“[In their recent self-critique,] the RNC [Republican National Convention] concludes that Republican candidates must connect with women voters using “softer language,” fewer “graphs and charts” and by assembling a strong list of female surrogates to do media appearances. That’s right. Republicans conclude that to win women voters they must use their “inside” voice and not bombard those ladybrains with all that “information.” Oh, and rather than actually place women in positions of leadership within the party, they plan to just pluck a few pretty faces to put in front of the cameras.”—Jessica Pieklo, “RNC Concludes Women Voters Need To Hear ‘Softer’ Voices, Fewer ‘Facts’”
That Moment When You Realize:
Democrats want a Democracy, a system wherein if there’s enough popular support, any and all rights can be removed or restricted because “The Majority Rules”.
Republicans want a Republic, a system wherein even if the Majority clamors for it, certain rights can never be violated because they are protected from the Majority by Law.
The sooner you learn this, the better off you are.
