I'm going to pretend I'm voting for the Party for Socialism and Liberation for internet cred but actually not do that because my time is worth something
boycotting elections is worth more cred than voting psl. even psl doesnt care about your vote
As evidenced by the fact that their candidate for vice president is literally ineligible for the office without somehow managing to discard the US constitution during the election and/or revolutionary peoples' war.
he means their vp candidate is under 35 but really that would be the least of their problems
yeah that's it. It's a small thing and a stupid thing but that's the eligibility criteria under the law. I'm sure hes a great guy and yeah they werent gonna get any votes anyway so the actual eligibility of the candidate is irrelevant but it also shows they don't take it seriously.
And while all men and women of education and sound moral principles understand that nothing about a USA presidential election should be taken seriously, we're also not running a candidate for it. It just sends a confused message IMO.
yeah i mean they do usually come in behind...the openly fascist party
So, last place then
i'm voting naxal
I think part of it is that the 2 halves of the capital party long ago established redundant laws to even further prevent any competition, so there are requirements in some states to do token bullshit like run a presidential candidate in order to stay registered as a political party or some nonsense.
the psl presidential candidate is basically just an awareness tactic to try to get people to know the psl exists. could those efforts be better redirected elsewhere, idk
i still have fond memories of their presidential candidate in 2008 standing alone in the quad at my university handing out pamphlets to whoever passed by
Wow you've had sex? That's really cool to me, who's never had sex.
trump's supposed anti-imperialism is based entirely on the notions that he's not just speaking for troops who demand more compensation from the countries they occupy and that no empire has ever intensified its oppression and domination of insufficiently aryan countries after consulting a profit-loss assessment.
In English please?
Maybe Trump is going to espouse every political viewpoint that the imperialists find distasteful, then lose dramatically, then anyone who agrees with them on any issue can be labelled a Trumpboi or whatever, for the next 50 years
actually that was the plan all along. source: it makes sense to me, a paranoid internet poster
of course, being idiots, they don't comprehend the intensely obvious fact that the state of affairs of america having military bases and protection rackets everywhere wasn't something that we were tricked or forced into. it was deliberate policy engendered to make the US the sole power, to claim and project an ideology of superiority and dominance, to ensure never-ending weapons contracts, and to ensure "stability" by ensuring that the prevailing order would continue without any bad-for-business military actions happening without all the rich countries either on board or at least not going to do anything to stop them.
however, while i admittedly am not very familiar with the public mood around decolonization inside the colonizer countries themselves, i have a very strong suspicion that within these populations the general sentiment was not; 'oh, we were monsters, how could we do that to those people, we should stop,' but rather something closer to the ideology of Trump and his supporters: that we are great and these people are greedy ingrates and we don't have the money to keep helping them anymore
