Let's get all serious this weekend. The theme is POLITICS.

1. What way do you lean, if at all?
Back
2. Who's your least favourite politician? Let's not make it easy and take Trump out of the running. Doesn't have to be alive. I said, Trump's out of the running!
Kentucky Senator McConnell. I suppose former Wisconsin senator Joseph McCarthy was more actively venal but that is probably just legend.
3. In your opinion, what is the most important piece of legislation passed in, say, the last 20 years, either in your country/state or in the world?
The Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019
4. And what is the most important piece of legislation that has yet to be passed?
Can't say. Not a duck but our problems are legion.
5. What do you believe to have been the worst mistake made by a politician in your city/state/country?
The former President "sparing the American people the grief" of information that might have saved millions of lives.
6. If you could kill every politician in the world, but had to leave one alive, who would it be and why?
Politicians are like everyone else. Getting caught committing transgressions is apparently still entertaining, so why bother?

Since ando beat me to the joke answer I would've given, I guess I'll go serious.

I am socially left except sometimes when it comes to certain specific things like cancel culture etc where I sometimes prefer to have edgy, problematic or even evil content out there just for the sake of having it out there.

Economically I guess I am socdem... Capitalism but with progressive taxes and social programs... Until somebody demonstrates a better model to replace capitalism

2. Who's your least favourite politician? Let's not make it easy and take Trump out of the running. Doesn't have to be alive. I said, Trump's out of the running!
Hitler... I know it's controversial to say but... Hitler was even worse than Trump. Dunno what's wrong with the rest of you guys who didn't say hitler

3. In your opinion, what is the most important piece of legislation passed in, say, the last 20 years, either in your country/state or in the world?
bruh....

4. And what is the most important piece of legislation that has yet to be passed?
UBI


5. What do you believe to have been the worst mistake made by a politician in your city/state/country?

Obama telling Trump he would never be prez

6. If you could kill every politician in the world, but had to leave one alive, who would it be and why?
question sucks bruh

I think few of us tend to think of Hitler as a politician. While he certainly was, the overused label of mass-murderer tends to be used for him and I guess we all forget he was also a politician.

Still, Thatcher was worse.

It was an unspoken rule that could've been addressed before that's now codified and cemented into precedent. It'll be a massive obstacle to any attempt to eliminate bribery and corporate ownership of politicians.

I dunno that bribery is even the essential component of our oligarchy, it's just the handshake in the already implicit class understanding

this is not a hard opinion, just a thought

Ja I feel ya. An obstacle to someone introducing that legislation is like an obstacle for the tooth fairy.

Well, call me crazy but Hitler transcends the term, politician. Demagogue, dictator or anti-christ? Ok. He tapped (and continues to tap) something so viciously obscene in human beings that mere politician won't cut it, jwb.
