I did answer your question but didn't you answer you own question when you looked up the definition?
That said, our convo is boring and going no where. Got anything else to add?
You are so passive-aggressive, lol. First you start arguing with the guy who is just trying to get a better understanding of where you are coming
from, then you dismiss him basically.
As for trump being polarizing, I definitely think he is. I also don't think its a bad thing. Our country has been becoming more and more politically
fractured and polarized each passing year in the past decade. It isn't just the USA , either. We've seen the Arab Spring, and so many protests
happening all across the globe. These are times of drastic change, exponential growth, and confusing turmoil.
Trump says what a LOT of men and women think. He wants to restore our country to what it once was, not "change" it like Obama wanted to. He wants to
more our borders more secure, get rid of illegal and stop them from flooding in our country, prevent terrorism and attack it at its source, fix US
foreign policy, and restore American dominance in the world. Some of us want just that, and we wanted it long before Trump came on the scene. Others ,
the far left progressives, want a globalized economy, global government,fully regulated market, etc.
One of the major differences between republicans and democrats in my opinion is the difference between pragmatism and idealism. Someone like trump is
pragmatic. He is about looking at a problem, and solving it. Someone like Obama is an idealist. He has a vision in his head of a utopia, and so he
works towards building that utopia. The problem is, the world is the way it is for a REASON. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying things are the way
they are because its RIGHT, I'm saying it is the way it is for a REASON, and therefore you have to take that into consideration.
