Nations Lacking Foreign Rivals Inevitably Tear Themselves Apart

This is the year the bottom dropped out. This is is the year our politics became a true bloodsport; war by other means.

You can just feel it.

If America’s right and left did not have politics, they would be killing each other. It will, one day, likely come to that regardless.

The Other Side is now completely, totally 100% unacceptable.

    Chuck looks like he’s about to slide under the table. But, come to think of it, he always looks like that.

    Yeah, suddenly it’s a problem when, after 50+ years, the right finally realizes what kind of fight it’s in and returns fire. Fuck off.

    Depose: “to testify or affirm under oath, especially in a written statement:”
    Some ‘writers’ on political topics have problems with the English language.

        I was suggesting that the writer of the article seems to be aware of only the first usage. Being as I am accustomed to using it in either sense, depending on context.

          Well you’re ahead of me.. had only remembered the stem of the second sense as a noun in deposition.

    Countries where politics is a zero sum blood sport usually have an amalgamation of interests which divide into two competing political factions, the crooked fanatics (marxists or islamists) and the fanatic crooks (crony caps backed mildly islamist thieves).
    It is important to understand that the extreme left DemocRat faction is far more comfortable with Trump as a demonized “enemy president” because the first opponent they must utterly subjugate and render powerless are the “go along, get along, patronage obsessed, crooks first faction” in their “own” party.

    “Clausewitz, on war”, is a book that should be mandatory reading.
