I like how Obama tried to nominate a Supreme Court justice before an election and Republicans were outraged. Now Trump is doing the same and the parties have the complete opposite stance. :lol:

Politics is just one big con. Lie to get people to vote for you then continue lying to convince them you’re actually doing something.

Yeah, it’s pretty bad there. I think the main issue is that it’s only a 2 party system. Here in Canada we have multiple parties that actually have a say in governance so it isn’t just conservatives against liberals. I think that helps keep things more balanced.

One against the other in the USA is getting more cutthroat every year and it seems inevitable that it will boil over unless the system is changed.

Oh absolutely :lol: :lol: Either side would do the same if they were in that position. It just so happens its the democrats looking dumb on this occasion.

I do love an unfounded conspiracy theory though. Democrats have been pushing the "they are gonna repeal roe v wade" conspiracy theory with 0 evidence for a good 4 years now. With Trump first, then Kavanaugh, now Comey Barrett :lol:

So really this portion of the clown show known as US politics has been very funny for me. They are even saying Barrett adopted two black kids so she could shield herself from criticism for her white supremacy views :lol:

Talk about scrapping the bottom of the barrel of logic.

I hate the 2 party system too. Its a dual party dictatorship.

Yeah, it’s such a shame that we as humans speak of integrity, honesty, hard work, and so many other virtues yet once you become a politician you abandon all of those. It doesn’t have to be that way though does it? The system needs a big time overhaul :shock:

I don’t align with either American political party as I usually base my political judgements on character but the choice isn’t even close if we are considering character here. Trump is a scam and his supporters all fell for it. He just keeps going back to the argument that he’s under audit (which is a lie) and that’s why he won’t release his taxes. The IRS has repeatedly said that being under audit doesn’t prevent him from releasing it. I’m sure Biden will bring this up tomorrow :lol:

Lesson to all - when your life is based on lies and scams you need to lie to cover up one lie and lie again to cover up that lie and it gets very messy. Things are not going to end well for Mr. Trump :|

It's true that both parties have taken opposite stances, but it's a bit disingenuous to compare Obama's attempt to nominate a justice 9 months before the election vs Trump doing it now only 6 weeks before the election.

in fact, there is nothing technically wrong with nominating the justice in an election year. Obama wasn't wrong to do so. But the republicans introduced the idea that it is not right to nominate a justice in election year and they blocked it. It only makes sense that the democrats complain about the republican change of stance with a much much much shorter period of time before the election.


IMO the republicans look much more hypocritical and worse than the dems do.
It also means that the republicans really feel like they are going to lose the election and that's why they want to get their justice in before Trump is booted out.

Question for you guys. Trump claims everything is fake news so why doesn’t he sue the NYT, CNN and Washington Post for libel every time they have “fake news”?

Is it because it’s not fake news and his supporters are too dumb to know that if it was fake that he would sue for libel?

Help me understand :lol:
