Liberal democrats do the same shit Spoletta.
Democrats social action these days is opportunistic in my opinion (see the Hillary flip flop). The religious-right's ideas on this stuff makes my skin crawl, but I feel they are true to form with that, not putting on a show.
So, as soon as you're disappointed, you turn your back on an entire party.
I am and always have been partyless. There was a time in this country before my day, when people belonged to parties but had their own ideas and those overlapped between the two. Now? Nope, can't do that. Their is a demand to accept all, and to be with us or against us. No one is into individuals ideas now, just left or right.
If, as you say, you are basically liberal, I'd like to hear all about what it is that you find in Trump and the Republicans that causes you to want to give them a chance.
I think we have developed a governing class that needed to be rebooted. I hated the GWB era and the Obama era as it went along. I think we always have to give republicans and democrats a chance because what other choice do we have at the moment? Trump is the president, the logical thing to do in that case is to hope they succeed regardless of what you believe. Why would you with them to fail?
So far, I see them rolling back any legislation that affects the ability of large corporations to make more money under the guise of creating new jobs.
They're gutting the EPA, denying global warming.
I have said on several occasions I think this is not good. So I am right there with you.
So far, I don't see anything here that would make liberals stand up and cheer. They aren't really. But one thing amazing Trump has done, has been to take a bite out of our PC culture, probably the one thing that makes people like him the least really when you get down to it. This is part fo the reboot.

You say you are pro-choice, pro gay rights, and all for legalization of cannabis, things that the Republicans will get rid of if they can. Tell me which of your liberal beliefs you share with the current administration?
FREEDOM OF SPEECH Conservatives despite their often backward ideas are far more constitutional in my opinion. The democratic left has become the party of intolerance masquerading as tolerant. That to me threatens our values and a much larger scale than the political issues you mentioned. There is no one person, or one party that runs things, we have a system and 50 very different states. But the biggest ideas I see as the biggest threat are coming out of the left. chipping away at constitutional rights, and making the government to big and too powerful.
Otherwise, you are a type of liberal I've never encountered before. What shall I call it?
If you really actually want to know and you are not just talking, watch this. This is what is happening with thinking people inside the democratic party, they are expressing their displeasure with the administration and leaving. Its kind of like the first time you ever criticized watchtower to someone who was in, I personally was unprepared for the backlash. If you are a democrat or liberal could you ever honestly criticize Obama or Hillary? No. because then you would be here with me, being called alt right and other names simply for being critical of the party
