@lightweight yes. that's it. that's the toot. yes.
there's nearly no signs i can see of having a genuine, honest principle or belief that they'll keep to. everything is 100% politics, of an aggressive, mean-spirited, in-group versus everyone-else sort. the enemy is anything that questions them, and they will flex & bend & twist any way they need to to support one another in refusing to allow anything that might possibly give aid succor or help to anyone that doesn't look or talk exactly like them.
@jauntywunderkind420 I revile the GOP... but I have very little time for the DEMs either. I'm quite sure the US needs to destroy the current duopoly and find a progressive government, like what Sanders would've provided, to restore any semblance of internal unity or external respect. The US conservatives (even most US 'liberals' are very conservative by non-US standards) are simply selfish and anti-intellectual... wanting to retain privilege and even respect they didn't earn.
