Trump supports removing estate taxes
removing capital gains and dividend taxes
removing corporate taxes

The only reason he's trying to get so much power is so he can increase his own wealth
the only reason he's running as a republican is because they're stupid enough to eat up his lies

Rubio and Cruz are attacking each other because they both feel that with the other gone, the become the anti-trump with enough power to become the nominee. Problem is, it's not working. Both are there til the bitter end I believe, and neither of them are attacking Trump in a way that would guarantee they'd beat him anyways. This worries me because I'm starting to have doubts that Trump can beat Hillary in the general election.

"Thanks Trump" ends sort of unexpectedly, it leaves you wanting something more, something with substance
"Thanks Bernie" see above
"Way to go Shillary" good, but too cumbersome. "Thanks Shillary" again just doesn't have that feel to it that Thanks Obama does

That actually gives me a more neutral and broad look on the entire thing.

Dont get me wrong, Obama was hyped in the media here to during his first campaing. He was pictured a god given embodyment of positive change. And the other dude, wel uhm. They didn't really talk about the other dude, uhm...Mccain. Remember it because of South Park.

Obama was very charismatic in the media, Mccain was some guy, and the media made me think Obama was going to win by anywhere between 85 and 95% and the other 5-15% are just racist or possibly friends with the other dude

And Obama is what i like to call the first of the new hype presidents. Guy got hyped up and people got dissapointed when the statees did not turn into a racial harmonious utopia with a tripple GDP in 2 weeks.

A little bit of both will happen if Trump becomes potus, and the hype/dissapointment rollercoaster would hit the Bern twice as hard as Obama. Especially because the majority of his voter base are college kids who are out of touch with reality.

I'm going to preface this by saying I haven't read the book so I'm missing major context. But is Starship Troopers pro or anti fascism? The movie really struck me as being anti fascism but I remember hearing people talk about how Heinlein supports it.

Two big rules of thumb to keep in mind; films will rarely if ever be able to capture most of critical depth of a given piece of source material Orson Scott Card, another big name in science fiction, made a pretty interesting commentary regarding this and his reluctant struggle with trying to make an Ender's Game film , and ultimately they might have their own different frame of reference for the story to compensate for this.
In the book, there's a lot of depth that isn't quite covered in the film for reasons that are somewhat obvious; for example, conversations between characters that are more focused on philosophy on both a political and moral degree, a majority of which is centered on a character who sort of "enscribes" some ideals correlating to fascism on main characters like Rico, who are students at the academy by this point in the novel.

Regarding the film, I believe the director (Paul Vierhoeven) himself even came out on a DVD behind the scenes clip and mentioned how the focus of the film was intended to be satirically anti-fascist, with a majority of the concept riding on the idea of "War makes fascists of all of us". Also, the film's script actually originated from something unrelated to the original Starship Troopers novel and a lot of details were kind of spliced in. This is pretty glaringly obvious by the fact power armor was a thing in the novels and is not even so much as hinted at in the films, and many other parts of the novel's universe are just entirely omitted.

Overall, I'd VERY much recommend reading the book, or finding an audiobook at the very least www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r9znBPjhjc especially if one is very interested in reading from one of the best science fiction writers of all time. Robert A. Heinlein deals with a number of political topics in his novels, like how he takes a strongly libertarian stance in Stranger in a Strange Land

To me the only signs of incompetence within the government itself was it's military tactics. They essentially went WW2 USSR style on the bugs, and paid horribly for it. But that could be argued to be because of unpreparedness, or underestimation.

But think of it like this

Earth is super rich people town now. Rico talks with his parents about vacationing to some beach planet in another solar system, and in the sequels they talk about the war on other populated worlds, implying humanity has spread far and wide across the Milky Way or beyond. It's literally and earlier era of Warhammer 40k, which is why they just use USSR tactics against the bugs: There are too many soldiers and not enough quality equipment, or the capability to produce the required amount of quality equipment. The best tactic is literally to arm guys with whatever they have and throw them at a force until one side wins an bloody battle of attrition, because against a hive mind doing the same not much else is gonna work for infantry at least

I'd say it's pro-Fascism, or honestly neutral and just showing what a far future fascist society could be like: Extreme Military presence, Military run government, only Veterans get to have a political say, etc. It's really a futuristic Spartan society, and the Spartans were a flourishing and well of society until they stopped their famous ways and instantly got fucked by Rome

I'm just pissed the movie didn't have the Power Armor scene from the book, because the entire chapter they used to describe in detail how power armor worked and was deployed was absolute machinist porn

It pissed me off how in just ONE scene they did a bombing run on the bugs before sending in the ground troops and never did it again in the whole movie, But it seemed like their over-all battle plan, how it was hinted that the whole war was the federation's fault, running LIVE-FIRE training exercises with recruits all seemed to imply the top level leadership was a load of crap.

I took it as more of a authoritarian regime caring more about real training over safety. I mean they allowed whipping and the drill Sergeants were allowed to outright injure the cadets, ie knife throwing scene and breaking an arm. Plus we do some similar exercises in the training I'm going through now, though obviously not quite as extreme.

Yeah the punishment seemed unnecessary but fit the theme more than it took from the realism, but the live fire exercise just seemed pointless, it didn't add to the training and lost them 2 soldiers. I get range training and simulation, but having them shoot holograms with real guns just seemed to be asking for trouble.

The idea of civil service as the default to citizenship (presumably more than just military service) is really interesting though.

Yeah I agree, they even had a scene where they were using lasers for capture the flag, so why they wouldn't incorporate that instead is beyond me. Probably just to progress the movie plot.

And I agree, I've always thought that when someone has put work directly into their government or society that they'll become more interested and informed about the political process. So a republic or democracy founded upon the idea that the right to vote should be earned through military or civil services to the state is one that would be interesting to see actually play out.

My only worry about such a style of governing is that the state would be seen as providing for the people and not the other way around, and could very easily be authoritarian in nature with restrictions on many freedoms.

I feel like we've been through this before and you ignore my point. Look I'm as an America-lover as anyone. I wish to live there soon since Canada is such a shithole, however America has definitely fucked up Syria due to its overly-Hawkish foreign policy and is primarly to blame for this.

They went after Assad at the beginning of his civil war and funded Islamic extremists, literally the wrong side. Not only did that fuel this civil war immensely but it also means that equipment and money inevitably went to the people organizing ISIS which helped them spawn as a serious force in the region. Not to mention the Iraq War also helped destabilize Iraq leading to a double plus for ISIS to take advantage of the situation.

So we have a weakened Syrian government thanks to America, we have a destabilized region thanks to America and we have ISIS take advantage - further destabilizing Syria and making the refugee crisis happen thanks to America. Now Russia is rightfully so cleaning up the mess and regardless of how much of a threat you think they are, they are morally right in doing so. bonus Trump agrees with everything I've said

It was even foreseeable that something like this happens because Hafez Al Assad had always oppressed fundamentalists and the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.

For example :

There was once a try to assassinate Hafez Al Assad, they threw two grenades which one he kicked away and a bodyguard threw himself onto another.

The answer was to kill ~100 religious insurgents in the prisons in their cells, smoking out insurgent tunnels with gasoline and a tank on the other side shelling everyone running out of the tunnel, and leveling the town of Hama after they tried to rise a insurgency in the Mosques of Hama.

There are Syrians even now condemning Bashar Al Assad because he is/was too soft at the start of the conflict

Well, US actions have largely led to many of the issues in the area today. And not only have we aided and trained rebels within Syria. Many of the ISIS leaders are US trained, just like Al Qaeda and the Muhajadeen before them.

It's not all americas fault, but it's arguable that we made it worse than it worse. What with funding the rebels without first making sure they weren't terrorists.

Joke about Nanking:
"You fucking psycho, how dare you joke about bla bla bla"

Joke about Armenian genocide:
"You fucking Turkroach, how dare you joke about bla bla bla"

Joke about the Holocaust:
"lol my 6 gorillion xDDD"

Will it ever be possible for FJ's userbase to be consistent?

You'd think if there was one thing we could agree on it would be that genocide is a bad thing.

Totally agree. It's just unfortunate that it shows so many are incapable of producing a single, independent thought.

it's like when people say "/pol/ was right again!", with the amount of posts that board has everyday, one of the things is bound to be at least slightly right.

I saw a post saying how WW3 was going to happen because Putin was not seen for a few days, one part claimed MI5 had assassinated him.

I'm pretty sure the majority of FJ that is ok with the Holocaust jokes are also ok with the other two. Those who aren't are stupid panzy pussies.
