Facebook is cancer. It's the Youtube comments of social media networks.

If half my relatives didn't expect me to be on there I wouldn't be anywhere near it. Fortunately only one uncle is that type and everyone else just ignores him whenever he says anything political.

I have a lot of veteran friends. And I log a group called 'The Mess Tent' some of my friends are coherent and civil even if they disagree with me. The mess tent admins Have repeatedly had to invoke the 'no politics' rule as the left wing and right wing ex-soldiers got into it as only soldiers can.

That said my circle of veterans doesn't give a shit about me being trans or anyone being gay. "do your job, have my back, the rest I don't care about'

and they know how to tell good 'tranny' jokes.

People feel like they need to turn off the political Autopilot all the sudden. Well, that is an ignorant statement really. I have no idea what politics were like more then twenty years ago (I do know what they were like 100 years ago though...). It feels like wars in the middle east have lead people to think that politicians are ineffective and with the community aspect the internet gives it allows people to hone in on that anger.

With that said I'd argue people actually need to stay involved at the moment because public outrage is creating a lot of fucked up political functions and a complete lack of oversight (It created Trump).

I guess free speech means we are all entitled to share our opinions , mine and yours, fair enough dont you think?

People have a right to be fed up and want change just the same as those that wish to celebrate how things are and delight in keeping the status quo as it is.


And there are those in between who cant identify with or want to choose and its their right to stay out of it if they choose and that ought to be respected. I myself am starting to think theyre all the same players who tell the masses what they want to hear and either never follow through or make things worse and are only out for themselves.

Trump made a lot of promises he didnt keep, clinton wasnt much better. Bernie sanders would have been a better pick but so many plebs and the rightist press were hung up on him fancying himself a democratic socialist having no idea that it is more like the Nordic Model and not Marxism-Leninism. Its irrelevant now but things might have been better if bernie got the nomination and beat trump, we would be enjoying the progress and wealth countries like Norway and Sweden have and not be sobbackward a country by comparison.

Forgive me, I digrees. TLDR ppl have good reason to hate and loathe and utterly avoid american politics even if they are americans.

I pay with money

If you're interested about politics, good for you, knowing how the world functions around you is useful

When it all comes down to it do you really think people spoke about something useful most of the time? Maybe back in a time when power ruled over anything, but look at our currency settle our disputes. Is it even the man anymore ?

Oh politics! That's right, I'm a law abiding citizen. Certain limits were never meant to be controlled.

But then again, at least the government knows what's best for me because common sense is such a waste of time, or people are just really useless. I'd like to think politics serves as a challenge for people, and it separates the strong from the weak.

I'm just that guy who laughs at it. Imagine if you had that wealth, how would you really go about running the show? You would have to fixate on accumulating more wealth for your power, because power means nothing without Money, I think humanity has made that perfectly clear

Nothing personal, just a good example.
Like your dying sister can't afford her life saving treatment.... shit, better start up a go fund me page. Medical expenses is just too high, there's nothing we can do. Go make a fucking movie out of that.... that's just politics baby, people helping people, because the government will consider taking your number at a later point in time. 5/5 compelling story, I was so touched by the acts of kindness that it completely changed my life. This is exactly what comes to mind when thinking about politics, especially the huge deductible at the end of the year xD that big juicy deductible

It's a circus, so join It, or walk away from it. There goes my ignorance again. I tried to find the off switch, but they never explained it in the manual, I tried contacting support

There are some political topics that still interest me, but yes some of them go around in pointless circles.

I find politics in general to be extremely toxic, in all honesty.

I think everyone's burned out on politics. Regardless of political orientation you can't deny that Trump essentially can't keep himself out of the news for more than 24 hours. So no one ever gets a break from politics. Everyone is engaged all the time and not in a healthy way. American politics has never been this toxic before in my lifetime. I'm not even American and its sucking us all in.

I think a parliamentary system would indeed solve many of America's political problems. The more this unfolds the more the American system seems untenable in the modern era.


Nope not everyone. 90% of the Trump base is still SUPER HYPED especially with our based water merchant selling super male vitelity vitamins! Heck this place is so slow and boring since I returned. The only activity seems to be from a couple old members and the unemployed. Its a non-stop happening party over at reddit.com/r/the_donald and in the few moments of peace we spread the word of kek.

Dont even pretend like you got sucked in. You were pushing Democrat ideals well before this election. You might be able to fool new people but you cannot fool me.
