That's an admirable way to go about it, but how unnerving is the fact, that there is but one party trying to chip away at our Constitution?

Common sense eventually wins out. Welcome home. Home is where the heart is. Sometimes, especially in our youth, we stray in order to explore, but our American spirit always calls us home.

Like the man I quote below, I was quite the liberal in my youth. I even worked on a Campaign for a Democratic candidate. Nixon was the evil Satan.
And sure, I know many people drift right as they acquire material possessions and, allegedly, up the ladder economically.

Except, things got worse after 9/11....George Bush was not what the country needed.

But, the real problem arose in 2008....transforming America indeed, and not for the better!!!! Socialism begins to rear its ugly head.



I thought George Bush was a Republican not a Democrat. You need to rethink your post.


I'm not seeing where it was implied he was a Democrat. That said, his "kinder gentler, win hearts and minds of our enemies" BS was certainly in-line with Democrat views on how to fight a war without winning the war. As far as I am concerned, GWB was a liberal Republican. Had he been a strong conservative Republican, we'd have come out of 911 with flying colors and wouldn't have hit the Great Recession... that crash happened because Bush started listening to the Democrat horsesnip that said "Oh, everyone should qualify for loans to own their own home..."

Hah!!!!
George Bush was really a neo-con!!!
Much like Hillary.

I never said I was a Republican! I am not.
More like a libertarian, anti-globalist who strives to be practical.

I listen to or watch all types of mainstream Media news all day.

What I have noticed is that the liberal media does not discuss the issues that Democrats talked about in the debates.

When discussing the Democrats all they talk about are poll numbers and who stands a good chance of winning Etc. It's never about any of the issues.

That silence speaks volumes.

How is a government with a "strong" leader, not a government with more control?

The right and the left aren't advocating for smaller government or less governmental control.

I think the Democrats are the greedy ones.
They take money from working women and men and use it to buy votes from the people that they keep under their feet.
They use their power and connections to line their pockets.
I think that is greedy.


And the billionaire President is just a man of the people?

Where do these very few who are very wealthy, get their money from?

Maybe stop watching MSM all day dude.
Those talking are not a representation of they claim to represent.

My hope is, one day, we will get a good, strong Libertarian candidate. And that people will feel ready to shun both Democrat and Republican parties.

Less government , more freedom.

All this silly bickering over stuff that doesn't really matter has got to stop and we need to bring this country together, instead of dividing it.

On a personal note, I voted Libertarian in the last election, but to be honest, to get a person in the White House who was not a politician at all was a blessing that needed to happen to shake things up.

I think our current President is doing an awesome job, in the long run.

Just my 2 cents.

It's interesting.

Find anyone who is disagreeing with me and they are, by default, anti-constitutional.

How about gutting the Endangered Species Act yesterday, and the dismantling of the EPA.. pure greed moves. Who cares what we leave to our kids. As long as oil and mining barons can squeeze more out an already decimated land.

Both parties have some form of greed as a defect.

It was a Republican government that signed in the anti-constitutional Homeland Security stuff and gave the NSA rights to spy on ALL citizens. I think it was even a Republican government who signed the espionage act in, to prevent freedom of the press.

15 constitutional amendments proposed in Republican convention platforms - National Costitution Center

You'd think, with their history, that they would stop making accusations.

Nah, he was a big fail there, and they aren't 'into' money like that anyway.

Have you ever noticed career politicians become multimillionaires overnight? How do they do that on a public servant's salary? Why is it that the scholar's historic rankings of US presidents are populated at the top with the US Presidents who had the most wealthy backgrounds prior to taking the oath of office?
Washington, Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, Kennedy, Madison, and Monroe were all ridiculously wealthy before inauguration and comprise 7 of the top 10 "most successful" presidents as ranked by most scholars on the issue. Eisenhower and Truman were career military and were not wealthy prior to taking office and Lincoln was never wealthy, having been assassinated prior to making that post-presidency grip. The fact remains, however, that our nation's best presidents have more often than not come from wealth, privilege, and good business backgrounds prior to entering politics.

I don't think to many people are totally democrat or republican.
It's more like we choose the most important topics in politics and see where that lands.
If pro choice is important you'll lean left.
If pro gun is important you'll lean right.

I voted for trump because I felt he would be better on the economy than Hillary.
That being said I don't like everything trump or the Republican Party does either but I like them more than the democrats.

I've felt similarly of both parties, but I'm totally on the same page with you.
