FYI - If trump is defeated in 2020, it will be despite internet leftists, no because of them.

The left will forever be more interested in purity testing than anything else.

By "purity testing" do you mean "making sure 'leaders' have solid values and principles that don't turn on a dime"?

I don't roll with fascists, racists, neoliberals, neocons, warmongers, greedheads or other similar scum. Period. The end.

So, fine; I'm a goddamn "purist".

@flugennock Would you vote for someone who you agree with 80-90% of the time to keep someone who is actively hostile to your beliefs out of office?

@halozeta @flugennock Depends where they stand on the remaining 10%. I've got a really big, big problem with warmongering, resisting Medicare For All, and sleeping around with Wall Street.

@flugennock @flugennock Then you will never help us get out of this mess. Stop pretending you care.

@halozeta We're not going to be able to vote our way out of this mess. "Elections" have had their chance. Time to get our goddamn yellow vests on.

Actually, I haven't voted since 2004 because not a single candidate can even get to 40% agreement on my issues, and the whole of American "Democracy" is a corporate-cash mobbed-up media freak circus.
