As a Canadian I should probably keep my mouth shut but I just saw this on the news. Vote for me or you ain't black - Biden
It is hard to fathom that a choice between Trump and Biden is the best that the US can come up with.
Mind you, I am far from sold on our PM either.

Frankly, our democratic system is failing us. It has become a sport, looking for gotcha moments, debating points, showmanship, how much money you can raise etc. The character of our politicians seems to be well down on the scale of what's important. It isn't about providing a good government whose goal is to actually serve the country and hopefully make the world a better place.
It just seems to me that the people who run are running out of the desire for power and influence, and then when they get elected it is about maintaining power and influence with little thought given to doing something positive with it. Thankfully there are exceptions but I haven't seen many examples of it lately.
