The Economist: The TPP is dead submitted by flyawayhigh to news

What do we think? I doubt it. A new population-resistant strain of TPP will come.

I was going to say the same thing. There are so many articles on this right now, most of them characterizing Voat without bothering to look at it. I'm not here from the FPH incident. I'm here because Voat doesn't have power hungry mods censoring everything. : D

Sanders manages to demonstrate a hodgepodge of nativist, nationalist, protectionist, and socialist sentiments.

This is the criticism of some ideological purist who expects and supports a sudden total transformation to a simplistic and idealized system that could never work -- not to mention the impossibility of transition itself -- whether that be capitalism, communism, nationalism, socialism, etc. All ideologies are bad and some are worse than others.

Despite the "socialist" label here, what Bernie is actually exhibiting is practicality. I know practicality is complicated, and it seems to be some sort of confusion or hypocrisy to the simplistic ideological purists. But all it means is we look at the world and make changes that will actually work to achieve goals -- situation by situation -- without some cloud of ideological bias overlaying everything.

Yes, there's the other major deceptive tactic of this headline. I mentioned one and was swiftly downvoated. :)

The Truth About Immigration and Welfare submitted by ieoy to politics

flyawayhigh 6 points -5 points (+1|-6) ago

I am about five minutes in and I can see this is misleading. The "facts" guy has already made two huge mistakes in his first two big facts....

  1. Immigrant Households are not Immigrants

  2. No way is a "half a trillion" dollars a year spent of welfare (aka needs-based benefits)

Off it goes. Thanks for the video. :)

Bernie Sanders: Trump To Blame For My Supporters' Violence submitted by zenmastery to politics

Great press release here

Better without the filter. :)

I love these logicians. On one hand, Bernie is responsible for people protesting Trump. On the other, Trump is not in any way implicated in the assaults by his supporters despite his encouragement of them.

Logic fail.

The amazing thing is -- this writer actually thinks he's smart and logical. He believes he caught hypocrisy. No, he created hypocrisy.
