It’s hard to take you seriously when you say shit like this
What you get for trying to take people seriously that think like this. 'My details matter more than yours and I don't like that he won last time so we're doing our best to stop him now, no matter the cost.'

If you're alluding to the covid pandemic, as far as I can tell the chart is referencing to numbers from last November.

This article, current as of July 2020, doesn't really support that graph's validity. If it's anything to go by, Reagan increased the debt by ~1.9 trillion, Bush senior by ~1.5 trillion, Clinton by ~1.4 trillion, Bush junior by ~5.8 trillion, and Obama by ~8.5 trillion.

It does show that Trump is a big spender though. Apparently his planned budgets will sum up to an ~8.3 trillion increase over both terms. Pretty bad, but also comparable to Obama, who didn't have the COVID crisis to deal with.

But congress needs to give something back for all the bribes the private military industry has given them.

Would you be okay if Mitch McConnell expanded the SC tomorrow and filled it with Republican appointees, then? After all, if 9 seats are not enough, why not add more seats right now?
Obama oversaw a recession with several orders of magnitude more success. His failure to handle covid properly is his fault. In any case, the chart doesn't even include Covid

Image

No I would not be okay with Mitch expanding the seats, because as a pragmatist I give zero fucks about civility politics and care about the consequential damage to human rights. Mitch McConnell has repeatedly proven that he doesn't give a fuck either and has broken norm after norm proving it so playing the "THEN WHY DON'T THEEEEEEY DO IT" game is idiotic.
What you get for trying to take people seriously that think like this. 'My details matter more than yours and I don't like that he won last time so we're doing our best to stop him now, no matter the cost.'
Oh my god you're so close. "My facts are more relevant and accurate than yours" Yes. Thank you. Exactly. No wonder you crashed and burned as an admin lmao you literally dispute objective realities because they're inconvenient.

And yes I will always support harm reduction in any area where possible and practicable. When the current president is actively harmful replacing him with a potato would reduce harm. I don't have to like uncle joe to know he'll do less damage and actually push some fucking climate change legislation before we all burn to death.

Also, compare the fact that Obama drove up debt to offer an actual healthcare option to millions of people, essentially trying to decommodify portions of healthcare to stop people dying, and Trump did it to provide the top 1% a nice big tax cut (They now pay less tax than the bottom 50% of households for the first time in history).

After the tax cuts, economic growth did not increase, hiring slowed and wage growth didn't move at all. He spent a trillion just to give money to the richest in the country, while Obama tried to provide healthcare.

I don't give a fuck about Obama but conflating these two cements your stupidity

it was my hope 4 years ago that this election might be more sane than the one at the time

I was completely fucking wrong

This one is honestly worse than last time and I don't think the arguments for and against anything have gotten better. Honestly, it feels the same as 4 years ago.

anyways though, I ended up voting for Biden in the most begrudging way possible.

I don't agree with him socially, I probably don't agree with him economically, and I definitely don't like his party. But god damn, I cannot see myself having Trump in office for another 4 years. America can't stay as a leader in the world with that dude in power with the amount of hatred that he gets from other countries. Japan, South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand are already drifting further away from NATO and these past 4 years have further isolated the US from their allies with this protectionism in the economy that is not sustainable. A 33% tariff works both ways with the US and China and honestly a more open US economy is going to be the only way into the future.

additionally, although I think the green new deal is batshit insane: I don't really think that Trump's current policy of subsidizing the coal and oil industry is going to be good for the economy and the environment as a whole. This shit reeks of a global catastrophic meltdown within the century that I don't want to deal with. Granted, I think Trump was right that other countries aren't paying their fair share when it comes to adjusting to this crisis since developing countries are still polluting en-masse. It's not wrong that they didn't have time to develop industrially like we did, though I don't think the Earth cares about that.

In any event, what a shit election. I just want to see the US stay strong and I don't think further isolating other countries with Trumps strong arm diplomacy is going to do us any favors in the future.

If a less nationalistic and protectionist conservative is nominated next election, I can imagine I know where my vote will go.

FDR of all presidents was the last guy to try "fuck the supreme court I'm just gonna add judges who don't overrule me". If FDR couldn't get that through no way either of those mouthbreathers will.

I honestly can't find anything on msm about pro trump and doesn't that seem weird to you? is being forced in one of two directions really freedom? is having only two directions at all really freedom? lol I'm not voting so don't get me wrong this isn't complaining about who wins who loses I think the whole thing has been fucked for honestly a long time and the way our technology has changed has just fucked whatever system we have up completely, there is no possible way that the people who founded usa could have ever imagined what our tech would look like now and people think the system they built can still run smoothly?

Only be open with countries you want to associate with. Lay down conditions they have to follow. International trade is not all-or-nothing. Just because you want to trade with Italy does not mean you also have to trade with North Korea.

I voted in noncompetitive federal, senate and house races. The polling place was a government building and the only street leading in had yard signs for only one party literally on public property. The singular local election was a state house seat with just one candidate running. I had to wait in line for about an hour.

Meanwhile if I had skipped the hassle I woulda saved myself an hour AND got out of jury duty!

FDR's goal was actually not to have more justices on the Supreme Court, it was to have the court stop striking down New Deal legislation. After threatening court packing, the court did an about face and upheld legislation they previously declared unconstitutional. So really FDR got exactly what he wanted.

Trump is a constant shitshow of new lows so of course when the men who have sex with men reports on him they have to cover it and whatever good he's done for the country and/or his supporters (dunno lol) is overshadowed by his constant fuck-ups and audacious violations of political, social and legal norms. It's hard to portray Trump in a good light without ignoring, misrepresenting or lying about most of what he does. There's also the fact that the mainstream media is not unlike clickbait headlines online in that they have learned to leverage outrage and base emotion in order to get views. So simply going "Trump didn't do something terrible today!" is not newsworthy (although really it would be).

Also I feel old as fuck every day especially on here with these 20 year old whippersnappers and yet I was not old enough to know about what was going on in the media before 2000. So for me too Bush is the last President whose presidency I remember. But I'm pretty sure Reagan wasn't much beloved. Bush Sr. too. And Clinton had that whole blowjob thing. I'm guessing if any of them had been as bad as Trump all you would've been hearing about them would've been negative too.

To be fair, Reagan won literally every state bar (correction - 6 in his first term against the incumbent Carter and 2 in his re-election campaign) 1, even if this was partially due to his opponents being amazingly unpopular (I imagine Hillary wanted to do this vs trump but she was entirely unlikeable).

An interesting night to be sure.

Trump already stating that the democrats are trying to steal the election before it's even over. Even if Biden wins there will need to be a lot of effort put towards fixing the democratic functioning of the country. The way Trump and his party have campaigned and run roughshod over the very laws and conventions of the US system will not be fixed overnight.

You're supporting the people who want to abolish the electoral college, retard.

There are pros and cons to the electoral college.

It balances public representation and state representation.

There are reasons for wanting to abolish it and reasons for reform and also wanting to keep it. For instance whether your belief is that the majority of Americans is more important or majority of States is more important.

Edit:

For example, three of the Founding Fathers wanted to change the way the Electoral College currently performs as they saw it as an abuse of democracy. Jefferson, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton wanted to amend the college to force states to use the district system. Where electors would be chosen by the voters of districts and not chosen by a particular political party or figure.

We got rid of FPP in like '96. I don't know if MMP is optimal but it's better than the candidate with less votes winning.

FPTP is a really shitty voting system. I quite liked the MMP (known as AMS in the UK for some reason) system that the Scottish Parliament uses.

Wow, Trump won. How? Speaking as righty myself who knew Trump was going to win in 2016 before the primary voting even started. How did he win THIS time?

The guy aped through 4 years of incompetence with scandal after scandal after scraping through by the skin of his teeth in 2016. How did his election performance not go absolutely down the toilet? Or at least enough to just lose this time?

Burgers, you confuse me.

He hasn't won yet, despite his own pronouncements.
