I'm all for debates, but I need more of these kind of moments.
That is the modern version of a president killing a rival in a duel.
Trump the prophet of his generation?
"Miss U.S.D.A" lmfao.
Not sure I entirely agree. The demographics of south OC are gradually shifting. The population is expanding with new construction (particularly Irvine, Lake Forest) and there has been a rise in the Asian population (and other ethnicities to a lesser extent) over the years. [Old, Conservative] White people are also getting displaced (by minorities) in Irvine, Laguna Niguel, Lake Forest, Tustin, Costa Mesa etc. The tech industry in Irvine is growing which is also bringing in high paying jobs that require higher education. More educated/higher earning individuals tend to favor Democrats as well.
Check out this link and scroll down to demographic drivers. You can see the trends from the latest midterm election.
he didn't say stupid cmon now
That all sounds really nice. Then how come California gets shittier and shittier every second (with all these trends you mention in our favor)?
Hey, Sauce. I know there is a big blue push in south OC. Katie Porter won the 45th district. I’ve met a lot of blue people in the area, I’ve protested outside of Mimi Walters old office, and I talked with her then staff about issues.
But the margin of victory for Democrats was razor thin, and the reality is it’s a near 50/50 split down here, which by California standards makes it a pretty red city. Also, Irvine is not predominately white, but has a lot of minority groups that lean right. Another thing factored in, for me, are the people I work with - and working in the financial industry there are some outspoken right wingers around me on a daily basis.
Right... Left... one thing I can say is we share a lot of the same values. We don’t agree on how to get there. But we do want a lot of the same things.
This post is way too mature for DSP.
A 50/50 split doesn't sound like such a bad thing. Super majorities are killing us. National politics play way too much of an influence at a state and local level, too.
That said...I'm not sure both sides share the same values anymore. I think that's too optimistic.
I had a former Obama speechwriter help me with that post. Thanks, Obama
We need more optimism, imo. I know we don’t all have the same exact set of values, it’s different for every individual. But I think we are definitely a lot closer than we are apart.
I think the internet and social media are radicalizing in that way.
If you talk to people you usually find they're more reasonable.
But here they're, like "OMG you racist ckunt! Die in a fire!"
Absolutely. I get caught up in the horseshit of SocMed myself.
gave up talking about politics on FB or most anywhere else but here
with the politics thread it keeps the subject here for those interested in having the conversation
have staunch liberals in my family and get along very well even though we don't typically talk about it since we know where the other stands
the difference i see amongst most of those i speak to is the desire to do whats right for this country first
i can't get behind socialism, i'm not ashamed to be white and idc what you do in the privacy of your home as long as it doesn't hurt kids and animals
we have a great if not the greatest country in the world as far as freedoms and opportunities
that should be the common thread we all desire to be continued forward
dividing into groups of offended and threatening tribes will be the end of all of us
I can't talk to you anymore if you support concentration camps.
Millions will die!
Blood on your hands.
just in case anyone missed conservative journalist Andy Ngo getting sent to the hospital
but please keep telling me how its white supremacists that are the real problem and not these masked jackoffs w impunity
