The president can now pardon himself for war crimes.

1.) That isn't a pardon. It's a part of a piece of legislation proposed and approved(?) by the Legislative branch of the U.S. government. It is not a violation of a separation of powers, it is two powers protecting each other.

2.) Shit happens. Everyone knows the winners write the rules. Nobody ever expected Bush or Clinton to hang.

3.) This is a Democracy. You didn't vote against him hard enough.

4.) I, personally, didn't vote. I did this as a show of no confidence for our all-or-nothing system. Therefore I, doing the honorable thing and showing no part of this injustice, am not liable.

5.) YOU, on the other hand, placed your confidence in the current system. The system failed. You put your faith in it. I put my faith in failure.

6.) Me: 1

7.) You: 0

8.) Bush: everything else

BTW:

That isn't a pardon

For us leftists, this also doesn't apply to international law. So there's that. Think you can get a rich white man to hang in Switzerland? Do it!

9.) Shut up.

It'd be great if he got extradited.

I find it very unlikely you pay zero taxes and make no use of public works. You are as much a part of this injustice as any other citizen. If it makes you feel better to think that you aren't participating, that's fine, but it is also very naive.
