And what if Bernie was in office now instead of Trump? He came close to pushing Hillary out - either because of white male misogyny that seems to still be an issue; or because they actually wanted free universal healthcare & college for everyone. Same with Trump voters, some had real reasons to vote for him & some just had spiteful attitudes. How do you think the country would have responded? Personally, because I come from a conservative Christian home, I believed Trump's militant supporters who they said they would have responded with guns if Hillary won. What if Bernie had caused the upset?

Agreed, should be fun. I'm hoping discussion from a harmless angle on the election will inspire different responses than the fighting. Hillary could have campaigned differently. Misogyny was also prevelant. White men made SURE she didn't win.
That is the thing I keep trying to get across to people - just bcuz we voted for Obama, doesn't mean we're all raging liberals. I've always voted on both sides of the isle (Reagan, Bush1) & so do many other people. Labels have been really harmful
i can never vote repub,because of their stand on abortion.but i could leave dems...dont want to.im a kennedy dem.and so was obama,is hillary."affordable, not free".but if its not affordable,make it so! make profits on luxury items, not neccessities!
well, theyre planning it, thats for sure. i heard hugh hewitt on npr...wrote a book, the 4th way. says they can have total gop rule for decades to come. karl roves "permanent majority". bye bye rights. hello poverty.
GOP are firm believers in money trickling down economic divides. I think they are as delusional as they think Dems are: neither Dems nor GOP majority voted Obama or Trump into office. GOP don't have enough people anymore & Dem voters are split.
which is why they rely on redistricting, voter suppression, purging voter rolls, everything and anything to prevent people from voting. its a sad state of affairs...and unamerican AS HELL!
Agreed. We really need at least one new big political party to compete & let the other two fall into the dust. Its the 21st Century & most people don't think the same way about things, anymore. Our 'new' country is growing up. *sniff* ;)
Thats why I don't commit to either side. I'm not sure I could vote 4 Bernie - the same way many GOPers had a hard time voting 4 Trump. Obama hijacked the Dems similarly (but with more support) in 2008. 3rd term for people's pick. Does GOV hear?
