Oh, pulpit pounder. Were that ideas were ever discussed. Your side of the world has deliberately, cheated, lied, obstructed, obfuscated and generally wrecked our democracy. From Limbaugh to Alex Jones. From the birther crap to the irrational racist hatred of Obama. From blocking a lawful Supreme Court nomination, to not holding hearings or debate on legislation. From legalized bribery disguised as “campaign contributions,” from dirtying our air and water to destroying the State Department. From climate ignorance to fear mongering about immigrants. Denigrating fact, praising fiction.
Nope. Ideas are not what the republicans are about. They are about the raw exercise and widespread abuse of power. Of denigrating the opposition. Of spreading lies about the role of government and demonizing government workers. Ideas are NOT what the regressives are about. It’s about the widespread cynical and corrupt exercise of power. No debates anymore. No policy ideas. No guiding vision. Amoral. Unethical. Bereft of ideas.
