    Yes, that's been specified. But the going about it. Have they thought about any of it. Not just that it should happen, but what that means. How it should happen. All people who are any color other than white gets a choice: they leave the country, or go into the containment complex. Seriously, I truly want to know how far they have gone in their mind to figure things out.

    That never happens.
    I have met some. They hate Trump.

    I hope you will return the favor and just talk, instead of reacting.

    This is my post from the broken Iran deal thread.

    "Is anybody else wondering what hell he is going to unleash on us when we have no allies left and there is no one to protect or defend us? I figure the prison-for-pay complex will house all the undesirables that he canít keep out or ship back to their country of origin. Thereís already a pretty good start on that.

    There will probably be separate prisons for LGBTQ.

    I wonder where they will put the people who wonít Pledge Allegiance to the one true God.

    I donít think we will be killed, thereís no money in that. But I will be absolutely unfazed if the prison thing happens.

    PS: donít forget to toss in The Handmaids Tale."

    My equation is approximately:

    What he's done thus far + what you want him to do = what a "Christian Nation" looks like.

    Protections have already been removed for the lesser among us.

    He's already made hate 'okay,' so people who 'look different' can be attacked, both physically and verbally.

    Women's rights being eroded actually pre-date him, with all the closing of Planned Parenthood locations and attempts to reverse Roe v. Wade.

    I will once again remind you that I hope you will answer sincerely: What does a Christian Nation look like to you. No gay marriage? No gay relationships? No gays, period. Conversion therapy for all?

    Nobody living "in sin." People can only live together if they're married? How far does the government intrude, when said government is based on religion?

    No abortions, even to save the life of the mother? Even after tests indicate she will give birth to a monster without a brain? Or a baby who will live in unending pain for the very short life span it has with such a disease?

    No food stamps, no helping the anyone, ever?

    People who can't afford insurance - they just die? Emergency rooms aren't forced to treat them?

    Homeless should be in one of the prisons I mentioned above, but the name should be changed to reflect that they are being warehoused due to lack of funds. What happens to the children of the homeless? Do they go to be warehoused with their parents?

    There's a lot to think about, but I have to go to work.


    I wonder if the people who fight for these things actually want them, or do they just want to fight. I would think a biblical government would be just as hard on conservatives as it would on liberals.

    It is all about "winning" - money and power, nothing else. They cannot win if they do not fight. Someone, anyone.

    Oh, definitely ... a Torah-based government would not be kind to mean people. Nor would one based on the ethical principles of the New Testament (derived from Judaism in the first place). Fortunately for them, the the overwhelming majority of the Torah does not apply to non-Jews, anyway.

    Trump is easy to hate as a person. The ego, the pouty face, the whining, the willful ignorance, the childish taunting, the meanness. I try to not react to that, and keep my criticism of him about his policies or lack thereof and measuring the damage to the country.

    So far, the deregulation and the appointment of conservative judges seem to me to be the things that will have the most long term effects. Although I can't say what will happen with him pulling us out of the Iran agreement.

    HCProf is also more on the conservative side. And Macduff is not a Trump fan.

    Macduff is sometimes a vociferous defender of Trump, as for instance on this dumping of the Iran deal; and he has also been a defender of the torture policies of the Bush/Cheney administration. Call him a conservative who sometimes leaves his thinking cap at home.
