Because somebody suggested it. Argue respectful and please source as much as possible.
This thread is to discuss the current American Government. From the primaries on 2015 through the election, the country has lost its damn mind and people in it too. With the election of Trump, things have gotten even more interesting. This place is to discuss things. This place is going to have civil discussion. If you're posting in this thread, take some time to read the rules. Following there will be a set of rules unique to this thread:
1) Source your claims as much as possible. There's a lot of information being spread around and quoted second to third hand. If you're able to get the article containing the information you speak of, please post it so everybody can be on the same page.
2) Attack the information on the article not the source. As of right now there are various arguments on which are valid sources. Because nobody could come up with a good list of worthwhile sources, quote things and post them so that #1 can happen. Attacking the source gets you jailed for free, getting caught doing it multiple times, or refusing to read something because of where it came from gets you clapped too. Don't go ridiculous quoting Stormfront or any obviously dumb site. But there is a lot of citizen journalism going on and if they offer something worthwhile, it should be examined and critiqued fairly.
4) Keep things as civil as possible. Excessive flaming is going to get addressed. What's excessive? Whatever based on the situation. I let a lot of random for fun trolling because the situation is currently nonsense. Don't tip things into abusive.
3) I'm going to label all posts that involve me modding the thread with "This is a Mod Post". Any post having that header is not up for discussion. If it means move along or cease a behavior, it needs to happen ASAP. This type of threads weren't allowed in GD for a reason. Right now it exists solely at my discretion and only because of my kindness. If I need things to change when I come in, it just happens. Nothing following the words "This is a Mod Post" is up for discussion. It it really bothers you, PM your concerns.
