Utopia Talk / Politics / Republican Play Book

A play book must exist somewhere. This article claims that the White House uses props like holding folders up as if they contain all the information they are backing their BS claims on.

This brought back to me a memory of a Maine politician using the same tactic when he was claiming a bunch of UM students had voted illegally in 2009. He had a sheaf of papers always in his hand and waving it around.

It all goes back to the Simpson's.

Republicans have terrible ideas.

Democrats have no ideas.

So with that, support your local 3rd party, stop settling for the lesser of two evils. Push to reform laws that hinder 3rd parties. Even if you cant bring yourself to lose a seat nationally do it in your local state elections where there is a better chance of a win.

Even if you dony like 3rd parties, some competition other than " Im not as horrible as that guy" cant be that bad.

Its not really a two-party system. Its two umbrella organizations.

Any breakdown of that system would ensure power to whatever family dynasty has a personality cult with 1/3rd of the voting population.

They are coalition parties, agreed.

The family name cult shifts a.lot though. Kennedy, Bush, Clinton, Trump.

Dynasties are one thing. Cults are another. I wish you would stop with the false equivalency. Normalizing Trump is something that should never happen.

False equivelancy, the liberal word of the season.

Its actually the conservative argument of the season.

Trump is not the new normal buddy. Do try to refrain from arguing it is so, mkay?

Pretty much all Retard Rod 2.0 does is false equivalency. If he stopped that, he'd pretty much have to stop posting. Wait, you might be on to something...

The thing is liberals are in a crazy echo chamber of black and white. When the real world had a lot of grey.

But keep on thinking that all the evils of the world are because of ome orange man who was president for 4 years....that makes so much sense.

Trump is a caricature taken seriously. Life does indeed imitate Swiftonian satire.

The orange didn't get named for its color, it got its name from the bitterness of its skin. Is a symbolic substitution an immoral equivalence similar to elitism? I'm being cautious in order to not commit a fallacy, therefore, the question.

Ugh! Orange man bad! Maybe I need another mug of
Indonesian original.

Trump is uniquely awful in a wide number of ways, he compares to no one

"I get it, you are more intelligent than 72,822,954 other individuals."

Appeal to popularity.

i have some, thanks

& you are a fool if you can't see it (& yes 72 million can be fools, or just don't care how much of an unfit piece of shit he is)

how many daily briefings has he read? where do you think he gets his information? aside from entertainment shows, he regularly decides his own facts (FUCKING CRAZY)... & look at his goddamn twitter feed for the last week...

all COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS ABSURDITY

The sarcasm as well as the irony is thick as molasses. This small cavity known as UP is a true treasure of comedy.

can you envision any mature fit adult president handling covid as he did? saying "it's going away" continuously since it began, treating it as over since end of April, continually contradicting experts w/ his made-up beliefs, holding the dumbest event on the planet in Tulsa, continuing to hold dumb events after (NEVER ONCE urging masks... him personally asking, his audience just boos adults who ask), & his chant of 'we're rounding the corner' since October, when only getting worse (+ lying it's only due to testing throughout)

you are a loon if you think he's just the same as any other liar politician

(& barely scratching the surface on his unfitness... like look at his relationships w/ dictators vs our allies... & how ridiculously easy it is to get him on your side w/ flattery... so so so much...)
