Republicans Are the Real Extremists

Recommended Posts

All of Donald Trump’s major policies have failed substantively, politically, or both. His one big legislative achievement, the 2017 tax cut, remains unpopular. His attacks on Obamacare have only enhanced public approval of the program. His fearmongering has cemented majority opposition to his proposed border wall.

 

But while today’s G.O.P. can’t do policy, it commands a powerful propaganda machine. And this machine is now dedicated to a strategy of portraying Democrats as extremists. It might work — but it shouldn’t, because Democrats aren’t extremists, but Republicans are.

What Republicans Can Learn From Bernie Sanders

 

Working as an outsider over the course of a long political career, he has moved a sweeping and radical idea into the mainstream of Democratic policymaking. In doing so, he has modeled a certain kind of tenacious political salesmanship, using the Senate and his presidential campaigns as platforms to advance a major policy idea without initial backing from party leadership.

3% ???    3% ???

That cheap Bastrd !!!!!

Why do the GOP boys donate 10x more to charity than the low-rent, money-hungry, Dem boys?

Is it because the GOP is morally superior the heathen Dems?  Maybe.

But, I will let Heaven call that one.                     😎.
