Dont bail now just because your party and your entire world view have been exposed as completely morally bankrupt

Sheesh. I'm out on the road for 5 hours away from a computer and we get a thread like this one. You miss me when I'm gone. Just admit it.

Whether I am proud of the party or not, I am stoked that Trump slowed your roll.

There was a GOP before Trump showed up and there'll continue to be one after he's gone. No matter what, half of everyone will never just roll over and cede control to the other half of everyone in perpetuity. Political power in the U.S. will continue to shift back and forth, just as it always has. Shoot, the DNC has it's own internal power struggle going on right now which demonstrates that point.

Being morally bankrupt doesn't at all mean going extinct. There's obviously a lot of support for morally bankrupt.

What can I say? There are a lot of people in the U.S. who think it's more morally bankrupt to be a liberal.

You seem to you equate democrat with liberal. Plenty aren't.

And yet, plenty of people do conflate the two as being the same. Bear in mind, what we're talking about here are people's opinions and perceptions. You know, how conservatives are commonly ilked as misogynists, racists and fascists.

The title of the thread deals references Republicans, not conservatives. Just thought it was interesting that you went to liberals rather than democrats.

Plenty of people doing what you do doesn't make it accurate.

Why would anyone be proud of a political party?

Again, in a discussion about the winds of political power the decisions people make almost always hinge on their perceptions and opinions. Sometimes to the exclusion of "the truth".

Alternately, sometimes a F-U is just a F-U. i think it's safe to say a certain percentage of Trump's support is based primarily on the F-U factor. The antipathy from both sides are - to a large degree - mutual.

The 2 party system ensures that the extremes of both parties run the show.
