Trump's potential revenge?

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-considering-starting-patriot-party-032833716.html The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Trump is considering creating a new political party. The "Patriot Party" would essentially be centered around his "America First" policies. I am 100% behind this. I don't care tha...

Re: Vids from Parler

As many phones as I saw in random pieces of footage, I would think there would have to be more somewhere. Perhaps on other apps/sites as you suggested. I'm kinda disappointed this is all they got in terms of video. I know they saved more posts that allegedly incite/call for violence. Any idea where ...

From what I understood, the data was in raw form when they hacked into Palor. Maybe there will be more videos/pictures/content down the line, or is this it?

Re: Can You Pass A US Citizenship Exam?

The actual civics test is not multiple choice everyone! It is an oral examination and you have to *fill in the blank*

The real 128 possible questions (and answers) can be found here:

Re: Can You Pass A US Citizenship Exam?

I got one asking what Benjamin Franklin was famous for wrong because the question writer had erroneously omitted being a traitorous cur from the choices. :razz: I don't know if the actual citizenship tests are multiple choice everyone. Remember these are practice tests, but well done regardless!

19 out of 20, because I went with 6 years for how long representstives are elected (that must be senators) instead or 2 years.

Does every rep get elected every 2 years?
Yep. US Senators are six year terms, Reps two. The entire House of Representatives is up for election every two years.

Re: "IT'S THE MEDIA!"

While I understand your viewpoint and agree with it on some levels (those pushing unsound ideas are part of the problem), I place a larger share of the blame on people not actually being interested in the truth. It's a repeating theme in history.

We ought to know better by now.

Re: Libertarian Party Slogans

Libertarians are usually pretty awesome people (at least the ones I have met). I think if we had a government that actually functioned exactly the way they wanted, it would be awful... It's great in theory, but in practice, it would be a disaster taking human nature into account. I hate these 'huma...

Re: "IT'S THE MEDIA!"

I should have explained what I'd like to discuss better:

Is it the media's fault for everything that's wrong with society, or just an easy scapegoat? My opinion is in the OP.

Re: US authoritarianism

Very sad day. Many Republicans in Congress, and even Pence finally were doing the right thing and then this bullshit... Fucking pathetic bunch of crybabies. Turns out they're only interested in "law and order" when things are going thier way.
