But don't dare report Voter Fraud. Your post will end up in The Rubber Room or Flame Zone.
Right wingers are bigger frauds.
Just another example that this thread belongs in the flame zone since we get nothing but flame bait and bot responses and one liners in here that do nothing but bump the thread for no good reason.

And I am stupid enough to participate in this commie bullshit.

Almost everyone's aware of Alaska's Permanent Fund:

"...The program began in 1976 after the discovery of oil on Alaska’s North Slope.

"The then-governor, a renegade Republican named Jay Hammond, concluded that this windfall was too good to just give to the oil companies.

"So he devised the program to share the revenue with Alaska residents...."

"OK, here’s the idea for President-elect Biden:

"Bring 20 of the Trumpiest-looking Alaskans to a press conference.

"Unveil a plan whereby every man, woman, and child gets a $1,000 check every month from the government.

"Finance it with taxes on large wealth, fossil fuels, financial transactions, and intellectual property resulting from taxpayer-funded public research.

"Invite the Alaskans to describe the joy of getting their checks: no middleman, no means tests, no government forms to fill out—just free money as everyone’s share of the American commons.

"Dare Mitch McConnell to oppose it."

A Big, Simple, Winning Issue for Biden

The "American commons" are the cultural and natural resources accessible to all members of society. In a time when the privileged few expand their vast fortunes despite a global pandemic and recession, it seems fitting to socialize the profits and privatize the losses.

Does anyone believe "Delaware Joe" will turn on his corporate benefactors?

If I were you I would wait to make these observations until he is actually inaugurated...right now that is in danger of not happening.

Alta California, federalist.
All laws of a general nature shall have uniform operation.

We should and could solve simple poverty through uniform operation of the laws.
Yeah...um you're a simpleton.....that's exactly how Venezuela lost its fortune.
No, it isn't. And, uniform operation of the laws is a Constitutional requirement. Only illegals don't care about the law.
