    Said the same yesterday about Reagan, that we shouldn't hold him up as a God, he was just a man who did good but made mistakes.
    So the boom just sort of happened?

    I know that. Success bothers TDS sufferers. His agenda hasn't changed an iota and he has gotten more done in his first two years than Obama got with his super-majority.

    I love these posts. I can enjoy the crying liberals over and over again.

    The run-up to the general election in 2020 is going to be an interesting test of exactly where the Republican Party is and where it is headed. I believe we're going to see a head-to-head conflict - some of it behind the scenes and some of it public - between those who believe in traditional conservative values, such as those you mentioned, and adherents of the Trump cult of personality. Stand by to see whatever Republican candidates dare to oppose Trump's reelection slandered, attacked and flat-out lied about unmercifully. Hopefully, a sufficient number of the American people, including especially moderate Republicans and right-leaning Independents, will declare themselves tired of Trump's monkey cage antics and go another direction.

    You've made the accusation - now why don't you enlighten us. What has Trish ever written that would lead you to the conclusion that she hates America?

    What laws has he upset? Where has he undermined this country? How has he hurt our Constitution?

    Don't whine and cry about how he has dome what you don't want. That's one of his selling points.

    To them, being anything other than a liberal in complete lock-step makes one a racist.

    If I didn't feel the obligation to actually respond to posts I disagreed with, and simply tossed around the "TDS" meme when I felt myself at a loss for something intelligent to say, I'd probably enjoy the forum as much as you do, Cap.

    Hillary Clinton was the epitome of trash.

    I hope that the Democrats continue this drift to the left and Republicans return to their conservative roots. This would give people a real choice for a change.

    Why do you assume we are all Republicans? Trump isn't.
