  1. I was describing our POTUS, so yes.
  2. Why would anyone who doesn't fit Trump's very narrow definition of who he cares about support him? If you are: Black Female Non-Christian LBGTQ Middle class or lower economically Have any health problems Liberal If you are any of the above, Trump doesn't care about you. He only cares about: White Male Christian Straight Wealthy Healthy Conservatives Who kiss his ### 20% of households make over $100,000 per year, so right there we have 80% that shouldn't support Trump. Add in gender, and you're up to 90% non-support. Of the 10% left, how many are black, or non-Christian, or gay, or have health problems?
  3. I'll just go ahead and add this as #7 on my list of immoral acts by Trumpublicans This guy really does want to transform the greatest democracy in the world into an authoritarian dictatorship. Do his supporters not see that, or do they, again, just not care because they are on the side with power, and they aren't the ones being threatened with being locked up or beaten up for their political beliefs?
  4. Found these statistics interesting and relevant here: http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/02/23/u-s-religious-groups-and-their-political-leanings/ I was a bit surprised to see the diversity of political leanings among the religious. This is the statistic that I had in my head: GOP remains about 73% white Christian So, being religious doesn't automatically mean you're a Republican, but being a Republican pretty much means you're religious, in fact Christian, in fact white Christian.
  5. Yeah, I guess I don't get it. What immoral behavior have you seen out of Democrats lately? If we started a list, I'm pretty sure one would be a WHOLE LOT longer than the other. In fact, here's a quick start to such a list: Immoral acts by Democrats: I'm assuming most Christians would put legalized abortion here, and I'm guessing that could be what you were hinting at? Immoral acts by Republicans: Sexual assault Racism Misogyny Child abuse (family separations) Mocking people with disabilities, victims of sexual assault, etc. Money laundering, lying to the FBI and certainly more to come from Mueller I'll stop there, but you get my point. It's not like you can hold your nose, and look past one infraction. We're talking about a long list of horrible moral offenses. I guess I don't see how anyone can justify the trade-off needed to go ahead and endorse someone like that. I guess there are the one-issue abortion voters, but that's a separate discussion (why do Republicans care so much about an unborn child and yet turn their backs on them as soon as they pass through the birth canal? And why do they refuse to support sex education and birth control if they fear unwanted pregnancies?)
  6. I've had this question on my mind the last few days, and found this thread is a good place to pose it: is it immoral to vote for Republicans this November? I was raised in a Catholic, Republican household, and I credit my upbringing (at least in part) with instilling in me a certain moral compass. I'm struggling with how some of my family members who I thought had similar morals are still planning to vote Republican in the mid-terms. To be clear, I firmly believe there is no longer a Republican party that doesn't fully endorse and enable Donald Trump. Together, Trump and his GOP supporters have enabled/incited racism, separated children from their parents on a mass scale, sexually assaulted women and bragged about it, and now put an attempted rapist on the Supreme Court. I could go on, and we can debate each one of these, but I think its pretty clear that the party of Trump has no moral compass. They only care about themselves and their bank statements. So, if you vote for them again this November, aren't you helping enable their immoral behavior? Endorsing it? Or, at least saying you don't care if they do these things? Does that make casting that vote an immoral act in and of itself?
  7. A guy who thinks that contraception is abortion is way too extreme to be sitting on the Supreme Court. But yes, he'll probably get there - until Trump is impeached and, if found guilty of treason, the Dems push to annul everything he did while in office. Illegitimate POTUS = 2 illegitimate SCOTUS appointees.
  8. Well, about 10% of it. 90% of his career is being hidden from us.
  9. Anyone still think religion isn't dangerous when it creeps into public policy? Might as well put the pope on the Supreme Court and just go full-on Christian theocracy.

  11. It will happen eventually. The time needed is inversely correlated with the amount of power the GOP has. (BTW, I grew up religious and Republican. I've wised up and left both. )
  12. Except I think it can be changed if he sends a copy of himself down here to Earth so he can sacrifice himself to himself, stay dead for a weekend, and then go back home. It's kind of a like a reboot that's a little easier on us than another global flood.
