I wonder if the Republicans will try to pass legislation that obstructs our right to Vote in order to mitigate the November elections.
Fuck that garbage, people need to get fucking angry. This is NOT OKAY. Fight for your fucking country before it devolves into a fascist hellhole.
I'm certain it will. People are already pissed and this will help.
This is completely true. GOP voters reliably turn out where Dem voters don't - it's why midterms and off-year elections have historically had whiter electorates than Presidential years.this is absolutely not true, voter apathy is a problem for both parties. But since the Dem base is naturally larger, it's a bigger problem for Dems. And since the electoral system is geared to over-represent rural areas and under-represent cities, where the Dems do exactly what you just said GOP voters do. They just vote for the D next to their name.y.
Do you have any sources for Bernie supporting Trump in the primaries? A quote or statement or something.Bernie probably would have beaten Trump. Only problem is Bernie was gunning for Trump during the primaries rather than Hilary. Of course some of this can be laid on the media who kept reporting Hilary being ahead non-stop due to the super delegates, but I feel like the fault lies mostly with Bernie.
He would have won.
I don't know what this post even means.
What about the past 18 months suggests things won't get worse?
And we're gonna be here for quite some time. Here's hoping we start giving a damn abut the SC in future elections which requires us to participate instead of crying about the system on the sidelines.
That's ridiculous. She will not let trump replace her until she dies. Because she knows a 6-3 majority is much worse than a 5-4, and it matters for decades not just for the trump era.

Can we stop the 2016 cat fights? It's over. It's 2018 now. Trump won, and now we're here. We need to figure out how to make the best of this, not keep relitigating the last election. Thanks.
Do you actually legitimately think that will happen?
She tried to tell you dummies.
Will things get worse RIGHT NOW? Do we have to panic at this very minute about every single bad thing that is going to happen in the future?
Not a chance. Ginsburg will cling to that seat in the hopes of depriving the conservatives of a 6-3 majority.
Yeah why let republicans have 5-4 decisions, when she can let them have 6-3 decisions. good call. probably won't affect the next democrat we have in the white house.
Seriously this 2016 shit is stupid and pointless if you didn't get your ass up to vote in 2016 reguardless of the candidate. Its on the voters who didn't vote and didn't understand the stakes. Elections are bigger than the people we elect to power.
I'm with a campaign right now but it's worth letting people know what bad shit is gonna happenI don't know what this post even means.
There's nothing anyone in this thread can do RIGHT NOW about Kennedy retiring. Trump WILL pick his replacement and he WILL be confirmed, so why keep piling on bad thing after bad thing all at once instead of letting it process over the next few days?
Take a deep breath and get ready for some serious fights in the future.
If they had their way the minimum voting age would be 25 and multiple forms of ID would be required at the booths. Oh and they'd probably push for a requirement to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and the Our Father before going in as well, as a modern day version of Literacy Tests.
Hey I'm Canadian. I'll be fine (for the most part). I'm worried about my sister and her family though.She tried to tell you dummies.
On several fucking occasions. But some of the electorate can't see past Thursday, so shallow shit like "likability" and "favorite color" take a higher position for voting decisions (or apathy) than the prospect of 3 or more Supreme Court picks. I guess people need to lean by way of pain why people have literally fought and died to give us the right to vote. Why people in power fought tooth and nail to stop women and people of color from voting for literally hundreds of years. A right many even posting here shit on in the last 2 elections, casually and flippantly misusing or failing to take the shit seriously.
When the decisions start coming in over the next 20 years that hurt the people around you in ways that make you feel ashamed, remember these days and how your action or inaction contributed.
"Berniebros" were Russian bots.
