    Nice scare quotes around climate change. It's amusing that you can't help exposing your hand on a regular basis.

    there is something to understand how US vote works? because between gerrymannering, difficult registration, cut of vote boxes, fake vote boxes and whatever, from an european (or at least italian) viewpoint this seems completely lunatic and a clownfiesta

    All you need to know is that the party currently in power is scared shitless of people actually voting.

    So they're doing everything the can to suppress the population.

    Here's a hate read for today. A bunch of Libertarians that went to expensive private schools, tell you who they're voting for!

    How Will Reason Staffers Vote in 2020?

    Spoiler! Half of these should have been edited down to “I will be voting for this race’s only principled candidate, the SMELL OF MY OWN FARTS”
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    Cook Political Report

    Political report moving races in GA, Alaska, and TX, from "likely Republican" to "lean Republican." Another inch and it becomes a "toss up."

    It's the uncomfortable truth, but the truth nonetheless.

    The Democratic Party is not and definitely Biden is not going to bring any solutions to currently ongoing modern day issues, beyond removing Trump from office (if he wins the elections). It is going to be the continuation of the old status quo that saw people like Trump rising to power and liberalism lose it's support among the voter-base.

    Biden is de facto the choice of kicking the can down the road and hoping that someone else will pick it up another day.

    List of issues Biden is going to change or has a plan to solve:
    - Climate Change: No.
    - Police Brutality / Police Reform: No.
    - Worker Rights: No.
    - Healthcare: No.
    - Corona: Maybe, but probably ineffectively.
    - Wealth Inequality: No.
    - Corporatism and Cronyism: No.
    - Mental Health issues in the USA: No.
    - Drug usage: No.
    - Immigration: Maybe, if allowing more cheap labor into the country and more refugees in is the end goal.

    Your list is wrong.

    Not true, plenty Obama's reforms and policy improved on the majority of your list, Biden will do the same.

    Biden has also already stated more then once that he wants to Reform the Police.

    Yeah, and what happens under Republican control? All of your "uncomfortable truths" are pointless because the status quo right now is Republican governance with absolutely no care in the world for fossil fuel emissions. If anything they want to double down and expand drilling every where they can on the planet.

    You also act like Biden is the end all be all of Democratic politics when it's congress that passes the agenda. Your problem is that you hate the Democrats more than you hate a party that represents the worst aspects of capitalism and imperialism. All of your accelerationist bullshit just leads to four more years of kicking the can down the road. I don't care if Biden isn't perfect, Republicans have no business governing when their policies are that harmful to human existence. Your position, like the position of Chapo podcasters on twitter, is an unserious one.

    Nah, I hate them both just about equally (read: A lot). They're the root cause of the greatest issues in the world today, each in their own vile and twisted way.

    Only people who don't take part in this circus have the right to complain about the mess you guys make.

    No, people like you are... just like Carlin said... You have one of the largest fossil fuel lobbies in your damn back yard in Brussels, but you bitch about Biden?

    George Carlin said it best:
    His explanation on why he doesn’t discuss politics? Who do you think he is talking about? You want to talk about the idiot voter Carlin mentioned that does discuss politics, but doesn’t vote?

    FYI: Carlin would have voted just like Chumpski....

    The old "I hate both sides equally!" cliché. It's supposed to come off as rational and fair-minded but really it just comes off as painfully ignorant or just straight up hipsterism. It's hard to take your "hate both sides" equally line seriously when the majority of your posts are just whingeing about Democrats. I also don't think much of people who base their voting habits on comedy routines.

    Also get a load of this bullshit reasoning:

    Also you:

    Don't vote, here's Carlin telling you why you shouldn't vote. I'm also not an American while trying to influence others to not vote in a country I'm not a citizen of.
    And you wonder why me and other posters are so hostile to your nonsense.

    Actually, this is his comedy routine... down to being angel of riots:



    One should be able to understand that there is a problem in your rational, when you use a comedy skit that starts with “the reason I don’t discuss politics”... while discussing politics... the insults that follow, are about you.

    I love how since Chomsky told the cosplay leftists to fuck off their literal last bastion is a dead comedian that would have also told them to fuck off.

    “I hate both sides” = “My right to exist isn’t under threat every four years”.

    Well that’s the thing, Carlin called the Boomers out on their bullshit before it was popular to do so, and the Boomers were too stupid to realize he was talking about them.

    He made the argument that we can’t wait for environment to get better, while discouraging voting. It makes no sense...

    Same thing with flyover country Americans and the “Suckers” bit he did - they think he wasn’t talking about them.
