging the 2 criminals are likely to be going forward, shoukd they gain power.

      convicted

      Is that the important part?

      Because, again, Biden is openly breaking US and international law and despite a shit ton of evidence, he just keeps denying it

      We ratified it way back in 1988, the first year Biden tried to be president actually, so you’d think he’d remember it.

      International law: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocide_Convention

      US law: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/22/2304

      So do you deny that he’s providing aid to a nation committing a genocide?

      Or are you ok with it until he’s convicted and then it’s an issue?

      Because man, I don’t know how you haven’t noticed, but it’s pretty fucking hard to convict a president.

      And if my choice was Hunter or Joe, I’d prefer the recovered crack user to the guy actively assisting in a genocide but won’t admit it’s a genocide.

      Lesser of two evils, right?

      How many dead innocent children has each Biden caused? I don’t think Hunter has been responsible for any deaths…

        I’m not willing to blame Biden for Netanyahu’s crimes.

        There is no president in my lifetime that would have treated Israel signifigantly less kindly than the current administration has.

        Lesser of two evils, right?

        Yes, actually. Trump absolutely would have continued sucking up to the Israeligovernment, rather than attempting to have the combatants negotiate a cease fire.

          Providing material aid to a genocide is against US and international law tho…

          Like, if you admit there’s a genocide going on, and you admit Biden is providing aid despite evidence of the genocide…

          There’s not really any room for Biden to have not committed a crime.

          So, Hunter is the “least of three evils”, and I was trying to find out why so many people consider him worse than his dad.

          It doesn’t make logical sense.

          Which is probably why no one has seriously tried to explain why Hunter is bad but Joe is fine.

            There were good points to be made from the angle you’re taking, but I think you might be getting lost in the weeds here

        And if your choice was Trump or Biden? What a stupid hypothetical “Hunter or Joe”. Come on out and directly say you’ll support Trump. All your word salad is basically saying “vote for Trump” or “don’t bother voting because both sides”.

        Again, Trump has PROMISED worse.

        So how does genocide factor into your decision making?
