    Another billionaire peddling culture war garbage so he can pass tax cuts for his friends. It's just funny watching right wingers time after time expect billionaires to save them. It's just hilarious watching the grift.

    I agree identity politics are a huge problem... But corporate tax rates are just details? Seems disingenuous.

    I don't see him as a viable Presidential candidate, but he can be a thought leader within the conservative movement. He can add a lot to influence the dialogue. He is ultra-high IQ and an excellent communicator... and has had tremendous success in business. He's an impressive, accomplished individual -- which is what we need more of in government. The opposite would be people like Kamala Harris and Ketanji Brown Jackson, who are utterly incompetent and low-IQ but check various diversity/identity boxes.

    Indians and Asians get a totally raw deal on the affirmative action issue. They are discriminated against because of their success -- which is terribly wrong.

    Don't speak for Asians man. Though some South Asians would like your style of racism many of us don't.

    Huh? I am opposed to the racism that is practiced against Asians and Indians via affirmative action.

    How does a president revive faith? Seems out of the purview of presidential powers?
    Is he trying to become a fascist president?

    Like I said I oppose your style of racism. White racists have used this tactic for centuries. Peg one group against another group.

    Asians and Indians mostly got here through a selection filter. Most of us or at least our parents came from privilege back in their respective home countries. Many of the racist South Asians forget to tell you that.

    American immigration process doesn't just let any Asians in to the country. Most of them came because they got some sort of student visa or high skilled work visa which means they came from a family that could afford the top private grade schools back in the country of origin as most kids in south Asia who attend generic public schools are poor and have zero shot at ever being sponsored by a American university.

    His campaign is going to be DOA but it's a good sign that more sensible, pragmatic conservatives are stepping forward.

    It's also sad that someone like that is the sensible Republican. We don't live in the 50s. Gen Z and millennials don't fall for simple platitudes like "reviving faith and patriotism". Remember they don't have lead gas poisoning. Also gen Z and millennials see the word "entrepreneur" as their primary job title they see a giant red flag of "grifter"

    If you believe the polls, it's Biden v Trump in 2024.

    how is Brown Jackson “utterly incompetent”?

    I agree that Kamala appears lost, and both were selected in part because of their gender and race. But explain to me how Brown Jackson utterly incompetent.

    Ya I don't understand the low IQ part especially Brown Jackson.

    @Trader_Jorge is this a racism you doing? Is she low IQ because of her skin color? Because we need an explanation of how you evaluated her IQ and concluded its low.

    The sheer volume of questions she could not answer during her confirmation hearings was staggering. She didn't even know the basis for the Dred Scott decision! Which is particularly appalling given that she was ostensibly put on the court to provide African American representation.

    Also, she is hiding her LSAT scores... which usually isn't done if you aced it...

    1. Are lsat scores a common ask of supreme court justice nominees? If not why was it an ask specifically for this nominee?

    2. Are there ways to get magna c*m laude that aren't purely gpa and class rank based in Harvard Law?

    Sorry man you gotta do more than just these stupid talking points to convince us your low IQ claims of Ketanji Brown Jackson arent based in racism.

    How many other magna c*m laude graduates of ivy league schools do you label as low IQ?


    Also Clutchfans censorship AI, "c*m" doesn't always have to be in reference to the biological substance.

    If you can get through 40+ hours of questions from Congress about the law and have your highlight be not remembering Dred Scott you probably did OK.

    Also, are you familiar with the LSAT? It has no law in it. It's basically a gigantic logic puzzle that tests how fast you can recognize patterns. It's not an IQ test. All it tells us is how good you are at taking the LSAT.
