I'm not sure our political scene can sink much lower...
It can and it will.
Seriously? By now I’m astonished that things aren’t being settled via arm-wrestling or throwing dice.
I’m my experience throwing dice results in more arguments.
Have any of y'all seen this? Richard Linklater has made an anti-Ted Cruz political ad. I think it's pretty hilarious:
Anything to get that booger-eating, toad-looking pussy out of office is fine by me.
That's pretty funny... Tehd...
I don't know if I would go as far as to say they don't have a platform, but it has taken a backseat to fear mongering and paranoia. Take the Kavanaugh situation. It's been pants on head retarded from the beginning, and now they're openly saying that they're going to try to get him impeached because he was appointed "illegitimately". How was it illegitimate? Doesn't matter. Details...
The left media/congressman have really cranked up the social justicey talk over the last couple of years, which is off-putting to some of the base, loved by other parts of the base, but I think what's going to determine the course of the party is how far they swing left towards socialism. That's where the youth vote and the energy is at right now. They'll probably do fine in November on the simple basis that a Trump led Republican party is going to struggle until post 2020. A democrat socialist platform is going to fare terribly with the electorate outside of deep blue regions, but it's consistently growing within the base and its proponents don't want to budge an inch.
In what world is the United States even remotely close to adopting socialism? I do not understand this fear, aside from understanding that Republicans need to stoke it to have any chance of winning elections. The Democratic Party is a pro-market, pro-free trade, pro-corporate party that supports a mild social safety net.
Yesterday CNN decided to do some hard hitting journalism. After Kanye's meeting with Trump they decided it was important to ask Ray J about it.
For one, I'm not talking about socialism in the way republican pundits and politicians talk about it. For them socialism = communism. I'm talking about socialism in the way self professed democratic socialists are talking about it. Don't take my word for it, take their's.
Did you forget Bernie almost won the primaries while running as a socialist? Ultimately he lost, but it was no accident that of the available candidates the party chose him to give Hillary a run. If you think socialism (again, not talking about communism) hasn't become increasingly popular within the party you really haven't been paying attention.
The classic two degrees of Kevin Bacon Kim Kardashian's pussy approach to journalism.
Relevant - Find out how Donald Trump filled the hole in Kanye's soul.
I think at one point he basically called Trump his surrogate father, but he was so all over the place I'm not really sure.
I'm amused by some of the people saying "Oh, Kanye disagrees with you politically so you call him crazy." No, he admits he's been diagnosed with bipolar and is refusing medication and people call him crazy.
The thing is, 99.9999999% of these socialist candidates plans have "tax the rich" as the solution for everything. Not realizing that the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson, etc. spend fucktons of money so they don't have to spend even more fucktons of money in taxes. Not very likely that they'll roll over and make it easy on anyone.
To the Kanye/Trump meeting........Is this basically the "Elvis visiting the White House" of our generation? Except replace a Mt Everest sized pile of painkillers and cocaine with straight up mental illness?
You should be able to tell that he’s crazy simply by being alive in this world. I’m amazed nobody has caught him torturing animals yet.
And yet, let’s let the obnoxious tardbucket run his gums in the Oval fucking Office. Because that’s not nearly as bad as when President Blackenstein took his jacket off in there.
He seems far too emotionally sensitive to torture anything. He strikes me as the type of crazy who regularly breaks down into tears at the breakfast table.
No one comes away from that family of bleating harpies with their sanity intact. Kanye went in with a very fragile grasp on his mental well being, he never stood a chance.
Wouldn’t you, after looking over the fucking clan you married into?
Well they did call him a token negro for it. The left's acted the same to truly learned black men who don't agree in lock step with democratic ideals. See Thomas Sowell, Clearance Thomas, Herman Cain, Ben Carson.
Thats not quite what Im getting at. They really dont have the cohesion to win on policy alone. Not only do Blacks and Gays not really support each other (Blacks in CA voted against gay marriage by 86% on Prop 8), they cant even agree on a common definition of "civil rights." One defines it in political terms, the other in economic. Greens and Unions will never, ever agree on industrial/trade policy. Democratic Socialists and the 18-30 demographic have systemic issues with taxes and the impact on single women, particularly mothers. Republicans have a smaller coalition of groups that dont quite step on each other's toes the same way, at least the interests dont conflict with one another so abruptly.
Also Kanye is a fucking lunatic, why is this being debated?
