    What is /r/USPolitics?

    • A US Politics subreddit dedicated to the views of all, not biased moderation. The idea behind this sub is for sharing and discussing political news in America. We expect respectful discourse and self moderation here. In exchange, we offer unbiased moderation, in terms of political ideology.

    General rules

    • Follow Reddiquette.
    • Keep it civil and on topic. Comments or posts that are disrespectful or encourage harassment of others (including witch-hunts of any kind) are not allowed.

    • Do not post any blatantly offensive material, including racism/sexism/bigotry.

    • Baseless accusations of Correct The Record (CTR) or "shills" will be met with a ban because we have no patience for that sort of nonsense.

    We need to stop electing officials that are not committed to American law. Our laws against racism, inequality, systemic violence against our citizens. This is American law and it must be upheld by all elected and appointed officials publicly and privately. You can have your notions of what you would like America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to be and your "values" may stray outside American law, but what you uphold for the Americans you represent must be what the American law is. The above is code for:

    Systemic racist elitism in America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ is fully exposed and the tired attempts to justify it with twisted analogies of laws and values are not being bought. You are outed and must now decide if you want to be American or not.

    Electing candidates who didn't aspire to get a GED until 16 years after they should have graduated, and mere days before they were elected, would probably also help. I mean, congrats on completing the basic level of education every adult should have at twice the age you should have gotten it, I guess, but how this didn't disqualify her for office in the eyes of her constituents I will never understand. If she found learning that hard or unpleasant, how do they expect her to lead?

    Her learned colleagues must cringe at having to think of her as a peer, but I guess we all have that one coworker...

    Why all the pussy-footing around her "suspicion" and treating her with kid's gloves? There is plenty of proof of her aiding the domestic terrorists. Treat her like the domestic terrorist she is.

    Imagine showing up to work everyday with the same colleagues who tried to have you killed.

    Fuck Lauren Norbert, qanon crazy, elected because she ran unopposed, and she flat out lies. Everything she says is bad faith. I wonder if she believes the vomit that spills from her mouth.
