Well, DemonFiren is half right. 2016 did sort of break the GOP too. However, unlike the DNC they've managed to rally around a new platform and image. They re-invented themselves. They've dropped the autistic anti-LGBT stuff, they don't really give a shit about abortion anymore (Trump's new supreme court nominee has stated point blank that there is a constitutional right to abortion), no more of the religious shit, etc. All of the wedge issues are basically gone. Even though I'm not a conservative, I can respect the insane 180 they pulled form 4 years prior.

Meanwhile, the DNC seems to have doubled down on the wedge issues. LGBT stuff, gun control, and hating Trump makes up their entire platform. They don't have any charismatic figureheads, no momentum, no vision, nothing but wedge issues that the average person doesn't give a shit about. None of those things are going to get a candidate into office. They needed to shed the wedge issues and focus on what lost them the election, which is basically the opposite of what they're doing now. For fuck's sake, they're spewing old Republican talking points (negotiating with "terrorists" is bad, Russia is Satan, FBI/CIA are trustworthy, etc).


Buckle up, because the GOP is going to be in power for a long time if things continue the way they are now.

For some reason the republicans have had a lot more presidents in office than the democrats historically

When Trump rolled the GOP primaries there was basically a fork in the road for the repubs as a party: Either give it to Trump who had fairly won, or fudge the numbers and push through the candidate they wanted (Jeb, if I recall correctly). The same thing happened with the DNC and Sanders, and they chose the latter rather than the former. So now however many months into Trump's presidency the DNC is still incapable to accept that they fucked up and lost because if they do they'll cease to exist.

November is going to be the first real test for the new GOP. I expect them to do reasonably well, but it's going to be interesting to watch. The DNC is going to go into a tailspin if they don't perform well, given how desperate they are for the so-called "blue wave". Red wall is looking more likely at this point

On one hand majorities tend not to hold control past midterms, on the other these are weird fucking times and the DNC are struggling to so much as put forwards electable candidates.

Normally that's true, but we've got three things that are significantly different this time around:
1) Trump's approval rating has steadily climbed since taking office, and by extension GOP politicians are doing better
2) Most of the seats up for election are in solid red districts
3) Constant media bombardments have the GOP voter base insanely energized, while I would characterize the democratic voter base as lethargic. Republicans seem to be eager and excited, while democrats range from apathetic to depressed

Optimistic projections have the democrats taking a few seats in the house and maintaining current numbers in the senate. By "optimistic" I mean "pipe dream". Realistically they MIGHT gain a seat or two in the house, and it's going to come at the cost of a senate seat. We still have a few months to go, but I expect November to be a net loss for the democrats at this rate.

Because we're lambasted by "muh Russia" day and night despite nothing coming of it yet. I'd rather Trump not start shit with a nuclear superpower over a conspiracy theory. You can find evidence of Russian collusion wherever Iraq left their WMDs. Spoiler alert, the CIA and FBI have a looooong history of trying to start wars.

Kind of funny and a bit terrifying how the Democratic party are now the warhawks. They sure didn't feel this way about Russia a few years ago.

Take a look at this Russian Bot:

Because the entire "Trump is a Russian spy/patsy/plant/traitor" thing is not working, and by pushing it incredibly hard while ignoring that Hillary had been dealing with Russians for decades in uranium and other strategically important goods has rendered the entire thing completely pointless and easily laughed off as just sore losers and hypocrites crying that they lost, calling Trump out despite doing the exact same things they were doing but he actually won
Nobody is going to be convinced by it, because they've been yelling it so long and over essentially nothing that when something actually happens, it's going to just get ignored as grasping at straws because they've been doing exactly that for TWO YEARS NOW

Come on, it didn't work back then, it didn't work last year, it's not working now, and I can assure you it is not going to work next year or the year after that

Everyone was doing business with Russia and saw them as a friend until they became the bad guys after the whole Ukraine fiasco. Sanctions were heavy for Russia but they caused incredible damage to some EU economies as well. ENI, the largest Italian oil&gas company, owned 20% of shares of the South Stream pipeline project. It was going to be one of the biggest business deals of the century, but it all went down the toilet after the EU sanctions and Russia cancelling the entire deal in retaliation.
Also a big chunk of our exports were to Russia, and they also disappeared overnight.

Anyone who isn't dumb wants to have better relations with Russia and go back to how it was before. Well, anyone who lost money from the new cold war. I'm sure a lot of countries managed to actually make a profit from the whole thing, which may be the reason it was started in the first place. This is the sentiment in Italy anyway.

Let's not forget that the reason the entire Mueller probe has gone on as long as it has is because the man is finished once it's over. He's managed to nail a few people around Trump, but he hasn't got a speck of dirt on Trump himself. All he's done so far is charge a few people with money laundering. That's all well and good, but his stalling has made it clear that he's acting in a partisan manner. The day the probe ends is the day his career ends.

We've also got the DNC riding hard on the Russia conspiracy. When the whole thing inevitably collapses, party morale is going to go through the floor (it's bad now, but it hasn't even begun). The public will see that they were so hell bent on rationalizing a conspiracy theory that they would rather sabotage our relations with a global nuclear superpower than admit that the whole thing was unsubstantiated from the start. Shedding the old neoliberal establishment isn't going to fix that PR crisis, because the new far-left wave in the party has been pushing it even harder than they have.

It's inevitable at this point that the party is going to burn. They should have burned in 2016, but they've been living on borrowed time since. What will happen then remains to be seen. The GOP was the party of rabid evangelicals, neoconservatives, and war hawks 5 years ago. Now, they've been pushed far towards the center, and are morphing into a center-right populist party. The old GOP being gone is good for everyone. Imagine if the same happened to the Democratic party. We'd be in better shape than any time I can think of.

This reminds me of Berlusconi. A lot of people around him got nailed and sentenced but he always managed to stay clean (except for a couple minor unrelated things). At the end there was this bunch of people who all selflessly violated the law only to serve Berlusconi's interests, out of the kindness of their hearts, while he was completely unaware of the stuff they did.

I guess that's how you do it.

Also the whole "russian tampering" thing is "the fookin russkies leaked our emails where we openly discussed sabotaging the populist candidate's campaign in the primaries and called our voter base clueless idiots for not supporting Highmother Hillary"

Weird how when wasserman-Schultz got bagged for conspiring to fraud the primaries and resigned from her position she was immediately hired onto the clinton campaign team

It's the astroturfing on social media sites that I can't stand. It was kind of hilarious when websites(reddit, 4chan) would radically change during national holidays because the paid posters were required to take the day off. If there was a way to nip that in the bud internationally I'd be all for it.

No sir you're mistaken. The guys in charge of the "Trump Generals" were paid posters working in shifts to ensure there'd always be a thread up with the correct links.

What does 1 (one) screenshot from 2012 prove? I would've given it more thought had it been from the first /pol/ period and not after its resurrection. Stormfront is small chips, smaller than bodybuilding.com . And yeah 4chan is mainstream now so of course it gets astroturf.

Politically, the big boards(/b/ mainly, but later on /new/, /v/ and /pol/) were mainly left and it has been called a 'far left extremist website' before during the anonymous phase and after as government(Bush at the time) was trying to push all sorts of shit in the name of 'fighting terrorists'. However, as the left became crazier and got power 4chan ended up going libertarian individualists and had the belief that everything works fine as long as people stop being dicks and interfering with eachother, as the far-left was identified as being a threat to them.
After that, it went mainly right wing nationalist, because it turns out if you're a well-meaning libertarian who just wants to be left alone, you're going to just get rolled over by other groups unless you organize in like-minded groups to fight it off.

I 100% believe that if the extreme left died off and all the attempts to force things onto people would stop, 4chan will go back to being libertarians, and then back to being leftists. Think of it like "I just want to play fucking video games and watch anime, stop trying to fuck with my hobbies and life", then just follow that through to the logical conclusion
"I just want to watch anime without government deciding they can cut my internet and throw me in Guantanamo for watching something they dont like" - Bush era
"I just want these people to leave me alone, I'm not hurting them. Just let me watch my anime and play video games" - Early Obama
"What the shit, they're actively trying to fight us and turn our video games into shit, we just want to do our own shit!" - Gamergate
"Fuck it, we're organising in turn, gas them all! Lets help the one person they hate the most get elected and do what we can to fuck their shit up!"- Trump gets elected
And we're still riding that last bit because the far-left continues to push the same shit, thus 4chan goes to the right. And as the EU and other globalist forces try to take freedoms, 4chan naturally becomes nationalistic in response

Stop fucking shit up and these people will all return to being friendly centrists with a slightly left lean.
Unless shit gets fucked up so hard that they refuse to go back, in which case that's going to take a whole lot of time to normalize

I'm not sure that I would call 4chan left-wing or right-wing. They're hardcore contrarians, and do whatever is edgy at the time but with libertarian undertones. Most of the stormfront shit is a deliberate ploy to keep the site repulsive to normies. It's a fascinating strategy, and for the most part it's worked. Expect /pol/ to go full communist once the pendulum swings.

Other boards vary a little. I frequent /g/ and they seem to be pretty hard center-left libertarians.

Some boards have a core political belief/ideology that resists the sway of the site as a whole as part of the culture (which you should be learning hence the phrase "lurk moar" instead of assuming every board is the same). As a whole, 4chan users just want to be left on and don't like being poked with sticks. If shit calms down, they'll go back to being "that board the normies think is the dark web".

Anyone from legacy media is shitting themselves over that statistic. It's the same here in the US. Why do you think they're latching on so hard to "muh drumpf"? There is no other way for them to stay relevant with the youth, and it's not working.

Same shit with newspapers

In their bid to maintain relevancy, they've completely and utterly destroyed their reputation and reliability as news source, with less people buying newspapers every day
Because nobody cares about that shit and the only time people can be arsed to read them is if they're on a train and there happens to be an abandoned newspaper laying there

It's more likely to be AR in the future

Cheaper, easier to edit on the fly and something people can't really complain about (just turn the AR off lmao)

I tried that
Turns out you can't get laser surgery unless you already see pretty decently. Anything else they'll cut open your eye and implant a lens.

A "30 minute procedure" ended up taking 3 hours and the anasthetic wore off 4 times during the surgery. During this time the doctor said things like
"This knife isn't really that sharp, can you hand me the other?"
"No, I think I preferred the other one, can you give it back?"
"Oh, thats a bit of bleeding"
[Annoyed grunts]
"It doesn't usually take this long"
"Let us know if you can see out of the eye again, you're not supposed to."
"I can go for a drink, let's go for a break after this one"

My eyes still give me trouble years later and are painful fairly often

that's kind of wrong judging by the raw amount of papers that go missing from our university library and the number of students I see in the newspaper reading room every day
and this isn't academic journals, either, this is shit like Spiegel, Zeit, Süddeutsche, Neue Züricher Zeitung
