  1. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/360649040339271684/550108816369385472/53142841_171896243795046_4311051128184766464_n.jpg
  2. "if the number of qualifying candidates is too unwieldy for a single debate, the Democratic National Committee said it’ll hold primary debates on multiple nights if necessary, assigning candidates randomly to the two debates" That opens up the possibility of a lot of mischief. " 1 percent support in three national polls or polls of early primary states, or raise money from a minimum of 65,000 donors from 20 states, including at least 200 unique donors per state. " What polls? Do candidate polls count? Who decides if a state poll is worthy of inclusion? Do polls which have more then a 4.5% magin of error count (many early polls are at or over this level although they are statistically unreliable)? How do you include candidates with one or two percentage support if the margin of error in even the best polls are above 2.5%?
  3. An attempt by Bill Weld to seem relevant. Like the Republican Party would even seriously consider someone as their Presidential candidate that might be rightly thought of as holding moderate Democratic positions from a national Republican perspective.
  4. Very interesting use of terms. "concentration camps' really? Why not go whole hog and call them extermination camps. They are and function as detention camps for illegal immigrants who have no right to be released intro the general American population.
  5. Problem with the JCPOA is that it only delayed the Iranians from producidng weapons grade weapons. In fact it guaranteed that they would be able to do so after its initial term. It also did nothing from preventing the Iraq's to use slow methods of producing such weapon grade material even during the term of the agreement.
  6. AIPEC is a non-profit it does not pay any politician or candidate nor does it make political contributions. Yes, it's a pro-Israel lobby but it does not get involved in individual political races. And It's a rather common 'Troupe" that the Jews control the world (especially the US) through bribing them. The comments were not only remeniscent of the "Sons of Zion" but in fact borrows its language from that infamous anti-semtic work.
  7. Trump did not call ALL illegal Mexicans rapists. His actual quote" “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/07/08/donald-trumps-false-comments-connecting-mexican-immigrants-and-crime/?utm_term=.96aaa117b105
  8. Well, intelligence agencies have been known to be wrong (WM's in Iraq, assessment that the Castro regime would fold up at the first sign of AMerican/exile resistance prior to the Bay of Pigs being the most famous) the intelligence agencies also have an institutional interest in maintaining the status quo. As for Global governing bodies, who exactly voted them into power and exactly what expertise do they have that is not tainted by their own institutional biases and influence by member states.
  9. So Warren purposely Reported her race as a Native American when she applied to take the Texas Bar.
  10. It was largely led by people like Rep. Waters who was/is a representative. It's true that once the Supreme Coourt ruled Gore took it upon himself to be a statesman but that can not be said of many Democratic national elected officials who were among the first to attempt to deligitimize the Bush Admininstration.
  11. Well many of us would say that the line was crossed in 2000 when many insitutional Democrats took the position that the election was stolen by the supreme ourt and the Bush Presidency was illegitimate.
  12. Correction, we are much more likely to laugh at you wearing a dress. Muslims are much more likely to kill you and say that it's actually in your best interest. https://www.belfercenter.org/publication/islams-jihad-against-homosexuals
  13. The state legislation changing how electors are dispursed is a meaningless thing as the legislation is currently written. Such legislation only comes into effect once a majority of states have changed their alottment process to the same as in the legislation. You would thus have to change the method of alottment to an identical scheme in half the states prior to it becoming in effect. Also your point of increasing the size of the House misses the point that there is a very real upper limit on the number of representatives in a legislative body before it will seize to able to function. That is especially thre in a system where party loyalty is of secondary importance to personal electorial survival. These schemes also ignore the fact that they would have to be passed by the very people whose power would be effected. Congress has never come close to passing a balanced budget restriction or even an effective term limit and you expect the same people to vote to drasticly alter the share of power that they themselves have?
