    I disagree, it's clearly worse,.. the moderates are being pressured to declare for one extreme or the other, the lines have hardened, the contempt has grown, no one's seeking the middle ground, compromise is becoming a dirty word to both sides

    I disagree and think it’s the same, possibly better since we don’t see blacks routinely torching businesses, rioting.

    So @Kikicaca what fundamental liberal position have I taken? Dislike of Trump is a moral and ethical position not a political position.
    So @uscvball, @shane0911 @LSUpride123 et al what do you suggest to reverse the downward percentage of citizens who identify as conservatives? Why have we lost the popular vote the last 3 elections? Why did Reagan carry California twice yet we haven’t come close this century? Why don’t we get the percentage of the African American and Latino vote we should...I believe, no I know the conservative social fabric fits them better than the liberal democrat Godless socialist crap. Why are conservatives losing in the arena of public opinion?

    It seems to me too many have given up reaching out to like minded or those who could be like minded people who aren’t traditionally in our corner. We continue to look inward and have become defensive over the last few decades. This isn’t a winning strategy and if you want your children and grandchildren to have nearly the freedom we do we need to fight.....but fight smarter. We need to broaden our base to at least where it was under Reagan. We need to reach out to potential allies not reject them because they’re different or may not fall 100% inline. We need to cultivate organizations such as the Log Cabin Republicans conservative black, Latino and other race organizations. Let’s face it who wants to join a club where they’re not welcome?
    I believe that only by demanding the best of us to serve and demanding they serve with honor and distinction can we show we are worthy of being trusted with leadership.

    We must offer something better to the country not just “he’s not HRC”. I’ll say it again if you can’t hold your team to high standards then you have no place demanding that of others. Someone said in reply that whining and wringing of hands is useless......that we need to win now. I understand the point but if we blind ourselves to the future we will lose worse next time. We must build a stronger base one that becomes a majority not a bitter rump. It takes time and effort to do that and we’ve lost at least 20 years where no only are we losing vote but we’re rejecting those who may side with us more often. It’s a vital investment in the future...as vital as winning today if not more-so.

    Yes @uscvball and other Obama is at least divisive as Trump.....I’ve said that for 10 years. So what now? Obama ain’t running again. Yes the MSM is in the arms of the democrats and liberals lock stock and barrel. Yes schools and colleges have become increasingly liberal since Vietnam. Shouting that out in the dark does nothing to change those things. Taking your ball and going home does nothing to change these things. You want to lose the senate, the next presidential election, have the electoral college taken away? Keep it up with Trump and those who prop him up...the close minded my way or the highway attitudes. Just as happened in California over the last 30 or so years we’ll transform from a slightly conservative nation to a left wing socialist dictatorship.

    We can’t keep doing the same thing over and over while expecting a different result. That is the definition of insanity.

    The middle of the road is just a slow road to socialism voting democrat is just a super hyway to socialism. The left has gone not just insane but old school bat shit crazy insane. Killing babies in and even outside of the womb, want to take your money and give to people who don't feel like working, confiscate your guns, control what you drive or if you can drive at all, control what you eat, where and how big your house can be, control the thermostat in your house, whether you can even BBQ in your back yard (bat shit crazy), control your healthcare, confiscate your pesonal lands, eliminate cows (eliminate cows, really? is that bat shit insane or what), prevent us from using fossil fuels, tax your emissions (carbon tax) and basically have total daily power and control over your lives of course none of the control applies to them.

    So Trump likes pussy, a bit crude and curses but who didn't? JFK?, Lyndon Johnston? FDR? Bill Clinton? Obama? They all were a bit crude and all with the exception of Obama that we know of had extramarital affairs and liked pussy. Obama well he was just a terrible America hating racist asshole who wanted to "fundamentally transform America" of which I still ask; fundamentally transform America into what?.

    Conservativism is this countries only salvation and it doesn't mattter who pushes it whether his name be Trump, Reagan or even someone who calls themselves a democrat as long as they practice conservative priciples and abide by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Sorry the middle or the left is not a viable option these days if you want this country to remain great.

    Good grief @Winston1

    I didn't read that entire diatribe but i read enough to say this.

    There are multiple reasons, the 1st being we have gotten soft as cotton as a society. The liberal media has very craftily taken control of so many minds and infected their way of thinking. The ability for them to push the narrative (look at ALL the ways its delivered vs Cronkite back in the day)

    Somehow we have lost sight of God and right, and values and morals and instead have people trying to say its okay for trannies to use the little girls room.

    We have a President RIGHT NOW that is fighting his ass off on multiple fronts yet here YOU are being a pussy and crying because you just don't like him.

    If you think its bad now just wait until they do away with the electoral college. We won't stand a chance and believe me they are closer than you think.

    My advice is to quit your bitching, open your eyes and get behind this guy because he is the ONLY one trying to get us back.
