So I wonder what America''s fate will be....
Dictatorship or civil war ? Watching the circus unfold from afar looks like the only available options

Incidentally just a couple of days ago I saw a documentary on TV about them. I know it's nothing like this now, but as I said, from afar it looks like things could get worse judging by the seemingly evergrowing gap between the 2 camps.
It seems USA is lacking diversity, everything just black or white

So it's also "anti-American" for a member of Congress to heckle a President during a speech, right?
Or to cheer when an American city loses an Olympic bid?
Or when a sitting President attacks actual veterans and Gold Star families then tries to ban transgender American troops from being able to serve in the military?
Isn't it also "anti-American" to wave the flag of a hostile nation that rebelled then waged a war against the US that killed hundreds of thousands of Americans? Or to march at "Unite the Right" rallies with literal Neo-Nazis who are carrying on the mantle of the same Nazi Party that killed tens of thousands of Americans? Or to constantly attack the free press even though its freedom is literally included in the 1st Amendment to our Constitution? Or to refuse to allow a vote on an American children's healthcare bill for at least 4 months just so your party could use it as a bargaining chip in a budget showdown?
This false "patriotic" talk means nothing because your side doesn't even want Americans to have low cost but high quality healthcare; doesn't want poor Americans to get govt assistance that help them get back on their feet; doesn't want all Americans to have equal rights & opportunities; doesn't want all Americans to be able to vote; doesn't want Americans to have non-polluted air, water, and land; etc etc etc. Always harping about protecting our borders but don't give a crap about the citizens living within those borders or the conditions they're living in. What kind of "patriotism" is that?[/quote
Funny, when my healthy young liberal peers were offered the chance to switch from 1099 to w2, and declined because they'd rather pay the penalty than pay for insurance I thought it was them who didn't want people to have affordable health care. Nope, just must be some guy who took away that penalty so now theyll surely pay into the flawed system because they truly care so much about their peers.
The thing I hate most about liberals is their constant "do as I say, not as I do" approach. Or should I talk about my liberal musician friends who demand fair wages, but don't pay their musicians more if they get paid more. Or maybe Damn near every liberal I've ever met who cries about how not enough of my money is being spent on whatever flavor of the week issue they're buying bumper stickers for, while they refuse to volunteer for anything.
I used to be completely untethered to either political mindset, now nothing infuriates more than listening to a liberal talk. The DNC is so pathetic you couldn't beat Trump. Hell, you barely beat an accused pedophile lol. I promise, no one is listening to you.

Yes it is sad for republicans. If Americans don’t follow the Republican group think, they are not Americans. Got it.
