Can anyone answer my original question? How does not trusting mainstream media make you more isolated? You have to define main stream media. Saying they all lie and you resource to the blog of Cletus kind of makes you isolated. Saying CNN isn't trustworthy is different from saying they always lie. ...

This has been happening for years among all political groups, especially among Republicans, but for the GOP, it has nosedived and intensified when Trump came into power. The GOP was already viewed as somewhat of an "isolated political group" and this further solidified this. That has not ...

It appears that President Biden is going big on his infrastructure plain. $2 trillion big ones! That is a lot...and in my opinion...too much...too soon after the COVID relief bill. You need at least 4.6 trillion just to make the proper repairs. 2 trillion is pathetic, especially considering it'll p...

Well obviously they have to raise some money, but five times as much? That's quite a bit more money per voter than the Democrat spent. ($13.03 per voter vs $7.26 per voter) If Republicans just naturally win there, why do they need spend so much? I cannot answer that. The answer is that it's perfect...

No Democrat has won statewide office since 2006 in Wyoming. Its the reddest state in the country. Why shouldnt the Republican candidate raise money? 2006 is not that long ago. If your claim that it's impossible for a Democrat to win there is correct, then the Republican shouldn't have to spend five...

Im sure the local media in Wyoming covers the Democratic candidate. The Republican in the 2020 Wyoming senate race spent five times more than the Democrat . Shouldn't be necessary if Republicans automatically win there, no? What makes you think Booker would have beaten McConnell? He was much more i...

Resources and media coverage. In 2020 you gave Amy McGrath those two things and she lost anyway because she's a milquetoast moderate who no one in Kentucky actually likes. Next election cycle, give the resources and media coverage to the people campaigning on things voters actually want, and you'll...

Well we agree on that at least. Now don't you think the strategy should be to campaign on policies that are overwhelmingly popular among both Democrats and Republicans? They did and they lost. What magic do you think will happen that a Democrat will win in West Virginia or Wyoming? Resources and me...

If it can change one way why can't we change it back? And you didn't answer my question as to why you're willing to bankroll moderates in rural states but not progressives. The state began trending away from Democrats 20 years ago. its going to take decades to reverse. Should there be a 50 state st...

FDR, Lyndon Johnson, JFK, Jimmy Carter, even Bill Clinton won West Virginia. Winning there is completely possible. Besides, if you don't think Democrats can't win in rural areas why'd you guys give tens of millions to Amy McGrath, a milquetoast moderate who was even less likely to win? West Virgini...

The Democrat in Maine did not run on single payer healthcare. She supported a public option, which in today's political climate is equivalent to just saying "I'm against single payer healthcare." The Democrat in West Virginia had much less resources and media coverage than the Republican....

Better idea: Why don't Democrats campaign on helping regular people via massively popular ideas such as a higher minimum wage and single payer healthcare? They way they'll win no matter what the Republican message is. They do campaign on that. Why didn't;t the Democrat win in West Virginia or Maine...

If you don't like crime, you should be in favor of legalizing drugs. Legalization takes the substance off the black market.

Could you (or someone here) maybe provide links to the rich people tax cut? I’m asking out of honest curiosity because it was always a tit-for-tat about wether everyone got tax cuts or just the rich. Well one of the things his 2017 bill did was cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%. ( source )...

Maybe that's their campaign message, but they're still very interventionist and whatnot in their governing. In terms of actual policy I wouldn't call any of them populist.

Modern? Things have always been this way, the only thing that’s different now is who they’re saying it to. Ohhh, I beg to differ. Because of one man, the GOP went from a largely center ride party that supported a free market economy, trade and a strong(interventionist) foreign policy to a populist,...
