Really, dude. The Republican party shucked off all moral rights to Lincoln’s name after 1965, when it chose to sell out its principles in exchange for naked power. There’s nothing left now but a cancerous soup of proto fascists, theocrats, oligarch bootboys, and full-time professional liars, lying to the millions of Americans who want to be lied to. Which I’m not, so you can cram your GOP beer goggles where the sun don’t shine, because you’re just not that good at it.




Nice collection of leftist talking points. I won't engage in 'whataboutism' by countering with an equally impressive collection of right-side ones. They exist, believe me.

How do you explain Trump getting more Black votes than any Republican since 1960?


How do you explain Trump getting votes, period? He’s not just a bigot, bully, and career incompetent, he’s a Jim Jones figurehead for a calculated 50-year Republican party campaign to migrate the USA to a Russian-style one-party state. And he’s not even very good at that, shouting the quiet parts out far too loud far too often for the GOP’s own comfort.

But one thing Trump is really good at is lying to people, telling people who want to be lied to just what they want to hear. And Dog knows there’s a lot of relatively rich, pampered, spoiled first-worlders desperate to believe they are special and better than others and that everything will be okay. So you do the math.

And credit to the GOP where due: their messaging skills are far, fae superior to the Dems, regardless how their actual actions betray their true agendas.

Oh, and p.s.: 10%, while it may be more than 6%, is still absolutely pitiful.
