It's not just the anti-abortion, anti-contraception, anti-women's rights, nasty talk about women business, it's the treatment of children at the border. Many conservative women are appalled. Regardless of all the hate-filled rhetoric, these are children. Many women, conservative or not, have a soft spot for children. Go figure.

Health insurance is another issue that is dear to a lot of women. Ask how many older white women want to do away with that socialist Medicare program. Or want to face a future where anyone with pre-existing condition can't get insurance.

How long until white women get enough of all the lies, all the fear mongering?

What a load of BS. Them children at the border are doing just fine given the circumstances. They are likely eating better then the 16 million children that go hungry in America everyday. But you liberals don't give a s**t about Americas hungry children. Only about the children of illegal aliens. You liberals and your horse s**t crocodile tears living in your lily white neighborhoods.

It's why McConnell is blocking legislation for fair elections.

What should be our main concern, is if the Republican dinosaurs will pull all of us and the whole country down with them, in their final days. What atrocities will a lame-duck president and senate carry out against us, after defeat in the 2020 election, during the months of November, December and January? Thankfully, they lost the House, because if they still held that, they'd lay waste to everything, rather than to turn it over to the Democrats.

it boggles the mind, how many current republican members of congress will be charged and imprisoned for their crimes in selling out our country, after democrats are running the whole show. In 2020, many of them will be running not so much for political power, but to extend their personal freedom. I can imagine many of them fleeing for safe havens, along with Trump and his cabinet members, that have no extradition treaties with our country. I don't think we should try to stop them. Let them go and good riddance. No need to pay for their room and board.

Really? What are they full of, then...?

If you don't have the guts to call a racist a racist, you are one.

Indeed.

It would be comforting to think that such vile BS is posted by Russian trolls aimed at tearing our nation apart.

Alas, I live in North Carolina. I've met folks like this.

The numbers simply do not lie. America, as a whole, and swing states, in particular, are growing more diverse, more quickly. There is no way Republicans can change birth rates or curb this trend — and there’s not a single demographic megatrend that favors Republicans.”

“President Trump’s short-term calculation to stir up white voters with race-baiting rhetoric might very well echo for a generation.”

Key takeaway: “Next year, the entire under-18 population will be majority non-white… In less than a decade, the under-30 population will be majority non-white.”

Like the old Fram oil filter commercials proclaimed:

“Pay me now or pay me later.”

Nobody is stopping you from paying the IRS extra or donating XXX amount of your income to whatever cause. None of us are stopping you from sponsoring an illegal family, either. Just use your own house and resources.
You are so angry that you are taking things the wrong way. I never said Republicans are selfish. I said people who care about the country...are not just voting for their own selfish selves. That works for both parties, so relax. It is not what I said.

In your second paragraph, same thing. We do not want illegals here. You need to slow down and think. Very few on either side are in favor of illegals streaming in and straining our resources. We want strong borders. We want e-verify. But I am not hollering at you or accusing Republicans so take it easy.

It's morphed into something nasty. I'm not sure it's really Republican anymore. They were bad enough, but not this malevolent.
