Donna. I despise Trump. I think he's despicable.
Our recent interactions here...all of us...is beginning to convince me that there's a difference between Dems and GOPs much more profound than the issues we think differently about.
I actually was criticizing KBJ with the "rightly so" comment. I was showing that, in addition to refusing to answer a hypothetical question, "and rightly so," she was even refusing to respond to a question that could indicate a piece of her judicial philosophy that will impact on her decisions on gender cases.
More and more all the time, I'm disturbed by progressives' Good German-ism, always rubber stamping Blue MAGA leadership, and, more than that, praising it.
As I've said before, the primary reason I'm happy to be a GOP is that the GOP is where there's openness and vigorous conversion, even easy disagreement...as a matter of course.
There's clearly a difference between the political culture that you're a part of and mine. I'll take the energy and the openness every day of the week.
Back in the day, Dems were vigorous. Alive. Now? You're brain dead, as far as I can tell.

As you know, I don't agree with the Dems all the time, which I openly discuss here as well as on Facebook. In fact I'm livid at the Dems and their flagship cable station MSNBC not only for their stance on transwomen athletes, but their refusal to air the opposing viewpoint on that issue, even from within the party. I also don't support affirmative action, and I've strongly opposed foreign policy actions of both parties in most past military actions to the point that I've taken part in antiwar protests. In fact I only recently registered Democrat (in 2020).
I'm not a jersey wearer. I don't base my political opinions on what the loudest voices in the Democratic Party and the trans community preach.

Of those here, you're the one progressive who could most easily handle the openness, freedom and dynamism that is characteristic of life among GOPs.
