The fact is, the GOP has been broken for decades. One can argue it started with Nixon, but I would surmise it really started with Reagan. Only when this party has been fully exposed for what it is, and what it represents, can the process of building something entirely new begin.

Republican Party operatives and elected officials have done well to conceal what the party has become, and now Trump has come along and is willing to not only pull the curtain back, but tear it off the rod and throw it into the fire pit.

In the end, perhaps what rises from the ashes will be more agreeable to the rest of the country than the nationalistic, xenophobic, and bigoted collection of anti-intellectualists and corporate shills it is today.

Is that why Obama continues to occupy the Middle East and has murdered thousands of innocent people in Pakistan and Yemen with his drones? To promote peace and make America great?
The truth and the facts don't mean much to some. Just make stuff up and falsely accuse. The dems are morally bankrupt.

answer - Because Obama is a lying war monger.

Speaking of dumb why doesn't your chosen one bring the troops home? After all that is one of his jobs, to control troop movements.
The facts mean little to the ignorant ones.

Meh. The libturds are getting desperate. They don't even have any facts, just shrill screaming of the SKY IS GONNA FALL.
America is going to become great again!
Your 20 million illegal voters are going home one way or another!
Our border will finally be secured!
Hitlary will be going to Club FED and maybe even her pedophile, rapist husband too.

This is what I'm talking about. In 2016 less than 10,000 Americans are deployed.

And you've totally lost it! It's not the voters who aren't rational - it's a handful of posters here that have gone bonkers starting with the day that Trump declared his candidacy and proceeded to steamroll the competition many of which were career politicians. The voters aren't ignorant - they just finally grew some!
