You can say what you want about democrats, HOWEVER...



Add The Road to the list now that the horror shit show far right extremist SCOTUS has killed environmental protections, and pretty much there if the GOP get their way. They offer no nope - just destruction and regression.

1. And idiots said Hillary was just the same as that orange turd.

If I were to ever see Susan Sarandon in person, I'd be tempted to do something mildly violent. Or at the very least scream, "Murderer!" at her.

10. The Kochs want to be king.

They have a plan, they always do. They've been working it for over 40 years.

The faster we address psychopathic billionaires, the faster we get what we want.

Start with enforcing the Sherman anti-trust act, then tax these fascists the way FDR did, pass laws and fund the country in a way the MAJORITY want.

17. "If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself." Herman Cain

His money couldn't save him from his stupidity.

Integrity, charity, and happiness are the attributes of the rich.

The monetarily wealthy hate anyone that posess these, because you can't buy it. You either have it or you don't.

21. YEP

there are SO many people around me, otherwise decent people, who have been completely brainwashed and know full well that the republican party offers nothing but tearing it all down, and they are COMPLETELY on board because LIBERALS.

They have absolutely no capacity to see how it will effect them and their loved ones over time ...

It is just all about the evil liberal boogyman.

This is a desperate attempt to keep the repuke party to remain relevant.
Their message of christofascism and racist hate is not selling.

13. As you have said, PA Rethug gubernatorial candidate Mastriano vows to subvert the electoral vote.

You correctly pointed out in another thread that Mastriano has indicated that, if he is elected governor of PA, he will take matters into his own hands if the PA popular presidential vote is for the Democratic candidate, whereupon he will approve an alternate slate of electors who will cast their votes for the Rethug candidate.

Attributed to him, anyway:

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything."

Also expected to be the law of the Soviet States of America.

11. Sometimes I wonder if simply campaigning wouldn't be easier than all of these games they play.

Then I remember how filled with hate for anyone even one iota different than the majority of them, the GrOPpers are and I realize they will never be anything resembling a big tent.

They arenít inclusive because they canít be inclusive.

Any time they bray about how many of this or that group are supporting them itís actually even more -isms. They still categorize these people as the others and will turn on them once they feel they are no longer useful.

16. Next year SCOTUS will take up a case that would give more authority

to state LEGISLATURES to decide presidential elections. This would presumably be in place for the 2024 election. This is on top of SCOTUS's newly very aggressive actions, no longer cautious or incremental, to use their power to impose a tyranny of a far-right majority.

Presidential historian Michael Beschloss said last night that he's now very worried that 2020 could have been our last free election.

They're not playing games. They can't win fair elections, so they're moving to eliminate them.

A lapse, if it came to it, would only be that.

of the country wants the dystopian nightmare, as long as it's someone else's nightmare and they are the one's creating it.
It's the pain and it's infliction on the people conservatives hate that it's all about. Conservatism is a disease.

19. I've been wondering: what IS the actual religion that...

...accounts for and represents everything the GOP, as it were, has actually enacted?

And don't futz with me, I've read most of the Old Testament and all of the New, and I ain't seeing it.

as a driving force. Their movement is basically secular cultural, and now class, warfare with religious excuses.

22. Many "valid criticisms" aren't valid. Accusing them of being the same as Republicans

or doing nothing when they don't have the votes, they're all corrupted by campaign contributions, that there are easy solutions and Democrats refuse to do them, all it takes is the right leadership and messaging and if you just explain things people will understand, Biden promised something.

And on the other side is the dystopian hellscape.
