Boi you cray cray? The democratic party is getting nae nae'd left and right right now.
Their political points ranges from extreme socialism to extreme left,
they can't rally behind a nomination,
their political moves are being halted (impeachment, Russian stories, aid withhold for the Corona, their debate fiasco where they can't even count the votes) and every time it does Trump goes up in popularity,
they are having inside fighting with that old boi Sanders,
Virginia a historically republican state went democratic and now is on the verge of building a very big igloo,
they let a billionaire buy his place in the run disrespecting a lot of voters and
MSM is in panic doing nothing but lying, contradict itself, saying that the orange boi is bad and censoring his speeches.

To be quite honest the democrats are in shambles and divided between the nominations while republicans are united behind the orange boi. I don't feel like you are keeping a clear-eye around you, the USA is heading back to the center and the democratics are so far left there is no way they will take part in any of this change.

To clarify regarding the evidence: According to Ballotpedia, there are MORE state level Rs going D than Ds going R. Your anecdotes don't change that. If you have some better (more comprehensive, i.e. not anecdotal because there are always counter-anecdotes) evidence then perhaps you could make a case that the trend at the local level is different from what's happening at the state level. But even if that's true, the original claim, regarding trends at the NATIONAL level, would still lack the evidence you thought it had. And I'm suspecting you don't acknowledge that to be the case, which is the point I'm making here. Everyone is wrong sometimes, but the people who can't admit to it are doomed to keep being wrong because you can't correct what "isn't" an error.

I try to be clear-eyed about opposing evidence and arguments because we are all capable of being wrong, and I want to be right. When you're wrong, admitting to being wrong makes you right. Just like magic.

To recap:
1. you said, as evidence in support of a claim, that "more than a few members of Congress" defected D to R.
2. I said that appeared to be false. But there were some state level Ds who defected, and also (more) Rs who defected the other way.
3. You said, But here is a list of some Ds at local gov't level who defected.
4. I said, You appear to be moving the goalposts after your evidence was shown to be false/unfounded.
5. You said, But libtards are changing the definitions of words!
6. I chose to take a deflection this obvious, which so clearly has nothing to do with defending your original point, as a concession that your evidence was fake. I have no need to engage in an endless shooting gallery against borderline nonsense arguments.

As if you people ever cared about semantics when you're constantly changing definitions like Nazi, Gender, Alt-Right, Misogynist, and Rape from what they were 20 years ago.

You do know Trump is still going to win in a landslide if the only other opposition you have is a bunch of anti-American Socialists trying everything possible to initiate a coup d'etat against a democratically elected official, right?

Call it pedantic if you want, but I think it's important to communicate intelligibly with each other. When you say "members of Congress", I think you are talking about members of the U.S. Congress, not random local government officials. "Semantics" isn't automatically a bad thing to care about. We can't communicate effectively if the words we use mean different things. It also helps avoid the problem of people thinking you are moving the goalposts on them. 'Cause what you're doing now looks exactly like moving the goalposts.

If you want to be pedantic, go ahead. But a lot of people legitimately hate Socialism for good reason, the economy was doing great that allowed more people to get jobs (least until Communist Flu came to us recently), and everyone knows the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory and Impeachment were absolute farces and a waste of everyone's time in what's actually a witch hunt.

And if you really want to see what reality is like, Donald Trump currently has a better approval rating at the same time as Mighty King Obama had. https://www.statista.com/chart/19541/approval-ratings-obama-trump/ Makes me think people were super hyped about Obama because he's black, but after a while people could see he was a weak as hell President with his own real corruption and incredibly unpopular scandals.

Wikipedia has it that there have been only two party switches in the House of Representatives in the last decade, both in 2019: one from Republican to Independent, and one from Democrat to Republican. And no senators have switched in that time. Since "one" is not "more than a few", the two most likely possibilities appear to me to be: one, Wikipedia is out of date; or two, you are living in a media bubble that is grossly misinforming you. So I ask you: is Wikipedia out of date?

(For completeness's sake, I looked at Ballotpedia which listed 7 state legislators switching away from D (one going to R, the rest elsewhere) in '19 or '20, and 9 switching away from R in '19 or '20 (5 to D, 2 elsewhere).)

Unless they get their wish next election, importing so many illegal immigrants who are loyal to the "pro-mass immigration" party as a replacement for their black skinned serfs, bribing stupid people with massive welfare (and taxes), rigging the electoral college using the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (among other shit like massive voter fraud that's been found recently) that it's an effective 1 party (Leftist) rule.

All this shit is incredibly unpopular if people are informed about it, but we have multi-billion dollar propaganda networks who control much of the roads to information.

The guy on the left that tried to burn down a ICE facility, with the People he Claims he want to help inside. Just from the top of my head.

Apart from that there were plots and threats made by their social media whenever political events were planned by other parties and groups.

On top of all the deplatforming efforts.


On top of? No the threats to burn and destroy the places are the deplatforming efforts. The fear of Business owners that, if they don´t put up signs for whatever cause the left is demonstrating for, that their Business is getting vandalized also Counts a terrorism, successful terrorism.

Terror works with fear and fear alone. Do I get hit for that? Was I lucky to day? What if someone finds out I support…? Heck it is a Feeling the left should know far to well and it sickens me that they take the moves from White white supremacy groubs because they are effective.
Yes they are effective. But unification and seperation are different Goals you morons!

Well from what I looked up there was the shooting of a conservative congressman during a congressional baseball game in America, as well as video footage showing cities like Portland, Berkeley, LA, and a good chunk of US colleges having "left" wing or self identifyinh progressives, activists, socialists, and other left wing affiliated individuals assaulting people with bike locks, and other blunt objects.

Apart from that there were plots and threats made by their social media whenever political events were planned by other parties and groups.

Plenty of Left-wing terrorism and shootings though.

Not trying to politicize or start a debate, but… Which "Left-wing terrorism and shootings" are you talking about? I know none, not a single one.
(and just >inb4Antifa, they have never shot or made terrorist attacks, most of their work is deplatforming fascist or white supremacist meetings)

For the large part mate, although I see a trolling rhetoric or visual minority from a few celebratized (thanks to the MSM) activist appearances like Charlottesville that still isn't really what I would consider terrorists. However there are dozens of clips online showing real domestic terror organizations like ANTIFA or BLM that show real physical altercations that really do count as terrorism.


@Brass Melody
Just shows how much of a schism there is in that party atm. Sad to not see a JFK style alternative being able to provide solutions to help with the the issues of the country.


And again, dat baby zeeebwaa eating the wittle apple is so cwoot!! Also I pity the poor stallion, jis wanna lift those barrels off his back and give him a massage.

You know vaguely speaking of such things, I heard an interesting theory recently saying that if Bernie wasn't cheated out of being the primary runner for the Democrats, he would have been a wake-up call to the rest of the Deus to how socialist and corrupt they were becoming.
