Additionally, the original quizzes I authored that QM took the questions from for this one are years old and predate the Trump presidency. If they weren't, then, rest assured I could have added many more questions.
2. There's ample evidence of Russian collusion with the current president and his aides. There were also Americans in the 1950s that colluded with the Soviets; though, not as many as were persecuted by their own government. I guess you're trying to compare Robert Mueller with Joseph McCarthy. I humbly submit that this is insane.
3. Neither this quiz nor the series that it was based on are meant to be comprehensive or a "best of" list. It's random.
There is a strong movement to do "anything" to remove Trump from office. Whether you like the guy or not, this is a scary time for our country. If you have concrete evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians, I would glad to hear about it. So far you have not brought up anything that would count as evidence. This is all circumstantial.
It was trickier than I thought it was going to be, and I did try "monkey" for the sixth question, more as an educated guess than anything, without any luck. The approval must still be pending.
All in though, I thought it was a good quiz.
Of course, you will probably have a different excuse as to what has spurred the improvement in relations. After all, we can't give any credit to evil Trump.
Obviously the country isn't perfect, as the 5 quizzes on the site under my name attest to. But getting hung up on the "greatest" point is silly.
Clinton was impeached on two counts: perjury and obstruction of justice, but the public obsession was not on this.
By the way, I have only listened to Rush Limbaugh's broadcast one time. I agree that he is not a credible source for information, and is extremely biased to the right. I myself am a conservative, but I don't blindly follow every right wing talking head just because they claim to be conservative.
Yeah, I used to think that, too. Then I recovered from my biases.
okay, then, if what you are most concerned about is the lying, then it's still odd that you would be defending Trump anywhere. The man lies more than any politician in history and that's not even an exaggeration.
1. Separation of church and state
2. Healthcare reform
4. Gun control
5. Tax reform
6. Hate speech (more specifically the definition of)
I would be very surprised to see how you approach these. I think you are more left leaning than you believe you are.
2. I don't think going with Republican Bob Dole's healthcare plan (Obamacare) was a good idea. A single payer system would be better. I don't think healthcare should be a privilege for the wealthy.
3. I fully understand the arguments of those who believe life begins at conception and respect those. I don't think there's a war on women or that pro-lifers wish to attack or take away the rights of women. They are trying to protect the rights of the unborn. That said, I'm pro-choice, though I'd be willing to accept some restrictions.
5. Horse and sparrow economics is proven to not work. Short-term gains for oligarchs should never be prioritized over the general health of the economy, which is driven mostly by having a large and healthy middle class. But I'm fiscally conservative and not a fan of government waste.
6. Free speech is a sacred value and vital part of a functioning democracy and free society. Being protected from hurt feelings is not a right. Everyone has a right to an opinion, even unpopular or hateful ones.
How many times have *you* been accused of being a raging liberal, I wonder? Or do you line up almost perfectly with the political right and therefore only ever get accused of being on one side? Because I get accused of being on both. Which means I'm not on either.
I'm not sure the KKK was all that embarrassing either.
Thurmond and MacArthur never having been presidents is more embarrassing.
Of course they did, funded and created both of these terrorist organizations. The embarrassing part about Afghanistan is that the same guys they supported and funded against USSR during the 80s, now became enemies in a guerila war that ultimately can't be won. Of course, the lucrative part are the natural resources of Afghanistan and it's strategically important position. They can't let it go now, since China became highly interested in that area, but that's another topic.
There was definitely no genocide on Kosovo, Serbian police and military fought with an ISIS-like organization KLA. The "mass murder" in Racak that ultimately triggered the bombing was later proved to be fabricated, but it didn't matter, since the job was already done. The bombing happened without permission of the UN.
As the violence grew and the crackdown turned in to civil war, lots of foreign aid, arms, and fighters began pouring in to Syria. But, at least at first, none of this was coming from the US. It was mostly from other Muslim countries, and soon both inside and outside Syria there was a complex web of tangled loyalties and motivations driving things.
However, in spite of this caution and frequent second-guessing, the situation progressively deteriorated further and further, loyalties shifted, factions merged or disbanded or changed leaders, and eventually many of the more radical and hardline Sunni Islamist fighters in Syria coalesced into the Islamic State. Exactly what the US wanted to avoid.
As far as bombing goes, it's an enormous stretch to call these war crimes, especially the bombing that Trump authorized, which was probably coordinated with his masters in the Kremlin and caused no serious damage. It was just a PR stunt and distraction.
"this quiz isn't ignorant, look at this separate quiz!"
If it isn't are good friend Strawman.
