You're still confused... it isn't about party. Never was. Never will be. It's about holding politicians accountable and making sure they don't do stoopid. Crenshaw did stoopid... Crenshaw gets called out on it.
Get your Democrats to stop doing stoopid and they'll actually get support too.

My issue is that democrats propose something, the republicans recoil in horror, then do the same thing just change the damned name of the proposal!
This is typically the same pattern in every top subject that comes up. Border control, DACA, infrastructure, student loans, abortions, voter ID, military, homeless, housing, jobs, pay, so on and so on... We can all agree ALL OF IT NEEDS FIXING or done better,
but the left just jumps directly to the "kill all the horses" type approach
and that is why the same things come up on both sides that seem to frustrate some as people say why are they fighting over all this when both sides agree with the underlining fundamental problem?[

Wait - how is this political now?
?? Can you leave politics out of it? It's a thing.
You don't think C02 emissions are going to really mess us up if we keep on the same path 100 years from now?
The campaign to undermine public trust in climate science has been described as a "denial machine" organized by industrial, political and ideological interests, and supported by conservative media and skeptical bloggers to manufacture uncertainty about global warming.
The politics of global warming have been affected by climate change denial and the political global warming controversy, undermining the efforts to act on climate change or adapting to the warming climate. Those promoting denial commonly use rhetorical tactics to give the appearance of a scientific controversy where there is none.
Organised campaigning to undermine public trust in climate science is associated with conservative economic policies and backed by industrial interests opposed to the regulation of CO2 emissions. Climate change denial has been associated with the fossil fuels lobby, the Koch brothers, industry advocates and conservative think tanks, often in the United States. More than 90% of papers sceptical on climate change originate from right-wing think tanks.
Since the late 1970s, oil companies have published research broadly in line with the standard views on global warming. Despite this, oil companies organized a climate change denial campaign to disseminate public disinformation for several decades, a strategy that has been compared to the organized denial of the hazards of tobacco smoking by the tobacco industry.
The science, the data, the research says it is real and is a problem while a handful of think tanks mostly funded by oil conglomerates have waged a disinformation campaign against the science in order to cast doubt of the reality and threat of climate change that our fossil fuel addiction is causing.
