Damn this is depressing. I was really hoping there was at least one conservative here here that would have shown up to tell me that Trump doesnt represent them or Conservative Republican values.

That's a damn shame.

There are a great number of people who don't like Trump, but who also didn't like Obama. They take the best of what they can get from each administration, and deal with what they don't like from the same. I'm one of the millions.

Not everyone is one side or another, and you will likely feel more depression trying to stuff people into your preconceived little boxes with labels.

I consider myself relatively conservative when it comes to fiscal matters, more liberal when it comes to social matters. Most things are on a subject by subject basis.

The modern GOP resembles the modern DNC. Two parties with not a lot of sunshine between them.

I don't buy this false equivalency. Only one side coddles racists and gives tax breaks to billionaires. Seriously, If you look at the Modern Republican Partys voting history, you'd see the consistency they all have unanimously exhibited in ensuring that the policies that succeed are those which are detrimental to the vast majority of the non-rich blue-collar working population. The Democrats always in opposition to them.

You're right, but I am not here to discuss Obama and the Democratic leadership.

Such as the tax breaks where thousands of blue collar workers are receiving pay raises and bonuses, not because of some government mandate or handout, but from their employers due to the tax cuts? Are those the policies you are referring too?

Yes they are. Anything that promotes and economy that allows people to move away from government dependence, the Democrats always oppose. We are well aware of that.

The MSM has successfully brainwashed the left into believing that the Republicans are the biggest threat the world has ever seen.

People like Red State easily sucks up anything and everything he hears from the haters on the left. And he lets them drive him into a state of confused rage.

The left likes to talk about how divisive the right is, while disregarding the fact that 99% of our political media consists of divisive left wing haters.

News, talk shows, Comedy shows, Hollywood award shows, all foaming at the mouth with rage and hate for half of this country, the half they consider deplorable.

Thank you Hillary and Barrack, you have done an impeccable job. Maybe the next Liberal administration can take it another step farther, and actually get us into a civil war.
