    BLM neo-fascist behaving badly.

    50/50 on that one, just playing the odds.

    When you run out of arguments you just resort to name calling. Classy.

    One of these images is a stock photo of paid models and one was taken during Trump's term of office. Neither of the captions are true and neither is anything BravoBravo has ever contributed to this discussion.

    Political realism of RBG passing

    The 'right' is a play on words created by the left to point out their propensity to let the ends justify the means. The left will always need more than a majority to take power. In this election, with this president, I'd say the over under is 3% for states with Republican legislatures. Meaning that the Democrats will need at least a 3% margin of victory in enough R states to take the electoral count to win the election. When you're looking at battleground state polling data from your favorite polling site, subtract 3% from the D for NC, AZ, PA, FL, OH and WI. Throw in polling bias and´╗┐ margin of error and you can see why the R's are taking this avenue´╗┐.

    Senate has the votes for confirmation

    And 4 Democratic Senate seats to keep it locked in.
  7. Mitch threw the last punch and now he's throwing another. It's his turn to be the better man and he's not so it's game on.
  8. The box was opened by Mitch no closing it now.
  9. Adding 2 justices to the supreme court? Waaah. Grow the fuck up. Elections have consequences.

    It does when you are dealing with Mitch McConnell.

    Yep, with McConnell he will do whatever he damn well pleases. Do you think McConnell would hesitate to pack the court? Hell yes he would. He just hasn't because the court is already packed in his favor. Do you think he would hesitate to bring a Republican leaning territory into the union? Hell yes he would, he just hasn't because there is no such thing as a Republican leaning territory. Keep turning the other cheek and you will keep getting slapped. Can't fight fire with flowers.

    Mitch said a bunch of lies and hypocrisy

    Political realism of RBG passing

    The rhetoric used by the republicans when they refused to debate and vote on Merrick Garland was not "Obama is not a Republican" it was "Let the people decide" to refuse to let the people decide in this case is gross hypocrisy.

    Puerto Rico has yet to pass a referendum to join. Ironic that it's Trump's actions that provide the catalyst.
  15. Too many states have all or nothing representation when electing the president. Furthermore if there's no majority of electors the whole thing goes to hell. This will always force a 2 party selection of the president. Even ranked choice hasn't solved the problem but it could get us there with non presidential positions. However ranked choice actually seems to have done more to breathe life into the fringe parties but that could just be a lack of a center party. If there were a center party I wouldn't be surprised if it took off in Maine and then watch the fireworks. We've already seen Tucker Carlson show his true colors at the possibility of that. I would love to see a Congress where no party holds the majority.
