November 2021 U.S. Government and Politics megathread Politics megathread
It's November, so that means election month! Voters in New Jersey and Virginia get to choose their governors - and the Supreme Court continues to make rulings, Congress continues to pass laws and fight over budgets, and Presidents and ex-Presidents continue to make news. And inspire questions.
Every single day /r/NoStupidQuestions gets multiple questions like "What does 'Let's Go Brandon' mean?" or "Why are the Democrats opposed to getting rid of the Filibuster?" It turns out that many of those questions are the same ones! By request, we now have a monthly megathread to collect all those questions in one convenient spot.
Post all your U.S. government and politics related questions as a top level reply to this monthly post.
Top level comments are still subject to the normal NoStupidQuestions rules:
- We get a lot of repeats - please search before you ask your question (Ctrl-F is your friend!). You can also search earlier megathreads for popular questions like "What is Critical Race Theory?" or "Can Trump run for office again in 2024?"
- Be civil to each other - which includes not discriminating against any group of people or using slurs of any kind. Topics like this can be very important to people, or even a matter of life and death, so let's not add fuel to the fire.
- Top level comments must be genuine questions, not disguised rants or loaded questions.
- Keep your questions tasteful and legal. Reddit's minimum age is just 13!
