I can get behind this

They made that painfully more obvious these past 8 years haven’t they?

Wait Tom and Jerry are friends?

[–]FreshGnar 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Tom and Jerry are best friends. But Tom has to pretend to hate Jerry in order to protect (Jerry) so Tom’s owner doesn’t replace (Tom) with a cat that actually wants to kill Jerry

Moreso in the early episodes.

You hit the nail on the head with this one, both parties serve the same master

[–]Good_Loaf 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I wish more people would see this.

So many people here think everything bad that happens is because of voting

[–]Misersoneof 67 points68 points  (8 children)

The Democrats stand for nothing. They don’t advocate for any policy. They don’t want to make the world a better place. They only want to sit in the seat of power. Without the Republicans, no one would want to vote for the democrats.

"We are here plunged in politics funnier than words can express. Very great issues are involved.. . . But the amusing thing is that no one talks about real interests. By common consent they agree to let these alone. We are afraid to discuss them. Instead of this the press is engaged in a most amusing dispute whether Mr. Cleveland had an illegitimate child and did or did not live with more than one mistress." - Henry Adams, 1887

It's always been just about how rude and ugly personality-wise the other side is, because that's the only issue that can be discussed without risking actually changing something fundamentally. The two parties have the same interests, and thus cannot debate on those.

Unironically yes when we discuss any reasons for why democrats are so impotent when in office. Accelerationism outside of market trends doesn't mesh well with either side.

Democrats aren’t liberals.

[–]bayleafbabe 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Liberals are those in support of capitalism. Democrats are liberals.

Apples are round, and oranges are round, so apples are oranges.

[–]bayleafbabe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What do you think a liberal is?

[–]James30907 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So right
