the only impressive liberal achievements of the last ten years - marijuana legalization
so call me crazy if i'm missing something here but i've been thinking about how the only impressive liberal achievements of the last ten years - marriage equality and marijuana legalization - have been popular pressure from state referenda overruling party orthodoxy. what if you used this to pass a law saying you couldnt run for a national position under the democratic party unless you supported medicare for all? i'm not saying that this wouldnt make entrenched officials run anyway under 3rd parties im wondering if there's something else i'm missing here because it seems like an imperfect way to pressure the bastards
if you want to use state initiatives to affect national policy, I think the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is a decent model
colour me shocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah, phish tribute bands are the worst
they maintain in the front of their head the idea of a more equitable and pacific united states but in the back of their brains are accumulated years of leaky post-millennial business school propaganda and MSNBC sizzle reels, suggesting, hey, jump on this "socialism" thing while it's hot. then obviously if you just write some articles for VICE or a blog on The Nation and show everyone that you believe that bourgeois/u.s. government policy is bad in the past, but fine or whatever when a democrat is president and never, ever like, on-purpose-bad or for-any-real-reason-bad, then the secret masters will take note that you're Dangerous But Not Too and one day your bourgeois heaven will descend from the clouds and you'll have cocktails in heaven with george will, james carville and his nazi wife or maybe rape some interns clinton style.
so how'd this shake out?? VERDICT: fortuitously wrong about this crew not badmouthing Democrat presidents, unfortunately right about them all turning out to be rapists. We'll check in next bisemiennial to see if i'm bi or dead or what's up then okay i love you bye bye.
oh yeah all of this makes sense, it all fits togeth
sure yes it only follows tha
wait back up, take a deep breath an

Nowhere, left-leaning democrats have the organizational capacity of cicadas
a deep, hearty lol
at least cicadas are able to all show up at the same time once every seven years
i would take complete annihilation of cicadas rather than 7 years of eternally returning dread and annoyance
america. you are so far up your own decaying asshole with the russia stuff that even australians are styling on you. be ashamed
its fucked up when even island golden retrievers mock us
