Manchin is a vote for a Democratic Senate Majority Leader (aka not McConnell) and therefore even if he takes some bad votes (that don't matter even if many of them still aggravate the hell out of me, he's reliably with the rest of the caucus when his vote is necessary) he's a net good

No no no, Prisons and Prison Guards are historically VERY GOOD, and obviously it was very smart to trust that what they said happened, happened.

Since that seat is lost forever much like the OH seat Brown has if he's not the one running for it he's a net good.


I disagree but understand your view.

Like if we're talking about (future) Senators that annoy me more than Manchin, I'd say Hickenlooper is a good example. Manchin is the only Democrat who can hold that seat. Colorado could elect someone better than Hickenlooper but he's already cleared out a bunch of the primary field there.

Basically, my philosophy is "try to run the person as left as you can provided they can win." Obviously that's tricky because there will always be disagreement about how far you can go in any given race but I'd like to think that places like WV and OH can be recognized as places that are basically lost and only held by the power of incumbency and local credibility built up before they were lost. And that somewhere like CO against Gardner you could run someone to the left of Hickenlooper and still win easily. Maybe not as big but you still wouldn't be sweating it.

Like yeah, there are counter-arguments like being able to win big means you can allocate resources in a more focused way or concern that you're inviting 2016 v2 on yourself and those are valid but I also think it's possible to identify seats that are bluer than the representative holding the seat. Those are the people who should be primaried, not the ones who are holding red seats against all sense. Look at deep blue seats for primary challenges first. AOC is kind of the best case scenario for this.

Everyone should be pushed and instilled with patriotism from a very young age.

So some questions about this post from the last topic. (Note I am seeking to understand here, not to convince you of anything)

--When you say "everyone", do you mean every American or just all people in general? And then so for citizens of other countries should they be taught American patriotism because America is the best country ever, or should they be taught patriotism for their own country because countries need to have some kind of national identity? Or some other scenario I haven't thought of?

--What happens when someone moves from one country to another, say as a result of work? Should they still retain their patriotism to their country of origin even if they are not returning there in the forseeable future?
Oh woops. Putting Advokaiser in my sig like this until I think of something more clever
