We've never been in this place in my entire life, and I'll be sixty in June.
    I mean, Putin too appealed to ignorant nationalism, xenophobia, and racism for public support, just like Trump... But Trump, thank God, has not actually gone so far as to blow up sleeping families in their own homes...

    To a large extent, this is true, and I would agree. Yet it may have been just enough Catholics in the key swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, who were swayed by some last-minute Russian propaganda, to cast their votes for Donald Trump, hence turning the election to him----only a swing of about 77 thousand total votes in those four states would have done it. And one bit of propaganda that was spreading in the ten days before the election was a false claim that Pope Francis had endorsed Donald Trump because of his anti-abortion stance.

    Now, anyone who had been following the campaign all along would have known that was hogwash, because Trump and Pope Francis had had very harsh words for each other some months earlier, over the issue of building a wall on the Mexican border. Pope Francis said "Christians build bridges, not walls", and questioned Trump's Christianity. Trump called that 'disgraceful'-----even though less than a week earlier, he himself had questioned the Christian beliefs of Ted Cruz!!

    But of course, there are low-info voters, who don't start paying any attention to politics until the last two weeks or so before a national election. How many Catholic low-info voters in those states may have heard this 'news' that Pope Francis had 'endorsed' Donald Trump, and voted accordingly?

    The correct answer is: We will NEVER know!

    That depends heavily on who you are talking about. Most conservative Protestants care about a mixture of the two, basically cherry-picking what they find important.

    Lots of thought went into my response. Based on your top post, liberals will become more and more irrationally paranoid. That is what America will look like.
    I'm sorry if you can't understand the question. Have a good night.

    My issue is this: I've yet to meet a critical-thinking conservative. There's very little thinking, and a great deal of reacting. I want them to THINK. I want them to really look at what they want, and see where it leads. Extrapolate.

    That never happens.
    Thanks from Babba

    Well there are millions here despite comments more are leaving. They keep coming because they know we will cave in. We encourage the migrations, liberals support it. Every day , every year they cross the border. Every year democrats cover for them. There are so many in the system, immigration courts are so back logged. What a joke we are. Mexico is not our friend on this. Time to turn off the money to Mexico.
    AS long as I can remember it was said a minimum 10-12 million illegals are here.

    Let's take your upper estimate of 12 million illegal immigrants here, even though I think the lower number of 10 million is more likely. That's out of a total population of Americans of more than 323 million. So the percentage of illegal aliens among us is about 3.7%.

    That's what you think is leading to the end of the Republic.

    Yes, that's PARANOID.

    Thor, you still haven't addressed the OP. What "America" would accurately reflect your values and expectations.

    Well, it would be much, MUCH whiter, that's for sure.
