外围体育投注With all of the debate surrounding mandatory masks, it led me to look into the history of laws surrounding mandatory clothing in public:
外围体育投注It appears the laws have faced challenges similar to mask mandates - lack of legitimate purpose, restriction on individual liberty, etc.
外围体育投注Do you oppose these laws? Do you believe a mask mandate would fall under a similar justification? In both cases, the government is requiring you to cover a part of your body for the stated purpose of protecting the “good of society.” Do you think states have the right to impose such a mandate?
I brought this up in the personality type thread, but I think it deserves its own.
It is (imo) one of the better political quizzes out there.
If you're not familiar:
What is 8values?
外围体育投注8values is, in essence, a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!
What are the eight values?
There are four independent axes - Economic, Diplomatic, State, and Society - and each has two opposing values assigned to them. They are:
外围体育投注Equality (Economic) - Those with higher Equality scores believe the economy should distribute value evenly among the populace. They tend to support progressive tax codes, social programs, and at high values, socialism.
Markets (Economic) - Those with higher Market scores believe the economy should be focused on rapid growth. They tend to support lower taxes, privatization, deregulation, and at high values, laissez-faire capitalism.
As referenced here:
Trump came out with some statements which imply that Biden will "hurt god" or "hurt the bible". Whilst I'm unclear on the intent of these words, it's implied as an attack on Joe Biden's faith.
外围体育投注I believe that it's been a theme of Biden's career that he's relied on his faith to get him through personal tragedy - so I'm unsure how the criticism of Biden is founded.
外围体育投注Do you think that attacking someone's faith is crossing a line?
外围体育投注I went to the Donald Trump for President website to look up his agenda for his next term. I couldn't find anything about this on his website. They ask for money, there's various news articles and posts that are at least half about Joe Biden, they connect you with various special interest coalitions, and they connect you to a different website that shares details of his accomplishments over the first term. I could honestly not find any information on the Presidents campaign for re-election website that discusses the future and what he would do with another term in office. Am I just supposed to expect more of the same? What is Donald Trump's agenda for 2021-2025?
外围体育投注Normally tariffs must be approved by Congress except if the country in question is declared a national security threat, in which case they can be made unilaterally by the president. Additionally, a large Russia funded aluminum plant recently opened in Kentucky, of which a 40% stake is owned by Oleg Deripaska, accused money launderer and good friend of Putin.
Ret. Colonel Douglas Macgregor, Trump's nominee for the Ambassador to Germany, has faced in the media focusing on perceived .
外围体育投注That aside, while he has, like Trump himself, been a critic of the German government he would be interfacing with, he has also frequently praised Putin and justified the Russian annexation of Crimea:
外围体育投注He essentially echos all of the pro-Russia talking points regarding the invasion here. Note that he refers to the Ukraine as defined by the pre-2014 borders as a "construct" not a state.
After lavishing Putin with praise, he suggests that Trump offer a guarantee that Ukraine will stay out of NATO, remain neutral and free of any foreign military bases. Putin's concessions in the deal are, seemingly, to simply not invade the rest of Ukraine.
外围体育投注Given that Germany is the most important U.S. ally in the region, do you think he is a good choice for this ambassadorship?
外围体育投注How do you think his views align with the current U.S. policy on the annexation of Crimea, and Russia in general?
外围体育投注If they do not- do you think this signals a shift in U.S. policy towards Russia and NATO?
