If they become Americans, definitely. Better than the trash millions of white Americans who hate our creed and actively vote for our collective doom.

At worst it’s purple. Hillary barely won in 2016. The gap between her and Trump was 1/3 of the third party vote. Compare voting #s from 2016 to 2020 and the population increase (nowhere near enough) and get a good laugh in before you cry. State has been blue since universal mail ins, not weed. The problem with colorado is it is amazing and the citizens are drunk on its amazingness. This causes naivety and/or indifference regarding politics, which opens the door wide open for political takeover by the politically charged, which is what happened. Even so, fix the voting and I would put my money on a red state.

Should have paid them some peanuts instead, like the rest of business that takes advantage of the situation and don’t get into trouble.

That’s why religion is our ancestors distilling down experience and learned wisdom over millennia. It became more real/personal than ever before when Jesus offered a way for the individual, all individuals, to seek and find God themselves. That was groundbreaking philosophically. Unfortunately, most modern churches worry more about Jesus pep rallies than the foundational philosophic principles in his words, thus driving people away from God. Call God what you will: God, nature, the Way, creation, the universal mechanism, etc. Call the devil what you will: the devil, Satan, evil, the pathways which erode and destruct rather than enrich and create. How to “survive”/live and how not to “survive”/waste your creation.

It’s not about trump running again, it’s about poisoning and burying the memory of his term. He proved an imperfect but capable person from the private world can enter and start doing positive things rapidly, making the current factions look weak, incompetent, and ridiculous. They need that to stay unknown for those who didn’t see it then, and to make many of the less in-tune Trump supporters question what they remember. MAGA is much bigger than Trump and they’re trying to unmake it’s engine. I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden was put up to make things worse in order for a savior from their ranks to be elected to get their grip back on national politics.

Based on nothing? Lmfao. It’s hilarious the so-called elites still think MAGA is some caveman hero worship movement. The majority of MAGA is a response to the obviousness of our problems and the equally obvious solutions.

Psychological weapons aren’t that complicated. All of the major ww2 players engaged in propaganda. One of the major stories of WW2 is about the transition of scientific hegemony to America, namely physics. Prior to ww2, Germany was the epicenter of theoretical physics, and not all of the great scientists fled Hitler. Some stayed for Germany, some because they were Nazis, some because they were scared, etc. It’s likely Heisenberg stayed to negatively influence the Nazi efforts in atomic bomb research. Many of the greats went to the UK and America before it got super bad, transitioning the heart of physics to those countries (UK was already influential). Most of the key players at Los Alamos were European, or Americans trained by Europeans in Europe. Oppenheimer got his PhD under Max Born in Göttingen, for example. When it all ended, many talented physicists and other scientists were forgiven their sins in order to potentially rejoin the community, which was now burgeoning in America and emaciated in continental Europe. So while gaining German scientific insight was the goal of the US and how it was spun to politicians, really the meat of it was reuniting the theoretical physics community.

Your first mistake is thinking there’s a good team and a bad team.The US partnered with Soviet Russia to finalize becoming a global superpower and got to carve up Europe and the Middle East for the globalists who funded the war from every side.

The difference is the nation was founded upon Christian principles and philosophy, not the pseudo religious Jesus pep rallies that define a vast swath of modern Christianity. They’d be mortified by that, and so would Jesus be.

It’s impossible to make such statements with a critical mind, so they’re missing that.

Stay stagnant until a foundational issue - energy production - has its hands around our neck, or innovate and unlock a paradigm shift for humanity.

We have the tech for clean and reliable energy right now, it’s called nuclear. We could attain energy independence and usher in a new age for humanity. But we remain apes.

We have to contend with the issue that his entire presidency was marred daily by fake news, usually outright lies, and that’s all most people saw. T_D was mentally prepared for the onslaught and every day the lies were shredded to see through to the good he was doing. I don’t know if all of that “knowledge” and “insight” can ever be replicated for those who didn’t experience it in real time.

No. GB was the first to move to official Protestantism via the Anglican Church (because Henry 8 wanted a divorce and the Pope said no; he later cut his new bride’s head off). There were a few attempts for Catholicism to regain its official status but none ever approaching a “tyrannical Catholic monarchy.” The scant “Catholic” or Catholic-sympathetic monarchs following Henry 8 bought themselves nothing but headaches for doing so. People went to North America for a variety of reasons, but mainly bc of old world aristocracy/feudalistic govt. Some literally forced or threatened by force, like the celts in scotland. And even upon arrival, religious/tribal differences remained. The Irish and Catholics were treated like dog shit for 100+ years.

Drug dealers are just a symptom of a disease. Legalize all drugs and let whoever wants to OD go for it. Besides, most ODs happen because of inconsistencies and/or adulterants in illegal drugs. And this is before discussing big pharma.

There are more worthwhile things going on than ever before. Y’all are complaining about peasants and their new age distractions to stave off boredom and lack of purpose. 100 years ago, 99% of people couldn’t do anything besides worry about how to put food on the table. You have the totality of human civ’s knowledge on any device with an internet connection. You can achieve phd+ level knowledge and insight sitting on your couch, for basically free. What you do with that is up to you. Believe me… millions of people are making use of it. If you participate, you will meet them and forge deep communal bonds, and the goings-on of purposeless peasants will never enter your mind.

The American people could be retarded. We won’t ever know until every state has legitimately secured elections. Should be priority #1 because everything else follows. Nuclear energy priority #2.

Shortly after waking up, spend 20 minutes outside in the sun. Not only is that great for vitamin D, doing it first thing gets your hormones on track for the day. It’s the other side to the more commonly known and equally important suggestion to turn off bright lights and avoid screens after around 9pm.
