Left vs. Right vs. Respect

Having been an Independent voter since 1980, I'm free to absorb facts without needing to twist or ignore them in support of my political religion.

For many reasons, Democratic Party Candidates often don't receive my support. However, I will say that after years of political observation the Dems, Greens, and Libertarians, generally, treat each other and the electorate with far greater respect than "Conservatives" treat one another.

Peruse the political topics, here, to find the most anger and disrespect is directed toward those who disagree with the Far-Right. Writers tending to be more liberal usually have more intelligent, thoughtful, replies to those with whom they disagree. The same is generally true for political candidates.

How can the GOP claim to care about the average citizen when offering Sara Palin and Dan Quayle as potential Commanders-In-Chief? Consider that Donnald Trump, who has no respect for anybody, sounds like some of our far-right writers.

In the big card game of life, I never thought I'd want LESS TRUMP!

One can't wondering if Palin is still around and would she consider running as Trump's running mate?

really? JFK didn't do any good? remember the Cuban missile crisis? LBJ didn't do any good? remember the civil rights act? Our most recent republican pres started a war that resulted in the destabilization of the middle east and the rise of ISIS. And the war was based on lies.

JFK kept us out of an all out nuclear war! plus he had an excellent sense of humor. Unlike republicans, who by the way were the ones that killed him. Duh!

Whtie trash? Shirley you jest. He was royalty plain and simple. And he was educated and funny, unlike yourself. BTW Clinton is out, didn't you get the memo? And so is Trump. See of you can guess who the real next POTUS is.

If one is a loudmouthed cowardly asshole, the obvious safe way to shoot off your mouth with impunity is here on the internet, where no one can pop you in the appropriate places when you deserve an ass-kicking.

You get ignorant briar hoppers on both sides of the aisle. This election seems to bringing out the worst examples.

Obama

I can't wait to see what else Obama will do, in the last days of his administration,to stick it to Trump. His expulsion of the Russian diplomats was sheer genius. Trump must be talking to himself at this point. Even republican liars are saying Putin hacked our election. And that idiot, Netenyahue, is a guy who still thinks the invasion of Iraq was the right thing to do. What does that tell you about his intellect?

The Open Bar is where people are free to post political stuff like this thread. If there were no Open Bar, it would clog up the regular forums and Comments sections.

Geez

Alan, you are making Trump supporters look pretty bad. First of all, JFK was more conservative in almost every way than either Eisenhower or Reagan. To say he never did anything good for the country is insane. He cut taxes, oversaw NASA from being a small outpost of the Air Force to an amazing source of American pride, and he started, before assassination and intense investigation of the operations of the FED and was the only well known national Democrat of his day to stand up to the KKK. And oh yeah, had the wisdom to not let the Bay of Pigs weaken his resolve on Russia. His only lingering mistake was the half-hearted war in Vietnam, which ultimately led to Richard Nixon's long term popularity. After all when the memory of Watergate faded, he was the one who got us to the moon and out of Vietnam.

Our country has an amazing way of knowing, collectively, who is the right man (and when that time comes, woman) for the job. Eisenhower (and Dulles) probably prevented WW3 with pure and wonderful diplomacy in 1953 and Reagan, well, he was Reagan. I think when people like you put party over even handed results oriented analysis it makes us all look bad. Behind the Tweets and crazy accusations from the directionless and leaderless opposition, Trump will likely turn into a center-right, mostly non-idealog "small l" liberal. Whether you call that Conservative, populist, or whatever is your deal. But painting all Democrats in history is just silly. Even FDR, a racist, probably fascist in his own right, socialist ideologue made lasting contributions to our Republic.
