Our nation politicizes everything; from sports, to television, to global migration, history, and now even natural disasters. The current environment of the nation is anti-police, anti-republican, anti-democrat, anti-law, anti-etc. (we're quickly becoming the United States of Anti) It makes me wonder if we could all come together as a nation in the event of something that threatens the sovereignty of the country or attacks our way of life. What are your thoughts?

I'd love to say I fully agree with you Jack, but with the media always stirring the pot and social media full of fake news, it's hard to believe we could do it.
Its also hard when the current occupant is one by one dismantling everything the former occupant put in place....thereby dismissing half the country. Seems you all dont want unity, but submission.
Lovemychris, it is not dismantling but restoring the rule of law. Many of Obama's executive actions including DACA were unConstitutional. I know word seem alien to you but some of us on the right do care. Our country is not a country, once we foresak
Hmmm. So its unconstititional for obama to do it, but its constitutional for trump to undo it? More white male privilege, or what?
on things like DACA, it was unconstitutional for Obama to do what he did. What can you show us that Trump has done which is unconstitutional Leslie?
Undoing daca! Cant be ok for one man and not the other....you know, like obamas eo's make him a tryant, trumps get cheered.
You need a lesson on civics my friend. I have just the couse for you. Checkout my hub american civics 101.
Let me explain how it applied to this case. Obama used executive action to write a new law DACA.This was unConstitutional. Only Congress can.
Jack, according to anyone on the left, Obama could never do any wrong. Everything he did according to them was the right. Now Trump is in America has a chance.
So how come trump can undo a law?
It wasn't a law. That's the thing the lefts can't get through their heads.
So obama's not allowed to make a policy as president? Is that what you're saying?
He was allowed to make policies, but they weren't done legally. Plain and simple.
So if putting a policy in place is not legal, how is removing one legal?
Answers like this one make me have hope for the future!
We could all be more hopeful if we stopped listening to news media, sports/entertainment personalities promoted by media, and the fashionistas they all focus on. :)
How about trumps election speech. Would you call that hopeful? Thats straight from the horses mouth.
Quite a few people found his election speech very hopeful.
I found it so creepy and negative. In my head i was saying "what country is he talking about?". His america is totally opposite of mine.
So what is your America Leslie? A socialist paradise? No laws, no borders, no jails, and everything free from the gov't? Who pays for everything in "your America," the rich? Big businesses? Seriously - let's hear your vision...
The one i grew up in. Where a job got you a life. Where neighbors got together and fixed your car FOR FREE. Where problems were acknowledged, not scoffed at. And where crooks who escaped prison didnt say our president hates america.(ollie north v bo)
The world does change (and hint, it's not the GOP's fault for the world changing) If you want to go back in history to determine where things went off the rails, then good luck. Have you tried bringing solutions to the table instead of blame?
I did my part. I voted for hillary. Now i get to sit back and watch what your side does to this country. So far, not impressed.
You're not impressed because it isn't going your way and it actually looks like America is on the road to being great again. You're unhappy because the one you voted for turned out to be a poor loser. That happened simply because she made mistakes.
Anything positive that happens is due to the 8 years of barack obama and the policies he put in place. If you seriously are saying in 8 months trump turned us from recession to pulling out, i have many things to sell you. Trump is turning us back.
YOU just said it. Trump has only been president for 8 months and you, and the left, seems to think he is supposed to work miracles. Give the man a chance and you will be surprised. But then, his success is what you are all afraid of..
Funny. He gives himself credit for everything. Oh,btw...how much of a chance did you give obama? I know the gop party in congress vow was say no to everything obama...how long before you called him a failure? Dont know why we always have to be better
Obama had 8 years and still didn't get it right.
When did you first decide you dont like him?
Trump can take credit for the jobs - and the stock market - and the reduction in size of many bloated depts. - and of course for beating the pants off of the most corrupt criminal in political history, Hillary Clinton
I decided I didn't like Obama when I first saw pictures of him joining flag burning parties when he was in college. And then when he disrespected the flag and national anthem after he was elected the first time. Worse than anything Trump has been acc
So you never gave him a chance as president. Yet you are demanding i do so for dirty don the con. Smh. White. Male. Privilege!!!! What facts hillary is corrupt? Your boyz in congress couldnt show any. And rush, klannity and breitbart dont count. Evah
It's astonishing how anyone can turn a possible terrorist attack into an attack on liberals.
"Our nation politicizes everything." Yep, even here on HP.
Or an attack on Conservatives- have you seen the comments made by the global warming fan club?
Funny the attack on 9/11 happened on republicans watch. And yet he blames liberals. Even now, some rightys say 9/11 was obamas fault! And global warming is a fact. Chemical plant asked trump to remove regs. People vomited and couldnt breathe. Thanks
LMC, I'd like to point out that the discussion isn't 9/11 but a theoretical similar terrorist attack in the future. Learn some history and see how liberals handled 9/11.
I lived through it. And the constant condemnation of my views. Buy you get to freely express whatever you like anytime....who ever told you you hate america? The rightwing bullying ends now. You have the entire usa...let's see how you handle it.
Mike, are you seriously denying your post is not an attack on the left? Where in the Bible does it say "Love your neighbor and hate all liberals"? Ralph, I believe this thread is about terrorist attacks and not global warming.
Scot, I don't attack the left. Mock, taunt laugh at and illustrate the absurdity of their positions on the issues is something I do daily. Never attack. I believe that liberalism is evil and I'm sure you know how the bible tells us to fight evil.
You must be an old testament guy. Cause the new one tells you to love your enemies.
YD, then why don't you love Trump. YOU seem to think he is your enemy.
I dont claim to be a christian, and use it to justify all sorts of foul things. But i do consider trump an enemy of the usa. Actively working against her, and lying to cover his crimes. Making money on the office of prez. Truly a deplorable specimen.
Yes! Like putin hacking our election and the dems wanting justice, while republicans cry, "dont hurt my donald"
