But Cruz is from a real country that gave up his citizenship to be 'Murican.

He doesn't draw strength from land of bacon and hockey.

I don't care that she's a Muslim, I do care that she's a Socialist.

Congress needs more Libertarians, both major parties suck.


More of this. Both major parties deserve to take a back seat.

Certainly I have no issue with a muslim woman being elected to any office. However, it seems as though the trend is to elect certain groups of people to office simply because they are muslim or a woman or some other perceived "minority" that is completely made up out of thin air - and that is just as idiotic as being against them because of some irrelevant label.

Whatever happened to electing leaders that actually had good ideas. Hell, at this point I'd settle for just one good idea from any elected official. The problem is politics is an art and not a science. And these people are pretty much put in place to sell the ideas of a small group of controlling elite. That is their only purpose. And yet people go head over heels for them for some insane reason.

The controlling elite are loving this resurgence of the identity politics model like they had in place in the "good old days" under the religious right. Now they get to put everyone under their thumb and save their precious money at the same time.

Wonder if anyone has talked to John Conyers about her win? He must be really vibrating.

If anything she should be at least as entertaining as Maxine, Sheila and Barbara giving speeches on the floor but might just bring some thought provoking insight to that body.

Libertarians are like house cats. They are are like house cats. They are Completely dependent on others, but fully convinced of their own independence.

"Liberals" should do like Obama and put her in power not because of qualifications or anything like that, but simply because shes a Muslim. Because that method just totally makes sense.

Great win but I hope she knows to keep religion out of her politics. I hate when politicians use their religion to force BS on the people. We already have a few Christian fanatics in office, we do not need another religious idiot in office, no matter the religion.

Female genital mutilation?


We already chops dudes junk, how you with that?


Arranged marriages/underage marriages


Don't care about arranged, you can always bail when you're an adult and the time rolls around. Underage is already permitted with parental consent.


Sharia courts?


That piece of paper the Founding Guys wrote says 'no' Sharia for the masses. If you want to voluntarily have some Sharia Cleric tell you what to do how do you stop that?


People will say it doesn't matter that she's a Muslim, I disagree.


People say I shouldn't worry about wacko Christian extremists like Ted Wacko Cruz the Dominionist too. All religious wackos are bad.


You like to come over as the site comedian but sometimes you just come across as a total dickhead.

Sorry but forced marriage? Genital mutilation?

The USA turned into a Mad Max world is the end result


America is a mad max world already because of capitalism, you people are crazy. We need socialism to stop business from raping and destroying everything in existence, which they are close to succeeding at.

Ms. Tlaib’s mother draped her in the Palestinian flag as she spoke.


Was She standing on the American flag?

I like that.

I agree about both parties but both here affiliations concern me.
What is her stance on:
Female genital mutilation?
Arranged marriages/underage marriages
Sharia courts?
People will say it doesn't matter that she's a Muslim, I disagree.

Following the game plan .. Once there are enough they go for getting elected so their particular brand of politics can be espoused and pushed. Just look at France and their inability to pass a minimum age for sex with a child.


Childrens’ rights groups criticised Emmanuel Macron’s government for failing to provide a legal
age of consent to protect children, pointing to the recent decision by French courts to refuse to
prosecute two pedophiles for the rape of 11-year-old girls because authorities couldn’t prove the
children did not consent.

The French child protection associations are demanding that Macron’s government revoke the Schiappa
law and establish a legal age of consent under which any sexual act involving an adult and a child will
constitute rape.

The abandonment of a legal age of consent has shocked French society.
The controversial bill had focused on an appropriate threshold for an age of consent -13 or 15 years.
However, the choice was made to abandon the principle of a minimum age.

France tightens rules on sex with minors but stops short of creating a legal age of consent.
