    I'm not suggesting any such thing. There would be no reason to, given that the political power they wield is far out of proportion to their numbers, and has a lot more with their influence in the media, and with their willingness to bring legal actions that in a sane court system would be summarily dismissed.

    Now how about answering the question?

    I find it hilarious that Trump supports would criticize anyone for bringing up law suits ... given the hundreds that Trump has filed.
    And they have had some success in the courts after years of failures because they didn't give up and spent thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars to get their voices heard. You never had to go through that because your sexual persuasion was ALWAYS protected.

    I didn't respond to your demand that I name a theocratic Senator and prove that he intends to turn America into a theocracy.
    My response was to the second part of your post because it sounded homophobic.
    You will probably say that you intended no such thing and that the fault is in the way I interpreted it.

    I don't know if that's entirely true.

    I was so dumbfounded by the election of Trump, that anyone could possibly vote for someone that to me seemed like a complete fraud and buffoon, that it actually prompted me to try and understand where Trump supporters were coming from.

    There aren’t very many “thinking” people. After all, Obama won two terms.

    And that's what I criticize. One side has to have more responsibility than the other. Even though it's true that both sides have examples of irresponsible behavior, it's statistically impossible that they cancel out. So it's not possible to say that they both have "the same level of responsibility"

    They are real concerns to you, because the were about a D.
    Just like the D's are real concerned because tRUMP is a R.
    No difference, just the other side of the coin. Odd you don't see it.

    Funny how on another thread a right winger (who claims to be a moderate) projects his disdain for homosexuals by attributing homophobia to patriots rather than to fellow righties.

    The problem is the garbage we are left to vote for. The last election was a perfect example...two garbage candidates. Trump and Clinton were the best we as a country could come up with? Really?

    I don't agree. I believe the usual partisan divide was exacerbated by the election of OBama and the republican party becoming the "party of no". And of course Trump's campaign and subsequent win, has done nothing but add fuel to the fire.

    I am not attempting to absolve democrats from responsibility in this regard, merely that, imho, they are less responsible. Not that it changes the actual situation.

    There were other choices. Those are the two "the people" wanted.

    Oh I know. I voted for one of the “other choices”.

    Had they not shoved hilary down American voters throats, they'd have the WH and we'd not have the greatest liar and divider in the WH.

    Well bully for you. Of course what the hell any of that has to do with anything I ever said will forever remain a mystery.
    the courts have become increasingly infested with jurists who care nothing for justice.
    Indeed, it would hardly behoove you to respond to a nonexistent demand; and neither would I expect you to respond to a challenge issued to a third party.

    Your repeated evasion of the question directed at you is another matter.
    Yeah, well seeing I find the pejorative utterly nonsensical...
    ...I wouldn't bother.
    Indeed it is. You somehow imagined I was talking about their voting habits, as a diversion from the question you've been dodging from the start.

    If you think Bernie could have won, you're sadly mistaken. He had his base, but it was just a youth vote that doesn't vote, but they sure do love them sum free socialist stuff.

    Hillary was the best of a bunch of idiots, and she lost despite trying to paint Trump to be a crazy wild man who couldn't wait to get his hands on the nuclear codes. Now we know differently, so 2020 is going to be a cake walk.

    Sorry, but that's just the way the little ball bounces.

    It is cowardly to edit other people's posts in the way you just did.

    No one ran. Her and Bernie were the only 2 options, while the R's had 16 options. And tRUMP rose to the cream of that crap, er crop.

    No it isn't; and if you don't like it, do feel free to go jump in the lake of fire.

    Yes, it is. Editing out portions of other people's posts is a cowardly act.
