  1. Can't wait for Republicans to exercise the constitutional right of the chamber to determine the qualifications of it's members under article 1 section 5 and refuse to administer the oath of office to democrats.
  2. I thought you might like this story from The Washington Post. Poll: Majority of Americans say they endorse opening of House impeachment inquiry of Trump https://wapo.st/2LXfDrf Maybe we shouldn't: A) read the hill B) listen to Republicans about an unpublished poll they had commissioned C) A&B
  3. Here's another case where Democrats have leverage but will probably refuse to use it It's one thing to keep the ship afloat in a time of crisis, but if the other side isn't working in good faith, there's no reason to oblige, especially if it requires doing something that a *lot* of your base opposes.
  4. I'm sure the radio silence from democratic leadership is helping poll numbers *checks calendar* 13 months before the next election.
  5. The transition would be rough on older folks, like those who don't have a birth certificate, and it would be used to harass Hispanic people. Papers, please. It's probably the best solution though. Pair it up with M4A like in Canada and their health cards.
  6. Useless without know the full context of the poll, but as I said in the other thread, the fault lies with the democratic establishment who are caught flat footed where the Trump folks are already running anti impeachment ads on football games and social media
  7. If true, the fault lies with the democratic establishment. Trump's allies were ready, and there been crickets since the opening of formal impeachment inquires
  8. When Wisconsin under Scott Walker instituted voter ID laws, they also closed down DMV locations near dense concentrations of black citizens, and cut back hours of when the DMVs are open. There was a republican strategist who worked with the NC legislature to find out what IDs African Americans and college students are most likely to use and those they don't have and excluded the ones the are most likely to use, and included those that they are least likely to have. That's the racist shit about it. It's not a photo ID per se that is opposed. It's the ID plus limiting the types of ID, limiting when/where you can get ID, eliminating and moving polling locations at the last minute, everything, all of the above, that is used to depress turnout specifically and targetly among the African American community.
  9. Do you have to register? I know in North Dakota you don't even have to do that
  10. And all this is great if the basic tenents of your country aren't based upon white supremacy/black subjugation
  11. Their system is how I voted in Ohio in 2008. I just needed a utility bill in my name of my current address.
  12. I thought Canadian cared about policy not silly things like performative debates
  13. They want us pulled into a war in the middle East, thinking it is the start of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ, I'm not joking
  14. Hey, if we're "retreating from the world stage" and disentangling ourselves from our allies, at least it's getting done and over with. It'll make slashing the military budget to ribbons all the easier. I give the Baltic states about a decade.
  15. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/10/06/opinion/income-tax-rate-wealthy.html But if you raised their taxes they'll just find ways around it!!!!! Soak the rich
