I support the second amendment rights of all US citizens, and this is somehow unpopular.

No, I've been repeatedly accused of being something that I'm not and I apparently have to repeat myself.

How much coordinated shitposting is necessary before it reaches the level of "doing something?" If scandals about Russians and Cambridge Analytica are to be believed, there is a level where people can be influenced by what's posted online, but one person armed with nothing more than an opinion on a chan is a slacktivist. Where's the crossover point?

Legitimate question is legitimate.

Let's call it the strategy of least effort. This is the absolute minimum of energy and capital one can expend on this type of propaganda campain. I'm sure there's a correlation between investment and success, but that's not to say with certainty that greater investment always leads to greater success. However unlikely, if other shitposters come to share my opinion, and propagate it through futher shitposts, the snowball effect could be as effective as any professional campaign.

Onward, for science!

It's an infinitely recursive value, you never can actually do anything without dragging your tubby butt out of a chair and going off and meeting like-minded people who will work with you on the goal you all share by repeatedly dragging their tubby butts out of chairs and actually doing things in that scary place you know as the real world.

Its kind of like what happens in Russia except there it ends up in executions or arrests if you oppose the regime or their flunkies.

I'm astonished. They had an opportunity to undermine the culture and prosperity of half a dozen "allies" by dumping thousands of subhumans on them and they gave it up! Kiked by their own kikes?

I'm sure they're just taking some time to research a more subtle way of doing this.

Israeli Trump supporters felt that if they shipped 16,000 off that in a year they'd have 16 million expecting them to do the same.

In other words, it makes just as much sense as anything else Trump says.

Every three days or so, there's dire news about Tesla's future, followed soon after by glowing sales reports or new innovations.

This stock is being manipulated by the media in a really predictable way. I'm thinking about investing at the next cycle.

This joke is funny because she is white racially and culturally and that she was obviously therefor not born in Kenya. The part that's a jab at Duck for perpetuating the "birther" conspiracy isn't what people will be laughing about when they hear this.

Hillary makes this racially charged joke on mainstream TV and no one calls out her shit?

Forgive me if I'm yet again attributing the actions of others upon you, but didn't you lambaste others for not casting a vote for Johnson?

Casting a vote for a candidate you don't believe in is not going to get you anything you want, even if it's in pursuit of some nebulous not clearly defined goal. Supporting a third party candidate only works when you can't grow up, grow a pair, and find a first party candidate that you can support.

Listen, I get it. You bought into the decades of right wing hogwash about Clinton. You're a child. You simply don't know any better. So rather than looking at the sources of all that shit and noticing that absolutely none of it ever led to anything more serious than a blowjob (even the very act of declaring that the blowjob was not sex in court when asked a very pointed question under oath that explicitly did not define oral sex as sex, even after asking for clarification on the question before answering it, meaning the entire impeachment was based on the lie that he perjured himself), you decide that someone who throws shit at a wall long enough must mean the wall was dirty before they started throwing shit at it, no matter how many times it gets washed away and disinfected, it's still going to be dirty because you're a germophobe.

In short, you really need to stop and examine what your motivation is for being a contrarian. None of the shit you've brought up so far is logical, just emotional. There must be someone else because you're a special unique snowflake and you can't ever possibly find a shade of grey you can believe in. Big deal. Become an adult and start investing time into things instead of taking the pablum you're being fed.

Johnson is an idiot. He was an idiot. He is still an idiot. He will never stop being an idiot. You need look no further than his time as governor to find numerous examples of him being an idiot time and time and time again. Wanting to smoke weed with a politician is not reason enough to vote for them. They have to actually stand for things you believe in. And believing in smoking weed isn't enough, no matter how much that may pain you.

>lambaste others for not casting a vote for Johnson
No, I never did that. I never told anyone to vote for Johnson, I may have lambasted them for not voting third party.

You realize in the 2016 campaign both major parties candidates were under federal investigation?

I'm not a contrarian;I'm not suggesting that you should grow up, grow a pair, and take your mouth off the cock of bipartisanism merely to enjoy contradicting the majority. The two party system is bad, an you should feel bad for supporting it. It only ever gets more corrupt and complacent because they expect to stay on top forever. Show them you have the power to knock them down just once and they might learn to respect their voters a little.

It's only coordinated in the sense that their all playing the game.

Worst case scenario is Japan gets a little more nuclear radiation(they're used to it by now), everyone nukes nk(china loses a pawn, but keeps it's border proxy exchanging a hostile state for a nuclear wasteland), and then it's back to the status quo.

So all the posting about the German election got deleted. Why? Even as a non-German I still find it useful to know what's going on in other countries and also to see what sort of trends might apply to where I live.

Right now it looks to me as though despite the number of people who loudly dislike Merkel and her party there are still enough who either don't dislike her as much or dislike the other parties more that she'll get first crack at forming a governing coalition.

So, the Trump administration is simply out to rape the United States and it's people in every which way it can and it's going to get away with it because they are too hopelessly divided on every issue to do anything for themselves.

You've made the classic blunder of mistaking derision and scorn for concern. Russia is teetering on the brink of collapse from economic sanctions (due to the miscalculation of the Crimea invasion) coupled with the global drop in oil & gas prices caused by the US flooding the market.

An opposition party has formed despite Putin making it illegal to hold demonstrations without preapproval from the government. Massive rallies are held in open defiance of his laws.

Putin not only cares, he's fucking terrified because he thinks all of this is the result of a massive CIA plot. By failing to accurately gauge the situation he's making tactical blunder after blunder, opening vulnerabilities to the very people he's counting on to carry him through no matter what - Russian citizens.

He can claim everyone who opposes him are Nazis only so many times before people will start to question why he always trots out the exact same bogeyman every time he encounters opposition. He's quickly reaching the tipping point of citizens unwilling to accept his lies (hence the massive demonstrations) and is simply too old, fat, and dull to find a new bogeyman, which leads to his mistakes piling up in a massive tower of failure that will eventually topple and fall, crushing his flabby body under it.

Stalin not only killed more people than Putin, he killed them openly and without fear of reprisal because he held absolute power over the country. Anyone who opposed him was either killed or sent off to gulags. Putin has to kill in secret. He can't risk openly killing anyone who opposes him because he knows this will result in his downfall. This is why he's far weaker than Stalin. He can't do what needs to be done to install himself as permanent dictator for life. Stalin killed millions of Russians to maintain his power. It takes Putin days, weeks, even months to kill just one. Time is a luxury no human can afford, since it catches up with us all in the end... and with old age comes dementia. For someone like Putin dementia is a fatal flaw.
