  1. I could give a fuck what party stand for anything - thats my entire point. Vote for PEOPLE who stand for that, or be the PERSON. Voter suppression is only a thing because people aren't die hard about voting. Even me in 2016 - I felt so disenfranchised and disconnected from what the political reality was that I checked out, me and TENS OF MILLIONS of others. I was the problem in 2016, because even though I wouldn't have voted for any candidate state or federal on the ballot I didn't do my part to indicating that I needed something else from a representative government. Imagine if "no vote" by default was counted as a candidate. 138 million Americans only make up 58.1% of our voting-eligible population (those American citizens over 18). 41.9% for the "no one" candidates. Except for the blowout races "no one" would win, it definitely would have won the presidential election. That's how fucked our government is People have completely checked out.
  2. Or people could just you know...vote. imagine 95% turnout and how different our government looks then?
  3. Fear is the anti response and I think that's what has me so mad at people on the board. If you feel fear we have already lost. The correct feeling is one of tenacity. It's time for us to stand up to the bullshit and not accept "the way it is/was" anymore. Not by marching, not by rioting, not by arguing on a message board, but by voting, and by getting involved in the change at a fundamental level no matter how small.
  4. I'm just fed up and reading the RBG thread just has me besides myself with the level of delusion and fear mongering that is happening on this board, which is supposed to be a place for people to talk about sports. Maybe it's just because I've read history or because I have tons of conservative white and non white rural and urban friends who I talk to on a regular basis, but shit isn't this way because of the last 3 years. Mitch Mcconnell didn't just start being an evil spineless piece of shit. Everyone is pretending now that we have a president that broadcasts his playbook out loud instead of doing it in secret that the world is doomed. It's been this way since I've been of voting age - dick cheney did way more horrible shit than Trump even hopes to do as fucking veep. This is the same party that thought that Sarah Palin was a solid vp pick. The GOP has been half stupid for a long time, this cycle they just went full retard and everyone knows you never go full retard. Covid is a global phenomenon that the entire planet is still struggling with, there is 0 chance that even if we got it perfect that the US would be getting back to normal right now. Would there be substantially less damage and death? Probably. That doesn't change that travel domestic and international would have significant restrictions would still be needed until the whole world got things under control. Everyone is just now coming to the realization that RBG was dying, but she has been dying for the last 4 years. It's all bogus and everyone wants to point to something someone is doing that is more and more nefarious than usual, when in reality we have been building this shittastic reality that we live in - all of us are complicit. Real change will never happen until there is no ruling class and until people decide that what happens in local and state government is important to their lives. Looking to a bunch of average at best people who are sent to Washington DC to "make decisions for their constituents" have been literally reduced to blue or red dots and that is the sad truth. There has only been a small handful of meaningful pieces of legislature that has made America more progressive or safer or more prosperous since before 2000, but a whole hell of a lot of bullshit fucking earmarked trash legislation sure as fuck has been passed in that time. You know the best policies? Simple ones that are small. We don't need bills that are 187 pages long we need bills that are 2 pages long so normal people can fucking understand them. The entire United States constitution is only 4500 words and it is responsible for how an entire god damned country is run. How the fuck do we need 381k+ words to talk about how we can get people medical help if they need it and they are citizens? Shit is too fucking complicated for anyone to understand and that's why we need legislators? That's the biggest crock of shit ever. These fucking idiots don't even know how to use email correctly. https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/116/hr6720/text Can anyone tell me what the fuck this piece of garbage legislation even is trying to accomplish? This is why I am so pissed off.
  5. Your first 2 sentences are what is broken with America. Your 3rd sentence is why America is dying.
  6. It's the sad reality that it is where we are especially for the 2020 election. But it doesn't have to be that way in 2022, 2024, 2026 and beyond. Change can't happen this close to the 2020 election, but it can damn sure start for the 2022 election.
  7. keep your blathering going on a sports website tough guy. I hope that all that happens from me talking shit to you is that you grow a pair of fucking stones and do something to help people understand our government better.
  8. I didn't say that affecting change through the ballot are at fault, I said that people who bleed blue and are blindly subscribed to what the Democratic party is bringing to the table are just as much a part of the problem. It's a nuanced difference, but it's disguised because of everyone being so blinded by only having "2 choices", which is not legally or logically binding in any way.
  9. That's 100M+ in the "enough" category. that's not a majority, but it's a whole fucking hell of a lot of people.
  10. How about you go fuck yourself you internet keyboard warrior. Do something about it instead of just talking your stupid fear mongering bullshit on a sports website. fucking scared cunts the lot of you. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  11. Do you want to pull your head out of your ass? How many people who have gone to the grocery store, gone out to eat, done things outside that are a hell of a lot more risky than voting don't come home and have covid? Voting != covid positive I never fucking said 100%, I said going out to vote won't directly cause you to have covid in a fucking vacuum.
  12. Simply put - no. The American people and they are acting like sheep, but the most certainly are not the sheep in this analogy. We the people are the Shepards of the flock, we kill the wolves or let them eat our sheep - The problem you have with the GOP and the power it has because it's figured out a way to squeeze out EC victories despite losing the popular vote by less than 2% is fucking beyond me. Convince 2% of people that you know to stop voting for the GOP, in Texas convice 9% of the people you know to stop voting for the GOP. I'm tired of everyone talking about their friends and neighbors and whoever and how they can't be reasoned with and they are fully on the trump train so you just give up and throw your hands up because they are retarded. The problem is you aren't fucking listening to them. If you are so much smarter than them, why can't you convey a simple message? because it's frustrating? because you are right in terms of absolutes? Convincing someone who you think will be detrimental to the future of our country that their beliefs are to be questioned and give them a reason to rethink whether or not that going out to vote is worth it is where efforts should be concentrated if you want to affect real change. Stop acting like sending some money to some asshole texting people is how people get out to vote. Get in your fucking car and knock on people's doors and ask them if they have voted, and if they haven't if they want a ride to go vote. Ask people you know if they want to talk about what it is they feel like the government is and isn't doing for them and how we can do something about it together instead of making it about rooting for 2 different teams. I'm doing something about this in 2022 and beyond, it's too late to do something for this election. Our democracy is at risk not because of the governing bodies and people in power, but because the people of our country haven't been able to pick from a pool of candidates that are actually representative of who they are as americans.
  13. I'm pretty sure because they have figured out by now that you can go vote in person and not get fucking Covid.
  14. For your own sake you should hope that you are disconnected from the reality of the world we live in. I get it you want to warn everyone that their lives are significantly at risk and there is nothing they can do about it and how they should despair because Trump is a cheater and a liar. Trump can't do shit without millions and millions of other people enabling him to do so. Trump isn't the problem, the millions of people enabling him are.
  15. We don't disagree on a whole lot but his is a bunch of absolute dogshit fear mongering. Abbot has never indicated that he won't have a free and fair election in Texas and wouldn't fight for one against the feds if necessary. Just because people are "playing politics" doesn't make everyone in the GOP a completely morally bankrupt and evil piece of shit hell bent on destroying democracy in their respective part of the world. Save it for some of the idiots on the board, the world isn't out to get anyone any more or less than it has been - politicians have always politicized relationships with members of their own party and the other parties. If Abbot was retweeting or supporting in any way shape or form or being blatantly fucking anti-voter then we would have something to talk about. In fact the opposite has been true and I think that Texas has a really great opportunity especially this year to be a great steward of democracy at a state level. The whole point out of all of this is, Vote. Go Early, Go In Person, Cast your ballot. Early voting was expanded in Texas to say that is a ploy to be anti democracy is fucking bullshit.
