There are valid criticisms against Trump. But he's made his career on bad press.

NeoNote — The farce continues

I don't like and don't trust Trump.

I just wanted to establish that the problems of an overreaching government and abandoning the rule of law are not just a Republican issue. For all the talk about the fundamentalists and the religious right, progressives let their own foxes into the henhouse. Those problems were just as big a threat.

The incredibly silly part is that the solution from both major parties is increasing the size, power, and scope of government only with their guys calling the shots. There are those here who call that a false equivalence because Their Cause Is Just. But when the end result expands government power, increases taxes, increases spending, adds more law and regulation, well, there's no effective difference. You're sacrificing your freedom at someone else's altar for promises that will be broken.

Politicos benefit from unsolved problems. Politicos want problems they can stage manage. Actual solutions mean politicos can't milk the misery.

As long as we expect government to rescue us, the farce continues.

“#WalkAway Campaign- WHY I LEFT LIBERALISM & THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY”

“The Democratic Party has taken for granted that it owns racial, sexual, and religious minorities in America. It has encouraged groupthink, hypocrisy, division, stereotyping, resentment, and the acceptance of victimhood mentality. And all the while, they have discouraged minorities from having independent thought, open dialogue, measured and informed opinion, and a motivation to succeed.”

I promise you this

I promise you this, the second after America starts exiling, imprisoning, or permanently disenfranchising people for political opinions, conservatives will be kicked out the same as progressives. That "solution" depends on who controls the politics. What makes you think it will be people you trust who trust you?

NeoNotes — blame game

The problem isn't Republicans. The problem isn't Democrats. The problem is an ever-expanding government and a self-appointed "elite class" that doesn't feel it's responsible to anyone, but especially not the voters.

Conservaties, progressives, & sex

When it comes to sex, conservatives want to deny choice and progressives want to deny responsibility. I want a world with both.
