That's easy. Trump's cult members are totally devoted to him and those same people are the base for GOP in congress. They're deathly afraid that if they break with Trump the base will dump them and they would rather P on their mama's grave than lose power.


One additional comment, "P on their mama's grave" is totally classless and truly does not represent either political ideology I described.

There is one side of the divide that wants socialism (or Democratic Socialism) and sees "Wealth redistribution" as the way to accomplish what needs accomplishment (all that "free" stuff). The same folks  like strong control over the economy by the government.

 

On the other side are the limited government, free market Capitalist people aka Conservatives.

 

Now these are two perfectly valid albeit different perspectives. Which is a cult?? And why??

I do believe that you don't hate anyone in particular just as you are always claiming for everyone else to hate anything that you don't like. so, let's be clear on this point. NO one hates anyone here. we simply don't agree on the issues.

NOw, that we have cleared the air.

If you post  still has respect for the Constitution and the Institutions of this country, How come you r post can still condone the  fact that many in this Administration have made the decision to not to comply with issued subpoenas whether they are right of wrong. Is the compliance that I am speaking about. Why do you support those that are not complying with established laws?

The post above seems not be clear in what they mean and believe. One can not like certain things or persons but one cannot blame the whole institution for the deeds of some. and think that they can simply ignore what those laws state.


That was an inquiry of scout who posted, "they will support any infantile nincompoop who promises to hurt the people they hate".

 

 

As to who hates who - "Trump sucks" is not a term of endearment. "ToadPOTUS" - same deal. Constantly finding the few imperfect police officers to make a big thing out of, even dredging up years old cases, suggests a hatred of the police in general.

 

The general posting about President Trump is not like it was about President Obama. that was about policy disagreements. With President Trump is is far more personal and like the Mueller investigation, "find something - anything".

 

So yes, "hatred seems a kinder term than insanity.

What would you have said if 2 1/2 years ago, before Trump was elected, someone told you the Republican Party would completely reverse themselves on the following issues?

 

  • They would no longer make any effort to reduce the deficit
  • They would no longer provide support to NATO Allies
  • They wouild no longer offer 100% support to Law Enforcement (as in the FBI & Justice Dept).
  • They would no longer uphold the rule of law
  • They would abandon their decades long philosopy of free trade and no tariffs
  • The party of so called famly values would elect a man who has no concept of family values

Don't loose hope, those so called Republicans are not really Republicans they are frightened little men and women that don't know what to do, and are too afraid to stand up for the Republican values that we know are still  there. but somewhat sleep.

Like I have said, there is a coalition, a coalition  of Republicans, Democrats, Independents, that will stand up and  together for the values of this country, and the values that all Americans have always had. Don't loose hope, they are three, and they will come up forth and stike out the evil that has engulf them at this time.

   The recent op-ed by Comey highlights how the GOP have been co-opted by donald.   When they have a guy who sucks up all the O2 in the room, they are then reminded that they didnot complain when he made the hateful remarks or object to any of his proposals.   

    He has put them in the position of agreeing or becoming refuse, such as he did to many GOP candidates in 16.    

     Of course the ignoble donald supporters here use the only tools they have left:   Distraction and Deflection.    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/01/opinion/william-barr-testimony.html

The Republican Party has managed to con their followers into mistrusting the FBI, all our intelligence services, the medical professtion and their own eyes. They gave up on decency  (grabbing lady parts is NOT decent) and logic (dribbledown economics is NOT logical).

 

Looks to me they are so bummed out from losing the Culture Wars that they will support any infantile nincompoop who promises to hurt the people they hate, and Cadet Bonespurs can play that tune all night long.

 

Fortunately they are a minority, and with just a little effort, the problem can be solved and we can get back to an America where every Generation does better than the one before and we stop ranking at the bottom of democracies in things like education, health care and standard of living. But it will require removal of Republicans from office so they cannot continue to redistribute all the income and wealth from the middle to the very top. One more ToadPOTUS, and the middle will have nothing worth redistributing and your kids will NEVER be able to retire.
