He runs on anti abortion in all cases, yet had his gf get an abortion and he paid for it.

He runs on being a family man with morals, yet his family says he's nothing but a liar who cheated on his wife multiple times and has multiple kids with multiple baby mamas and he's never acknowledged them.

He runs on being pro law enforcement, claiming to be an FBI agent and a Texas 'peace officer' yet both claims have been proven to be lies.

He supports Trump.

“He’s had a lot of concussions” - Newt Gingrich on Walker

So…this is a desirable trait in a Senator? Brain damage? That makes him “our guy” in the eyes of the GOP? You think he’s gonna govern with a clear head and clear morals?

The GOP has no interest in governing. You need actual policy to govern which they don't have. They just want to win at all costs and weaken the gov't from the inside

u/Dahhhkness Oct 06 '22

The GOP couldn’t even be bothered to write a new party platform in 2020—they reused 2016’s. Sit with that a minute. That is how utterly meaningless actual governance is to the modern Republican Party. Not just Trump—not a single Republican of any power, apparently, bothered to press the case that a political party should think of, you know, policies.

They aren't interested in improving anything - if they were, then they would not fight tooth and nail against any measure that would do so.

[rambling mess of names and reiteration of they don't like democratic policies they can't name]

"So again, you just want your side to win so these people you don't like can lose, you don't really know what policy you don't like or specifically what in a policy you don't like other than you were told it's bad, but don't seem to have an issue voting for someone who blantantly wants to go after every single federal service you currently use"

Watching the political ads running in Florida currently, Republicans here run completely off fear. Just listening to the tones of the ads, even if you ignore the words being said, are basically "Everything you know is coming to an end." As a NPA, it's obnoxious to watch these ads. You have Val Demings running ads on Rubio's poor attendance and how abortion isn't a crime and shouldn't be, and then Rubio's ad is "Val Demings is going to ruin everything that it means to be American."

The Republican party seems to have no more stances since they jumped on the Trump Wagon and railroaded through overturning Roe v Wade. Now it's all about "The other guys are bad, just take my word for it." And somehow, that largely works.

Ah this asshole thinks winning is a virtue by itself. It's basically the opposite of a virtue. All the people in power that Jesus criticized were "winning" by their definition back then. Winning by itself is tha opposite of a virtue. But then again, welcome to the union of Christianity and American politics

u/Relevant_Departure40 Oct 06 '22

The mystery ingredient was Reagan in the 70s. All the propaganda about "welfare queens," "rampant government spending," etc. led these kinds of people to believe that hard work is what makes you wealthy, and poor people should pull themselves up by the bootstraps and just get a job or a better job. These are also conveniently the same kinds of people who will throw a FIT if their McDonalds order takes a little too long. To them, winning is just an extension in their belief that they are virtuous because they're wealthy. Because to them, why shouldn't the wealthy, God-fearing people run the government? They're wealthy so they obviously know about hard work and they're religious so they obviously have morals. The perfect classic American. And then you meet them.

Calvinism (which is the basis for much of the idea of The Prosperity Gospel) has been a core tenet of this country since well before it was a country. The Puritans were Calvinists. I'm not disagreeing with your point, just saying it dates back a long way past Reagan.

Yeah but if I at least pretend like this country wasn't founded on religious extremism and intolerance, I can at least pretend there's some part of America that we can go back to.

But because we capped the number of representatives a hundred years ago…the Electoral College is now a complete failure at ensuring democracy.

Despite that, there are STILL so many Dem voters in the swing states, that the GOP is now pushing an insane “independent state legislature” theory whereby gerrymandered swing states controlled by the GOP (despite the GOP receiving the minority of votes in those state elections) can simply disregard the popular presidential vote and appoint their own slate of “independent electors” who can just give the EC votes to the GOP candidate.

I feel like social media has convinced republican politicians that they can circumvent appealing to as many people as possible by focusing instead on riling up their voters to vote consistently.

Just in: Cell, creation of the Red Ribbon Army (known for their advocacy of conservative values) will be running for President as a Republican.

Despite that Cell is previously known for destroying cities, eating people, and his attempt to wipe the entire solar system off of the intergalactic map, conservatives praise Cell for his honesty, his ability to fight for what he believes, and most importantly, his willingness to do what needs to be done (getting rid of Illegal aliens).

Critics have struck back against this announcement by saying that Cell is a “weapon of war” and “The Red Ribbon Army is an obvious innuendo for Communist Russia”, but American Conservatives say that these criticisms actually make him more appealing.

More News coming at 9.

Imagine if a Dem paid for his mistress’s abortion, had multiple kids with multiple women, beat his baby’s mamas, threatened to kill them and their children, had clear and widely known mental disorders, and couldn’t string a single logical sentence together. Republicans would absolutely destroy that candidate, probably incite violence against them, and on every single right wing media outlet go on and on about how disqualified that candidate is. The democrats would fall in line and try to take the high ground, and dump that candidate.

But when it’s a Republican? All morals and standards are out the window. They are the most hypocritical pieces of shit in this country. They are going mask off and exposing that they don’t actually care about what they’re campaigning on - they simply want money, power, and tribalism. Anyone who votes for their nonsense is a complete gullible moron. It is terrifying how many Americans have been brainwashed into voting against their best interests.

Fuck modern American politics.

The problem is that Republicans have zero shame or accountability.

That's because Republicans only care about getting political power. Democrats don't. For Republicans, the ends justify the means.

I just was reading an article about how church leaders are supporting him even though he's a piece of trash only because he supports banning abortion.

“I think that any Christian who engages in the political process — and especially someone who’s a pastor — you’re always going to be confronted with someone that is either less than ideal, or something that flat-out contradicts what you believe in,”

Imagine talking about morals but giving up your morals and religious beliefs to ban abortion.

None of this matters to them. They're voting for their party - they don't care if he's a wife beater (he is), they don't care if he's paid for abortions (he has), they don't care if he's had kids out of wedlock (he has), they don't care if he's abandoned his children (he has), they don't care if he's an abject moron (he is), they don't care if he lies (he has and does, every minute of the day), and they don't care if he's religious (he's not) and they don't care if he's misrepresented his job experience (he has).

The party of Christian, family values is very happy to bring you all this garbage in opposition to a pastor who's lived a life of sacrifice and virtue dedicated to the very same religion.

It's times like this I really hope there's a hell.

u/zombiepete Oct 06 '22

Hell is real: it’s the world that Republicans want to create right here and now. Most of them are miserable and beat-up, but they’ve been convinced that liberal commie socialists are the reason they’re unhappy and are tricked into voting in a way that will keep them downtrodden and the powerful in power.

It’s kind of amazing.

He is so unqualified in every way to be a candidate for anything. Incredible that he is even close to Warnock in this race. Where have so many stupid American voters come from in the past six years? We can no longer run a government on the honor system. Top secret clearances for everyone wanting to run for public state and federal offices should be mandatory.

In the true timeline, Herschel Walker would have ZERO CHANCE of holding public office not only because of all the scandals/skeletons in his closet but also because he is not qualified - at all. But we are in some alternate reality, unfortunately, so who knows anymore.

At this point it's less about the candidates and more about the voters. I have family members that could watch Trump drown a puppy during one of his rallies and would still vote for him. The Republican party is fueled by a voting base that demands zero strength of character.

u/EETFUK68 Oct 06 '22

Can I just say I’m really sick of this guy? I mean, I’m old enough to remember when he came to play for the Minnesota Vikings and I thought that was the end of it, now he is being told he should run for office (there’s no way he thought of that on his own) and every day there’s another news story about how much of a piece of shit he is, and the GQP is doubling down. Party of family values my ass.

In case it wasn’t obvious before, which it was, republicans have used and abused the abortion issue to get power. That these politicians are hypocrites and don’t actually share these personal beliefs does not matter to most R voters.

Well, I think it’s more that they’re all highly offended and have a collective chip on their shoulders. All that matters is getting their vengeance, no matter the means. For the first time in many years, the white patriarchy has been demoted in status, appeal, and dominance . They have a huge grievance against the people they believe are demoting them to “lesser citizens” and their whole political belief system rests on that feeling of vengeance/anger. To them, democrats aren’t just a political party. They’re a symbolic threat to everything those people value and hold dear (mainly their perceived cultural, political, and psychological dominance). Republicans don’t think rationally, they reason emotionally. It’s all bullshit of course, but they perceive it that way.

And as Benjamin Franklin once opined, “When passion governs, she never governs wisely”.

Sadly the only reason why this works on Walker and not on Trump is because of Walker's skin color and conservative racism.

Trump has admitted to paying for sex (a gop sin), had multiple wives (another GOP sin) and has creeped on child beauty pageants(grab them by the pussy) AND was friends with epstein.

Herschel Walker lives by the motto of: Do as I say, not as I do! When your own kid bashes you, it's pretty telling what kind of person Herschel is. I wouldn't want him as my representative. The better choice for Georgia is to re-elect Raphael Warnock.

I heard Ralph Reed on NPR this morning saying how forgiveness for past sins is central to Christianity and Walker is a changed man. The subtext here is that the affair and the abortion are true (I mean, no one needs forgiveness for things they didn’t do, right?) and Walker lied about it now so how reformed and repentant is he really?
