    Myzo brings up a good point. If your fighting the system consists of voting off brand every 4 years, you're not really trying.

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    I mean I voted green last federal election. And voted third party the one before that, and the one before that. But that's because candidates from all sides were not fighting against the very concept of democracy. I'm pretty damn dedicated to changing the electoral system, but not in the...

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    You don't have to do anything. You take the options as presented to do you, and try to figure out what would result in the better outcome over the next 4 years. I'm not going to argue your image of Biden vs. your image of Trump. All I'm saying is what the candidates are going to do over the...

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    I hate to be the guy defending Biden. I had him as last place in my choices for the nomination. But there are bigger things at stake here, and an accountable Biden beats out anything the republicans have to offer. Democrats eat their own. Even when they're in power. Biden will be on thin ice...

    Left wing american politics is so puritan. Constantly trying to eat itself up. I wish progressives would be more forward thinking, looking at what would get the country on the right track, rather than constantly looking at history. We are talking about an instance that may or may not have...

    Trump's going to win. Why would Trump hold an election Trump wouldn't win? GG liberals.

    You can spin it all you want but Joe Biden saying "Nothing will fundamentally change" is a blunder no matter how you look at it.

    Biden's probably not going to do that much damage to the democratic party. His reasons for running have been clear from the start: he thinks he's the most suited to beat Trump. I'm not convinced he has long term plans for the democratic party. Even in the event that he wins, I'm not convinced...

    serious coronavirus thread

    That frame is the type of thing I wouldn't catch unless it was directed at me, and still don't really have a good gauge for how 'bad' it is. I kinda hope China won't be able to brush off international attention for this like they have been able for Hong Kong and Xinjiang. But you're right that...

    I mean I'm sure I said it. There's definitely a lot of subjectivity on how I apply it to each case though (which imo, there should be). In Kavanaugh's case, I think it was pretty clear from his testimony that he was not appropriate for the supreme court. Any of a number of other republicans...

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    There's a part of me that wishes candidates weren't defined by their actions 30 years ago. I'm more concerned about how they've acted recently, and how they reflect on their actions from long ago. In this sense, it's plainly obvious how Trump sexual assault history is still relevant, and...

    Voting Biden only matters if you're in one of like 5 states. In the other 90%, down ballot races are far more important.

    Hot Takes

    This is what I was talking about in my first post. By calling yourself an ally you're either saying your own perspective doesn't matter, abdicating personal responsibility, or you're signal boosting what you think minorities go through. But without actual experiences, how can you be sure you get...

    serious coronavirus thread

    Eo I'm not disputing the fact there is systematic xenophobia that has been inflamed as a result of the coronavirus. My main issue is that you jumbling real concerns with China's role in the coronavirus with xenophobic rhetoric. There are plenty of reasons to be concerned with China's handling...

    Hot Takes

    I love the recent hot takes. On one hand we have "pedophiles are bad" and on the other hand "nurses are all attention whores (sexism implied)." This is what online forums are for.
