  1. That would be true if people actually took you at...

    That would be true if people actually took you at your word, but nobody trusts what you or any other Republican voter has to say about immigration anymore. I'm sure everyone here remembers how for...
  2. I don't know what rock you've been living under...

    I don't know what rock you've been living under but the brain drain has been happening for decades, in fact it is likely the primary reason why we can still maintain a competitive, high-tech economy...
  3. How exactly would you limit immigration though? ...

    How exactly would you limit immigration though? You can't make a merit-based system, because the economy needs both skilled and unskilled workers, and in fact the latter are arguably MORE valuable...
  4. It hurts your argument because so casually...

    It hurts your argument because so casually aligning yourself with blood and soil politics simply because you refuse to consider open borders paints you as someone that isn't to be taken seriously. ...
  5. It doesn't help your point because for most...

    It doesn't help your point because for most people on the left, at least those with principle, immigration policy is an issue where their professed moral principles clash with their own self interest...
  6. Because billionaires are so well known for...

    Because billionaires are so well known for showing respect toward minorities and women. Peel away all that taste, etiquette, and feigned concerned for social problems, they are all the same evil...
  7. Trump is obviously reprehensible, but those upper...

    Trump is obviously reprehensible, but those upper crust New Yorkers can all go jump in a lake too as far as I'm concerned. I mean, if they had been able to put aside their snobbery for one second...

  9. I don't think that makes the patron-client...

    I don't think that makes the patron-client relationship quite explicit enough. Maybe we need to start charging all the NATO countries a jizya tax, take their firstborn sons hostage to be raised as...
  10. Of course we would think that trade can only...

    Of course we would think that trade can only bring benefits to society, because we are the ones that have all of the bargaining power to set the terms of trade, and we have never been shy about...
  11. Climate policy is actually something that we...

    Climate policy is actually something that we could probably do more or less unilaterally, because pretty much every other country is still abiding by the Paris accord, we are the only ones who are...
  12. I don't think it's really that difficult to piece...

    I don't think it's really that difficult to piece together - if you control some type of valuable resource then you need to be able to defend your territory so that others will have to buy it from...
  13. The ability to trade profitably depends on having...

    The ability to trade profitably depends on having enough bargaining leverage to negotiate favorable terms, it didn't really take long for most tribal peoples to figure out that you could get a lot...
  14. Trade is not something that exists separately...

    Trade is not something that exists separately from imperialism, the American dominance of the global economy relies heavily our ability to bully other countries into opening their markets and playing...
  15. How exactly would Americans be able to sustain...

    How exactly would Americans be able to sustain the obscene levels of consumption that we're all used to without access to cheap raw materials and foreign labor, or the clout to make favorable trade...
  16. The fundamental reality is that the continuation...

    The fundamental reality is that the continuation of America as we know it depends on maintaining the power, influence, and access to resources that come with being an imperialist superpower, and...
  17. Despite all the pearl clutching by the DC blob,...

    Despite all the pearl clutching by the DC blob, Trump's foreign policy was not really a major departure in substance from what previous administrations have done, and just as with domestic policy,...
  18. Perhaps one reassuring aspect of all of this is...

    Perhaps one reassuring aspect of all of this is that fascism and competence are sort of directly contradictory, because fascism is built upon fundamentally incorrect ideas about people, and so any...
  19. Except we've seen this movie before, a small...

    Except we've seen this movie before, a small number of "sane center-right" voters claim to be outraged by their party's direction and the Democrats bend over backwards to appeal to them, usually...
  20. Poll: With Ivy or any character in that vein, you...

    With Ivy or any character in that vein, you really have to be careful not to cross the line into outright smut, because once you're in that territory it becomes nearly impossible to appreciate any...
  21. The reason these media outlets have the platform...

    The reason these media outlets have the platform they do is because most of the business community and moneyed interests in this country are putting their resources behind them in order to cast...
  22. Giuliani wasn't some heroic figure who fell from...

    Giuliani wasn't some heroic figure who fell from grace though, who he is now is who he has been all along. His entire record as mayor basically centered around telling poor people to fuck off, and...
  23. It's always weird that people are always...

    It's always weird that people are always complaining about partisanship and polarization, when those are nothing more than a reflection of the underlying reality that the country is composed of...
  24. This is sort of the same line of reasoning that...

    This is sort of the same line of reasoning that people used in 2016 when they were claiming that Trump won because of economic anxiety or whatever. But the problem I see with this idea is, is there...
  25. This ain't it chief. Conservatives aren't...

    This ain't it chief. Conservatives aren't storming the capitol because they are just too stupid to know any better, they are doing exactly what best serves their interests within the structure of...
