*Claps* bravo, you'll chastise use, namely the right by starting your post off with general left terms. I didn't see any vindication or examples of right terms. I didn't see my favorite one up there, "deplorables", now why is that? I can tell you why, you lean left.
Influences are funny because you don't know that you're doing it till somebody takes a critical approach to your post.
A neutral position would have considered all of these things, don't be so foolishly naive thinking your advocating some worthy clause, you're wallowing in mud as we speak. Speaking up, why the mudpit? unless you anticipated your errors?
No Star No Flag.

Liberal does not mean liberal nowadays.

I'm really having a hard time supporting your position OP, when you use name calling in your call out to stop name calling. Seems a little counter intuitve to me...

When I use the liberal label on someone it is always because that person is supporting one of the usual liberal causes, agendas, or they are parroting the liberal media's propaganda messages. I am very glad Trump is there and causing the shakeup because that is only thing that can lead to reform in government since mutual understanding seems to be almost out the window between parties. The democrat party is being called out as completely phony and they are indeed that.
I do not support every single thing Trump is doing, but also should say that what he is doing is not always what is being reported that he is doing. So far about 85% of what he is doing is being represented as different or deceptive to what he is actually doing and the left and others are falling for that and attacking him and then being lumped in as liberals.
It is a circus.

Just a quick one, as I need to put this to bed. I've lost count of the amount of times I've seen on here, and on social media, where Trump's cultists say "LOL TYPICAL LIBERAL" (along with some cringeworthy overused 4chan meme) to anyone making a comment not supportive of Trump.
So let's clarify this for you.
I am not pro Trump.
I am also not a Liberal.
I have some liberal opinions, and some conservative opinions. There are simply too many issues at stake to land firmly on either side of the fence for me (hence the name). Many others are in the same boat.
So stop being lazy. Just because someone questions the POTUS (as anyone with any sense would do; you should always question leadership and hold them accountable, regardless of country/political leaning) it does not make them a liberal, a libtard, a leftard, a shill, pro-Hillary, pro-Obama, a socialist, a communist, an SJW, a cuck, triggered, a snowflake, a traitor, unpatriotic, a globalist, pro-Soros, or any of your other clichés. It's lazy. Stop being lazy.
Ok, let's get back to the politics.
