A progressive party calling for change, will by definition include a wider spectrum of proposed changes. Just look at the divergence between AOC/Ilan Omar & Biden/Schumer/Manchin.
This is exactly why I see lots of infighting coming. The AOC/ Ilan Omar side of the party gained a ton of power over the last few years. As long as they were in the opposition, the differences were outweighed by the similarities. Now that they're in control I'm not at all confident they will be able to work together.

That’s true but it’s still smaller than the DNC IMHO.

For the love of humanity, can you stop using the phrase "for love of humanity"?

The only imagination is your fantasy that somehow both parties and both side of a debate are always the exact same.
If only I would actually believe that you would be correct.

To answer the thread title;

Follow the "24 hour rule" on all news related to Trump (and politics in general).

Agreed. But getting the nomination does prove that you "aren't practically a dem" at the very least.

The thing is they were nominated because they were practically dems, trying to capture more of the center. After that experiment failed miserably, conservatives became sick of RINOs and started voting their conscious, which lead to Trump and the party’s push to the right.

Can't wait for them to attack the next Republican as worse than Trump.
No doubt.

The zip tie comment was also very inappropriate when they were very clearly professional restrainers and not household zipties, the perp is ex military, and the DOJ already argued in court that he was attempting to take hostages.

I had a thought today.

Anyone remember Yair Weinstock's novel "Blackout"?

Since I first read it 20 years ago, I always considered the plot to be very unrealistic. A fraudster sowing seeds of discord, planning to create a culture of argument, in which communities would implode due to social friction. Weird, no?

Thinking about the plot in hindsight, however, the plot seems so much more plausible today.

Impeaching Cuomo would probably do a lot to lower temperatures

It’s a good idea to impeach Cuomo because it would lower the temperature. I’m not being sarcastic

Anybody who keeps up with the news is fully aware of everything Cuomo did. The left legitimately sees it all differently and doesn't think Cuomo is the demon you think he is. I for example am well aware of everything you are about Cuomo and still think overall he was one of the most important people to the American response.

Not sure what part you don't understand. I don't think Cuomo necessarily deserves to be impeached, but I still think impeachment is good because it serves the public interest of lowering the temperatures by demonstrating that democrats are held accountable.
