Surely, there are many mistakes, but I do not feel POTUS or the Republicans are ALL wrong as the left believes. I do know a lot of people did the same exact thing I did. In fact, I think the percentage of disgruntled, disappointed, frustrated Dems helped to bring Trump into office. I am seriously wondering just how the Democratic party can win myself back and the others? I still have the same values I always have had. I am truly not a Republican; but neither am I on the far left. I would like to hear your response.
    Explain why you consider the party far left today. As for Hillary, what policies did you not support that led you to vote in essence for Trump regardless of who you voted for?

    At this point, I no longer want to discuss your opinions anymore because any Democrat that voted for Donald was never a Democrat in the first place. Your vote ushered in an abomination that was clearly visible during the long public life of Trump. I hope you learn something here because you need a lesson in the reality of voting for one party or the other. They are not the same.

    You seem to be saying that if you didn't vote for hillary, regardless of who you voted for, it was a vote for trump. I hope that isn't what you actually think, because that would be pure hogwash.

    Frecks is not a particularly political person with any agenda.

    I try to infect everyone I like with my political interests but most of them pay me no never-mind.......especially if they have one of those silly things like ......A Life!!

    Frecks is a busy gal......friends, family, bridge, hearts. golf....but she humors me by posting here occasionally. (something my wife and kids would never do....the ingrates!)
    I have to be careful, Devil, or I may get addicted to this as you are! Then what would happen to my "life"!!!!

    If you didn't vote for a Democrat or a Republican in 2016, then you might as well have just stayed at home. Not voting against Trump was a missed opportunity for anyone who doesn't personally admire what he stands for. So, if you passed up a chance to vote against Trump in a meaningful way, then you enabled his presidency.

    No, that is completely wrong. If we follow that same logic, then by voting 3rd party or writing in your own candidate, that means you didn't vote for trump. So following the same logic, that would equal a vote for hillary.
    But you don't get to bestow these mystical powers on other peoples votes. You can only do that with your own vote.
    Thanks from Jets
