DH and I are now, after the election, profoundly saddened and extremely worried for our country.

[quote=residinghere2007;46334282]I am similar to the red.

However, as a whole, it did make me see that a large percent of white Americans are indifferent to racism, sexism, and xenophobia.........

Which has been the case for like forever. Can't some people just fend for themselves? So many wrongs IN THE PAST have been corrected. Don't you realize by now that the guilt trips are getting old and do not wash anymore?

Maybe it's a great excuse for their failures in improving the future for themselves by harping on the past...........

And yet millions of us are extremely happy and optimistic that the changes Obama put in place will be reversed and America will get on a positive track.

I've noticed that many people who need and accept disability payments from the government are diehard conservatives. Funny how all of a sudden they think that program is a great idea!

Think before you make blanket statements.
Oh, I did think. I stand by my entire post. Do you assume that SS, or some alternate form of it, would not exist were it not for liberals? The original SS legislation was signed into law in 1935 with bipartisan support.

Obamacare has so many things wrong with it that you can hardly present it as a pillar of liberal achievement.

Think before you make blanket rebuttals.

There has been very little bipartisan support for any legislation for 8 years since the republicans decided not to support Obama on anything at all. President Obama requested many times that Congress send him a bill correcting the problems with Obamacare. They refused to give him even that measure of support, even though it would help the American people. ROOSEVELT, a Democrat, was president in 1935 and had great support among the populace. Pubs were less intransigent in those days.

Typica Repub, unwilling to give Democrats credit for anything!!

You people have been conned into thinking Trump cares about the little guy. You will quickly learn that he only cares about business and making money (for himself and his family).
