    Opposing views can lead to introspection. None of our ideologies are perfect. Great non-answer to the question. How does wanting a viable Conservative party make one a lost cause? Be specific.
  2. American Politics

    Please explain why wanting a viable Conservative party makes for a “lost cause.” This is nothing but strawman arguments. It is not clear what you’re actually arguing against. “Progressives” want “big structural change” yet don’t have the votes for it. As for the Democrats, the progressive...

    I support $15 minimum wage, along with about 47-48 Democratic Senators. I believe Biden supports it as well. Problem is we don’t currently have the votes and it does not take precedence over dealing with COVID. The house as on fire but we are having intellectual debate on the best hose to...

    This entire argument is disingenuous. You are implying that coordinating a national strategy (from scratch!) to vaccinate 300 million people in the first couple months of a Presidency amounts to nothing. That is in addition to the President’s other duties of filling his cabinet, being commander...

    They didn’t. It’s still $1.9 trillion with $1,400 checks. Getting the country through covid is “propaganda?” Riiight. He’s been in office all of six weeks, half of which Congress was consumed by Trump’s impeachment and you’re already calling the administration a bust. No. The problem is...

    I saw this intra-party conflict play out in Jersey with our previous Democratic governor, who decided to wage war on his own Democratic legislature. The result was he got booted out in one term, followed by eight years of Chris Christie in an otherwise reliably blue state. The frustration I...

    That’s a strawman argument. I’ll reiterate my point; the average American voter wants to see the Biden administration get the country past covid (where a supermajority 60%+ of the electorate believes Trump failed miserably) and to get the schools and economy back fully open. Those are tangible...

    That’s how the US government works. The republic Americans live under favors incrementalism. Nothing gets passed without a majority in the Congress and for more contentious actions, a 2/3 or 3/4 supermajority. Democrats have a majority in the Senate by technicality only. Passing anything...

    Progressives will call it the bare minimum, but the rest of the electorate looks at it more transactionally. Biden leading the USA through covid crisis while kick starting an economic recovery is considered success to a less ideological voter.

    They absolutely deal with Joe Manchin nonsense. Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, and Susan Collins killed the repeal of Obamacare. That was what most Republicans spent nearly a decade running on. Don’t have much to gain under Biden...? -Will Americans get to vote again in another election...

    It’s not a moderate problem it is a math problem. The median Senate seat is R+7 partisan lean. It takes three cycles to create a new Senate. The 50 Democratic Senators represent over 60% of the American population. The other issue is progressives are fair weather voters. Conservatives vote...

    No, it’s not hard to blame those who want the President to be a dictator. We just fired the last President and his party for acting that way. Either you respect the American process or you don’t opportunistically when it doesn’t benefit you. Bottom line is the Democrats do not have the...

    Biden has nothing to do with the minimum wage. All he can do is bitch at Congress about it. I don’t know why people direct so much emotion towards the President when POTUS does jack shit in passing legislation. The anger should be directed at Joe Manchin, but frankly no one who’s followed...
  14. SS OU Flawless (peaked #1 w/ 2098 ELO and over 86 GXE, fixture in the top 3 of ladder)

    Nice. I love seeing straight up offensive heat like this. Can we see some replays?

    Thanks for the thorough answers. We appreciate your RMTs
  16. SS OU RAICHU-ALOLA Offense - PEAKED #5, 2092

    Hey, I love this team!! I’ve tried something similar recently. Pairing it with Future Sight was a nice find. Also, Kartana nicely handles the Ferrothorn problem. questions: 1) How do you win the terrain war consistently vs. Rillaboom? Mandi is a good check but she gets pressured often by...

    It was never in doubt. I’ve maintained for years that Donald Trump was never going to be re-elected and once the votes were counted that was sealed. The constant entertaining by the media of the fantasy scenarios with which it is overturned is a grim indictment on our system. None of this...
  18. SS OU Future Sight Slowbro + Lum Scale Shot Haxorus + Bulk Up Cinderace Offense

    Sorry, I know you don’t want to use Chomper but a team without an electric immunity is hardly viable in this meta game. I suggest Chomp or switching out one of your other moms for Excadrill. Excadrill is super good with Mag support, but you’re starting to really stack fighting weaknesses going...

    Trump has to keep fighting the election result so he can keep raising money from his looney supporters. It’s nothing but a grift. Unfortunately we are seeing just how craven and desperate congressional Republicans actually are.
  20. SS OU Get Stick Bugged (BO) [Peaked 1922]

    This team is really weak to weather builds. Rain that has a prominent special attacker such as Thundurus, Torn, Volcanion will slice this up. Dracozolt Sand builds look kind of menacing also. And Sun / Venusaur is an impossible matchup. Not sure what can be done about that without redoing...
