I don't see this country healing and coming together

Unless the MSM and others stop playing the Ďboth sidesíí argument....there is only one side that has been destructive and has thrived on division for the last 40 years with hate radio, Drudge, Fox News, breibert, etc...

Trump isnít the same as AOC, The proud boys arenít the same as BLM, MSNBC isnít FoxNews, Rachel Maddox isnít Laura Ingram, Chris Hayes isnít Tucker, no one on progressive radio is the same as Rush Limbaugh, DU isnít FoxNation, the rabid democratic voters arenít like the racist trump voters....bottom line, there isnít really a both sides argument

Watching MSNBC

And the Republican senator David Perdue said something that I have noticed for almost 20 years.....he said that he doesnít have to persuade people, he just has to get the vote out...and to be honest he is right and that is what republicans do, they always campaign on a base election. Trump did it this year, and so did their House and Senate candidates....they donít try to reach out to the other side and no one ever calls them out for it. They live and die with their base win or lose....and even when they barely win (Ron desantis and Rick Scott) they still govern to their base

However, Democrats always try to campaign for the mythical Ďundecidedí or worst Ďthe republican voterí...we need to have that same attitude of turning out our voters and getting them energized without worrying about the Ďundecidedí or ĎTrumpí voter...those people arenít going to vote for us anyway...seems like republicans have learned that

Democrats need to understand the rural voter

So for the last 30 years the MSM, Republicans, some Democrats, and actual Republican voters have said that Democrats are liberal coastal elites who have to do a better job of understanding the rural republican voter and stop treating them as Ďfly over countryí, stupid, and different ...but the opposite has actually happened over those years...Democrats bend over backwards trying to court these voters (while alienating their base), and still get labeled liberal, socialist, communist, out of touch, elite, etc..

I am getting tired of after every election being told that we need to do a better job with these ignorant voters who are living in a conservative echo chamber and have no intention of voting for a Democrat....the Democrats would be better off not wasting their time courting them, but instead shaming them for their hateful beliefs....

Perfect symbolism today

So for the past month I have seen dozens of trucks proudly displaying big Trump flags on the back....so today on I-35 I am driving and noticed one of theses trucks....he had 3 Trump flags on the back, but they were all beaten up, torn and dirty...I thought that it was perfect symbolism of the Trump presidency.

Biden or any Democrat can't reach these people

I know the Trump voter. I have worked with them and this is how they have spent their days for the last 20 years.
Monday - Friday
630 AM - Wake and turn the tv on to Fox and Friends
700 AM - drive to work listening to right wing radio
730 AM - 430 PM spend all day at work with their radio on listening to right wing radio while also periodically surfing Drudge, Breibert, FoxNation, etc..
500 pm - on the drive home listening to more right wing radio
530 PM - 1100 PM - watch FoxNews prime time

Sunday
Then have the nerve to cry and complain when they see black athletes protesting because they turn to football to escape politics even thought they just spent their whole week following politics.

Florida is the most right wing "swing" state

As close as the elections for POTUS, governor and senator are, Florida seems like a lost cause...and whatís even worse is that the republicans it elects to these offices arenít even moderates and donít govern as moderates....you would think that in a state where the elections are less than 2 points that they would try to reach out to their liberal constituency

Robert De Niro is wrong

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/robert-de-niro-donald-trump-election-loss_n_5faa7327c5b66009569e36dd

He says that Thereíll be other people like Trump in the future, maybe not in his lifetime who will be a lot smarter, more sensitive, more mercurial and not so boorish and will be able to pull the wool over the eyes of the public.

The part where he is wrong at is when he says maybe not in his lifetime. That person exist today and will be part of the 2024 field...take your pick (Nikki Haley, Tom cotton, josh Hayley, etc...)
