  1. You're right. Many straight people love and enjoy Madonna. I assumed since you were here, and male and from the USA, you were gay. That is a stupid assumption since I personally know many straight male Madonna fans. That said, anybody who would vote for this person, or vote for a 3rd party, knowing the extreme threat he posed is infuriating and unforgivable. We learn from history or so I hope. I use to curse the German people. How could they let someone like Hitler rise to power? The signs were there. The atrocious personality and policies were there. The language used was there. Yet, it happened to a sophisticated country. Now, I totally get it. I apologize to to the German people for ever feeling this way because it is happening here now. I can see how the German people, or the dumb ones, were suckered. Just like here. The parallels are astounding. That said, you come to a message board full of LGBT members and admit to voting 3rd party with almost a giggle about it. It pisses me off! I fought for my rights. I don't take them for granted so it pisses me off when someone freely admits to voting for a 3rd party when a perfectly good alternative is present. I do not respect conservatives. They have shown throughout history to not have the interest of anybody but their own.
  2. I love you, Jazzy. I understand your POV. I just think voting for a candidate that makes you feel warm and fuzzy results with you, at the end of the day, accepting a coalition that ends up being exactly like the Dems and Repubs. And so many want to equate them as being equally as bad when the Republicans are just about completely corrupt and have sold out the USA it is not fair to distinguish between them. One is a normal party. The other is a wholly corrupt sell out. I am fucking PISSED beyond belief this has happened to my country.
  3. Yes, if you supported a 3rd party knowing in the USA it is meaningless and you have a dozen posts, I have suspicions. Any person who is gay who would even dare put their rights on the line for Gary Johnson, a way out there nutjob, I have to question your motives. I am sick of gays saying they are conservative and there is no other option. Bullshit! Gary Johnson had no fucking chance (and he would NOT be good for us) no matter the state you vote in. Did you do it for shits and giggles? Congrats! Hope you're happy! I am not old enough to remember how fucking awful it was for gays back in the day but I am old enough to remember how fucking bad enough it was. No fucking conservative or libertarian (what a JOKE) deserves my vote-ever. They actively would appoint people who would take my RIGHTS away. Even the Libertarian assholes who talk a great game but who are frauds. They are closeted conservatives. I have my degree in political science and worked on numerous campaigns and was a congressional intern. I know the game.
  4. Thank you! That last part sounds so much like right wing talking points. It sounds so left wing because the GOP has pushed our narrative so far right. If you look at FDR, he did so many "radical left policies" that are extremely popular and actually work today as well as then. Far left did not fuck anything. The far right did and has pushed us so far right we think the center is conservative. It is not. Trump is popular with so many because he espouses fiscally liberal ideals while governing as a typical conservative (tax cuts for the rich, huge military spending) which never works. Fiscal liberalism as always moved the middle class forward. You have to remember her campaign was operating on internal polls. There was no reason to believe she lost those states. She was FUCKED, FUCKED hard by Comey. Then add in the Russians possilbly (they hacked over 30 states) several state votes as well as all the other I mentioned and she was against a perfect storm. YET she STILL won.
  5. Hold up: How would multiple parties help? They would need to build coalitions to govern and we would be right back where we are: either center-left or center-right. Exactly where we are with both parties though the GOP has drifted far, far right. Anyone supporting 3rd parties is frankly throwing your vote away for what? So you can feel you're "above it all?" Any person who is gay willing to risk their rights with right wing judges on the bench for a lifetime is.......well I better not say. Hillary was actually a very progressive, though pragmatic, leader. It is bullshit her campaign was as flawed as some think in hindsight. She was and is one of the strongest candidates we have ever run though she was 4 years too late in 2016. Still, she did extraordinary against all the odds stacked against her. Trump beat out 16 of the GOP's best and brightest EASILY. She had everything against her- the media, the FBI, Comey, the Russians, the Saudis, all the GOP dark money, all the conservative billionaires, Bernie never fully and enthusiastically endorsing her, years and years of smears and lies YET she won almost 4 million more votes than he did. He "won" with over 77,000 spread out over 3 states. And it was a change election. Despite all of this, she won. Bernie would have won? TF he would have. It would have been a landslide in Trump's favor. Bernie has a lot of dirt no one has used on him. I am very liberal but he scares too many people. Now we are in the biggest shit show this country has ever seen in a hundred and something years. Yet here we are with a TV clown as president because of course that is where things were headed. People want to be entertained with twists and shocks instead of someone who knows what they are doing and was highly qualified. It is one humiliation after another and still a good 40% of this country is just fine with it all. The US is an oligarchy and they convince the poor and middle class to carry their water. Shameful. 10% of the people have 90% of the wealth. That isn't sustainable. 90% of us are fighting over 10% of the pie while they pillage us for more. And we grovel at their feet! And no, don't start with the corporate Dem bullshit. That is a complete right wing talking point. The right wing screams "BOTH SIDES ARE JUST AS BAD" because they can't defend anything they've done. People who use that argument are either out conservatives or closeted ones. Conservatives the world over are fucking the people and planet. When the population starts catching on, they create a crisis and scream about migrants and racism and religion and guns. Conservatives haven't done shit for mankind.
  6. Blaming both sides means no one actually gets the blame. They are not equally to blame. But if you want to blame both sides, you let the side who does the vast amount of damage off the hook. Blaming both sides is truly a right wing talking point here in the USA. Any time they are losing an argument they say this. That way, they will never be held accountable for the messes they have made and are responsible for 90% of the time.
  7. I disagree. Blaming both sides is what conservatives have lived on. It is their #1 talking point. It is how they survive. Dems have raised taxes on the rich every time they have had presidency (twice) over the last 30 years. They are the only party to have put any type of constraints on banks, huge companies. They are the only party who has installed or actively enforced regulation. Yet, big business and most of the uber wealthy donate to the GOP disproportionately. I was a Congressional intern so I know how it all works. Both sides are not equally to blame. It is nowhere near 50/50. If you had total Democrat control from 1980 to now, we would not be anywhere near an Oligarchy. Sadly, the Dems need big money to be able to compete but they don't do anything close to what the GOP does for big business. One party is the problem 99-1 while the other is 30-70. Democrats have the deck stacked against them with big money, Fox Spews, other conservative media. and so many in rural areas who would benefit so much from liberal economics but who are so socially conservative (usually abortion) they will not vote for a Democrat. Both sides are NOT the problem.
  8. The US, under the incompetent and disastrous leadership of Republicans and Trump, have put us on a path where it could be 2008 all over again but far worse. The Obama economy has turned out to have a very solid foundation to support long term growth and stability. Then comes the wrecking ball as president who gives us huge tax cuts for the rich during solid economic conditions and very low unemployment as well as increased spending. We are running a trillion dollar deficit now while experiencing great economic conditions, for the most part. That is fiscal insanity. Democrats have had to clean up after Republican presidents so many times. People wonder why more has not been done but when you are constantly cleaning up the mess left by Republicans what more can they do? Just when the mess is cleaned up, the Dems are voted out of Congress and the Republicans just obstruct the rest of the time. When 10% of our country has 90% of the wealth and gaining, this is not sustainable. 90% of us are fighting over 10% of the wealth. The US is an Oligarchy. The rich own and run everything. Conservatives love to say the media is liberal but the media is corporate owned 99%. Corporations may be socially more liberal but they are fiscally (TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!) conservative. The big winners under this president are China and Russia, who both want him to win because they have a useful idiot in the office. They feared Hillary as President. They stopped her at any and all costs.
  9. I'll never understand how someone could derive pleasure from killing anything much less creatures like giraffes, lions, elephants. I cannot wrap my brain around it. And I'm glad I can't. I don't want to know how someone could feel pleasure from something so cruel and unnecessary. There was a quote from some woman who killed an exotic animal and she said as she aimed at it, she smiled knowing the amount of liberals who would be upset. What kind of person thinks this way? A sociopath. I do think a sizable amount of these people are sociopaths.
  10. If that is the case, I have ridden the world of more demons than can fit in some small countries........
  11. Democrats did excellent in the election last week. It looks to be a 37-40 seat gain in a very gerrymandered House. The Senate saw Dems flip 2 Red seats to Blue, one of them in Arizona of all places. The vote was razor thin in Texas, Georgia and of course, Florida where the Dem Senator can still eek out a victory which would net the Repugs ONE seat in a brutal Senate map. Houston and Dallas counties went completely Democrat. It was a slaughter. Texas is edging Democrat. It was so close. If more people voted, like in a Presidential year, Beto may have won. The local races Democrats won were amazing and of course the Governorships flipped. California went so hard for the Dems they may have a 47-8 lead in House representation.
  12. That was bad. Almost as bad as the ad from the GOP Gov nominee where he literally says things like "I drive big trucks and say Merry Christmas and want the illegals out of this country. If that offends you, too bad." They are a parody of themselves. The Onion and SNL come to life.
  13. If you read the indictment of Maria Butina, Russian spy, it clearly says there are secret societies within the Republican Party aligned with Russia. She infiltrated the NRA and other conservative groups, had an affair with a "leading conservative" and has pics with so many prominent GOPers. This rot goes deep and shows conservatives here will sell out their country for power. The Russian collusion goes far beyond Pres Bone Spurs. Please read Seth Abramson's 65 point take on the Butina indictment. It is long but worth your time because this has the GOP shitting their pants. We are talking collusion from the top to the bottom.
  14. They interviewed some today and yup, they still support him! Nothing will change their minds so I wish people would stop talking to them. They don't use logic or basic comprehension skills. They're zombies.
  15. I read somewhere today that 32% of Australians support his job performance! What gives??????
