Yabo, you’re laying out a sane chain of hypotheticals with people that don’t believe in reality. The sad part is your Ilk (fiscal conservatives) is probably down to 10% of the population. I’m still a fiscal conservative. However, I gave up on the Republican Party back in 2006. The social side is where I differ to the extreme. I like to treat people with respect, regardless of their position in life.
The modern Republican Party doesn't believe in conservatism anymore nor do they give two sh*ts about the middle class. The new tax laws alone tell you that. Adding 2 trillion to the national debt while 83% of the tax cut going to corporations and wealthy individuals ought to sicken someone like you. It does me and I hugely benefited from the new tax laws.
The Trump base is down to using hate rage websites and deflection. Thankfully, his base is shrinking by the day. However, racists will never leave him. That’s a given. He’s one of them and they have great pride in having one of their own in the Oval Office.
I for one one am horrified at how many people in this country are complete racists. It’s good to get the truth out and let people evaluate relationships based on that. If anything, what Trump did right was to bring the racists to the surface instead of hiding in the shadows. I would have never figured out certain family members were just that.
Could you imagine a Charlottesville under any other presidential term?
