Re: Why don't you try to.make an actual argument to discuss.
It's not a question of how many people you have, it's how you lead. All other things being equal, of course, a leader can do more with more votes behind them. But all other things are rarely equal!
Even in the minority, a well-led bloc of legislators can accomplish a lot. For example, if the minority had been able to persuade Senator Collins to vote differently on a certain Supreme Court nomination when she was in the majority, things would be very different now. On the other hand, a poorly-led majority, like what Senator Schumer has, might as well not be a majority at all.

Just another reason it's not worth checking in here very often.

It's like you didn't understand anything I said.

Re: Why don't you try to.make an actual argument to discuss.
Willfully ignorant seems to fit

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

The post you're replying to is sarcasm. Maybe the planet that YOU are from doesn't have dictionaries? Or is your mother tongue Klingon?
