What was Putin’s Motivation to Invade Ukraine?

What was Putin’s motivation to invade Ukraine?

What evidence do you have to support that belief?

(I’m not asking whether invading Ukraine was moral or right. Rather WHY did he do it?)

Is there a good source (with references) that compiles all the terrible things Trump has said/done?

I'm writing a letter to my father to explain to him why trying to convince me/my kids that Trump isn't a bad person is a losing battle that will only isolate him from his grandkids. He's otherwise a reasonably rational guy, but only gets his information from Fox news.

I would like to include a well-documented (with primary sources or center/right sources that he won't immediately dismiss) list of horrible things Trump has done and said, but it's rather overwhelming. Is there a good source that helps keep track of all this?

Is there still hope for any of Trump's trials?

What if the supreme court refuses to take up the immunity case? Is the trial back on? Is there any way they can still happen before the election?

I fear like a conviction is our only hope of turning around voters at this point.

It’s mind blowing how many people that want to vote for Trump and republicans for economic issues despite them winning power after a Obama took 8 years to clean up the economy from their last economic failure.

From social media to real life every encounter I’ve talked or heard of someone wanting to vote Republican is because of “ Trump luxurious economy “. Like do people not realize what president set up the 2016-19 economic success ???

Do you think trump is going to win?

For the last year i was almost convinced that Trump will be taken of the ballot or in prison and if he wasn’t he didn’t have chance to win but now im really not sure, most social media is full of trump supporters, also i know a lot of people irl that are openly supporting putin, im really losing hope, what are your thoughts? Is it just some loud minority thing or are we fucked?

ELI5. Why don't people like Kamala Harris?

With all the stuff going on about Biden's and Trump's mental fitness, we have Kamala Harris who's the vice president and she seems perfectly fine I would be perfectly happy if she were the president. She seems to have her shit together and I know that she was a prosecutor in California but you know everybody's going to have bullshit like that. I personally was an Elizabeth Warren fan in 2019 during the primaries but I would have been perfectly happy with Kamala Harris, still would be. Is it sexist bullshit that she rubs people the wrong way or what? Is it just racist crap cuz she's a person of color. Certainly with all this stuff about Biden's age you'd think that they would promote her more or something I don't know what the deal is.

Looking to move from TX to more liberal area - maybe Denver, Portland, OR, or Vancouver, WA

I want to move to a more liberal area. Currently I live north of Dallas, TX. The Denver/Aurora Colorado area is sunny and sounds nice, but I’m not sure if I want six feet of snow every year.

I’ve visited the pacific NW many times. It’s so beautiful, I’m considering the Portland, Oregon/Vancouver WA area. The temperatures are moderate, and I love the scenery. Not sure how it is living with so much cloudy weather though.

Do you live in these areas or have you lived there in the last 5 years? If so, do you have any recomendations/tips?

More gaslighting from media executive at CNN: Republicans oversampled by 10%, show Trump “leading”

https://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/24400249/cnn-poll-trump-narrowly-leads-biden-in-general-election-rematch.pdf

In this poll, they picked 29% Democrats, undersampling Democrats by 4%, and they picked 31% Republicans, oversampling Republicans by 6%.

Net oversample of Republicans: 10%

It’s right there on Page 23. Yet the LIARS at CNN keep telling the public that the results of the poll accurately reflects public opinion.

Question for those who actively troll elected officials on social media

Do you do it through a fake account? If yes, do you have multiple fake accounts? And why do you go to all this trouble?

I'm just now learning that some people do just this, and it seems like a lot of work to me. Just curious....

The Conservatives from the Bush admin are famously described as "Neocons". How would you describe Conservatives from the Trump era, like Desantis and Ted Cruz?

What liberal podcasts do you listen to?

I'd love an intelligent liberal version of Joe Rogan but I'm open to all recommendations.
