What is a Conservative Democrat

| October 27, 2020

It should be clarified that in the democratic party, being a conservative means more being a cultural conservative, not an economic conservative. If you were a free market, laissez-faire type, you’d be a republican. A conservative democrat won’t chimp in anger because someone says “god.” they won’t praise abortion as a great accomplishment, like winning […]

On Court Packing

| October 27, 2020

I don’t want the court packed immediately. I do want the threat that Democrats can pack the court, if they do win, to act in a way to keep the court from pushing a political agenda. edit: I hope the threat that the court could be packed keeps the court acting constitutional. That’s my position […]

Why Republicans and Trump Don’t Back Labor

| October 26, 2020

The reason Trump will never back labor, nor will Republicans, is because the last thing he wants is his own employees being sort of able to act bold, able to walk out, not being basically submissive slaves. If Trump puts in pro labor bills, pro collective bargaining, ubi, makes it more difficult to fire people […]

The Split

| October 26, 2020

There was a period of time between the first George Bush up to Obama (which includes Clinton) where Democrats and Republicans sort of became a single party. You couldn’t tell the difference. But that is over. They’re splitting off again.

Hate or Just Dislike Trump?

| October 26, 2020

I don’t think I hate Trump quite as much as liberal Democrats do. I think he made a big mistake not taking corona seriously, and he’s on the wrong side of labor and class issues. His foreign policy is insincere. But there have been blunders before Trump. edit: To put it another way, I could […]

Wokeness Acceleration

| October 26, 2020

Me too and black lives matter came within an inch of destroying the Democratic Party chances. Back in the day, Howard Dean called Republicans the “white christian party” and that was as far as it went, but now liberals live their entire life around calling people racist. Did you know that the south used to […]

The Rallying vs. The Tent

| October 26, 2020

What amazes me about Republicans is this. They completely rally around a leader. Then Democrats get in 4-8 years. Then they rally around another leader who totally dislikes the one they rallied around before. It’s like they’re cultists who move from cult to cult. Reagan, to Bush, to Trump. In contrast, I feel Democrats are […]

It’s Biden’s Time

| October 25, 2020

The problem Biden had in the past is that it wasn’t his time. People weren’t cynical enough, skeptical enough of outsiders to want to vote for an insider. Remember Barack Obama and Donald Trump weren’t “supposed” to win their respective nominations. Now people are sick of outsiders.

Election Analysis

| October 25, 2020

This pandemic, this covid crysis, it made Biden a lifesaver for Democrats. He is conservative enough to not be calling Trump a racist for shutting down immigration during a pandemic. he’s cynical enough not to bail out rioters, to be chanting chants of revolution during a potentially violent riot. absent of these events, I do […]

Republican and Democratic Structures

| October 23, 2020

Republicans are a corporate structured party in their rank, organization etc. Democrats are supposed to be a more fraternal party. If that’s changed in the last 40 years it was wrong and should be reversed. The parties are not just two different platforms, and there are in fact conservative democrats and liberal republicans. So many […]
