The topic is not your opinion of Democrat policies.
The topic is what Republican agenda item do a majority of Americans support?

Like I keep saying, Repubs are pretend they "won" something...
Pretending that they built something...
The truth is that Repubs simply sucked less than Dems last election cycle.
Oh dear god, woukld you just ****ing stop already, you pompous twit.

Is there ANY individual (or multiple) specific topics which the right claims they DO have majority support in this country for their right-wing agenda?

Or does "nuh-uh!" adequately sum up the right-wing thought to this article?
Sometimes, given the original post, that is all that is warranted.

BTW, I refuse to google and find some article to prove this point.

This is a discussion Forum. Not a courtroom. it is for the exchange of ideas. Perhaps some cannot generate original thinking of their own and must depend on parroting the inventions of others to make their case.

Let's put this in perspective.
Repubs dance around proclaiming that this validates their agenda, and I see no comment from you to them...
I put some context on the issue, and I'm the one you take fault with...


Whatever...

Yes. This is a discussion Forum.
And those who use excuses like you just used to avoid discussing such things are picking their own excuses...

I am not "parrotting" any "inventions" of others.
I've shown the polls. Shown my evidence.
If you don't want to talk about it, you'll use whatever excuse you feel like.

Why?
How is the original post inaccurate?
Are you employing "attack the messenger"?

You say this is a discussion forum.
Then by all means. Discuss.

It would be fascinating to see a thread where all the excuses for refusing to discuss get eliminated from the thread. We'd have a LOT of single page threads if that were to happen...

You realize you're just throwing out the "but they do it too" excuse, right?
You're documenting that Repubs are now doing what Dems have done in the past ...
... and that makes it all okay?


Regarding what Dems did in the past, I'll say the same thing.
It's habitually a vote between the lesser of two evils.
Doesn't matter if Dems win or if Repubs win. We haven't had a mandate vote (that revolved around a "mandate" on the issues) in a LONG while.

So what's your position AZRWinger?
Is it wrong when the Dems do it but right when Repubs do it?
Is it wrong when both groups do it?

Thanks for validating the analysis by repeating the we are now governed by polls since Republicans won assertion.

And true to your form, you claim I said something I never said...

Try to find some courage to answer my questions ...

Agian, you misread to your agenda. By original post I did not mean the opening post #1 but the post to which I am responding.
for instance, many posts are snarky comment that requires a simple negating response, not a tome and not a researched documentation.

And I never attack the source to make my argument. Disbelief is not an attack. And never use the they do it too excuse except to point it out as illegitimate..

As to the rest of the rant there, two words come to mind, fatuous effrontery.

Not everyone must find a link on the internet to have a cogent argument,,,,or thought. I am suggesting some who demand it are perhaps unable to think without help.

If the shoe fits............

No foundit, that's not perspective. That's the disconnect from reality that pompous twits demonstrate because they can't fathom that they aren't justified in being pompous twits.

This isn't even a debate, really. It's a discussion. No one wins, no one concedes, no one loses. There's no key social issue at stake here, there's no great idea nor advancement of policy presented. No legislation, no budget item, no justification for an action.

It's just a discussion about why people think there is support or no support for the Republican agenda. It was OP'd by an obtuse jackass who scours the internet for hit pieces against those he finds politically unpalatable. Mikeyy the Shill posts some random article that doesn't even support itself nor has anything interesting and innovative to say and people comment and, of course, you blow in acting like you're the great debator who's going to make a case for giving the devil sympathy or something.

You're really not the hot sh1t you think you are. You're a pompous windbag that breeds conflict with the way you engage nearly every thread. And I'm going to fill you in on a little secret: you're tiresome because you repeat the same sh1t over and over. Blah blah blah <insert so and so changed the topic> Yada yada yada <so and so made it about ______>.

You spend more time debating the debate tactics of others than you do sticking to your own standards of debating. And it isn't even a ****ing debate this time because, at the end of the day, when discussing whether there's support for the Republican agenda or not, there's really only one thing to say:

Republicans have control of both houses, bitchez! BAM

But go ahead and tell me how I committed a capital offense according to Poindexter's Encyclopedia of Internet Debating Rules or whatever you get your pompous, windbagging sh1t from.

I'll just refer you back to the red letters. Just like they do when you have an objection in Sunday school.

I'm gonna read this article later when Republicans officially take control of Congress and Democrats are walking to their cars with all their sh*t in boxes.
