    That time of year. The list is getting ridiculously long now. So bare with me.

    The 2020 United States presidential election, scheduled for Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

    The winner of the 2020 presidential election is scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.

    Respectfully, each party will hold a Convention to announce their parties choices going into November.

    The 2020 Republican National Convention will be held from August 24-27, 2020, at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. By tradition, because Republicans currently hold the White House, their convention will be held after the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Ronna McDaniel is currently named chair of the RNC Convention.


    The 2020 Democratic National Convention will be held from July 13–16, 2020, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Joe Solmonese, former President of the Human Rights Campaign, was named convention CEO in March of 2019.

    I think we are way underestimating the potential of Vermin Supreme on the Libertarian ticket. He just looks so Presidential.

    The name made me look him up. From his Wikipedia page, looks like a good one to push into office, and then after he collapses the government, re-establish a Constitution following one. Only half kidding. The guy will be a little old, but let's revisit him after looking at Pence's odds in 2024.

    from wiki

    Supreme discussed his political views in a 2008 promotional video. He stated he was registered as a Republican at that time, but that he leaned toward anarchism. He asserted that libertarians "are just about abolishing the government and letting shit fall where it may,"[17] which he called a mistake; he also asserted that Republicans want to nullify the government, but "offer no alternative to helping people other than charity."[17] Supreme's vision of anarchism holds no need for government, but depends on citizens to take responsibility for themselves and for others, citing "mutual aid and support and care to our fellow citizens" as key elements. To that end, Supreme called for a gradual dismantling of the government, while citizens take up the slack. He asserted that Americans no longer know how to be citizens, placing some of the blame on schools that teach in "very twisted and jingoistic fashion".[17]

    In the video, Supreme discussed his presidential campaign. He describes his "joke humor" campaign as a response to the lies people are fed by the media and by the government.[17]
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    Vermin Supreme is an interesting character.

    His platform is Free ponies for everyone.

    Mandatory teeth brushing with Government Dentist roaming the streets to enforce this law. Even going as far as forced dentistry if people are found with really bad teeth on the spot.

    zombie apocalypse awareness programs. (He loses me here on this. I don't like my Apocalypse's known.)

    Government funded time travel research.

    Pete Buttigieg just jumped in on the left.


    Interesting thought here, we could be looking at a brokered convention this year for the left. To win the party ticket, they must get 1969 first round delegates without any Super Dels to take the ticket. Out of a total possibility of 3936 Dels. If the Super Dels must get involved, then they must win 2267. With 764 possible super Dels there to help get them to that number.

    The real fun part is the fact of their primary scheduled that may cause this problem.

    Mon Feb 3
    Iowa caucuses
    There is only 52 Dels. Almost all should slide through this first round. The field is so massive most will only pick up 5 - 10 at most.

    Tue Feb 11
    New Hampshire
    There is only 24 Dels here. Much like Iowa, I would only expect a small number of low hanging contenders to drop. Way to early.

    Sat Feb 22
    Nevada caucuses &
    South Carolina
    There is a total 92 Dels here. Now we could see the field down to a 10 candidates at this point. TBH, anything above 5 could be disastrous and force a brokered convention for the left after this.

    Tue Mar 3
    Alabama, Arkansas, California, Democrats Abroad, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia
    This is where they may find them selves forced into a brokered convention. Should a large enough field stick it out to this date. The massive number of Dels up, and split among those running may be more then the remaining can overcome.

    A total of 1261 Dels are up for grabs on this date. Out of a total of 3936 total, this one day represents 32% of the total available. If this gets split up among a large number of remaining candidates, it could become near impossible for any one of them to reach the required 1969 before the Supers have to vote.
