this basically just boils down to republicans can get shit done, when they even have a modicum of power. and democrats are pushovers, and always want to try to reach across the If it smells like the chicken you’re holding it wrong classic shirt besides I will buy this aisle and make everything bipartisan. It’s shitty, but that’s just the way it has been over the last couple decades. I hate claiming I’m a democrat, because I’m a legit progressive, and probably even further left. But, I doubt I’ll ever have a chance for progressive to run in VA and have a shot. Republicans can be far right and center-right, but most democrats are at the most moderate-left, but most are leaning right just to get them votes and get reelected. The progressive caucus in the house is what? Like 30 members? (I checked. 98 Reps, and 1 Senator) With 98 reps, that’s close to 1/4 of the house. Yet they still can’t get anything passed through, because of the moderate “lets be friends with our repub friends” democrats.

Let’s acknowledge that. We need to stand up. Where’s the If it smells like the chicken you’re holding it wrong classic shirt besides I will buy this counteroffensive?” He’s right. You’re either blind or choosing to ignore it if you think anything else. Ever since 2015 things have gone downhill and after barely beating Trump the Democrats haven’t done shit to keep their positions. Just think about everything post-2020. The Democrats haven’t positioned themselves to keep control in 2022. Republicans have been out in full force controlling the narrative. Even if their ideas don’t make sense you still hear and see more Republicans out there than you do Democrats. It’s a team sport to the QAnon types. Democrats don’t have that. So unless there is a massive shift the QAnon party will have the majority. People are out there openly saying racist, hateful and bigoted things and being cheered for it. They’ve painted Democrats as the Boogeyman with mask mandates, mandatory vaccines, LGBTQ+ indoctrination to children and other things like that. The QAnon idiots will be out there voting in unprecedented numbers and I don’t think we’ll see the same turnout from Democrats as we did in 2020.
