    How bad do you think politics will get this year?

    I remember in 2016 being brought to tears and just being sick to my stomach seeing what people were doing to each other. Most of the videos everyday people saw were of name-calling but I saw ones where people were actually attacking each other, knocking old people to the ground and spitting on them, throwing eggs at women...

    I was legitimately ashamed to call myself an American. I am hoping it doesn't get that bad again but I have a feeling it will and might even be worse. I just hope with, whatever happens, enough people stand up against these types of people and put them behind bars this time.

    How bad do you think it will get for the US or anywhere else? I am not sure if politics happen in line with the US or not.

    They won't get locked up the way they should because a lot of that hatred and anger is inorganic. It's not a crime like a lone burglar deciding to break into a house and getting caught, the whole media and plenty of the government is in on it. They still haven't cracked down on Antifa, do you really think the government intelligence agencies can't find the people starting these violent protests & riots? Hell, even the local police should be able to. They generally use Facebook to congregate and organize things & that's about as insecure as it gets. This goes for both sides btw, I hope everyone can keep in mind that we have the right to assemble and protest peacefully in the USA. When violence enters the equation all bets are off. I sincerely hold nothing against a person who can disagree with me calmly.

    I hate to say it, but I think people are even more poorly adjusted than in 2016 and this Fall is going to be a bloodbath, figuratively and literally.

    Pretty much never, lol. I at least used to have some respect for the whole process though. Even though I've always believed that the entire system is rigged (not just who wins, I mean the whole contest from the start), at least very few people got hurt and it didn't tear up as many families and friendships.

    I dont think everything is going to change that mutch in only a single year. In Europe, the last EU election seems to have slowed things down. The last british elections also lowered the lefts confidence and contradicted their propaganda in addition to that. However there seems to be someting like a growing environment hysteria which politicians like to use to raise taxes. I think it is important to protect the environment but not with an emotional underline. Nevertheless I think tax increases and a decrease of livestandart are to be expected similar to california over the next 10 years.

    It was never perfect but I believe it reeked less before 15 Years without the PC culture.

    Back in the early 90's!
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    I remember when Bill Clinton and Monica had their thing going and my cousin who is a year and a half younger than me, must have been 9 at the time asked a room fuill of people what a blow job was. LOL So considering that was the only political insight I had back then, I have to agree on it being better in the 90's.

    I feel like social media's boom made things worse. You just didn't see as much hatred and not as many people were given a platform to have a voice and it seems the loudest and dumbest ones get heard the most.
