LOL at this shill post! Upvoat this so everyone can see. How did this post explode in popularity here on voat? v/ProtectVoat LINK

You have to look at the whole picture. The climate thing, and the mass surveillance thing (NSA) are the only policies I disagree with Trump on, BUT.... Does anyone seriously think Obama is pro-environment? I'm not denying that he SAYS he is. Isn't he the one building the Dakota pipeline?? Wasn't it his administration that increased our nation's purchasing of oil drastically? Increase of Fracking?? etc, etc, etc

I'm sorry voaters, but it looks like our job just got a lot harder. Voat is finally becoming popular enough to have influence, and so the shills are coming. We have to fight with upvoats, downvoats, and well-reasoned comments.

Edit 1: someone asked why no anti-trump comments are allowed, this is my response: "The fact that this post exploded in popularity, very unusually, especially for the content. Along with all the unusual voats on the comments... means it's a shill. Use reasoning. I would have actually upvoated this article if the OP's top comment didn't set off so many red flags."

Edit 2: here's a copy of the comment I responded to (the top comment [as of 2hrs in]), in case he changes it again. "He's going to drain the swamp... and fill it back up with industrial byproduct contaminants.In other news... Donald Trump's new FDA head declares lead an essential vitamin." 1.9hrs in that has +58 and -24. It was almost all + at the beginning

Edit 3: holy fuck, I guess the bots they're using don't read comments. The upvoats are still flying into his his shit (as of 2hrs in). It stays the same ratio too lol. This isn't reddit faggot. We can fucking see it!

EDIT 4: EVERYONE UPVOAT THIS POST ITSELF SO EVERYONE ON VOAT CAN SEE WHAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH IN THE FUTURE. V/BESTOF THIS SHIT

LAST EDIT: FUCKIN LOL. [4hrs in] Looks like he either ran out of bot votes (at least 50 for comments), or realized just how much he fucked up. Be careful lads. They may only use this as a learning experience to be more subtle. Don't go around calling people who disagree with you shills, but stay vigilant. I'm gonna go buy me a voat sweater lol :)

LAST LAST EDIT: I just ordered the sweater. I love you fellow based faggots.

The reddit betas are here in spades, and using every tool at their disposal to try to bring down Voat. What these assholes don't realize is that we're ALPHAS, and our eight-inch manhoods will always defeat their tiny, inadequate peckers when it comes to the penis wars....

Edit: ahhh, made some reddit betas unhappy. Take a look at my CCP, you tiny-dicked cunts - I don't fucking care. Here's proof: the only thing you're ever gonna hear from a woman is "in it in yet?". Yep, that's just how inadequate you truly are....

Don't be silly.I am upvoating because the article pleases me and everyone should see it. This guy is exactly what we need to swing the pendulum of regulation back to where we can comply with it. It is no secret that regulations are killing industries and companies like VW and Nissan resort to cheating to stay in business and compete. WAKE UP

No. It's just that very young accounts that immediately take to posting grandiosely inflammatory articles without the courtesy of an archive link are highly suspect.

This post has 91 upvotes in an hour and a half, comparable posts in the sub for the same time period have 30ish votes, like this post https://voat.co/v/news/1469474 , 31 upvotes 0 downvotes posted 1.5 hours ago, Definitely seems like vote bot/brigading

Because they know the real discussions and conversations happen where they aren't, and they can't stand being left out even though everyone hates them.

Correct me if I'm wrong but people come to this sub to Voat on the content, not the poster, what's your point? I had no idea it was a new account I just upvoted an interesting article.

He's going to drain the swamp... and fill it back up with industrial byproduct contaminants.

In other news... Donald Trump's new FDA head declares lead an essential vitamin.

Edit: Jesus Fucking Christ people it's a joke. I'm not sure why anyone cares enough to downvoat. But, fuck me, I'm just as perplexed about the upvoats. It wasn't funny enough for 85+ ups and not lame enough to piss off 57+. Chill the fuck out people. Go smoke a joint or something. Maybe get your dick sucked. Anything is better than getting a sandy vagina over a stupid joke.

If the EPA is a waste (it's not) it's because of regulatory capture and/or defunding by right wingers.

i've been saying this all along.

trump is just another actor in a theater put on for people so they feel entertained and get a catharsis in place of actual meaningful participation in their own self-governance.

it's. fucking. staged. you. have. no. say. build good systems. or enjoy the shitty one you have. it's called an oligarchy over a bought republic over a false front indirect democracy... to be technical.

Systems will always suck. Even if they're good for a moment, bad people are always scheming on how to take them over, and they are persistent as fuck.

The only other option is to make the government weak. So pick you poison: big, strong government playing favorites (e.g. Carrier and Boeing) and always just a bunch of greedy opportunists vying for influence, or, small, weak government too irrelevant to be worth bribing.
