    It'd be swell if there could be a political conversation where ze Germans weren't invoked. Just once. That'd be neato.

    It somewhat pleases me to know this woman has replaced Sarah Hanson-Young, Greens Senator here in Australia as the dumbest elected official to hold public office. SHY is so stupid she thought a fake television series documented the ongoings of our water security.

    As a side note, it's mortifying that someone this stupid can be elected. I'm all for pulling representatives from all walks of life but surely there needs to be base standard of intelligence required to help run a country.

    Another Election Day over, thank God. I didn’t vote. What I DID do was go to work, do my job to the best of my ability, and bring the garbage cans in at the end of day when I got home. Had a pretty good pastrami sandwich for lunch too.

    This country has become WAY too tribal, and the fetishizing of voting isn’t helping. Politics is infesting every aspect of life. Here’s to not voting.

    Sorry, but no. It's superiority. "My power is greater through discipline and self-sacrifice so you must submit."

    No I don’t think the republic is threatened by a hostile takeover that will abolish the constitution and democracy we live under because a relative handful of people voted for a socialist.

    How do we stay competitive with the rest of the world by putting private industry in the hands of the government thereby guaranteeing it will be poorly managed.

    It’s absolutely socialist.

    With all due respect AJ, I think you're underestimating how potentially destructive a victim mindset can be. I submit that probably every vile, horrific example of violence in human history from serial killers (e.g. Carl Panzram) to mass murders (e.g. Hitler and the Nazi) was carried out by someone with a victim mindset. Socialism panders to this mindset, which is what makes it so dangerous.

    One socialist congressman isn’t the start of the socialist takeover.
    Just because vile people in history share a characteristic doesn’t mean that every society turns vile or that the characteristic is prevalent in a society or that it’s presence could ever lead to what it did under different circumstances.
    It’s like saying Castro used the military to take over Cuba, so we can’t have generals in charge of our military or they will do the same thing.

    You are literally making a mountain out of a molehill.

    Leaving aside that you guys are casually conflating Stalinism with Democratic Socialism, what do you have to back up this statement that a philosophy of monetary distribution and the government's role in that distribution 'panders' to the victim mindset.

    Or are you just pulling something out of your ass?

    I think his argument is that when the masses are impoverished (feeling like victims) they are easily coerced into ceding their rights to an authoritarian government. But he may mean something else.

    Authoritarianism is a risk for any country, methods of monetary distribution aside.

    Actually, he’s figuratively doing that (not saying that he is but figuratively is the word you were looking for). If he were literally making a mountain out of a mole hill, he would be outside pushing a lot of dirt from mole hills together in order to construct a mountain.

    You can thank Dinesh D'Souza's dumb ass for perpetuating that.

    I would suggest that pushing uninformed people to the polls to vote because someone said they should doesn't help the republic at all. After interacting with people on a daily basis I think the country would be better off if people had to take an IQ test and score at a certain level before they are allowed to vote.
