"You don't convince your opposition to vote for you..."
Yes EXACTLY. Why do Democrats CONSTANTLY make appeals to the right, then?
Trapping them in what? Their supporters don't fucking care if they're hypocrites.
Please explain to me how allowing Republican plans to move forward is DEFENDING anything.
Appealing to the actions of stupid people in no way what so ever justifies their stupidity.
Do I seriously have to explain the, "if all your friends were jumping off a bridge..." thing in the year 2024?! I am literally describing to you how people are reactionary, and you go, "yea but people are reactionary!"
Thanks for failing to understand the point: Reactionary thought is stupid. I am calling that natural reaction stupid, because it is stupid. I don't care if it's natural. So is dying to a gunshot wound, but I'm still going to go to the hospital.
By perpetually treating Republicans like they are engaging in good faith, Democrats allow them to pull the Overton Window to the right. Again and again, and after decades of it, fascists are now being treated as if they weren't direct enemies of Americans less than 100 years ago.
Peoples' grandparents fought to keep these ideologies out of the world, and now Democrats are going, "wait wait, let them cook!"
I mean, what's that one complaint about electric cars?
Climate change and global warming are not localized to the Himalayas.
Do you think road safety standards are stringent just for fun? This is a category of products that can easily get people killed with flaws, you numpty.
Stop excusing people selling you garbage, you trash person. I have to assume your standards are trash if you will happily pay for trash.
Just don't buy the beer at walmart or they've lost basically nothing.
"I know that business is pouring poison in to the river, but you called me a dodo-head!"
Yes, children DO dismiss things for dumb reasons. Why are you taking behavioral lessons from children?
Civility politics belong in the wastebin of history. Civility politics is EXACTLY how you get American Liberals crying about decorum and only ever pointing at how bad conservarives are.
We DON'T CARE!! Get good things done and stop whining that bad people exist, ffs. The bad people want the bad things to happen, so stop listening to the excuses.
Stop treating domestic terrorists with kid gloves and maybe they'll be afraid to terrorize again.
