I don't know what you're all complaining about . Under Trump we have had ten hours of studio releases from Ae and something like 30 hours of soundboards, as well as the best aphex music since the

Democracy is tied to human rights, otherwise it's not democracy. That doesn't mean that democracies can't violate human rights, but they have to be integral part of every democracy's state of law, and in the case of the US pre 65 the country's laws directly opposed any modern idea of human rights by being the legal framework for a racial caste system. If the US before the Voting Rights Act of 1965 was a democracy, then modern Iran is a democracy, too.

Also, causing regime changes where democracies or forming democracies are replaced by dictatorships isn't something particularly democratic. The US actively suppressed democracy in other places of the world, dictatorships are easier to control. But that is another matter.

16 is for local and regional elections here, and I think 14-year-olds should be able to vote in such elections, too. Some of them understand more about politics than some 60-year-olds and their brain is developed enough to think about politics. It also helps politicising them. Sure, they are probably easier to influence and parties would (have to) cater to young people more to get more votes, but that's not a bad thing. Young people have to live the longest with the aftermath of the decisions that are made now. Generally politics are very age-ist because controlled by boomers and giving the new generation some more weight in elections isn't a terrible idea. Not sure about voting age for national elections, though. It should probably be 16, not 14, but I don't know.

Human rights are very much a modern thing whereas democracies have been around for thousands of years. I’m not sure the idea of the two is necessarily entwined. Modern Iran is a theocracy, as religious officials hold more power than elected ones. 
 

Not quite sure why you’re bringing in foreign policy matters. 

I’d say that 18 is a good age for voting mostly because then you’ve finished high school and should have some capacity for critical thinking (please note I said should...)

interesting how older voters disproportionately vote for regressive pieces of shit but for some reason were talking about a minimum voting age instead of a maximum voting age

since all these lawsuits to stop the steal are going nowhere, plan B is to start arresting family members of your political opponent. the mission here is to create so much bad press for Biden, that the courts are forced to give those far-fetched kraken based accusations a 3rd or 4th look.

easiest to start with low-hanging fruit - Biden's drug using, China loving son:

Quote

In addition to Delaware, the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized Hunter Biden’s finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation. The person said that, as of early last year, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden’s foreign ties. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

 

then target Joe's brother as well:

Quote

In addition to the probe into Hunter Biden, federal authorities in the Western District of Pennsylvania are conducting a criminal investigation of a hospital business in which Joe Biden’s brother James was involved. Federal officials have asked questions about James Biden's role in the business, according to a second person with direct knowledge of that investigation, who said it remains ongoing.

 

and if all else fails, you frame Joe for murder. if he's in jail, he can't be president.

it really is hilarious when you think about how trump is directing people to investigate the Biden clan for money laundering. donnie should have been jailed for numerous white collar crimes by now. but no, he'll ride out his days in a fucking golf scooter on his Floridian dictator compound.

SCOTUS allows biden to steal the election.

Quote

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court refused Friday to let Texas challenge the election results in four battleground states critical to President Donald Trump's defeat at the polls last month, likely sealing his political fate.

"Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another state conducts its elections," the court said in a brief order. It dismissed all other related claims as moot.

this means war. and kavanaugh is now a rapist (?) 

edit: kavanaugh has been compromised
