Do you want this? - Does Donald Trump and his solidly Conservative base represent you?
But neither am I in any great hurry to see a right wing super-majority in control, either.

I don't believe Republicans represent freedom of choice as closely as they'd have people think.

Not really - what it means today as far as the Republican party is is less government and more power to corporations,
the United States, Inc.
Ultimately leading to an autocracy of big business - That is what politcal conservative has come to mean.
Some say the Democrats also represent autoratic rule of the elite - But for the moment they siill kick some back
to the middle and lower classes.
The corporate autocracty will make a complete and total takeover
and you can kiss a government of 'We the People' goodby

He has definitely been better for the average citizen than the last few presidents - that is why wages are rising for the first time in 20 years, and unemployment is at a 50 year low.
Wages are always rising. The question is whether that rise outpaces the rise in cost of living. And the answer to that question is no. Cost of living rose 2.9% last year. Wages rose 2.7%.
Which means middle class income continues to stagnate. A trend that started under Reagan with his "Reaganomics" aka essentially the same economic model employed by the Trump administration.
Of course if you are alreay rich and don't give a damn about anyone else - this does not apply.

There is 7+ billion on the planet now... Does anyone on the left even know who or what Darfur is... It is all BS,
would consider these 'conservatives' who want to create the great wall of Mexico to be their kind of people?
We had a few wars with Mexico if I remember my history...did we say, OK let them have Texas...lol If we want to be the black hole for everyone on the planet that lives a crappy life should he not start a mass immigration program AROUND the world and not just give special consideration to those close?
No, you see the Constitution of the United States no longer belongs only to the United States
- The Constirution of the Unied States of America is a document that belongs to the Workd
ONE NATION - ONE WORLD - ONE SPECIES CALLED MAN - THAT WILL SOON TRAVEL OUT INTO SPACE
TO A VAST NEW WORLD
Globalist you say? - No, I'm a Universalist - This Planet is too small for me
How abou you - ready to get out of your conservative shell and see the vastness of it all

You never want 1 party complete control..ever. Democrat, Republican, or a new party. As much as some people here seem to enjoy the idea of a never ending Trump Dynasty where he has complete control of the Congress and Supreme Court, one party rule will never be good for you.
