This a thread for civil discussion? My social media is cuck libtard trumpette and a few others. I just want to know if I'm to expect intellectual honesty relatively speaking, I'm interested in what I've seen so far.

Hearts and minds?

Maybe it's disappointing that the only thing they have to fall back on for the next 4 years is "but her emails".

I wonder what percentage of turnout in non-Voter ID states is fraudulent.

zero if you round to the nearest millionth of a percent


LOL.

You think that fraud is never successful, every single case of attempted voter fraud has been detected and prosecuted.

So you posit that there are more than 1.3 million fraudulent votes cast per year, of which we have only been able to catch one millionth of them, a handful of these being people trying to demonstrate how easy it is to vote fraudulently

got it

Polling station won't let you inside naked. you have to buy clothes to vote. Clothing requirements are racist!

Why should you have to wear clothes to vote?!

so now you're equating the need for clothing with a time/monetary investment that has no other use
good logic there

This is the way polarizing topics like this have always been. For practically everyone, politics is essentially a proxy battle for your soul. No, seriously.

You, presumably, believe you are a Good Person. Because you are a Good Person, you consider your own political beliefs to be the Right Way. Your opponents are the Bad People, and they believe in the Wrong Way.

Now, copy-paste this with a Trump supporter. To them, they are the Good People and you are the Bad People. To admit Trump or the Republicans might be wrong, is to admit that they are actually the Bad People. Realizing in hindsight that you are, in your own simplistic worldview, a Bad Person can be an existentially terrifying experience. Thus, most people in general want to avoid that experience at all costs. It does not help that today more than ever there is little to no nuance in arguing politics, especially in public.

Now combine that with the fire-and-brimstone Christianity of the Religious Right. If you are a Bad Person, you're going to Hell after you die. Death is not an escape. You must be a Good Person to get into Heaven.

But, no matter what, there's always that sliver of doubt. What if you reach St Peter at the Pearly Gates and he tells you "Sorry mate but that thing you thought was Right? It was Wrong. You're the Bad Person now"? Are you doomed? Well, you can say "I didn't know. I thought I was Right based on what I knew at the time." If you can successfully argue from ignorance, that's doing Wrong in innocence, and you get a free pass.

So all those eggheads saying climate change is man-made? They have some kind of financial incentive to make those arguments (ignore the oil companies who spend millions lobbying our representatives!). Those people saying racism is still alive and well? They're the real racists because they're "causing division" (ignore those voter ID laws our representatives are implementing that target black people with "surgical precision"). Those journalists saying Trump has very close and suspicious ties to Russia? They're spreading "fake news" because they have a political agenda (ignore that the "fake news" craze because a nutty conspiracy theorist was told the Clintons were running a pedophilia ring out of his local pizza joint and decided to shoot it up).

But that's just the way I see it. I'm one of the Good People after all.

Admitting a flaw in their candidate is a sign of weakness to some people.

There's nothing that says that a fake can't beat the real thing.

You must not imagine that for beings like you and us there can be laughter. The low men laugh, and we envy them. But for us, the higher ones, there is no laughter, only an unending vigil, purely serious, stretching on into the night.

To people who live in the city, walk everywhere, can't afford/don't want a car, etc? Yeah, it has no use other than voting.

There's no need for insurance if you don't have a car.
