Democrats see opportunities to hang on to power which ever means necessary.
Yada yada this. Yada yada that. There is no sense, no point in what they say. Running circles screaming. Russia Russia Russia. No Russia? Kava Kava Kava. No Kava? Abuse Abuse Abuse? Clinton abused? Something else Something else Something else.
Only total lunatics at this point follow Democrats. Hope Green Party will pick up some of these too, there‘re far too many dingdongs.
What a stupid thing to say man.....c’mon bro
Both sides do the same thing. But as of now the Republicans are doing it better.
Don’t stay blind please.
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

Ummm...why would we change it...it’s eminently entertaining...
After this latest fiasco...watch out...there’s going to be a whole new level of crazy going on around here...
It’s really simple to understand...on one hand...you have self proclaimed progressives using everything short of murder in an attempt to sway people who just want to be left alone to pursue their dreams...
These progs...are of the opinion that they know what’s best for you...and by damned...you will swallow their ideology...especially if it kills you...
On the other hand...you have these people that just want to be left alone...who have finally had Enough of being labeled and called names and beaten and had their property destroyed by the prog masses...that they’ve finally grown a pair and refuse to be bitch slapped for having an opinion...
There is no common ground to be had...these are diametrically opposed ideologies...
Just wait for the fourth quarter...after the progs are relegated to that last little corner they’ve painted themselves into...that’s when things get interesting...
My advice...stay tuned...it’s going to be a # show...

started this thread expecting to see rational, nuanced conversation about why people see read such different interpretations into the same events
instead, got point by point refutation about why republicans are right about everything and an insistence that this article [which i thought was honestly pretty objective] is out for repub blood.
backed up by multiple posters saying dems are lunatics.
expect to see a rational discussion of the problem here on ats? how foolish can i be, of course there can only be more of the problem in action.
[before y'all come for me as some Dem Sympathiser, i'm australian and i'm watching your whole terrible political circus in stunned bewilderment. the whole damn thing stinks. it's all terrible and you need to change the entire thing.]

Just came across this article which talks about the current political divide and then proceeds to make generalizations in an almost comical fashion.
Party polarization is tearing at the fabric of American society. The partisan reaction to sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh demonstrates how far the threads have frayed. An Economist/YouGov poll shows Democrats by about an eight to one margin believe that Kavanaugh committed assault, while Republicans by a similar margin believe he didn’t.
