I don't get it

Republicans/Conservatives talk the most trash and are always disparaging democrats/liberals. They never compromise or try to get to know us. They fight us on EVERYTHING and all things are political to them. They spread hate and misinformation. But somehow it’s always up to the Democrats to find common ground and compromise, or to get to know and understand Trump voters. And anytime Democrats fight back we get labeled as the party unwilling to work together.

This why the MSM is complicit in destroying democracy

CNN front page using words like “Democrats fail to advance national protections” and “Democrats didn’t have enough support in their own party”…..when they should be saying “republicans obstruct” or “Republicans block voting rights”…..I really hate the media

Manchin and Sinema's dumb argument about

The filibuster leading to bipartisanship and compromise. I contend that having the filibuster leads to more partisanship and not compromising because the minority knows that they don’t have to and can hold up legislation. Getting rid of the filibuster incentivized the minority to compromise so that they can at least try to shape a bill that will get passed anyway.

How are Biden's Covid numbers slipping

It’s like Biden is trying to put out a fire to a building, and the people who live in the building refuse to come out, and the person who started the fire has also blocked the path to the fire hydrant…and then they blame Biden for not getting them out or putting out the fire

Tired of the false narrative

For the last 40 plus years the republicans have lived in their right wing bubble. They have demonized liberals/democrats with name calling, lies, and propaganda that included hate talk radio, drudge/Briebert, and foxnews. They are the loud mouths who have constantly made everything political. They are the ones who have constantly showed off their hate and politics by their stupid car bumper stickers and flags….they have treated Democrats as the enemy not their fellow countrymen…..and finally democrats have decided to fight back…..:and somehow liberals are getting labeled as the people who can’t get along with the other side and looks down on them and the ones dividing this is country….I have heard those sentiments expressed by two supposed liberals or democrats (bill Maher and tulsi gabbard)….

Republicans latest M.O.

Block and oppose Democratic bills and say that the democrats are acting alone and the bill is socialism. When the bill finally passes, they put out statements insinuating that they are responsible for bringing in money to their state/district, money that is related to the bill. When they get called out for it they say that they supported that part of the bill and had a hand in making sure that it was part of it, but voted no because they didn’t support the rest of it….they did it with this year’s Covid bill and now the infrastructure bill.

I don't get Democratic leaning voters who aren't fired up to vote

I don’t get how Democratic voters and so-called “moderates/independents” can either vote for republicans or not vote at all after seeing what happened after the election last year… These voters expected Biden to become president and solve all the country’s problems right away and now they are ready to turn the country back over to the republicans…..don’t they see that we barely averted a fascist trump takeover….we barely hung on due to a few democrats who held governorships, or who were sec of states or attorney generals….and a few republicans and judges who decided to do the right thing…..but there were so many Republicans in power who were willing to go along with the take over, and now we are giving Republicans even more power, if 2022 goes bad for the Democrats then the 2024 election doesn’t matter because this time around there will be too many Republicans in power who are going to be willing to go along….this isn’t going to be like ‘96 or ‘12 when Clinton and Obama took a beating during the primaries but were still re-elected, the Republicans are going to build an apparatus where they get the presidency whatever it takes

This is why Republicans are good at messaging

This isn’t a post peddling right wing talking points. It’s a post about how Democrats need to dumb down their message and stick to scripts like this. Republicans are good at saying simple bullshit like this and having all its members regurgitate it over and over and over wherever they go.
They have been doing the same crap for 40 years now and it works, while Democrats talk to professorial. I can watch a dozen news shows on Sunday and every single Republican will say the same exact thing, while Democrats go on shows and all are saying the same thing, but it sounds different because they aren’t regurgitating the same words.

We learned that parents should be empowered to make decisions about their children's education, not the federal government. We learned that Americans want more jobs, not more government welfare and reckless spending creating inflation. Americans want to fund their police departments, not defund them. Americans want freedom, not far-left socialism," House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) told reporters.

"This is the message that united Americans across the country from New Jersey to New York to Virginia to Texas and united Americans behind Republicans last night. ... Republicans are the party of parents, of education, of small businesses, of freedom and family. Democrats are the party of big government socialism, creating crisis after crisis."
