    Republicans just passed a 1.9 trillion dollar tax cut and didn't even use the money go brr excuse. They didn't use any excuse because they don't even entertain the idea of explaining austerity when it comes to things that benefit the rich. They just pass that shit and tell you to fuck off.

    Only dumb ass democrats bend over backwards and attempt to justify their spending to stupid ass dipshits like bert. And they only want to count the dollars for things that improve the lives health and dignity of the working class. But need to increase the bloated miltary budget? Good old Nancy's got you covered. And barely a democrat in sight that will open their mouth in protest about how fiscally irresponsible it is. So yes it's a bullshit argument and game that is not even worth entertaining.

    You borrow money from yourself at 0% interest because you're the nation's largest economy and your money has the biggest dick on the planet so you have limited risk of most everything related to the economy. You pay the money borrowed to your citizens so that GDP goes up several percentage points after all these people who were saddled with debt are buying shit now instead of paying some bank and/or you back. Repay yourself with increased tax revenue.

    Profit.

    Generally not great to engage but sometimes it's good to throw a little actual knowledge down in case readers don't know why people think what they think, even if it obviously very obviously will never matter to the recipient.

    Abbott did away with straight ticket voting so if DJ does beat trump in Texas I’m interested to see if he can pull down ballot races along still.

    If the Texas leg. flips which is possible it’s curtains for certain and we might actually have drinking water in twenty years.

    Like Lyrtch said about 200 pages back in the CV thread, we're one of the only (if not the only) country in the world that could instantly float enough capital to sustain our citizens/businesses/hospitals/etc. through this. Instead, we have the most poorly run response in the world.

    From 52-88 California voted for a republican president in every election but one. It flipped blue and still Dems don’t win every election. As long as I can remember every wave election the other side touts a permanent majority and then in 2-8 years it evaporates

    Having said that, if the dems are able to slam through DC and PR statehood, and the pubs are going to have to come to the table on some shit.


    I think.


    Maybe not. To be honest, the white power contingent is excellent at retaining their power, and while I can't see how they can continue to overcome the glacial demographic shift, but I've learned to not doubt them.

    Voting for a new state is as likely as voting for a new amendment to limit and fix campaign finance reform, which won't happen until there is a 2/3rds majority, which won't ever happen without creating DC and Puerto Rico as new states

    Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ohio being perma-red in 10-15 years somewhat balances Texas flipping. It doesn’t balance Texas, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina flipping. South Carolina eventually too.

    Florida is a tossup State in perpetuity it seems.

    You don’t have to wait for the president to admit a new state. The constitution specifically assigns that role to congress. DC might have to wait for the president because the way the bill is written is that it cedes federal land to create a new territory which then would become a new state. Giving away land from DC is probably something that requires a bill to pass congress and be signed by the president.

    I still say doing this is dangerous as the 23rd amendment could be viewed as giving the only remaining residents of the new radically smaller DC (POTUS & FLOTUS, maybe veep/second lady?, Ivanka, Jared?) 3 electoral college votes for themselves. This would in effect be giving 3 extra Republican electors to the ec this year. Just wait until the second week in November to advance this plan.
