    So, join a smaller Union, with less power and influence with nations we don't actually trade with much compared to our near neighbours?

    You mean we could keep our Sovereignty and have a veto on anything we didn't like? Just like our EU membership.

    War with these powers doesn't have to be likely, to still be a much more salient threat than it would have been, if Trump had never gone into the WH. From what the Iranian...

    You are confusing contradiction with an argument. Still failing the burden of rejoinder. But it's clear all you've got is Whining.

    Look, if the statutes don't exist, you can simply assert the fact.

    I give reasons for my view. Despite all your whining, you routinely fail the burden of rejoinder.

    Do you deny the existence of criminal statues against incitement to riot, sedition, and insurrection? Trump can be indicted on the basis of such statutes. And of course he...

    Trump is a Fascist, certainly. I didn't mean to imply that he was Conservative. By my way of taxonomizing ideologies, I would say that Conservatism dates back to the...

  12. Modus Ponens liked Golem's post in the thread 3 candidate race in 2024: Harris (D), Carlson (R) Gabbard (I). Who wins?.

    Trump is not a conservative. Trump is a fascist. However, I agree that Republicans flirted one time too many with fascists, and they took over.

  15. Modus Ponens replied to the thread 3 candidate race in 2024: Harris (D), Carlson (R) Gabbard (I). Who wins?.

    That is my working assumption. Biden would step aside sometime after the midterms, to give Harris time to run in her own right for President.

    Doesn't excuse his attempt at insurrection. And, he was impeached a second time while he was still President. The Senate is just finishing the process.

    Sorry pal, I get have an opinion in my OP. Last I checked this was a political forum. Anyway, take any excuse you like not to deal with the question.

  20. Modus Ponens replied to the thread Mitt Romney: Trump Impeachment Trial Important For 'Unity,' 'Accountability'.

    There is precedent (and logic) behind making the impeachment power extend to political figures (not just the President) who are not currently in office. Conservatives for...

    I disagree. For the next two years Harris is going to be tied to the Senate in a way most VPs never are. This will given her profile in one repsect, but it will also place...

    If Gabbard would stand up for the 2A a bit, she wins that by a record landslide, (and still likely loses to fraud). As it is, her never having met a firearm restriction she...

    True, she is no friend of the Dem Establishment (and she is alienated from the White Progressive base). But that could serve her well as a spoiler candidate.

    For Harris to have a chance, Biden needs to resign, not too long after the midterms. Carlson is the perfect successor to Trump in a Trumpified Republican party. If he starts...

    It's looking like they're going to go with a jurisdictional argument; Trump is no longer president, so he can't be put on trial.

    Biden is not going to start a war, but Trump has put the US on a trajectory for one, with China and/or Korea.
