Captain Obvious Lefty Rigidity Malignant Leftism

Sure, but if

you point out how weak Biden is as a candidate, you get immediately slimed by the dyed-in-the-wool Democrat partisans. Independent and critical thinking is simply not allowed in mainstream Democrat circles!

Remember, as a Democrat you don’t have to fall in love, you just have to fall in line…

One word:


Beyond dollars and cents, politics also appears to have a role in inter-state migration. The 15 bluest states, for instance, lost roughly 1% of their population from 2020 to 2022, according to the Cook Partisan Voter Index, while the 15 reddest states gained 1.1% at the same time. 

People flee crappy government. Can Lefties really be so dense as to not understand that? No, this is not mere ignorance, at least at the top, it is will.

And what we are seeing is the movement of the most conservative–they realize that the old Leftism stinks and they tend to be more conservative (on average) than the populations to which they flee. And that makes sense–it is hard to move and you have to be pretty motivated to do so. There are a zillion details to deal with, both great and small.

So Florida and Texas get more “red,” while California, New York, and Illinois get more “blue” (by default). And non-Portland Oregonians don’t flee, but accomplish the same thing by trying to change the state borders and create a “Greater Idaho.”

Tale as old as time–when the ruling class becomes intolerable, there is a very natural division of the people. One group flees–the two groups can no longer live together.

That’s why Federalism is so important–it allows people of different beliefs to nevertheless stay united, without force. And the Left has desperately tried to tear down Federalism, relying instead on force and coercion.

It is absolutely

true. For a Leftist, if you disagree with them, you are one of three things: 1) stupid, 2) evil/corrupt/racist, or 3) mentally ill.

They really have no other explanations. See, otherwise they would have to marshal actual facts and put forth rational arguments. But if you can be summarily dismissed as stupid, evil, and/or mentally ill, they don’t need to make a substantive argument at all! And it is much easier for them that way. Less effort.

Plus, this way they never put their beliefs and assumptions at risk. They know very well that a Leftist who argues a point often becomes a Conservative! So they can’t leave their “bubble” or “Circle of Safety” by rationally arguing a point–it’s far too dangerous to their beliefs!

And (said in a “whine” voice), “Logical argument is hard!”

Lefty Rigidity

See, the problem

is NOT the messaging. It’s the message. But see, MANY Leftists are much too rigid and narcissistic to realize that the problem is not how “fancy” the packaging is. The problem is the product itself!

The midterms are looking rough for Team Donkey. Very rough. And most of the troubles come straight from the top. While President Biden isn’t up for reelection this year, he’ll likely be responsible for ending a lot of careers this November.

… An anonymous tipster compared Biden’s polls to the last guy. “He’s now lower than Trump, and he’s really twisted about it,” the person close to the White House said.

BUT, don’t get overconfident! These folks steal elections, as we know only too well.

Spokesperson Jen Psaki isn’t the only Democrat jumping ship. Now there’s an exodus of Black staffers because of “little support from their superiors and fewer chances for promotion.” Chief of Staff Ron Klain is also said to be eyeing the exits.

… If dogs won’t eat the dog food you’re selling, a new slogan won’t fix the problem. You need to change your product.
