Re: "good ol’ American exceptionalism." - a substandard, malfunctioning electoral system?

What's wrong with voter ID? Are you saying that the Native Americans are incapable of obtaining ID when Whites can? That is racist. Voter ID is to prevent cheating from the Democrats.

"Almost 40% of sub-Saharan African countries are in danger of slipping into a major debt crisis" according to the Overseas Development Institute, ahead of a major conference on debt being held in L...

Re: WWI

IMO, the finest documentary about WWI is this one:

Re: Jair Bolsonaro declared Brazil's next president

You need government in order to have capitalism. Win at all costs and take it all is tribal or at best feudalism. You say that as if it's indisputable, but a lot of thought has been put into how a market system could function with polycentric dispute resolution. And I have put a lot of thought into...

Obama only had the luxury of a Congress of (approx.) the same political colour as himself for just 2 years. The first midterm...

Re: The Trump's incriminating collusion with Russia megathread.
