But this is what you Leftists always do. That may be why one contributor to this forum goes by "do the twist." Twisting the words of conservatives to vilify them and smear their names.
No, it's just Trump supporters continue to show they lack common sense, common decency and reading comprehension, and continue to demonstrate their lack of historical intelligence, which has already been pointed out.

There are two categories Trump supporters fall under if they see no problem with this. And neither are good.

That makes it better? If we take what he said at face value, his opinion is that the country was better off, and that slavery - while regrettable - wasn't enough to change his overall favorable opinion.

But I don't think there's an actual opinion in there. It's just goobledygook talking point salad from an old fool who can't think on his feet.

It isn't booming. If it was booming interest rates would not still be at near record artificial lows.

Indeed but what made 1850-1860 better than 1950-1960? I asked this earlier and no one would make an attempt at answering.

I asked you to provide context and you wouldn't.

Context. What made 1850-1860 better than 1950-1960?

I am pro-life. I also support programs even beyond the ones we have to help those on the lower rungs.

Better access for further education. For child care. For better pay.

Agree it always seems to be a pragmatic starting point of inquiry to ask, 'Cui bono?' (literally "for whose benefit?")

Consider it pragmatic to also ask who were 'minorities' in the 50s? Hardly the statistical 'minority' both then & now.

The contextual clues, both then & now, are revealed when the de facto treatment of 'minorities' are not rationally considered but dismissed; it's ridiculous on a few different levels.

This not the 50s. No one needs to be punished for it, anymore.
Apparently they still fool LOTS of people, Many folks on here actually believe 'their people' do not engage in the same type of behavior, or that they care one bit about a adult having sexual relationships with an underage girl...they could not care less about this when it involves a seat in Govt power.


I think if we knew the whole extent of how much they truly do not care about the public, most of us would probably band together and remove them ALL from power by force.
