All the Republicans are taking heat with their abject failure. Good old Ted Cruz flew to Cancun yesterday which shows how much he cares about his constituents. “Just confirmed @SenTedCruz and his family flew to Cancun tonight for a few days at a resort they’ve visited before. Cruz seems to believe there isn’t much for him to do in Texas for the millions of fellow Texans who remain without electricity/water and are literally freezing. I think Texas will turn purple in 2022. I think David Purdue is facing an uphill battle in 2022, he has to stick with Trump since he has no other support in Georgia.

Gopers would have us believe that despite a record 5M Georgians who voted without fraud or abuse as attested by multiple audits, recounts, and law suits, there is a very serious loss of public confidence in Georgia elections. Does that make sense to you? Clearly this plague of Georgians voting in Georgia elections must be dealt with. Gopers know it’s much easier to carpet-bomb with legislation than to convince supporters that they should stop believing the lies they’ve been told.

That obv didn’t work so well it seems. But what is also thus obv is that some rhetoric has such power as to diminish and overshadow the power of facts and rhetoric supported by facts. The human mind requires plenty of upkeep, and without that effort, it can easily be prey to the devices of those who would rather be ruled by unfiltered, unreasoned, and unmoderated emotion. February 18, 2021 1:06 PM Log in to Reply xdog I suppose I hold as many irrational beliefs as anyone but I don’t insist on legislation to accommodate them. I wish more gopers would admit their candidates lost because they were lousy candidates who campaigned on lousy ideas, but even if they’re convinced that hordes of antifa thugs gamed election software they should either come up with evidence more credible than a bigfoot sighting or they should save their fantasies for the party convention.

They are perplexed. February 18, 2021 5:20 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
