Democratic socialism is better than socialism, because it's democratic.

Brexit is proof that democracy doesn't always work. We want a second referendum.

It's not about validation, dummy.

It's simple, you have alot of swipes, Idk how much but maybe like 30, and the only way someone can message you is if you have swiped them. So instead of wasting like 30 minutes going through each and every profile you swipe everything and if someone hot messages you you can message them back.

I don't have time to analyze every girl. Ugly bitches messaging me doesn't mean anything if I don't respond, plus my net is so large that eventually I match with a really attractive one and i can message them.

If she messages me I don't need to analyze everybody, I'll just open the message and look at her pic. Out of all my matches I can just swipe my finger and see all their pics. Plus I have to swipe 30 times, but I'll only really get like 3-5 matches on a good day.

So, I watched John Oliver's video on mutual fund retirements vs index fund retirements, and I have to say, when he's not talking about politics he's actually alright.

Definitely makes me rethink step 4 of Dave Ramsey's baby steps, which I've been wary of ever since I saw people comparing Dave to Suze Orman.

they are against the 1st amendment
they are against the 2nd amendment
they are against the 4th amendment
they are against the 5th amendment
they are against the 9th amendment
they are against the 10th ammendment

the word liberal means freedom
why are they called liberals?

Many Republicans also don't care for the 4th, and I'd argue that given enough power, any political party would try to take away some aspects of freedom of speech.

Libs are worse I guess.

idk why republicans would be particularly against it, but the reason why he brought it up was because one of the democrats 2 gun provisions last week put barred people from buying guns if you're on a terror watch list with no judge or jury. The Republicans offered a similar provision, but would provide a judge and jury to see if there was probably cause that the individual in question was involved in a terror plot. Democrats refused it.

Oh yeah, I saw that shit. Dems are being a bunch of thumb sucking whiners. We agree to some of their terms but not all and they start crying and sitting in.

Also many Republicans want to throw out the forth amendment when it comes to investigating suspected terrorists

1. majority of democrats are in favor of hate speech laws
4. "if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear"
5. no fly, no buy
9. they think government can do whatever the hell it wants
10. literally their entire platform

1. The majority of Republicans support decency standards. If you like free speech America isn't the country for you.

4. Exact same logic Republicans apply to drug offenders and Internet control.

5. What?

9. Generic meaningless statement.

10. Generic meaningless statement.

You totally don't sound like a brainwashed partisan tool dude.

People don't seem to understand that Free speech is a uniquely American ideal
you don't have it in Canada; you don't have it in the UK; you certainly don't have it in Germany
Republicans are far more likely to defend free speech on principal
but I'm not pitting republicans vs democrats
My claim is that democrats should not call themselves liberals

no fly no buy is a reference to how democrats think you shouldn't have due process if you are on a terrorist watch list

Except that it has roots in Athenian democracy, English common law, the French Revolution and countless other societies. Stop grandstanding, Reagan lied America isn't special. And Republicans are more likely to enact decency laws, ban flag burning, ban unpatriotic themes and target private venues for blocking certain speakers, violating freedom of association.

Any claim is about a political party is only valuable by contrast and that one applies infinitely more strongly to conservatives.

They don't want people on the no fly list purchasing guns, that's different.

No modern political system has anything to do with Athenian democracy
How can the Constitution have roots in the French Revolution when it was just in its infancy at the time?
He didn't mention Reagan
Every country has some sort of standards for decency
no one wants to ban flag burning. Judicial Precedence is pretty clear on that
Ban unpatriotic themes? When did they do this?
violating freedom of association? Just making shit up at this point
The no fly list is arbitrary. You can't deprive someone of a right just by putting them on a list. Its reasonable to require probable cause or a court order

The French revolution was largely inspired by the American revolution and took many elements from it, not the other way around.

Hard to for the American Revolution to be inspired by an event that came after it.

Not really? If anything it shows further exceptionalism as the French revolution was heavily perverted and very quickly taken over by radicals and eventually led to the rise of Napoleon, while the American revolution managed to stay fairly stable throughout its earlier years comparably.

Many elements of the constitution may have been built upon previous nations and their furthering of democratic values, but no nation ever claimed that rights were inherently built into every individual, and not granted to them by the state. No other nation claimed that it's power originated entirely from its own people, and that the state itself was derived from the populace, as wasn't its powers.


And Europe's "free speech" is a joke compared to America's. Even the whole concept of hate speech is considered a joke outside of liberal controlled areas like university campuses.

name one other society that has it to the extent that America has it
I don't give a shit about Reagan
a lot of decency laws are struck down by the courts due to free speech
Clinton is actually very much in favor of a flag burning law

>ban unpatriotic themes
what?
>target private venues for blocking certain speakers
only when they promise free speech and people go to them based on those promises so it falls under contract law. Private universities are a good example.
>violating freedom of association.
the entire democrat platform on race and lgbtkeysmash issues is the textbook example of violating free association

it is not different. The no fly list is at the complete discretion of the government. Anyone can be put on for any reason without due process. There is absolutely no justification for people to lose the constitutional rights on a whim. If you honestly defend this, you prove my point.

Pretty much every first world country has comparable free speech laws, America has broad restrictions on modesty other countries have more specific ones on hate speech.
You seem to pretty unironically believe murica fuck yeah.
Clinton is an idiot.

Should have said protest, although Republicans routinely attack wartime protesters.
Or any venue really, when Ducks Dynasty got taken off A&E due to the main guys views on homosexuality conservatives were crying censorship pretty hard. You also don't seem to get free speech policies at all. They don't guarantee access to campus resources and don't apply to non students.
So freedom of association only counts when it's about banning gays?

So only liberals support the no fly list? Do you think liberal means "person I don't like"?

There's been a big push recently to nullify due process with these no fly lists, terror watch lists, etc. If they find a way to get around due process, you'll have to petition the government for your rights.

These are scary times when you look at this, the backlash from Brexit and resulting economic issues which would have been inevitable regardless of the vote result in my opinion , and the continual migrant crisis. The next ten years look volatile indeed.
