I think its the guy that told someone to sack up and create a grassroots political party.


Actually, I said sack up and overthrow the government. You’re not getting true justice in the legacy of a settler/slaver multigenocidal society.

My mistake.

That Kasich guy sounds like a jerk. We should primary him out of whatever his current elected position with Democrats is.

That's not much of a reward for a guy who helped turn his home state of OH from +8 Trump in '16 to +8 Trump in '20.

How many crisis do you think exist at once? This was the opposite of specific.


I'm saying that according to these people, there are a lot of them! Climate, predatory lending, the pandemic, the pandemic in prisons, housing, police brutality, homelessness. When everything is urgent/important, nothing is urgent/important.

Jesus Christ this is pathetic

Nobody answered them, though!

The correct order is

1) climate change
2) racial justice through police and prison reform
3) universal health care
4) immigration reform
5) minimum wage increase
6) tax reform
7) predatory lending

Wouldn’t it be glorious if the judge referred the case to Bogotà as a result?

The key to all the things everyone seems to want is campaign finance and lobbying reform. When money = speech our government is corrupt by definition.

I’m not optimistic.

Sorry, Charlie, but there isn't one.

While I agree with those who call Trump a one-off, mostly, it still doesn't mean a bunch of authoritarian wannabees aren't gonna try their level best to keep MAGA mobilized. See: well, everything GOPers have done in forever, especially post-2020 election

Trump has truly broken a lot of peoples’ brains. Their worldview is a complete binary of “Pro-Trump vs Deep State,” and anything remotely anti-Trump must be abandoned or destroyed. When the Pope and Newsmax are too liberal for you, there is no coming back

Man, I almost wish they weren't so bad at this. What an incredible coincidence that this poll watcher somehow knows the contents of these USB drives, knows what they did, AND they're now all missing. What are the odds?!?
