4) Tax cuts pay for themselves

5) A ridiculous, boated defense budget makes the USA's dick look bigger for some reason

There really isn't a big distinction between republicans and conservative independents is my point. Republicans in office declare something and everyone besides liberals believes them.

Fox News plays a huge role in this. They push the republican agenda and their simple minded independent conservative audience eats up every word.

I think Hillary has lied about many things. She isn't my first choice, but she is 10x better than Trump.

1. Infrastructure investment is a boondoggle! So lets let it fall apart.
2. Investing in science is bad
3. Educating our youth is bad
4. Paying taxes for anything outside of defense is bad
5. Regulating food safety standards, clean air and water is bad.

I shit you not...These people are insane.

Hillary has never lied, and I resent you suggesting that she has! She was either misquoted, had a memory lapse, did not understand the question, really meant something else and so on and so forth.

The Republicans suggesting she is not honest is nothing less than deplorable!

Trumps lied more and he's only been in politics for a minute.

You'd defend a piece of shit if the GOP nominated it

Where ever I go, there I am.
1) increasing taxes lowers the debt
2) government caused problems can be fixed by more government
3) government creates jobs
4) welfare and unemployment stimulate the economy
5) there's no voter fraud, unless they lose
6) blm isn't a racist movement

on and on and on

It's gotten to the point that it's ok for a leftist to attack people for not agreeing with them.

ironic since Brazil just got fired for sending hillary questions, again, proving that the debates are rigged, like we told you they are.

1) Climate changes. Man has nothing to do with that.

2) If you can't require voter ID, you can't ensure against fraud.

3) Reagan's tax cuts created 30 years of economic prosperity.

4) Reagan's tax cuts doubled federal tax revenues.

5) Peace and stability through strength.

Unlike you, no one had to tell me these things. I have brain and I am a smart person. You never present any credible arguments to refute any of these things, it's always junk you've copied and pasted from your typical left-wing blogs and such. You are what is known as a "quisling" ...go look it up, you could stand to expand your vocabulary.

The un-American attitude among the republicans is rather astounding. But it is evident throughout our history, books noted at bottom cover the topic well, but for republicans, books should be banned if they don't coincide with their ideological training.

"I want to argue for something which is controversial, although I believe that it is also intuitive and commonsensical. My claim is this: Oliver [ average Trump supporter ] believes what he does because that is the kind of thinker he is or, to put it more bluntly, because there is something wrong with how he thinks. The problem with conspiracy theorists is not, as the US legal scholar Cass Sunstein argues, that they have little relevant information. The key to what they end up believing is how they interpret and respond to the vast quantities of relevant information at their disposal. I want to suggest that this is fundamentally a question of the way they are. Oliver isn’t mad (or at least, he needn’t be). Nevertheless, his beliefs about 9/11 are the result of the peculiarities of his intellectual constitution – in a word, of his intellectual character."

"Liberals and progressives have been slow to realize that their preferred vocabulary has been hijacked and that when they respond to once - hallowed phrases they are responding to a ghost now animated by a new machine, The point is not a small one, for in any debate, especially one fought in the arena of public opinion, the battle is won not by knock - down arguments but by the party that succeeds in placing its own spin on the terms presiding over the discussion. That's what the conservatives in and out of Congress have managed to do with old war horses like "individual" and so long as they are allowed to get away with it, the opposition will spend its time insisting that it too is for the individual or for color-blindness or equal opportunity - and before we know it all the plovers will be dead and all the subcontractors will once again be white."

One of the primary similarities between wingers on both ends of the spectrum is that they are quick to believe and adopt simplistic, shallow, bumper sticker sloganeering that doesn't come close to a thorough examination of the issue.

They then defend and spin for those simplistic beliefs regardless of any and all contrary information, because they don't want to betray their "side", absolutely regardless of how much blatant intellectual dishonesty is required.

Both ends.

We don't believe republican politicians...we believe in facts and the truth.....

Climate change.....you guys were caught rigging the data...

voter fraud, we have the confessions of bob craemer and scott foval admitting to how they do it on a massive scale..on video

Tax cuts generate money....give tax money to politicians creates 20 trillion in debt

A defense budget keeps the bad guys in line...

moron.
