Ah yes, Andrew Jackson, the slavery owner and ethnic cleanser Trail of Tears | The Museum of the Cherokee IndianAh yes, the president donnie admires and everyone else wants to forget.
The Cherokee went to the Supreme Court again in 1831. This time they based their appeal on an 1830 Georgia law which prohibited whites from living on Indian territory after March 31, 1831, without a license from the state. The state legislature had written this law to justify removing white missionaries who were helping the Indians resist removal. The court this time decided in favor of the Cherokee. It stated that the Cherokee had the right to self-government, and declared Georgia's extension of state law over them to be unconstitutional. The state of Georgia refused to abide by the Court decision, however, and President Jackson refused to enforce the law.
Which is the problem with impeachment. The republicans might get smart and say fuck this unstable guy trump. Let's go with Pence.Trump is a symptom. Getting rid of him is a good thing because he's a volatile lunatic, but it will not solve our deeply rooted governance problems. The next GOP president could be competent, after all, and then we're well and truly screwed.
you may not want to admit there are alternatives but When people are desperate they will turn to anything.... does not matter how small, bad or how far. alittle reputation good or bad can go a long way... better then none at all. they could go to Russia and Beg if they sy no just keep going down the line... India? Australia? Iraq? it doesn't need to be perfect... it may be slow... you just keep knocking on doors til someone says yes... Shame doesn't matter as long as you get what you want.Dealing with the US is like dealing with China - you know you shouldn't but there's no alternative either.
Yes, but Pence is not as charismatic. He has zero magnetism and would be more susceptible to common scandals. Trump is Jim Jones writ large.
They will never do that, for multiple reasons, one of which is the base is solid. The other reasons have to do with Russian carrots and very serious sticks, like “we will kill your family”.
This is a fascinating (morbidly speaking) demographic right now. Farmers are deeply emotionally & financially invested in believing Trump is 1) a competent negotiator and 2) doing what is best for the country. As long as they can couch their own misfortunes as a sacrifice for the Greater Good, their misfortunes will feel justified and they will continue to support Trump despite the personal cost.Plus Midwestern farming communities that are seeing increased bankruptcies as they get caught between higher tariffs on steel and equipment driving up costs and retaliation for trade policies shrinking their market.
Are they really all that bad? Even clearly competent people like Warren, Castro or Bennet?I voted 3rd party last time. I've been screamed out and one person even suggested the 3rd party "conscience voters" should be killed because somehow it's all our fault Dump got elected making the faulty assumption that if there hadn't been a 3rd party candidate to vote for that we'd have all voted for Hillary. Speaking only for myself - if there hadn't been a 3rd party candidate to vote for and writing in wasn't an option - I would have just stayed home.
Since these are all things we won’t be able to afford, we stand a chance of eventually getting rid of them. But there’s still the option of doing it in a good way, or in a bad way.The problem with even the best candidates is they may save us for a short term but they aren't going to fix things for a couple of decades from now. That would require radical change. So we'll all be going to hell in a handbasket. I'll likely be dead by then anyway and don't have children. I'll vote for any democrat against the orange one because a few more years would be nice.
A good candidate would start by campaigning on putting big pharma, insurance and oil out of business and reducing the military by 90%. Like that will happen.
I don't know how to even respond to that Brenda. It seems to me we are a nation controlled by the very rich. Unless something is done about that then we are doomed.Since these are all things we won’t be able to afford, we stand a chance of eventually getting rid of them.
