Response to The Magistrate (Reply #63)

Sun Aug 23, 2020, 08:40 AM

87. Thank you! Why do so many not understand what that word means? Or...

The base of a party consists of those voters it can count on without reservation. Voters who do not say they have to be tickled just right to do the right thing. People who come out and support the party's candidates, come rain or shine.
Thank you! Why do so many not understand what that word means? Or, perhaps a better question would be "why do so many intentionally misuse that word?" The word "base" is not a synonym for "the furthest left of the left" and it's not a synonym for "purer than thou".

Oh well, all we can do is keep trying to teach them.
