@phicyclist Thanks for the info. And *definitely* use my own wallet! No way am I giving anyone control of my finances.
Another angle on how a loss of faith in democratic institutions could prove catastrophic for America. The author is a lot more optimistic than I am....
His presence reveals not just the sordid character of his associates and others in government, but that of many ordinary citizens.
I have said this before and it bears repeating, President Trump doesn’t cause people to lose their character, he reveals people’s character for who they truly are. And for that we should all be grateful that we can see clearly.
@NNYLiberty Nice article, almost to the end...where it proposed taking the Green New Deal seriously.
@gmcgath It's all part of identitarianism, with its goal of splitting the populace into small groups that are unable to defend themselves and too afraid and/or jealous of everyone else to band together against the tyrants.
Not all men give in to the forces that would make them monsters.
@hamdancer We're getting that treatment tomorrow--forecast: 70 today, rain+snow tomorrow, dropping into the upper 30's tomorrow afternoon, to 22 early next morning. Brrr for this part of the world.
The Sixth Amendment applies to criminal trials and has no applicability to impeachment proceedings. Trump has *NO* Sixth Amendment rights in those hearings. Calabresi is a lawyer and knows this. He is flat out lying in this article. https://dailycaller.com/2019/11/08/calabresi-trump-public-trial/

(I think executions should be very public, if we're to have them at all. But *not* as entertainment.)

Which will collapse first? The dams or the economy?
A more than two-year investigation by @AP finds that nearly 1,700 dams in the U.S. are in poor or unsatisfactory condition. And many are looming over homes, businesses, highways or entire communities. http://apne.ws/EzJZOw0

"... for an LP presidential candidate..."
"... who promised helicopter rides?"
State violence is never acceptable, and rightwing authoritarianism has a party already. If I voted, it'd have to be for a difference. I won't.
America could end up dictator vs. civil society, should those involved in the impeachment proceedings fail to respect the procedures and institutions enshrined in our Constitution. If this is correct, Civil War II may be much closer than I thought.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
