    It was really skewed way back when ronnie ray gun and nixon were president. They are the same people. The only people who have really changed are the democrats and progressives. It is not the R beside the name. This is the group of entitled american whites who think we need to go back to the good old days when you could say nigger, chink, spick, wetback, and all sorts of other racial slurs because that was what made america great, and not the high taxes on commerce and the rich that allowed us to do amazing things with this huge country.

    By that logic, Communists are also "very fine people" who deserve your respect too. :?:

    When you support trump and the fascist right who are punishing people for being black, GLBT, Hispanic, muslim, foreign, and women that is not just disagreeing with a person. - Tererun
    So there is no room for political discourse because you have already branded and shut the door with your hyperbole, simplification and over reaction. Luckily for the Democrats you do not represent the average sane left leaning person with well meaning good intentions.

    I eagerly awake your counterpoint to say "But my most reasonable Republican is _____," instead of your usual "B-b-but Democrats/libruls blah-blah-blah I got nothin' so I'm just yadda-yadda-yadda," but I'm not seeing it.

    Try again. :brood:

    Yes, there is no room for harassment, harm, and abuse in political discourse. You are supporting those things.

    probably best to clarify if one means office-holders or any self-professed Republican.

    Paul Ryan is sharp as hell and young enough to get back in the game in a few years.

    So children in detention centers isn't cruelty, it's?
    The fundie Christian attack on women's reproductive freedom isn't cruelty, it's?
    The fundie Christian race to find way to exclude LGBT people from all public life isn't cruelty, it's?
    :chris:

    I'm open to logically framed arguments for why these are good and/or necessary things, and not at all cruel and petty.

    All I've heard from Trump and Trumpers is essentially "cuz fuck 'em! :nyer:",.

    I don't hate communists as people, I just dislike their political beliefs.
