My comment was more a critique of the idea that the Left will never lose the support of their base...because they have and they are.
Oh I agree, since I'm one of them
Their hardcore base though? Biden could literally empty their bank accounts and personally take their house and they'd be like "well it's not Biden's fault! Putin! Russia!"

What's really scary is that zealots like this CAN have a change of heart...but what they tend to do on behalf of their new allegiance often would make Stalin blush.

They are religious zealots.
I am disillusioned with atheism, I expected people like me, instead people who were raised without God simply turned into the worship of idols and ideaologies.
The problem for the Left is that they keep shifting who/what their core is. Like Musk's now-famous meme, they are leaving a LOT of people behind.
What meme is that?

As an atheist, I agree that's exactly what's happened.

It's because we humans are basically wired for religion. With the lack of one, we tend to fill that in with other stuff. I channel it into self improvement and fitness/lifting. I've lost 90 pounds and am the strongest I've ever been.

They actually went there, and even Scalise who was the debate partner didn't push back.

This is the sort of 'war hysteria' bullshit I and other's warned the Dems might try to pull; they are going to try to say any criticism of Biden is helping Russia.

so are they going to do a formal declaration of war?

Because I am really fucking tired of these endless police actions.

That would be a fun debate to watch.

The usual dove suspects: "We need a war!"
The usual hawk suspects: "Hold on a sec, let's think about this for a bit."

Pretty hypothetical, but assuming we make it this far, I can already see wars abroad being added to the list of issues in 2024.

It’d be a real flip from 2004, but a battle between pro-war Democrats who take a hardline stance against Russia, and MAGA Republicans who’d prefer to stay out of Eastern Europe strikes me as more and more likely. (You could also swap out “Russia” for “Iran”, or “Eastern Europe” for “the Middle East”, but either way, the through-line is the same.)

How about no, and you stop your glowy posts?
Dude, I am in the military in a unit that will go if war is declared because we are the spear to the shield.
How is it glowy when it is the truth?
If we go to war with Russia, China will see our focus on Russia and then invade Taiwan, and then we use the Navy and Marines on tjem and the Army and AF on the European theater.
Only thing to take China out of play.
Without war China will find way to prop themselves up.

Seconded.

I don't know about you, but I'd rather not have my skin melt off because the nukes were finally let loose. Or, y'know, be drafted into a war no one will win for that exact reason, when my time is better spent making the most of my youth, or at least having one last hug with my family before the bombs drop.
