To also recap: the United States interferes in other countries elections all the time, including Russia's. Gloss over that point I'm sure.
Yes we have. However, two wrongs don't remotely make a right - we've bombed plenty of countries, it doesn't mean we somehow should be ok with someone bombing us - and I personally didn't have jack to do with any of it, so I'm not sure how that's supposed to shape my opinion beyond that I should be opposed to our interference too, which I am.
The Russia scaremongering when the President is doing way worse things in the open is incredible. I thought maybe Trump would unite so much hate against him and his awful policies that good could come from him being president but we see responses like this. Instead, it's Russia that is the bad guy behind it all, instead of an awful American person and an awful American party.
The entire premise of my post is centered on the actions of the Americans currently in power.
People so worried about sanctions with all that is going on right now. The Cold War flames can so easily be stoked again. Forget ending the war on terror and the constant drone bombing without authorization, forget Syria, forget that Trump destroyed the Iran deal and is pushing war with them, forget that he gutted things with that tax cut and down the road all these Republicans are going to cut every other wellfare system and act like they just had to because of the budget now. Just unbelievable to me. I was a lot more hopeful about the response to this man being President.
I have this crazy idea that it's possible to have opinions on more than one thing at a time. We can make an emoluments thread or an entitlements thread or a general foreign policy thread, or a thread about setting up shell corporations to pay off adult film stars you cheated on the First Lady with, and have those discussions too. If you want more focus on them, then I recommend starting those threads and getting the ball rolling.
