The "fight" lane and the "hope" lane







Anyways, the thread keeps going and is interesting. Over the years I've noticed that "I'll fight for you" is a sign of a doomed campaign. I'm not sure why people keep using it.

primary today, I would vote for:

4. I think it is time for a fight

 

American Democracy is at risk, the Republicans are proving that they will go to any lengths to protect their wealthy plutarchy.

I really, really want a fighter this time around. This time, let's not bring a knife to a gunfight.

5. Everybody always says that, and the people who talk about "fighting" always lose

 

It's not how you win elections.

6. A good fighter does not necessarily say the word "fight"

 

Machiavelli advised that a prince should appear kind in public and do his dirty deeds in private.

7. Buttigieg, may not talking about fighting, but he picked a fight with the religious right.
