Adam actually helped the Feds back in 2015 because he didn’t want TPP to take over as the main opposition to labor

2018-10-23 20:29:19 UTC  

Did he figure that a more centrist "right wing" party would be a bigger threat to Labor dominance in the long run

2018-10-23 20:29:32 UTC  

Than a true right wing party

2018-10-23 20:29:50 UTC  

yes and even more scary was a party like TPP that could straddle both

2018-10-23 20:30:09 UTC  

TPP had people like Simfan and Cranberry elected in the same region

2018-10-23 20:30:11 UTC  

Which is what Doof turned the Feds into in 2017 i guess

2018-10-23 20:30:23 UTC  

Cranberry was a socialist and Simfan a conservative of the elitist variety

2018-10-23 20:30:26 UTC  

I would disagree

2018-10-23 20:30:36 UTC  

Doof likes to take credit for doing something novel

2018-10-23 20:31:08 UTC  

but the strategy essentially boiled down to telling new lefties "hey, I am a different kind of conservative from all those people in RL" I support x,y z

2018-10-23 20:31:15 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:31:18 UTC  

he was just more successfull in doing it across more elections

2018-10-23 20:31:45 UTC  

And that appealed to center left me in mid 2017😛

2018-10-23 20:31:46 UTC  

but Tmth, myself and others had done the same in lower level races for years and Tmth for the PResidency in 2011

2018-10-23 20:32:08 UTC  

The Federalists had moved more libertarian and conservative in 2015 and 2016

2018-10-23 20:32:32 UTC  

prior to that Fed Presidents had been moderates considered to "outside" the inner circles of the party like Duke and Lumine

2018-10-23 20:32:42 UTC  

Leinad was the first President to be by, for and of the Federalist Party

2018-10-23 20:32:55 UTC  

and to be rather ideological at that being libertarian

2018-10-23 20:33:00 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:33:17 UTC  

DFW's work was essentially to return the Feds to where they were in 2014

2018-10-23 20:33:29 UTC  

this was necessary because unlike 2015 and 2016

2018-10-23 20:33:37 UTC  

the left was back in the game numbers wise

2018-10-23 20:33:41 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:33:44 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:33:59 UTC  

And you all were fighting Blairite Labor

2018-10-23 20:36:42 UTC  

And Blairite labor had to be mellow because there was still memories of radicals and old Labor, neither of which were positive. AS well as the fact that both te DemPGH and Bore admins were disasters

2018-10-23 20:37:55 UTC  

Yeah, I mean the Blair/Truman generation revolted against extremism

2018-10-23 20:38:02 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:38:42 UTC  

But by 2018 and with Labor being out of power for longer than most current members can remember

2018-10-23 20:39:02 UTC  

They are hungry for real socialism again

2018-10-23 20:39:06 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:46:56 UTC  

The new Labor admin is relativity left wing compared to past recent nominees

2018-10-23 20:47:09 UTC  


2018-10-23 20:47:29 UTC  

But I wonder what the hell they will actually do

2018-10-23 20:47:37 UTC  

Since they have all 3 branches

2018-10-23 20:48:33 UTC  

I imagine Sestak and a couple other will take the lead on policy

2018-10-23 20:48:57 UTC  

Yeah and Adam will handle strategy stuff

2018-10-23 20:49:17 UTC  

And will "organize" the actions WB will take

2018-10-23 20:50:02 UTC  

How active will Adam be?

2018-10-23 20:50:22 UTC  

He wasn't really active as a Senator I didn't think

2018-10-23 20:51:12 UTC  

I noticed that Adam only voted on stuff that personally matters to him for the most part
