Now newspeople you disagree with are nazis, Kluxers, and White Supremacists. 

 

Further and further out there on the radical fringe.

After each election, there is a call to put the election behind us, and unite as one. trump said it, but it must have been a line in his prewritten script, for he is a monumental divider.

 

Put the election behind?  This fool continues to live in the past and leads his ridiculous base there as well, as he bemoans Mrs. Clinton and just how terrible those in law enforcement are because they KNOW he is the criminal rather than she and are working toward proving it to all.

 

Further, he has divided people,  not only politically, but by gender, race, and religion.  

 

There will be no unity until trump has been removed—no longer able to disgrace this country or drive further division between her people.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!


Had Hillary graciously retired from the scene after her defeat she probably would have been let be. However, she actively joined the "Resistance". 

 

As to the "removal" of President Trump - there will be another Presidential election in 2022. Patience - smell the coffee - enjoy the sunshine - smile.

I saw this post which I considered to be foolish:

Does the poster think that before the elections are over we should not unite as Americans?

What does the poster thinks the phrase  "unite as Americans means"?

 

It is a mystery to me.

 Making "I am an American" more important than "I am a Republican" or "I am a Democrat" - and certainly more important than "missing the ex-President" or concerns about who the President's wife wakes up with each day might be a good start.

 



wrong.

 

 Would you care to expand on your theory?

NH—How very odd is it that CNN always has commentators from the conservative and/or right wing party on to give their opinions and thoughts. Sounds pretty darn fair and balanced to me.  but then again, I’m sure that those who say that MSNBC and CNN are not fair and balanced have never really watched it. 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!


Could be true of CNN or FOX!

I will go first. I want every resident of the United States to have affordable healthcare to be in the top five developed nations using metrics of  life expectancies, infant mortality, and costs. 

 

Can we come together on that as a goal? 


I'll agree on the goal but not necessarily on the implementation. Great GOAL!

Funny how that works.  If you ask any Conservative, they would tell you the same story about CNN and MSNBC - hate TV (not at all "fair and balanced").

I think we are beyond hope of uniting if we can't even agree to accept science. 


The vast majoity of Americans CAN accept Science, and most of the rest would if we restored the Fairness Doctrine and stopped confusing "Free Speech" with "A License to Lie."

 

We The People OWN the electromagnetic spectrum. We only "rent" it to Corporations in order for them to use it for the betterment of the United States. Republicans have used this to destroy Democracy with their Propaganda ministry led by Fox and supported by Hate Radio. The coursts have supported Fox's "right to lie and call it news" BECAUSE there's no law saying lying on the EMS is illegal, even if you say its news.

 

If we re-instated the Fariness Doctrine which simply said if you say something derogatory about a person on your broadcast media, you must allow the person equal time to rebut your statements. That would reduce Fox's time to lie by 50% and PERHAPS they'd realize it wasn't getting them any new converts, only constantly enraging the old ones, and that was not a viable business model for a profit making operation.

 

Not certain it would work, but I am certain allowing nazis, KKK and White Supremacists like those anchoring Fox programs to lie without any restrictions is destroying America.
