    Yes, I'm not republican or democrat. Both sides do this. It's funny how democrats oppose war from republican presidents but are okay with the same wars under democrat presidents. It's a manipulating tactic by the elites. They know our tribal past and play us off against each other. Meanwhile the over all agenda marches forward.

    Left wing flap, then right wing; same bird.


    I'm against gun control from either party or anyone. The point of gun control in my opinion is to make people easier to control and ultimately to step on. But, timid souls(not cut out for politics) fear freedom(and are easily manipulated) so they vote it all away. They should have stayed home.

    Not really, most people oppose wars from all presidents but no president, except Trump, has gone as far as threatening to annihilate an entire country.

    His approach on North Korea appears to have worked so far.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Though I have watched over the years as the Dems have become much more radical. Especially California.

    Had Hillary won, then she would've been the only President to annihilate an entire country (Iran).
    Republicans & Democrats aren't that different.

    Killian Documents Controversy

    They used unauthenticated documents that ended up being forgeries. It was highly publicized, with explicit apologies from CBS and Rather, and various firings and resignations. They made a mistake; it happens, and the toll was taken.

    I am also not Republican or Democrat but seems there is enough problematic behavior to go around

    Fast and Furious under Obama comes to mind but that would hardly be the only
