I think what wears me out the most is the lack of what we're doing now
You're not the type of person I was talking about then. I was referring to those on this board, and others, that make outrageous claims, then just drop out and don't answer any questions.
The membership of Blue's is overall fairly reasonable compared to most sites, which is why this is literally the only place on the internet that I regularly respond to political topics. Like Mr. Tact, I also subscribe to and read some conservative blogs. I also regular listen to Left, Right, and Center which always has at least one conservative. I generally avoid broadcast political news. I find MSNBC just as unwatchable as Fox. Many years ago, I was a registered Republican, but I left the party and became independent when W. was elected, and the Republicans decided that facts and reality didn't matter anymore. In the USA these days, being a centrist means voting Democrat, though, since they're the only party that wants a functioning government.
I have several relatives that are more reasonable conservatives. When I do have long discussions when them on politics, there's a common thread. Most of their positions are actually much closer to the Democrats, but they either having a seething, personal hatred for one or more Democratic politicians (but don't care if members of the Republican party act the same or worse - haven't figured that one out yet), or they're religious and strictly anti-abortion and that one issue is enough to get them to vote agaist all their other interests.
It sounds like you voted for Trump, so I'd ask, why do trust someone who is unapolegectically corrupt, and who has lied (as of last count) over 30,000 times as President?
