  • A photo ID to vote is very important and I think it should be easier and more accessible for every legal citizen to get said ID! The idea that ID's prevent people of color from being able to vote sounds like a completely false narrative in order to get what politicians want. Power. New York has even more strict voting laws than Atlanta and I haven't heard any problems there?

I don't understand how you can say all of these things about Trump (whether he deserves it or not) and then coddle Biden with the worst shot being that you called him a puss not that he immediately bombed Syria and lied to the Keystone Unions. It disappoints me how tunnel-visioned everyone is...even on a so-called journalism show...

  • If I was American, I would not vote for a celebrity that has never held public office. But then again, I'm not obsessed with celebrities.

    Chris AlbertChris AlbertUukausi sitten
    • I normally agree. But most celebrities are famous with occupations like actors or singers. While it's true Defranco is "just a youtuber", about half of his content is discussing politics. He is a political pundit who I've grown confidence wouldn't be corrupted by the system. He does work to cut past the PC bullshit and understand issues from both sides. He takes common sense positions on major national and global issue. For instance, he speaks out against China's actions in Xinjiang and Taiwan. I think one of the big problems in American politics is we have so many fake people. Trump, a celebrity, was fake as anyone. Too bad looks like it will end up a few thousand likes short of the goal line.

Let me guess, you're on board with these establishment swamp creatures in the government as well right? Wake up, our government is corrupt and trying to play up to the progressives and they support the riots of this past summer. Harris was raising funds to get violent criminals out of jail who burned buildings, killed people and injured several police officers across this great country. But you think Trump was bad, you are a fucking moron.

  • Vernon Dahmer was a black civil rights leader in the mid-1960s, when Mississippians were still required to pay a poll tax in order to register to vote. This prevented many low income families from voting, and because In January 1966, the successful farmer and businessman publicly offered to pay that tax for black people who couldn't afford it. The Klu Klux Klan firebombed his house, shooting anyone who tried to escape. His wife (still living, because this shit was recent) carried his children out the back window while he distracted the Klan by returning to the front door, where he was shot to death. Nobody has ever been charged with the crime. Republicans need to get creative, because the KKK stopped bombing US citizens for having the audacity to vote. NOBODY can convince me voter suppression laws are not racist, not a chance. Many of the people who carried out those crimes are still alive right now. They are allowed to vote.

  • btw name recognition being super important for winning a political office is much more true in the USA than other countries. You also badly neglected to point out that in the US being rich is almost a prerequisite to run for any office and greatly helps your chances of winning.

    Isa TailorIsa TailorUukausi sitten
  • If they NEED to limit the number of voters, it should be based on if the voter actually knows what they are voting on! By that, I mean that in order to register, they need to be able to answer the question of what is the stance of each canadadate in question. Seriously, we have to take a test to prove we know what we are doing before we can drive a car forward, why aren't we also forced to take a test before we drive the COUNTRY forward? All elections are decided mostly on name recognition rather than what their policies would be, and that's wrong. Deciding a nations future shouldn't be determined on "this candidate has a stronger social media presence" or "this guy is stupid and has funny hair". It should be about what policies they would push for! Most people who run don't get a shot because voters don't even bother doing their homework on all their options. Meaning the BETTER options THAT ARE OUR THERE are people that the voters didn't even know were there to begin with. That's why clowns become the front runners of EVERY election now adays. Because the internet LOVES to talk about stupidity, so stupidity becomes what gets your name out there and memorized by the masses. It goes from "This idiot [name] said" or "This idiot [name] wants" to just "this idiot [name]" to just "[name]", and thus, they are the name that everyone recognizes and then, because they are recognized, they are the ones that are taken seriously. This system is fuqed because it caters to fools, idiots, or people who don't try to get all the details, myself included, that's why I don't vote! Keep in mind: By forcing a test, it is not "voter suppression", anyone CAN still vote, they just need to put in the work first in order to get registered first. If you fail, it's because you didn't bother to study enough, go hope, study up, then come back and try again. Same thing we do with a driving exam. Peoples livelihoods are being effected here. Be it deciding a nations future or just driving a car; it shouldn't be left up to foolishness or those who choose to be oblivious. Not when it effects other people. ALOT of other people. >.>

  • Please just leave the children's classics alone. This is getting out of hand. I am all for racial diversity and we have been for so many years. But at this point we will have nothing left to read, watch on tv, or music to listen to. It was actually the first book I ever read on my own and the rhyming taught me how to read. If parents don't like the books, don't buy them for your children, but to stop printing them. Ummm.... Why are we not putting any responsibility on parents anymore as far as what their children consume?

  • Despite respecting the feelings of trans people and the horrifying identity crisis experienced amongst those who feel like the opposite sex of the body they were born in...wanting to be the opposite sex will never make you the opposite sex. Female/male is not synonymous with woman/man, but it is commonly used interchangeably. Trans women are males with an outward feminine expression; they present themselves as female, but they are not. No matter how they dress, what surgeries they have, what hormones they take, or how convincing they look, people who are born biological males can never be women. The word "trans" denotes the difference. Women's History Month is for celebrating the achievements of females, not males who present themselves in a feminine manner. You cannot just lump yourselves, your struggles and triumphs in with women's. You have a whole other set of achievements and issues which is why it makes sense to have your own month instead of trying to force your way into yet again another women's space that you don't belong in. You're forcing your way into women's sports and unsurprisingly dominating, you're forcing your way into women's and girl's bathrooms and locker rooms and inappropriately serving as Sleep Away camp leaders, and you're trying to include yourselves on feminine product packaging. This overly aggressive, dominating behavior is characteristic of who...?MEN. Not women. You're trying so hard to prove points but really only proving that your actions align with your biological male behavior.

  • Phil usually I agree with everything you say. Sex work is real work and it should be defended and women protected... but "your moms not a whore" concerned me. It's not that we should shame children's mothers for being sex workers but we should absolutely fight for them to do more safe, reliable, and mentally healthy work. There are many studies that show how sex work negatively impacts people, ESPECIALLY people with children. We should not shame women but we need to stop encouraging women to pursue this lifestyle. It is anything but safe, happy and carefree.
