wait, foxnews bashing israel?
I don't think it's necessarily bashing, they're just saying that's where weapons come from.
I'm always weirded out by articles like these, especially by fox news, because i find them to be.... sensationalist, bigoted, and generally incorrect. Not because i'm affiliated with one party or another(i'm not) but because most news media outlets push some sort of agenda to their sheeple viewers. When i see actual well-written documented and factual articles it makes me doubt them, just a little.
if they want to stop the guns, let them prove they can do it by stopping the drugs and money first
They should just ban the drugs.
you're not associated with any party? are you a freshman in college or something?
No i find myself sort of apathetic towards politics of elected officials, mostly because our votes dont count, the electoral college and popular votes pick the president. I didnt vote for obama btw, i voted for ron motherfucking paul, baddest mofo on the planet of texas. I cant consider myself democratic because i dont agree with a lot of their dumb shit, and i dont agree with republicans for some of their dumb shit, i guess i'm more republican than democrat.
the problem is that in america "there are only 2 parties" and a third party vote is a waste.
"nobody votes for a third party candidate because he doesn't have any chance of winning because nobody votes for a third party candidate"
which is why democracy doesn't work, damnit!
yeah i get what you're saying. i feel somewhat similar being torn between the two parties but i definitely lean more right than left.
To be fair, the two major parties have expended a great deal of effort entrenching themselves into the political system to the exclusion of other parties that might usurp them.
Witness the un-elected Federal Elections Commission which by law has 6 commissioners, no more than 3 of which can be from the same party, all appointed by the President. Funny that only Republicans and Democrats have been appointed to it thus far...
ron paul > libertarian > republican > democrat
i think they got a creme for that
"Just pick whichever number works for you, Madam Secretary, don't worry what statistic it actually represents..."
elected representatives speaking in an official format should have to be sworn in and face purgury for blatant bullshit like this
