Re: Politics & Current Events

I don't think it has sunk for liberals how bad this is yet. The current form of the Republican Party believes that Paul Ryan isn't sufficiently conservative. They are also going to have unfettered power over all three branches of government as soon as they nuke the filibuster. They fear no electora...

Re: Politics & Current Events

The world we live in is basically 70 years old. A superpower United States helping to hold the world together. It is the only world we have ever known, and I think that gives us a lot of status quo bias. In terms of history, 70 years is a blip and things can turn on a dime. We aren't special and a l...

Re: Politics & Current Events

White supremacy is now mainstream and acceptable. Should be fine for us white guys, but you should be able to empathise with the fear and anxiety that the "less desirables" are feelings today. I'm not expecting anything to happen immediately, but with a mentally disabled son, I'm not real...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump openly advocated first strike as a strategic policy and seems to have an obsession with surprise attacks. This is not an unfounded fear.

Re: Politics & Current Events

I've got plenty of anger to go around.

But Clinton and her campaign messed up badly. You can't chase NC and Florida, lose both narrowly, and also fail to hold WI-MI-PA. That is a spectacular failure

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump is going to win 300 EVs while losing the popular vote if Upshot is right about MI and PA, and they have been right all night. I'm trying to feel better by reminding myself I live in California and as long as the nukes don't hit LA, it will stay pretty liberal out here. I wish more people had s...

I feel like 98% of the posts in this thread are "this is why Trump sucks" and very, very few posts are "this is why Hillary will be great" and the like. Do any of you actually like Hillary? (Don't take this as me being pro Trump. I'm not voting for either one of them.) I like Cl...
