When these things go off topic it becomes tough to follow.  I still pray we get Trump out before he can wreck the economy though.

Hardly. But times were different.

 

How much different?

 


The recession was quite deep, we had Hoovervilles, we had no safety nets.

 

 


 


Yes, the Bush recession was bad. I just hope we don't see a Trump recession.

Colors are showing. The Republican Party and it's Presidential candidate ran on dumping socialized medicine. The Republicans were all for it when it was subject to Obama's veto - then they whoosed out. Those anti- do not believe it's better for the citizens nor the desires of their constituents.

 

So - "colors" - there are only two, pro-socialized medicine and anti-socialized medicine


 

republican/conservative political myopia, along with RWNJ delusional belief systems, are responsible for many completely erroneous assumptions involving an entirely fallacious necessity for choosing either the extreme crackpot fringe right - or the rational, logical, and lucid left...

 

It all depends upon whether one is a frothing-at-the-mouth RWNJ, or a logical, rational, and lucid progressive...

 


Lucid and Progressive are antonyms.


conservative and rational are antonyms.

So are honorable and republican.


Does that mean you think that the Dems will move more towards the middle for the 2018 elections?

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”


― Theodore Roosevelt

The Democratic Party will move to the middle when the Republican Party starts telling the truth. In other words, don't hold your breath.
