      @Benoti Sanchez This would result in Republicans winning every election 80-20. The left will say “no it would stop Trump supporters from voting hurr” yet they would be the FIRST ONES screaming and crying if we ever actually implemented common sense laws like those. They’d be screaming “these laws are racist because blacks and Hispanics in the inner cities aren’t passing these tests” etc

      @chuchugugu I don’t suspect, I know. Leftists in 2019 are not the leftists of 1999. Democrats in 1999 were left but still loved this country and represented OUR citizens. NOW the left is a suicidal death cult that wants OPEN BORDERS and is more concerned about the well being of Aztec and African migrants than of American citizens. If the Founding Fathers rose from their graves tomorrow, they’d literally be executing leftists for treason for supporting open borders and ending our national sovereignty.

      Low IQ and slight racism…if he is white(TRUMP),he must be doing a good job,i will still vote for him even if the economy tubed…Dumber and Dumber !

    • @VOTE YES ON NPC VOTING RIGHTS REMOVAL ACT 2020 First off- Please provide evidence that Democrats want “Open” boarders.
      You cannot- because it is not true…
      Second- How the heck do you think your relatives came to America- They became citizens…
      I am guessing you do not believe a person not born in America has not rights to enter- even legally—
      People like yourself spread propaganda about issues to make your point, based on zero facts except Trump

      @Elmosweed I’m written a response to this caved in IQ level response of “nobody is for open borders” so I just copy pasta it to all of you retards at this point. Here it is:

      By virtue of being against all measures that would STOP something, you are implicitly FOR that thing. That’s how logic works. If I say “I’m not for bee keepers being stung by the bees they keep”, then oppose bee keepers being able to use protective bee keeper equipment, I am effectively FOR the bee keepers being stung by the bees by virtue of what I’m against. When every Democrat is against the ONLY things that will stop these migrants, changing the asylum laws and building a wall, they are implicitly FOR open borders and illegal immigration.

      Now, when your country is currently under SEIGE by a projected 1.5 illegal immigrants/”asylum seekers” this year ALONE from Central America, South America, and places as far as AFRICA, and you all raise your hands in favor of DECRIMINALIZING ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSINGS AND GIVING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HEALTHCARE, GUESS WHAT, you’re inviting and condoning that illegal immigration.

      You either have a STAGGERINGLY low IQ or are a disingenuous liar. Which is it?

  7. US steel companies among Trumps biggest donors. Gee go figure.
    Ban all private funds from federal elections and campaigns.ย 
    Limit length of time for campaigning.ย 
    Make voter registration automatic and permanent upon issuance of a social security card. Save the USA.

  8. People with no money invested in the stock market, and don’t work for a publicly traded company should never mention “The Stock Market” in economic conversation.

    • Are u implying the people in that video have no money invested in stock market? I hope you understand their 401k plans and other retirement accounts (IRA’s) rely on a good stock market for better returns. And what do you know, they may have thousands in stocks and bonds…. Just saying.

      The stock market tracks almost entirely just the top 50% of the economy, 90+% of the market tracks just the top 20%.

      The market is currently almost meaningless to half the country and means only a bit more to nearly an additional third.

      Of course there’s the exception of the workers of those companies that are making less than the top quintile chances of being let go…

      But then there’s the question of why if those companies had been doing well before, why those employees didn’t benefit more in the wage or stock options…

      Profit sharing please, maybe 10-25%. That way workers income can track the economy up and down and can invest in their own company more or even more resilient sectors of the economy.

    • Well how do you know that she isn’t invested in stocks, how do you know she doesn’t have a 401k, how do you know this isn’t a part-time job and she does work for a publicly traded company, dumbass, just because you don’t have any ambition or drive doesn’t mean everybody’s at way

    • @DYNAMITE DJANGO I’m not making excuses for mass shooters I’m just saying that just because he killed a couple of people doesn’t mean we demonize him until we Believe he is no longer human. He did it for a reason and if we were to understand that reason we could prevent more mass shooters.

    • DYNAMITE DJANGO | August 21, 2019 at 9:05 AM | Reply

      bombย  cool, keep that same energy when a black or Hispanic person commit a crime. Lets see how you feel when one of these mass shooters murder your mom, sister, brother, child, uncle, etc. I bet you wont be trying to figure out why. Soooo let me get this straight, if one person is shot= thug culture but if 9 people are shot at church its mental illness? Wow, the hypocrisy. Why not study all violent behavior not just privileged white boys who kill people for nooooooo reason! You people are truly ridiculous!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    • @DYNAMITE DJANGO mental illness usually isn’t responsible for mass shootings, the political polarization is causing the mass shootings. The difference between criminal murders and mass shootings is that one can be easily prevented. The criminal murders can be easily prevented with an increased police presence, hasher penalties towards drug offenses and allowing stop and frisk. We know these mass shootings are caused by political polarization. So instead of calling each other racists and trying to gain a majority so we can use it to force radical change on the opponent we need to come together and be reasonable. I understand that it may sound like I’m referring to the left, that’s because I am. leftist want to decriminalize border crossing which will lead to an open borders situation that will drive wages down and allow cartels to have more influence over Americans, so when conservatives are weary of this proposition you know why. Along with that you have medicare for all which will raise taxes drastically for everyone, free tuition for all, even higher taxes. The green new deal is incredibly radical and will only be funded with incredibly high taxes, most of us do believe in global warming but be also believe in a better way to fix the situation that won’t harm Americans. See if we come together instead of alienate the opposition there will be less political terror attacks from the right and left. It’s not about white supremacy because that isn’t even a popular ideology, it’s about conservatism as a whole

    • @DYNAMITE DJANGO I say it’s the media because most people generally liked Trump until the media started smearing him and everyone who supported him and that’s when the division started to intensify, but I guess you need to be at least a little proficient in critical thinking to put the two together. The media says things about Trump and give it day and night coverage until people get mad, they did the same for kavanagh, Hillary Clinton, and now people don’t really even like Obama too much anymore. The media says things leaves out context and important information to prevent you from arriving at your own conclusion. The best smear tactic used by many on the left is an old Communist tactic. Call you enemy a bad name over and over and soon people who usually don’t involve themselves in politics will associate your enemy with that name. Today that word is racist

    Yeah, a deep divide commonly referred to as an education.

    • Robert Johnson | August 21, 2019 at 4:16 AM | Reply

      Actually, Trump won whites with a college degree 49% to Clintonโ€™s 45%. The reason Hillary still won college degree educated overall is because 90% of black voters and 65% of Hispanic voters ALWAYS vote Democrat often for other reasons like social programs and immigration issues. Trump also won the majority of those that earn over 50k (you know those that pay the majority of taxes) and business owners. And yes, Hillary won the majority of post graduate degrees, but it’s no wonder considering most of them have been indoctrinated at the universities to become leftist elitist snobs. So do yourself a favor and stop being such a smug bigot by insulting working class people based on their level of education. When did that become okay? How would you feel about Republicans poking fun of poor blacks with low education?

      BTW: I’d be willing to bet that many liberals get easy degrees in the social sciences and then have trouble finding good paying jobs so they vote for Bernie or Hillary because they want somebody to pay off their student loans and raise the minimum wage because their worthless degree isn’t paying off. So maybe the smart guy is the one that gets his diploma, or a couple years in college, and then learns a trade, starts a business, and works hard to succeed without all that student loan debt?

    There is no convincing a Trump supporter their president is screwing them over royally. Also, they admitted even if he is screwing us over they will still vote for him. What kind of twilight zone are we in?

  20. It’s kinda funny how the logic of the economy always being an up and down thing doesn’t carry over when a Democrat is President.
