    Stop confusing the power and might of the USA with “the greatest democracy”, that’s the first mistake American make due the repetitious BS they are feed about how great their democracy is.
    Currently America is ranked 25th “best” democracy in the world, and has been down there of years if not decades.

      @Doctor Buga The US actually is the oldest continuous AND independent democratic (in whatever form) country in the world. There were obviously democratic societies before the US and while the Isle of Man is thought to be the oldest continuous democracy in the world, it is a self-governing British dependency. Iceland also has a very old democratic tradition but they weren’t independent until 1944. It’s a piece of trivia, if nothing else. I don’t think that’s what the Congressman was referring to though as mike suggested. American politicians toot that American Exceptionalism horn all the time, even when the US is demonstrably falling behind in a given category. It’s understandable why they do it, but it’s nice to recognize one’s shortcomings sometimes and work to improve them.

      @FREEDOM VS. FreeDUMB excuse me let me correct some of your twisted delusional terminology. First of all there is no such thing as “black supremacy” as the black community in the USA is considered a minority group therefore it is impossible that they can be a supremacy. Secondly, trump encouraged white trump supporters waving guns and nazi/confederate flags as they boycotted hospitals during a pandemic because they wanted to go back to work, yet when there’s protests against police brutality towards the black community trump tells the military and police to “dominate” them and be more “harsh”. Yet somehow you seem to twist these events on their head, saying its the other way around. You are a truly delusional, bitter, racist fascist trump supporter who needs to go get some education and therapy.

    • ​@Ivan Karamazov You know nothing about history.You are of course talking about Joseph Stalin not Donald Trump.Remember Stalin?Of course you do.Stalin and the Bolsheviks stirred up chaos in the streets for their revolution.I wonder who is stirring up the mobs on America’s streets?Oh yes let’s not forget Molotov who invented the Molotov cocktail.Remember him?And of course the Bolsheviks called others “fascist”.That sounds like you!And you even know about the Nazis.You are a smart cookie.Let’s see if I know my history.Comrad Stalin killed five million Ukraines before Hitler came to power.Did you forget that comrad.Let’s not forget Beria head of the NKVD who was the Heinrich Himmler of Russia.Remeber Beria don’t you?Of course you do.And Trump demonizes the media.Really?Maybe he really demonizes liars and Bolsheviks who are the media.So I guess I’m one of Trump’s delusional supporters.So glad you reminded me that I’m delusional.So Trump is not smart or clever either?Thank you comrad Ivan for speaking on the behalf of the Bolsheviks in America and the news media.Remember what Beria said,”show me the man and I will find you the crime.”HEIL COMRAD IVAN KARAMAZOV.

      I think something needs to be done to restore dialogue among Americans, in particular between the Fox News crowd and everyone else. These hate mongers on the right have been dividing the country for a long, long time, and in their echo chambers and alternative fact silos they make each other and the situation continually worse.

    • @Ivan Karamazov Dialogue with people who have now looted, pillaged and excused the deaths of more than 10x the people of the one person who’s tragic death started this? Why? We talk or you throw another tantrum? You think you deserve respect now? Fear? Conversation? Explain why?
      Where is the rioting happening in over 90 percent of the cases? Democrat cities run by Democrat mayors and Democrat elected officials with Democrat appointed police chiefs and in most cases Democrat governors and legislators but it’s the FOX NEWS types that need to listen? You folks are hilarious. The people YOU supposedly want voted in didn’t take care of the problem and you somehow think more of them will do a better job? No thanks. Happy to be living in a Red state with red mayors, police and governor where half the people I work with are minorities and all the violence on TV at the moment is just an alternative to reality TV while eating popcorn.
      You wanted Democrats in charge – you’ve got them. PS – don’t come to us asking for money to fix all the crap your buddies broke and don’t parade out the poor mother with her children crying about how bad her life is now that her city burned down. Your problem isn’t our problem. Maybe try motivating the locals to clean up their own city and show some decency and respect for others rather than thrown tantrums like kids.
      Anyone with a brain, get out of the low rent areas now – for your families safety if nothing else. Let the rest eat their own until they figure out that civilization must be civilized (it’s kind of the reason the word is what it is.) Dialogue indeed, lol.

The thing I hate most about people like you is everything is black and white, democrat republican, pro trump against trump pro racist against racism pro fascism against fascism you people are the reason nothing ever gets solved because instead of trying to solve an issue without choosing a side you try to force people in this radical viewpoint by labeling them names like racist racist sexist. I hate the left more than the right, but I also don’t believe the right has our best interest at heart.So I’m gonna ride this out wait for the inevitable civil war and choose the winning side than.

      I wish everyone spoke like this. I suppose it’s hard to do. But i get torn with caring and the rioters and the vile of others that make me swing back the other way. This at least helped me calm down a bit to know someone like this great man is active in govt. We need to listen to each other better and I don’t know how we got here, but it seems we stopped listening and having no empathy for either side. I am tired of feeling like its all my fault and then the only way to fix it is for me to die <<< this is why we have Trump. Trump isn't the cause but the symptom of brow beatings and no measurable objectives. Biden comes along and says hes going to fix it with a commission. WE have had that, all its going to do is send out reports, yep there's still poor black folk, yep many black folk died this year. So the division keeps on keeping on. To quote a show, Mostly, I'm tired of people being ugly to each other. I'm tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world every day. There's too much of it.

      And many who are aware of this, but largely powerless to change it. Hundreds of thousands of Occupy, Yang Gang and Bernie Bro’s are keenly aware of this.
      What do you suppose the far future holds when climate catastrophe, old third-world nation numbers of starving and desperate people look back on the veneer of RW-isms that keep spoiled citizens bamboozled to “exceptionalism” and/or the rich laughing all the way to the bank now? All the while sentencing their progeny to clean up the mess and EAT the rich foolish enough to think their money will continue to protect them and their offspring in worldwide drought and famine they created? Catastrophe that will make the Dust Bowl look like a short era of shortsightedness, and sharing meager resources is all we have left… get that double entendre there? There’s the right that only fight with forced might, then there’s what is LEFT.
      There are those who are keenly aware that even the Trumpers mostly are the 99 percent, what ratio is inevitable? No one will be fooled by the likes of Trumpism when there’s nothing to eat from the dry land, the dead oceans, and savoring, hoarding every drop of fresh water that falls like gold to survive the dry spells.
      Damn fools keep that pendulum from it’s full swing, but they’re slowly breaking the strands of rope strong enough to keep it there.

      @Johnathan Waters Climate change requires a global effort if it is to be averted. With or without the US, China, India and every other large country also needs to implement significant changes, and I don’t see China or India doing that so far. We could clean up our economy and it wouldn’t help much with the rest of the world carrying on as it has been.

      @Ivan Karamazov China literally leads the world in renewable energy generation (absolute figures) and is approaching 30% of their total electricity generation from renewable sources (currently around 27%). They are arguably pushing harder than anyone else right now because it’s a huge power play for the Chinese government. India currently generates about 22% of its electricity from renewable sources but has the lowest absolute figures. The US currently sits ~17% electricity generation from renewable sources. In absolute figures, the US generation from renewable sources is about the same as China in 2010. The US also consumes significantly more energy per capita than China or India (the gap is closing for China though). The US will benefit significantly more from a massive reduction in consumption where possible. It’s not an easy switch for such a large country home to a culture of excess.
