Mog: Earlier you and I had a scuffle about the relative importance of local government. I think you could say your point has been vindicated considering how while I and many others were so focused on the presidency control of the Senate slipped away. You better believe I am paying attention now.

Local government is definitely > than federal elections lol. Because if you (in general) are trying to organise around presidential candidacy, it's already too late.

Again...offline, in the real world. To tangible effect.

Especially since any critique of institutions is often already perceived as an attack.

It happens a lot in MSN. Maybe they don't actually tell men they need to die, but they perpetuate the wage gap myth or the 1 in 4 myth and... so on and so forth. They've basically planted their feet in the sand with the SJWs and people are sick of it.

I guess I should have specified. To tangible effect [on these men's lives and livelihoods].

Also, wage gap myth? And one in four what?

I'm not hip to American slang, smh.

We do have the power to impeach a member of our government, whether it be a state governer or a President. I think the ones who are worried of being under attack are just fine; this is why we have constitutional rights, granted that you are in fact a U.S. citizen, for protection. Not only does one have their rights, but the established, growing LBGTQ community will always fight for your equality even if a bigoted President was elected. If Trump were to commit any act of treason versus our nation, either he would have to change his views, or be indicted for going against our Civil and political rights.

I think the problem with impeaching Trump means that we'd get Pence as President. And no one wants Pence for President.

....Unless we can impeach him like 2 seconds after Trump. I don't think that has ever happened before.

Pence is worse than Trump. And even if Trump did something so inescapably abominable (don't know what that could be if not child rape) to the tune of impeachment, it's not gonna happen with a Republican Congress lol.

Hasn't really meant much in the case of poverty, mass incarceration, extrajudicial killings, etc etc.

Plus I don't think anyone is actually afraid of the campaign bluster or Trump himself. He's a fool. The danger is the judiciary and legislative power, and morever, emboldened nationalists, normalisation of nationalist fervor, and what that means going forward.

Also, if you not a citizen. Well.

I haven't really analyzed Pence yet. I mean, his views will obviously be similar to Trump's, but I don't know who he truly is.

Well, their executive characters are in question (SINCE THEY NEVER ACTUALLY OFFERED ANY POLICY OH MY GOD I still can't get over it), but unlike Trump who, again, is a fool and stunt queen who stumbled into office by accident, Pence has had a long and grimy political career. His policies have and always represented the worst of the reactionary early 2000s right-wing platform. Down to conversion therapy, even.

ETA: I'm upset that Trump supposedly has all that money and still has that terrible weave.

You know I don't mind that people are protesting, but I really do hope all the ones who are protesting actually voted
