Imagine if folks started posting "AOC trolls the right..." every time she said something stupid, as a deflection of her statements.

The EC is certainly an antiquated system though, that's for sure.
Only until the popular vote works against you, then you'll want it back.

Has no impact on my statement, whatsoever.


In my experience, and I have no experience with Mr. Perez, conservatives put WAY more stock and importance into the silly stuff that AOC says than do liberals. Mr. Perez' opinion doesn't change that in any way.

Yep, 24/7 "we must get rid of Trump" regardless of reason or rational, since day one.

Most of us can see the truth. The fraud squad has become the face of the party, whether they like it or not.


We all see how the establishment distance themselves from their insane ideas, yet absolutely want exactly those ideas to become a reality.


Once again they are lying to us and to themselves. The Dems are completely disconnected from the mainstream and ignoring their constituents.



I have never seen a party act against themselves as they have. They're airmailing 2020 to Trump.

HE. i can live with Trump represents the right. His policy positions are mainstream American positions.
cutting taxes. normal conservative view
cutting regulation and red tape. normal conservative view
closing the southern boarder so that we know who is coming (was the normal view of most Americans in both parties with the exception of the chamber of commerce that wanted cheep illegal labor)
removing illegals normal view of most Americans before the left decided they wanted illegals here to turn into voters.
buying Greenland.... a recurring subject that members of both parties have espoused in the past.




getting rid of Obamacare because its stupid. a view most Americans still have.




name a policy Trumps views are typical views of half or more of the country.




AOC? crash the economy. not normal
green new deal. 20 trillion dollar boondoggle. Not normal
socialism is super cool. not normal
BDS anti Semitic racist bigotry


Name a policy position and AOC is a freak that 10 years ago would get laughed out of any rational discussion.

EC does allow a greater power to a large number of small population White super majority states. But that wasn't by design. Most demographic change is in a few large population states. If TX and FL turn blue Democrats will gain permanent control w EC in place.

Everything the progressives don't like is because it's racist against minorities.
