i feel like the majority of tumblr is so anti-republican because they have a loose concept of the differences between republicans and democrats ((hint: most people tend to go off of problematic stereotypes instead of just learning a thing)). now it seems like political parties are more-so a personality trait rather than a neutral idea
you can have shit republicans like you can have shit democrats, all in all they’re shit people. (also goes for vice versa)
i guess the moral of the story is to not judge someone by their political party INSTEAD of their idealism. go with a plan that offers a solution instead of remaining stubborn to one political party, that’s just ignorant.
tl;dr: core ideas/values from political parties are neutral, ideas that stem from personal (commonly radical) bias, opinion and experience- ideas that are commonly regarded as crimes against human rights or the constitution ((then again those aforementioned “”solutions”” arent typically regarded as solutions since they help nothing.))
solutions and ideas do not come only from one source. if you think that anyone and everyone that represents your political party is doing something right simply by being in that political party- you’re the problem.
in short, you’ll eventually find that generalizing people by their non-radical values (i.e. things like community, social responsibility, individual rights, what you portray as justice) doesn’t work for the betterment of a society because it lacks a sense of community?? a general collaboration of ideas, even
"this white boy is cute as hell..here take my number"
