    Re: Republican-Conservative Catch All Thread

    as of the most recent gallup poll i could find (sept 3-15), trump is currently at 91% approval with republicans.

    maybe some of y'all non-trump republicans who don't like getting lumped in with the trump republicans should be concern trolling and having debates with the folks that drug the republican party into the ditch and are doing their damndest to pull the country along with it.

    The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

    Bazza was right.

    Apparently, it's OK to paint with a broad brush if enough people fit the profile the painter wants. Otherwise, don't profile anybody for anything. If you do, you're racist / sexist / Islamophobic / homophobic / ignorant / pick your own abhorrent adjective. Unless there are enough examples of the alternative. In which case, it's a totally understandable oversight. Not enough harm = no foul...so long, of course, as you agree with me.

    so this is actually a festivus thread?

    bamamc1 posted about Republicans. He said exactly nothing about Donald Trump, Trump's honesty or anything other than Republican opinions.

    In the recent past, I have been called out (with some justification) for painting all Democrats with the Occasio-Cortez / Talib / Omar brush. I was quickly reminded that they don't represent all Dems, and told that the only reason I thought that was FoxNews' over-coverage of their off-the-wall positions. But my experience is that Republicans are repeatedly painted with the Trump brush, with no consequences whatsoever for the over-broad characterization.

    I'm a lifelong Republican, but I've never been a defender of Donald Trump. Not here, not anywhere. Didn't vote for him or Hillary. Wrote in Nick Saban. Have said that repeatedly in numerous threads. Yet our blue posters often lump me in with the crazies.

    This is what is keeping us from having true debate. "If you don't agree with me, you're with the most extreme of the other side, and don't deserve even a modicum of respect." And that's what's happened here.

    bamamc1 asks for Republican ideas, and immediately gets accused of believing Donald Trump is honest. How you go from Point A to Point B is beyond me.
    I mean, Trump is the head of the Republican party and holds almost universal approval among admitted Republicans. The same relationship does not hold true with AOC and the Democrats, so that's a silly comparison.

    If you're an anti-Trump Republican, you're in the minority. Which is fine, of course, but it does not follow that this should be assumed, so I think your complaint rings a bit hollow.

    As usual, cbi is the only one posting conservative discussion points while everyone else is too busy clutching pearls about the social injustice of belonging to a party led by a madman. If Trump does not represent your conservative values, I think that's what this thread is actually about.

    So 4Q BC posts a well reasoned (IMO) and thoughtful post.

    The dim's take this from it.....

    italics are mine

    that's a silly comparison---your opinion is stupid
    I think your complaint rings a bit hollow--your'e not genuine
    I think that's what this thread is actually about--your'e an idiot for not seeing things my way

    So tell me again how this board isn't a libtard echo chamber.....

    Let's look at the contrast between what we both posted.

    I mentioned someone was fussing about hypocrisy, and I was specific in exactly what I was talking about (the deficit) when I pointed out what I thought was hypocritical. (as an aside, I'll mention that hypocrisy was condemned in the Bible 23 times.)

    I thought you might address the specific example I brought up, or at least be specific about what you thought Dems were being hypocritical about, if you didn't want to defend the GOP position on the deficit.

    Instead, you fell back on the old "I'm rubber and you're glue, what you say bounces off me and sticks to you!"

    My opinion: My thought after reading your posts in this thread is you haven't come to grips with how the current form of the GOP is nothing like the traditional GOP you've identified with over the years. You haven't left the Republican party (yet) but the GOP has left people like you behind in the rear view mirror.

    You just can't bring yourself to vote Dem. I do thank you for having the integrity to not vote for Trump when he was running.

    You speak of hypocrisy, yet you begin by calling people dims and libtards then move on to crying about what you deem to be personal insults. Can you see a problem there?
