  1. I agree with you re politicians, specifically Trump, reinforcing political worship. But I'll disagree with you on the Newsweek thing as it is completely relevant to the topic of politician worship by citizens and the media.
  2. Don't get me wrong, I agree with you re Trump being a nutter who loves and encourages that garbage. My point was more along the lines that anyone who regards an elected politician as anything more than a public servant, who works for us the public, is messed up. Re the Newsweek editor, it was an interview with Chris Matthews where Evan Thomas made the following comment: "Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama's had, really, a different task We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he, he has a very different job from ... Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is - we are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something, I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above above the world, he's sort of God." Mind you, this is the editor from the same magazine that published this cover:
  3. Speaking for myself, I want to keep the electoral college point system as it balances power between densely and sparsely populated states.. That said, I also want the points to go to the popular vote winner of each state. I fear that in today's political climate, there are too many things that can go wrong, including corruption, by allowing each electoral voter to do whatever they please. I think there would be room and 2/3 consensus to amend the constitution for making the popular vote of each state carry all the points. Tyrants could still arise even under the current system. I also believe a better way to prevent tyranny is a robust system of checks and balances that makes it very difficult to pass or remove laws and separation of powers between equal branches of government. But this is just my opinion.
  4. Did you get one of these set up in your house yet Convert?
  5. Idolization and worship of politicians is mind baffling strange but it’s nothing new. It wasn’t that long ago Newsweek’s editor claimed that Obama was a god. Whether it be this Wayne Allyn Root nutter or anyone else, placing a scumbag politician at the level of a king or a god is sick and demented. And @retrofade is right by comparing that sort of shit to cultism.
  6. This bigoted post is in extremely poor taste and shouldn’t be allowed on this board.
  7. At least I’ll be remembered for being the one who helped get things from the top shelf.
  8. Bullshit. I’m a hardcore partisan liberal.
  9. Please leave us liberals out of this. Thanks!
  10. The gottdamn religious zealots in Idaho need to grow the +++++ up when it comes to this.
  11. Yes. As you've positioned yourself to be the unmatched subject matter expert on history, constitutional law, neurobiology, cancer research, robotics, global economy, agriculture, social science, climate change, women, and now nuclear energy, we expect you to have a fully formed technological plan to create green infrastructure. Thanks! *Edit: I forgot to add “accounting” to your extensive expertise list.
  12. Authoritarianism has taken root in both major parties. Anyone who thought Trump might be some champion of privacy and individual rights was delusional.
  13. It sucks that we’ve gotten to this point as a society where children have to live in fear of the POTUS. I’m afraid we’ve only experienced the beginning of what is to come.
