EtcetEraThreadShut the fuck up about how you won't be "bullied" to just vote for the Democrat no matter who: Trump threatens to cut funding to Cali over Abortion

He isnt supporting trump you feckless jerkass. An individual not voting is not "voting for theperson I dislike". Not voting is not voting, it's a zero sum action, this is all just moral grandstanding. You just want a reason to scream at a disabled person and feel superior to tthem over a valid critique of their reason to simply not vote. it's shameful.

It's fucking ridiculous to try and keep everything into one giant megathread when that literally just does nothing other than drive people AWAY from talking about these things.
Like you really think that people wouldn't look a little more apprehensively at a candidate knowing their relationship with a noted segregationist? Of course they would.
It's absurd, it's a blatant controlling of the narrative to try and stifle any ACTUAL discourse outside of the 15 people in this incredibly opaque thread arguing in circles, as has been stated dozens of times with absolutely no actual answer other than "it goes in here until the debates" as if that's not incredibly arbitrary.
This is a discussion forum with the STATED rule "new news, new thread".

I'm sorry that you've suffered, but I in no way disrespected you. You are entitled to your perspective, but your perspective is just that, as you openly accused me of lying repeatedly because I don't live there and thus cannot possibly know anything about it unless an expat tells me so. You're not the only one that has studied these things, you're not the only voice that carries. Your nation is "socialist" in name only, by all conventions of socialism and how it actually is and what it actually entails it fails to meet these standards.
You are wrong, by the definition of the theory of socialism, you are wrong. Your country is not communist, it is not socialist, it is a crony capitalist state run by a single party. This does not discount your suffering. It does not diminish it. But if you want to cry out about disrespect because of that pain then don't accuse anybody that you disagree with of lying to you. I said you didn't understand because you didn't showcase understanding. Because the point is that those words and these ideologies have specific meanings.
