    It's funny, if you go back and read old papers from say the 19th century it is almost a carbon copy of what people are saying about Trump, sometimes even worse.

    People tend to forget history and consider the times they are living in as the absolute worse it's ever been and that's fairly silly.

    I also don't remember anyone claiming Trump is a conservative, hell even I have said many times that he is more liberal than Hillary is.

    Try reading some of the posts here. And yes, you from your posts, you appear as a very gung ho trump supporter.
    And yes, many of the trump supporters here think trump is quite the conservative.
    So you pretty much wasted your time typing out your bs reply.

    How enlightened has the human race really become? Not much has changed imo, we're still a brutal species. Killers.

    What does enlightenment have to do with killing and why do you think they are opposites?

    So they all shut up and go along with it.

    You can see that on this forum. Rarely will you ever see a lefty speak out against their own party but those of us on the right have no problem finding fault with ours, such as the OP showed in his example with Trump and foreign policy. You will never hear a leftist here complain that they are doing anything wrong even if they think there is a problem.
    we aren't like you who defends trumps lies. Lol and all the praise you have for Obama getting us out of the hole....

Right now, there are rumors that there is an internal power struggle between Reince Preibus and his crew of "moderates" and Bannon's "National populism". All this and Trump was a registered Democrat up until September of 2009! Can you believe that?
    NeverTrump isn't a thing anymore. There's no point in trying to pledging to never vote for him after he won the election.

    Yes, they shouldn't be called "NeverTrumpers"...


    they should be called "Vichy Trumpers".
