    I hate nationalism. It's small-minded bs for idiots and bigots to cling to for self worth.

    You're throwing random **** at the walls. That's pathetic.

    Nationalism is needed when someone is invading your country (like we did vs Russia), but outside of that not so much. For example stupid trade war with China (tariffs) isn't about true capitalism - it's just one trick in nationalism tool box (I assume it's failing too as Americans are paying a lot, correct me if I'm wrong).

    Worst thing about nationalism is that when people use it as way to elevate themselves above other people, like you can justify all kind of bad shi* by saying it's about being good nationalist. Only exception, when it's not about war time, where nationalism is healthy attitude is when it's linked to welfare, equality and responsibility. In my mind ultra rich are not those with healthy nationalism in their veins, same with people taking corporate money, brown nosing liars, so on..

    I stand on principles, not tribalism, even when the Russians attack.

    But she is sending the articles over. So, there will be exoneration. All she did was delay the exoneration a couple of weeks, weeks which Congress was off anyway.

    This man is a fraud and a clown. You guys are poised to elect: A man who cheats and pays hush money; lies and commits acts of war on sovereign soil without regard to -anything-, law or otherwise; a man who endlessly divides the country by using agitprop to promote a pwn the libs ideology among his followers, and proliferates the divide by insulting everyone he can; a man who hired and illegally did so, immigrants from poland; a man who has a clear sudafed or adderall consumption problem; a man who has acted hand over fist to undermine workers and promote a pro-employer, anti-worker atmosphere; a man who blunders from crisis to crisis to crisis, and attempted to divert attention from his impeachment by assassinating a general, breaking his campaign promise to end the wars in the middle east.

    His policies don't help you, unless you're a capitalist employer. You may think they do; but they don't.

    He is a clowncar president, and all of you are poised to fly off the cliff with him, country be damned.

    Not as pathetic as people like you that live in fantasy worlds.
    My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. Money is important but secondary.

    I'm not a nationalist, I despise the moronic ideology, and you called me one. Who's in a fantasy?

    Huh. So given that we now know there was no immient threat and this was planned out months ago, it's becoming crystal clear that this was an illegal act.
