  1. Why are people in that twitter thread sharing a picture of the 1972 election and treating it like a victory ? ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/875240 )

    I mean if it is a quip about how Trump is a crook then they pretty much say 25% of the people inside of the U.S.A. to be stupid ( 56% of America voted, out of which roughly half voted for Trump ).

    You garner no good will with those people, and you want those people to NOT vote Trump in 2020. So that is pretty much the equivallent of a 12 year old throwing a temper tantrum going "YOU'RE WRONG !"

    But hey, I can see their point. But there was a smart and a stupid way to go about it from my perspective. and... "She chose, poorly" ( I kinda thought a Last Crusade quote would fit well, seeing I think the Democrats should rally before they actually become responsible for a Orange-inspired 2nd term )

    1. @drinkingpony That’s not the point. The point is that Richard Nixon won in a literal landslide, every state except DC, Massachusetts, and one electoral vote from Virginia. He holds the record for the widest popular vote margin and his electoral vote total is the second-largest of any President ever. Then, he resigned in disgrace two years later.

      1. @mrmattimation Yeah and he was pardoned by Gerald Ford. Do you really think a country like the U.S.A. is going to still have the U in it should something like that happen again somewhere after 2019 ? In the days which I heard coined 'culture warfare'-era ? But you did not even need to bring that up, my original point still stands.

        How does THAT help anything but all solidified echo chambers ?

        It doesn't

          1. @mrmattimation I litterally explained that it does not matter what he did wrong and you still go "but what I said is more important". That is incredible.
