And completely crush the pretenses that the Republican party supposedly stands for? Install the MAGA crowd as a new party? Take on all the risk that declaring himself a dictator incurs when the present system already works perfectly for the US elite?
That is like saying Biden is also a Neo-Nazi for following up on many of Trump's policies. Deliberately Blurring between the various right-wing factions strengthens them, it does not help you or the left as a whole.
Except, going by historical experience, that never happens - 'harm reduction' becomes a policy in and of itself, the Left is accused of being too radical/unrealistic, and anyone actually trying to push ruling parties to the left is sidelined. Hence the Bernie/Corbyn debacles.
If you do not have the strength to stand up to tyranny right now, you do not have the strength to do so in four or eight years.
In fact, the right also uses this time to prepare as well because they are fighting on home ground: They know that for every centrist that goes over to the left, two, three, or four go over to the right - that is what is meant by the 'Liberal-Fascist Bargain', whereby Liberals begin to see Fascism more and more as the 'only way out', while few if any of them actually become disenchanted enough to join the ranks or provide any sort of support to the Left. If you are not willing to undermine the system, then all you are doing is delaying the conversion of these centrists or reducing the number that convert - you are not increasing your own side's forces, you are merely delaying the opposite faction.
Except that is not what happens - the right wing concoct a narrative that they 'rightly deserved to win' and double down, and the left get slapped with the fact that 'Haha, told you guys we would win with this moderate but not with your chosen candidate!' which only serves to push them further into the conviction that, yeah, you are too radical/utopian/inflexible and they are the wise, enlightened centrists willing to compromise and 'actually achieve something'.
Functionally, you are not pushing them left - you are voting for their candidate, supporting their policies, and helping them achieve their aims. They have effectively pushed you right.

Unity in Diversity!
Note: New Prague Workers Republic served as founder moderator for this election but was unable to make an RMB post as they are occupied at the current moment. Prague still did all of the moderation and confirming - I'm simply posting it on their behalf.
This is what Slavichistan is supposed to look like in the future. See, my idea is that if a society can progress far enough to which humans are good, happy people, then we can adopt freedoms and eliminate all forms of capitalism.
The following nations are exceeding the endorsement cap:
If you are mentioned here please try to seek reducing your endorsement count. There's also a good chance that all you need to is endorse Podria, so if needed please do so.
At first Glance Ceodor may seem like an Utopia, but then you have to sit back and look at the tax rates, which is 88.7% that is a lot of money going to taxes, and while it has decreased, it is only slowly getting decreased.
20% is going to Education, 19% is to administration, 14.2 to Health Care and 10.9% to Wellfare, with Defense at the lowest of the catagorys with an measly 1.9%
Biotopia and Forecea
We should have a strong leadership (I am not doubting the politburo and the supreme leader) that may lead us to war and negotiations against the west block and other capitalist bastards and making communism different from anrchism while being a secular state
Like Yong 97.9% tax rate
Hey everyone. I’ve been laid low with COVID for the past few days. Just popping in to say I am recovering and wish you all well.
In Unity, Bio
Is a high tax rate really a problem when one doesn't need to spend as much of their disposable-income (for healthcare, etc) as in, say, the US?
i'm no expert but i'll take a guess and say yes.
True. The goal of my socialist nation's here is exactly to fulfill with almost total taxes what you would expect to dispose privately on your own through otherwise private services. In other words, to converge people's work-earned societal value into the unique mindpower of lesser in numbers, fairly called "enterpreneurs", via state owned or state subsidized industries, with the sole purpose of cycling their higher-earned societal value back to people by giving them better services.
Good luck to Colombia and long live socialism.
WA Vote Recommendation
Despite my immense distain for the WA and especially the SC, I am recommending a vote FOR Condemn Lily. While Condemnations are usually seen as a bad thing, for raiders (which Lily is), it's seen as a badge of honour. Putting aside the accomplishments of Lily and their prowess in R/D gameplay, they are a fundamentally anti-fascist military force that have worked with The Red Fleet and Antifa on several occasions and Miravana, the author of the resolution is a citizen of our ally, The Communist Bloc. For these reasons, I am casting my vote for this SC resolution, and I hope you will do the same.
📊 June 2022 Legislative By-Election 📊
As per the Vacant Position Act, nominations for the June 2022 Legislative By-Election are now open to fill the position vacated by The Grand Union Kingdom. A Member of the General Assembly is responsible for proposing and voting on legislative matters including bills, amendments, joke legislation, and legislative motions as well as election of the Speaker. All MGAs are eligible to serve as Speaker, and the position of Speaker is currently vacant.
Candidates will be disqualified if they depart the region for more than one day during the election or if they are not residing in the region at the commencement of voting on June 24th. A candidate may withdraw at any time prior to the voting period by announcing their intention to do so on the RMB.
Nominations will be open for three days and will be conducted right here on the RMB. All that is required is a simple nomination, but a platform including reasons to vote for you and a plan for your term is highly encouraged.
Unity in Diversity!
I must say I am a bit conflicted. The act of condemning the Region of Lily seems wrong, as their actions are noble and just at their core, not to mention aligned with our motives of "leftward expansion", but, on the other hand, as stated by our honorable WA Secretary Podria, the Region of Lily would enjoy a condemnation and wear it as a badge of accomplishment and recognition. For this reason I am hesitantly casting my vote for the condemnation of the Region of Lily.
As per the announcement by our founder account, I will be running for the vacant position in the GA! My platform is here
Who am i
I don't like saying much about myself personally but I'm a democratic socialist and reformist
What is your experience
I'm currently serving as an ambassador for
The West Pacific which I've held for about 5-6 months
Why should i vote for you
During this term I would like to pass a (joke) law declaring all creatures, dogs, horses, mice, spiders. You name it, as equally cute and deserving of recognition.
I also aim to add amendments to existing laws as well to make them more workable for our assemblians.
