Yesterday, I reread a classic favorite of mine, called Allegory of the cave by Plato. I will not go into too much detail about it, but the central plot concerns the acquirement of knowledge — and how one goes about acquiring it.

The republicans would absolutely get an F in the knowledge category. This is because knowledge involves critical thinking and self-analysis. Republicans have proven time, and again they are incapable of doing that. If there is one thing we know, it’s that Republicans have learned nothing from their extreme flop in the midterms.

And flop they did. Yes, they won the house, but they lost the senate and won the House only by the skin of their teeth. The American people, for the most part, rejected them. But if there’s one thing we know about republicans, it is that they simply do not learn from their mistakes. They lack the elemental core of critical thinking.

We can see that in their utterly stupid doubling down on abortion bills. The GOP in the house passed two pieces of legislation that will go nowhere, both centered on abortion. Can you imagine? The issue that doomed the GOP in the midterms is the one they chose to concentrate on their first week in power. One might ask why. One might ask WHO would do this? My answer would be ones lacking in knowledge. Ones who are arrogant, who refuse to even look at themselves and their errors.


Neither of these bills will ever pass in the Senate. But the fact is that the republicans refusal to learn from their mistakes, their stubborn holding on to issues that are resoundingly unpopular show their weak spot. And it’s a gigantic weak spot. Their weak spot is knowledge. The fact is they simply don’t have any.

We can exploit this weakness as generals would in wartime. We have much knowledge. We know the GOP does not. And we know that they will continue to focus with laser-like precision on unpopular things the American people don’t want and never have wanted. This is how we win by turning their failures to our advantage.
