The Common Sense "Party" are the ones that elected Donald Trump. They are the Americans that hang out in the middle but slightly closer to the right, but aren't afraid to buck the old guards (like John McCain) to get the job done!


LMAO, you can't claim to have common sense if you voted for Trump.

I am going to guess that Trump won due to a lot of people being PO'd at Clinton and the DEMS and what they did to Sanders. They voted in retaliation but, I am going to guess that those same people now regret that vote.

You will see, come next election, Trump is going to get his butt whooped. The troll vote will no longer be powerful enough to earn him a re-election.

All these stupid protests that are happening now all over the country are proof that there will be an overwhelming "no more Trump" vote.

Remember though, Democrats aren't a party of the left. They're a party of the center-right.

Which, to be honest, the politics of the center-right would probably serve and suit the American people a lot better.


I get this image of those who think that the Democrats are the party of the left as little kids who are so afraid of the changing world that the close themselves in to a cardboard box hidden in the back of a closet so that everyone else in the world becomes ''them out there''.

Good reminder for all people, Trump doesnt care about party or politics or government, just ratings.

Well from where I sit, people have no common sense, if they vote period.

Trump and Hilary happened because the people allowed it to get to that point.

Where was the outrage and marches demanding better choices?

People thinking choosing between 2 gangs is going to change anything.....it wont.

Trump is doing exactly as I predicted and expected, falling in line with the neocon Oligarchy MIC.

Look at the people in the oval office advising Trump. Bankers and Military...look familiar?


He drew back the OT legislation for salaried employees

But he's still "anti-establishment," lol

You are delusional. The Democrats have moved very far to the left to the point that embracing the far left loon groups is mainstream.

There's been open civil war in the DNC since the Primary season between the progressive Bernie-wing and the establishment corporatists.

They chose Tom Perez over Keith Ellison as chair, still support war and won't get behind single-payer. Actual progressives don't even support the DNC.

You're making stuff up.

Hopefully some better choices will emerge for the next election. If not, expect more of the same. For better or worse, I'm still super glad I'm not with her.

While many are quick to blame Congress for this, Trump has been a significant part of the problem. He does not advocate policy at a granular enough level of detail for anyone to know what he wants specifically, and his constant twitter distractions prevent Congress from being able to spend time garnering support from their constituents.



amen to that. when obama wanted legislation passed, he helped write it, he knew what was in it, he did research and he gave presentations. trump just whomps out a sentence, then another sentence that contradicts the first one, leaves other people to figure out how things can be implemented, and doesn't bother to learn the details. that's your real roadblock, imo.

Clearly he has no political allies - his support base is his family, those who voted for him and a few close friends - he can't be bought, he's not drawing a wage for holding the POTUS position - he's a game-changer and we should expect the unexpected.

This is why you voted for him and not ol' dodgy.





Orly?

So is THAT why he's selling memberships to the wealthy at his golf estates?



Dozens of lobbyists and government contractors are paying for memberships at President Trump's private golf clubs, providing them with close access to the president and the Trump Organization with millions of dollars in revenue.

In an investigation, USA Today found that 50 executives whose companies hold federal contracts and 21 lobbyists belong to the three clubs Trump has visited most often since becoming president. Two-thirds of them played on one of the 58 days the president has been in attendance since the beginning of his administration. The clubs include Mar-a-Lago in Florida, Trump National Golf Club-Bedminster in New Jersey and Trump National Golf Club in Virginia.

And let's not FORGET the Clinton's attended Trump's wedding...

This x1000. As much as I'd like to believe that the Trump victory was a fluke combination that lined up perfectly, I can't help but have the nagging suspicion that the Democratic leadership is going to double down again in 2020 with the same atrocious platform they tried this last election.

Eh... Compromise used to be the name of the game until the creation of partisan media in the 90's and public support forced the parties to the extremes.

Hardly. Sure there's SOME animosity. But "civil war"?

That's GOP/conservative wishful thinking. Not seeing it at the district-level DNC stuff.

The GOP is as bad as the Dems. Well maybe not as bad but both parties are full of bought and owned establishment pawns. Paul Ryan is a great example. The GOP has been bitching and moaning for years about health care and have failed across the board in replacing it. That was Ryan's main job.

The the Dems aren't interested in fixing it only compounds matters.

DC does not care about Americans. They care about the kick backs and back rubs they get from lobbyists and big business.

The most ridiculous part of it all is that it took crossing the aisle to begin with. I've never seen a party work so hard to tank their own presidency.
