Be critical of your political party

Discussion in 'Politics' started by ElRanchoDeluxe, Nov 18, 2022.

  1. I thought I would make a thread that encourages folks to be critical of the political party or leader they affiliate with. Even better imo would to be critical of both parties.

    I’ll start. I don’t like Republicans taking up the abortion issue. I also didn’t like the Biden vaccine mandates.

  2. i'm having a hard time supporting republicans who continue to support trump for POTUS. being in KY i've never supported mitch the bitch. i'm in consultation with some friends, all republicans as it turns out, that feel about trump and the republican party pretty much exactly as i've expressed myself herein these threads. at the local level i recently did not vote straight party ticket but rather voted for people i thought would be best for the job.

    If the GOP nominates trump i am going to be exceptionally disappointed.

    good thread. if people are honest with themselves they will find plenty of fault with their own party.

  3. Conservative politicians are the worst, they’ve literally had 2+ years of perfect layups and they fumble every single time. Almost like they are intentionally doing it.

  4. I've never really identified with either party.
    If I was forced to pick it would be an easy choice of the lesser of two evils for Republicans.
    There's a quote that's roughly "Republicans are just democrats ten years ago"
    If you can't criticize both parties I don't think you are an honest or intelligent person.
    The new libertarian party seems kind of interesting. I don't know that much about them yet, and they are still forming. It just got taken over by new people.
    Maybe it's time for a third party to be a serious candidate.

  5. If he was about supporting the populist movement he would have bowed out of the 2024 running but nope his fucking ego wont allow that.

  6. Just my opinion but about 95% of the Dems and about 90% of the Reps should be considered the "Uniparty". They make decisions based on how it affects them, their financial positions, and especially their job security way before any thought is given to right or wrong, fair or unjust. Term limits should have been implemented a century ago. A 'Career' politician is just that. In in for a career and security, NOT do do the job that they were elected for. The Public Good is an afterthought, if it's even thought at all.

  7. Libertarians suck. All they do is lose. The party is flawed by design. People that hate parties don't really make a good party.

  8. I couldn't believe it when that issue first came out. Hey I got an idea let's alienate half our voter base and discourage any on the fencers before a midterm while reinforcing negative perceptions about conservatism in general. :bang:

    I have my personal opinions about abortion but I want less authoritarian oversight not more thanks...

  9. I used to call myself a Libertarian years ago. Then I saw my first Libertarian Convention on TV. There was a guy dressed as a Druid, and the Representatives from Wisconsin were actually dressed as cheese. I've called myself independent ever since, though I usually vote R. Not as much to support the R's as to try and slow down the D's destruction of America and whatever values may still exist.

  10. Yeah, they're nuts, really not doing themselves any favors. Druids do not belong in politics, at least directly. They'd do better in an advisory position. Cheese belongs in the cabinet, naturally.

    This. The tables get flipped every 10-20 years. People need to realize, we don't live in a Democracy. It's an Oligarchy.
    Here's Rosie talking about topics that would get you shunned and attempt to have your career cancelled in modern times. Quoted from Rosie "In America we are fed propaganda, if you want know what's going on in the world go outside the U.S. media, because it's owned by four corporations and one of them is this one. Go outside of our own countries media to find out truth about our own, it's frightening."

  12. Gladly. What in the ever living hell are liberals now covering for the damn Saudis and their murder games for? If those bastards didn’t want “tensions”, they should have considered that before 9-11. I’d like more tension with them. And this is on Biden tho I certainly don’t think Republicans will explode on the issue because they deepthroat those godamn monsters as bad as anybody ever has. I’d like to see somebody, ANYBODY, put them in their place but there’s NOBODY with the balls to say that in power here.

  13. I think, i don't know for sure, but i think ultra-conservative GOP voters and politicians are the biggest impediment to changing the status of cannabis at the federal level, and showing a lack of support for decriminalization and a workable MMP at the state level.

    this is my party and i think they are as wrong on cannabis reform as they are on pro-life. i think they should get out of the way and let the majority of citizens make the decision on cannabis reform. i just want it decriminalized for personal cultivation and use, and i'd like to see an easy access MMP for those that can't or won't grow their own. In my state Mitch the Bitch is and always has been a vocal roadblock to change.

  15. They aren’t listening to their supporters or the supporters aren’t loud enough but I hear it local and see it across the web often, “just legalize it and get the tax already” and I wholeheartedly agree. I’m glad to pay a tax on it and my history would show that I did my part to keep the booze tax revenue rolling with good faith also.
    It’s the SOS. This state can proudly thump the Bible against gambling while busses pull out of towns all over the state hauling money to the casinos in NC every weekend.

  16. Just vote for legalization. That's the only thing that matters, at least to me...

  17. True but many of us aren’t afforded that opportunity. My state doesn't allow voted referendums. I vote against the opposing party as much as possible.

  19. In this day and age, there is no real reason to have political parties. They cause more harm than help, and are (imo) the reason behind America's problems. I could get on a soap box and ramble all day on this shit.... still might, but I'll leave it at that for now.
