2. A lady/girl I knew in high school that admits she has voted mostly Republican, wrote a long

FB post today saying she had been criticized for expressing her opinion on the upcoming general election.

Several of the white wingers criticized her. She wrote back that she was getting off FB until election, and then said it is disgustingly clear trump is a racist, misogynist, incompetent, and worse. She worked for the State Department and lived in several foreign countries. She says all her foreign friends laugh at trump, her and the USA for electing the “buffoon” (her word).

I was so surprised and think a lot of GOPers will defect. Some might change their mind in voting booth, but a lot have had it with trump. Hope it causes them to look down ballot too.

3. Sorry to be this way (not really) but fuck all y'all.

Only stupid people voted for OrangeAnus in 2016. Fuck you for assisting in this shit we are in now. Feeling sorry now will not bring back the 145 THOUSAND people who have died because of YOUR vote.

Bet you are still going to vote for those "good republicans", right? Get this straight idiots, THERE ARE NO GOOD REPUBLICANS!!!

4. "If you want to lead, you have to listen" is an old slogan

Our task before November is to redefine the center: we need to listen and learn and use what we can, in good conscience, use

6. Different views are appropriate in different contexts

For some folk, I probably should adopt the view Revenge is a dish best served cold

For most, however, I expect that I should attempt to cultivate a thick skin and a short memory

You may (of course) proceed as you want -- but I will try to carefully consider what approach gives us the best chance of actually having a country after mid January 2021

8. with some exceptions....


.... this thread proves one thing to me. The one thing that triggers the Hate O Rama among liberals more than an avid trump supporter is a trump supporter who realizes their mistakes, and seeks forgiveness and offers atonement.

When are these people going to learn that the left does not need nor want them and do not have the time nor tolerance for this shit.

....rinse, repeat.

9. See, the thing is

they haven't "repented" at all. They will STILL vote republican, just not THIS republican. There is ONE common enemy. They will still (more than likely, IMO) vote for all our OTHER enemies.

10. Speculation

You can't state that as a fact. In the meantime, they count as another vote for Biden, or one less vote for trump. I would venture a guess that no one here at Democratic Underground knows any of these people personally, with no real insight as to what they will do in the future, therefore, not knowing if they will end up on the good side or the bad side, I would be loathe to prejudge and condemn them. I would wager that after 4 years of trump, many of these people will be asking themselves what the hell they were thinking, and after realizing they made a monumentally bad judgment call will say to themselves " Never again! Of course, you and others who think as you do are free to prejudge and condemn people without proof, especially since any proof one way or the other has not happened yet.

They are also free to stick to the republican values as long as those values do not extend to trump or his bootlickers.

13. So what?

I disagreed with your opinion, which I found unfairly judgemental with no grounds to support it, and no one in the whole wide world will know if there are grounds to support your opinion, or prove it wrong simply because there have been no grounds established yet. Well, unless you have a crystal ball.

12. And you ARE correct. I am FREE to judge and condemn repugs without proof.

And I DO condemn them for being stupid fucking repugs. Don't like my opinion of REPUGs, mute me.
