University researchers measured a drop in Republicans' confidence in the 2022 elections compared to the period leading up to the 2020 elections, with just 28 percent of Republicans saying they were confident in the upcoming midterm elections compared to 46 percent measured before the 2020 general elections.

And I think this says it all, folks. They will win by hook or by crook.

"traditional American way of life,"


Pardon, but could this be more vague and subjective?

Have you all not learned that polls are BS? What's the 15% of democrats that want to use force to preserve the American way? Are those the ones that didn't get vaccinated?!

Use of force *is* the traditional American way of life.

Their view of it : christian, white, straight, minorities with no rights, women basically being sex slaves to their husbands...

I guess I would start a Tradlife blog if someone pointed a gun or arrows at me. It's just hunting for men and babymaking for women. I don't think I could kill all the wolve like Americans - American hunters are pathetic and dickless in every way, just Kuhners all the way down. Even at gunpoint, I couldn't tdo their thing. But a harem of obedient Christian women would be so much fun to blog about.

austerity101: They're happy to turn to violence because Democrats are terrified of using violence or force against white conservatives.


You ever gonna grow up and realize that the reason Democrats don't resort to violence is because they tend to be inherently good people? That conservatives tend to get all the violent ones because they flat out cater to them?

You're asking good folks to be pricks, problem is you're likely not leading by example. Asking people to be violent for you is the line of the entitled coward.

Go out there and be a hero for us. Or shut the fark up, ITG.

If by "traditional American way of life" they mean women chained to their kitchens, perpetually pregnant, Blacks forced into ghettos and substandard housing/schools, the LGBTQ+ community forced back into the closet under penalty of jail (or death), and poor people left malnourished, without medical care, and left to shift for themselves (which sadly in some parts of this country still exists), they should know they don't have the monopoly in real life that seems to exist solely in their minds.

I'm a middle-class white woman, so Republican politics don't affect me the way they do basically everyone else. That's part of why I vote for Democrats. I don't vote for who will make my life better, I vote for who will make YOUR life better. Because, you know, I'm not the only ambulatory meat sack on this rock. You have to live here too.

Dems aren't opposed to using violence, it just has to be restricted to self-defense. And even that only works if it's not authorized agents (cops and military). Go up against one of those two groups, and you have to learn to turn the other cheek.

I still say the better route is a general strike but I don't see the organization for that happening.

It's remarkable how consistently arrogant and presumptuous these folks are, believing they (and they alone) have the right to define what "traditional American values" means. Hell, they presume to define "America" as only they see it, to the exclusion of everyone else. Entitled bumpkins.

Have you noticed what's happening in the job industry? Maybe it's not that organized, but when good people decide they want more, they have no issue with being passive aggressive about their needs.

Are you farking serious? Since th early 2000s, Tradlife blogging has been popular in the USA, and core movement politically. Quiverfull is an offshoot, for example, that the world know about. Tradlife is not vague and not subjective at all. The blogger are constantly talking about their politics and their fashions, explaining the male-female power structures that are repreented by the patterns on their clothes and their vacation choices.

That 55% of 40% will be surprised how many of the remaining 75% of Americans are willing to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

I've heard the media's side of it, but I'm not following things particularly closely atm. RL is rather farked for me right now.

That said, I have noticed that minimum wage jobs seem to be struggling, in particular fast food joints and Walmart. I'm also getting a lot of truck driver job offers, but one anecdote does not data make.

My concern is that instead of helping people at the lower end, the jobs will be replaced by robots and the people who would have filled those jobs are left destitute and unhoused instead of getting the services they need. We'll lost over 600k to covid, but we may lose even more in the coming eviction crisis.
