Because I refuse to let politics put me in therapy.
How many here think Trump's news conference this evening was absolutely brilliant
I literally cannot even begin to understand why anyone who is not an absolute ignorant bigot could possibly support him. Why do you people willingly turn a blind eye to all of his childish Twitter rants and victim blaming and racist/sexist remarks and detrimental executive orders if you're not as full of hate as he is? - says a lot right here.
For the record, I don't like Hillary or some of her policies or some of the controversies she's been involved in.
But even I can see that not *all* people who voted Hillary are fatally flawed or bigots.
It's a bit sad that Nevuela can't be as reasonable with Trump voters ...
Name ONE thing he has actually done (not promised to do but has DONE) that outweighs all of the horrible, despicable, embarrassingly immature things he has said since the campaign trail.
Abolished the disgraceful undermining of due process that Obama put in place. Reversed Obama's halt to identifying identify theft. Enforcing border control. Denuclearization with North Korea. Standing up to Iraq instead of giving them $b's in cash for terrorism. Got the economy booming. Lowest unemployment ever. Wage rises after a decade of stagnation. Removal of anti-democratic actors in positions of important institutions.
Oh, sorry ... you said just "one". :D
why do you bash Obama, or the Bushes, or Clinton? Each of them has done at least one good thing
Name Obama's one achievement ...
Don’t kid yourself Simon. The United States have some of the most generous agricultural subsidies on the planet. If Canada didn’t have supply management we would have to heavily subsidize dairy and poultry. Maybe that is the way to go. Heavily subsidize these producers like the US does. It might keep Trump happy.
Either way we pay. Higher milk prices or higher taxes to pay the farmers to stay in business.
Obama -- he doesn't have one achievement other than being a party-swamp leader.
Got the economy booming.
The economy was booming under Obama. What Trump has done in the past year is less than one tenth of the amazing economic gain Obama did under his first year. Trump is a total failure. The economy is moving at a snails pace. And income growth is completely stagnant.
We need real economic leadership in this country. The sooner we get Republicans out of power the sooner we can start seeing a booming economy again. The Republicans are good for lots of things - but the economy is not one of them. The economy has always done MUCH better under Democrats.

I'm referring to the right for interracial marriages, the right to choose not to stand for the Pledge, the right to choose your own birth control, the right for consenting adults to do what they want in their own privacy, and even, sigh, the right for gays to marry. Were any of those entitlements? Or things for which the government should stay out of people's lives?
Normally I'm against conservative justices as liberal ones give us more rights.
I think you are confusing “rights” and “entitlements”.
He literally reminds me of the head bully elder or a CO. Every cong has one. The narcissism is just off the charts.
Its seems rather odd ex dubs are so in love with him. I am just having flashbacks of things I would rather forget.
