    I'm sorry to hear that. I've been married for almost 50 years to a very liberal woman, a Quaker, in fact. We both have backups, my son is very conservative, my daughter very liberal.and we've gotten along wonderfully, a loving supportive family. Politics is not the most important thing in life.

    I've gotten along just fine with conservatives. It's the Trump followers who have been an issue for me.

    Which is why he tried to have himself installed as an unelected autocrat?

    Trump is garbage. People actually think he’s for the constitution. Guy probably has never read it.

    Oh, there's no way in hell he's ever read it. I don't blame anyone who voted for him in the past as someone they thought of as the as the lesser of two evils, though, just people who continue to support him after the last election.

    Trump folks probably won’t like Trump as a person when up close….. I think they have seen the low that his opposition has went to deny him even a chance that we the voters gave him to do this country good… think what Trump could have done, whether you think it bad or good, if the opposition had not latched on him like a rabid dog, from the very first day… the country elected a president to bring change to the corruption in our government that we all seen, and the voting citizen was denied that outcome. Most are hoping the underdog would succeed, but the swamp runs deep… on both sides.

    Lol, Trump is corrupt to the core. He even makes other politicians look like innocent angels by comparison.

    It sucks. I'm trying to spend as much quality time with my dad, especially after his cancer diagnosis and him starting radiation, but all he wants to talk about when I visit are his Trumpist conspiracy theories. I don't argue with him about it, just try to change the subject, but he even started getting into Q stuff. My sister always had a hard time in my hometown as one of the only liberals, but after Trump? Constant threats and harassment, etc. Never had this problem with Reagan conservatives, Bush conservatives, etc.

    You are exactly right. The best comment I've seen today.

    I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. I don't defend any hurtful comments made by anyone, especially within families. We should be able to discuss our disagreements without anger.

    Well, that explains why you are one of the most reasonable conservatives on this board. Why? Because you are not living in an echo chamber.

    I'm happy to see the GOP trying to be more divorce. What are you liberals gonna do when the magical race card can't be played anymore? Given that your party's main power source derives from keeping people in line with racial tensions. What's gonna happen when you can't use the OLD WHITE MEN meme anymore? I'd be scared if i were you. Your party is gonna get STOMPED once you lose the power of minorities being your loyal pets

    Yeah the deranged narcissist psychopath has "political power". Isn't that as nauseating a statement on his sycophants and devout sheep as it gets? Yes I know you Trumpophants are going to pull a whataboutism on me. Sorry but I can't stand Biden either. I voted for him just to get that slimebag out of office. I would have voted for a rock if that worked just as well.

    I could never admit I voted for Biden. How could anyone vote to put our country in such bad shape? What a disaster!!!

    Cheap liberal talk at it's finest... If Trump is corrupt to the core, it was created by the liberals... Trump is just one man... imperfect like each and every one of us... But I see the left is becoming more corrupt in the last several years...and they just blatantly coming out in the open.... The left had better ""git er done"" by November... HOPEFULLY the Repub's will have cojanes to start their own reign of terror like the Demo's did. But I ain't holding my breath because politicin' is a dirty game, and there is a lot of dirty dealing behind the scenes by both party's that needs covered up... Remember the saying, "I trust a millionaire who became a politician before I trust a politician who became a millionaire.."

    His corruption started well before he entered politics. He's run several cons. He ran a corrupt "university," a corrupt "charity," etc. Quaint sayings doing make up for reality.

    Your misinformation doesn't make up for reality either. I'll take living a "Trump life" living in tall hotels and having a beautiful wife...over a cheap talking PF poster driving an '89 Toyota pickup with a burnt out headlight any day ... but the fact we keep bringing up a man who is not president tells me you are living in fear.

    You and some of the other posters have an unhealthy hate for one man.. When a poster wishes death on another person that to me crosses the line... but it seems the moderators deemed it OK.... so keep spewing your hatred.

    I have a six-figure job. So does my wife (as much as that is going to upset some Trump supporters). And although I don't have a car fancier than an Accord (nor do I want one), we're happy and satisfied, and we don't have to cheat anyone in order to make our living. I'll take an honest and generous living over your favorite conman's life any day. I don't think it is unhealthy to hate thieves. Hell, I'll go back to just barely scraping by if it means I can make an honest living if the only other option is to lie and cheat and swindle like Trump has. I wish you found thievery as offensive as you apparently find basic honest standards. I get mad when people steal. You get mad when people get mad that people steal. Really ****ed up. And I'd rather have a beautiful wife that I actually love and respect, like the one I have now, than one of Trump's trash "relationships."

    Seeing how Democrats behaved after 2016, particularly with the Russia collusion hoax and the vile performance during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, I don't understand why anyone would ever consider voting for a Democrat.

    For all of their antics, the GOP proved they could outdo any and all Dem antics in 2020/21.

    Trump is a crook. Trump cheats the IRS. Trump runs a con.
    Biden is a crook. Biden cheats the IRS. Biden runs a con.
    But neither has ever had a criminal trial or served time.

    And the most prominent was an anti-Trumper. Are you asserting those who support the policies that Trump supported should not vote for candidates that support those same policies because Trump does? I have no idea how much or how many of these candidates won BECAUSE of Trump himself I have no reason not to believe the main reason was the policies.

    Well with Trump it has not been without the greatest of efforts over 6 years to get him charged with a crime. For Biden it just began last year and we certainly have more evidence of one than we ever had with Trump.
