Gen Z
Gen Z
Gen Z is the generation born beginning in 2000. They are the largest and most diverse generation is US history, as well as one of the most politically engaged breaking youth voter turnout records in 2018, 2020, and 2022. Most frequently voting for Democrats, the majority of Gen Z identify as political independents. They are complete digital natives who have grown up with social media as a major means of connection and communication, and, because of that, are more connected to peers internationally than any previous generation. They have also grown up under the threat of climate change, school mass shootings, and a global pandemic. Despite these challenges, they are funny, ironic, positive, organized, solutions-oriented, and an excellent reason to be hopeful for the future. In short, R2 loves Gen Z.
Democratic Party
Democratic Party
The only major political party in the US that believes in democracy or that the United States currently is one, as the GOP en masse refuses to acknowledge that Joe Biden is the legitimately elected POTUS. Currently humiliating the Republican Party in the 2022 midterm elections.
US Midterm Elections
US Midterm Elections
In 2022, the Midterm Elections were an opportunity for Republicans across the country to enjoy the fruits of their labors from the past six years by having the worst midterm election showing by the party out of power in 40 years. Seems Americans like democracy. We cannot pretend that means they'll abandon violence, fascism, and autocracy. Also see: GOP in disarray. Also see: FAFO
US Presidential Elections
US Presidential Elections
The election of the president and the vice president of the United States is an indirect election in which citizens of the United States who are registered to vote in one of the fifty U.S. states or in Washington, D.C., cast ballots not directly for those offices, but instead for members of the Electoral College.

And yes, we know His Imperial Weirdness changed the name to X, but we're not calling it that because even wackadoodle-billionaire-fascist-huggers can't always get what they want.

    Joe and Alex discuss yet another fiasco for the MAGA House GOP. How Democrats were able to turn the Hur hearing against the Republicans in their own hearing - and what it means long term. No wonder another GOP congressman is retiring. What's 50-60% of 2.9 million anti-Trump Republican votes? No wonder Joe thinks Trump's screwed. By the time you read this paragraph, Trump will have owed at least another thirty bucks of interest... And of course, the veepstakes we can't even believe we're discussing.
