  1. Im not sure why you continue to quote my posts, when I never respond to any of them? If I havent made myself clear in the past, youre the most terribly unfunny poster weve had since probably Phurfur. Like pretty much everyone else here, I have zero interest in having any sort of dialogue with you. Please take this into consideration next time you want to engage in conversation with me, as this will be the last time I respond to anything you post. It has nothing to do with politics or anything. Youre just a really really bad poster. Quite possibly the worst ever. And let me tell you, weve had some really bad and unfunny posters come through here over the years. HTH.

  2. What do those who deal with the border and illegal immigrants think ? They know more than any one of us or any Congress member.

    How do they feel about the wall ?

    They are the only opinion that has any validity and that matters.

     

    Anyone know their professional, educated, in the thick of the mess opinion on the matter?

    This post brought to you by the guys who dont believe scientists know anything about global warming.

  3. I edited my post with a link.

    Some opinion piece written by some nobody. Great link.

     

    ETA: The fact still remains that it all came down to a lack of technology. People had no way of knowing who was better qualified between Jim Bob the farmer from Virginia and John the banker from New York. We have this thing called technology now, so information is readily available to anyone. It has ZERO to do with crappy states being given a voice, as stated by several in this thread. California wasnt even a state until almost a century after the federalist papers were written. Someone should tell the moron who wrote your opinion piece.


  4. That is not why the founding fathers made the elector college. At the time our country was founded we had a group of people who believed in Congress electing the president and another group who believed in popular vote, as Congress picking the pres was too similar to what the brits did. Since we had no technology to quickly count votes across the entire electorate, they settled on the elector college. Thats why congressional leaders can still go against the popular vote of any given state. It has nothing to do with the piss poor useless states in middle America. Youre welcome for the history lesson. HTH.

    Not sure what you saw over the last 2 years.

     

    I saw a traitorous ###### keep the American people from getting affordable healthcare (fortunately karma gave him what he deserved in the end).

     

    I saw a duo of impotent cucks (Corker, Flake) attempt to block Trump every step of the way.

     

    I saw the House and Senate fail to pass a budget, or fund the wall, which was a mandate from the American people when Trump was elected.

     

    I saw a gaggle of bought and paid for scumbags do nothing for the president or their constituents, only make decisions for their lobbyists and puppet masters.

     

     

    Now that Shitstain No Name is dead and gone, Flake and Corker were forced to resign, and the Senate was solidified with a bigger margin (minus Flake 2.0 in Romney) I expect the table will be set for Trump to do whatever the ###### he wants for the next 6 years.

     

    2018-2020: appoint judges, continue to improve the economy for all Americans (including browns, womens, and poors), continue to dominate on the foreign policy front (and usher in even more non-globalist/pedophile leaders as we have seen in Italy, Brazil, etc), let the Dems continue to humiliate themselves with a fabricated Russia investigation and push to full on communism, continue to expose DC and the MSM for the traitors they are.

     

    2020-2024: R's win back the House, expand lead in the Senate, Trump is re-elected.... and we exterminate the filth that have taken over this country like a metastatic tumor.

     

    The Dems controlling the House offers them no advantage. Only mentally ill people want 2 years of muh Russia and muh Hitler. The average American doesn't give a ###### about anything coming out the Dems or CNNs mouth.

    Giving up so soon? :sadbanana:

     

    This was one of the more rambling, less coherent posts youve ever made. Dont go all wiffleball on us buddy.


  6. I can only hope that Trump's patriotic chess game is more powerful the Lefts moronic global agenda.

    Why cant you have both? Why isnt it possible to put America first, but not be so naive to the fact that we have a global economy and the stability of the world also makes America stronger? I think people confuse patriotism with nationalism.

    Good Post.

     

    Although, I'm not sure what "standing up to Trump" actually means? Are the Republicans suddenly going to pass Democrat policies to "stand up" against him? I'm not sure what you're expecting them to do. Trump is Trump and he'll continue to be the same - he ain't changing for anyone.

     

    So maybe GOP and DNC work together and somehow entice Trump with sugar instead of spite and venom.

     

    Thoughts?

     

    Yah, I'm not sure what the answer is. Obviously this has nothing to do with 5.6B, as that's a drop in the bucket, compared to what they waste on any given week. It seems to be a battle of ideologies and appealing to their bases. Trump wants to fulfill a campaign promise to the people who voted for him, and give him some ammo for 2020. Democrats believe the majority of Americans do not want a wall. The problem is both sides are using working class folk as political pawns. People barely scraping by are having their livelihood put in jeopardy by a bunch of bickering old rich people.

     

    As for standing up to Trump, it's not that I want them to pass democrat policies. It's more of a standing up for the principles of the party. I do concede that the people who have done that have been fed to the wolves though. I just don't believe Trump reflects the true ideology of the party.

     

    At the root, my problem with Trump is Trump is all about Trump. I don't think he values the opinions of his advisers, and wants to surround himself with a bunch of yes men. That's not really the way a democracy is designed to function properly. Like everyone else, I just want the best for our country and a government that works on behalf of us all. :dunno:


  8. TBH, I'd rather have more of Pelosi & Co than the far-left progressives (Ocasio-cortez, sanders, etc...) that are trying to take over the party. That's dangerous for America and the Democratic Party is under threat of becoming a far-left party if they let more of these socialists/marxists in.

    :thumbsup:

     

    More of the same, is better than the far left. However, in the end, the only thing that really matters is checks and balances on the twittard in chief. If the republican congress proved anything over the last two years, it's that they lack the testicular fortitude to stand up to Trump. I personally think a split between the legislature is good regardless of who is president. Elected officials should compromise and work on behalf of all people.
