    I never said that. I've only maintained that corportism is the prefered economic system of America's wealthy. I've also maintained that both the Democratic party and the Establishment Republicans represent America's wealthy.

    There is no cultural war. These people were brought up to think this way,into the second and third generation. I have seen this all my life,they just managed to gain some control,thanks to evil politicians like Mitch and his tribe.

    Now,they are being eaten by the monsters they defended.
    You were saying?

    GOP will gain seats in 2018, The RINOs will be primarried out and they will be replaced with "TEA" party Republicans.

    The Donald will win reelection in 2020. If he does not run the Pence will be the next POTUS.


    Coker will be replaced with Marsha Blackburn, Manchen will be replaced too.

People here have this idea that minorities and immigrants are handed goodies by the government just for the asking. In urban areas, people don't want the government in their business because what they mostly see is police in action. Long lines at the DMV and price gouging through fees, parking tickets, etc. In reality they really do want less government as opposed to thinking they're being neglected by it. Of course they also understand crime is a problem in cities, so they put with it, but the cops are pretty intrusive and over zealous and seem intent on revenue collection more than anything else. Here, people don't even think about the cops because they barely ever see them.

    I'd love to drop any of the people whining about this stuff and drop them into some of the places I've lived - they wouldn't last a day.
    That is the very definition of a culture war. Thinking "they who live there" gets things without working for them or handouts. Somehow they are looked at better, treated better and paid more attention to. Someone said its because we don't move about as much anymore for work so we aren't exposed to others anymore. We stay with the same people in the same area and it affects us. We don't trust newcomers who weren't born in the same area.

    Historical patterns run contrary to that prediction.

    The non-establishment wing of the Republican party is financed by the Mercers and the Koch brothers. You're being played.

    How many Republican incumbents are there vs. Democrat?

    The numbers aren't on your side.

    Lefties will never understand that we hate the RINOs and intend to destroy them.

    No, what the DNC should have done is to tell Bernie to fuck off,instead of inviting him into the Democratic primaries. Bernie wasn't a Democrat, and he was never going to be a Democrat.

    If he wants to run for President in 2020, he can damned well establish his own national network for donations, get out the vote offices, etc.
