r/politics – Opinion | The Texas abortion law is the latest example of the GOP’s creativity. Democrats follow the rules. Republicans make up new ones as they go.

I’ve stated this earlier than, however it’s as a result of liberals (their voter base) are actually the one folks within the nation who truly imagine that the establishments within the US work (or may with somewhat tweaking) in an goal and truthful manner.

Nobody else believes this. Republicans (each base and voters) know they’ve a long run challenge and that the establishments are simply one thing they’ll change and manipulate to attain it. The overwhelming majority of individuals don’t determine with both occasion as a result of they know that there’s nothing actually they’ll do via this form of political system. The far proper desires to destroy all of this and the far left desires revolution. And the Democrats themselves (not their voter base) are solely attempting to do sufficient to maintain themselves related and close to energy for their very own pursuits. They do not truly wish to change something, they only want their voters (liberals largely) to proceed to imagine that is attainable.

I’ve spent a variety of time occupied with it the previous few days and I feel it is perhaps as a result of most individuals who actually imagine within the Democrats (not those that simply vote for them as a result of they’re lesser evil however the ones who actually imagine that electing folks will change issues or that they’ll get justice via the courtroom with a superb argument or that impeachment or another procedural bull like that may make a distinction), they are usually individuals who did fairly nicely in class then obtained respectable jobs then they moved to cities the place they work within the professions. Simply usually talking, should you take a look at marketing campaign contribution demographics and so forth, that is what you see. So I determine which means it is a mixture of a) feeling that you’re proper about all the things as a result of your life labored out, b) being fully disconnected from the truth of most individuals within the nation, and c) believing in guidelines/equity that everybody else outgrew in youth as they began to see that the system does not work.

My guess is {that a} voter base like that mixed with the overall lack of incentive for Democratic politicians themselves to alter something mixed with establishments which can be designed to stop any change all results in a scenario wherein Republicans and their base trample over all the foundations and get “inventive” with enacting their agenda whereas Democrats and their base simply preserve specializing in the identical nugatory methods. It actually does not matter if a Democrat has the legislative department and the executive- issues like this nonetheless occur as a result of precise energy exists outdoors of these establishments and Republicans know learn how to wield it. Democrats cannot, and their voters do not even stress them to.
