Another false dillemma. You should read more.

I don't think so. On the one hand we have some poor people just looking for a better life, on the other we have some greedy fucks taking advantage of them. If you are worried about illegal immigration, then you should support harsher penalties for knowingly employing them and an easier path to citizenship, which would make it significantly harder for them to be taken advantage of.

And I read plenty, but thanks. But it sounds like you should stop watching OANN and take your own advice.

In a country where police can murder with no repercussions and seize assets at their leisure; protests can last for months, bringing violence, but still be completely ignored in terms of meaningful change by the government; and the President can spend all day tweeting lies and inciting civil war, why is it so far fetched to think that the majority of Americans were indeed fed up with Trump's constant bullshit and abject failure to govern?

If you asked average Democrats and Republicans about their economic values, you probably wouldn't get wildly diverging answers.

Maybe, maybe not. I've talked to some conservatives who are firm believers in trickle-down jesus, and I've talked to some who, as you pointed out, are ready for those $2000 checks.

opinion that family is an evil patriarchical construct that must be abolished

This is not a real though. You're strawmanning. (And before you go looking: I'm sure it's "real" on twitter and tumblr. But I've never met anyone like that in real life, despite living in one of the Bluest states. The twitterists are loud but they do not represent the left anymore than the kkk represents the right.)

the neoliberal censorship that is the reason this website exists.

Again, I don't consider neolibs "the left." If anything I'd consider them auth center. I think most leftists would agree that censorship is bad (although we are happy to call out people for being racist assholes).

If you set up a candidate who is anti-war and pro-welfare for Americans, I guarantee you that you could get conservatives to support that candidate in droves as long as they leave the culture stuff behind

So...Bernie? (Although I suppose he has been more outspoken about guns in recent years.)

This is where your opinion is the opposite of tens of millions of Americans.

Irrelevant. Truth does not care how many people believe it, and the last four years have shown that a large percentage of Americans will believe pretty much anything.

it's a problem when a large percentage of the population believes the government is illegitimate.

Yes, agreed, and this is actually a pretty big deal, and unfortunately right out of Foundations of Geopolitics. And there doesn't really seem to be a good solution (letting an angry mob reinstall Trump certainly is not it). As to the claims of fraud themselves, there will be a segment of the population who will always believe them no matter what, and on the other hand verifying legitimacy of these is difficult especially when multiple people have admitted to being paid to make those statements/videos. That being said, as far as I know, none of the claims would be "enough" fraud to swing the election regardless and there hasn't been any evidence of widespread fraud.

How would you maintain ideology in the military? That's just the same problem but with guns and camo.

Don't forget that the Supreme Court is supposed to be "ideologically loyal" (via lifetime appointments) and is now heavily politicized, as well as the Senate (originally supposed to be "the best of the best" appointed by States), now corrupt corporatists. (Seriously some of the comments about the Senate in the Federalist Papers are just funny to read nowadays.)

The logical leaps in this....oof.

The most obvious one: you praise Chinese autocracy while also denouncing Mao. So yes, while the "benevolent king" archetype is the "easiest" form of government, the problem lies in what happens when your king is no longer benevolent--"lunacy" as you called it. And from history we know that this happens eventually to a society with certainty.

The whole point of Western democracy is to reduce the concentration of power to prevent that lunacy.

two corporate puppets every four years.

And here you point out our current problem. Despite our elaborate system of checks and balances, government power in the US is currently very concentrated. Your proposed solution is to concentrate it even further? Ridiculous.

While many of your complaints are valid, your conclusion is way off the mark.

There's nothing to debate. There's no nuance necessary for this conversation. Hitler was the epitome of evil, and if you aren't able to recognize that, there is something mentally wrong with you.

For the same reasons they were allowed to shoot unarmed people at BLM protests, I'd imagine.

Hitler was one of the absolute biggest problems of the twentieth century. Excuse me for assuming this guy is retarded for trying to unironically present Hitler as a solution.

Interesting post. Responding as someone who you would consider far-left:

conservative values

How about we start by defining what these are? Because in modern times, it seems to be "whatever the left doesn't like." And when I ask individuals this question, the answers usually either 1) seem pretty fucking left to me, or 2) are not at all what Republican/conservative politicians are doing or have expressed desire to do. And then it becomes a "no true scotsman" shitstorm conversation that gets nowhere.

Something I also find difficult - separating conservatism from Republicanism. No one seems to have a clear answer, other than "Republicanism is the aspects I don't like."

without providing any positive and constructive solutions

Another bit I find puzzling -- one of the central tenets of modern conservatism is "if we ignore a problem long enough, it won't be a problem anymore." Conservatives are the opposition party. It's in the name -- progressives present solutions (attempt to make progress) and conservatives move to conserve the status quo and block the changes. This often seems to be a mindset of "don't fix it if it ain't broke", "the cure will be worse than the disease", or the aforementioned "just ignore it" as reasons to just keep doing the same stuff we've been doing.

So it's interesting that you seem interested in actually, you know, improving things. 🙂

One small correction:

the Left controls the media

The neoliberals control the media. Don't forget that they shit all over Bernie.
