Opinion: The American right is becoming completely untethered from reality

Liz Cheney is the only woman in the GOP who said “no” to the kool-aid and is thereby worthy of consideration, IMO.

Speaking of women in the GOP, this one pretty much sums up the idol-worship:

Debra Ell, a Republican organizer in Michigan and fervent supporter of former president Donald Trump, said she has good reason to believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

“I think I speak for many people in that Trump has never actually been wrong, and so we’ve learned to trust when he says something, that he’s not just going to spew something out there that’s wrong and not verified,” she said, referring to Trump’s baseless claims that widespread electoral fraud caused his loss to President Biden in November.

As for the Dems, we need more moderates as well as outing of a few. Namely Joe Manchin and Kysten Sienna.

Manchin I can understand, Sinema I can't. :/

There are more moderate Dems than maybe people realize, they just don't pull headlines like AOC. Even so, medicare for all or a green new deal wouldn't seem radical to most western european countries.

When I was still a conservative, I remember arguing here against being a moderate. I didn't understand the reasoning from those who held a position that could be described that way. But that's where I find myself (which means nothing to the right-wingers here who think anyone left of center is a commie but this isn't for them, it's for you).

At the progressive places where I read today many wouldn't accept me as a progressive, based primarily on my pro-life beliefs and secondarily for being pro-2A (with common sense regulation). I've read them multiple times saying they're not impressed with independents (I think you know I've been unaffiliated with any party since 2012). That's because many progressives believe (perhaps correctly so) that independents are made up mostly of people who are embarrassed to say they're Republicans and will lean right at the ballot box. I don't completely agree, but I understand and they're probably accurate to a certain degree. I'm okay without a label and without a political home, but every four years I have to make a choice. And I don't see the GOP coming up with any reasonable candidate - until the boomers/older gen-xers are gone - who would be accepted by the GQP currently eating the GOP from the inside out. In the meantime I'll be voting for Democrats who've shown themselves truer to Constitutional ideals than the apocalyptic (Christian) deconstructionist (Bannon) white nationalist/xenophobic/racist/fascist/right-wing authoritarian (Trump/MAGA GQP).

I'm a bit surprised that the site puts up with this constant flood of posts from Lady Trump Girl. But she's on the Right Side, so I guess it makes sense. Now I'm wondering when I'll put her on ignore.

I'm not surprised at all. And that poster is on ignore, so is completely invisible to me. It's very nice. :)

And of course, this is the ultimate end for all Liberals who have gone full blown reprobate: Shut out all other speech, blind yourself to all facts, and simply vomit out your Marxist Leftist propaganda and hate.

I am very sure that if she had the ability she would permanently ban me from this site, like the true fascist she is.

I'm headed in that direction. I don't like giving up on people so easily, but there's a limit.

She exemplifies a major problem in the US. You have to pick sides, there are only two sides, and you're expected to accept the entire laundry list of opinions.

I understand, and I don't disagree.

I've chosen my side. If that's tribal, so be it.

It had to happen sooner or later: chair is now entering the diseased fantasy world of anna, where people with traditional values and morals like me are the problem, and where the good people are the Marxist leftist socialists, baby-killers and sodomites. That's their world.

chair, annab, Rusha and Arthur, four Marxist scum stains on the forum. That's too bad.

The only good thing is that in a small forum like this, everyone else here already knows that everything I just said is a fact.

A 2020 Pew Research study reveals that over half of white, liberal women have been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point. Does this mean there's a correlation between progressive ideas and mental health?

More crazy:

Pastor Johnny Enlow Says 'Vision' of Donald Trump With 'Golden Scepter' Proves He's President


... mid-prayer, he saw a vision of Trump "seated on a throne holding a golden scepter... [with] a golden crown on his head." He said the vision was Trump's "PRESENT status from heaven's perspective."

"Heaven does not recognize [Joe Biden] having any scepter nor wearing any crown. From heaven's perspective, there is only the legitimacy of [Trump]. God has assigned a massive contingency of angels to that scepter and to that crown."




The cult of Q/MAGA/Trump.
