It is still a good thing we have Trump... but we really have a four/five party system masquerading as two.
Dems: Neoliberals, Progressives, Browns
Repubs: Neocons, and the MAGA/Nationalists
Republican officials have a different idea of winning than we do. For them, winning means keeping their comfy offices in DC. For us, it means helping out people
There is barely any difference between the Neoliberals and Neocons
@Wood-Ape - OK/MN you mispelled "marxists"
DC has become too cushy, I don't believe anyone in politics was meant to be treated as an executive celebrity, they are supposed to be public servants not self servants
@Logan I like "Coalition of the Alien" phrasing much better than the demoralizing "Coalition of the ascendant"
Honestly if there was a way the people could vote to take luxuries away from government I'm sure everyone would be all over it
Direct Democratic referendums are a Pandora box, but it could be nice to lower politician salary or benefits
Brimelow defines it as the historic American nation vs anti-America
Something, government officials become untouchable by the people once they are elected, they don't have to be held accountable to anyone who voted for them unless they want to be reelected
Getting big money out of politics is something that could unite right and left against the establishment
But I'm thinking allong the same lines as taking away benefits from illegals to reduce them coming here
Elections barely hold people accountable. The incumbent wins his primary 99% of the time unless the challenger has a personal fortune to fund attack ads
I wish the left would #metoo McCarthy after this King fiasco
I mean they still take in donations and PAC money, that should be outlawed too
I feel like we agree with the DSA on more economic stuff than we would like to admit lol
my interviewer said there's a fair # of socialists here
if the salary is too low they'll just have more incentive to live off bribes
@Dylan - NY That's correct, we accept many different economic views
thats good, in terms of economics its important to debate
Democracy, or the Klepticratic Kritarchy that calls itself Democracy, blows
as long as it doesn't get divisive debates are fine
I personally think it's not healthy for friends to bottle up their disagreements
Even Damigo said a lot of guys on our side agree with socialist policies in the TYT video
i think security for good, working Americans is important, we all know that economic anxiety is why whites are reproducing slower
I favor a social safety net for whites only.
@Dylan - NY the IE guys that used to be Leftists are really interesting to talk to.
i think most of us are repentant libs of some stripe
any former lefties here?
I was a typical republican before becoming WN
I got here through Free Market slide right
Was a Bernie Bro
Former leftist here
bernie would be so cool if he was pilled
I was a civnat who agreed with Dems economically, I actually registered Democrat <:nervous:359009898115104770> just because of economics like a dummy, I quickly realized I didn't want to be a part of the party who hates me
well i guess he cant be pilled
I say it for the meme, but I do have lefty economics
