  2. modernpaladin replied to the thread Convicted felon Donald J. Trump is STILL a defendant and we should not forget this.

    The only reason Biden isnt on trial too is because of his age and poor memory. That is nothing short of 'not competent ...to stand trial.' So in the eyes of our own courts,...

  32. modernpaladin replied to the thread Is America a democracy?.

    There's some things that a 51% majority cannot do. Those things require more like a 2/3 or even 3/4 majority to do. Like enslaving minorities. Or disarming them first.
