That one is pretty bizarre.  I'm thinking the Republicans will win.

I think they already have. They took legislation that was probably never going to pass and turned it into a major PR win among their constituents.

I'm also thinking this is roughly how impeachement will play out of the US House goes that route.

While I applaud the move on reddit's part, I can only wonder why it took them so long.

There have been threats and calls to violence on that sub way before.
