    Is there any one policy both Trump & Anti-Trump crowds agree on - in the same way? Tricky question.

    I can't think of one, but I will freely-admit that my brain doesn't always think of everything. Is there any policy - at all - we can not only agree about, but agree on how to acheive the goal?

    For instance, most of us want world peace - its how to acheive it that differs. Everyone wants fewer abortions, but we differ on how to bring them down: through laws or by rethinking how/why so many of those decisions are made - and reducing them. We all want clean air & water; and we want the Earth to be here for generations to come... You get the point. Are there any SOLUTIONS we can agree on?

    Creating jobs by rebuilding the nations infrastructure, highways, bridges, airports...etc Both parties are in favor of doing this.
    With regard to abortion NPR.org posted an article in January 2017 stating abortions are at their lowest recording point.
    "The abortion rate in the United States fell to its lowest level since the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalized abortion nationwide, a new report finds."
    - Sarah McCammon
    Having more access to better and safer birth control methods at cheaper prices are likely to continue to help continue to drive them down.
    It would also be great if they came up with something for men like a shot or pill. Condoms were invented back in the 1800s!
    Lastly I believe people are actually more positive with their local communities politics.(Mayors, sheriffs, councilmen,treasure..etc)
    The media always shines a light on D.C. where there's all this infighting going on. Nevertheless thousands of towns dotted across the U.S. are not embroiled in that kind of stuff with their local town politicians.
    Maybe it's because they actually see their constituents daily.

      so the same would be true with drug use?
      Women want to abort the life, yet they don't want to be held responsible for making bad choices. What percentage of abortion is from rape or assault versus the morning after whoops

      I really did not mean for this to be about abortion, I was giving an example. Being pro-choice doesn't mean we don't want fewer abortions. Eliminating choice isn't the answer: inspiring good self-confidence & personal responsibility in kids is.

      bradmasterOCcal, I never said anything about the topic of Pro-life vs Pro-choice. I simply noted abortions have gone down in relation to the question asked.
      FYI- Drug addiction especially heroine and prescription addiction are on the rise.

    There is no common ground and issues don't matter because the left and the right are diametrically opposed.

    It is not just with Trump, they have been doing it for several decades. It makes the country look like it is being run by democrat and republicans on a see saw. When one is up the other is down.

    A seesaw doesn't move forward and neither does the US Congress.

    The left has no real plan, and neither did HRC and that is why she lost. The left has the same HRC plan, hate Trump. So even if they agree in spirit with Trump on an issue, they will reject it because of him.

    Since the 70s, both parties have contributed to the decline of the country, and remember in 2008 everyone in congress was campaigning, for themselves, their party, and no one was running the country.

    These were the professional politicians that Trump is not a part of, and yet people keep saying that is a problem. Look at the history of both parties and the result is failure for the country and the American way of life.

    You would think that everyone could agree that illegal aliens that are convicted of crimes should be deported, but no, that is why sanctuary cities exist. Under existing immigration law being a convicted felon demands deportation.
    Yet, we can't even agree on following existing law.

    How does keeping convicted illegal aliens in the US make us feel safer. Many of these illegals are gang members like MS 13, and these gangs have been given safe haven by previous administrations, and state governments.

    There are over 2 million people in our jails and prisons, and many of them are gang members. Do your own research, I did.

    As for healthcare, the ACA supporters keep saying that repealing it will prevent people from getting insurance. But the ACA is a mandate to force people to have insurance. Having insurance but having to take it with huge deductibles is not that great because it will bankrupt you.

    The loyal party voters are the only hope for any kind of compromise. They have to lead their party as opposed to their traditional follow them blindly mode.

      I don't see ACA as being any different than being required to carry car insurance - which, we are for pretty much the same reasons. I agree it needs fixing. Many loyal party voters jumped ship this time on both sides. This election wasn't normal.

      bradmasterOCcalposted 13 months agoin reply to this

      There is a big difference. Car insurance has competition, ACA doesn't really have that same kind of competition.

      And medical costs can easily exceed car costs.

      And forcing people to have insurance takes the economics supply&demand into a monop

      MC...making it a law people have to have health insurance to make certain ALL people have health care coverage is like passing a law that ALL people have a home to end homelessness. You CAN choose to not drive. Many people don't.

    I would have to say the only thing the left and the right can agree on is that we disagree on just about everything. I don't discuss politics with friends and family who are liberal.  It doesn't end well.  We actually view one another as people from other planets when we discuss politics.  So, we don't.  I try and save my emotion for screaming at the television while watching sports.

    The short answer is NO. Unfortunately, it is politics as usual and the people gets screwed. When one party gets in, the opposition will do its best to obstruct. Even if the policy they supported, if proposed by the other side, they will vote against it. It is nuts.
    The only answer IMHO is term limits. Both party candidates talks of supporting it until they get to Washington. Then, the lobbyist and money and power gets to them and they will never vote for it or even bring it up for a vote.

    In my opinion, policies the Anti-Trump crowds accept that is between parties, if there be any, although he is incomplete in his person as is most people, he is attempting to be independent of parties but he doesn't see 360 degrees of hardly any off his proposals, should be agreed on. The problem is neither Trump nor the Anti-Trumpers see the 360 degrees of their protests. In that light, no, there are no policies they will agree on.
