    That's easy, he panders to white supremacists. It's rather profitable.

    you can force people to vote but you can't force them to make an informed vote. if someone doesn't vote it should just be counted as a null vote that lets all sides know that they're not managing to convince these people that there's somebody worth voting for
    a lot of people are very jaded about politics these days, there's been far too many unfulfilled promises, revelations of corruption (not to mention getting away with it) and bigotry and none of the politicians seem to be considering what they can do to reassure people that their promises hold more value than all those previous ones. hell, a large part of the people who originally supported trump claimed to be doing so because he wasn't a politician (he's proved to be at least as corrupt and untrustworthy as them though) and they were 'protesting the system' or something

    I’ve pointed this out in a very similar argument about US. His fingers can only point in one direction.

    Because he is being treated by doctors, not politicians.

    If... god forbid, as I said many times, him dying would be the worst... but, if he or members of his team die. Do we get to remove a few numbers from those ‘socialist killed X’ memes? You know... since if he listened to the socialist, communist, crazy antifa, they wouldn’t be sick? Does that work that way or do they get added to the capitalism memes? I’m old, not sure on the process of having those memes updated...

    It was certain sorts of doctors who wrote BS to let him skip draft. Not to mention NK style propaganda of him having super genes that could have made him live to 200, and all that. Why isn't he receiving that sort of care, instead of the sort he has never supported?

    Republican Senator Ron Johnson has just tested positive for COVID (although unlike the others, he wasn't at Amy Coney Barrett's nomination last week).

    Maybe the GOP should take this as a sign from above that this abomination of a nomination shall not come to pass.

    This really stinks of an "end of history" viewpoint wherein democratic government is the natural state of things.

    No, hun, Greeks did not "fall into tyranny" - oligarchy and despotism were the norm insofar as government in Classical Greece, with "democracy" being a minority form of government and not particularly democratic at all considering the only people who were voting were propertied male citizens of age.

    Please stop butchering my people's history to fit your narrative.



    Fairly sure they did that because they were men of property looking out for their own interests which democratic government might threaten.

    Said interests primarily having to do with their ability to own other people as property and exploit them for profit. So no - the idea that democracy is this beast that must be guarded against is in fact bougie propaganda.
    Its not boogie properganda, its the foundation of the modern idea of republics, and as republics have lasted far longer than any true democracy has id say there onto something.

    The rights of the individual should always be protected from the will of the people and the malevolence of the state. other wise rights are nothing.

    Every heartwarming human interest story in America is like "he raised $20,000 to keep 200 orphans from being crushed in the orphan-crushing machine" and then never asks why an orphan-crushing machine exists or why you'd need to pay to prevent it from being used.

Somehow reminiscent of another nation right now.

    And while there is still some resentment against germans, it vastly depends on the country. The UK is not a good example for european feelings towards germany.

    And ... aren't you British? In that case i wouldn't really start with debts owed to humanity due to the past..
    The French, Belgians and Polish have similar feelings about Germany.

    I don't know where the idea of conservatives awarding power to nazis came from, I don't like conservatives but this was the make up of the german parliament when Hitler took power

    Which are in turn derived from Enlightenment values, the values of the 18th century bourgeoisie.

    The longest lasting polities have generally been highly bureaucratized empires, not republics.

    Fun fact, though, human administrative practices have been refined over time so saying "true democracies haven't lasted" is a non sequitur.

    The rights of the individual should always be protected from the will of the people and the malevolence of the state. other wise rights are nothing.
    K, but that isn't mutually exclusive with democratic government and the United States has never been about protecting individual rights unless forced.

    I don't doubt that, but still, for Hitler to become Fuhrer he needed 2/3rd. Now in my world 44% is less than 66% - where do they come from? The conservatives. At least open wikipedia and skim it.

    And sure, there is a right wing-authoritarian party in germany, but it's both quantitative and qualitative way less powerful than literally ANY OHTER EUROPEAN COUNTRY.

    Look at them: UKIP, FPÖ, FN, Lega Nord, PiS, VB - all of them have much more votes and are way more direct in their dogwhistling than the AfD. Does this make the AfD okay - for sure not, but germanys right wing party is the least of the right-wing problems in Europe right now.

    And to the perception: Yeah of course, everytime Germany pushes for more austerity the Nazi calls grow louder, but let's be honest, it only happens in these cases. The only country still holding on hard to their Germany hate is the UK. It's a bit bonkers tbh. When i went to school in the UK 25 years ago the kids were a bit suspicious of me, until they learned i'm austrian, not german - which yeah, is bonkers especially considering how my country treats its past contrary to germany. It's a bit like the hateboner for germans is deeply rooted in british nationalism and society.

    Maybe travel to another country...

    I'm sorry, but this whole discussion is seriously bonkers. No nation in the EU is more aware of their problematic heritage as is germany. Even flashing a national flag (as long as it isn't soccer) is seen as somewhat problematic - they're THAT aware of their history of nationalism. You should really check your own prejudices, and look at that's actually happening instead of regurgitating the same nationalistic UK bullshit that hasn't been reflected upon in the last 70 years.

    Trumps rate of tweets per day should be an indication of how severe his symptoms are.

    From normal amount meaning he is fine, to not tweeting for a day meaning "thoughts and prayers" time

    why are they giving him remdesivir?
    all they need to do is give him some hydroxichloriqueine
    which is 100% effective on the virus
    no need for anything else
