    Does this even have a chance?

    Make this the last year that millionaires stop paying into Social Security before the rest of us

That should be our only ad, on 24/7. Pound the sh-t out of it. Ram it into every head, no matter how dense.

    We would never lose another election.

    Ahead of the midterms, Senator Rick Scott is pushing his agenda which includes: "taxing the **** out of those freeloading low income families or those on social security because everyone should pay taxes no matter what."

    You may not like Maher...but more people in this country think closer to him than think like to us. And his criticisms of us are on point. The Dems should be owning the Center at this point by default but we can't message for dick and when we have power we have no idea how to wield it. But hey we sure can make ourselves look like fools cancelling Abraham Lincoln or decriminalizing crime.

    The Dems could choke away a 4 goal lead with 4 to play because they would spend too much time arguing about whether the score is culturally sensitive, worry beating a team that bad would hurt their feelings and then whining because they don't think the refs arent being fair.

    You know what most people see when they see us...a bunch of pontificating No-It-Alls. They see what is happening in places like San Francisco and realize that isnt what they want in their town. They see what the Minnesota Department of Education (which is run by the Progressives) does here and want none of it. (they have basically destroyed in school discipline because they said it was disproportionate. So you know, just make it so students can do what they want! And yes Kepler, that is true its why my home district is going to have a double employment problem next year with the COVID burnout and why teachers in Saint Paul went on strike a few years back) They see all our good intentions become wasteful, bloated cash grabs and they see the same rot from within. They see a lot of talk but never any follow through. They don't trust us. And it isn't because they are all racist and it isn't because they are all bigots or even that they are stupid (though there is plenty of all that too) but we just spend too much time worried about things that most of the country just doesn't care about. We are all looking for ournext cause, the next way to show how ahead of the curve we are. Meanwhile we ignore the very things we platform on and get elected on.

    He is part of the problem now. Never used to be but he has followed what appears to be the normal progression of a libertarian. The facts are the Republicans plans work because when you're willing to burn the entire fucking house down you pretty much get to say and do whatever you want. Biden should have taken whatever he could get from them and the Democrats should have kept their mouth SHUT about everything else. They over promised and under delivered. AGAIN. The other party NEVER has that problem. NEVER.

    I disagree with Maher often enough but he's absolutely correct about the perception of the Democrats being in the ****ter (right or wrong) and that they're not doing themselves any favors when it comes to the midterms. Sadly the woman he had on last night is a prime example and maybe that's why he invited her?

    Perhaps in that sense he proves he's no better than anyone else in his position.
