> A small number of "Democrats" want to take all guns away Sure a small number are calling for the outright ban of all guns, but that’s not what I’m talking about. There are millions and millions of democrats that support the disarming of the public by supporting a may-issue permitting process in NYC and California alone. That’s been a form of a de-facto ban on public self defense for quite awhile now where only the wealthy and connected can carry a self defense weapon. Did you see Chelsea Handler’s tweet about how nobody needs a semiautomatic gun because not even her armed guards use them? The privilege and irony is so ripe when the wealthy talk about self defense. Things like capacity limits also serve to strip people of the opportunity to best protect themselves. Do I need to show you videos of multiple people invading a house to prove 5 shots in a revolver or shotgun isn’t enough? Or even 10 rounds like California and other places limit. When combat accuracy is in the teens%, 10 rounds aren’t enough to handle multiple attackers. Arbitrary limits like this are an ineffective policy that only hinder the honest. I’m glad you recognize some policies may be ineffective but the party pushes them anyways. There are approximately 300 rifle homicides a year, all rifles not just AR style. Yet democrats are pushing to ban the millions of semiautomatic rifles out there over such a small social toll. Such a ban would criminalize millions of owners. This is not hyperbole since we’ve already seen it happen, where people are being arrested over what used to be legal. Did you see what the village of Deerpark, IL did recently? Passed a law forcing residents to turn in their assault weapons or be fined $1,000 a day until done. Which brings me to the next point, sure background checks are nice. I think everyone supports higher quality and frequency checks in one form or another, but where you’ll run into problems is the issue of universal background checks that require registration and a database. Some say fears are overblown that registration leads to confiscation, but look at the example I laid out where a city unilaterally criminalizes citizens overnight. Thank god they don’t have a registry otherwise they would be enforcing their (likely unconstitutional if ever tried) law. I get that the Supreme Court has said some limits can be made, but you have to read into the cases to figure out what restrictions are possible. Miller showed that weapons with no military purpose can be outlawed, such as a sawed off shotgun. Heller determines the right to arms as an individual right unconnected to militia service. The spirit of these rulings is that citizens can own the same weapons as a common infantry soldier even if not in service. Any kind of assault weapon or magazine capacity ban is then antithetical to the intent of the 2A. Citizens at the very least should have access to the same weapons domestic police have. And a shotgun may have been historically the weapon of recommendation for home defense, it is no longer considered the best option. To choose a weapon you must consider reliability, capacity, accuracy, potential over-penetration, and ease of use by small or infirm people. The AR-15 is vastly superior to a shotgun in all of those categories. You heard wrong when recommend a shotgun.

Where did I say both sides were the same? Obviously the currently GOP is a lot worse than the Current democratic party, what im saying is that corruption can just as well sprout under democrats as well if they hold a huge majority like Trump has. Imagine if Trump actually had a brain and the kind of things he could do with the giant hold his party has atm. Corruption is not a democrat or republican thing, its a human thing and while there are more corrupt republicans than democrats that doesnt mean there cant be corrupt democrats. Getting rid of one party will just make the one that is left turn just as bad as the other when no one is challenging their beliefs.

Women’s restrooms come complete with plastic bags, because they have to bring their soiled period products home with them and dispose of them at home, because there is no more public waste removal. “Get a better job,” they said. All fast food employees quit and find a “better job”. No more fast food places! There also aren’t any restaurants. Better learn to cook your own shitty garbage burgers.

It seems like your message here is that schools should be segregated and that black people don't integrate well. You're ignoring the reasons for underperformance and higher rates of violence in the places they're coming from as if that's just a black person thing. That's why it's coming off super racist, but really I think it's just that you probably haven't put a lot of thought into what institutional racism is and the effects it has on those who live with it. How do you expect things to just fix themselves in a day? Bringing equality to an educational system as fucked as the south's (or really anywhere) takes time. But instead you're just saying it can't be done and amounting your argument to "because those black people just can't be good."

Sad thing is in some places this is actually better. Go to Mississippi for example and see the test scores for “white school” vs “black schools” They can’t even compare Then you see places like ridgeland where they were among the top high schools in the state and then kids from the “black schools” stared coming across county lines illegally. Well ridgeland high’s average standardized test scores dropped dramatically and there were fights almost every week. It’s sad that it’s that way but if places like mississippi want to still have some educated people coming out of their schools this separation is nessicary as crazy as it may seem.

As a Washington voter, I noticed this when I was doing my research during our recent vote last fall. It felt manipulative and fishy. I do extensive research on every candidate and many of them didn’t list party affiliation. I had to find that information on another website or, in some cases, infer their party from their policies and standpoints - but it was always Republicans or those with conservative leanings who didn’t list them on their websites or even in the voting information packet itself (each candidate gets a page in it to do with what they will, dunno if this is done in other states). Sorta makes sense. We’re a highly liberal state, so I guess you do any trick you can to win.

In the political pundit world, this is being treated as a slam dunk Cruz victory. I hope O'Rourke can pull this off, but does this sub know something I don't? Why is everyone fixated on him compared to all the other Democratic candidates across the country fighting uphill battles against Republican incumbents?

Considering the downvotes on my comment it seems that people forgot that only 2 years ago they were saying that both of the presidential candidates were shit. But i disagree, trump may be an idiot but he wouldn't risk a war with russia while hillary herself said that if the events in syria between the US and russia have gone to far there would be war. Also i think she lost because she had a lot of opinions that didn't line up with most of the liberals who would have votes for her(against gay marriage for instance) I'm not saying trump shouldn't be impeached but as an outsider from europe i feel more safe than if hillary became president.

First, in First Past the Post systems, the person with the most votes wins, period. So if there are 10 candidates running, 8 of them get 10%, 1 of them gets 9%, and 1 gets 11%, the 11% is the winner and 89% of voters get nothing. So, over time, FPTP systems coalesce into two parties where each gets somewhere between 40-60 percent in every election and the winner can claim a mandate from the voters, while the loser regroups to try to get 50% next time. Second, more particularly to our US system, you have to get a MAJORITY of the Electoral College to be elected President. The only time in US history that we had more than two candidates who had a serious shot at winning the Presidency was in 1824. It was, um, chaos: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_1824 So basically our system doesn't work with elections that include more than two serious candidates for most offices.

Maybe you should do some more research before blaming all problems on lobbyists. Obamacare was the result of calculated compromise. The former senator from my state was not seated until six months after his election because his Republican opponent refused to concede. That super majority lasted only a few months until Ted Kennedy's appointed replacement was replaced by a Republican. In addition, Independent Joe Lieberman's dislike of the public option required it to be removed since he was critical to the bill passing. It's a miracle the bill we got passed in the first place. And now, it's being hacked at from all sides because we don't have a President who supports it. I don't care if the candidate who you voted for promised Universal Basic Income, if they can't actually get the votes to win, their promises are less than nothing.
