He's term-limited in 2018. Hopefully we can have Chiang instead of Newsom.

Agreed. Chiang would be a great Governor.

The next GE is in fecking 2020, gee, chill out a bit everyone. The Tories will have a great opportunity to feck up Brexit until then, and maybe the #publicopinion will start to realize that what they need right now is less neoliberalism and a bit more left-wing policies. Or not. Let's see, shall we ?

This.

Why is everyone crapping all over Santander? I don't like him any more than the next guy, but at least I can respect him somewhat. Jeez

IDK, maybe it's because he's a racist troll?

If you seriously thought this was a possibility, you were being quite delusional. There was never a realistic scenario where the dems would get all the power: House Majority, 60 Senate Seats, Presidency

Huh? I never said any of that. You just defined 'destroyed' the way you wanted then called me delusional based on your own incorrect assumption. Good job?

By 'destroy' I meant a large win in the presidential popular vote that would reverberate downticket and help us take back competitive state legislature chambers that we've lost, which is entirely possible even without a landslide. For the Senate, my perfect (and realistic), best-win scenario for Democrats is probably a max of +8 seats, which is still very unlikely right now. For the House, a majority is a huge long shot and we'll be lucky to pick up 20+ seats based on current polling.

So no, 'destroy' meant almost none of what you said.

You can thank, in advance, President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, ex-majority leader Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer for endorsing/pushing for corporatist Democrats Patrick Murphy (Florida), Ted Strickland (Ohio), and Katie McGinty (Pennsylvania). None of them will win. And this may be the case for Reid’s would-be successor in Nevada.



McGinty will win IMO.

No idea who that is (I have no interest in sports) but the guy was only 24 with a child on the way. Absolutely tragic.

Class I has pretty much the only good Senators (Sanders, Brown, and Warren) so it's not a hard choice.

I'll give it another two episodes or so; it seems rather predictable with current characters

For sure. I always like to have something to watch, though, so I plan on continuing it while not having particularly high expectations for it story-wise.
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: The Amazing Atheist: Vote for Trump on: September 24, 2016, 04:59:52 pm

This is really freaking stupid but do you actually think he's sexist? lol

     I doubt any of them have actually ever watched one of his videos.

I actually got into politics more than a half decade ago partially because of his videos so yeah, I've seen plenty of his videos. Anyway, he's a disgusting rape sympathizer who is certainly a sexist:

Quote from: TheAmazingAtheist
Rape isn't fatal. So imagine my indignation when I saw a chatroom called "Rape Survivors." Is this supposed to impress me? Someone ed you when you didn't want to be ed and you're amazed that you survived? Unless he used a chainsaw instead of his dick, what's the big deal? I don’t mean to be horrendously offensive and insensitive here, but everyone survives rape. The word survivor applies to people who are alive after being stabbed 73 times with an ice pick or mauled by rabid wolverines, not to a woman who gets dick when she doesn't want it. Just because you got raped, you have to rape the English language? You vindictive bitch! Also, don't you ever get tired of being the victim? How many failed relationships are you going to blame on a single violation of your personal space?

Also, on Reddit, he made a joke about how he wanted to rape a specific Reddit user, who turned out to be an actual rape victim. When he was called out for being insensitive to people with PTSD, he "posted further graphic descriptions of how he would rape her again in a deliberate attempt to make her relive her trauma." according to his Wikipedia page.

I don't really have any specific people in mind, but I'd want a group of radicals representing a wide variety of backgrounds, causes, and perspectives.

President: SWE
Vice President: Someone who believes in more or less the same stuff as me, but brings some geographic and cultural diversity to the ticket. A woman of color from the South would probably be a logical choice.

Secretary of State: Anti-war activist
Secretary of the Treasury:  Marxist economist
Secretary of Defense: Anti-imperialism activist, ideally somebody from a county that was a victim of US imperialism
Attorney General: National Lawyer's Guild member
Secretary of Commerce: Marxist economist
Secretary of Labor: Union organizer
Secretary of HHS: Someone from Doctors Without Borders
Secretary of HUD: Tenant activist
Secretary of Energy:  Ecosocialist activist
Secretary of Transportation: Transportation workers union organizer
Secretary of the Interior: Ecosocialist activist
Secretary of Agriculture: Farm co-op member
Secretary of Homeland Security: Abolish
Secretary of Education: Public school teacher
Secretary of VA: Veteran anti-war activist

Looks fantastic to me, though before abolishing DHS I'd probably appoint someone associated with #NotOneMore who would refuse to enforce our barbaric deportation laws (ideally, Transgender activist Isa Noyola who is associated with said group, would be my choice). As for some specific names: I'd recommend Medea Benjamin for Secretary of State and Richard Wolff for Secretary of the Treasury. and

No. The only privilege tax I would support is a tax on rich privilege.

If you're a Fortune 100 CEO, you're a very smart, hard-working, highly successful person. That, of course, doesn't mean that millions of other people aren't also all of those qualities, but if I were running for president, I would want the support of all 100 of them. You (should) always want the smart, successful people on your side.

Came here to post this.

The Republicans aren't the working class party and that won't change with this election.  Whites love to overlook that many members of the working class are actually minorities.  Go figure!

Hate to break it to you dude, but the working class vote has been voting Republican for quite awhile now.

Um... no? Try again.

Unless we're only talking about the white working-class, by what metric is that true?

Don't you know? In Republican fantasy land, blacks don't count as working class. To GOPers, black people are no more than welfare queens who leech off the "hard working rich" and only vote Democrat so that they can receive their free Obamaphones or whatever other nonsense they believe.

antisemitism will always be a problem, unfortunately.

Only so long as class society, which produces it and uses it to divide the public into easily exploitable groups, exists.

Richard Neal, definitely. Though he is too moderate for MA-1.

Would be great if he ended up as Ambassador to Ireland as one person in this thread suggested do someone better could take his seat.

Flowers is the best name ever for a Green candidate. Cheesy

Imagine if she's the 2020 Green Presidential nominee, and she chooses writer Chris Hedges as her running mate. "Flowers-Hedges" would be the GOAT name for a Green Party ticket.
