Thanks. To this, I can reply.

I can agree there, the lumping of people together is bad for parties. A moderate Dem doesn't want to be lumped in with SJWs, any more than a Trump supporter wants to be lumped in with David Duke. Someone once told me a few months back, when trying to explain why I support Trump on some policies (Not all), they said I support Rape. I'm just like WTF?

Sadly, the more extreme elements of a party is what is televised, or you tubed about. Its easy to do, but really galvanizing. It is insane, really. And we all know these midterms are going to be hyped up too.

As my neighbor put it, Its time to pick your side. I've picked mine, but I disagree with that sentiment, there seems to be no middle ground left to stand on anymore, because then your disavowed by both sides.



Yes, I can agree with that.

Lumping people should not happen. I have no idea what that guy was talking about.

As for picking a side, I choose to remain center left. The disintegration of the center and other moderates drifting right or left is a bad thing beacuse extremism is bad.


Question, if you care to share. On that Congresswoman from Hawaii, Gabbard, what is your stance on her? She would be an example, of a Democrat I would support (if she were in my state and all Republican options were neocons). I dislike her issues on abortion and some other things, but overall, I don't think she is too out there.

Interestingly, another Trump supporting friend of mine mentioned her and we went down the positions she has. For a majority, we agreed, almost as much as we would agree or disagree with your average Republican senator or governer

Reading up on her a bit, yeah, I can agree that Gabbard sounds great.

If their was no better option, sure. A Leftist Nationalist is better than, say an Elizabeth Warren or Feinstein type. Tulsa, at least makes some effort to be more well rounded, and not afraid, to challenge her party when it drifts down the rabbit hole on some issues. In it's own right, that is admirable, and admirable on the right too, when a politician doesn't just tow the platform, but rules by what they genuinely believe.

All factors being considered (mainly, Trump breaking impopularity records and the Congressional GOP repeatedly ramming through deeply unpopular legislation under the cover of metaphorical darkness), the Democrats have a golden opportunity to retake the House, probably make large gains on the state and local levels, and maybe even maintain or gain seats in the Senate.

The Democratic Party being the Democratic Party, however, I'm keeping my expectations moderated. If one party can squander a potential landslide, it's them.

If Trump did nothing else, your ridiculous outrage is enough to gain my support this time around, and for Republican senators too.

So sorry Democrats, you all galvanized us republicans into supporting Trump through all the ridiculousness this past year. This time, it's a straight Republican ticket for me. Your party didn't stand for reason, but for outrage. Those of us on the fence were forced to move right because the left is flat out embarrassing at this point.

Even your humor is stale. The small hands joke was funny, once, 2 years ago.

Imagine desperately making that many bullshit excuses to avoid taking responsibility for your own radicalization into the Trumpist cult of personality.

Certain national thinkers liked Tito differentiated between national spirit and national chauvinism on those grounds. His policy was to try and construct a Yugoslav patriotism to combat all the destructive ethnic nationalisms within his borders. I feel that's a good way to go, and it worked well til he passed on.

Perhaps.

I would associate nationalism more so with the right than left. Saying that, I'll say I think the right has less of a problem with racial equality (legalistically) but more of a problem with racial prejudice generally. Contrastly I think the left, if left to it's own devices, takes multiculturalism too far sometimes, to the point where it strikes a nerve with more nationalist people. I kind of like that the right sort of 'checks' that, a bit and advocates for more integration.

I think it's a good way to go as a short term, patchwork solution, but as you said, it worked until Tito passed on. And I get the feeling that that might be a general problem with that sort of model: the loss of its foundational leadership bringing an end to its stability.

and polls from this time of year are usually quite predictive but yes a lot can change in year. But in all honesty unless something completely drastic happens or Republicans cheat massively I dont see how there isn't a blue tsunami next year.

Lose some, they'll win some. They can flip NV and AZ easily if they put in a morsel of effort, but they'll have a tough time retaining Donnelly's seat and McCaskill's seat.

Well, that's silly. You're mad at the Dems because some Dems do stupid, petty shit and attention whore. I'm mad at that too. But is that really worse than any impacting legislative changes the GOP is making that will certainly do us all detriment?

As for Ms Gabbard, I never understood why the right embraced her. She is critical of Bush/Obama foreign policy and expressed minor skepticism towards refugees. That's it. Other than that, a progressive. I personally like her very much, I just don't see why the right also likes her so much.
