(The New York Times)   Republicans packed the Supreme Court, put kids in cages at the border, demand their religion be taught to our kids in public school, force the middle-class to pay for oil subsidies, and somehow WE'RE the radicals?   (nytimes.com) divider line

Republicans know how to fight, know how to win, and know how to maintain power when they win (i.e. pack the courts, gerrymander, voter suppression, massive political funding).

Democrats on the other hand, gain power by chance or gain power because the opponent is so terrible (i.e. Trump).

Nothing is going to change until either Democrats fight back, fight dirty, or American voters elect new Democrats that are fighters.

Actually they did by any definition the kept seats on the Supreme Court and lower court open until their guy could be elected. They packed the court, there is no other definition that works.

"Packing the court" means expanding how many members there are and appointing Justices from your political party. This has been the meaning of the phrase since at least FDR threatened to do it.

As I said before, the GoP stole two seats, they did not pack the court.


Eat FARKING DOGSH*T.  The GOP held non-appellate openings to the federal bench when Obama was president.  They cut the length of debate for judicial appointees from 30 hours to 2.  Then they packed the courts.  Go eat all the dicks next to your disingenuous argument.

We had a Secretary of State, multiple term Senator, Legal scholar, and had been in the WH before and she was probably the most highly prepared candidate in a generation.  Americans don't want people in government to be able administrators, they want them to play sax, have a beer with them and shoot the rock from outside.  Flash more than substance.

America is a budding collapsed empire.  We are Rome and the barbarians aren't at the gate.  They are the farking GOP and rural Americans.

That's basically what's happening in Virginia at the state level. Democratic majority has been pushing through progressive policies and the people are looking at them and saying "Hey, this stuff isn't so bad after all." which means that through good governance and administration, Virginia might turn out to be a reliably blue state in the future.

I don't know when, but at some point, I'm sure the GOP is going to rue the day they decided to brand every Democratic politician as a 'radical socialist'

If Biden has a relatively successful presidency and becomes popular among those who voted for him, what are they gonna say when someone like AOC is the nominee? Don't vote for her because she's a socialist, but actually this time? At some point a critical mass of voters are gonna start thinking maybe this so called "socialism" isn't that bad after all.

It's basically the boy who cried wolf but with socialism instead. By going with this messaging strategy that any form of social welfare is "socialism" the GOP is almost doing as much to improve the public's opinion of socialism as actual Democratic Socialists are.

For the record, I personally consider countries like Canada, Germany, Norway, etc to be examples of democratic capitalism, not socialism, but I never once got a conservative to understand or even remotely care about the difference.

I'm 32, and given what I've seen through much of my lifetime, Democrats have a shiatty sense of what's "electable" and what "isn't electable".

2004: Democratic Party leaders said that Howard Dean wasn't "electable", and insisted John Kerry was. We went with Kerry. He lost.

2008: Democratic Party leaders said that Barack Obama wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Obama. He won. Twice.

2016: Democratic Party leaders said that Bernie Sanders wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Clinton. She lost.

The first step is getting rid of trump, if we can't do that there is no next step and none of the opponents could do that.

That was the same refrain in 2016, and here we are.

The people who are adamant that Bernie would've also lost to Trump are actually admitting that they wouldn't have "voted blue, no matter who".

This. Bernie lost to Biden worse than he lost to Hillary. Complain about 'dirty tricks' all you like, but that's politics, and if Bernie couldn't win against the Democratic political 'machine', he didn't stand a chance against the Republicans if he became an actual threat to them.

Get Democrats into power. Vote for them reliably in the general elections. But build up progressive candidates at all levels, using the threat of primaries to pull whichever Democrat wins to the left. Keep protesting, keep contacting your Congresspeople, and keep working. If we don't keep working to pull the country left, no matter who is in office, it's incredibly easy to lose any ground we take.

This may be our last chance to use that strategy. If Trump wins* again, and the GOP keeps control of the Senate, there may very well be no peaceful way to get rid of them in 2022 or 2024.

Revolutions might sound good on the surface, and past ones may be romanticized (see: references to the guillotine), but they should be avoided if at all possible, lest we win and end up with a Robespierre or a Stalin, or lose and end up with a right-wing dictatorship that has a shiny new excuse to harass, imprison and murder dissidents by the millions.

Plus also claiming he will veto Medicare for All if it comes across his desk as president because he will deem it "unaffordable" (even though the Koch brothers themselves commissioned a study that inadvertently proved that single-payer healthcare is cheaper in the long run than our current system). The scenario playing out for Biden to even need to veto Medicare for All is it getting through Congress and the Senate (which the latter is currently in Republican hands), so even if his own party gets it through those obstacles and has a funding mechanism in place in implementation, it's still a no from Biden!

The DNC better hope that fear of what the GOP could do if they regain control remains in the minds of Americans, because we have a short term memory and just telling us the status quo is alright is what got us fascist Trump (his populist calls for better jobs, higher paying jobs and to stop giving jobs to undocumented immigrants resonated with alot of jobless/underpaid people who vote, even though Trump didn't mean a single word he said, he's still president now because of it)! If we don't have a post Biden candidate who will actually work to improve people's lives and stop doing the bidding of companies who bribe the Republicans just the same as the Democrats, then we might as well say hello to a more competent fascist who may be impossible to get rid of, President Tom Cotton.

Even if it wasn't a conspiracy, it could certainly be implied a conspiracy with the candidates simultaneously endorsing Biden after collectively dropping out during the biggest primary week, while Biden was behind in the polls and only won one state (a near-certain Republican state win in the general election for that matter, where voter suppression in Democratic strongholds in that state had been occurring). Much more so than your stupid idea that a person announcing their candidacy for a political contest can be considered a conspiracy.

I will have to tell all the runners in a 5K race that they shouldn't sign up after the first runner has already entered the race, it would be a "conspiracy"!

I didn't know that having all your moderate primary opponents suddenly dropping out and all endorsing Biden just prior to Super Tuesday while the only progressive primary candidate other than Sanders stays on, which split the progressive vote, while promising nothing additional nor changing anything in his campaign that would get more people to vote for him, counted as "turning his campaign around".

I'm 32, and given what I've seen through much of my lifetime, Democrats have a shiatty sense of what's "electable" and what "isn't electable".

2004: Democratic Party leaders said that Howard Dean wasn't "electable", and insisted John Kerry was. We went with Kerry. He lost.

2008: Democratic Party leaders said that Barack Obama wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Obama. He won. Twice.

2016: Democratic Party leaders said that Bernie Sanders wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Clinton. She lost.

The first step is getting rid of trump, if we can't do that there is no next step and none of the opponents could do that.

That was the same refrain in 2016, and here we are.

The people who are adamant that Bernie would've also lost to Trump are actually admitting that they wouldn't have "voted blue, no matter who".


The Democratic Party didn't decide anything. The voters did. Blame them.

Republicans packed the lower courts and the Supreme Court.

Sauce.

People often use "court packing" to describe changes to the size of the Supreme Court, but it's better understood as any effort to manipulate the Court's membership for partisan ends. A political party that's engaged in court packing will usually violate norms that govern who is appointed (e.g., only appoint jurists who respect precedent) and how the appointment process works (e.g., no appointments during a presidential election).

Republicans packed the courts, and now Democrats must take ameliorative measures to counter the effects of Republican court packing.

Actually they did by any definition the kept seats on the Supreme Court and lower court open until their guy could be elected. They packed the court, there is no other definition that works.

"Packing the court" means expanding how many members there are and appointing Justices from your political party. This has been the meaning of the phrase since at least FDR threatened to do it.

As I said before, the GoP stole two seats, they did not pack the court.

Well guess what the meaning of things can change. What the Republicans did was steal like 200 judicial seats.

The meaning hasn't changed, you and others are misusing it. I think it would be fair to say they stacked the lower courts but "packing the court" still means something different. I hope if Biden wins and the dems take the Senate that they actually pack the court.

They're hoping that if they misuse it enough, the meaning will change and they can claim the Republicans did it first. It's a very dishonest way to try to win support for something.

He's ran a good campaign.  He was never going to be Stokely Carmichael, but his economic plan is more progressive than I would have imagined, and his healthcare plan may not be M4A, but it's about 75% of the way there.

But hey, there are still progressive voter intent on undoing all of their progress because Biden isn't 100% of what they asked for.

DarkSoulNoHope: monsatano: Weatherkiss: Yeah, too bad Democratic Primary voters decided the best possible choice for President is the guy who says his best selling point is that he can work with Republicans. We get the government we deserve.

Yeah blah people are stupid amirite

You implied black people, monsatano. Weatherkiss said "Democratic Primary voters" meaning without regard to race, sex or other factors. So stop being racist by implying only black Americans voted for Biden and stop putting words into someone else's post.


Yes, because the black vote in SC had nothing to do with Biden turning his campaign around and winning the nomination.

PluckYew: jst3p: punkwrestler: Tabletop: Lol, Republicans only packed the supreme court if you accept the new definition of court packing that didn't exist a week ago. By the same method, everyone on fark is now a violent rapist.

Actually they did by any definition the kept seats on the Supreme Court and lower court open until their guy could be elected. They packed the court, there is no other definition that works.

"Packing the court" means expanding how many members there are and appointing Justices from your political party. This has been the meaning of the phrase since at least FDR threatened to do it.

As I said before, the GoP stole two seats, they did not pack the court.

Eat FARKING DOGSH*T.  The GOP held non-appellate openings to the federal bench when Obama was president.  They cut the length of debate for judicial appointees from 30 hours to 2.  Then they packed the courts.  Go eat all the dicks next to your disingenuous argument.


I am not going to eat dogshiat because your are ignorance makes you angry and hostile.

Read a book, or a link, and educate yourself. I fully agree that what they did was reprehensible but words mean things even if you don't know it

Tabletop: They're hoping that if they misuse it enough, the meaning will change and they can claim the Republicans did it first. It's a very dishonest way to try to win support for something.


I hadn't considered that, I was merely attributing it to ignorance, but there could be some malice involved as well. Sad.

/still voting Biden
//still hope he actually packs the court.
