20. Thank you. That's what I've been trying to argue for years.

 

Why does anyone think we can insult these people into switching to voting for us? Or that it achieves anything to make the people this is aimed at admit they were wrong to vote Green in the PAST?

We don't demand repentance from the imaginary "centrist independents" or "moderate suburban Republican" demographics some of our strategists are still obsessed with winning over. We don't do that with the Dems who voted for either Bush, Reagan, or Nixon. Why do it ONLY to those who voted for third-party presidential candidates in the past?

Why single THEM out?

It's not as though we were simply owed their votes.
