Despite the rhetoric to the contrary, there is a lot of overlap between more ‘normal’ people on these two camps. I am NOT talking about the antifa, SJW types of the left, nor beer-swilling, pickup driving, god loving, idiots of the right
1 Environment –
This is a big one. It is THE issue of old school leftists (which are dying adimist the SJW, ‘all men rape’ onslaught). Most right types (esp the alt-right) can agree that a clean environment is a good thing, and that cashing it in for a bottom line is not a good trade. Making environmental moves is a good way to get allies with the left.
2. Worker rights – Again, old school here. Bring back regulated hours, overtime etc. With the rush towards salary no one matters anymore other than a cog. Have fun working your 50k a year, but working 60+hr a week, meaning you are making less than around 18/hr. No one wants to work more, only corporations.
1 Guns – This is by far the biggest. Old school democrats really dropped the ball when they gave up this issue (and the whole south with it). The average gun owner is not going to shoot up a school, that’s just how it is. If we want to beat the real enemies, bankers, YKWs etc leftists are going to have to get over this. You can’t take back every gun, might as well use what it out there.
2. God/religion. – Yes more leftists are atheist or new age, and rightly so criticize Christianity as a slave religion. They aren’t earning friends this way. Just keep the mouth shut, and let them believe whatever, and in a lot of ways, the new agers believer an entity created all this, so cant they agree on that?
These are the big ones. For the most part we are in this together, we really need to be allied. Right wingers chomping at the bit to ‘shoot leftists’ does nothing other than further goldman sachs type agenda.
