  1. Why are you republican? I follow american politics regularly, and I understand that american society is more of a “pull yourself up by the booth straps” mind then most European societies. There are a couple of things I honestly don’t understand. 1. Even tough I don’t agree I can understand the Roe vs Wade debate, innocent children are “murdered”. I wonder if you are better off being born if you are not wanted, or really sick, but I understand the position, my question is; If you are against ending ones live, why don’t you oppose death sentences and why are you not promoting free birth control, I think that is the best option for preventing abortions. (Kids as young as 6 get sex Ed and around 12 they can take condoms home, at 16 girls can get free birth control pills without parental consent here and our abortion and teen pregnancy rates are really low (even though you can get a abortion within 10 miles anywhere in the country)) 2. Why don’t you advocate for better public education? The best equalizer and really the only way that you can ask people to fend for themselves is giving them the same opportunities in live. And the only way of doing that is education. (We are well off and give our children, when neccessary, tutors, I think those should also be equally provided for all children for the simple reason that kids should have the same opportunity) 3. How come free market and religious believes are in the same party? I don’t believe in free markets or god, but what I have understood of Sunday school is that Jesus thinks the best people look after the weakest in society, does that not go exactly against the free market principles. 4. Why don’t you want people to be a bit happier (no worries about children, healthcare, housing and food equals basic happiness levels) in exchange for additional private jets for the richest people? I don’t pretend in socialist society everything is perfect, over here poor people can’t always live where they want because social housing is really popular in big cities and kids realize Christmas presents at other houses are more expensive. And sure we complain a bit when the tax bill comes in, but I’m really happy to know no one thinks twice about taking there kids to the doctor and I never have to “go fund” someone’s doctors bills.
  2. As I'm sure you all know already, the Republicans are in a never-ending war to make it harder for anyone who isn't a white, Christian Republican to vote. But even though this is public knowledge, it still startles me by how brazen they are about it. I've read three articles today alone about how little the Republicans care about the will of the people. 1. Fox News basically admitted recently that they can't win elections without gerrymandering. http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/2/26/1637882/-Fox-N-ws-admits-to-Republican-gerrymandering 2. State GOP Chair opposes bill making it easier to vote: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/montana-mail-in-ballots_us_58b0549de4b0780bac289c5d?7cfkddpdmdv7k3xr& 3. This article is a voting rights round-up that covers several states: http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/2/24/1636656/-Voting-Rights-Roundup-North-Carolina-Republicans-plot-even-more-new-ways-to-rig-elections
  3. GOP parts ways with county chairman after indecent exposure arrest involving stun gun More widestancing, it seems. How much you want to bet this guy is against marriage equality?
  4. Yeah I know this article is from January of last year, but it's too good not to share. It has the five types of conservatives to ignore. They're the Hitler was on the left idiots, the Civil War wasn't over slavery buttholes, anti-choice extremists, and the Rush is right dweebs. And my personal favorite; And right between the eyes too.
  5. This thread is dedicated to resources and links to help the effort to turn the U.S. House of Reps blue! https://swingleft.org/ Swing Left was mentioned previously on here. Enter your zip code to find the nearest swing district to you. You can take a variety of actions like volunteering or donating to the opponent's campaign. Running List of Vulnerable Seats - Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) Daniel Donovan (NY-11) John Faso (NY-19) Claudia Tenney (NY-22) John Katko (NY-24) Leonard Lance (NJ-07) Ryan Costello (PA-06) That's all I have time for now. You can use the map on their website to find more - both parties have vulnerable districts, so some people may want to help out in vulnerable blue districts instead.
  6. Another Republican says what they're thinking https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/02/14/oklahoma-bill-would-require-father-of-fetus-to-approve-abortion Hey, Humphrey, fuck you! What's next you piece of shit? Women having to get permission to leave the house? To drive?
  7. I was hoping that I had clicked onto an Onion story but no, apparently the Republicans in Michigan have totally lost their minds. Thanks, Trump! https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/feb/16/michigan-republicans-consider-kid-rock-as-candidate-for-us-senate Michigan Republicans consider Kid Rock as candidate for US senate If the star of a reality TV show can become president, then anyone can go into politics, right? That appears to be the thinking of Republicans in Michigan, who are apparently considering asking Kid Rock to run for the US Senate next year. Roll Call, the newspaper of Capitol Hill, reports that Rock’s name came up during discussions about the state’s senatorial race at a convention of Michigan Republicans. If selected as candidate, Rock – real name Robert Ritchie – would be running against the Democrat incumbent Debbie Stabenow, in what is traditionally a safe Democrat seat. However, Donald Trump narrowly took Michigan in the presidential election, winning by 10,704 votes, or a margin of 0.23%.
  8. He actually said this while Obama was in office bit it's picking up again now. On the conservative radio show ‘Morning In America’, hosted by Bill Bennett, Republican Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan was the guest. Before right-wing radio, Bennet’s previous job was Secretary of Education under President Reagan. He’s also known for being hypocritical: He gambled away millions while preaching morals and values at the same time. Paul Ryan was on Bennett’s showto discuss his House Budget Committee’s report called ‘War on Poverty: 50 Years Later’. In this report, Ryan states that the root cause of continued poverty in America is actually anti-poverty programs developed under President Lyndon Johnson and the Presidents since. Ryan used thinly-veiled, coded language during the interview when he claimed that black men are perfectly satisfied with being poor and do not wish to have a job with a working wage. He also said that previously developed anti-poverty programs by the government and non-profits create a culture of laziness. He expanded on this by recommending that wealthy white people from the suburbs should spend extra time mentoring black people in the inner-city. So the answer for those living in poverty without employment opportunities is to have someone whitesplain the tired old “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” line? http://countercurrentnews.com/2017/01/paul-ryan-black-men-are-lazy-and-the-cause-of-poverty-in-the-u-s/

    Political Cartoonage

    Thanks to the mods for starting this forum! I like politics in small doses, but I also like them contained. I've been thinking for some time we need a thread for political cartooning. I'm not fussy about party - anything that makes a point, I believe it's fair game. I'll start off with this one:
  10. Now, I'm not from the US, but since basically everything the US does affects the rest of the world too, I'm very interested in US politics. And I have to say, I'm also very concerned. Especially with the Republican front-runner candidates who are simply insane. In fact, if I were a US citizen, I'd rather vote for Bernie Sanders than for someone like Trump or Cruz, or one of the other Republican loonies, and I'm definitely not a social democratic or even socialist by far. Since we have some members here who actually work or have worked in politics, or otherwise seem to know a lot about that topic, I'm interested, what do you think will happen? Will Trump really get the Republican nomination? And if yes, does he have any chance to actually win the main election? And if not Trump, who else will be the Republican candidate? And what about the Democrats? Do you think Sanders will win? Or will it be HRC?
  11. Donald Trump's triumphant procession toward Inauguration Day continues . . . . . . in his own feeble mind. In the real world, the Trump/Clinton polling is closer than many would like. Trump gave a really rambling interview to the Washington Post (what's new.) Multiple media sources are reporting panic in the Republican National leadership. Politics are dissolving friendships. (That is sad. ) And Huffington Post has this to say: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/katrina-pierson-cnn-obama-khan_us_57a14823e4b0693164c337fb? Three Trump: the evangelicals' choice. *sigh* OH! Last page of the previous thread:
  12. It's been 30 years, but the GOP reaction hasn't changed since... Just sayin...
  13. well a match made in heaven intolerance hate and ignorance they are well matched. http://www.addictinginfo.org/2016/05/18/phil-robertson-will-be-donald-trumps-spiritual-advisor/
  14. Another day, another GOP supporter in hot water... talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/mccain-fundraiser-arrested-meth-bust
  15. Some good news out of Tennessee today... washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2016/04/14/tennessee-governor-vetoes-bill-making-bible-the-official-state-book/?tid=sm_fb Kudos to Gov. Haslam for having the courage to do this. But yeah when your reich wing base finds out about this...
  16. The venue for the Republican Convention does not allow firearms. A petition to allow firearms at the convention has over 25,000 signatures. What could possibly go wrong? Guns don't kill people. It is the bad people with guns that kill people. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/25-000-sign-petition-allow-guns-republican-national-convention-cleveland-n546076
  17. The way conservatives have attacked Michelle oboma over everything how would the deal with Melania Trump posting nude? can you imagine them excepting her?

    Republican Debate 3 March

    I don't watch politics. Among other things, it's not good for my blood pressure. I usually read lots of articles and analysis. Occasionally, I may watch a snippet. But the reports about last night's debate just. WOW. Did we really have candidates for President on a national forum talking about the size of their penii? And did Donald Trump actually brag that he would force members of the US military to violate the Geneva Convention? http://www.newyorker.com/news/amy-davidson/donald-trump-and-an-even-cruder-g-o-p-debate I'm not sure whether to bang my head into a wall or vomit.
  19. Get the toilet ready for another FLUSH. cnn.com/2016/02/20/politics/jeb-bush-drops-out-2016/index.html
  20. ofd course christians never break the law so this should be ok. how can anyone determine what is a true belief? of course this really is only about christians as usual. http://www.ifyouonlynews.com/religion/west-virginia-republicans-push-for-a-law-making-any-crime-committed-for-jesus-legal/
  21. Me thinks this guy has some issues. but at least he did not go too far “We’re not going to outlaw masturbation in Utah.” http://www.addictinginfo.org/2016/01/31/republican-porn-is-worse-than-cocaine-govt-has-to-act-on-public-health-crisis/
  22. Stories like this make me brassed to live in Tennessee. I http://www.rawstory.com/2016/01/tennessee-gop-lawmaker-resigns-leadership-post-after-hes-outed-as-a-serial-sexual-harasser/ He tried to get leniency for a minister caught with child porn and accused the liberal media of a 'witch hunt'. Sounds familiar huh? http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2015/12/11/ramsey-says-durham-letter-shows-poor-judgment/77151368/
