That might be correct.

I know it's very difficult for me to understand how anyone with basic intelligence, basic humanity, and basic integrity could support someone as mean, ignorant, untruthful, bullying, and bigoted as Trump, or even could support some of the heartlessly greedy goals of the GOP.

Im a moderate and know exactly who Trump is. Hes an egotist who seems to love pitting us against each other. And he knows nothing about the constitution. Your so called eco freaks and tree huggers want to save this planet for future generations. Why do you have a problem with that.

I think what you are trying to say is that SJW's are greedy.

MEH - not so sure that is an accurate depiction.

Often SJW's don't just fight for their own causes -- they often take on the causes of others. That's not a trait of being greedy.

Greedy implies that you would only be concerned with your own cause -- not someone else's.

There's nothing lamer than people who use "lamestream media".

Lol, US politics is a two headed snake. Both parties are full of all the bad that you listed. That you think one of them is not is no surprise.

But it's clear in your post, you are thinking with your emotions.

On C-D, I have never read a single post from a con or a Trumpist that gave any evidence that there was actual understanding of liberals. Far from it. It has always seemed that understanding liberals is not a goal; the fun part is just denegrating, labeling, and demonizing liberals. Its like a schoolyard bully; half the fun is calling out belittling names and getting away with it. It makes them feel more powerful.

Hmmmm. I've been called liberal/Democrat/etc. on this forum quite a few times, often for simply being critical of the current president.

I am not any of these, nor am I the only one this happens to on this board. I am not sure that the premise of the thread title can be anywhere near true when some of y'all can't even recognize who is liberal.

I support Trump a 100 percent and I am a Christian and I am able to forgive and overlook his petty character defects with ease. I don't judge the man. That's for God. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. There sure are lots of morally superior ( in there own delusional minds) knuckleheads that sure like to attack, condemn, and belittle the man. The more they do it...the more I lift him up.

Conservatives love to tell us how liberals think. But to they really have it right most of the time? No. Often who they're really characterizing are extremists, not liberals.
