It wouldn't be funny if it wasn't so accurate.
Tim, how many people want to be fast food cashiers? How many people dedicate their careers to being the best fast food cashier they can be?
People want jobs. People want money. People want security. But no one really wants to be a fast food cashier. Just like no one really wanted to pick cotton in the fields, but before we had mechanical harvesters, it had to be done. No one really wanted to shovel horse shit off city streets, but before we had cars, it had to be done.
The benefit of automation is freeing people from meaningless jobs that they don't want to be doing, but have to be done by someone.
The horse-shit-shovelers who lost their jobs might have had some temporary financial insecurity when people stopped riding horses through city streets, and their job became unnecessary. But ultimately many of them were happier to work a different job where they weren't shoveling shit all day. Asking 'would you like fries with that' will be exactly the same. Some people will complain about losing their jobs, but more people will move into a new job that they are ultimately happier with.
"It's frustrating to me because they're supposed to be the people representing me! I've always been on the Democrats' side!"
Is that really something that someone who refers to himself as 'the milquetoast fence-sitter' should be saying? Why have you always been on the Democrats' side? Surely a fence-sitter, someone in the middle, would agree with one side sometimes, and the other side other times.
Voting on principle means voting for the best candidate, regardless of party affiliation. Whereas you, Tim, seem to be obsessed with the idea of 'fixing' the Democratic party to change it into the party that aligns with your ideals, because you can't imagine yourself 'turning traitor' and supporting a party that is actually closer to your ideals now.
Politicians should have sovereign immunity to post absolutely anything. I encourage them to do so. Learning your representatives honest feelings on issues is an important part of democracy, and making dumb posts will help them get voted out faster.
That said, for anything that is provably false, libelous, etc. they should be required to publish a retraction and apology. Learning which people easily believe fake news and jump to conclusions is also an important part of democracy.
This article is so dishonest. People can understand each other. They can change.
I know, because I grew up in a blue state. I registered Democrat. I wasn't irredeemable, I was uninformed. I didn't care about politics back then. But I was willing to listen.
Now I do my research. I read both sides. I google every candidate, even for my unimportant local elections. Now I vote for whomever I believe would do the best job. Whomever would be best for America, and all Americans, regardless of what party affiliation they hold. That's why Trump currently has my vote for 2020.
