Of course it is but if you think you are going to find 350 dems to sit in Congress, all of whom pass your purity test, you are not living in reality.

Your solution to equate one of the most liberal members of Congress with Trump is just insane.

No politician will ever match your worldview exactly nor will any ever be purely progressive.

Itís simply fantasyland stuff.

I definitely don't think he does hard core family separation or Kavanaugh. Trumps affinity for Kav was very specific. If Jeb even nominates Kav in the first place, I could see him just withdrawing him and putting up another Gorsuch type.

He also doesn't go crazy on NATO, meet with Kim, or call out the federal reserve. There are probably quite a few other examples.

I think the differences would be a lot more than just demeanor.

Yeah. AOC can turn that around on people, but Warren should be like Bernie here: "that doesn't concern me. What I am concerned about is...."

Just fly and rep, both of which are 100% trumpkins. They just, by pure accident of birth, are on the left. They regularily use every trumpian tactic in every exchange they are part of.

It's a repost of someone else's joke, hilariously. It's got their twitter watermark in it.

No. They're just aholes. But they're both on the right side for the right reasons. And they're from like OH and NC and were probably born into Republican places. Rep talks about his family plenty.

Dunno what they are like irl, but anti-authoritarian is what they are on the forum.

You really need a different term for the point you're trying to make.

The problem is she's already shown she lacks the ability to just ignore the attacks with the DNA test (and even before that she kept defending the point). She seems like the debate nerd who just won't drop any minor argument when she thinks she is technically right, even if she's losing in general by not just letting it drop.

i could respond substantively but why bother, you'd just ignore it anyway since you have no other retort and lack a base understanding of the issues. as you've demonstrated *again* this morning (like alleging authoritarianism is some brand new trump-induced facet of the GOP).

also, **whom

Yeah, I worry that she'll be a repeat of Kerry in '04 where literally anyone with a pulse should have unseated an awful President but because they were just unlikable enough they blew it.

I honestly don’t think I do. Trumpism has little to nothing to do with policy. Look at the hundreds of things that used to be hardcore GOP policy they have instantly abondoned due to Trumpism (e.g., russia and free trade).

Trumpism is about gaslighting, lying, personal attacks, shouting, anti-intellectualism, content-free arguments and a world where we all get our own facts.

These are the hallmarks of every single rep post.
