Re: Population Control - An inconvenient truth

Americans crack me up.
You all witter on about corruption, wrongdoing going against the constitution etc. Then you all go on about impeachment of DT.
By the time anything is actually done, DT will have finished his term and the next president who wins with the lowest populace vote will be installed and you'll all be moaning on about him/her.

As for the coup that Doc hinted at, I can't really see that happening. I recall the uprising in Selma Alabama in 1968, that was a brilliant opportunity for the authorities to kill as many blacks as they could under the quelling a riot banner.
Imagine how many the authorities could kill going under the quelling a coup banner.

To be fair though, in the UK we moan on just the same about governments whoever is in power, but our action is to write a strongly worded letter to our MP's.

The discrepancy between the popular vote and the electoral college can be found in California. In fact the so called millions of popular votes that Hillary em massed came from "New Democrats" in California if you get my drift. More new Democrat voters, now clamoring at the southern border.

True enough, he had to move to the center to get elected. But he governed from the left. Which is fine and not a surprise.

3 million across the country as a whole. Certain states including California, New York do indeed have a large Democratic majority but that's not relevant to the overall population voting numbers.

I assume you mean Obama though the previous sentence you quoted didn't mention him.
Again its a matter of perception as to what constitutes 'left' or 'right' - let alone extreme ....

In the UK, Obama would have been viewed as a centrist politician, particularly in terms of economic policy.
In fact I'm not aware of any well established & internationally known US politicians who would be regarded over here as extreme left.
Bernie Sanders is certainly a left wing politician by US standards but would fit in the middle of the Labour Party here.
Of course our own (not so well loved) ex-PM Tony Blair could easily have been a Conservative in terms of many of the actions he was responsible for.

Re: Population Control - An inconvenient truth

Clinton ran as a centrist, but governed from the left.

Re: Population Control - An inconvenient truth

You mean Bill? There we would also disagree.

He did preside over one of the longest periods of economic growth in recent decades. Of course that was at least partly due to the budget cuts under Bush Snr (41) which alienated much of the Republican base and was a contributory factor to him losing in 1991
