So the Democratic campaign chairman recently came out and said that Democrats would be willing to fund candidates who oppose abortion rights. They are courting so-called “pro-life” Democrats. Isn’t that the exact opposite of what they’re supposed to be doing? Like, are they trying to lose most of their base?
That’s what it feels like, because what the base is hearing, basically, is they’re willing to fund candidates who oppose access to healthcare. Abortion is healthcare, it’s reproductive healthcare, so you want people who oppose a vital form of healthcare. That makes absolutely no sense. Like, I’m no political scientist, but this seems like a very not-smart move.

I’m always annoyed at the way a good majority of Christians pick and choose what parts of the Bible they want to abide by. This is especially true in the time of Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. He claims it’s not a ban on Muslims, but we all know it is.
Anyway, I’m most annoyed now of how a lot of Conservative Christians are choosing to ignore the parable of The Sheep and the Goats. For those of you who don’t know what that is, you can read it here:

I’m still in utter awe that in hours Donald Trump will be the forty-fifth president of the United States of America. Mike Pence, someone who is arguably even more horrible, will be only a heartbeat or impeachment away from the presidency. I still halfway can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it.

Liberals/Progressives/people on the Left (especially white Lefties) love pretending like they’re oh so much better than folks on the Right when in reality, for a good number of people they look real similar. For example, both groups love shitting on poor people.
Folks on the Left love taking pictures of poor, possibly homeless people and making memes out of them calling the people pictured “typical Trump/GOP supporters”. The joke in this? Poor people aren’t smart enough to see Trump/the GOP doesn’t care about them. You know what’s funny about this though? The Left obviously doesn’t give a shit about them either because they’re using them for jokes and memes.

I know I talk about the Sanders campaign a fair bit, but I’m still amazed at how far left it went. I don’t mean left in a good way either. I mean left as in, “holy shit this went so wrong so quickly.” From Netroots Nation up to today, that campaign has been a raging dumpster fire. It’s an example of what not to do in a political campaign.
I mean, first of all you had the guy who’s not a Democrat running on the Democratic ticket. He bragged about not being a Democrat; he openly called himself a socialist. This posed a big problem in the New York primary.
