    Are you talking about tax cuts? Letting people keep more of their own money isn't redistributing wealth among the wealthy.

    How exactly are Republicans redistributing the wealth in any kind of form?
    That question about how Republicans redistribute wealth is the question that I responded to

    Now dude and tweety seem to be implying that I left Obama out of my remarks?

    This is getting ridiculous.

    Quote from No Stars In My Eyes
    Oh, well, I knew some would guess the party, but I didn't want to start up a verbal tug-of-war.

    To me, it doesn't matter which party. It was just an example of self-righteous idiocy.

    I don't want to play this game any more if it's going to blow up into smack-talking politics.

    It's not a situation of "I'm right, you're wrong." That is an endless argument like the snake eating it's own tail.

    I mean, you KNOW nobody is going to say, "You're right, I'm wrong."

    ALL human beings are capable and willing to justify their stupid behaviors.

    I was simply throwing up my hands and rolling my eyes in exasperation.
    I know.
    We aren't supposed to talk about the normal political strategies of that party because it makes people who support the politics of that party uncomfortable. We are supposed to pretend that they don't say and do the things that they say and do.

    Just for the record, I know that I have admitted to being wrong when confronted with evidence of my wrong thinking. Most of us likely have. Only malignant narcissism, as demonstrated by Trump, lacks that capacity or willingness.

    Well, let's see...
    America's middle class lost a significant portion of their assets and wealth following irresponsible republican oversight during the Bush administration. The working class has enjoyed almost no meaningful increase in pay or benefits while the oligarchs have watched executive and board room compensation sky rocket. All because that is the policy that congressional and regional conservatives promote. Can't you see that working people are really building wealth and financial security in Republican led states like Kansas and Michigan?

    Not to worry. Unless he is elected President, he won't have the power to do any of those things.
    We've already demonstrated that people will elect a morally, intellectually, and ethically unfit man to the presidency with the current Republican president. We are not safe from future idiocy at the hands of those with lazy intellects and fondness for salacious celebrity.

    I know you said that political affiliation isn't the point -- but, still, I knew even before I Googled this what the party affiliations of the two candidates were going to turn out to be ... Why am I not surprised??
    You are not surprised because the depravity of the political play book of that party has been publicly expanding over the past 10 years.
    Blindingly obvious.

    Yes, it matters. However, politicians have and always will lie. Our political process usually doesn't lead to the best people qualified being the ones who end up in congress or the WH. It's up to us to decide what is true and not true about political figures, and weigh that against what issues are important to us. Not a great spot for us to be in.

    I dislike a lot about how he handles his business. At the same time, I'm very pleased with the results and for now I can live with the bad that comes with the good.

    Have you ever overlooked a political leader's bad behavior because you were onboard with what he/she was trying to do, or were pleased with what they accomplished?
    Funny, I thought that Trump was attractive to conservatives because he was not a politician. Yet, now that it is so obvious that the fellow is the lyingest man elected to the presidency his followers seem anxious to explain away his dishonesty as typical for the profession.

    It would appear that Republicans were unable to decide what was and wasn't true about Trump before they elevated him beyond his abilities. No vetting. No tax returns. No experience. No evidence of morals or ethical limits.

    I wonder when the economy made the turn from troubling to hopeful, in your estimation. What does the economic trend look like over the past several years, or the employment rates over the recent past. Would a graph demonstrate a substantial change in trends or patterns that coincides with Trump's policy implementation?

    It's incredibly clear that many conservatives are more than willing to overlook reprehensible behavior, unamerican affections for despots, pathologic inability to be truthful, and disregard for laws if they are convinced that they are somehow winning or liberals are losing.

    By the way, there are now around 12,000 children in long term detention facilities.

    When did conservative American ideology come to include overt cruelty?

    You misinterpreted my post badly if you think I was saying I was a victim.
    Apparently, your posts aren't making the points that you want or intend to make. Maybe you should explain that away by pointing to someone else also making a pointless post. Unless you suddenly have an aversion to deflection.
