The Myth of Deregulation
I recently read a book in my high school library. The book I checked out was called "Opposing Viewpoints Reforming Wall Street" and it was published in 2010. In the book, the chapters are actually viewpoints. May people view the economic downfall differently and that is what this book is about. For example, one viewpoint (remember each is a chapter) is that Wall Street is to blame for the economic crisis, the next chapter would is about how Wall Street is not to blame. Another is that government mortgage practices are responsible for the economic crisis, the next would say how they are not.
The viewpoint I am going to summarize in this essay is that deregulation is not to blame for the financial crisis. The author of the viewpoint, James L. Gattuso, a research fellow in regulatory policy at the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at the Heritage Foundation, argues that deregulation cannot be blamed for the current economic crisis. Regulations were decreased under the pr

He wants to expand the War on Drugs. Seriously, this idiot still thinks prohibition works, and we're just not fighting for it hard enough. 

Can the Republicans please just let the Democrats have his head and move on?…

The race for DNC chair is between a white woman who calls for "shutting other white people down" and literally a black nationalist. 

The black nationalist is winning. 

Here is his race-focused campaign platform:
To all of you who hate billionaires, and think voluntary charity can't solve anything, here's the proof that voluntary charity works:…

So why not cut the taxpayer funding of birth control and let voluntary charity take care of anyone who can't afford it?
Should someone with no degree who works hard draining septic tanks for a living be taxed to pay for college for other people's children?
You can't defeat the Alt-Right without understanding why it came about. 

When a Republican is wrong, it's usually because he's ignorant of some scientific or cultural concept. When a Democrat is wrong, it's typically because he's too elitist and dishonest to even CONSIDER an opposing point of view. Until the Alt-Right came along, Republicans tended to be humble, respectful, honorable people, whereas the Democrats would break every rule of decency, decorum, and principle just to suppress the other side and win. 

The Alt-Right gained traction because a subset of Republicans were tired of watching their party behave respectfully and honorably, and then get treated like shit and lose over and over again. That's why they call their fellow Republicans "cucks." 
Mitt Romney's loss was the final straw in this. They realized that in order to win any victories against the Democrats, they have to sink to their level. They have to be boisterous, aggressive, insulting, hypocritical, unprincipled and bigoted. Yes, that's right: The Alt-Right is nothing more than a movement of Republicans who decided to deliberately start acting like Democrats. 

The sad thing is, it worked. It helped the progressives win countless victories for decades, and now that same approach is winning victories for the Alt-Right. Now that Republicans have had a taste of victory, they're going to keep doing this until the Democrats are completely beaten into humble submission. The Alt-Right will only stop when the Democrats are willing to admit that they've been the worst kind of assholes for over a century. The U.S. government was founded with limited, enumerated powers for a reason- to avoid sadistic group warfare via politics. If the Democrats are finally willing to learn that lesson, the Republicans would be happy to return to that type of system. But until the Democrats DO learn that lesson, the Republicans are now going to use the power of government to wage total war on the Democrats' voter base. It's up to the Democrats now to learn their lesson and end this war, or continue suffering crippling defeats. 

So Democrats, what's it going to be? Are you going to keep behaving like dishonest, elitist, entitled little shits, thereby feeding the Alt-Right? OR are you going to learn a more mature approach to dealing with political disagreement and learn to compromise and show respect for other people, draining the Alt-Right of their power?
Other deviants on the politics forum can get 300 comments on their posts after a week if their thread is particularly controversial. I get 300 comments overnight. :iconnorrisplz:

Rand Paul finally woke up and dropped out of the race. I hope he supports a real winner, like Trump... too bad he only had 0.5% to give.

It's going okay. I haven't been on these forums much lately. I haven't seen many interesting threads lately, and haven't had much time to write any myself.
