I don’t care about his opinions.
I couldn’t even read the whole article.

I care about his opinions and read his speil. So if someone argues those points and cites him as authority or relevance o knows more than they do, I can quickly and easily destroy those arguments and the basis claims for authority.

The best way to destroy your enemies arguments are to know them in advance. Just like a defense and counterattack.

Defeat the enemy by knowing him better than he knows himself.

I would encourage everyone to go vote in the Dec. 6th runoff. It's an important vote either way.

If you don't like how the Democrats are governing and want to slow them down, vote for Walker and we might get a 50-50 Senate. That means shared committee chairs and that means, lots of Senate stuff gets slowed down. Yes, I know, Kamala breaks ties on votes for legislation. But having Walker in the Senate helps conservatives and the GOP.

If you like how the Democrats are doing, or perhaps you just don't like Walker much, you could stay home or vote for Warnock, or vote for someone else. That means a 51-49 Senate, and Dems pretty much can run the Senate as before.

Vote your conscience, vote how you see fit. But remember that a vote for a candidate is often strategic, and not a love note to that candidate.

That broke my brain.

Why?

Isn't having a 50-50 Senate better for conservatives, and gun owners in particular, then having a Senate that is 51-49 for the Democrats?
Isn't they're more opportunity to throw a wrench into the gears of Socialism (or at least drag our feet a little bit on this country's march toward socialism) if Herschel Walker wins the Senate seat?

For each item of legislation or executive appointment: Only one democrat has to break party ranks in a 50-50 Senate. Two if 49-51.

When I read that, the quote by Thomas Paine, "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.", came to mind

This is pretty accurate.

Sure seems to me that is about where it should go on the nearest to this scale above. The idea of the state controlling everything and telling the people its for the good of the people fits right between the state controlling everything but letting the people think they do and the state controlling everything and admitting they do with no concerns for the people.

Anarchy is no govt and totalitarian is all govt so you tell me.
On a 1D axis, claiming either major party is more pro-freedom than the other is akin to a bar fight over who gets to lock everybody in (from the inside) while the building is burning. If I want freedom of religion and weed and less military spending, the Republicans look way more totalitarian than the Democrats.

I mean I like to think I keep up on things, but what freedoms are the Republicans currently dangling for me in this runoff?

No argument. Hence why both parties on that scale are near totalitarian. Im very much of the belief that both parties want the same result they just want the power while we get there.
