MartianRecon,

For anyone wanting to sit on the sidelines, this is what is going to happen. trump WILL open camps, and these people will refuse to cover it.

Abstain at your own peril.

MartianRecon,

Yeah, but how are you going to realistically do that?

I’d love to know. Because I hate citizens united. But what do you propose people do about this?

MartianRecon,

The answer is you vote or we lose democracy. That’s the simple end-all be-all answer here.

Biden might not be what every single leftist wants, but I guaranfuckingtee that it won’t just be illegal aliens in his camps. It will be you as well.

I personally don’t want to live in Gilead. I don’t want to fight in a civil war. I’d rather much prefer we vote in Biden, let the Silent/Boomers die off, so we can fix this shit.

MartianRecon,

Okay so what’s your option then?

Because sitting out wont do anything, and acting like nothing is happening for people is also not doing any good.

MartianRecon,

Hah, I’m actually a millennial, but it’s happening to the tune of 5,500 boomers a day. Even more for the silent gen.

MartianRecon,

I said realistically. That’s not realistic at all. It’d be great to have a post scarcity economy. I’d love it. But that’s not realistic.

MartianRecon,

Theres no way to prove beyond a reasonable doubt he was on substances when he purchased the firearm. The form asks if you’re a USER of drugs. If he was not using substances when he was buying the firearm, he didn’t lie.

That’s fine. If this is now precedent, the government needs to go and retroactively charge all users, and not just a spotlight democrat.

MartianRecon,

If you’re a progressive, Biden has been the most progressive president since Kennedy. Lol.

If you’re not. Are you willing to have American democracy end, because you personally weren’t courted by the president?

MartianRecon,

That’s up for debate. For me, he’s the most liberal since Kennedy but if you think it’s LBJ instead, that’s fine too!

MartianRecon,

I think that’s a no true Scotsman kind of thing. Biden has done plenty of progressive policies. He’s forgiven billions in student loan debt (and wanted to forgive more but R courts are political), he’s passed infrastructure, and he’s also passed some bills to keep the cost of medicine down.

Could he do more? Sure. If voters showed up at the midterms and gave him a D house, he could have done more. But they didn’t.

Way too often, people let perfect be the enemy of good. Biden is good, not perfect.

MartianRecon,

What’s EC? Electoral College?

MartianRecon,

Ahhh gotcha. Yeah I’m new to the site as a reddit exile and still figuring out everything here.

Yeah, those people are just tiresome, and they have no idea how geopolitics works. It’s annoying, and one of the effects of republicans cutting funding for schools and not teaching civics anymore.

MartianRecon,

Biden passed comprehensive student loan forgiveness, and it was struck down by the supreme court for bullshit reasons. He’s using the mechanisms of government that he can control.

Or did you forget that part?

MartianRecon,

That’s good to hear. I had my 7 year reddit account permanently suspended for sarcastically making fun of the bot infestation, so fuck them.

Yeah, it’s different but it feels like an ‘older’ forum which is definitely nice!

MartianRecon,

Biden had numerous accomplishments from his first 2 years, lol.

That’s completely disingenuous.

MartianRecon,

And you ignored my part of the conversation. He DID pass comprehensive student loan debt relief. Republicans used lawfare to halt the program.

Does that not count?

MartianRecon,

He literally passed a bill, and republicans used the courts to strike it down. Biden then uses the mechanisms of government he can control, and still helps SOME people

Naw that doesn’t count it’s a participation trophy.

🙄

MartianRecon,

The sheer amount of dismissiveness towards the propaganda brigades and the moderators with an agenda was pathetic. I messaged admins numerous times and the universal response was shrugging their shoulders. It’s so dumb.

MartianRecon,

Oh heaven forbid I mix up how he is trying to help people. Forgive my non-encyclopedic memory.

Biden also literally has changed his views as the times have changed. That’s to be expected when the population shifts.

MartianRecon,

Sure bud whatever you say. Like you’ve never mixed something up before ;)

MartianRecon,

Yeah we’ll see how it goes. So far it’s been fun. I wish there were a few niche activities that I like that were more active here but that’s okay!

MartianRecon,

Because as sad as it is there are people who can be swayed, and this is Fox being on team republican and not being a media company.

MartianRecon,

Honestly, good. Israel’s PM is not looking for the off ramp here, so the US should act in it’s own interest (for once) when our ally wants to keep the military operation going.

MartianRecon,

I don’t know I’m not part of the negotiations team.

MartianRecon,

What’s depressing is if literally any of our institutions acted how they were supposed to, this wouldn’t be an issue.

The 4th estate is failing the country because they’ve been bought by oligarchs.

The judicial apparatus is failing because it’s been bought by oligarchs.

The political apparatus is failing because it’s been bought by oligarchs.

Man I wish we could put our finger on the reason why everything is coming down around us…

MartianRecon,

It’s very frustrating, yeah. All the progress this country was making was thwarted by a bunch of butt-hurt southerners and racists.

Why was Trump talking about sharks at a campaign event? (www.usatoday.com)

“It must be because of M.I.T., my relationship with M.I.T., very smart. I say, 'What would happen if the boat sank from its weight and you’re in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery is now underwater, and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there?” Trump said. “By...

MartianRecon,

I know you’re joking but unfortunately this is probably the answer.

MartianRecon,

He saw the previews for it.

MartianRecon,

At what point do these actions constitute an act of war?

I mean, it’s blatantly obvious what they are doing.

MartianRecon,

Well yeah but the number one thing these people crave is dominion over others. Any professed love for liberty, freedom, and the rule of law will go out the window the second they can successfully do so.

That’s why they are acting now. Because their demographics are cooked after this election, so they are going all in to try and steal control away from the people.

MartianRecon,

He can demand all he wants, but… he fucking said it.

MartianRecon,

Yea, bad guys shouldn’t use civilians as human shields.

That doesn’t give someone else the right to shoot the civilians to kill the bad guys.

MartianRecon,

Without a doubt. Israel shouldn’t be killing innocent civilians just because the terrorists are hiding in an apartment building, you know?

MartianRecon,

Yes, you’re right. No one is saying they should. Lol.

The point, is that Israel is the ‘good guys’ and they shouldn’t bomb innocent people just because they are being used by the bad guys.

MartianRecon,

The euro election seems to be a low turnout election, so this could absolutely be a wakeup call to apathetic voters as well.

It’s a gamble but it’s a calculated one.
