Lefties will never work with anyone Caitlin because they are ideologues and as such are hooked on the idea of becoming the establishment. I’ve long believed that the labels left and right are obsolete, people are either for ever bigger government or against it. To me the establishment are the enemy, it does not matter whether the esdtablishment rule (here in Britain) through the Labour governments of Tony blair and Gordon brown or the Conservative led governments of David Cameron and Theresa May, the same people, whose names we do not know, are pulling the strings.
The media rant about war with Russia but the real war is the people versus the establishment.
And we’ve been letting the establishment make the rules for too long.
I’m often called right wing or a right wing extremist because I opposed uncontrolled or mass immigration. And yet I have more in common politically with former Greek finance minister Yannis Varoufakis than with any of Britain’s current crop of leading politicians.
I come across many people online however, who will not grant a hearing to anyone who does not agree with them on every ‘progressive’ sacred cow on their agenda.
