pre Hitler Germany was considered to be the most "enlightened" and "cultured" country of it's time. I would have told people in 1932 what would happen 10 years later I would have been met with a similar naive comment to your "brilliance".

In fact many people said the same thing in mid 1944.

I wonder what New York will be like when it is only inhabited by blood sucking liberals? Maybe a lot like California?

Give him enough time? How much exactly because he'll be out of office in three years? Or are you one of those weirdos that thinks he'll stay in office after 2017? Like the idiots that thought Bush would.
Get a grip dude.

And are an extreme example of being the least open minded and non tolerant. Of anyone who thinks and has a opinion different from there own.

They can say what they want, but we all know they are full of it, in Italian we have a name for that!

It's already in the plan via Kurt Russell.

"Escape from New York". Once liberals are left, build up a wall and left them have the place...

I agree that using ludicrous equating of current American politicians or political groups to evil, murderous regimes or leaders is unhinged. So, just a gentle reminder .... American Taliban .... It's not always the cons.

About 1/4 of all pregnancies in the US are terminated.

I haven't heard a thing. Until I do...

Please build that wall and see how those conservative states that rely on the income from the economies of NY and CA survive.

You fail to understand the definition of tolerance. It doesn't mean you have to agree or even like what someone else thinks, but it DOES mean that you tolerate that people will have their own opinions no matter how much you may dislike them.

That is what you can't seem to understand.

I don't like racists one little bit, but I understand that they have their own opinions, and in this country, they are allowed to have those opinions. That part is what you seem to be missing.
