    By EVERY economic metric, the economy is better under Trump. Your loyalty, of course, is NOT to your fellow American but to the Democratic Party. That's why you're on here shilling for the DNC.

    Why do you love the Democratic Party more than average Americans?

    For 10s of milllions of people, the economy is NOT better. Yes, we did get pittance increases in SSI but our Medicare Part B went through the roof. And the Insurance companies call our every day age related problems as prior conditions. This means that the 20 bucks raise we got we lost many times that due to health care.

    And don't forget the increase is cost of living dwarfed that 20 bucks again. A small group did do better but not the average American. And it's not a Rep V Dem thing like you hate spreaders try and do. It's just the way it is. And we need to address the condition and come up with some kind of solution. Instead, we have your "We are all doing good" people shouting down any good constructive discussion. Or there is the other side "We are all Screwed".

    To condemn what we are doing does NOT necessarily mean you support the Democrats. The odd thing about your position is for the most part Trump is simply the next in line doing the exact same things as those who came before him.

    They each find a position or two to try and set themselves apart and to divide the people with but they really do little to nothing about those things because the next politician will need those things to still be around to run on.

    Show me where I was spreading hate.

    The economy is better.

    I'm all for reducing costs and making our lives better. Unfortunately, much of the left is focused on improving the lives of foreigners that want to live here even to the detriment of Americans like you and I.

    If the Democrats would get on board, they and Trump could pass legislation to significantly improve our lives. Unfortunately, the Democratic Party's singular focus is on their own wealth and power and on removing Trump to advance the DNC, rather than advancing you and I.

    Trump had the House and Senate and did absolutely nothing about the employers drawing illegals here to work. Nothing.

    Let's do some simple math. There are 10 cookies and a Corporate leader, a Rightwinger and a Leftwinger (let's not use party names). The Corporate Leader eats 9 of the cookies. Then he whispers to the rightwinger, "You have better watch out, that leftwing is trying to take your cookie".

    But the average is 10 cookies for an average of 3 people. Then we up it to 11 cookies but the Corporate Leader still eats 10 cookies leaving the one cookie. There still ends up for a battle for that one remaining cookie. But the books say that there was a 10% increase so everyone is doing much, much better. This isn't rocket science. It's simple math. The only one that really did better was the one that ate the 10 cookies. Of course, he then spent 2 of those 10 cookies making everyone believe the system works.

    Now, let's try something else. We have a dollar. We want to fairly divvy it up. Of course we got that dollar from everyone's pocket. If we divvy it up fairly, we still have a dollar to divvy.; But we decide that we need to raise the amount that one group gets but we try and convince everyone that we will still be using that same dollar. Sounds fair so far, right? Then we lower the others taxes so that they should be able to have a bigger piece of that dollar. But in background, we raise what it costs to live to get not only what we lowered their taxes but let's make a nice profit. And somehow we still screw the pooch. Remember, there is still only one dollar.

    Then when we realize that that one Dollar can't be divvied up like that, what do we do? We sneak into our childrens bedroom in the dead of the night and raid their piggy bank for the funds for them to have a better life later.

    Does that about sum things up?

    I know nothing I say will bring you down from the tree you are in

    There is no evidence that the russians did ANYTHING of value to help trump beat hillary

    She was damaged by her own corrupt past

    And by her unlikable personality and poor performance as a candidate

    The joke is that yes the russians played a dirty trick on hillary by stealing her GPS so that she could not find the state of Wisconsin during the campaign

    Its a fantasy that many liberals have been brainwashed with

    They are a little vague about how it happened

    But they are sure it did
