I say let the left believe whatever they want to believe. They have very little power now, and will have none in 12 months.

The 24% of Democrats who identify as liberals, cannot be reasoned with. Ignore them.

You must have come over from a different reality to join us. The Left wants power, power to change anything anyone wants as long as it is change. They want a supreme leader running this country, the left is always putting people on a pedestal.

They had Hillary on a pedestal until they were overwhelmed with evidence she was corrupt, then they just say, she lost....get over it already.

Obama was also put up on a pedestal.

Remember all the little brain washed kids singing about obama?


That was one of the scariest things I've seen related to politics in my lifetime. It still has not played out until those kids are voting adults. That level of brainwashing is equivalent to what Mao did.


Yeah, I know. That was . . . WTH? Hopefully by the time they reach voting age most if not all have woke and do the walk away move.

I disagree. Republicans and right wingers want STRONG leadership. It's Trump's way or the highway. Compromising with Democrats is a sign of weakness. True or false?

If you think it's false give me one example where Trump has ever admitted he was wrong or has compromised on an issue.


Your characterization of Pres. Trump is not off, your perception and opinion of we that support him couldn't be more off. We don't idolize ANY man, at least most of us don't, but we will support someone who actually does what's good for our country. That is lost on people who support Liberals, they want the government to do everything for us which is NOT what our founders wanted when they formed our nation.

So as much as I know you'd like to believe what you say is factual and true, it's not. I really hope you look harder at the vast majority of conservatives and how we actually operate, because it's not how you perceive us. Not even close.

OP, you have to be careful of generalizing Trump supporters based on your interactions with them on ATS, where you'll likely encounter the extremist, the minority.

Another desperate attempt for attention from the OP, bless your miserable little heart. Please dont cry yourself off a cliff when reality kicks you in the ass. The construction industry is BOOMING thanks in part to policies put forward by your "Dear Leader" and my company is making more money and expanding faster than ever before. Even the illegals some of the sub-contractors have helping them out like the President of the United States, Mexicans, Hondurans, a few from Puerto Rico and as far as Brazil.

Dont respond I dont care, I have more respect for the dog turd stuck to the bottom of my work boot than your opinion.

Then you aren't listening very closely. A little intellectual honesty, and honest search, will find it.

I support him, to a degree, and I've criticized him on a number of occasions. Just because I don't like the man, doesn't mean I don't want him to do well, nor does it mean I'm blind to his failures/issues.

I'm not the only one, either. Try listening a bit closer.


You do know what you're asking, right? There might be a half-dozen or so people here like him who truly hate Trump and anyone that supports him. The OP was full of passive-aggressive statements and tone which happens a lot from a few. I might even be guilty of that at times but it's to keep from completely violating the terms here. Some people don't deserve being nice to.

First, you’ve never had your boots licked. You’d never deny anyone the opportunity to experience that if you had.

But fascism, really? Which companies are writing the bills to run the government like the insurance agencies did with ACA? Are there a whole bunch of wall building companies hammering that Southern Border Wall thing home right now? Is there a half-assed company named Dodgy Impeachment’s R Us clinging to cusp of bankruptcy whispering ideas to Trump for Schiff to capitalize upon?

The recently departed terrorist was General Qasem Soleimani, not Salami. Salami is a type of cured sausage consisting of fermented and air-dried meat, typically pork, which makes the joke doubly insulting to those that would be offended. You can call him pepperoni since he ended up as road pizza for all I care though. But wanted to give you a heads up anyway to be fair.

I would have been more blistering but time for dinner....priorities.

As I said, there is no leadership on the left. It's just chaos. This is why I find it so amusing when people on the right make criticisms of AOC or Nancy Pelosi as if the people on the left are like the people on the right. People on the left really do not care who is charge as long as policy decisions match the left wing agenda or represents it in some way.



As a non American Leftie, I find this to be mostly true. There is more chaos and infighting because of a broad spectrum of beliefs on the left, we fight each other as much as we do the right. This is a good thing in one way because it shows less of a herd mentality, but at the same time it is detrimental because we are never fully on the same page, and it can seem like a big mess to most people, and they aren't 100 percent wrong either.

Say what you want about conservatives, but they know how to get on the same page and live with some compromise for the sake of the ideology they believe in. I actually respect that even if I don't fully believe in it.

There is a major difference between the parties, at least the fervent party members, which sort of plays off a combination of what you're saying (correctly) about Obama worship and what the OP is trying to say about the "only the Right requires a god-like figurehead" (incorrectly).

It seems that the Left can't accept the idea that someone ideologically or on principle strongly disagrees with any of their mouthpieces. It seems impossible in their minds that someone despised Barack Obama because the man was trying to "fundamentally change" America into something many of us were opposed to... they can't accept that many Americans fundamentally disagree with socialism, are strongly opposed to the Eurocentric models of economics, social spending, and even military strategy, or even are simply unconvinced that the US should self-handcuff to combat "global warming." The idea that these are actual values many on the Right hold is so unthinkable to the fervent Left that they instead accredit all of them to various unsavory hatreds in an attempt to dismiss otherwise valid concerns and political positions.

It wasn't fathomable that voters rejected Obama's social spending model, so we're instead obviously "racists" who disagreed with Obama merely because he's black. It's impossible that we were opposed to Hillary Clinton's openly stated intentions to chip away at the Second Amendment Rights so we magically became "mysogynists." It isn't within their ability to comprehend why we oppose dramatic tax increases on middle and upper middle class Americans to fund handouts to huge swaths of the Democrat's voter base, so when we oppose Sanders we're "bigots" who hate the poor. Etc, etc, etc. In a similar vein, it is beyond their capacity to comprehend a world view or political model like Donald Trump prescribes to that runs so counter to their own that they have to apply false labels to anyone who supports him in those positions... we're "boot lickers" because their small mindedness is too narrow to stop and think "Well, maybe a lot of Americans actually agree with Donald J Trump's actual positions, hell, maybe, just maybe some Americans were calling for what Trump has brought to the table long before Trump even appeared on the political scene?"

There is a reason I view these people with the same degree of amusement I view someone else's tantruming brat of a child with... it's because they are acting like petulant children. 20 years ago I thought the childishness had peaked when there was a tiny percentage of the country throwing an 8 year tantrum over their chosen one fairly losing the presidential election... The minority of "Bush is illegitimate/stole the election/etc" voices made me shake my head, but I incorrectly assumed it wasn't indicative of a trend towards a measurable number of Americans so childish and (may as well say it) stupid that the legitimate, legal outcome of an election was beyond their ability to maturely grasp and accept. Had someone told me 20 years ago "Yeah, this is just the beginning, soon we'll see a much larger percentage of American asshats who jam their head in the clouds and voiciferously refuse to accept the outcome of a national election they lost, throwing little baby tantrums incessantly until they get their way" I'd have laughed and told that person to GTFO. Unfortunately, it would appear that 20 years ago I had much too high an opinion of my adversaries.

Compromising with Democrats that have swung so far left that Communism is inevitable if they get their way? Nope.

He was willing to compromise on DACA. But because of TDS, the Dems refused to help the DACA kids.

As I am an internet expert on verbal "burns", I am qualified to rate the "burn".

We use the Kevin Scale to measure "burns".

A 1 on the Keven scale is actually classified as a pity-burn and you end up feeling sorry for the person delivering the burn because you didn't realize that the person was retarded.

A 100 on the Kevin scale means that the burn was so successful, you actually have to never go online again and you probably have to move. To Guam.

I have measured the "burn" and would give it a 0.5.

So you are safe.

The author of the "burn"?

Probably made potty in his pants while typing and is now sad.

Democrats want a mother and father figure... an all-powerful government to take care of them.


When you expect the government to provide for your basic needs, you are making yourself dependent and a servant to the government.

I remember my grandfather saying that he would rather starve to death before he would rely on the government to feed him. I grew up in a time when you were taught to distrust the government.

Likely your top lip.



Ooooooh.


Is this the part where "yo mama" jokes start to fly?

I'll take your quip as a yes to my question.

Is that what you're doing?

Weird, I thought you were simply trying to evade the original response. Different perspectives I suppose...

Leftist babble. Chin up and adjust those thick rimmed black glasses... maybe your preferred party will win next time and you can sit on the other side of the fence. It's all the same anyways.
