A) For one thing the end result is usually sabatoged by those who oppose it in the first place..
Take your example..
The democrats wanted a single payer option like every other modern country on the planet, but what we got was the republican plan , RomneyCare. Which
capped insurance company profits, but didn’t eliminate them completely which is kinda the whole point of a single payer option..
Eliminate insurance company profits, which take 30% off the top of every dollar spent on healthcare increase services while cutting rates..
Insurance companies are parasites that don’t even preform a medical function..
B) Example 2: brown vs. the board of education (intergration)..
The racists made sure that the law was worded a way where all the black teachers got fired and the end result was sending 6 year olds solo into white
schools that hated them.
The political system is set up to allow the opposition to sabotage legislation..
C) The truth about immigration is that illegals commit less crime per capita than Americans do..
So if your in a crowd of Americans you have a better chance of being a victim than in a crowd of illegals..
No one wants the bad ones here..
Now saying illegals lower pay rates is a fair criticism.. but the crime stuff is a logical fallacy.
You cannot apply individual actions to large groups of people.. it even has its own Latin name on the logical fallacy list.
D) right wing media creates an alternate reality that ANY serious thought would instantly debunk.. and I can’t think of any rightwing talking point
that doesn’t apply to..
1) “They are comming to get your guns!”
No elected official in American history has ever even proposed a prohibition o guns.. it has been political suicide for centuries..
There is also no warm bodies willing to do it..
Police wouldn’t.. the military wouldn’t..
It is a rape fantasy where people pretend they are tough over something that isn’t ever gonna happen..
2) all the media, scientists, college professors, teachers , celebrities, exc are all in a vast conspiracy to discredit conservatives..
So please explain the logistics and who is paying off all these people to lie on republicans??? Lol
3) 95% of the scientists are faking global warming..
Again explain the logistics of pulling that off..
4) large swaths of the FBI , CIA, exc are risking their careers and freedom to commit felonies attempting to set Trump up AND THE GOP OWNS EVERY
BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT, LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE SUPREME COURT!!
Lol so there is no one who could protect them..
Conclusion) It is propaganda meant to fool stupid people..
Anytime EITHER side tells you a crazy conspiracy theory before you believe it sit down and imagine what logistically would be required to perpetrate
If you can think of a cheaper, easier and less risky way to achieve the same goal.....
