Democracy is fake, give me a break man if America was soo good then why are people committing suicide, suffering from depression, the US is ranked in the top 10 for unsafest countries in the world, people are mentally/physically exhausted working longer hours to pay for their bills and think about it what is money? How is money created by the western system better than another country's currency? It was just based off exploitation and the world systems theory theorized by American sociologist Emmanuel Wallerstein, how is that democracy? This is why people don't understand world history. I am not going to write an essay about it because people are ignorant online and don't want to hear the truth. They "pretend" and fill their stomachs with lies by both sides, the democrats and republicans. Now your going to think ohhh this guy is a comi! or this guy is anti-America. Actually I hate socialism, communism and capitalism. Ism-based ideologies have gotten us no where so straddle, another Great Depression and World War III is on the way... Mark my words. When that happens I will ask you about the democracy you love so much from the states. there's a storm coming and it's going to shock, instil fear and hurt people. But who am I to say anything, I study politics, and religion, read about the economy daily, have a degree and a masters, and go to law school. I must be an idiot so who cares about this post. When I predicted 2020 was going to be a bad year majority of people didn't believe me so I don't expect you to believe me either.
@The6ix You... are not wrong. America is terrible these days. It's completely corrupted here, America is the most greediest, the most racist, most capitalistic, the most violent country ever. It literally modern day Babylon. It just sucks and you're right... we work so much..80 hours or less and it's still not enough for a lot of people cause the cost of living is almost being turned into a luxury. Most people can't afford a apartment or house alone these days. You can try going to college for it, but you run the risk of accumulating a huge debt.. education and healthcare here isn't about the people but the money.
Voting hasn't meant much of anything. Just pick your favorite puppet on a string/scape goat on string to yell at while congress continues doing their shady work.
So you would definitely not vote for Joe Biden then?
@gotc147 How is Joe Biden racist?
@EnglishArtsteacher You obviously have never taken a look at his past. This is the guy who said "I don't want my kids growing up in a racial jungle".

Ooo I love this analogy!!!
Problem is that voting is a self-fulfilling prophecy: If you the voter think that, you make it true by voting for the 2 already-abusive parties' candidates. Granted, voting for conscience doesn't always end with our desired candidate (s) the getting into power, but that's changing…though slowly. The 3rd-parties are now consistently getting more votes than before, and more 3rd-party candidates are winning (locally, as of yet) than before. Why not be part of the momentum? Overhauling the system is a long-term mission. If we don't take steps now, we will never make it tomorrow, guaranteed.
@N192K001 no it’s not a self fulfilling prophecy. i agree in part but really the 2 party system is the way it is because of the electoral college & the winner take all system we have in the US. If those two were abolished/reformed, then 3rd party candidates would be more viable
@Mishan97 Well, that and/or ranked-choice voting. Heard of the Represent. US movement?https://represent.us/They're pushing for massive electoral-reforms and have been amassing victories across the Union.https://represent.us/our-wins/Sure, they're small in some States, but many small wins add-up over time.
@N192K001 I think ranked choice voting would be a big step in the right direction. Thank you for sharing!
Two of your "priorities" are long-solved issues no longer in need of work.Your third, gun control, is the equivalent of wanting to have a wolf guard a herd of sheep.
@gotc147 Long solved from your perspective. When you become a long term homeless person or black then you can tell me what to value and prioritize. The third is literally not about creating or stopping gun control it's about me having the right to say that gun owners, responsible ones, are screwing themselves by associating with lunatics. If we can put you on a no-fly list for national security issues then you definitely don't deserve to be able to purchase a gun.
No, solved period, the perception that those issues are not resolved are the twisting, amplifying and deception of people in power manipulating the electorate to remain in power.It never ceases to amaze me how many people find the idea of the people having the power to enforce their will upon the ruling class to be "lunacy". We see it all over the world where the citizenry has been disarmed that rights get trampled, and you want more of that?As we say in America, there is no first amendment without the second.
@gotc147 Once again solved from your perspective. We can argue back and forth all day and night but the fact is De Jure racism was ended but it had its affects, and De Facto racism never officially ended in parts of American society. And it's funny that you think that. You argue the "ruling class" exist but you're positive that racial issues and the remnants of racism don't. Gun ownership increases not when the "ruling class" gets angry but when the lower members of society get fighting. You say the first can't exist without the second? I say the second is almost always used to hurt those who use the first and defend the first. Gun owners defend nothing but their own place in society, it's why a black man killed by a cop while in possession of a gun is always demonized.
There is not one business, not one school, not one government program, not one venue, that will allow white peope and not allow non-white people. There are no separate bathrooms or water fountains, classrooms or places to sit. Yes there are a few thousand jackasses scattered around who judge people on race, but those jackasses have no influence. In fact, the only noteworthy remnant of racism left in the United States are gun control laws.I can see that because unlike you, I understand that not everything is about race. The ruling class doesn't care about the race of whom it rules over, who is being ruled doesn't matter so long as the rulers have their power. There was a point in time when race played a factor, that time has passed.I have no idea what you mean by "lower members of society", there hasn't been any incident of gun owners marching down the streets shooting anybody who opposes them, no gun owners conducting any kind of invasion and no gun owners shooting anybody who speaks against them.If you truly believe that about the 2nd amendment, then, coupled with the other ridiculous things you've said, it's clear you and I do not exist in the same reality. I have no clue where you're from but it's not the United States.
Yeah but all politicians, no matter the party, are all equally corrupt
@kibbenkat corruption is never equal though, that's what makes ot corruption
@kibbenkat true. It's just lesser of the two evils.
I understood that reference 😁
In this particular election, one candidate could literally kill our entire country though. If one main choice is a turd sandwich, then the other main choice is an atomic bomb.
Safe distance is best 🤣
And which will better the country. So Trump is out.
as is what the south (republicucks) love
that's not an answer, that's unhinged
Not unhinged. I don't think a psychopath should be ANYWHERE NEAR the nuclear football! 🤔
its unhinged to suggest he is a psychopath
Your a moron for thinking that anyone can be worse than Trump. Do us all a favour and don't vote.
@Heiniken Have fun paying for the Green new deal then. Have fun defending yourself without a gun.
Fortunately I don't think your old enough to vote!
@Heiniken I’m 18 dumbass
You are too young to vote in my country. Another reason why America is becoming a laughing stock, the young generation actually thinks Trump is making America Great Again!Have fun serving fries for the rest of your life.
@Heiniken have fun being a dumbass internet troll for the rest of your life
its always the non americans who hate trump... probably because he is withdrawing their free military protection
@007kingifrit yeah. Sounds about right. Also because their media teaches them to hate the guy, just like our own.
