I now consider Democrats to be the equivalent of the "other side" in a war - they will still oppose every and any thing your side does, they can lose a battle and still wage war, incessant and total non-compliance, they will fight to the last man, and any victory - even pyrrhic - is still a victory. Any means are justified in the pursuit of their ends.
Sounds like the last 8 years of Republicans. Fighting everything done, without trying to do anything constructive themselves.
I was thinking through the recent news (last night) that Trump got Carrier to keep 1000 jobs in the US, and how I couldn't see a way to frame that in a bad light.
You see nothing wrong with millions in corporate welfare while refusing to feed or educate children in need? I guess that's the issue. Why do you support corporate welfare, while opposing child welfare?
And no, I'm not a Democrat. So save that vilification for someone else.
More than 50% of the voting public stayed home.
That's what I said. Read the numbers. It rounds to: 50% voter turnout, 24%Hillary 23% Trump 3% other.
Also note, not voting for Hillary *or* Trump is an option without staying home. If Jill had gotten 10% of the vote, and Gary 15% of the vote, and 38% Hillary and 37% Donald, the discussion now would be vastly different. Even more so if the 3rd parties managed to get enough states to "block" an outright majority.
3rd party votes aren't wasted. Voting D or R is a wasted vote.
Trump said he'd pick from a list of SCOTUS candidates that he published well in advance,
Ah, so you are a fucking idiot. He hasn't even taken office, and he's broken nearly every promise made. Want to wager that his first nomination won't be from his list?
