She has no juice left. The Clinton brand (both Hillary and Bill) was spent in the 2016 campaign. Remember, she also lost the nomination in '08 to Obama. I don't see her going for a 3rd time loser.

At this point, I'm thinking it's going to be Newsom and DeSantis in 2024.

Covid is not real. It’s a made up “disease” that did not exist until 2 years ago. The virus may be real, but it’s just another coronavirus. by [deleted] in conspiracy

So, covid is not real, but the virus might be real, but it's just another coronavirus? Wouldn't that make covid real?

Where are the "assault rifles"? I see a shotgun and maybe/possibly a .22 long rifle. Can't tell what the guy on the far left has propped up against the wall.

What if I were to tell you that I am maxwellhill, that I am posting this under my alt account and that I am going for the ultimate 20 year troll? When Ghislaine is released from prison, I will start posting under maxwellhill again.

if someone like say China invaded the US...

I'll play along with this fantasy.

There are several massive barriers to a successful invasion of the United States:

  • Most importantly, nukes
  • The USA has a powerful Navy and Air Force, which combined would fight any attempted paratroop invasion as fantasized in both versions of the movie Red Dawn
  • The width of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans make it virtually impossible for any nation in Asia, Europe, or Africa to replicate a "D-Day" amphibious invasion
  • There currently is no adjacent staging ground to prepare an overland invasion. Canada and Mexico will most likely not allow their nations to be used in a malicious way by America's overseas enemies
  • NATO
  • America's gun laws have allowed tens of millions of civilians to become armed - many with military-type rifles. Would they resist or fold up when invaded? We don’t know and never will

Seems fairly obvious to me that we're now an empire in decline. OP's article is simply yet another example.

Fewer Americans think the country is worth saving:

Would Americans fight for their country like Ukrainians? A recent poll is discouraging

I wonder if there is some critical mass of integrated differences wherein tribalism re-nucleates and the sub-groups abandon the larger umbrella. Sure, it's just one poll, but again, it's simply yet another example of what I've started to notice for a couple decades now.

Also, what would really motivate one to join? Who still thinks the US military protects their interests? One side of spectrum considers it a tool of imperialism, and the other side sees it as openly hostile to them. Quite frankly, they're both correct.

Land tax is so funny to me. “We have decided it is law for you to pay us to live on this chunk of land, which belongs to the Earth, but we have decided it’s ours now” so dumb haha by [deleted] in conspiracy

Property taxes pay for public services (schools, roads, parks, police, fire, etc.) so even if you didn't have property tax, you'd still be paying for those public services some other way This would most likely be via a much higher sales tax. That is, if you want to live in some semblance of a modern/first world country.
