Yeah, that's the big if. As my dad always says, "The Democrats have an amazing talent for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory."

I won't deny this is true (seriously they had the most honest, qualified candidate running to continue the successful policies of a popular president and they still lost.)  But the fact that the republicans can control the government completely and still defeat themselves so utterly that Obamacare looks here to stay, it's going to be interesting to see who can fail the hardest.

Also I wanted to share this quote

Quote
I've been thinking that right now, the Democrats really need to avoid falling into the grave the GOP dug for themselves by actually proposing new laws. Like just every chance they get the floor, throw something out there. Doesn't even matter if it's feasible. Propose single payer. Propose mincome. Propose phasing out fossil fuels by 2030. Propose Mars colonies. Propose open season on murdering billionaires. They don't all have to be good. Just get the ideas out there on the table. Change them from "Things no one would ever seriously try" to "Things we coulda tried if we hadn't left the arsonist party in charge." However many years later they get bakc in power, they've already got some stuff on the table that the people have heard of and thought about, instead of years of "Trust us, we'll have a great plan," which turns out to alienate everyone. And all those ideas that would've been considered unthinkable will have evolved into "The reasonable alternative to the clusterfuck we're in now."

Heck, since Hillary's chance has come and gone, maybe she could write a blog where every week she just very politely says what she'd have done instead.

Rather than the GOP's strategy of being "The party of No", they should as hard as they can be the party of "This instead".

I don't know if the senate rules allow it, but maybe when the vote on Gorsuch happens, instead of voting "Nay", get every single democrat to register their official vote for the record as "Merrick Garland.

I just think that it is a shame that it is 2017 and they can't just say, you know what, I'd rather have sex with men than women. Happier times for everyone as long as the men they have sex with are each other.

BTW that MGTOW came back and clarified his position as to why he prefers transwomen/femme gays to cis-women:

Quote
Fact is they are more of women than you, some claim to be straight but can be seduced still. They don’t complain often, and if they do try to cause an issue out of nowhere the gynocentric court won’t take them seriously.

Seriously this gay sexuality is based on "Who is the easiest to rape."  I'd recommend feeding him to the piranhas but I don't want to give them food poisoning.

Maybe flat-Earth believers don't really exist. ...Could it be that they are merely an elaborate hoax created for a sinister cause?

I'm not saying it was his original plan. He thought it would be simple "Who knew healthcare could be so complicated". Now that he's realised 'Obamacare' is probably pretty good and removing it would fuck his voters. His gut is now just to leave it. As long as he pretends the ACA is different to Obamacare he can pretend its all good and his voters will be happy with it.
Well his voters are dumb enough to buy that line, I'll grant you that.

Sorry, sorry don't call them thick, bigoted or psychotic particularly if they are or they'll log into the FSTDT forums out of the blue, read this post and declare they aint never voting for no Demo-crat again and run off to hug their security blanket.

Sorry!
