Decided to make this thread in order to stop bombarding the "News" thread with politics.
So use this thread to talk about all things politics. Gripes, complaints, double standards, ways to improve anything
So here is a classic case of Double standard Dems
dems are cucks
they alienate their progressive base to pander to republicans, and republicans fucking hate them
"we need a strong republican party uwu" nancy fucking pelosy
theyr brain dead and self destructive
good politics, shitty rhetoric
Havent you thought about how volatile our country is rn. The country rn is in divide. Biden has not delivered on any of his promises a month into his campaign and has done more destruction within 3 days to the american people than trump his entire term. If dems dont take Republicans into consideration (cuz you know millions of people actually voted trump) so thats millions of people who dont agree with the Democrats as it is and you alienate them ur just gonna cause more divide. Let them try to take away guns oh man. You thought the BLM riots were bad.
its been divided since the civil war my guy
except the southern plan succeeded in capturing the southern states so the territories of the conflict have switched
We arent talking about division between pro and anti slavery. The race problem was already causing divisions since like obama era. You are talking contributing to more division. Anti-gun laws? Not gonna fly. When illegal immigrants flood through the border? Who is gonna answer for all that? This administration is simply adding to the division. Keep in mind BLM praised Biden as a savior then revoked the statement when he ignored them.
Definitely alot of buyers remorse going on and we are only a month in. We will see if it holds up in midterms and both houses dont get swept with a red wave
its more nuanced than pro and anti slavery now
even back then it was 'states rights vs federal rights', that's the core of it
back then it was states rights to own slaves, and now its shit like welfare, abortion, gun laws, universal healthcare, etc
but at the core its still federal vs states rights
dems being for feds (like lincoln was) and reps being for states
another difference with dems and repubs is also about people vs big business
dems are the party for people and their welfare, and repubs are the party of big business
now dems and repubs switched bases during, what, the 50? 40? but repubs have always been pro big business
WHICH back then wasn't a bad thing, because we want big businesses back then so we have more jobs, so og reoublicans i would support
but now these mega conglomerates don't need the welfare theyr receiving
republicans were the party of the past
the biggest lie on the republican party is that theyr fiscally responsible
if youv ever looked at the deficit when a republican is in charge it sky rockets
cause guess whos paying for those tax cuts for the wealthy? the poor and our national debt
they subsidize it through that
trumps tax plan this year was going to raise taxes for people making less than 70k a year
RAISE TAXES FOR THEM, because that's how you subsidzie lowering taxes for the rich, that money has to come from somewhere
anyways, be thankful biden will be dismantling many aspects of trumps tax policy, raising taxes for people making 400k (as they should be....)
Republicans party of the past, dems so for the people. Simultaneously putting 10,000 people out of work. Saying its to better the planet while flying in jets that emit enough carbon that it doesnt make a difference. People 15+ years work experience told to start over in a different field. Only to then be proven how stupid they are with situations like texas. Yes there was more to texas than clean energy and fossil fuels but still it played a part in that talk.
If anything Dems are pro big wigs. Because none of their policies i have seen so far benefiting anyone. American anyway.
