The US system of government is sometimes called the greatest experiment in political science, and just like all grand experiments a few tests blow up in our face; Trump is one such example.


i don't think it recovers. by the time they're done, the current administration will have locked in their back-to-the-1860s agenda for the next century, which means economic collapse and probably a civil war. the only way America retains clout under these conditions is by war, economic or military. and believe me, the rich will happily send millions of us to die so they can keep their expense accounts.

It's kind of disturbing that the Trump administration feels the ideas behind the Green New Deal and socialized medicine are extreme. :whoa:

So, quick question. Are people cool with Biden now? It seems like more and more shit is getting thrown out there about him that honestly makes him seems like kind of a POS, but at the same time, I don't know what to believe anymore. Thoughts?

Honestly, it's way too early in the primary process to be able to tell if he'll end up being a viable candidate. :snax:

He's got a high profile, but, as you've noted, his "old-school politician" vibe is working against him. :idk:

The closer it gets to election time, the more I see "socialism SUCKS" bumper stickers. I love seeing one on a Volvo especially.
Where can I get a "socialism is my jam" sticker?
