    When is the pandemic over?

    Only 5.5% of the global population is fully vaccinated (which is mainly concentrated in rich countries) and things are still really bad in several countries (especially India), so globally? It's absolutely not over. You could maybe make this argument for the US, but, for example, in Oklahoma the...

    I agree with the general message of your post, but how is "third party" being defined here? I ask because if you interpret this as it's written, then this is just patently false; Jo Jorgensen was a third party candidate running in this election, was on the ballot in all 50 states + DC, and...

    Serious Sex Work (No Links)

    There will always be people willing to pay for sex and there will always be people willing to sell. I think viewing sex work as something inherently non-consensual is at best reductive and at worst sexist. Here in the US, with prostitution criminalized, we see it pushed underground, creating...

    Someone get me a cigarette, I feel like now's a good time to start smoking On a serious note, it's clear to me that Joe Biden is mainly going to benefit from Trump's disastrous response to COVID-19 with Trump not taking it seriously and Trump fighting efforts to expand vote by mail (PSA...

    Since then, I've stopped voting for third party candidates because I acknowledge that they have no serious shot of winning and only take votes away from major party candidates who can actually accomplish some level of meaningful change

    "Every four years?" 2016 was literally the first presidential election I was eligible to vote in. I was 17 years old in 2012.

    At the time, I preferred "where is aleppo" guy over Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. If you're gonna keep targeting me with shit like this then I'm just gonna hit the "ignore" button and be done with your shit

    I picked Option C once. This was in the 2016 election, where I voted for Gary Johnson. It's good to constantly talk about wanting more options, but the issue is that the way our electoral system is set up means that third party candidates are doomed from the start. Anybody who isn't in either...

    Quick update on this. Currently up to 277 wins and still going. Being close to 300 wins and still never having gone for Clear Smog even once makes it basically official that Thunderbolt would be better on Weezing. Adapting this team into a form for a no Dynamax streak would also be fairly...

    Serious 2020 Democratic Primary Thread

    The issue with it is that how the electoral process works here very strongly encourages tactical voting. There are tons of people whose beliefs are more in line with the Green Party (which is by any measure more progressive than the Democratic Party) who nonetheless vote for Democratic...

    Are you being deliberately dense? My entire point said nothing about whether or not Biden is the progressive candidate (he's not); the sole point is that you weren't progressive if you stopped giving a shit about progress as soon as the best-case scenario ceased to be an option. Learn how to...

    Hot Takes

    Alright, this little thing I bolded makes me have to bring up one more hot take: People who constantly rag on about how Biden would certainly lose to Trump are entirely basing it on the fact that they personally don't like Joe Biden and are completely ignoring any data that says otherwise, just...

    I voted third party in 2016, and let me tell you what my experiences then were: We cannot be encouraging third party voting when we don't have ranked-choice voting because it only enables the "whining about green party voters" described in your take. Unfortunately, we live in a system where...

    All of the Bernie Bros saying they won't vote for Joe Biden never truly cared about progress. To be more specific, to them, nobody but Bernie Sanders would change this country enough. If you're willing to let this country burn for four more years under Trump just because the guy the Democrats...

    It's easy to say this, but I'd personally like to see the Green Party get elected to lower offices first and prove they're able to govern instead of them jumping straight to making runs for President, where people can just point fingers at them for spoiling the election whenever a Democrat loses.

    I'm not sure why Bernie supporters still seem so convinced that Joe Biden will lose to Trump. To me, it's starting to feel like it's not based on any objective reasoning and based entirely on how Bernie Sanders' supporters feel subjectively about Joe Biden as a candidate. But as for actual...
