So my AP gov class has one conservative/ republican Trump supporter and the rest are democrat, independent, liberal, socialist, and such. Conservative says a lot of offensive trolly shit in the chat to try to upset people and the rest of the class never fails to shut him down.

What makes it even more impressive is that they do it without compromising their own values just to prove a point. They don’t take the easy way out and just back the Democrat view, they criticized both sides.
Good points made overall. Remember that it’s good to think outside of parties. Be critical of every side, including your own. And if you don’t want to engage in these kinds of conversations, it’s always an option to leave or ignore people.

Mexico’s president has said he intends during the meeting to propose to Biden a new Bracero-style immigrant labor program that could bring 600,000 to 800,000 Mexican and Central American immigrants a year to work legally in the United States.
A senior Biden administration official declined to say whether the U.S. president would back or oppose the proposal, saying only that both countries agree…
murdering people in other countries and start helping our own citizens. But for that to happen we need to stop murdering others first instead of doing both simultaneously.
No problem. Like yes it sucks that we didn’t get stimulus checks, and yes stim checks are relevant to the greater conversation around this administration. But at the same time there is a really sickening tendency for US/global north leftists to center ourselves in political conversations in a way that’s just extremely Not It bro.
Her enemies keep referring to AOC as a “bartender”.
All I think now when they do that is, “So, like Guinan, then?”
I’m good with that.

Apparently, Sanders said:
“I am very concerned that last night’s strike by U.S. forces in Syria puts our country on the path of continuing the Forever War instead of ending it. This is the same path we’ve been on for almost two decades. For far too long administrations of both parties have interpreted their authorities in an extremely expansive way to continue military interventions across the Middle East region and elsewhere. This must end.
“In 2019, Congress passed the first War Powers Resolution in history to end U.S. participation in the war in Yemen. Congress passed another such resolution in 2020 to prevent Trump from starting a war with Iran. These were important and historic steps by the Congress to reassert Constitutional authority over the use of force, and we must continue to build on those efforts. While the President has a responsibility to defend the people of the United States, our Constitution is clear that it is the Congress, not the President, who has the authority to declare war.”
Well damn, boy. I agree. Senseless wars are bad as well as a return to Congress’ power to declare war. Yeah. Good stuff.
Just kinda a damn shame you did not have what it took to stand against the DNC establishment and sold your base to them…. twice.
