@tb87670 Same with immigration. We could be enforcing laws already on the books and making this revenue-positive through fines. The fact that we don't, for decades running, should tell you things are already running exactly the way the powers that be want them to run. Now the immigration and employment enforcement bureaucracy gets to sit on its hands fully funded while a wall building bureaucracy churns through taxpayer money.
Meanwhile the labor market remains flooded with illegal workers, and the only thing that slowed it down in my lifetime was when the great recession caused millions of jobs to evaporate and illegal laborers started returning South in greater numbers than they came for several years.
I notice Reddit is selling ads on TheRedPill. Wonder what the implications are, quarantine wise? Look at marijuana, a quarter century ago the government spent billions a year trying to suppress it, now it generates so much tax revenue it's an essential business and actively protected by them like all of their other dear institutions.
@tb87670 IDK why you think I'm in favor of mail-in ballots, having started this discussion saying in person balloting can be done with social distancing so this "delay the election or admit masks are unnecessary" weird false dichotomy is a non-issue.
Personally I don't trust mail in ballots and have never used them, nor do I consider them a covid "solution". I'm also not categorically opposed to ID for voting as long as there remain provisional voting options where the voter without ID still votes but must be vetted against two master lists or some similar system as described elsewhere. Under this system, if the same guy tries to come through two extra times as Dorothy Miller and Fluffy Paws Miller from the same address, they'd totally notice this at the admission table even if it had somehow slipped through the voter roll vetting process.
IDing that the applicant is an actual person associated with a physical address is part of the voter registration process. Most of your complaints of fraud occur at this level, and should be addressed at this level. Mandating voter ID isn't a solution to problems with the voter registration process, and trying to apply this solution at the ballot box level hurts more legit voters than turns away fraudulent ones.
Voter ID at the ballot box a showy way of looking like the Registrar and the political party doing the complaining give a damn about their duties on the one day when everyone's watching, while blame-shifting attention (onto individual voters) from the hundreds of days between elections when they're doing a shit job at maintaining voter rolls of integrity. People here are computer savvy enough to see that there's no excuse not to be able to automate 98% and hand check the 2-or-whatever-% exceptions with the level of computing power and databases available today.Read More

Sounds like The Fraternity has openings for sales, game, and recruitment/growth mentors. Will it ever get them with that kind of enticement?
@Osiris DEER- Defend, explain, excuse, rationalize. Also just discovered, the top Google result for the above string is an article by AFTSOV here on Forums.Red! www.forums.red/p/theredpill/4349/talking_with_women_always_dare_never_deer
@AFTSOV I am not a notable chess player, or boxer for that matter. Despite his misgivings and counterproposal, I was willing to go through with the challenge. Even though I'd be far outclassed in strength and boxing technique, I am built for cunning and endurance, plus a willingness to escalate if necessary in the face of challenge rather than let others just impose their will.
it does not matter what I say or post, what articles I link, you will refute all of it.
That's the whole point of debate. You posted responses that supported my claims better than your own, then gave up on the discussion, then even deleted your last lengthy DEER about why you were giving up the discussion.
If your ideas don't stand up well here, against people who like you and consider you an ally, what does that say about their robustness in the greater world of competing ideas, and your ability to carry them?
shame is facts don't and won't matter.
To illustrate this claim, you linked to a debate where the facts you presented supported my position better than your own, then you DEERed at length about refusing to continue the discussion that wasn't going well for you.
