Don't blame me, I voted for the other guy. (Politics General)


@The Smiling Pony
Tbh I can’t blame them, especially when it feels that the people ostensibly on their side in the political party that ostensibly represents them, are actively conspiring against them and a focusing on woke shit that is of little practical benefit to them.

Bernie Sanders' fans aren't especially less woke than other progressive party factions; after taking heavy criticism for his supposed "tone deafness", he's changed his tune (or at least made some gestures in that direction), and he's also been heavily supported by AOC in this cycle. The only candidates who can reasonably be called conservative on social issues are maybe Gabbard (out and never had any pull) and Biden (the stale pale male).

But as much as Biden gets a bad rap in Internet circles, most people who voted voted for him. Most Americans are not so poor that they'll get behind radical economic change. Economic populism isn't actually that popular.

No, not a joke.

On November 3, 2017, Paul was assaulted by a neighbor, Rene Boucher (then aged 59), a retired anesthesiologist. Paul, who is deaf in one ear, was wearing noise-cancelling headphones while mowing his lawn, enabling Boucher to blindside Paul.

Boucher was arrested and charged with one count of fourth-degree assault and released on a $7,500 bond. Paul sustained five broken ribs, of which three were displaced fractures. Boucher's attorney, Matthew Baker, described it as "a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial". The dispute was over Paul repeatedly leaving tree yard debris in view of his neighbor.

Boucher was originally charged in Kentucky state court, but was later charged in federal court, where he ultimately pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress. Boucher was sentenced to 30 days in prison, one year of probation, 100 hours of community service, and a $10,000 fine; prosecutors had sought a 21-month term and have appealed the sentence. The state-court charge was dismissed after Boucher pleaded guilty to the federal charge. On January 30, 2019, a jury awarded Paul $582,834 for punitive damages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses; Boucher's attorney indicated he would appeal.

In August 2019, part of Paul's lung required removal as a result of the injuries he suffered during the attack.

If his immune system doesn't win the first battles and the illness proceeds to pneumonia, he'll be in far more trouble that others in his age group.

Remember the time Rand Paul flew to Canada for back surgery after saying Canada’s healthcare system was horrible and socialist?

To be fair to him, though, there aren’t many surgeons that can do back surgery on a man without a spine.
