Stop Pretending Trump is Just “Exercising his Legal Options.” He Very Clearly Tried to Steal an Election

“What do Republicans think about Trump calling Michigan officials directly and inviting them to the White House?” “Oh, he’s just thanking them for doing such a good job with the election.” Horseshit It’s just one of two dozen examples where Trump is trying to steal this election, and his mindless horde pretend on as if… Read More »

Why Trump Did Poorly with Seniors

So we won’t know for sure until all demographic data is released on the 2020 election, but it sure looks like Trump didn’t do so hot with senior citizens this election cycle…or at least not for a Republican candidate. While the media has focused myopically on why Trump did even slightly better with minority voters… Read More »

When Will American Conservatives Take Climate Crisis Seriously? Or Embrace Renewable Energy?

On a message board that I frequent, someone asked “What are some things that European conservatives do better than American conservatives?” I scanned through about 10 answers, and have (so far) not seen anyone mention the environment, pollution, and renewable energy—and that might tell you something about how conservatives in America think on this issue.… Read More »

The Election Wasn’t a Blowout but it Still Proved People Hate Trump

The Power Imbalance Between Rural and Urban Areas

It’s becoming a little-talked about fact that even though big cities and blue states are supposedly “socialist,” they actually control the economy: the staggering majority of American GDP comes from blue cities and blue states. Meanwhile, Republicans that supposedly hate government are in charge of rural areas in red states who’s only real contribution to… Read More »

Are There Ever Really “Undecided” Voters?

The undecided voter is a little bit like the Loch Ness Monster: often heard of, but rarely seen. Every election cycle, we see endless appeals to that 10% that says they’re undecided (and this cycle it was closer to 3% even pretending to be). If they actually exist, they’d be enough to sway any Presidential… Read More »

5 Ways Democrats Can Still Win the Senate

Joe Biden cannot take office with a Republican majority in the Senate. If he did, he’d be the first Democratic President since Grover Cleveland in 1885 to take office without congressional control. And McConnell has already signaled that he would block Biden’s cabinet picks from all but the most centrist Democrats or even moderate Republicans.… Read More »
