Promise?

We better hope that we become a country that doesn't use up and discard people as if they're toilet paper.

Neat unoriginal Republican scare tactics. I swear the message they send out is like a mad libs

After living my adult life under "trickle down" capitalism (some of which I actually believed in at one time), this boomer(ish) guy is ready to try some socialism.
 
2020-07-07 6:07:27 AM  
Sununu.  I thought I'd never have to hear that name again.  What a useless bag of meat.

I wish it were true.

Not desperate at all, just play fighting as usual with their good friends.

... with a rusty fork.  I've already decided not to vote for Sununu and to actively campaign against him.

Back when ICE pulled over random vehicles on NH highways to do a citizenship test, I send a letter to him stating that being a NH resident I did not want to be part of a "papers please" kind of society, and I wanted to see a him in a very public way, to defend NH from this kind of fascist white nationalist behavior.

Didn't even bother responding to my letter, with a "Dear constituent letter."

I wish an interviewer would stop one of these clowns just once and ask, "Can you define socialism?' and hammer on that until they vomit up their ridiculous lack of understanding of the word.
 
2020-07-07 8:34:13 AM  
Oh noes!  Health care for everyone.  Whatever will the bankruptcy lawyers do?

They'll just say something like "government takeover of healthcare" and act like that's some sort of bad thing
 
2020-07-07 8:42:33 AM  
I'm pretty sure everything this human garbage loves should be bulldozed, so there's that.
 
2020-07-07 8:42:51 AM  
Fark, if only!

Instead, it will be wild eyed revolutionaries like Jamie Dimon and Larry Summers.

When they can't answer, they will just accuse the interviewer with asking gotcha questions.
 
2020-07-07 8:43:57 AM  
When you're so put of touch you're making campaign ads for your opponent. This is beautiful.
 
2020-07-07 8:44:27 AM  
Ah. I see that "The Hill" piece from yesterday was just the opening salvo in this particular desperate attempt to instill fear in the rubes.

"Sure, Biden's kinda okay, but he'll be coerced into Sochulisms by the "Far Left."  I understand why it might work with those who are already not going to vote Biden - afterall the Republican party was co-opted by the Far Right year ago - first the Tea Party then the fascist Bannon brigade.

It's like these people are just campaigning on lies. Joe Biden is hardly the socialist nightmare that conservatives are envisioning. The guy is pretty middle-of-the-road as far as I'm concerned.

No, definitely desperate. The rhetoric is becoming more unhinged and politicians who previously would have kept the more inflamatory rhetoric at arm's reach or used coded language are indulging in it directly.

Maybe we can finally have Infrastructure Week....
 
2020-07-07 8:46:46 AM  
Yeah, we ring Biden will turn this country into a socialist hell's cape the same way that electing Obama brought us Sharia Law and got everyone's guns taken away.

All the right wing fear and wharrgarbl would be absolutely hilarious if it weren't so depressingly effective.
 
2020-07-07 8:47:05 AM  
Ask Sununu about medical bankruptcies and how great they are.
 
2020-07-07 8:47:05 AM  
OOGA BOOGA!

The self-proclaimed manliest manly defenders of the white conservative judeo-christian way of life are the biggest simpering pussies on the planet.

Oh no.
Don't.
Please.
Stop.
Please don't throw me in the socialism patch!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

F it. I hate these people and no one in the GOP leadership should ever be allowed to be in charge of anything ever again.

That'd be a shiatty Mad Libs.

Marcus Aurelius: Sununu.  I thought I'd never have to hear that name again.  What a useless bag of meat.


His son is the Governor of New Hampshire.  He's a bit of an a-hole, but actually seems to be handling the pandemic pretty well.  Not sure what's going to happen when Trump goes to Portsmouth this weekend, though.

It's the same thing they always do. They say the Democratic candidate is the most socialist socialist ever to socialize and wants to destroy America. It's nothing new and it's not desperate. It's their SOP.

Why, it's as if however right-leaning the Democrat is, the fascist, white nationalist political party will paint them as a socialist bent on anarchy, and negotiating with them is in bad faith!

But who needs that explained to them aside from Democratic Party elites and alleged adults who think Jed Bartlett was the previous president to Obama?
 
2020-07-07 8:53:13 AM  
They promised us that if the ACA passed, this country would turn into a socialist state.

They promised us that if Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, that by 2016 the US would be a socialist state.

So many broken promises.

I mean, they've promised us socialism so many times, and it's never happened.

I just want perfectly reasonable, sensible socialism. . .things like single-payer healthcare, for the rich to pay their fair share of taxes, for a welfare state that vastly reduces homelessness and poverty, for affordable higher education, for a minimum wage that's an actual living wage, for an end to both at-will employment and anti-union "right to work laws). . .

. . .all the things the GOP denounces as "socialism" or "communism", are all the things I want.

If that's socialism, then I'm a socialist, Comrade.
 
2020-07-07 8:54:40 AM  
Oh my goodness, yes!  Who can forget the horror of the Obama years?  Health care for more citizens, expansion of the rights of those citizens.  Horrible, horrible. Especially if you view government as a tool that exists to enrich the wealthy, punish the poor, and create castes and divisions to maintain current hierchies.

/How dare people try to govern themselves, for themselves.
 
2020-07-07 8:56:19 AM  
It used to be politicians actually guaranteed their constituents they would make their lives better, instead of describing people forced into abject poverty in the wealthiest nation on Earth in the same terms as a parent would use a boogieman to terrify children.

It definitely works to get Democrats to back off of doing anything the Democratic voter base wants in an effort to appease the Republicans making the accusations.

They are done being subtle because they are desperate. If you don't vote for Trump then They will kill you. The stakes of this election are apocalyptic.

And if he loses in November I don't expect them to just turn it off and say "too bad, see you again in four years".

Now, in their defense, they're also being paid to disregard their constituents.

Every time I hear/see someone irrationally trying to sow doom and gloom for Trump, I wonder why.  Then it leads me to question if they ever visited Epstein's mansions.  You have to admit that there are a LOT of people in his orbit that are connected to him.
 
2020-07-07 9:01:17 AM  
*looks around, sees America*

I'll take my chances on socialism, thanks.

"Oh NOOOOOS socialism, the poor being homed and fed, everyone (including people I do not like) having dignity, I would prefer to die" - GOP voter.
 
2020-07-07 9:02:48 AM  
Again, just think how far to the right you would have to be in order to see Biden as a socialist. It's mind boggling. These people need to go outside and get a breath of fresh air. They've been cooped up too long inhaling the smell of their own flatulence.
 
2020-07-07 9:02:55 AM  
GOP: If you vote for Biden everyone you care about will be murdered by rioting 'thugs' (wink wink) and the world will literally end.
 
2020-07-07 9:03:29 AM  
the GOP has no vision for even the next 4 years. Trump cant even articulate an agenda for a 2nd term

they cant even come up with lies because trump is so stupid and cant stay on message
