    Wow, are you that ignorant of the basics? Makes me wonder how many other conservatives have no clue about what's happening.

    Impeachment articles are the equivalent of bringing an indictment in...
  2. Poll: Constitutionally, yes. The constitution requires...

    Constitutionally, yes. The constitution requires the Senate to take an oath of impartiality, not the House.

    This is because the system is modeled on a police criminal investigation and...

    Well fluoridation does cause autism after all. And vaccines did 9/11 before faking the moon landing. Except it was all done by communist ideology. They're probably spying on us from our microwaves as...

    The constitution specifies that the Senators during an impeachment trial are to take an oath of impartiality, in a way that House members are not required to when deciding whether to pass articles of...

    Do you seriously think any Dems actually believe that Republican Senators will honor their constitutional oath to have an impartial trial? McConnell's already said he won't hold to that oath....

    It's a good reminder that when the Dems were doing the House investigation to decide whether there should be an impeachment trial, the...

    I think they are both being sincere.

    I tend to presume the discussion was along the lines of whether it would be easier for a man or a woman to beat Trump in 2020. They were both considering...

    That's crazy talk. There are impeachment articles for Trump. If the Senate votes to remove him, then Pence becomes President. Pence will then appoint a Republican VP. If there were to be a second...

    Meh. It's not really a problem. She'll learn over time. She's pretty new to politics and is still learning how to respond in new situations. She's aware enough of the situation to know that trying to...

    I saw an interesting poll today of Senators' approval ratings in their home states in Q4 2019.

    Of the top 10 most disliked senators, 8 are Republicans, with Susan Collins of Maine and Mitch...

    I don't think putting a person of color or a young person in a VP slot would actually attract many votes. I think there's almost no votes in rounding out the ticket demographically, and thus no...

    Warren seems to have made her peace with them, but yes in general they would prefer a Republican over Sanders. Trump, specifically, is not an average Republican, and I don't know which way they'd go...

    Um... if you'd asked be last week I would have said a Sanders/Warren ticket was the best possible ticket, both to maximize the chances of Dem victory and for the future of the country. Though...

    Biden's history with policies regarding black people isn't good. He's always been at the maybe-a-little-bit-racist end of the Dem party. One reason Obama chose him I think was to try and balance out...

    Current polling doesn't appear to support that statement.

    In general, political studies show only a small minority of voters pay careful attention to ideology (~15%). So it's not generally true...

    Um... Biden seems to be getting dementia. He gets muddled up quite often when he's trying to talk. His campaign have kept him away from the media to try and hide the fact that he's not all there, but...

    The establishment, DNC, and MSM have been at war with progressives since forever. They'd vastly prefer Republicans to win than progressives.

    The correlation between higher taxes and happiness seems relatively linear in the range 20%-45% of GDP, but there is no OECD data above that and I presume that it begins to drop off in the higher...

    Biden seems to have dementia too, which is one reason I think it's crucial that Bernie rather than Biden be the Dem nominee.

    It's not Breitbart, so it's not totally made up out of their imagination. WSJ is a Murdoch owned Trump ally, so they're unlikely to print something critical of Trump unless it's true.
