Thanks to DJT for the thread title. White supremacist marchers, good people there. Kavanaugh protestors, not so much..

I just saw a headline earlier where Trump thinks Democratic voters will vote for the GOP this November 'cause they saw what a "sham" the party's attempts to sink Kavanaugh were.

Hahahahahahaha...no.

I’m sure everyone’s seen the meme, but it must be stated that the 51 Senators in favor of Kavanaugh represent 141m people, and the 49 who aren’t represent 181m people. The president also lost the popular vote by 3m.

We have structural problems and are living in a less and less representational democracy. It’s not so much that the government is run by rich, straight, white men, but that voters from white, rural, less populated areas wield disproportional political power.

We have a problem.

Also a good point, Irvine. I've been wondering about that, too-the president's approval ratings continually hover in the thirties, and Congress' approval rating is even more embarrassingly low. You'd think that would tip them off that maybe a lot of people aren't happy with them.

But of course, if things are as skewed as you note in your post because of how representation is structured, that would certainly explain a large part of why they don't seem to care about that fact, or have no interest in doing anything about it.

Ooh live swearing in. It's like all Presidential and stuff. I hate to say it but Justice Ginsburg does not look well. I could swear Trump groaned under his breath after saying her name.

It’s a problem that’s built into the system and it’s been there forever, it’s just that America 2018 has greatly exacerbated these flaws. And it’s just going to get worse as populations continue to shift to the big cities.

That awkward moment when the feds freeze the assets of the oligarch most connected to Manafort and the Russian attack on out election and find Jarvanka's best friend living there instead.

how do taxes work over there? are the most highly populated (biggest tax revenue) states subsidising these rural states, or do your taxes stay in your own state?

because that would be ironic if these Trump voters are living off those they despise so much omg

Both... There's state tax that stays within the state, and there's federal tax that is spread throughout the country. Federal tax is more than state.


The irony, though, isn't that liberal cities are funding red states. The irony is that red states are actively supporting cutting taxes at extreme levels, the benefit of which disproportionately helps liberal cities and, in turn, cuts funding to red states.
