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.

Now you can shoot them, just like Hillary did with the Deplorables argument in vain exercise of proving yourself right.

Your OP was based on some nonsense from some crank who is paid to churn out that nonsense for fodder like you. Nothing factual about it, just opinion & hearsay.

I feel bad for you son. November 2020 is going to be a very rude awakening for you.

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.
I'm with you.

Don't worry.. I doubt that Rumpie will win anything, ever again.

Is this it?

Is it their commitment to forcing their twisted take on "Love one another," on the everyone behind this?

I get the they think they are God's chosen people.

But how does a religion with parables like the Good Samaritan get twisted into hating on immigrants, Muslims, Mexicans, LBGT, etc.?

How does a religion with Commandments about not bearing false witness or committing adultery evolve into picking Trump as their hero?

Based on what?

-economy he inherited is stalling
-spending more than any other president/all-time high deficit
-circle of advisers being put in prison
-high turnover of the staff he selected for variety of scandals, incompetence, or gross disagreement with him.
-high vacancy of important director jobs throughout gov't
-rejects National Security briefs/advise and rejects that Russia was involved in influencing our election and will influence future elections.
-elevating N. Korean dictator murder to world leader
-doing nothing when journalists get dismembered by his personal friend/business associate in S. Arabia
-continually lying to the American public as documented by WaPo (over 10,000 lies documented)
-Trade war results in American taxpayer needed to subsidize/grant Farmers $12 billion as a short term bail
-Mex wall going nowhere
-Campaigned to eliminate 10 mil illegals in the country - nothing done there.
-Creates fake crisis with caravans
-Obstructed justice approx ten times by firing FBI director because he didn't promise to stop Flynn investigation.
-Daily tweets have brought the Office of Presidency down to an all-time low - it'll take years to clean up what he's doing.



The only thing he has going for him is the economy he inherited and economists think we're headed to a RECESSION.

Maybe.. maybe not but at the same time the president shouldn’t act like he’s at a frat party and he’s the only one there. He’s supposed to represent people of the United States yet he only represents those who voted for him, so they think he does. In the end he supposed to speak for all of us at this three-quarter of us.

A Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator who represents many evangelicals got three phone calls from constituents complaining about Trump’s profanity after a recent rally.

Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cellphone.

The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” Hardesty recounted.

The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat, said.

Here’s what he would have seen: Trump crowing, “They'll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor.”

Trump has always been good when it comes to putting his foot in his mouth. Things like this could be his start of downward spiraling.
Just get out and vote. There is no such thing as a lord. There is only Trump and there is only keeping our taxes low. If you're fanatical enough to believe in fairy tales, that is your problem, but you need to vote Republican no matter what to prevent the Dims from taking office and putting in place their socialist agenda.

Shame you missed out on Obama's massive tax cuts.

And recent surveys show a significant number of Americans have NOT felt Trumps cuts.

Corporations have ......through stock buy-backs and not new hiring or capital expenditures.

I didn't mention anything about Obama and Obama is not President now. The Democrat candidates are all calling for massive tax increases, so the choice is obvious.

99% of what? He sure wants to make America all white. That goes against all of humanity. America's native Americans may have a say in all of this.

Trumps' treatment of people is getting worse and older by the minute. He is nothing but an old loudmouth, run of the mill, rich wannabe playboy, con artist that just happened to have the presidency handed to him, like everything else in his life.

No wonder he is so cocky. When he falls off his wall, and crashes, like humpty dumpty, I hope you are ready to catch your weird idea of what a president and commander and chief, should be.
