If Trump gets his grubby paws on fucking Cuba I'll eat Baron alive


Thank you news annon!

Big thanks Newsie!

Any thoughts on what the German coalitions are gonna look like?

Fucking burgers don't understand how parliaments work. Both CDU/CSU and SPD lost ground to AFD. Merkel might still have won, but she's definitely in a bad position

Honestly, SPD's delegates/represenattives/whatever could show up to work on the first day of the new term and claim to be CDU and no one would notice.

How did the AfD get so strong in EAST GERMANY of all places?

I tried to warn comr8s here months ago, but they didn't listen. Alas.


Jamaica most likely (CDU, Greens, FDP)

East Germany is well-known for being right-wing.

Yea but they used to be Socialist and vote for the Linke. Why would they be more right-wing than West Germany? I don't get it.

If this is true, then Trumpcare is dead. Again.

Most post-communist countries got fucked after being integrated into the capitalist system, thus proles are angry. Obviously, this anger not only causes left wing radicalism, but right wing radicalism too. Bringing "back" socialism isn't an easy nor in some cases desirable thing to do , so they go with being reactionaries.

Wait another month. It'll be knees weak mom's spaghetti all the fuck over again. Again and again. For four years.

Why don't they just leave healthcare alone? It's one of the few issues that Democrats, lame though they are, actually have an advantage on when campaigning. All this does is waste their political capital. Seems a bit strange.

Because they're all brain dead. Don't mistake American politicians as smart, they just have money and ended up in power.

If this vote fails, it fails for good. Once Oct. 1st hits, they'll need 60 votes to pass any legislation, not 51. That means working with the Democrats, they will not vote to repeal Obamacare.

Because their big donors want a juicy tax cut for themselves at the cost of Americans' healthcare.

There's no point in gaining political capital if you don't use it. Think of it like money. Why make money if you're not going to spend it?

Although their health care plans are far less popular than the ACA (and maybe even single-payer), this is what they were elected to do. Over the last 7 years, the Republican party has essentially become the Repeal & Replace party. It's probably better for them to pass an unpopular bill that will damage the country than it is for them to not deliver on their central campaign promise. After all, they can always lie about the damage they're causing and their voters will probably believe them.

It still kills me someone as retarded as Ted Cruz has political power over anyone

The lack of a revolutionary workers' movement.

Because CDU/CSU sucks, Die Linke is full of liberals just like Grüne, SPD is complete garbage,…
