    I don't know why but I can't see any damage being done to the Republicans this mid term election. The band will just continue to play on, I kinda feel Republican voters will feel emboldened by this 'victory' and vote in their droves because any opposition to them by the libs is just a conspiracy to destroy America.

    Because theyíre human?

    I, for one, am impatiently waiting for the future where machines rule everything.

    To be fair, the actual president is on tape talking about grabbing women's pussies. That didn't / doesn't bother his electorate. Neither will Kavanagh. Even if he confessed to the alleged assault the Republicans would still be all over him.

    Certainly true the irony of Christian family values supposed to be at the heart of the Republican party... And yet it's full of people who hate their (black) neighbours, want to do away with the state (which helps the poor and needy) and Trump himself is on what, his third marriage?! And is a tax dodging fuck.

    Always think the same about Boris Johnson... Appeals to that sense of traditional conservative Christian values and yet is an adulterous cunt who doesn't give a shit about the poor and meek.... In their "survival of the fittest" tory world, the poor and meek only have themselves to blame.

    Work your way to wealth like we did - says a long tory lineage of "self made" privately educated people descended from millionaire parents.

    I think the most charitable view is that many see it as supporting the lesser of two evils, considering how demonised liberals/Democrats are in the minds of Republicans, and many are probably willing to hold their nose if it gets them closer to what they think is saving all the aborted babies.

    Look on the bright side, if he hadn't have been confirmed then there could have been a massive GOP bump in energized voters just before the midterms. Now they've "won" the Brett Bump should die down.

    And then not really giving a shit about them once they come out. Detained by ICE away from their parents? Kiilled in a school shooting? It's all gÚod clean Christian values in America.

    Yep, when you're in the womb you're the miracle who could be the second coming of Christ. When you're out you're just a lazy poor person always looking for a handout.

    Well, I never said they arent hypocritical hate filled bigots, when giving them them the benefit of the doubt. thereís at least some degree of pragmatism behind their views.

    Hmm, I may have come across like I was defending them when I wasnt. Iím just saying on a scale of cuntyness they might be a couple degrees less cunty if you are being really generous. But thatís not to say they arenít cunts.

    It's okay, Taylor Swift said something on twatter and now apparently there's a rush to register. Apparently all the idiots were waiting for a celebrity to tell them what to do, as usual.

    And don't think the political parties haven't noticed that for future campaigns, either.

    That is a damning indication of political apathy and lack of engagement from the government and opposition to talk to younger generations as much as anything.

    Frankly if I were a young American I'd not be voting. Regardless of the color tie, neither side listens to mobilized youth political movements, in fact actively demonize them (Occupy, gun violence etc), so why should they listen to Washington

    You forget that many Americans are extremely selfish.

    To most Americans being in a situation where you get 7 things and you neighbour only gets 2 is preferable to you both getting 10.

    The Democrat suggestion is probably more like you still get 7 but the neighbour now gets 5 which they see as a direct attack against them to aid their lazy neighbour.

    I hear what you're saying but still better to kick the ball out of the game than let the other team stand in front of an empty goal.

    If people (not just the youth) have apathy to vote against the Republicans in such critical times then frankly they get all they deserve (similar to Brexit actually - but in case of the US it's even worse as the whole planet is affected by reckless policies).

    I've not voted most of my life, but made sure to make it count last year when I realised the AfD gaining ground in Germany.

    Voting is the only way that the regular person gets to affect the kind of government they wish to see. If you don't vote, fine (though I support systems of compulsory voting, little bit biased of course), but don't then complain when the people you *really* don't like ride your apathy into power. If young people (understandably) think that the major parties don't care about what they think, then voting in larger numbers will *make* them care.

    And no, the parties aren't "all the same". Which people would discover if they bothered to educate themselves about their political system.

    My only issue with compulsory voting is that there needs to be a means to show that none of the available options are acceptable. (America already has this to be fair. U.K. not so much).

    With the existing voting scheme there should be a means to find out why people do not vote.
    Options include (but might not be limited to):
    A) Too lazy
    B) Do not like any of the options
    C) Local authority removed the option of voting from you. (What happened to me with Brexit).

    It already exists. Here, you only have to show up to vote. What you then do with your ballot paper is up to you. You can draw little cartoons on it, write another name in, or just waltz right out of the polling place without filling anything in.

    Which has a similar effect to not voting. But at least forcing people to turn up, forces them to think about what they want. Laziness is no longer an excuse. And politicians (ideally) can't get away with antagonising younger people, because they will be voting along with everyone else.
