Wrong.

42% of Americans identify as Independent
30% of Americans identify as Democrats
26% of Americans identify as Republicans

I feel bad for you son. November 2020 is going to be a very rude awakening for you.
From the very first word in your reply is B.S all the way to the last word. The VERY. fact that I see things in a different light from you, doesn’t mean anyone hates this country the fact that you only see things from one side is what’s really sad. Trump is his own worst enemy and to make matters worse Trump is an embarrassment to this great country.

The majority of Conservatives on this forum don’t give a damn about this country, you voted with hate for the liberals nothing else it was pure hate. You choose to ignore Trumps childish behavior even when it’s caught on video.You choose to also ignore the that Trump doesn’t give a damn about the people who build this country and those who still do. You bring up Hillary/Obama every chance you get trying to deflect his actions.

Logic is NOT your friend. You TRULY believe that some spoiled rich, man child cares about you or me just goes to show how sadly naive you are. If Trump wins again in 2020 this country will suffer the fact that you singled me out, once again proves your all about party NOT country.

Isn't Reed correct though ?

Isn't it true that you see things pretty much as 'Us vs. Them' ?

Not to mention that it's a porn star whose looks he criticized by calling her 'Horseface'. Doesn't say much for his taste .

No. No it’s not. If you voted for him because you love this country you were fooled.

But they draw the line at using the Lord's name in vain?

Jesus take the wheel.
The first time it was a group of affluent Dallas area housewives interviewed in the home of one of the women.

The second time, a year...or two years later, it was another group of like minded women (I can't remember the location).

Both times this was on CNN, and both times some of the women mentioned that they think Trump was sent by God to be President .

Oh yes they should !! The Presidency of this country is not on the same level as being some small town committee member.........this position is who we hold up to the world as who we are as a nation. We expect this person to have honor, dignity, kindness, intelligence, and compassion. We told our children "Some day you could even grow up to be President of this great country !"

Even some of our less popular Presidents, over the years, have maintained a high level of professionalism and decorum. They were our rock and our PRESIDENT. When they met with other world leaders, we expected them to act mature, respectful, and sane.

But you and I agree on that one point you made, Donald Trump doesn't act very Presidential.

The more one goes back in time, the more the thought 'the public saw what we wanted them to see, not what was actually real' was the case. Think, historically, of how FDR's maladies were largely hidden from the public, and the same with some other Presidents before him. That would probably be impossible today. When you were 5, under 62% of American households had a phone. Domestic jet travel didn't start until you were 14. Things used to be much slower. There was less communication, less travel, and the internet and cell phones with cameras weren't serving to tie everything together. It was much easier to make public figures seem like people who should be looked up to. That's great that you had that feeling, and that you espoused that feeling to your kids, but that doesn't mean that those presidents deserved that reverence.

Of course. And of course that is something that the public can witness in a more transparent manner, but, in my book, that transparent point isn't enough to make someone a role model.

Probably has to do w/ the Supreme Court selections - they'd give up some of their values to ensure others are covered in court rulings (LGBT, Abortion, etc). The greater good sort of thing.
