    McConnell and Trump seem pretty serious about rigging the court in the face of the election. On the one hand, it's comforting to know they have no faith in their ability to legitimately win the votes of the American people. It says something about the majority of the country not being total idiots or scumbags. On the other, it's horrifying and disgusting.

    To make matters worse, it's likely that the new Court will hear cases pertaining to mail-in voting before the election that have the potential to throw out any ballots not arriving before November 4th, as well as potentially upending the rights of State legislatures to determine voting procedures and State Supreme Courts to interpret them. Which, let's be honest, is going to be seen as a gateway excuse for legal challenges to the authority of States to make and interpret their own laws if it happens.

    This is an uphill task right? I mean, people will get angry and riled up if this happens.

    With the new member in, the US Supreme Court is set to look at the following:
    -The affordable healthcare act
    -Trump’s 2 major policies on immigration
    -If religious groups need to comply with policies in regards barring discrimination to same-sex couples

    @rxrx: Yes? I'm just saying it opens up legal challenges to virtually any State law or Court decision by undermining their existing Constitutional authority to do so.

    Conservatives are fine with this so long as they're in power. However, the Republican leadership is going to love this, same as they love the idea of States going bankrupt; since they've so thoroughly rigged the Courts through the decades, this has the potential to let corporations directly determine political policy through lawsuits.

    Also, one Trump term? Universal Healthcare likely won't happen for a decade or more now, with the ACA looking near death.

    Conservatives over here in the UK voted to let kids starve over the winter holidays so I wouldn’t be surprised if the ones in the US do everything they can to make healthcare less affordable for those in need.

    Welp, as Twelve said, the only silver lining here is that Trump and his cronies fear the tide rising against them so much they want to have all guns blazing to smite it with the pen of the SC.

    Well, yeah. I mean, this is the party that was having ICE forcibly sterilize refugee women at the border. The only ways you can really see this scenario as good are if you agree with them or you want another civil war over here.

    The outlook seems bleak. Universal Healthcare is beneficial no matter how you look at it. The problem is with implementation and not the idea itself.

    Among the 2, who accepted the least amount of money from China? And how did that money affect the actions of either candidate?

    This is honestly just incentive for him to try to bullshit a way to overstay his term limits. He's already made it clear he gives no fucks about the Constitution and its amendments beyond their utility as rhetorical ammunition.

    He knows what's waiting for him. He knows he can pardon himself. But he also knows he's pissed off too many people for that pardon to be safe.

    But compared to King Sager: https://chinadigitaltimes.net/2018/0...ek-king-sager/ and his obsession with Loose Clothing? https://chinadigitaltimes.net/2016/0...hing-slip-g20/ I'd like to think that Mango Mussolini is marginally better. Though, that's a terribly low bar to cross.

    Let's just agree that the leadership of some of the most powerful nations on Earth should not be in those positions. Nor should the political machinery that put them there be a thing.

    While the US "machinery" may be rusty, the Chinese machinery was bad from its onset. Now, whether you want to argue if that "onset" was during the rise of communism or since the dawn of time, both would be reasonable.

    Actually, one thing Trump is proving is that ours was also bad from the outset. It's only operated as well as it has (and that's not all that well looking back on it) because those involved in its processes have been willing to not push it and pick apart its flaws. It literally runs on hope, dreams, decorum, momentum, and something resembling integrity.

    One of the worms crawling on this site once called me a "little pink". This is what happens to actual "little pinks" in actual Red dictatorships:

    As an American, I don't need to worry about this because from what I know, no sites are banned, at least not in this way. Better dead than Red. Now, as for private media companies banning certain bits of news to influence the election in one way or another, well, that's another story.

    See. Screw-up implies it being an unintentional mistake, rather than deliberate censorship. Russian boogeymen. LOL. I'd prefer to keep my eyes open for the 50 cent wolf warriors.

    Really? Like China is bad, but at least their not currently trying to annex a neighbouting nation (Unless that India thing has really blown up and I haven't heard about it), poisoning critics outside of its borders, or actively sabotaging the US elections.

    Sure China is fucking with the US elections, but they're only doing so in the same way most corporations are, so it's kind of your own fault giving them the means to do so.
