So get ready. We will see things get worse.
I hojestly believe we will barely see things get worse. With the ongoing march of tech censorship, it will be very hard to see indeed.

the Obama administration was perfectly fine with Russia's annexation of Crimea because the US was too busy to defend a non-NATO nation.
Obama administration caused it by supporting a (far-right) coup of ukraine. They were not fine with russia's retaliation.

Unpopular opinion but I liked Obama. He didn’t fuck anything up that directly effected me and quite frankly that’s all that really matters. My concern with Biden is the aforementioned loss of certain free speech that may happen.
Obamacare was the reason why businesses were so reluctant to hire all throughout the Great Recession. Why? Because businesses did--and still do--everything they could to avoid paying for health insurance. Thus, businesses looked for all kinds of loopholes to avoid having 50 employees at a time. When asked about it, Obama gave his "magic wand" speech to dismiss these concerns.

On the personal level, the individual mandate required you to have health insurance or pay the increasing tax penalty for not having it, typically around a few thousand dollars. The highly politicized pre-existing conditions weren't just insurance companies not wanting to pay; it was the basis of underwriting itself. Since Obama wanted everyone to have affordable coverage, premiums had to go up for everyone to pay for a service you may or may not want. Because at the end of the day, health insurance has to be expensive to pay for teams of specialist doctors, the nurse's union, the technicians that run tests, the administrators that exist so that nurses don't get too bogged down in administrative tasks, and the insurance companies themselves.

So his governance did effect you. You just weren't paying attention.

Cope with it the same way you should deal with anything, expect and prepare for the absolute worst because that's more than likely what will happen. I'm talking detainment camps, people vanishing, secret police, people having their property seized for supporting trump, north Korea levels of corruption and suffering. And if you expect that and it doesn't come to pass, then at least you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Eh people hype up the chinese more than they're worth. They'll continue fucking us over sure. But they aren't going to take direct control and dominate us anytime soon. We're still vital to them and they project a much more stable image than is actually the case internally.
The problem is not that China can do all this if they want, but that everybody seems intent on making sure China can do what they want. The news that China has concentration camps and nearly two million spies out there is met with a collective meh.

This thread is trash and full of people who will be in denial all of Biden's presidency.

Enjoy being more miserable than you were in the last 4 years because "I can't say Jews are bad on Twitter dot com!".
Dude, weren't you the one saying there was 100% chance of civil war 3 months ago? Also also the guy who ragequitted the website then made another account because you got too miserable?

I’m white so I’ve never really had a business that was reluctant to hire me. In fact if I recall correctly I believe at one point I brazenly quit a retail job during that administration telling my boss “I’ll have a better job in a week.” Suffice to say I only had to wait roughly two days to get an interview and was hired on the spot for a much easier job that paid twice as much. See, there’s a little secret to getting a job a lot of people seem to be unaware of, but fortunately for you I’m willing to spill the beans. So here it is. All you have to do is dress appropriately, bathe yourself, be polite and professional, and most importantly you actually have to... y’know, apply for jobs. In fact now that I think of it I’m not sure I know anybody personally who could claim to have actually been looking for a job during the Obama administration and say they had trouble. Seems like more of a you problem really.

Most westerners don't care that much about ethnic cleansing/genocide half a world away until it gets turned into a movie. Basic bitch conservatives don't even really care about the Uyigurs, they just needed a clap back to the sports leagues and corporations shilling for China while demonizing the West. We could have mass political imprisonment in the US and the average person would shrug it off as a "hoax" or whatever other bullshit the media would feed them. We aren't destined to be ruled by China, we're destined to become China.

How long do you think it’ll be before that happens?

Hey OP? Tune out politics for a while. Go pet a cat or dog, try to do something in your life that helps both you and others, and most importantly, stop taking the media bait. The world isn't going to go up in flames because a bunch of politically radical shit is on the table and in the process of being discussed. Put down the blackpill, and go smoke a bowl or some shit, it sounds like you could use a blowjob, a valium, and a beer in any order that seems right.

You could've just said "just watch the world burn since this is out of your control" and have a better effect.

So far it's looking like the geriatric democrats are already giving up on lockdowns, or are at least claiming the country needs to reopen, so that's one less concern. Free speech being obliterated is happening as I type this however. All we can do is sit back, relax, and buy party supplies.

Yep. That was the way they were working to oust Trump, and they succeeded.

No idea and I don't think anyone does. 2030 seems to be the goal for a lot of the NGOs and internationalists, but Trump threw a wrench in the works. People(myself included) thought he would be the force that pushed this stuff off. Like a late Roman emperor holding things together and repairing some of the damage for a time. The opposite happened, whether he intended or not, and now every force working to strip our freedoms and send us into a dystopia thinks they have the Casus Belli to go all in. The good news is that a lot of that momentum is based off of them deriving the public consciousness from what kicks up hundreds of thousands of likes on Twitter rather than the on the ground reality. The bad news is it seems like the average person just doesn't care about the real issues, how much of Trump's support are people who think this will all tie into a nice Hollywood ending with the hero saving them all? They lack the will and/or purpose to fight for themselves and their people. And the few who do are unable to organize and are surrounded by speds and fags who don't actually believe in the ideals they argue about(see: the altright, conspiracy theorists, the far left).

We won't completely copy china. You'll be much more likely to get raped/killed by diversity here than there.

Won't work due to mask mandate and Boomers increasingly worried about their health. Businesses losing a whole quarter, perhaps another at minimum is too much of a setback for them, especially when BLM can randomly destroy a store with immunity to the legal consequences.

Seems like there are a lot of people in this thread who would rather blame anyone but themselves for their own inability to get a job. How very typical.

You forget the dems are in control now so the boomers will be sacrificed and BLM will get the Nixon treatment and all will be swept under the rug. They risk the next election if both of these continue by 2022.
