Haha, I know. I originally PM'd it to SixPoint knowing it was a fruitless effort but figured some others might be interested. It's funny because that kind of response just proves the point really. If you go back in time, those guys obviously toed the line and started out by being totally on board with everything. Then the TEA partiers came in and took it to the ultimate extreme with the sole intention of preventing Obama from doing anything at all. So now they just point to "well he just didn't want to cooperate and acted like a dictator". And then once the more level-headed ones were like "whoa, **** guys, this is getting out of hand" the party turned on them and treated them like they were liberals all along when really, it was the party that moved away.You're wasting your time. It will be viewed as "liberal propaganda" or "the liberal media bias". Boehner and Luntz will be labeled as a RINO's and the unmitigated ignorance will continue.
Whatever. Now we're supposed to "give Trump a chance". lulz okay...
BTW: Vice News is certainly left leaning, but they mostly just let the people they're interviewing do the talking and it's really interesting to hear Boehner and Luntz talk about their experiences where they were completely opposed to Obama but the more extreme members turned on them for trying to not derail every little thing and yelling at Obama during presidential addresses trying to **** on his character instead of his political leanings. Once Joe Wilson yelled "You lie!" at Obama, he became a TEA party celebrity and it spiraled out of control from there.
But yeah, it's easier to just tell us we're brainwashed by the propaganda so I guess I'll just accept that I'm no longer a free thinker and want everyone's guns rounded up.
Sorry, I forgot where I was trying to go with this. Basically: the polarization will not be mended anytime in the foreseeable future and we will likely continue to be pushed in opposite directions based on a few key issues until the empire falls.
