I saw it mentioned in a video in my Youtube feed. I did a search and though, "holy shit, this is a thing" and posted. At least one poster here so far has said that they are on that side of the fence, getting rid of the senate. So....
I have faith that you will do a better job trolling the future.

I don't have to troll. I just have to post something truthful that goes against the NPC indoctrination, like the OP here for example, and the retardation grows organically from there.

Political article claims the Senate protects minority interests. How is stealing a SC nominee from Obama accomplishing that?
That was a shit maneuver by anyone's standards. If Trump really was the great man he wants to be, he'd have chosen whoever Obama wanted. That would have righted a serious wrong, and greatly elevated my opinion of Trump.

This is pretty typical loser strategy. If you can't win, whine bitch, cry, try to change the rules and accuse the other team of cheating. End of the day, you're still a loser.

It's too bad we can't give liberals their own political process, kind of like the special olympics although the democrat presidential primary is getting really close.
Fucking yourselves is fine so long as somebody else gets fucked harder & the ultra wealthy prosper. Because it will all trickle down like the Libruhl tears you love so much.

Trolling is definitely a choice. Can you put up a link to which dems in the house or senate are in favor of abolishing the senate? which prominent Liberals are pushing for this?

McConnell thought it was peachy & his caucus backed him up. Then he & Trump set out to dismantle the legacy Obama & his predecessors had created.

I cannot post a link to any Democrats in the House or the Senate that are for this. You know what? Just a few years ago I couldn't point to any Democrats that were calling for reparations on a national stage either. Or for convicted terrorists and child rapers to have the right to vote from prison. Or for socialism. The Democrats are leaping to the left, this could be a thing with them on a broader scale soon enough. They're already making noise about the electoral college.

You fucking idiot.....hahahaaaaaaa nice spin!! So let me get this right? It is a pure conjecture on your part? Yet when called on your vivid imagination, you cannot post anything concrete? But just like Your Lord and Master Trump you believe that just because you said it that makes it fact???

That's a lot of text. A simple no I can't would have fine.

Rich people aren't better than regular people. They're often much worse as human beings. They just have more money.

You are so disingenuous---
https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-now-says-us-companies-apple-may-pay-china-tariffs-2019-8
Even Trump is now admitting that US companies like Apple may be shouldering the cost of his China tariffs






  • The Trump administration gave the public a split-screen view of its approach to tariffs on China Sunday.
  • On Sunday, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro repeated a familiar line about the ongoing US-China trade war, saying China alone is bearing their full cost in a CNN interview.
  • But President Donald Trump veered in the opposite direction to Navarro and said the tariffs may be making it harder for Apple to compete with its rivals.
  • Trump's comments on Apple mark another striking development in his erratic messaging on trade in less than a week.
  • It reflects the escalating pressure the administration is facing from business leaders over fears of a recession and the large hit American businesses are taking.
The Trump administration gave the public a split-screen view of its approach to tariffs on China.

On Sunday, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro repeated a familiar line about the ongoing US-China trade war. He said in a CNN interview on Sunday the tariffs are not impacting American businesses or consumers and China alone is bearing their full cost — despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary.

"They're not hurting anyone here," Navarro said.

But President Donald Trump veered in the opposite direction to his adviser. Speaking with reporters, Trump said he met Apple CEO Tim Cook, who "made a very compelling argument" the administration's tariffs are making it harder for Apple to compete against its rivals.
"It's tough for Apple to pay tariffs if it's competing with a very good company that's not," Trump said.

Up until recently, Trump had repeatedly said China was footing the bill for the tariffs, which have been slapped onto $250 billion worth of Chinese imports. Asked about the partial delay on some of the tariffs last week, Trump said the move was aimed at sparing shoppers during the busy holiday season "just in case" tariffs impacted consumers.
Trump's comments on Apple mark another striking development in his erratic messaging on trade in less than a week, reflecting the escalating pressure the administration is facing from business leaders over fears of a recession and the large hit American businesses are taking.

Trump has long wielded tariffs as an economic weapon against China, arguing it'll help the US secure a better trade deal. But there are mounting signs the trade war is damaging the US economy.

A new report from the New York Federal Reserve released on Friday found some businesses and manufacturing leaders said the trade war is increasing prices and reducing their profits when compared to a year ago. They expected to pay higher prices for goods they purchase and an increase in the price for the products they sell.

"All of the U.S. tariffs have been passed to U.S. importers, U.S. retailers, U.S. consumers," Princeton University economist Stephen Redding told NBC News. "Somebody in the US is paying higher prices."

The administration's trade war is already starting to torpedo consumer confidence, with one of its key indexes dropping last month to its lowest level since January. Over a third of respondents cited the latest round of tariffs on China as a source of concern, CBS News reported.

Consumer spending powers around 70% of the American economy. If consumers show further signs of pulling back, then business leaders are likely to ratchet up the heat on Trump even further.

Expand the House by about 1000 more seats.

Expand the Senate by about 200 seats, with the additional 200 based on proportion of total population.

Make # of State EC votes equal to State % of total US population.

USSC Justices serve 18 year terms so each President appoints 2 per term.
