  1. How did Hong Kongers miss Trump’s obvious totalitarianism, or did they see it too and just prefer that brand as opposed to the CCP’s?
  2. Under the US Constitution , religious Christians are more of a threat to personal liberty than trans rights activists? After four years of evangelical support Trump didn't overturn Roe v Wade, yet on day one ,literally, Biden effectively ended the idea of women's sport.
  3. Odder still for a left liberal , he believes there is merit to discuss the irregularities in the election and after three years of not supporting Trump he voted for him this year, being from the left he pulls for the underdog and given that Biden was being pushed by the “state run media” , Trump was the obvious choice. Man is he duped !
  4. Odd that I mentioned he stated his views, without describing them, but you describe it as an attack.
  5. Having a hard time reconciling 'internal nature' and 'sinking to the bottom of a lake' , given its internal motive power , having a lake form over it feels better .
  6. I just watched James Lindsay on the Glenn Loury show and about mid-way through you get his take on the post-modern influences of CRT.
  7. More like making a choosing between existents than entertaining the arbitrary.
  8. ET So since the fall of the USSR power mongers no longer seek to subjugate based on spreading Marxist ideologies? And a larger more powerful threat to civilization comes from a snarky retort by a guy who killed his brother because G_d showed favor on his brother and not him , meaning he wasn't going to be able to marry his sister with the biggest boobs ?
  9. So the means justify the ends ? Stephen?
  10. I've seen interviews from the early 90's or even late 80's of Trump saying western leaders should engage North Korea in dialogue. Jong Un just happened to be the instantiation of the Kim dynastic dictatorship on his watch.
  11. I think a proper system is always an aspiration, but a human system of any kind will be fallible. A nation of laws and not Men is an abstract aspiration, as men author and apply laws.
  12. A benevolent distinction could point to nationalism as expressed in collective participation in organizing and maintaining a civil society based on the recognition and protection of individual rights , as opposed to an organizational scheme based on the abrogation of rights imposed by force. I see the populist push for an American Nationalsim as recognizing the current collective desire to seek the former as opposed to and as reaction to a perceived instantiation of the latter.
  13. The 23 rd amendment allows the citizens of DC to cast ballots for the Pres and VP.
  14. Oh crap, I keep getting duped. Good fact checking, thanks. Senator Paul pledged to spend the next two years going to the states to demand they change their election laws and procedures to ensure free and fair elections. Sounds like a waste of time and effort, we just had the fairest and freest election ever, all our institutions say so.
  15. Fire seems to be the favored tool of the hard left/antifa/anarchist/black bloc types , when you see buildings ablaze the professionals are in town. Portland on weeknights and those in the Capitol on the 6th are the larping brigades. Within hours of becoming president Biden legitimately outlawed acknowledging biological sex identity cementing a path to ensuring a re-civilized society. Feel the unity!
  16. I think I saw an article stating that 81 cases/suits were filed in regards to the election , 30 of which are still active. I assume some venues saw multiple cases but I don’t think there are cases before a court in every state, perhaps ? My comment about OJ was in response to being made to plead fealty to the inherently and incorruptible integrity of our institutions. Or at the very least agreeing with the idea that using the term legitimate in this context means the same thing.
  17. It is a fact that Biden is the current president of the United States.
  18. Again I bring up PA, and previously the WI supreme court rulings, to introduce the idea that questioning the elections results may not be a simple as shouting "No MASSIVE fraud". Why wouldn't a Republican governor conspire to help bring about the defeat of Republican President? His own judgement would automatically be overridden by 'party' affiliation ? If I am alleging corruption party affiliation and partisan political appearances aren't necessarily the heaviest weighted elements in gaining/wielding/keeping power. Isn't DC under one party rule currently ?
  19. What if similar conditions or situations exist in other states, with regard to those states' results in the general election , could they also be considered 'massive' as it would pertain individually to those states? My point is not to prosecute every allegation here, just exploring what 'massive' means in the context of the general election and the 50 entities in which it transpired.
  20. Have you read the Pa House Resolution 8? In it the Pa St Legislature resolves to void the slate of electors due to various actions they deem to be unconstitutional and makes the election results illegitimate . If what is alleged to have taken place in Pa in the general election is accurate and those actions caused the results to be in question, would it be consistent to claim 'massive' fraud ( if the unconstitutional actions can be shown to have been implemented knowingly in violation of state law) or 'massive' malfeasance or incompetence if those actions were deemed to have occurred absent of
  21. The allegation stands , the requests are ways to avoid some level of fraud in the future. How did calling out fraud get that woman killed ? I think she got killed by believing that fraud occurred and deciding to trespass because of her belief. Do you mean she was killed because fraud didn’t occur?
  22. How about just in person voting , with ID coupled with requested absentee non-curable ballots for situations that would rationally justify their use , even during pandemics.
  23. My skepticism of the integrity of the people who run our ‘systems’ was not born around the 2020 general election. If there is anyway to see the rioting and unrest of the summer as being predicated on some real or supposed harm that flowed from the ‘systems’ then they certainly preceded Trump.
