    So what have Republicans gained by not reaching across the aisle?

    Tax cuts?
    Balanced Budget?
    Their Healthcare Plan?
    A Wall?

    I would think people who don’t know that the proper word is “weakens” are the ones who are weakening the Party.

    Do you really think working with the democrats they would agree to tax cuts to further Trump's agenda? To reach a budget that advances Trump's plans? Agree to Trump's new healthcare at the loss of their own? Agree to a wall they've spent the past 20 years blocking?

    Then you are even dumber than I imagined.

    Did you see the democrats reach across any aisles when they rammed Obamacare down our throats without a single republican? Were the democrats reaching across the aisle when they boycotted Trump's SOTU address and sat there arms folded over EVERY agenda no matter how much in the interest of our economy, military and safety? Where were the democrats reaching across the aisle when a bunch of them didn't even show up for the inauguration?

    When a democrats says they want the GOP to reach across the aisle, it is only so that the GOP can meet them in their demands, nothing less. Democrats never reach across the aisle for anything.

    Yes I do

    In the last balanced budget debate, Democrats offered up $3 in spending cuts for every $1 in tax increases...Republicans refused
    It was Republicans who walked away from the table in the healthcare debate
    During Stimulus in 2009, Republicans demanded tax cuts as a major part of the package and state control........then they refused to vote for it

    Many of us have been wondering what it's going to take to get the ends of the spectrum to calm down the madness.

    I have to admit - I allowed myself to wonder today, after the shooting at the softball field, that maybe this could be a turning point.

    Well, that was silly of me. From USMB to Twitter, nothing has changed.

    It is the Elites that are brainwashing the ones that doesn't keep up with politics. They receives their information from what they heard from off the television. Most of them are mentally unstable. The Elites knows that , and use it towards their own advantages. It is instilled in their minds that the President is bad through their fake propaganda tactics. And so there is no way to wash this images that they had painted in their heads about the President. They knows that the first impressions sticks the hardest; especially people that cannot rationalize or reason with others. They are too stiff-neck, inflexible.The Elites owns or control the majority of the MSM and online discussion boards. They uses these media outlets to push their propaganda out there, since the majority are so gullible and trust in them as reliable sources, without questioning or fact-checking them.

    A good start would be to accept Trump as POTUS because he was voted to be POTUS. Deal with it. Give him a fucking chance. Just like we gave Obama TWO chances via 8 years. Jeez. Stop seeing political party and see the bigger picture.
    Make america great again. Stop the infighting. Protect ourselves from enemies that want us dead. Look out for our own. Stop being the world police. Love each other best we can AS americans.

    But the hate is too strong and the media loves to stir the shit pot as much as they can and loonies go with the flow instead of thinking for themselves.
