Leftists actually ARE shooting people, and their base doesn't care. They're cheering.Remember the Fifth Avenue Rule. He could shoot somebody and they wouldn't care.And the result is .......... Millions of millions of Americans suffering from total disaster:Unlike the Democrats, we on the right seen our party going in the wrong direction, and that's why we voted for Trump. It was a protest vote; a message we were (and are) hoping the GOP hears. We like this drop in border crossings, we don't want any stupid immigration reform, we want people running for office to give us what they promised, or at least try to.Yeah, I keep a pretty close eye on the younger Dems, and I know they're pretty pissed right now. They saw Bernie get pushed out by the baby boomer Dems twice now, and even some of them are pissed at HIM for not fighting more against the Dem establishment. And I do really do get the feeling that, once the Bidens and Pelosis have taken a hike, the party is going to change.We'll see. I can make the argument that the moderates on the Democratic party side are the exact reason the party is in the position it's in. As you said, not enough of a contrast. On top of that, the older baby boomers in the party just don't seem to be able to fight a ground war against Trump and his supporters on their terms. And I lay the entire fault for that at the feet of the baby boomers that just will not leave and allow some fresh blood out front. Yes, I'll be consistent that I want to see both Republican and Democrat baby boomer politicians taking a hike. I think you would be surprised what we could get done as a country. The basic problem is that most of our country's problems can't be solved with soundbites, memes, gifs, and one or two word slogans. And that is the hallmark of right wing in this country. Unfortunately, it's what the Republican party has become.This is just a guess, of course, but somewhere around 48% of those who vote in November will be voting for Donald Trump. Without going into the laundry list of obvious examples or any of the standard talking points, there are certainly plenty of reasons not to. Yet he has a perfectly reasonable chance of winning.
Right now, polls show that about 43% of Americans approve of the job he's doing. This, after everything that has happened, and that number should be a very sobering indication of where this country is right now. Personally, I try to understand how these people can do this, but I still only understand some of it.
Anyway, here's the point: Elections are about contrasts. Choices. How can that many people support this disaster of a person? For many of them, they're looking at the alternative. And when those who provide their information and opinions for them point at things like PC and Identity Politics and Cancel Culture and an overall culture in decay, they can make reasonable points not to vote for the Democratic party. Even with, amazingly, this profoundly damaged person in the White House.
It's certainly too late to make any changes before November, but the Democratic party had a chance to take over the middle, and I don't see that happening. There is no excuse, zero, none, for the race to be this close. Regardless of who wins, the Democrats have too often allowed the wrong voices to represent them. It allows the Trumpsters to tie all the silliest crap coming from the hardcore Left to the milquetoast, feeble Biden.
This should be a learning experience, but I'm doubtful.
One thing I also find interesting is how the GOP establishment lost control of the party and it belched out Trump, while the Dem establishment was able to hold off Bernie and his supporters. This is a profoundly transitional moment for both parties - Trump is an ugly, clownish one-off, and the Dem establishment is about to topple. I definitely get the feeling there is a "next" on the way.
We on the right made change. We put a successful multi-billionaire in charge of our party, and you put a cocktail waitress in charge of yours.
3. Losing health coverage.
4. Business closures.
7. DEATHS AT 200,000+ and counting.
8. Infections of 7+ millions and counting.
Sooooo what is the plan smart guy? Don’t tell me you want the same ugly bad person who created this pandemonium?
Your lousy dude said mask is not good because a waitress told him. He even mocked Biden for wearing a mask.
Did you ever imagine that the Rule would come so close to reality? He really knows his fans, give him that.
Does it hurt to be this dishonest and hypocritical?
