Fark needs a new tag. It will be named "Madness," and all these stories would go into the recycling bin.

I can't disagree with this headline.

I'm supposed to be more conservative as I age, but all i feel is a strong urge to punch the GOP right in the jimmies.

I became more liberal as I aged. Even my kids noticed and they liked what they saw. They have the young peoples view on how the govt should be and I agree with them on most of it.

The one big one is we have to get rid of the olds. We need new young blood to progress.

"The party has to stay neutral. I'm not telling anybody to run or not to run in 2024 ... That's going to be up to those candidates going forward. What I really do want to see him do, though, is help us win back majorities in 2022."

What would Trump get out of that? If it doesn't help him somehow and unless it's really easy to do then it's not happening.

I'm mid 30s, and I want Dick Cheney solutions for terrorists, including white Republican wealthy terrorists.

Wishing me to be more conservative was a monkey's paw wish that they never should've made.

"If we're fighting each other every day and attacking each other and brandishing party purism, we're not going to accomplish what we need [to] win back the House and take back the Senate, and that's my priority," McDaniel argued.

There is arguably a minimum level of disparity between ideas contained in a single party.
Like, maybe we can all agree not to overthrow the f*cking government?

Right of course, that would definitely motivate him to fly out and talk about himself at their rallies.

Lets hope he helps them as much as it did in Georgia.

Can someone explain to me what is is that the GOP actually wants to accomplish for the citizens of the USA?  I mean, can you name one thing that they have done in the last 12 years that was for moving us forward and not to make those that already have the means to get more?  I guess criminal justice reform happened... I just don't get why the GOP has the need to "take back the house" so badly.  Don't they get more grift from riding shotgun?

I know there are educated and "smart" people in the GOP.  I've come to the conclusion, that the only reason any of their behavior makes any sense is that they know that if they don't at least pay lip service to the pants-on-head crazies in their party, they will get primaried by someone who actually believes in all that nonsense and then we would all be farked.  Can you imagine a congress half-filled with Marjorie Taylor Greene types?  These Republicans are heroes for debasing themselves to keep a lid on it I say.  I mean, there's no other rational explanation.

Give it a month or two, Donnie will be too busy chasing after a new trophy wife to care about politics at all. With any luck that young lady will wear him completely out before the next election cycle gets into full swing. Junior on the other hand might actually wise up and start taking the advice of people who aren't his daddy and mount a MAGA 2.0 run for POTUS, assuming legal issues arising from his past behavior don't put the kibosh on that.

When Hit.....um....Trump gets out of priso....er...Mar a largo I wonder what his version of Mien kampf will look like.  Crayon on napkins?  Or will if be ghost written for him by old Stevie Miller.


In any case, unless he is barred from office, or dies of a KFC induced coronary the GOP will help him return to power just like that German guy did after he was released in 1924.  I really wish we would stop repeating history.

They don't even have a party platform. They have no conservative ideas or solutions to problems facing Americans short of "let the free market of ideas solve it". Which is why we are in the place we are in currently in this country. Reaganomics has failed all of us.

Part of the rights rise to violence is they feel that Democrats have taken over the country by forcing social policies they disagree with. Trans rights  are absolutely terrifying for them. Black people are being coddled economically and socially over white representation isn't fair when they are struggling. Illegal brown people are taking our jobs and depressing our wages. And so on and so forth. And are all to blame for interfering with conservative economic policies with "job killing" regulations. They scapegoat the Republicans as compromising with the "enemy" far too much and that's why our country is broken and that's why it needed Donald Trump. Who would win these negotiations and make everything better.

All of this is incredibly wrong and deeply flawed of course. But it is their views, and where a lot of this hate comes from. They are suffering as bad as anyone in America. And they want to stop the suffering that doesn't involve giving up their views of freedom and liberty. They want to be able to hold prejudicial thoughts with out being labeled racist. They want to own machine guns that can fire 1,000 rounds a second, they want their perceived work ethic rewarded not harmed.

What I really do want to see him do, though, is help us win back majorities in 2022.

It's funny because she, and presumably the other Republicans, are making it sound like "us" is the GOP plus Trump tagging along as one of them. But Trump sees it as Trump, with the other Republicans tagging along so they can pick up his scraps. One of them is wrong.

When asked about reports that the former president may leave the GOP and start his own party, McDaniel insisted the move would "guarantee Democrat wins up and down the ticket" and that "[Trump] understands that."

What's what, seditious bastards? Speak up, I can't hear you over the sound of the monster you created, fed and enabled choking you.

I was told that when I was 14. You'll be conservative when you're older. You'll see. I couldn't answer that then. I didn't expect to change my views, but couldn't say for sure. I didn't know the future.

I've found I've become more conservative about some things - risk-taking behavior and shiat has calmed way the hell down (although not hardly gone - I'm still stoopid.)  People DO it seems to me get more conservative as they get older - pretty much the voice of experience reminding you you're moral and shiat can and does go wrong in unexpected ways.  But there's sure as fark no reason to become Conservative.  Screw that noise with a pointy rock with remote detonated plastique shoved in sideways with a twist.  Twice.

I started off as middle of the road, became a liberal and then loony left over forty years. My positions didn't change. The Overton window did. Now I really am a leftist because modest, incremental-if-at-all change has been exposed as patting the dirty little poors on the head while screwing them just a bedbug's dick more slowly than the conservatives do. And conservatism has outed itself as 200 proof raw gum fascism. The radicals, much as I hated to admit it, were correct.

I don't give a shiat.  It's obvious that the RNC is corrupt as hell.  We know they're going to support fascism, neo-feudalism, corporatism, and bigotry no matter what they do.  Nobody's fooled anymore.

Now, if the DNC would have the veneer of legitimacy pulled back from the way they sabotage every single Progressive in primaries and then double-down if they actually make it to the real race...

Personally I think political parties should be illegal in the first place.  They're nothing but legalized bastard stepchildren of street gangs and corrupt lobbyists.
