There’s no difference in the US and I think we’ve discussed how patriotism =\ nationalism itt before.

At this point it’s more likely that Trump is paying the caravan than Soros, conservative landscape is obsessed.

Tbf, John Fogerty was CCR.

I see Trump broke 43% approval at 538 first time in ~600 days. Malagua not here to proclaim triumph is a good sign for us.

Oh ****. 500 points by 1030 is a bad sign. Unless it triggers some rebound buying, this can get bad in a hurry

Tut tut, libs. The Amazon Washington Post gives you Four Pinnochios for... stating that Mitch McConnell and the Republicans want to gut entitlements.

My favorite part is when their fact checkers concede that well yes of course that has always been a goal of Republicans by and large, but they failed to push their agenda through in the past, ergo they would not push it through if they had more power.

Trump still gets to pack the courts, tho. The 9th Circuit might just find the whole state of California unconstitutional.

Hey man we're all gamblers here. No matter how bad the odds we will never encounter a better risk/reward possibility than this evening, assuming the approx. 80% chance a winner hits tonight. Obv if the universe hits it's 1/5 outter tonight, the jackpot will be close to 2.5 billion next time with an almost guaranteed hit.

That would mean we could easily secede, right?

Posted a quote from this article in the Fox thread because it cites a study saying Fox is basically responsible for viability of modern GOP. Article also basically explains WaPo type fact checks are like bringing a balloon to a knife fight.

Yes but when we inevitably see a recession by 2020, he just blames obstructionist democrats, wins in a landslide for a second term.

I know we need the house but I feel this outcome is inevitable.

Trump pushing all the buttons to remind the people why they voted for him.

Anyway, TrumpBot currently has the 23rd most posts in this thread despite only existing here for 4 months. To me, that's insane.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Individual-1

Impeachment without the votes already in the senate (which will never happen) to me looks like a huge political blunder. Obviously keep investigating and make him look weak--an impeachment hearing will do the exact opposite. He gets to style all over dems and win vs them on it.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Individual-1

It is relevant at this time to look at just why people from Honduras are fleeing their own country en masse to try to come to the United States. It is also relevant to remember that internationalism is the only thing that can defeat nationalism. We have to smash all borders if we truly want to see the fascists lose for good--it's the only way that the working people of the whole world can join their forces and have a thriving society going forward.

Remember the huge backlash the Rs faced after pointlessly voting to repeal Obamacare 53 times? What a bloodbath that was.
