    How about...

    "I support Bernie Sanders....but I oppose the majority of Sanders' agenda. I'm a Republican, support Republicans, have voted straight Republican in the past, defend Republicans, attack Democrats and liberals....but still expect people to believe I support Bernie Sanders."?

    No need to get personal. This thread is about ideas, not about me.

    By the way, I voted twice for Bill Clinton.

    And I did not vote for the new GOP congressman representing my district in Washington. Could not pull the lever for Glenn Grothman.



    It's flattering how you obsess on me but you're not doing it well. Since I mean so much to you, it would behoove you to pay a little closer attention to all that I have said, so that there wouldn't be quite so much dissonance. I invest time in explaining the nuances of my positions. You ignore all of that in your effort to paint me as a caricature.

    Now, if you insist on continuing to call me out as disingenuous while at the same time ignoring a quarter of what I say, forgive me for not playing with you anymore.

    Actually, I've given you more than enough chances to start paying attention to the actual terms and nuances in my positions and you keep pounding that caricature.

    Welcome to ignore for the near term at least.

    People on the no fly list should be able to buy guns because the government is short circuiting due process and The way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have good guys with guns.

    Islamists don't kill people, their guns and homicide vests do.

    People are killed in car accidents.......let's ban all cars cause they are dangerous!!! Actually let's not, I need to get to work...

    People are shot and wounded and killed by guns, let's make it harder to obtain firearms......Actually let's not.....I need it for protection to shoot someone.....I really didn't want to see less people shot anyway.....

    Criminals will always be able to find firearms even if you ban them......but if a law abiding citizen found a way to obtain a firearm when they were banned, the same way criminals can, they wouldn't be criminals.........they would still be law abiding.....

    If you are law abiding....you will forever be, law abiding.......just ask the criminals.....they know...
