    Better still would be to have the GOP of Eisenhower. But I suppose that is a forlorn hope. The Eisenhower Republicans are all but extinct. I think I am the last one.

    The Smithsonian has already contacted me. When I croak, they are going to have me stuffed and mounted, as an exhibit in their Paleontology wing: The Last of the Eisenhower Republicans.

    Yes, the US has been divided for a while. Right now, we're about as divided as we were back about 1968. That was the year of the Tet Offensive, I believe. At that time, the division was all internal, and was over a single issue: The "conflict" in Vietnam. Now, what is it over?
    The conflict today is over whether America is to be an 'open society' willing to trade and engage with the outside world, or a 'closed society', fearful and mistrusting of the outside world, a 'Fortress America' that will build Walls against the Outside World. It is a struggle between cosmopolitan America and xenophobic America, between globalist America and jingoistic America. This is no longer liberal vs conservative; it is open vs closed.

    But Trump has converted even Lindsey Graham to Trumpism. Lindsey is now one of Donald's bosom buddies.

    I don't think he is is real life. He just plays one on TV. He knows that going against Trump now could result in a lost election.

    11/6/18 will determine if this country turns into the Fourth Reich or remains a democracy. (please lets not get into the definition of democracy)
    None of that has anything to do with my comment, which was in response to your statement about the poll.

    Especially considering the truthiness and alternative facts that emanate from this administration.

    Then Lindsey turns right around, supports everything they do.
