    Funny how the same voters who hated Bush-Cheney are now working together with their architects. And, as we see here, completely unaware of how they have been played and turned into good little warmongers and tools of the secret police.

    When I see Democrats citing Republicans who oppose Trump as some sort of appeal to authority that's going to convince people that orangemanisbad, it reminds me that after 4 years of Trump they still don't get it - and are guaranteed to lose the next election because they have no idea what the market wants.

    In the spirit of generosity, and hoping beyond hope that one or two Dems are capable of learning, here it is again:

    People supported Trump because they got tired of Republican do-nothings, rinos and appeasers. They have no respect for the Republicans you hope to sway them with. Get a clue. At least make the game interesting. At this rate, it's like playing chess with a 2 year old. A two year old who gets frustrated, knocks the pieces off the table and declares it a "stupid" game.

    Take this step, and maybe you can one day graduate to talking about what really matters in the US - and it has nothing to do with who is president.

    You're welcome.

    A lot of people voted for Trump because Hillary was awful. Trump won the republican primary because media outlets helped him win. They showered him with free air-time and starved his competitors.

    Trump is a horrible person. He's better on issues conservatives, republicans, libertarians care about than leftist and understands the economy better than anyone expected.

    Sen Chris Murphy went behind the State Dept and Executive branch to hold secret meetings with Iran.

    Same thing he demanded General Flynn be investigated for when Flynn had a phone call with his counterpart in Russia before Trump took office.

    I'm sure there will be a thousand ex government officials and media personalities signing a letter protesting his attempt to undercut American foreign policy any day.

    Real wages up, more full time jobs under Trump. Interest rates stable, real estate market is rebounding, inflation is steady.

    DOJ isn't suing companies for billions, then funneling the money to leftist political groups and projects congress refused to fund.

    Tariffs forcing countries to renegotiate trade agreements to USA's benefit.

    But yeah... the economy recovered after a great recession so Obama %'s are higher.

    Problem in China is getting real. What happens if it continues and their economy goes into a recession? Does the Government change?
    Does it help or hurt the world economy?

    Well, China has a reserve of 4.2 trillion bucks, the USA has a reserve of 870 billion.

    I think they will be fine through the Coronavirus , it is hurting them right now no doubt, but it is hurting US businesses as well that depend on Chinese goods to operate.


    The CDC put out a memo last week saying they are preparing for a big US outbreak of Coronavirus, should the Coronavirus start sweeping through states , it will be devastating for US business , and if that were to happen, the world economy could be in bad shape IMO

    I think @Domainace makes a valid point.

    we are equally divided with Republican Party voters at 50% , Democratic Party voters 50% , both sides will stick to their party affiliation come hell or high water.

    Bridging the great divide is Independent voters like myself , there are independent voters that stand for many things, Socialism , , Republic, constitutionalists , republic, democracy.

    I am the bottom half, with the republic being most important followed by the constitution. I think Independents make up a much larger number than either party, I would guess around 40% vs say 30% - 30% per the two party’s.

    We will be the tie breaker in this election just as we were in the 2016 election.

    2016 nor the 2020 election is about the physical figure that will seat as President, it is about the beliefs of each individual independent voter.

    MAYOR PETE VOWS TO OPEN UP OBAMACARE TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
    Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg promised an illegal immigrant on Sunday they would have taxpayer-funded health care if he was elected president.

    “As you know, the Affordable Care Act, one of the many missing pieces that it has is that the exchanges are not available to the undocumented,” Buttigieg said. “I would change that, and that would be a change that would come with the ‘Medicare-for-All-Who-Want-It’ plan that I am proposing.”
