That would be an absolute disaster because people would be voting completely selfishly on issues they don’t even understand.
Big news day over here but in the states shit has taken a big shambling lurch closer to implosion…
The new tax bill contains within it a number of provisions redefining what a viable pregnancy is, opens up protected wilderness for resource stripping, and has transferred upwards of a trillion dollars to the one percent. They have plans in the works to cut CHIP, too.
Meanwhile the J20 protesters are getting barely any coverage which recognises the trials for what they are, there are genuine rumblings of an imminent war with either Iran or NK, and John McCain needs more twitter followers…
Feel very fortunate the next election is ours to lose tbh.

You gotta appease to please
Can’t wait for a particularly incompetent and murderous international Gestapo to kick down my front door.
Moving the us embassy to Jerusalem which will cause major bloodshed.
just read about that. heartbreaking for the palestinians. seen some scary talk of it being part of a wider strategy of provoking war with iran, too. the americans would get absolutely lit up if they tried that, it’s absolute madness.

Note, the article has come in for heavy criticism - I am referring mainly to the ludicrousness of the Tweets.
I’ve seen this discussed in a few other corners, can’t really get myself to feel much aside from schadenfreude over this tbh
Who knew that allying yourself with male reactionaries would have consequences as far as them recognizing your rights as an individual.
lost for words really.
Maybe it’s more appropriate for the heavy-handed satire thread, but I thought this tweet nicely summed up Trump’s claim that current efforts hadn’t yet brought piece
it’s okay, he’s woke as fuck now:
