General Politics Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I don't give a shit about Brexit. I don't give a shit about Theresa May. I don't give a shit about 'politics.' I don't give a shit whether you're on the 'left' or the 'right' (two wings of the same predatory bird of prey).
 

I give a shit about freedom, and make no mistake about it, freedom is 100 percent incompatible with 'politics.'
 

Government, at its very core, represents the destruction of free will, and I have no interest in stifling the free will of my brothers and sisters.
 

Each man and woman has the right to pursue their own goals, attain fortune and happiness, provided they are not violating the free will of, or imposing their will upon, other sentient beings.

So yea, listen to Elvis. Stop trying to control the actions of your fellow man and 'vote' your way to freedom. It is a foolish endeavor.

Uh, if he is a piece of shit then yeah, he gets used until he's no longer useful.

 

 

That testimony came under oath from a woman who knew Kavanaugh, why in the world wouldn't Avenatti drop it? This is sounding more like the stupidest thing you've ever said.

 

 

Wow what a massive moral failing that would be.

The girl said she witnessed multiple gang rapes at parties and still went to said parties. Bringing that forward without any evidence or corroborating testimony, is fucking ********. If the left wasn't so biased against Trump they would know that. What you said is still really dumb.

 

Maybe you and "everyone" on the left knew he was a piece of shit. I'll give you that for free. But it's incredibly stupid to think he helped the cause.

Refusing to vote (which is the only institutional mechanism to allow for change) in an otherwise totalitarian system is stupid. It gives up the thing people before you died for. It is no coincidence that the authorities try as hard as they can to suppress voter turnout. I'm not saying voting solves everything, it is a tool to be used in accordance to others (a diversity of tactics) to shape the world to what you see as more fairer. Fairness can be achieved in spite of the government. It is a necessary evil and can be shaped to create fairness.

 

This is why everyone regardless of political persuasion or opinion should support Ocasio-Cortez. The term Democratic Socialist is a silly label.

She is supporting full employment, sensible price stability, leaving resources for the sick so no one is left behind and providing education opportunities for all.

 

None of these are 'free shit' examples. It is equality of opportunity.

 

The real farce is Democrat and Republican fiscal policy designed to deny people work and subject them to welfare and ridicule.

Welfare by design is degenerative and price inflationary.

I don't like Cortez's policies but it's a good thing that outsiders can win elections. I would much prefer money to be out of politics.

 

I feel like we might horseshoe on some issues.

Force amazon and Walmart to pay their workers a living wage so they can get off food stamps and government assistance. You know, so the American people don’t have to foot the bill.

Here's the post from above, some things to think about.

 

 

Former red team planner for the government here.

 

If there was a revolution in the US, the rest of the world would get involved, fast. Depending on the type of uprising, there is a large chance that it would not be a quick affair. It would be brutal, it would be bloody, and the US government could start a global scale war. Here are the top ten issues that came up.

 

1) The US power grid can be taken down by a series of “surgical strikes” with the exception of the Texas grid. By surgical strikes, I mean a few marksmen (US army-tier Marksmen–the minimum requirement) hitting certain spots on the grid would **** a lot of the military and government because they need the grid more than 'Bubba and his friends' do. Additionally, while all government agencies have backup generators, they will be hard pressed dealing with the resultant looting and other madness that would come with power outages. This would effectively create another front for the military. It would also turn the people against the government more quickly and paralyze the government’s propaganda machine. Worse still–the key points of the US power grid are publicly obtainable information, and not only are the points too many to be effectively guarded, they are not guarded anyway.

 

2) The estimated desertion rate in case of a civil war is 75% in the case of a left-wing president. 50% of that would be assumed to immediately betray the president. The remaining (treasonous) military would be fighting its own. Yet another front created in the war. Additionally, there is an assumed 25-50% desertion or outright betrayal rate in three letter government agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, ATC, TSA, etc.). Additionally, it is assumed that 5% of the initial 50% betrayers would stay in their job and become saboteurs. 10% of that 50% would contain key information that would be of critical danger to the US government. Of that 10%, 1% would be able to deliver that information to the US’ foreign enemies. What you should get from this is that the second the United States government declares war on its own is the second it ceases to exist as the state we know it.

 

3) “Tea baggers,” “right-wing extremists,” and “oath keepers” which are considered untrained racists who aren’t “good with a gun” often are A) veterans who now have more time to have fun at the range, sometimes more than some Army units or Marine units. In addition to previous military training, B) often camp and do other outdoor activities–more than many in the military do, as the focus has gone away from field exercises, and C) often have better equipment–outside of armor and heavy weapons–than the military. However, C) is kind of irrelevant because many of the places in which these people could hide would make the kind of war the US fights with the equipment they use pointless.

 

4) Outside influence is a huge problem. Russia has already stated they would back a Texas separatist movement, and right now we already have enough problem keeping Islam in check. The second the US has to fight in a “civil war” is the second it becomes a proxy war between NATO and whoever wants to mess with America. While America has amazing nuclear and air defense, if it comes to a civil war you have to assume that in a best cast scenario the US military is going to be operating at 50% capacity at best. **** would go down. Hard. And fast. And if Russia–spoiler alert: one of the best militaries in the world at fighting in an urban environment–sent trainers and helpers to rebels, you can reliably bet that they would also possibly deliver weapons to them. So instead of fighting “Timmy TeaBagger,” you are fighting “Timmy TeaBagger who is buddies with Vlad.”

 

5) A civil war is not just the US versus the rebels. There will be looting. There will be rioting. Cities will burn. The National Guard cannot fight both the rebels and rioters in a city that would also cut off their supplies. Additionally, if you don’t think that the rebels will send in instigators into the cities–or worse, stand alone actors (A Lone Wolf on steroids. Think Timothy McVeigh, but instead of one van they have a whole fleet of them. A good movie example would be Bane)–you would be mistaken. If the US government cannot even help its own people, why would its own people support the remaining (treasonous) military? Worse yet, if someone emptied out prisons (There are more prisoners in the US than there are people in the entire Chinese Army), you would have more crime than the police could ever handle.

6) Logistics and infrastructure in the US are crumbling and failing. Any war fought against a rebellion in the US would be a logistical nightmare, even before the rebels started going full Al-Qaida and putting IEDs in the road. A retired general who was contracting with us on the team said, “The only thing holding together the US’ infrastructure is duct tape and the will of the Department of Transportation. And often enough, there isn't enough duct tape.” Your most loyal cities to the US government, as we polled, are also the most logistically easy to cut off. NYC? San Fran? L.A.? D.C.? Baltimore? Most of them require crossing water to enter, from certain directions. Most of them have critical airports. Some of them have critical ocean ports. If anything happened to just TWO of the cities on the list, it would create a logistical cluster****.

 

7) Your “Johnny Reb” and “Timmy TeaBagger” states (i.e., “red” states) all have something most of your “oh so progressive,” “Aren’t we so European,” “Oh my god, we are just like Sweden,” blue states don’t. Blues are mainly consumer states. Reds are producer states. Urban areas don’t have farms. The second that **** goes down, realize a lot of those blue areas are likely to starve. In a civil war scenario, we predicted that at least 10,000 people would die of starvation if the war was not finished in a year. The numbers get worse after that. Or better, rather, for the country after the war.

 

8) The US has way too many choke points, and the government forces would often be on the wrong side of them. This ties into the logistical nightmare, but it also has to do with an odd phenomena. Liberals like to live near the ocean. Many of the dividers of the country, like the Rocky Mountains, the Mississippi River, Appalachia, the Missouri River (fun fact: the biggest choke point for the US government is in Missouri) are red state areas. Sure, air travel is a thing, but a majority of the US government's needs would have to travel by ground. Even still, many of the major airports are outside of the city. Of course, the US would use military base air fields, but if civil war did break out… which bases would be safe? Which ones would have fallen to the deserters?

 

9) PR Nightmare. Every rebel killed on CNN would be spun as “the US government killed X Civilians today in a strike” on foreign news and pirate media not owned by the government. That is–as pointed out earlier–if the US media could even function in a civil war or uprising. Your “rebel scum” know that the main thing that holds together the US–nay life in the US as we know it–is the 24 hour news cycle and the media. The second it's gone, you are going to have urban anarchy. If you are from America, can you imagine a day without TV, newspaper, or Internet? Your average urban youth can’t. If you don’t think that isn’t going to cause rioting, you must have a real high regard for how much restraint they have. Assume in a civil war that your ability to talk to the people is compromised. Also assume that in the case of a civil war that rebels may know how to monitor conversations like the US does, as there are manuals online on how to do so.

 

10) This one is either 1 or 10, depending on who is asked. The US will never nuke its own. The second it does, they have lost the civil war and other countries will come to “liberate” the US from its own “repressive regime.” Additionally, if any general, minuteman, nuke tech, or nuke sub captain decided to side with the rebellion, the US government is immediately SOL. In short: The second that a “civilian uprising” or “extremist group terrorist attack” turns into “civil war” is the second the US loses. As a result, you will never see a civil war. You will see Waco, you will see Bundy Ranch, you will see all sorts of militant group confrontations and maybe even some skirmishes. But the US government fears its own people way the **** too much to ever start a civil war.

It not being a trial doesn't mean the person making the claim doesn't have the burden of proof.

 

This defense works better on people who think that the left was trying to jail kav. Obviously they weren't doing that.

So Kavanaugh being apart of a gang rape social circle is pretty damning and should not be representing the law with those kinds of social credentials lmao

A bunch of rag tag revolutionaries took on a heavily armed US backed Cuban military and won.

 

This idea that armed insurrection doesn't work is what the authorities want you to think.

Socially conservative and fiscally liberal is ok by me as long as we shut down the borders. It doesn't work if we have to pay for every Tom, Dick and Geraldo that's jumping the border for free shit.
