    Ok. Can we start with an acknowledgement that there are policies we can champion that are more than “not Trump”, since that’s what you asked for?

      There are always policies they run on. It’s a matter of believing or seeing them follow through with them.

        It would be nice if we actually had policies we could champion instead of just “not Trump”

        There are always policies they run on.

        So…you were wrong, then? There are policies we can champion, but you just don’t like them? Or you don’t believe they actually happened? Because many of these are in the past, which means “seeing them follow through with them” won’t work anymore.

          I just continue to hear excuses from Biden and Dems. “It’s too hard. We tried. We’ll try again when X condition is met. Sorry, donate more to defeat the Republicans.”

            Again, these are policies that actually happened. So are you acknowledging that there are, in fact, policies we can champion which are more than “not Trump?”

            You can acknowledge that they exist without endorsing them, and I’d prefer not to chase your divergent threads until you can directly address the response I provided to you.

              What do you need to hear from me or say? I’ll say whatever you want me to say. It doesn’t matter in the court of public opinion and I have no influence on the upcoming election. If anyone uses anything I say for their voting decision, they’re an idiot.

              Trump is a fascist, rapist, piece of shit. Biden is the greatest and will save us all.

                You asked for someone to show you something. I showed it to you. Can you acknowledge it exists without changing the subject?

                    You can’t simply bring yourself to say, “There are policies we can champion that are more than ‘not Trump.’”? It’s a very straightforward part of human dialogue.

                    “Can someone give me a spoon?”

                    “Thank you for the spoon.”

                    It’s incredible how difficult it is for you to say something so innocuous.

                Flooding the feeds with negative stories sure as hell isn’t going to help in the court of public opinion.
