You have to admit there is a problem first.
So I'm admitting there is a problem. Just being "nice" doesn't seem to be working very well. (again, the mods have an impossible job)
The "victory" has been a bitter one because the other "side' hasn't yet surrendered. And I doubt they ever will.
So where does that leave us?
I suppose I could be the "bigger man" and admit that Trump is Hitler and his followers deplorable just to appease those on the opposing side. But
then I wouldn't be the same poster I am now. I'd be a liar.
I can't expect others to admit that Hillary is Hitler either. that would mean they too, would be capitulating on their beliefs.
