I call it "The Trump Show." Partly, it's entertaining, in the "you can't make this shite up" kind of way. But there are also real policy shifts taking place that can have huge practical consequences. Also the de-evolution towards autocracy is nothing to be complacent about. It may not really happen, but maybe it can.
I come here to hear divergent opinions. I have to admit that most of the people I frequent are like minded, left leaning. I have a sister and brother in law that are very right, a brother in law's mom who is far, far right, and in those social situations I tread very lightly around political topics.

I get what you're saying, Mr. Ocean. I think that if one's level of participation is limited to arguing politics on message boards, Twitter and Facebook the only thing they'll accomplish is higher blood pressure and more people avoiding them.
This is entertainment for me, honestly I'm mostly here for the humor. I don't expect to change anyone's mind but I do appreciate others' perspectives.
But I also think this time in history is very important and will be studied for years to come. Its complexity makes it difficult to see the forest through the trees.
So far my biggest takeaway from all this is; America got trolled. Hard. Across the entire political spectrum. And we can't seem to stop feeding the troll.
