Well we both know it's going to be between trump and Biden, and I want trump out of there so yes I'm voting for Biden.
My only concern... mind you, you gotta vote for who you feel is best for the job... Biden doesn't seem to know where he is 90% of the time. He comes off as having brain damage from the clap or something.

Quick question Slo_Ride... why do you dislike Trump so much? What has he done to the country that you don't like?

Unfortunately that binary thought process will always keep us on a course for failure.
Facts are facts bro. You really think some third party candidate is going to come in and defeat either of those two? Of course not, they wouldn't even get ten percent of the votes.

For the alternative parties you could say that libertarians and progressives are the same fringe in each party. Progressives identify more with green party and libertarians identify with their libertarian candidates. Progressives figured out though that the more effective way to get their agenda passed was to co-opt the democratic party. Libertarians should do the same with the Republican party, because what they believe is a thousand times more palatable than endless religious wars and treating public education like some sort of injection site for Christianity.

Why they thought the heavy woofers should have ZERO padding and the light tweeters molded foam is beyond me...

Yet tweeters have enough to survive anything.

I can't stand that. Amazon shipped me playing cards in the same package with no padding as heavy-duty bookends. By the time I got it the cards were out of the box and a few were close to being ripped in half. I don't necessarily know if the manufacturer should be responsible for making regular packaging as good as shipping packaging, but with Amazon doing most sales it's getting to that point. Amazon's sure not going to pitch in a dime worth of padding to save daytonaudio's reputation.

I bought directly from Parts Express. The actual shipping box was packed fantastic but the woofers had zero foam.

Yeah, huge difference on those two pictures. Obviously they're trying to save money on materials, but it's going to cost them in the long run on returns and reputation. I ordered a cast iron enameled sink a while ago with Menards and the manufacturer didn't have anything except the thin cardboard protecting it. It weighs 130lbs and twice when I went to pick it up I checked inside the packaging and the enamel was chipped. On the 3rd one it finally wasn't chipped but the box failed as I lifted it into the tailgate so I ditched the packaging before it was even in the house. :rolleyes: It seems like some manufacturers either expect miracles or that their customers will shut up and accept damaged goods.

Libertarians are not an extreme right party in fact many of their social policies/beliefs align with left policies. They just get labeled as extreme rightists because many of them come off as off the grid prepper whackos when that is not reality. It’s just a narrative because both parties lose by having a viable 3rd party. I’d be fine voting for any legitimate 3rd party that arises.

I agree, I didn't mean the term "alternative" to mean "extreme". In a similar way progressives aren't "far left" on everything, they agree with libertarians on a lot so long as it's not related to the role of government in the economy. Even then they disagree with republicans about that too. Republicans just come down on the side of giant businesses rather than people when it comes to their socialism. Libertarian principles are in the truest sense what a separation between government and socialism would look like.

The main difference I think between them, which is what I was saying earlier, is that libertarians have had less success with finding successful politicians. That's not because the politicians calling themselves libertarians are worse, it's more like getting someone with an L instead of an R or D next to their name is incredibly hard and when they do they're often milk toast and go along with one of the main parties, only sticking their neck out for a few important things like Justin Amash (L). Meanwhile progressives are gaining steam in the Democratic party, kicking out weak incumbents slowly but surely each election. I don't think they'd get the same traction if they called themselves the Progressive party and had to run against Democrats in the general elections. Primaries are where the 2 party system is weakest.

A Doordash driver cut me off on my last delivery to attempt an illegal U-turn in front of me. I had to brake so hard that eventually my 4-wheel ABS locked up. I decelerated so hard to avoid hitting him that my sub box came THROUGH my back seat. I missed him by literal inches.

Nice job stopping at least. I almost watched a guy get instakilled when a firetruck did a u turn in front of him. It was on that day I fully understood why we stop in every single lane. They take 5 lanes to do a U. I'm sure he learned something too lol.

Any warping of the rotors or anything?

No, I recently put slotted and cross drilled rotors up front with carbon ceramic pads then installed some carbon ceramic pads out back as well. The car still tracks fine and no pedal pulsing when stopping. I checked my shorts when I got home. I followed the guy to his stop... I never cussed at him but I ask if he was crazy or something and told him he almost caused a bad crash. He just apologized over and over and over.

If I was in my old Grand Cherokee I would have put my bumper in his back seat. The brakes on that suHUUUUCKED. I am alive, he is alive. It's all good.
