    Once serious republicans could bitch and moan about the increasing deficits under democrat presidents....but under the Trump cult, that is no longer the case.

    Once serious republicans used to believe in smaller government, honest cabinet members, separation of governmental powers, the shrinking of the federal bureaucracy, accuracy of data, that Russia was our most formidable enemy......but under the Trump cult membership, that is no longer the case.

    Smarter republicans well knew that the issue about building a 2000 miles' border wall was a much better demagogue issue than an actual "emergency" need.......but under the Trump cult mentality, many republicans have actually started to believe the orange buffoon's rhetoric.

    ...and, once smarter republicans believed that every dollar allocated to our military was "money well spent"......and under the Trump cult mentality, the pilfering of billions from the Pentagon is a Pyrrhic "victory" for their beloved demagogue.......without realizing that future budgetary allocations for the Pentagon will have to consider that those billions were NOT really a necessity for the military.

    Go figure.......

    Its a simple matter of Globalist Republicans or Nationalist/Populist Republicans. Is the US middle class their chattel to be abused, underpaid, and underrepresented politically, while Wall Street gets tax breaks to move factories overseas and gets outrageously wealthy? There are globalist democrats too, except their prey are the poor urban dwellers in their urban plantations.

    I remember when lolberals were:

    • Fervently in favor of all free speech
    • Fervently anti-war
    • Deeply mistrusting of the establishment
    • Tolerant of others' POV
    • Peaceful
    Those days are LONG gone.

    liberals are those things now, just the "establishment" is the plutocratic oligarchy.
    Republican favorability down, while democrats holding steady.
