Have you talked to many of us? Asked us about this? 

How do you tell if someone is a lib?


You could ask us. And then you might ask us what we thought about a situation... and ask further questions about how we came to that stance and why we think it's better.

Or you could just post a picture or a video, y'know, and walk off with a "boom! mic drop!"

Barack Obama -- Under President Obama, the national debt grew the most dollar-wise. He added $7.917 trillion, a 68 percent increase, in seven years.


Yeah. Right. Now you guys are worried about spending and deficits.


I love how the article mentioned the first two examples by amount (in modern dollars) and then said the next ones (a lower amount of dollars) actually increased the national debt by a much greater percentage.

Either they need to measure everyone by percentage or by dollars... if they're mixing figures then they're trying to make a weak or nonexistent case look strong. That's Bad Math.

All Patriots please raise your hands.

Isn't being American supporting the Elected Leader? It used to be, long time ago when people didn't divide themselves but worked together. Now it's all bicker bicker blah blah blah.

No. That's never been what made people Americans.

Seems you can't get past this "Good Guy - Bad Guy" dichotomy you were taught by Saturday Morning Cartoons now can you?
Bit juvenile if you ask me.
The world is aaaactually a lot more complex than these absolutes you envision that keeps you feeling safe, or somehow successful in the make believe competition it inspires in your mind.

The notion Trump doesn’t embrace nationwide socialism as the path forward is a like a peck of hot peppers on the gut of a soft people who are used to being spoon-fed vanilla ice cream at every whimper.


But he got 2 scoops wth?

That is the result of socialism. No one will voluntarily give you healthcare out of their own time. It always has to be forced. Which is why socialism is a failure.

Never before in the history of this great nation has there ever been a more divisive president than Obama, the damage he inflicted on this country is immeasurable. He turned “the people” against the people, and that was exactly his plan all along. His entire presidency was one big social experiment to him, and it was a grand failure.


Literal fake news. If you think trump is less divisive, then you're literally wrong, or simply lying.

Fake news.

Oh liberals are losing! Pack your bags guys! The OP has confirmed you're losing. No more negative posts about this administration and Congress. Just go.

So you don't really have any counterpoint, any rejoinder, and in lieu of any substantive argument you'll just stomp your feet and yammer on about 'circle jerks', 'childish nonsense' and 'pointless posts'.
I'd say that's fairly typical for a response. Why am I not surprised?

You went trolling in the mudpit. And now your feelings are hurt? What did you expect?

Under Bill Clinton, the stock market and economy were booming. Is Forbes fake news yet? Are you singing Bill Clinton's praises, too? Didn't think so. I don't think the economy is as dependent on the prez as people like to think. (Bill Clinton was a charismatic crook.)

As for my millennial snowflake Bernie Sanders supporting self, I think Trump is hilarious. He reminds me of Michael Scott on the office. If you say laughing my ass off is losing, then I'm fine with being a losing lib.

And I would agree.


Bill Clinton was a charismatic crook.


Yes, he was indeed, but he didn't cause businesses to recoil from the marketplace in fear as Obama did. Oh, and I'll be the first to state right up front, Bush Jr. was an absolute tragic mistake too. And, as much as I would agree a sitting president's policies don't always equal the status of the economy, but the confidence level of business in a sitting president regarding their future has a tremendous influence. And this is what we're seeing with Trump. His policies haven't really had significant impact yet (there hasn't been time), but the confidence level of business was bolstered almost immediately upon Trump's election (or Clinton's defeat, depending on how you look at it).

My point in this thread has been, and continues to be, that the liberal left embraced a candidate like Clinton who is arguably more corrupt than her husband (and certainly orders of magnitude more evil). And when trump was elected all the left has done is cut off their nose to spite their faces in a desperate attempt to take Trump down...because he takes away all their excuses and their victim status. Clinton was the closest thing to Obama the liberal left could get, and when she lost they lost their minds over it. Sanders was never a contender with Clinton in the game (sorry, but he wasn't, Clinton was far too evil to allow that to become a reality), so when Clinton lost the whole left went to the extreme left side of the spectrum, which is what we're seeing.

In short; they're losing.

Simple fact is job creation in the US is less in Trump’s first year than it was in Obama’s last year. It’s a silly comparison anyway as much of the economic indicators for the two years after a change of presidency are due to the previous incumbent. So you can thank Obama for some time yet.
As for the nonsense of the stock market boom, that’s irrelevant. Given 90% of the sharemarket is held by the wealthiest 1% it means nothing for the average citizen.

I'm still waiting to see if you can post anything of substance to substantiate the claims you made in the OP.

Most of your questions were rhetorical, but there were a couple legitimate ones among the chaff. Honestly though, I've refrained from responding to your questions because every time I do you go down the exact same path of dissecting every post with 10,000 questions, never offering any substance of your own, just asking endless questions and attempting to drag any discussion down into distracted red herrings...and then making it about yourself.

Sorry.

Clearly the answer to unifying the American people is threads like these.

It goes deeper than this, Obama didn't just lack love for his country, he had contempt for America and actively sought to destroy it from within.

Now, to be fair, he didn't view it as "destroy", he viewed what he was doing as permanent "change" through contempt as a result of what he viewed as injustice. The methodology was a grand re-distribution of wealth away from the last unprotected class, the middle class. But from the outside it was clear what was happening, destabilization of America, and it was for this reason alone he was appreciated on the world stage. He played right into the arms of those countries wishing the downfall of America.

Obama's heart wasn't in strengthening the American republic, but rather changing it, irreversibly, into a socialist state. This demoralized business and confidence.

Trump stands in diametric opposition to this theme.




Yes, I agree.

However he was taught to undermine his country to raise his status and wealth.
Everything a patriot stands against.
We are about loyalty, tradition, and preserving our culture. Not changing the metric so we can make a few million dollars.

No, well, certainly not what made you an American, but you don't speak for the rest of Americans, and certainly not for me.

I have always been proud of the Commander in Chief, even including Obama...until he became such a corrosive douche-bag it was impossible.

Oh, and yes, I've had plenty of civics classes, political science and American history too.

Again, you'll just respond with 10,000 questions so I'm not sure why I'm even responding.
