But you really need justification to buy these expensive battery cars.

This is the Prius 2.0, remember the minor crisis in the 2000's? i do. Gas went up and they pushed $30,000+ vehicles as a solution.
It's manipulation. The Green Agenda is the money in your pocket.
I used to have RC Cars as a kid. Grasshopper ftw

I don't want to drive one around though. That's lame.

He’s confused because his use of the NOUN of Republican makes it sound like an adjective when it’s not, it’s a noun

I’m using a NOUN when I say Democrat media. I could say “Democratic media”, but that is more commonly used to describe the form of government of electing officials, which is why I choose to use the NOUN

Yet another example of public education’s failures

"Democrat" describes the type of media in that usage, media is the noun. You're using it as an adjective, my good chum.

No because Democratic can also be used as an adjective for the Democratic Party. Look it up:

“adjective
relating to the Democratic Party.
"a Democratic fundraiser"

I’m specifically choosing to use it as a noun to avoid confusing it with the more common use of the term Democratic as a form of government
