    Fetterman really is a mixed bag, and to be honest, I kind of like that. Life should be full of nuanced characters, I shouldn’t have to decide between the same cookie cutter pieces of shit we have every election.

    He’s a piece of shit for supporting Israel so staunchly, don’t get me wrong, but there’s also plenty to like about him.

    If anyone cares to read “Project 2025,” it’s a blueprint for creating a Judge Dredd universe, where the only people still living in it will be the Super Rich and the Super F*cking Poor.

    That’s a bad thing, by the way.

      He also shares a very large portion of the core beliefs of the old Republican party. In the 1960s he would’ve likely been considered center right.

      It’s crazy that endorsing medicare and social support structures makes him a Democrat now.

        It’s not crazy, it’s intentional. Poor education combined with the lack of social structure creates a voting population ripe with anger over the shitty system and looking to blame someone instead of learn why it’s like that.

        Conservative media is specially made to take uneducated and rage blind voters and churn out Republican candidates who pretty much only hold office because of manufactured spite towards democrats.

          This is a ridiculous viewpoint, the Democrats are a center right party. Here in Canada they would be considered conservative.

          He supports healthcare and workers’ rights, he’s a Democrat.

          Or at this point the Republicans are so cracked that straight up “if he doesn’t support Project 2025, he’s a Democrat”
