    That's right, you read right - I'm a liberal, and I'm a Trump supporter. Confused? Don't be. I'm a classic liberal, from before the time when today's leftists turned "liberal" into a dirty word. I absolutely support same-sex marriage and gays in the military. I absolutely support universal background checks for firearms purchases. I absolutely understand why evolution is legitimate science and belongs in the classroom, and why creationism isn't and doesn't. I absolutely support the legalization of marijuana, even though I don't smoke it myself. And plenty more. My liberal bonafides are secure.

    So why do I support Trump? Because I love my country. Even though I dislike him personally (he's a bombastic loudmouth, a bully, has an incredibly thin skin, gets into ridiculous "twitter wars" over childish disagreements, etc etc etc), there's just no denying the great things he's done for America: The economy is booming, the stock market is booming, consumer confidence is booming. Taxes have been cut. Unemployment has hit record lows. 3 million new jobs in less than 18 months. ISIS is finally being destroyed (as opposed to the "leading from behind" BS from the previous administration.) N. Korea has released those three American hostages and has been brought to the negotiating table on the subject of nukes. And again, plenty more.

    Dislike the guy personally as much as you want. I dislike him too. No way in the world I'd ever wanna be his "buddy" or "go out for beers" with him. But if you deny he's doing very well as president, you're a freaking idiot.

    Welcome.
    As an Independent who supports Trump I can agree with a lot of the OP,
    Just be prepared to be labeled a racist, fascist, mysoginist, trumpanzee, wishing to destroy America by those claiming to be liberal here.

    Thanks petro. But no sweat, this ain't my first rodeo, LOL. I'm aware that those who hate Trump are uninterested in the truth.

    Well maybe you'll get to know me and discover there really ARE a few (admittedly VERY few) true classic liberals still around. Born in the 50's, grew up in the 60's, graduated high school in '73, and definitely liberal. But NOT a moron leftist/democrat/progressive. I despise Obama and love Trump.
