Unemployedingreenland: Huggermugger: Where the hell is Bloomberg?  Why is he not subsidizing ads?

Much too soon.  Bloomberg will spend strategically where his money makes the most impact.  He doesn't care about whether someone looks good or bad, or whether his ads get in good digs.  He cares about who wins and who loses, not just in any particular race, but overall.  He wants more than Trump defeated.  He wants a downticket thrashing so extreme that the name Trump will send shivers down the spines of political strategists for decades.  He wants "Trump" to reflexively mean "unprecedented landslide that pulls down everyone and everything in the party."  He has no interest in throwing millions at races where his money won't be the deciding factor.  As races tighten and as he and his team see where he can get the most return on his investment, his money will flow.  He wants a certain victory to be sure, but he also wants beholden politicians.  The ones he supports need to know they would have lost without his support.


He's our key to capturing the coveted American Samoa vote!

I mean, I think there are many reasons to not whole-heartedly embrace The Lincoln Project, the most important being that I'm sure they'll immediately turn on Biden as soon as he's elected.  They're working on trying to flush the remnants of Trump out of the Republican Party, so that a more traditional Republican type can get elected in 2024.

That said, though, even if they succeed in that aim, we're still a damn sight better off than we would be if Trump were re-elected. So, for now, at least, I appreciate the help.


TLP is trying to make it seem the "normal" Republicans are reasonable so Joe Biden and the Dems will continue the dynamic being used for the last 30 years.
Everything they are doing now is harmful because it is downplaying how evil they are. It will have the same effect Bloomberg did. He made Biden seem like a progressive and therefore allowed people who should know better to vote for Biden in the primary.
Biden isn't fixing anything because he is conservative. Republicans pretending to be decent people leads to Republicans winning future elections because that current Democratic occupant had done nothing for the voters.

I'm in a similar frame of mind. I've been of the never trust a Republican mindset since I first became aware of politics in my teens, so I'm extremely wary of the Project Lincoln people. I remember everything they've done before trump and hold them largely responsible for trump being able to waltz into the GOP and take over. And I'm certain they'll turn around and do the same evil shiat that got them here again as soon as trump is gone. But I have to admit they make good attack ads.

I'm more interested in seeing how the GOP base shakes out post-trump. When the establishment politicians try to distance from trump and pretend he didn't happen will the base turn on them? Will the right fracture into an openly fascist party and one that is slightly less fascist? And when will the murders start en mass?

There's far more that unites the GOP than divides them. God, guns, abortion, gays. It's pretty easy to get them to fall in line when there are so many one-issue voters they pander to. 

Contrast that to the Democrats where if you aren't one step shy of a full blown socialist, or you are in favor of not giving blanket amnesty to college debt, or you aren't in favor of unlimited abortion rights, or are not in favor of a total gun ban, you aren't really a Democrat and you're really a terrible person.

I swear, Democrats using the purity test right now is the ...


Sure, skippy. You're concerned. You're concerned that Trump is using foghorns. You're going to vote for him anyway, so why should anyone care what your traitorous ass thinks?

i state your name: So what is your view of taxes? What should government provide for society at large?


Depends on which taxes I suppose. Local taxes should fund police, fire, public primary and secondary schools, public hospitals, local roads, and local services (trash collection, snow clearing, etc). State taxes should fund state police, state highways, state public colleges and universities, and large scale infrastructure that benefits a significant number of citizens. Federal taxes should pay for border protection, military, federal law enforcement, and federal infrastructure like interstate highways, etc.

If residents in New York City want to have free healthcare, they should be able to without question. They can and have levied local taxes on property and income to do so. If New York state residents want a high speed rail line to Albany or free college education, they should be able to, by a vote of that specific state. 

What I don't agree is a federal system of taxation to support education, healthcare initiatives, welfare, public housing, or any number of federal programs that should be funded, managed, and administered at the local and state levels. 

Taxes aren't an unlimited "do whatever you want" fund, they are meaningful to each and ever citizen and many of us don't want our federal taxes paying for either initiatives in states we don't live in or programs that we'll never utilize.

As for new initiatives floated by the Democratic Party of cancelling student loan debt by making everyone else pay for other people's mistakes, healthcare that varies quite a bit from city to city, state to state, and hospital system, a national pension plan, and college education for free for all, I disagree entirely. 

Those things are not the purview of the national government. Localities can do so if their residents want.

Generation_D: Republicans make the best attack ads, no question.


Yep. [D]s really are terrible at messaging aimed at Republicans, they genuinely seem to believe that they can somehow convert them over to Democratic priorities and values through emotional appeals, appeals to 'fairness,' and repetition. Or worse, trying to shame them into submission and compliance with condescension. And not only does it miss the mark, given the worldview / leadership-preference of a large number of voters, but it can frequently serve to harden the targets *against* Democrats.

I mean, even before he was elected, it was clear Trump didn't plan on doing a damn bit of work himself.

John Kasich was approached to be his running mate.  Kasich asked what kind of role he'd have in a Trump administration, and he was told that he would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

Of course, the obvious followup question to that is this: so what would the President do?

The answer Kasich got was, "He's in charge of Making America Great Again."

I don't like this one.

1) There's a reason corruption of blood is in the Constitution.  Jared's had enough failure; you don't need to link him to his father.

2) We have reason to believe that Jared committed politicide. It wasn't incompetence, it was intentional biological warfare against people of the United States exercising their freedom of association. He was trying to "hurt the right people."

3) The incompetence is that biology doesn't work that way.  They couldn't protect the red states, and now we all must suffer and die because Jared decided to commit politicide.

My commercial:

When Obama-Biden had an Ebola outbreak, they sent 2,000 people to West Africa to stop it there.

When Trump-Pence had a COVID-19 outbreak, they put Kushner in charge, and decided that dead Americans would make Blue State governors look bad.  What he didn't realize is that plagues spread, and now every American is in danger.  Our economy is in shambles. We have 4% of the global population and 20% of the COVID-19 deaths.

This pandemic has shown that all of us are connected.

All Americans benefit when everyone has healthcare, when everyone has opportunity, when everyone has dignity, when everyone has justice, when everyone has a voice, when everyone has a shot at the American dream.

Remember when we could rebuild after hurricanes?  Remember when we could respond to a pandemic?  Remember when we an American passport was the best in the world?

Let's make America great again.  Elect Joe Biden.
