Get educated, stop with the sycophantic adulation, be realistically smart.
Then why was it harder for Obama?

You're talking to someone who's in their last year of High school buddy

And for your information I technically have taken 5 US history classes, even if my memory is blurred a bit I still have some decent memory

If the party switch was real, how do you explain most riots happening in liberal cities at that time? I'll wait

And wth is a sonny boy? Lol

Now let me alone and enjoy my sleep


But please keep the Kool Aid

Riots and protests happened in every corner of this country. If you mean to say why did they happen in large cities, it is simply because of the ability to organize in large numbers.

I have no idea why we debate the idea of party switchers, you can google them and see who has switched parties. there are like 12 current Republicans senators who were once Democrats, a couple of governors too. Mind you, this switch happened 20/30 years ago, so many have long since retired, so go back one governing generation and the numbers are even higher.

I get where you're coming from, but even modern day most riots still tend to happen in blue cities and states



Only major ones that happened in somewhere red where probably the Cleveland riots of 2001 and the St Louis riots of 2011

However, doesn't bigger goverment lead to more clueless police state enforcing since bigger goverment means that the police can follow orders just from not confiscating a proper warrant?


And also, doesn't bigger goverment always lead to more improperly trained police at all costs???

^^That is correct, Trump is riding the coat tails of Obama's great economy from Bushes failures. And Trump is also adding trillions to the deficit lowering the value of the dollar.

Jesus Christ, you guys really want to take Obama so bad when one of his tax cuts even backfired


Let Trump do his job, his intentions I am sure are going to speak louder in 2020 and by the end of 2024

Also, we did not see unemployment drop to the historically low rates until Trump. Obama even liked $4/gallon gasoline during his term. Plus, don't forget. You didn't build that.

Worst recovery ever even with two Trillion dollar stimuli and zero interest rates. Embarrassing.

Democrats have nothing on racism against Trump and continually throw the word at him to try and make it stick. That is what democrats do. It also plays on the emotions of the low information voters who feed votes to the democrats.

Again, numbers matter. If you are say, black and live in a small town, you arent going to start trouble, especially when the police can do what ever they want to you and there is no one around to back up your claim.

As for your questions, no, bigger government doesnt lead to either of the things you listed. Bad government does, and bad government comes in every form, big or small, red or blue.
