United States Government Sucks

THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT IS RIGGED FOR REPUBLICAN MINORITY RULE

  • The Electoral College allowed two unpopular Republican candidates who received the least votes in 2 elections since 2000 to become President; George W. Bush who lost by almost 600,000 votes in the 2000 election and Donald Trump who lost by 2.84 million in 2016.
  • “The rise of minority rule in America is now unmistakable,” said Laurence Tribe, a constitutional law professor at Harvard University. “Especially with a sitting president who won a majority in the electoral college in 2016 while receiving roughly 3 million fewer votes than his opponent
  • Republicans lost the popular vote in all but one of the last seven presidential elections, but have appointed 5 of the last 7 “Justices” to the Supreme Court.
  • Senate Rigged for Republicans. In 2018, Democrats received almost 12 million more votes than Republicans in Senate races yet suffered losses and failed to win a majority of seats. Because each state gets two senators irrespective of population, states such as Wyoming have as many seats as California, despite the latter having more than 60 times the population. Smaller states also tend to be the more rural and Republican. So the majority is not receiving equal representation in the Senate. The fact that Republican Mitch McConnell is the “Majority Leader”when he actually represents the Minority is an outrage and another example of what a mess our government is.
  • According to 2018 Census Bureau estimates, more than half of the US population lives in just nine states but is represented by only 18 Senators. Less than half of the population controls about 82 percent of the Senate.

This isn’t Democracy, it’s the type of Rigged Government you find in Dictator Banana Republics… where UN-Democratic minority rule prevails.

 

Neither of these incompetent idiots should have been president. The damage they caused will last for generations. The majority of Americans judgement proved to be RIGHT by not voting for them, and voting for their opponents.

The Electoral College Should Have Been Abolished Decades Ago

The Electoral College which dates back to the 1787 Constitutional Convention was flawed from the beginning. It’s antiquated, undemocratic and SHOULD have been abolished decades ago.

 

If we had a REAL democracy, the person who gets the most votes would be the winner. In every other country which has a democracy on this planet, the person who receives the most votes is the winner.

The fact that we don’t elect our president by the most votes proves there is NO REAL DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES.

 

And speaking of Democracy, the United States ranks #25th!

The Electoral College is one of the reasons why the United States ranks #25th as a Flawed Democracy. The fault is 100% Republicans because they refuse to eliminate the Electoral College and fix the Senate so each state has representation proportional to it’s population.

If it weren’t for the UN-Democratic Electoral College and Republicans Rigging Elections by Gerrymandering, Voter Obstruction, Voter Purges, etc we wouldn’t have had incompetent idiots like Bush & Trump as President, Republicans in charge of our Government, and all of the “conservative” Federal Judges they installed which do not represent the values of the American Majority.

This is another example of how Republicans are Authoritarians who refuse to change the RIGGED UN-Democratic system which exists now, because they couldn’t win unless the United States Government continues to be RIGGED for THEM.

 

2000 ELECTION RIGGED

In the 2000 election, Jeb Bush promised to “Deliver Florida” to his brother as reported in numerous newspaper articles.

Secretary of State, Katherine Harris and Governor Jeb Bush had the motive and the means to make sure Florida’s decisive electoral votes were “delivered” to George W. Bush.

They accomplished this by illegally purging thousands of black voters off of the Florida voter rolls, ensuring an unfair advantage to George W. Bush, as shown in the above video.

 

Antonin Scalia and his conservative majority of 5 “justices” subverted democracy & engaged in partisan politics by stopping the 2000 election vote count. The above video explains the shocking details.

This caused George W. Bush to be installed as President. At the time the votes were stopped by the Supreme Court, there were only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush.

With only 154 votes separating Al Gore from George W. Bush, it’s easy to see how thousands of black voters being purged off of the Florida voter rolls rigged the election for Bush.

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights conducted an extensive public investigation of allegations of voting irregularities during the 2000 presidential election in Florida and recommended that the U.S. Department of Justice should “immediately initiate the litigation process against the governor” (Jeb Bush). Here’s a link to the report http://www.usccr.gov/pubs/vote2000/report/ch9.htm

The Theft of an election and installation of an illegitimate president is the one of worst possible crimes which a government could commit against it’s citizens… yet that is what our government perpetrated against the citizens of the United States, and NOTHING has been done about it.

The rigged election of George W. Bush caused the following events;

  • Installation of George W. Bush, a illegitimate president who was not elected to office by the American people
  • False claims about Weapons of Mass Destruction to justify the War against Iraq
  • Unprovoked, Unjustified War and Invasion of Iraq
  • Deaths of 4,475 US Troops
  • 32,331 US Troops wounded
  • Deaths of over 112,000 Iraqi Civilians
  • Debt of 10 Trillion dollars due to tax cuts and unpaid for wars
  • Firing of US Attorneys for political reasons
  • Appointment of Conservative Supreme Court Judges who destroyed the voting rights act of 1965
  • The creation of ISIS due to the invasion of Iraq, be-headings and people being burned alive
  • And much more…

None of these things would have happened were it not for the Jeb Bush Administration actions which helped brother George W. Bush to be installed as president.

 

Illegitimate President Bush is guilty of War Crimes by attacking Iraq, a country which had nothing to do with 9/11 or attacking the United States. He caused the deaths of over 4,000 American Troops and over 112,000 Iraqi civilians and nothing has been done about it.

If we had a REAL Democracy, George W. Bush would NOT have been President because Gore received almost 600,000 more votes than Bush.

 

2004 ELECTION RIGGED

Harvey Wasserman and Robert J. Fitrakis, who wrote a book “What Happened in Ohio: A Documentary Record of Theft And Fraud in the 2004 Election”, explained that the combination of computer hacking, ballot destruction, and the discrepancy between exit polling (which showed a big Kerry win in Ohio) and the “real” vote tabulation, all point to one answer: the Republicans stole the 2004 election.

“A 6.7% shift in exit polls does not happen by chance. So we have irrefutable confirmation that what we were saying was true and that every piece of the puzzle in the Ohio 2004 election was flawed,” Wasserman said.

 

The Above video shows how Ohio Election Computers were hacked and how the man who oversaw the operation died mysteriously in a plane crash soon after giving a deposition.

 

DISENFRANCHISEMENT OF VOTERS

To this very day, Republicans continue to pass laws which make it difficult for Minorities, Young People, the Elderly and Women to Vote. A Judge who has been voting for 49 years couldn’t vote in her own courthouse where everyone knew her because of repressive Republican Voter ID Laws in Texas.

 

REPUBLICAN RIGGING ELECTIONS BY GERRYMANDERING

Most Americans have never heard of Gerrymandering and are unaware that Republicans has rigged elections in their favor for years to come through gerrymandering.

Through Gerrymandering, Republicans has made it almost impossible to be removed from office in some districts. Since they feel safe from being removed from office, they have no motivation to compromise. They are pursuing radical right wing agendas such as cutting assistance to the poor, cutting planned parenthood funding and passing anti-aborting “War on Women” legislation when the majority of Americans do not support these actions.

how-to-steel-an-election

Republicans are destroying democracy by Gerrymandering districts. As you can see from the graph above, a disproportionate number of Republicans were “elected” in relation to votes cast.

This is something you would expect in a Banana Dictator Republic, not the United States of America.

CONGRESS IS A DYSFUNCTIONAL MESS

Elizabeth Warren points out how it took 100 years to pass a bill to make Lynching a Federal Crime. The bill was first introduced in 1918.

 

The roots of America’s democracy problem

 

The Senate Is Rigged for Republicans

The Senate does not represent the Majority and is rigged for Republicans because Red States like Wyoming which has a small population get as much say a California or New York, with huge populations.

According to 2018 Census Bureau estimates, more than half of the US population lives in just nine states. That means that much of the nation is represented by only 18 senators. Less than half of the population controls about 82 percent of the Senate.

This is UNEQUAL Representation and another reason why the United States Ranks 25th as a “Flawed Democracy”.

 

Mitch McConnell Has Destroyed the Senate

It’s an outrage that Mitch McConnell is the “Majority Leader” when in fact, he represents the “Minority” of Americans in this country. It’s an outrage how much control he has over everything and how he constantly blocks what the Majority of Americans want.

 

The above chart shows some of the legislation Democrats has passed in the House since taking over in 2018. Mitch McConnell has blocked every single one of these, so when Trump says “Do Nothing Democrats“… it’s another LIE added to his over 16,000 lies, false and misleading statements.

Republicans are the ones who “DO NOTHING”. They are the “Party of NO” blocking everything the Majority wants, thanks to our F***ED UP Government which allows them to legally get away with it.

 

TRUMP IS THE ONE WHO DOES NOTHING BUT GOLF, WATCH TV, EAT HAMBURGERS AND POST MEAN TWEETS

Axios managed to get a copy of Trump’s official schedule and you can see that the majority of his time is allocated to “Executive time”.

Per an article at; thegolfnewsnet.com/golfnewsnetteam/2020/11/15/how-many-times-president-donald-trump-played-golf-in-office-103836/

“Since taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses or played golf elsewhere 296 times since becoming President, and that’s as of Nov. 15, 2020.

The cost of Trump’s golf rounds to the American taxpayer varies by round and course, but it has totaled so far in the tens of millions of dollars. The Secret Service has spent at least $550,000 in third-party golf cart rentals and over $500,000 to stay overnight at Trump-owned properties, including his New Jersey country club.

He previously was on pace to visit his golf clubs more than 650 times in an eight-year presidency. However, his pace as of Aug. 6, 2018 now indicates Trump would spend as much as 745 days of his presidency at a golf course if he wins a second term and serves both terms to completion.

Trump ended 2017 with 91 golf course visits and was just shy of 100 visits in Year 1 as President. In his second year as President, Trump played golf 76 times.

Trump has spent nearly 22 percent of his days in office at one of his golf properties for some portion of the day. There have been days where Trump has visited one of his golf clubs and not played golf. He made a 40-minute visit to his Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., and he has made a three-day visit to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., to watch the 2017 US Women’s Open, unfolding at that club. Trump spent a 17-day “working vacation” at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., in August, which meant all of those days count as days on his golf courses, even though he didn’t necessarily play golf on all of those days”.

 

In a LEGITIMATE Democracy, the President and all of his appointments should represent the will of the Majority. That’s not happening in the United States due to Republicans.

 

Republicans have hijacked the highest court in the land. First, they stole a Supreme Court seat from President Obama. Then, they changed a 70-year old rule to install two of Donald Trump’s far-right justices and confirmed Brett Kavanaugh despite credible allegations that he committed sexual assault and lied under oath.

Now, the politicized Supreme Court is enacting a far-right, partisan agenda that favors corporate interests and Republican Party special interests. Reproductive freedom, civil rights, environmental justice, common sense gun safety laws, and our right to vote are all at risk. And the Court is eroding confidence in our system of government with ethical lapses and lack of transparency.

Republicans lost the popular vote in all but one of the last seven presidential elections. But they have appointed five of the last six picks to the Supreme Court, based on the support of GOP senators who represent less than half the American people.

More people voted for Democrat Gore & Clinton so the “Will of the People” has been violated by the appointment of Conservative Justices, a fact you never hear discussed.

The MAJORITY voted for Al Gore in 2000 by over 500,000 votes yet George W. Bush was crammed down the American Majority’s Throats. The election was STOLEN by the Electoral College, PLUS Florida Republicans illegally purged thousands of minorities off voters rolls and vote counting was stopped by the Republican Majority Supreme Court.

The installation of George W. Bush caused the deaths of thousands of Americans and Iraqis due to the misguided and unjustified war with Iraq. Trillions was added to the National Debt due to George W. Bush’s incompetence.

Bush appointed 2 Justices against the will of the MAJORITY = 2 Supreme Court Seats Stolen.

 

When Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away, his seat SHOULD have been filed by President Obama who was president at that time, and had the support of the MAJORITY of Americans who elected him to office.

Republicans STOLE Obama’s Supreme Court Seat from the American Majority (3rd stolen) by blocking his Supreme Court appointment stating “The people should decide” during an election year.

 

The fact the Republicans were able to keep this seat open for almost a year until a Republican (Trump) became president (who LOST by almost 3 millions votes) is an OUTRAGE and more proof of what a F***ED-UP mess our Government is, and how ROTTEN & UN-Democratic Republicans are.

 

Trump, who LOST the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, filled Obama’s Supreme Court Seat with Brett Kavanaugh against the will of the majority.

Republican Bush’s two (2) appointments and Trump’s three (3) equals a total of FIVE Justices which should have been Liberal instead of Conservative. Five Liberal Justices would have given the Supreme Court a overwhelming Liberal Majority.

The MAJORITY is NOT Conservative and does not support BACKWARD, REPRESSIVE, CONSERVATIVE, 1800’s ideologies and values.

THE MAJORITY IS FED UP WITH MINORITY RULE!

 

After Ruth Ginsburg died Republicans totally went back on their word about “filling a Supreme Court Seat during and election year” and proved to be PARTISAN HYPOCRITES by committing to fill her seat weeks before the 2020 election with Conservative Supreme Court nominee Amy Barrett  SOLELY because she’s expected to rule against Roe V. Wade & “Affordable Healthcare”.

This is the 5th seat Stolen from the American Majority.

Appointing & confirming “Justices” because they are expected to rule on issues a particular way is not justice… it’s a BANANA REPUBLIC RIGGED KANGAROO COURT

REPUBLICANS RESPONSIBLE FOR DEFICITS AND DEBTS

Republicans accuse Democrats of being fiscally irresponsible. But time and again, it’s the Democrats who are forced to clean up the economic messes they inherit from Republicans. Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich breaks down how the next Democratic administration will have to deal with the consequences of the GOP’s tax cut for the rich and the soaring debt and deficit that followed — in order to preserve and expand Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

 

Inventor Of Reagan Trickle Down Economics Says Trump’s Tax Plan Is A Giveaway to the Wealthy

David Stockman, the economist who developed the theory of trickle down economics during the Reagan administration, says that Trump’s tax plan is a giveaway to the wealthy elite and that it will result in an economic downturn. Stockman has admitted that his theory of trickle down economics is implausible, and he regrets the damage that his policy has caused this country.

 

Trump Tax Cuts Add WAY More Debt Than Advertised

“Experts” low-balled the amount of debt the Republican tax plan would entail.

 

Democrat Bill Clinton left office with the United States having a huge SURPLUS. Republican, George W. Bush squandered that surplus and turned it into a 9 Trillion Dollar Debt.

 

 

UNITED STATES WASTING TRILLIONS ON THE MILITARY

Since 2001, the United States has been spending 900 Million a week in Afghanistan. Republicans has no problem spending trillions on the military, bombs and wars, but they want to cut programs like food stamps, medicare, social security, etc which benefits regular Americans and the poor.

As shown in the above graph, the United States spends more on the military than Russia, China, the UK and 11 more countries COMBINED.

Republicans “conservative” ideologies, values and thinking is rooted in the past. The same is true with their ideas about our military.

We don’t need more Bombs, Ships, Planes or any of the ridiculous Military items Republicans has no problem wasting tax payer’s money on. Because most countries have nuclear weapons, “mutually assured destruction” makes most of the items used by the military in the 20th century obsolete.

 

As we saw on January 6, 2021, fueled by LIES and Misinformation from Trump, his enablers and Right-Wing Media, MAGA Terrorists Rioters stormed the House & Senate chambers, wrecking havoc and destruction in the United States Capital.

We need to scale the size of our military down considerably, mind our own business and use our military of the defense of this country, ONLY.

Cyber & National Security should be our top priority.

 

Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

Republicans never say a word about Billions in Military Waste and don’t seem to give a damn. They keep giving MORE money to the Military to WASTE while giving Tax Breaks to the Rich, increasing the Nation Debt to over 20 Trillion Dollars… the highest it’s ever been.

 

Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Grills Military Contractor for Wasting Tax Dollars (June 3, 2019)

Unlike Republicans, who don’t give a damn about taxpayer money being wasted, Democrats DO CARE and try to hold Government Money Wasters accountable.

 

Eisenhower’s Warning: Military Industrial Complex’s Growing Budget

After World War II, we should have brought all of our troops home and scaled down our military. The United States should have heeded the advise and warning of President Dwight Eisenhower about the “Military Complex”

Our military should be used for the DEFENSE of this country only and unless we are attacked, all troops should be brought home… no using our troops to police the world.

United States military spending has ballooned since World War II, although Americans have historically been reluctant to go to war.

George Washington, in his Farewell Address stated why the United States should pursue a policy of isolationism:

“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. Europe has a set of primary interests, which to us have none, or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves, by artificial ties, in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.”.

If we minded our own business like Switzerland we would be liked a lot better by people all over the world. There would have been no Vietnam, no 9/11, no Iraq and no Afghanistan.

If it weren’t for the trillions of dollars wasted on the military and trillions spent on past failed wars such as Viet-Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan and others… plus ridiculous Republican “Tax breaks for the Rich” we wouldn’t be 20+ Trillion Dollars in debt. There would also be PLENTY of money for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Healthcare and our crumbling infrastructure.

 

The above is an excellent example of how the US lags behind other countries, because of Republican’s “Tax Breaks for the Rich” and Wasteful Military Spending causing us to be over 20 Trillion in debt. They use the debt they’re responsible for creating as an excuse why we can’t afford Stimulus Relief (like other countries).

 

US GOVERNMENT SPYING ON IT’S OWN CITIZENS

NSA Spying Program Exposed by Edward Snowden

 

Everything you need to know about PRISM

A cheat sheet for the NSA’s unprecedented surveillance programs Since September 11th, 2001, the United States government has dramatically increased the ability of its intelligence agencies to collect and investigate information on both foreign subjects and US citizens.

NSA PRISM Spying on Americans started during the BUSH Administration

Per the above article; “Since September 11th, 2001, the United States government has dramatically increased the ability of its intelligence agencies to collect and investigate information on both foreign subjects and US citizens. Some of these surveillance programs, including a secret program called PRISM, capture the private data of citizens who are not suspected of any connection to terrorism or any wrongdoing”.

 

UNITED STATES UNJUSTIFIED WARS AND INTERFERENCE IN OTHER COUNTRIES AFFAIRS

The US has been interfering in other countries business for years and is constantly at war. Examples include…

  • Shah of Iran coup d’état. In spring and summer 1953, the United States, through a covert operation of the CIA called Operation Ajax, conducted from the American Embassy in Tehran, helped organize a coup d’état to overthrow the Mossadeq government. The United States CIA organized the coup which put the brutal Dictator “Shah of Iran” in power. This is why students held personnel from the United States Embassy hostage for over a year. It was retaliation for the wrongs the United States did to their country.
  • The Vietnam War which cost the lives of over 60,000 of our Troops and over 100,000 Vietnamese. In the end, nothing was accomplished and our Troops died for NOTHING. Massacres in Vietnam such as the My Lai Massacre    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Lai_Massacre
  • The 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center which cost the lives of over 3,000 U.S. Citizens was said to be retaliation by citizens of Saudi Arabia against the United States for supporting and propping up the brutal ruling family and Dictatorship,”House of Saud” in exchange for Oil.
  • Over 100,000 Iraqi citizens killed by the US Government when Iraq had done nothing to deserve being attacked and invaded by the United States. NONE of the 9/11 attackers came from Iraq

 

US GOVERNMENT HAS ENGAGED IN CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY

a. The US Government slaughtered Indians by the thousands, stole their land and forced them to relocate. Andrew Jackson helped gain Congressional passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which authorized the US Government to extinguish Native American title to lands in the Southeast. Details here…

b. The US Government sanctioned & made slavery legal for many years.

c. Executions by the Electric Chair

Thomas Edison was a conservative and he was one of the most prominent people who recommended using the Electric Chair. In fact, a couple of his associates “invented” it. He knew AC current was dangerous and preferred to use DC current for that very reason. He and his associates electrocuted animals in public to prove to the public how dangerous AC current was.

August 6, 1890 the United States sanctioned the first Death Penalty by the Electric Chair. George Westinghouse comment about the first Electric Chair execution; “they would have done better using an axe,”and a witnessing reporter claimed that it was “an awful spectacle, far worse than hanging.” Details at – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_chair

Electrocution is legalized torture and painful beyond description.

Since the late 1880’s and until about 2008, the Electric Chair was used to execute condemned people. The United States was the first country to use such a horrendous method to kill people and is one of the very few countries to use such a horribly barbaric method.

This is the most painful way to die imaginable… being burned alive. There have been debates that death by electrocution may even kill the condemned person’s soul since the brain uses minute electric impulses. It could even cause someone to suffer through eternity for all we know.

It is important to remember that since our justice system is flawed, many innocent people have been tortured to death by this unspeakably painful method.

Despite the horror of Death by Electrocution, a heartless Florida State Republican Representative, Brad Drake from Eucheeanna in North Florida, sponsored a bill in 2011 to eliminate lethal injection and bring back what he called “Old Sparky” – the electric chair.

www.wisconsingazette.com | Progressive. Alternative

Mixed clouds and sun with scattered thunderstorms. A few storms may be severe. High 86F. Winds SSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 60%..

“And if that doesn’t suit the criminal, then we will provide them a .45 caliber lead cocktail instead,” Drake said in a press release.

That should come as no surprise since Republican / conservatives are by nature cold-hearted and heartless.

Even though it was clear that using electrocution was inhumane, cruel & unusual punishment, this horrible method of execution has continued for over 100 years and was recently re-instated by Republican Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam – Details here…

The fact that it wasn’t outlawed and used for over 100 years proves what irresponsible, heartless idiots we have had running this country. They didn’t give a DAMN as long is it wasn’t THEM.

Mistakes are made and many an innocent person has been wrongly convicted of a crime and put to death.

Many people feel it is justifiable to use the most painful methods available to execute a convicted murderer. People who feel that way should consider how they would like being electrocuted and how they would feel if their Mother, Dad, Son, Daughter, Brother or Sister were to die in the Electric Chair.

The Electric Chair should be abolished and made illegal once and for all.

 

TRUMP IS RACING TO BRING BACK FIRING-SQUAD EXECUTIONS BEFORE HE LEAVES OFFICE, SAYS REPORT

Trump loosens US execution rules, allowing poison gas, firing squads | DW | 28.11.2020

US President Donald Trump is paving the way for additional methods of executing prisoners who have been sentenced to death in the United States, according to new government documents. The US Justice Department has amended the rules on federal executions, which would allow death by firing squads or poison gas, according to a document published in the Federal Register on Friday.

As of November 28, 2020 with days to go until the end of Trump’s Dictatorial Rein of Terror… “The Justice Department is quietly amending its execution protocols, no longer requiring federal death sentences to be carried out by lethal injection and clearing the way to use other methods like firing squads and poison gas.

The amended rule, published Friday in the Federal Register, allows the U.S. government to conduct executions by lethal injection or use “any other manner prescribed by the law of the state in which the sentence was imposed.” A number of states allow other methods of execution, including electrocution, inhaling nitrogen gas or death by firing squad.

It remains unclear whether the Justice Department will seek to use any methods other than lethal injection for executions in the future. The rule – which goes into effect on Dec. 24 – comes as the Justice Department has scheduled five executions during the lame-duck period, including three just days before President-elect Joe Biden takes office”.

Another example of what HEARTLESS BASTARDS Republicans are that they intend to reinstate some of the most barbaric methods of executions ever devised.

 

At the 2020 RNC Convention, Kimberly Guilfoyle was Screaming  about “The Best is yet to Come” if Trump was re-elected. If bringing back firing squads and electrocutions is part of Trump’s “Best”, I’d hate to see how much worse things would have gotten. Thank God this lunatic was voted out!

If we had a real democracy, Trump wouldn’t have been President in the first place.

 

MOST HORRENDOUS ACTS OF “MANS INHUMANITY TO MAN” HAS BEEN PERPETRATED BY CONSERVATIVES

Some of the most horrendous acts of “Mans inhumanity to Man” has been perpetrated by “conservatives”. According to Wikipedia, “in 1933, with the support of more traditional right-wing conservatives, Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and the Nazis gradually established a one-party totalitarian state, under which Jews, political opponents and other “undesirable” elements were marginalized, harassed, imprisoned and eventually exterminated.

Under Hitler, over 6 Million Jews were demonized, discriminated against, then rounded up and executed. This is just one example of “Mans inhumanity to Man” which was committed by CONSERVATIVE RIGHT-WING RADICALS.

 

LACK OF EQUAL JUSTICE AND REPRESENTATION IN CIVIL CASES IN THE UNITED STATES COURTS

If your poor and need a lawyer in the United States in a civil case such as lawsuits, child custody, divorces, getting out of an abusive relationship etc, your screwed. Most attorneys demand $250 just to talk with them for one hour. Then the costs can be $200 per hour and up. Most people don’t have that kind of money.

Making Justice Equal – Center for American Progress

Download the PDF here. Access to justice is now more critical than ever. In the United States, Americans need a lawyer’s help for everything from avoiding an unjust eviction to preventing a wrongful conviction. Yet, effective legal assistance remains out of reach for the majority of Americans.

Per the above article; “In the United States, Americans need a lawyer’s help for everything from avoiding an unjust eviction to preventing a wrongful conviction. Yet, effective legal assistance remains out of reach for the majority of Americans. The gap between legal needs and the services available exacerbates systemic inequities and disadvantages that will only grow.

Unlike criminal defendants, parties in civil cases do not have a generalized right to counsel. While all states provide a right to counsel for at least a few types of civil cases, most parties in civil cases that involve high stakes and basic human needs, such as housing, do not have a right to representation.

In more than three-fourths of all civil trial cases in the United States, at least one litigant does not have a lawyer. Figures are even starker when it comes to family law, domestic violence, housing, and small-claims matters—those involving disputes over amounts up to $25,000, depending on the state. At least one party lacks representation in 70 to 98 percent of these cases.

And these are just the Americans who make it to court. Without access to legal advice, many are unaware of their legal rights and potential claims. Past estimates and more recent state-by-state studies suggest that about 80 percent of the civil legal needs of those living in poverty go unmet6 as well as 40 to 60 percent of the needs of middle-income Americans. But because these figures depend upon self-selection and self-reporting, however, and because many Americans do not identify their unmet legal needs as such, it is impossible to estimate Americans’ total unmet legal needs.8

To deny Americans access to legal assistance is to deny them their rights and protections. This is because, to a greater degree than other countries, the United States places the burden on an individual to seek justice by going to court. Other developed democracies have enshrined the right to counsel in civil cases and devote 3 to 10 times more funding to civil legal aid than the United States. The result is a divide between those who can afford legal assistance and those who cannot.

 

OUR COURT SYSTEM IS SERIOUSLY BROKEN

We have a court system which doles out harsh prison sentences for drug offenses, allows murders to be found innocent and finds innocent people guilty.

Many people think of the United States as the “Land of the free” when in fact, the US incarcerates more people than any other country in the world… even more than China.

With more people being incarcerated in the US than any other country on earth, the US ought to be called “The Land of the Imprisoned”.

Privately run prisons have become cash-cow enterprises in which there are financial incentives to incarcerate as many people as possible. There have been cases in which judges got kick-backs for incarcerating teenagers (more examples). Privately run prisons is an example of Capitalism and our Justice System gone amuck.

 

REPUBLICAN BACKED LAW TO PUT PEOPLE IN PRISON FOR DMCA COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS

Remember SOPA & PIPA from 2012? It’s back, only WORSE.

#stopDMCA is trending on twitter as internet users express outrage over REPUBLICAN Senator Thom Tillis trying to ram through a Felony Streaming Bill Into the must-approve government spending omnibus bill that could potentially put people in Prison over a copyright offense.

 

Thom Tillis’ bill would make streaming copyrighted music a felony crime, which would translate to jail time in cases where that applies. The potential bill would have a lot of bad implications for the content and gaming world. YouTube would also certainly face new DMCA issues.

Thom Tillis’ bill would make streaming copyrighted music a felony crime, which would translate to jail time in cases where that applies. The potential bill would have a lot of bad implications for the content and gaming world. YouTube would also certainly face new DMCA issues.

Tillis motive for doing this? News reports indicate Tillis’ campaign and leadership PAC received over $100,000 in donations from PACs affiliated with the Motion Picture Association, Sony Pictures, ASCAP, Universal Music Group, Comcast & NBCUniversal, The Internet and Television Association, Salem Media Group, Warner Music, and others in the entertainment and cable industry to ram this bill through during the third and fourth quarters of 2020.

This is Political Corporate “WHORE-ISM” at its Worst

We’ve been hearing politicians talk about the need for Criminal Justice Reform for years due to having the largest prison population in the entire world.

THE PUNISHMENT SHOULD FIT THE CRIME. DMCA / COPYRIGHT VIOLATIONS WITH PRISON SENTENCES DOES NOT

DMCA / Copyright violations SHOULD be a civil matter, NOT criminal.

This is a prime example why we have the largest prison population in the world… people being imprisoned for PETTY, ridiculous infractions, and another reason of why most Millennials will NEVER vote for Republicans.

Senator Thom Tillis wants to put anyone in Prison who makes a DMCA mistake, but refused to vote to remove the most LAWLESS President who ever sat in the Oval Office. What a Hypocrite!

 

UNITED STATES… LAND OF OPPRESSION, DISCRIMINATION AND ABUSE

The US is also the “Land of the Oppression, Discrimination and Abuse”. Police brutality in the US – in 90 seconds.

 

Video shows police in Buffalo, NY shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground. A pool of blood can be seen near his head while he lies  unconscious. Cops walk away, refusing to give him assistance.

 

Cop pulled his gun on a student who was picking up trash in front of his dorm.

 

Remember how Trump said “Get that SOB off the field… YOUR FIRED!” in response to NFL players who opted to “take a knee”?

 

LEGALIZED TORTURE IN MASSACHUSETTS

For 40 years disabled and autistic people have been subjected to Eletro-Shock TORTURE at Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton, MA.

The United Nations Special Rapporteur on torture condemned the Judge Rotenberg Center and determined that the rights of the center’s students who were subjected to electric shock and physical means of restraints had been “violated under the UN Convention against Torture.

Since at least 2012, there have been numerous complaints filed, articles, news segments, videos, petitions and demonstrations demanding Eletro-Shock TORTURE be banned at Judge Rotenberg Center.

It wasn’t until March 9, 2020 that the FDA Banned Shock Device Used On Patients At Judge Rotenberg Center In Canton

FDA Bans Shock Device Used On Patients At Judge Rotenberg Center In Canton

WASHINGTON (AP) – Federal officials on Wednesday banned electrical shock devices used to discourage aggressive, self-harming behavior in patients with mental disabilities. The announcement from the Food and Drug Administration follows years of pressure from disability rights groups and mental health experts who have called the treatment outdated, ineffective and unethical.

 

IMMIGRANT CHILDREN BEING TAKEN FROM PARENTS AT U.S. BORDER

Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families during a six-week period in April and May 2018, as the Trump Administration cracked down on illegal immigration with a “zero-tolerance” policy of separating families at the border.

 

Despite claims that Separating Families is UN-American, history shows America has a long history of separating families

 

REPUBLICAN DISCRIMINATION LAWS AGAINST GAYS / LGBT

Republicans in Red states such as Arizona, Indiana, North Carolina and Mississippi have passed laws discriminating against Gays / LGBT. Laws of this type are inhumane and should be illegal.

 

LEGISLATIVE BRANCHES OF THE US GOVERNMENT IS A MESS

There should be term limits for every elected office. “Public Service” was never intended to be a lifetime career by our founding fathers.

 

FBI, ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE AND OTHER LAW AND INVESTIGATIVE OFFICES SHOULD NOT BE UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE PRESIDENT

Trump firing FBI Director Jame Comey is a classic example of why the FBI and other Law enforcement & investigative divisions should not be under the control of the President. This should have been fixed after Watergate when Nixon fired the special prosecutor Archibald Cox. The fact that this hasn’t been fixed is more proof of what inept, stupid, irresponsible people we have running the US Government and how it is unlikely anything will change in the future.

 

NO LIFETIME SUPREME COURT APPOINTMENTS

Five (5) Supreme court seats were stolen by corrupt and lawless Republicans. These seats were SUPPOSED to reflect the will of the people but didn’t because of the 2000 election being stolen by Bush (2 seats lost), Republicans blocking President Obama’s appointment to replace Antonin Scalia’s seat and Trump filling Obama’s plus 2 more seats even though he LOST by almost 3 millions votes.

It’s Time to Retire Lifetime Appointments for Supreme Court Justices

When Supreme Court justices enter a room, you can feel the air change. I first noticed this two years ago at the State of the Union address from my perch in the elbow-to-elbow press balcony above the House gallery.

As stated in the above article, there’s nothing in the Constitution that explicitly promises federal judges “lifetime appointments.” The language of Article III says justices “shall hold their Offices during good Behavior,”.

The Constitution was written at a time when it was inconceivable that someone would live long enough be a Supreme Court Justice for 30-plus years.

“The people who created the Constitution of the United States in the 18th century lived in a very different world than we live in,” said Michael Sappol, a historian and author of A Traffic of Dead Bodies, a book about death and social identity. “The idea that judges would get life appointments had a different kind of meaning then than it does now.”

As more Americans live longer, institutions like the Supreme Court are undergoing profound change. In other words, a lifetime isn’t what it used to be. And plenty of people have argued that the highest court in the land ought to be subject to some of the restrictions that lower-level U.S. courts and top courts in other countries already have in place. “Every place else in the world they have age limits or term limits,” says Paul Carrington, a law professor at Duke University.

The five most recently retired Supreme Court justices averaged more than 25 years apiece on the bench. That’s nearly triple the nine-year average tenure of the court’s first five justices.

A Supreme Court Justice term should be for no longer than 8 years. Anyone appointed should non-political and not affiliated with any political party.

 

THE US GOVERNMENT IS BLOATED AND WASTES MONEY

The number of agencies contained in the United States Federal Government is mind boggling. Here’s a list of US Government Agencies.

It seems to me that at least 1/2 could be closed. If we were to stop wasting money on these agencies and cut military spending by at least 3/4, there would be a lot more money to help the poor & homeless in this country.

This graph shows why military spending in the U.S. is out of control and must be cut substantially. Cyber security should be our top priority in the 21th century.

 

IRS SHOULD BE ELIMINATED

The IRS should be eliminated. If we would close at least 1/2 of US Government Agencies, cut the Military budget by 1/2, use a sale tax or funding from States to fund the federal government, we would no longer need the IRS.

The US Government is bloated and major cuts need to me made.

 

POLITICAL PARTIES SHOULD BE ABOLISHED

Having political parties polarizes and divides this country and it is leading to our destruction – “United we Stand… Divided we Fall“.

We are incredibly divided thanks to political parties.

Each person who runs for any office should run as an American citizen. Eliminating political parties would make those who serve accountable only to the citizens they represent. No more Billionaires, lobbyists and special interest buying elections.

 

US GOVERNMENT RESPONSIBLE FOR 22 YEAR OLD COLLEGE STUDENT, OTTO WARMBIER’S DEATH

It has been known for at least 70 years that North Korea engages in human rights abuses, torture and murder. It is therefore irresponsible of the United States Government to allow it’s citizen to travel to North Korea.

Otto Warmbier’s death could have been prevented if there had been a Travel Ban to North Korea, therefore the US Government is Responsible for his death.

 

KING: Here’s why the United States is not the best country in the world

The Fourth of July is a complicated holiday for African-Americans. We love the food, family and even the fireworks, but the actual history and rationale behind the holiday have never sat well with us. It’s why Frederick Douglass, on July 5, 1852, gave the rousing speech in which he questioned the very soul of a nation willing to celebrate independence while simultaneously enslaving millions.

It’s not just me who feels the US Government Sucks… there are other articles which point out some of the issues I’ve raise such as the article above “Here’s why the United States is not the best country in the world“.

 

America’s democracy is failing. Here’s why.

Let’s start with a plausible scenario that could play out in the 2020 election. Democrats win the popular vote by an even wider margin than Hillary Clinton’s nearly 3 million vote lead in 2016, running up the score in solid blue states and closing most of the gap in large red states like Texas.

 

Republicans rigged our democracy. Here’s how Democrats can fight back | David Faris

Donald Trump wasn’t elected because Democrats lost a policy fight in 2016. What Democrats did was lose a procedural fight that has been going on since the early 1990s, when Republicans began waging a relentless, brutal, and completely one-sided war, systematically using their lawmaking power to disadvantage their adversaries in elections and political mobilization.

 

The United States is a GREAT and BEAUTIFUL Country… but our Government SUCKS. Republicans are standing in the way of changes which are needed.
