Democrats STOP Criticizing Democrats & Start Criticizing Conservative ReThugs
"Vote Republicans Out Of Office!" - Doctored Jonathan Livingston Pigeon-Poo, CEO & FLOUNDER of the Less Than Prestigious "Bird Droppings Institute," A Think Tank For Morons, No Idiots, Please.

What the HELL is wrong with self-flagellating Democrats constantly criticizing Biden and the Democrat leadership, when every damn problem in this country is, and has been, created by the the Corporate Lackeys in Right-Wing, Religious Distorted, Republican Party?

Republicans for over 20 years have voted over and over against sensible gun laws, instead, supporting "Open Carry Laws", that allow gun nuts to march around in bullet proof vests, carrying AR 15's (automatic military weapons) dressed in military-style fatigues, sporting an addiction two of three hand guns, military knives, whispering into their "Walkie-Talkies" as they shopped Wal-Mart, and other really dangerous grocery stores.

Republicans in most states voted to lower the age to buy a weapon to 18 year old. Teens can't buy cigarettes, or alcohol until they are 21, but, guns...that is their "Constitutional Right"!  Bull Crap! Read the Second Amendment, please. Don't allow illiterate, "Right-Wing Gun Nuts" to translate the Constitution Amendments for you.

The Right-Wing Conservative Republicans answer to "School Shootings, Massacres," and the insane, unnecessary explosion in gun violence is:
"Prayers and Condolences."

How many lives has that banal utterance saved? How much safer are Americans when Republican Senators and Congress person mumble that tired phrase to assuage the deceased's soul, the injured, the permanently damaged, the still grieving, parents, relatives, teachers, friend and the frightened, traumatized residents in our country with those empty, over used words?

None, only than the greedy, lazy, elected officials who take millions from the National Rifle Association. 

Additionally, Republicans have promoted two Supreme Court accused Sexual Predators nominees to serve the on highest court in the land.

The Republican Party has fought tooth and nail to overturn Roe vs Wade, when the Court's Justices, to the person, stated in their Supreme Court Appointment Hearings, that it was "settled law."

Meaning they would not overturn it!  Did they lie in a public hearing?

Currently, there are six Catholics that serve on the Supreme Court. That, in itself, is not an accident. It is a deliberate attempt by the most corrupt Republican Party in the history of our nation to threaten the Constitution's "Separation of Religion and State", placing that amendment in great peril. 

Further, the quality of the Justices has rapidly deteriorated to favor "Whack-A-Do," Right-Wing Goons, Conservatives, Religious Motivated Jurists, who are illegally using their religious/political leaning to override facts., even loyal to the Republican Party over the Laws of the Country, and the Constitution.
 
Clarence Thomas, (Republican) an accused sexual predator, has recently stated that the Court should overturned "Gay Rights," Same Sex Marriages, Prayer in Public School, etc, that indicated that 5 of the 6 Catholic Jurists have made up their minds before even hearing these cases in the Court.

Democrats, if you are compelled to CRITICIZE someone...criticize "the most corrupt Republican Party in the history of our country," not Democrats that have been working for decades to solve problem, not appease their billionaire donors.

Funny, but not TRUE.

Top Democrats, and the rank and file are impatient. They should be. Republicans have been conducting crude, illegal procedures to RESTRICT VOTING Rights for Democrats, while conducting false results for Republicans in state, local and FEDERAL elections with impunity. 

Democrats articulate their views, even if they are counter to leadership's.

Conservative, Right-Wing Republicans follow their leaders religiously, even when they profoundly disagree with them.

There is a significant difference.

Rarely have I seen a more incorrect, false statement.

In fact, I challenge you to show where any Democrat has had his or her right to vote restricted in any way that they are not restricted for anyone other than a Democrat.

Sometimes the leadership is right and the impatient complainers are wrong.

Where the leadership is often more right than the impatient progressives is in understanding that nothing gets done without a hold on the political center, which is more or less defined to be the suburban swing districts.

I live in deeply Blue NYC. Despite the fact that we elected Giuliani and followed him up with Bloomberg there is ZERO chance NYC will vote for a Republican presidential candidate and not much chance a Republican senate candidate will do well either. But New York State certainly has districts that could go either way.

The entire country falls under this demographic logic. There are safe districts and swing districts. There are (at least) two things that regularly turn off swing voters. The first thing is that they are often fed up with whoever is in power and want to give the other party a shot. The second thing is something Democrats should work on addressing. Swing voters hate politicians who bicker rather than get things done.  An appearance of Democrats being capable of working out their differences amongst themselves so they can govern effectively would go a long way.

The infighting about Build Back Better got really ugly. It's one thing when it looks like Democrats and Republicans can't work things out with each other. It's a fatal flaw for Democrats to come across looking like they can't even sort out internal differences among Democrats to govern effectively.

 In case I haven't made it obvious, I agree with you. Democrats need to spend a lot more of their energy taking shots at the GOP than at each other.

If one approaches evidence with a closed mind, it is likely that one will not see the truth. 

I suggest Texan1211 that you might benefit by re-reading the Second Amendment. Perhaps, review the Separation of Church and State clause, and well re-read the entire Constitution.

It is not an easy read. As you may recall, it was written over 200 years by hand, using a quill and ink by men wearing wigs, and wearing expensive, fancy pantaloons, and high heel shoes.

Things have changed in many ways since then, so have we, as a people. Indeed, the Constitution has been amended many times, which is a provision, and a wise one of the framers.

Too many Americans read the Preamble and assume that is the summary of the Constitution. It is not. It is an old document that is difficult to read, understand, and interpret.

In fact, courts, lawyers, researchers, professors, organization have been arguing over the Constitution since its conception.

Great suggestions, really. Might even take you up on some of them.

As nice as your post was and all, please explain how any of what you kindly suggested will explain to me what laws Republicans have passed which have restricted Democrats in voting.

Thank you.

"A house divided against itself cannot stand."  (Abraham LIncoln)

Democrats criticizing Democrats will divide THAT house, and guarantee that the Republicans will walk away with the prize in November, and then the White House in 2024.

That is always a possibility, however, the extent of Republicans corruption, hateful rhetoric, election rigging, the treasonous coverup is exposing the "Big Lie," and illuminating Trump's direct involvement with the January 6th insurrection.

These are not petty issues between political parties. It is a difference between "Totalitarianism and Democracy!"

The mid-term election (November 8th, 2022) may be the most crucial election this nation has ever faced.  

It 1000% more critical than in 2018.  VOTE. Crushed the Republican Party at the polls, not in the streets.

Hear, hear!

I think both the moderate Democrats and the more progressive AOC/Squad/Sanders Democrats would do well to think about how we are a fragile coalition that agrees on most things and is lucky to get any of it done.

There are times in my life when I was frustrated with the moderates and times I have been exasperated with the progressives. Over the past two years I have probably felt both emotions.

Back when Obama was passing the affordable care act I was angry that he and his administration seemed to be putting their thumbs on the scale ruling out Medicare for All, a public option and an early Medicare buy-in. Now I realize that those things were never in the cards and Obama deserves enormous credit for once in a generation healthcare reform.

This covid crisis quickly morphed from one sort of crisis into another over the span of a mere year and a half. At first it seemed like we were being dealt an economic blow like the Great Depression and a similar response was called for. Everything seemed like a good idea all at once: healthcare, childcare, tax credits, enhanced unemployment benefits, longterm elder care, student debt cancellation, etc. Who doesn't like at least something or anything on the list? But then the supply chain hiccups and inflation took front center and it is hard to justify deficit spending in a high inflation setting.

If anything, this economy should have taught most of us, including the experts, some humility. Not many expected an inflation crisis. In fact, a new monetary theory was telling us that deficits no longer matter. It turns out that the American economy is easier to throw out of whack than most people alive remember.

The moderates and progressives need to recognize that they need each other and nobody has all the answers. The worst thing they can do is come off like the whole lot of them are a dysfunctional family that can't govern.

Squiggy:  The Truth is often painful. When one discovers their political party/idol is a thug, some call it a 'lie, UNTRUTHFUL, political". 

Hitler is responsible for killing 60 million. To this day, there are millions in this country that idolize this monster.

One has to ask oneself, "What side of truth am I aligned with? "The Good, Bad or the Ugly"? Unfortunately, we are not talking about a MOVIE. This is an internal war that Putin wants America to lose.

That is why Russia has been undermining America for over 100 years and pouring millions into American politicians' greedy palms.

Rubio

Graham (Miss Lindsey)

And far too many politicians in our political systems, including Donald J. Trump and Family.

Here's the thing:

Well, when the Conservative, Right Wing Republican Insurrectionists pull their screaming hysterical "End of The World" B.S. out of their White Cowboy (Texan Hat) as in the case of Bill Clinton getting a "Blow Job" in the White House from an attractive, willingly 21-year-old woman, with a known history of seducing her bosses, this corrupt, hypocritical religious right, cluster-Fugazzi of "Bible Thumping, Back-Hills, Talkin'- In-Tongues, Moonshine drinkin', tobacco chewing, spitin', Low Brows" jump the gun, it always a God Given Righteous Move to save the world from Satanic corruption.
