But it was republicans that voted against the price gouging act screwing Americans .

Yep, that's something Democrats should consider campaigning on. "Hey, we want to do this. They blocked it. Why trust them?"

Everyday they should be posting about it . Everyday they should post about the high cost of groceries and how high corporate profits now are and post the names of every republican that voted to screw the middle glass . Every day , over and over .

But their “news” don’t show it at all. Hence closing a chance to show up.

If 'they' won't do it, then maybe it is up to everyone else to do it on a local and individual level, at least.

On multiple topics...

Infrastructure

The border

Price Gouging

Bodily autonomy

u/Heavy_Arm_7060 28d ago

Definitely hammer them on price gouging and the border, think those two will resonate super well. All should, but given the right wing media loves to play up the border, and price gouging resonates with basically everyone, those seem like the most promising.

Democrats LOVE to pull defeat from the jaws of victory, so they'll never do that

u/Hamburderler 28d ago

This is nonsense.

Go follow biden on social media and you'll see him post about every issue and how he's trying to fight against the GOP, the whole entire mainstream media, and billionaires,, to lower prices, forgive loans, and improve working families lives.

The only group pulling victory from the Democrats is the fucking media who never give credit and play Trump clips 24/7.

The dnc tries to educate people on how they passed bills to help working class families but everyone focuses on bullshit like Janet yellan saying no to taxing billionaires at one hundred percent or gaza.

GTFO with tried nothing. Biden had a boarder policy, a voting rights act, loan forgiveness, and other things killed by Congress or the supreme Court that would have improved america.

u/TheBirminghamBear 28d ago

It's really demonstrative of

  1. A population that doens't understand how politics or the economy works at even a fundamental level, and
  2. The profoundly short memory span of the average voter.

Let me be very clear here. Donald Trump does not have the mental capacity to do anything and we have the past ten years of evidence of this fact. This is a scientific fact, he's a fucking idiot and he will make the economy worse, because he already did before, and he's no more intelligent now.

He cannot even testify in court because he can't mantain control over his emotoins or thoughts for even two minutes at a time to make cogent judgments.

I'm not making this up. In any scenario where there are consequences, like under oath, Donald Trump doees whatever possible to avoid doing it, and when he does do it, he often explodes in an emotional outburst.

He is a shambling fucking disaster. None of the people in his orbit have any actual plans or policies for the economy. They want to build a wlal and ban immigrants - catstrophic for the economy, by the way ,just look at Florida in the recent history.

They want to ban anbortion. And pornography. The latter is a massive busniess, the former is a vital medical procuedure the lack of which will get people killed and harm the productivity and fertility rates of the entire nation.

Donald Trump is af ucking idiot. There isn't a headline about him that should run where that isn't the first part of the headline because its true. Its true in a way its never been true of any President that came before him, this person is a drooling fucking moron and he will drive the country and the economy into the broad side of a mountain if he isn't in jail first because he's a fucking idiot.

u/JessicaDAndy 27d ago

I think that’s unfair. Donald Trump has a cogent plan for the economy.

He wants to raise tariffs on foreign goods, take political control of the Federal Reserve, weaken the Dollar, and place undocumented workers into camps until they self deport.

All of which will make inflation worse.

It’s a plan, that sucks for the people that buy the hats, shoes and apparently diapers now.

u/JerkMeerf 28d ago

A question must be asked: how much of it is actual inflation and how much of it is corporate greed

u/FriedThrawns 28d ago

Just think about this from the business owners point of view. If I continue to raise prices, you won't blame me, you'll blame the guy who wants to regulate me and raise my taxes and vote for the guy who wants to deregulate me and lower my taxes.

The rich in America really got it made

143

u/facforlife 28d ago

The underlying isn't even true. The US has lower inflation, higher economic growth than most other developed countries. It is working. It just isn't as fast as people want so they think Biden doesn't know what he's doing I guess? And then you look at Trump's ideas of more tax cuts which would only worse inflation and you're left wondering: just how fucking bottomless is the stupidity of the average American?

It's kind of a great system for the GOP. They screw the economy up but it doesn't fully manifest until a Dem is in office. People blame the Dem for the current situation and vote Republican. Rinse and repeat.

Can someone eli5 how tax cuts raise inflation? I'm just curious as to how that works, not that I don't believe it.

4

u/facforlife 28d ago

The general idea behind inflation is that it's caused by an increase in the supply of money, aka printing money. When people have more money they spend it more leading to inflation.

Well what happens when you cut taxes?... 

1

u/friendbrotha 27d ago

Makes sense, I just assumed because tax cuts from Repubs only really go to the wealthy it wouldn’t have much of an effect on the country’s overall spending

3

u/barowsr 28d ago

If you have more money to spend, you’ll probably spend it.

If everyone has more money to spend , and the supply of stuff stays relatively constant, then demand for that stuff rises, as will the prices for that stuff.

Prices rising, inflation.

u/NumerousTaste 28d ago

Trump blew up the budget, put on tariffs, and cut taxes for the wealthy! How do people not know this? It's all factual! So disappointing.

60% of 60% of voters is a roundabout way to say about 36 percent of voters, which are the same group of people that were going to vote Trump anyway. People need to remember Trump got 47% of the vote in 2020 and is poised to do similarly or better. These people are out there in massive numbers.

u/MinuteDachsund 27d ago

Seems poised to do worse. Has not gained any significant numbers since they let republicans die from covid and tried an insurrection.

And then look at what happened in 2018, 2020 and 2022, and the majority of special elections. We keep going back to 2016 as if it wasn't a fluke, but it was. It's just that that fluke ended up being enormously consequentional and those consequences continue to reverberate across American institutions and society. Simply put, we fucked around and found out. Plenty of Americans are absolute fucking idiots, but that said, the GOP hasn't exactly been on a winning streak in actual elections of late. There's reason to be concerned, but there's also reason to have hope. Every single person needs to vote, and get everyone they know registered and voting too. The GOP Nazis are beatable, but we all need to show up to make it happen.

And why is this? The media says so. The corrupt right wing media.

u/Serious-Orchid5069 27d ago

The media is 1000x to blame for this. Do you know any trump supporters personally? Because I do and they get ALL their news from right wing propaganda sites, which is ALL of them. They are not plugged in to anything but Newsmax and Fox, who btw continues to spew lies to their audience. They watch people like Megyn Kelly who has the brain of a fruit fly with the things she says. These trump supporters do not even know about 90% of the reality of how the economy works or that trump is a moron. He is allowed to lie about every subject, and they believe what he says. They don't' watch congress in action to see how awful they are as a whole. And the icing on this terrible tasting cake is that they are also made up of full blown racists who literally hate anyone who isn't whyte. The only thing that will get us out of this potential mess is that trump ages out before Biden does.

u/Ddude147 28d ago

The taboo against talking politics has created a nation full of ignorant morons who know little about politics, government and current events.

Fvcking idiots think POTUS can wave a magic wand and prices will fall. Or interest rates will be cut.

It's called free-market capitalism for a reason.

Look at China, where Xi dictates policy and it happens. He's an authoritarian. China's economy is in the toilet. Millions of young people are unemployed and unwilling to marry and procreate. The result? A dwindling, aging population that won't be able to care for the elderly.

A real-estate bubble burst, with people so mad they're protesting in the streets. China was supposed to dominate the 21st century.

Their GDP hovers around $18 trillion, while USA has blown past $25 trillion. USA per capita GDP dwarfs that of China.

The USA is dominant in many areas. GDP. Productivity. Tech, particularly AI. Culture. Military.

We've seen authoritarianism. It doesn't work.

Americans seriously need to educate themselves on government and economics. Quit being morons who are gullible to manipulation and conspiracy theories.

They're the Roman plebs cheering Commodious as he puts on another show while the entire empire falls to shit.

u/rExcitedDiamond 28d ago

Don’t encourage this kind of obnoxious talk. Trying to reduce people’s very real economic/material concerns to something as insulting as “cheaper Doritos” is pretty insulting, and terrible optics.

You have to learn how to justify why your candidate is the better one for people’s pocketbooks rather than saying people are stupid for caring about their pocketbooks. One very easy thing to point out, for example, is that the protectionism that trump usually espouses would lock the American economy out from cheap goods

9

u/StingerAE 28d ago

Sure, cost of living isva real issue for many Americans.  But what's clearly wrong is that there is no chance in helll of Don the con doing anything about the price of doritos or indeed anything much at all beyond pardoning himself, grifting and golfing.  Maybe the odd job his good freind Vlad asks for.  On any measure and irrespective of your view on bidens position on an issue, Trump would be objectively worse if elected.  

Anyone even contemplating Don can't be reached by discussion or debate or on any level requiring any part of rhe brain north or forward of the basal ganglia.  They aren't serious people.

u/Marjorine22 28d ago

There is some truth to what you're saying.

Pod Save America (actual Obama-era dem operatives) has spent quite some time preaching the point that running on saving democracy is a loser for the Democrats. People see $7 bags of Doritos or whatever? That they will vote on. We can mock it all we want, but if people feel like they can't afford the same groceries they could? It is a BIG thing to them.

In most cases? A more normal, sane-ish Republican would be a heavy favorite this fall. They would not be trying to pardon themselves, overthrow the government or sell secrets to Putin. Reddit would hate them with a passion, but we'd still have a democracy to take back in 4 years.

But that ship has sailed. Every election cannot be a vote to keep a democratic system. This is unsustainable.

I will be voting for Biden like my life depends on it. I am as lefty Dem as they come. I am afraid it might not matter this time.

Poor demented fools. The only thing that orange stain wants to do is anything that will benefit people making as much money as he does.

They all talk about Biden and taxes but the thing is is 95% of us are under 400,000 a year and won't get touched by those taxes.

The tax implementations that Trump did during his administration are just now kicking in, and that's why people used to get a refund every year now find that they owe two grand or more, and that's not on Biden that's on Trump.

The sooner people understand that most of the stuff going on in the economy is because of the previous administration then the more they'll recognize that you want to keep this going by keeping Democrats in charge, I don't mean to be partisan but the history is there.

Republicans do not govern, serve themselves, and the country suffers for it, and then while the Democrats try to clean up the pieces they get hammered for one term because of what occurred prior to that.

I'm at the point now where I would make a bet like this, let's say I'm a millionaire, I'll put up half a million dollars to any regular normal person on the street who after 4 years of the Democrats owning the house the Senate and the presidency that they don't find that things are better than they are right now.

maybe I’m missing something, but it feels misrepresentative to portray concerns about inflation as “cheaper Doritos”.

Trump brought us COVID, massive job losses, a crappy stock market and racism but somehow I hear that we were better off back then. Riiiiigth. Oh I forgot massive $7 trillion debt and higher taxes for paycheck earners.

When Bobert successfully removed the protections from threatened wild wolves so they could be persecuted by farmers she said "well what do you want? Wolves or hamburgers?" as a conservation biooogisg it just blew my mind

About 35% of the American people actually think Biden is responsible for repealing Roe v Wade, and in Arizona only 20% of the people give Biden credit for the Chips Act that resulted in $50 billion worth of investment in computer chip factories that are being built there. I'm starting to believe you get the government you deserve.

No one is going to lower prices. They may freeze, but they will not go down.

Not even a choice between democracy and cheaper doritos, more like a choice between democracy and the promise of cheaper doritos made by a man who lies almost every time he speaks.

Just a reminder that Pornography is one of the biggest businesses in the world. It's arguably the biggest on the Internet because most of the Internet is porn.

Honestly never understood why people have such a problem with it especially considering that as long as the individuals are consenting to everything then they can have at it and it doesn't really affect anyone either because it's your choice whether you watch it or not.

To be fair as well prostitution is basically the oldest job in the world and some people just really like sex so you myswell get paid doing it. America is just a hypocritical society in general.

Like for instance people find gore and excessive violence fine but they go crazy when it comes to being naked and anything related to sex.

Trump was unquestionably the least competent president in the history of the Republic. How anyone could overlook that fact is incomprehensible to me.

I just want to be able to afford fast food again. Daddy needs some McDonalds.

I’d rather die of heart disease than socioeconomics.

Ok but you've still failed to connect your higher priced burger to Biden, or what you think Trump would do to make your burger cheaper

Well we know he'd do fuck all.

It is the same approach flat earthers use.  "There is a flaw in [my understanding of] the globe THEREFORE the earth is flat despite not explaining the same "issue" either nor any of a million other observations"

I have no idea what you're talking about, but what do you think he should do?

u/Jungatand 28d ago

It was in this moment that I realized sarcasm isn’t well-received on the internet. My third-person reference to myself as daddy wasn’t enough and I will make sure to lay it on harder with more references.

If that fails to work, I might give have to see what other people are doing to make it work. Other suggestions are appreciated.

The problem with sarcasm is that since Trump things that seemed absurd are now just GOP policy and mindsets

I’m not trying to be snarky or condescending, but am just genuinely curious why so many people think the economy (wages, inflation, general cost of living) will be better under a Trump administration? I’ll admit that I lean pretty heavily left, so maybe it’s just the results of inadvertently being in an echo chamber, but have Trump or the GOP proposed any policies that would actually improve the situation? Or is it just that they’re making the normal vague political promises that they’ll make everything perfect without actually explaining how?

Conservative legislators typically create policy that lowers that the tax burden of corporations and the ultra wealthy, who will then theoretically use the surplus to expand their business, creating more jobs and or lowering costs to consumers. That said, taxes aren’t where we’re getting fucked right now and neither candidate wants to campaign on fighting corporate greed in the same month the Dow hits an all time high

Half of America is dumb and the other half is dumber. The other half will happily install trump again and establish him as a dynastic ruler (I will personally be voting trump too to accelerate the downfall of America)
