I think Dems [View all]

Have been too complacent and nice to republicans too willing to compromise and let republicans and rightward democrats like turncoat manchin hobble bills that would help the people more.

Sometimes you have to say no more and push back ruthlessly even if it means the holdout suffers publicly or otherwise. There has to be a way for Dems to get the right out of the party or at least neuter it. People farther left than the Dems have warned the Dems of what republicans were scheming for decades.

Bush was the test for negating an election to favor the minority and Dems didn’t insist the ballots be counted fully because republicans were having temper tantrums and causing chaos.

We need to ignore republican Ken’s and Karen’s and stick to counting all the damn ballots.

When the Supreme Court ruled for bush it showed the republicans could undermine the fair vote to get what they want ,minority rule.

I bet they plan to do the same shit if they see they are going to lose . Whine for the Supreme Court to intervene and lie and say they won the election so the magats have temper tantrums and cause chaos and possibly violence.

Biden has to be strong and never compromise with republicans regarding the election. To do so would end democracy.

So Biden needs to demand every ballot be counted and not let the republicans scuttle deciding the election to the right corrupted stacked partisan Supreme Court insist on following the constitution to the very end regardless of chaos and temper tantrums or even violence.

He needs to loudly publicly condemn it all and blame the people causing it and the republicans and call out the organizations and rich individuals orchestrating it..

Fuck them if these right wing fuckers get offended.
