[ Politics ] Open Question : Are conservatives losing?

Let’s see: Their racism is getting more awareness. Racist cops are finally being held accountable. Many police departments are getting defunded (just like conservatives unnecessarily defunded school districts for many years). BLM is a growing movement despite their relentless denunciation of the movement. Racists are losing their jobs for posting racist crap on social media. Trump will lose in November. #BlackLivesMatter #Resist Racists are getting charged for making false police calls on innocent black people.

Every phone I have ever bought has been unlocked so this question might sound trivial. I want to buy a used phone for app development and testing, and I don’t care about cellular network connectivity. Looking on eBay, carrier locked phones are significantly cheaper.

You’ve always disliked hardcore conservative Pat Robertson.
