Am I the only one who sees the irony here? - Third world countries indeed

Posted: May 17th, 2017 - 7:17 am In Reply to: So you're saying you'd be fine if millions of Americans weren't - represented in this democracy??

Undemocratic means to regain power? Thy name is Republican.

All your leaders are sitting in congress and senate now crossing their fingers and hoping against hope they can get their disgusting "healthcare" bill and tax cuts for billionaires in before this whole thing comes crashing down.

How's that for undemocratic?

I disagree with the school of thought that says Democrats lost this election because we did not cater to hillbilly middle/lower class white people. Nope, those were always going to be for Trump or anyone who promised them coal mining jobs, less social welfare (not for them, who are all on it by the way, but for the "urban" people), and gave free rein to their basest instincts (Trumpy perfect candidate).

Ideas? Like what? MAGA? It means nothing when Trumpy is now making American very very terrible.

The ONLY reason Trumpy is in there is because of the electoral college in addition to the massive voter fraud perpetrated by the Republican party after the Voting Rights Act was struck down. They are cheaters, plain and simple.

Another thing, the above poster actually said "With any luck, there will be no Republicans at all in government in the long run." NOT conservatives. Believe it or not, it used to be that conservatives were in both parties, they still are to an extent. I have to think also that this is just a wish, not something anyone could ever take seriously - let's face it, as long as Fox News and Rush Limbaugh exist putting dumb ideas into people's heads who have nothing to do but listen/watch all day long, there will be plenty of Republicans in the govt.

I think what is failing this current govt, in addition to Trumpy, is the Republicans' lack of ideas - they have the talking points, the mouthpiece of Fox (State) News, they just have no substance at all behind the rhetoric. Repeal and replace Obamacare. Oh, they'll repeal it alright, but forget about replacing it. That would mean they can't take the money out of it to give back to the billionaires.

The R's have been the opposition party for so long and are so good at obstructing, they pretty much forgot how to govern at all, and with their typical "hot potato" approach to anything approaching taking responsibility for any idea at all, the only consensus they have with their far right wing and their more moderate members is "yay rich people" and "no gays" and "bad Obamacare."

Now that's a dearth of ideas, and what is worse they have the chance to make all the great ideas you claim into law and they are sitting on their hands. Shame on them.
