>>3763201>jimmy i was really involved in berkeley, if you worked for the left youd come away just as disillusioned you massive retard.
I did work for the "left." Played both sides. Worked on Obama 2008 at college. Partied with the Republicans I got to know a bunch after the election, got muh foot in the door with the Republican Party of muh state, then worked on a 2010 congressional campaign, spent a lot of that summer working to organize all of the black Republican congressional candidates to get money, before Michael Steele told muh candidate on the Fire Pelosi bus that they were directing so much money into suppression and it was so effective that there was no interest in dumping money on trying to promote black republicans. So I then spent most of 2011 just getting fucking paid to sit around in an office and slinging emails for the RNC and all their PACs and think tanks shit. Then I went back to the Obama campaign in 2012 but they didn't really trust me after they realized I had been an RNC/RPV guy.
Like I don't really think of the Democrats as "the left." Most everything Obama did was a conservative policy before he did it and "conservatives" called it socialism. Hillary Clinton was a boring, corporate centrist.
But that doesn't mean that "it's all the same." In my experience, almost everyone that volunteers and works for the democrats does so because they have the best intent for what they think will make the country and the future better. When I worked with Republicans, it was a much more cynical, toxic mindset. So many of the people I worked with were literally only into politics for the money and opportunities. Every fucking thing Republicans do is a goddamn racket. Let's make some yard signs: create an LCC, transfer $15,000 from the PAC account to LCC, hire a signmaker to make signs for $900. There isn't anything that I did in Republican politics that wasn't a scheme. The election-industrial complex is real as fuck.
