4. But republicans are the party of family values.

At least that's what they've been telling us for 40+ years. Maybe our side could put together a national ad campaign reminding people of that, & show their blatant hypocrisy.

6. Popular ideas empowering the people

These are inevitable over time ... because of already higher wages, home-gig opportunities, demands of business for better locally-trained workers (where small companies and Community Colleges meet). But some also can be tweaked to a lighter, less-costly version, which is where I think this is headed. Half a loaf is better than none.

8. Republicans are wanting to do what repubs have wanted to do since The New Deal.

They've vowed since FDR's presidency to kill Social Security and return the country back to the plutocratic ownership-rule of the corporatists and the aristocracy. They believe that unless a person is from that group, they are not entitled to anything except wage slavery. And FWIW, they'd just as soon make any person who has to work for a paycheck a flat out slave period. They and their ilk are the ruling class and everyone else is a peasant. Too bad for you if you're not one of them.

16. If you're not one of them, it's your own fault for not trying hard enough

to have rich parents.

9. If only

If each person in a group had a single item for dinner, but decided to share what they had with each other, and let a trained chef cook the meal, the whole group could have a pretty good dinner.

10. Which is why Manchin and Sinema are idiots

They could let go of the Dark Side and embrace being Democrats. Instead of finding satisfaction and kickbacks in being puppets of corporations, they could find greater satisfaction and continued respect and support by helping to push the 3.5 T plan. Its what most people want. They could be heros but they are zeros.

17. Republicans are the reason Americans can't have nice things,

or even things that would make life easier.

Or even the somewhat essential things - healthcare, good and affordable education, affordable child care, clean energy, etc.

18. You can also pin the blame on Calvinistic patriarchal cristofacism.

The old Puritan saw that "if you're poor, it's because God doesn't love you much." They equated work with salvation and prosperity. The harder one works, the more enriched one will become with gold and God's graces.

Fuckers.
