    Well, at least you didn't resort to stereotyping or using a biased source link. Perhaps you should ask Hillary how asserting that half of Trump supporters are deplorable worked out before boldly asserting that most are deplorable.

    No doubt your dad is a good person Governess. You are right to defend him.

    This is a war for the heart and soul and institutions of America pure and simple. It is the Trumpkins versus everybody else and where a person stands on which side of that line is how they are going to be judged by the other side. Those who stand with Trump will be judged accordingly.

    The fact that it caused criticism to be heaped upon her does not make her remark less true.

    I think these attributes exist with most conservatives as well.
    This is nothing but self-serving claptrap that the Trump hating useful idiots will love.

    Carry on then and demand that all demorat 2020 POTUS candidates make that point as often as possible. Telling the truth is absolutely the best way to win elections.

    That’s just not possible. Read the threads here or ask a few folks who’ve already posted on this thread. Your dad is secretly a klan member or Nazi who is burning crosses in the back yard while you’re away at school and is actively trying to restrict your rights. You best be barefoot and in the kitchen if you want his love.

    Ok sacracim off now

    Why does it take one of our opponents who is so young and unjaded by life to give such a thoughtful reply?


    She makes me almost embarrassed by half the stuff I say on here but being older and more cynical, my first instinct is to always punch back.

    See, I feel like this is huge problem. Everything is Us vs. Them. But why does it have to be? It's like I have to look at someone in a negative light because they happen to not hold the same political views that I do. It's just not a good mentality to have. I get that I don't agree with Trump supporters on most things. But it's one thing to disagree, and it's another to think that they are all vile people.
