  1. @BruceVCThere is not best system. Ideological purity always causes more problems than it solves. When it comes to policies you should go with ones that work best in big picture instead of trying to force policies that don't work because they belong ideology you like generally.
  2. Left-right divide is what anybody doing the divide wants to it to be. Origins of the divide comes from French Revolution, wikipedia has pretty good article about origins of left-right political spectrum: "The terms "left" and "right" appeared during the French Revolution of 1789 when members of the National Assembly divided into supporters of the king to the president's right and supporters of the revolution to his left. ... The terms "left" and "right" were not used to refer to political ideology per se, but only to seating in the legislature. After 1848, the main opp
  3. Yes in case that changing stance means that they will add reason for block in tweets in which they have blocked the URL to New York Post article
  4. That is just simply bull****. There was no war when Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was made and both parties were aggressors in war that followed said agreement. Also western nations made pacts with USSR and they even sold them lots of the weapons that they used in their invasion. And US for example traded lot with Soviet union after 1933, which made it possible that USSR was able to build it industries. Also still in beginning of 1939 France and UK were seeking military alliance with USSR after Germany took over the Sudetenland, but those ended in May when Molotov become the foreign
  5. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/10/12/california-illegal-ballot-boxes/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=wp_main "The California GOP has pushed voters to pop their mail-in ballots inside. Social media posts have advertised their locations, and one regional field director posted a photo to Twitter on Friday showing him holding a ballot in front of one of the boxes. “Doing my part and voting early,” Jordan Tygh wrote in the now-deleted tweet, which was reviewed by The Washington Post before it was removed. “DM me for convenient locations to drop your
  6. Probably first winner who has given any doubt that they aren't deserving the prize
  7. It is because god emperor protects america
  8. Chavez has done lots of things to destroy Venezuela's oil industry (like in 2005 selling oil to US 40% below market price), but he is not responsible of nationalization of Venezuela's oil industry and kicking out foreign companies "Under the presidency of Carlos Andrés Pérez, whose economic plan, "La Gran Venezuela", called for the nationalization of the oil industry, Venezuela officially nationalized its oil industry on 1 January 1976 at the site of Zumaque oilwell 1 (Mene Grande). This was the birth of Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA). All foreign oil companies that once did busine
  9. Number of confirmed covid-19 cases world wide: 34,410,636 Number of deaths by covid-19: 1,022,787 So survival rate is currently 97% Suvival rate in USA is only 0.1 percent better
  10. People joked about debates over zoom, after the debate, but looks like that it may actually be only way how remaining debates can be organized now
  11. Personally I probably will get richer if Trump is elected again as current republican and Trump policies have actually increased Finnish products and services ability compete in European markets. Meaning his trade war with EU hurts our american competition on European markets and USA's sanctions against Russia has made Finland even bigger port to Russian markets, like they ship sneakers from China to Finland so that they can be imported to Russia. And sanctions and threats against Chines companies has given Nokia ability to grab quite lot European 5G contracts and so on. But Trump's presi
  12. In 2016 when Trump won he called fraud in basis of millions of people voting illegally in person. So I am sure that Trump will again call fraud regardless of results
  13. There were 33.4 million votes cast through mail in 2016 election That second link absolutely tells how you can't trust mail-in-voting "The California secretary of state’s election data obtained by the AP showed 102,428 mail-in ballots were disqualified in the state’s 58 counties, about 1.5% of the nearly 7 million mail-in ballots returned. " "The most common problem, by far, in California was missing the deadline for the ballot to be mailed and arrive. To count in the election, ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received within three days afterward. Statewi
  14. I am not sure if half of republican voters can be described as fringe group https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/311949-poll-belief-in-conspiracies-largely-depends-on-political-identity https://today.yougov.com/topics/politics/articles-reports/2016/12/27/belief-conspiracies-largely-depends-political-iden
  15. People believed that there was child prostitution ring in basement of one tier building that doesn't have basement without evidence and didn't not believe pictures and videos that showed that there was no basement. So people will believe anything their side tells them regardless of facts evidence or probability of the thing. Voting by mail has been most popular in states controlled by Republicans. So it isn't like those who no 'fear' voting by mail aren't familiar with the system and know that it is as safe as voting in person. Especially when you take in account that majority of in
