Good news for Democrats today, 100% of independents voted in favor of impeachment.

 

They will win the WH for sure.

It’s pretty wild when your evidence is ‘so damning’ that it..... Only convinces 4 of your own party members to vote against Impeachment.

 

lmao what a sham

I just knew this would be someones argument.

If you want any hope of a political career voting against party lines is suicide. This vote isn't about what you believe is the truth.

Justin Amsah was the only one to go against the Republicans and now hes no longer one.

I'd rather have seen additional funding sent to NASA and allocate the rest of the Space Force credits elsewhere.

Everyone freaking out about this Iran stuff is just another example of the MSM declaring victory on your minds. 48 hours from now it’ll be a non story and football will be on.

I know it’s hard for you but try responding without using hypotheticals for once, it’s not that hard to live in reality.

I know it's hard for Republicans to not be flagrant hypocrites 101% of the time, but try responding in good faith for once.

I'm less concerned about the Iranian guy getting wacked than I am about troops being redeployed to Iraq. That's the dumbest thing about all this.

Trump threatened civilian sites, so that's neat.

That was the other point of Republican hypocrisy I was going to raise, but I figured it would fly over certain peoples' heads.

EDIT: Oh and apparently Soleimani was on his way to a meeting with the Iraqi PM at the request of Trump, so we legitimately used Iraq as a patsy to assassinate a foreign politician.

Meanwhile Iran has said they are only looking to target the Army. They have no issue with US citizens, only Trump.

We really are the baddies now.

Freedom and personal responsibility are inseparable. The more personal responsibility you are willing to undertake in life, the more freedom you will enjoy. The less personal responsibility you are willing to undertake, the less freedom you will enjoy.

The reason human beings still do not live in any kind of free society is because humanity is not yet willing to embrace true freedom. The mere thought of it terrifies most people; just ask the average person whether or not he thinks drugs should be legalised, and gauge their reaction. See, it's much easier to delegate personal responsibility to politicians and governments, that way, there's always someone else to blame when things go wrong. The politicians and governments can decide how much money we can earn, what substances we can and can not ingest, and where we ought to travel, and with whom.

The reason our freedom is continually being eroded is because personal responsibility is becoming an increasingly alien concept to an ever increasing number of human beings. There's always someone else to blame: The rich, the Tories, the socialists, the conservatives, the controlling boss at work, the nagging wife, whatever. Rarely is the individual at fault for his mistakes and mishaps, his poor life decisions and fuck-ups. Nah, it's always someone else's fault. Everyone is merely a victim of circumstance, powerless to create any real change in their lives and the world around them.

Better to trust the government with our freedoms, they know what's best.

If you agree that it is inherently wrong to initiate violence against peaceful people, that you own yourself and that all human interaction ought to be consensual, congratulations, you are an anarchist.

Nope, despite the government's best efforts to convince the public otherwise, the word anarchy does NOT mean chaos or disorder. It simply means that you own yourself and that "no man has received from nature the right to rule his fellow men."

Welcome to the team!
