    Guess who's calling Republican voters dumb - a national GOP committeeman from Arizona. I guess "dumb ***" is better than "deplorable". I have to remember that if I'm ever tempted to comment on Republican voters. After all, it was "dumb *** people" who voted for Trump and still support him in spite of all the dung he's flung around the past two years.

    So what is wrong with her. All that I could see was that she was <GASP!> bisexual and that she would not swear her oath on the Bible. If one has to be a Christian to be a Republican they are almost certainly dooming themselves as a part as the "none" vote gets stronger and stronger.

    Those drinking from the dumb trough must have been numerous enough so as to elect Nancy Pelosi as speaker again.

    How does one define a "RINO", though? Some would probably consider you one since you don't toe the evangelical line.

    How can someone be a Republican in name only if they are not a Republican in name at all?

    That's actually a good point.

    RINO or DINO , I suppose it comes down to comparing one's position and action with the respective party's Charter.

    That is an incredibly stupid & hostile statement.
    What he's done in the last 2 years wasn't knowable at the time of voting.

    Note:
    If this sounds harsh, it was by invitation.

    Anyone with half a brain would know putting a moron in office would produce moronic (dangerous) results. You're paid to support republicans, so your opinion doesn't really count.

    Does this mean that if you knew then what you know now you would have voted differently?

    Hard to say.
    Hillary looks good to you guys because she has no imperfections
    in her presidential record. Although, if we go back in time to her
    "co-presidency" (Bill's term, not mine), Hillarycare was a nasty
    affair which deserved its failure to be passed.
    The grass is always greener on the hopeful hypothetical side.
    But if I were to have changed my vote, it would be for Johnson.
    Better to have a johnson than a dick or a Bush in the White House.
    Note that Trump hasn't yet exhibited the worst of feared actions,
    eg, starting a war. There's still time...but for now his record is OK.
    - Halfway decent tax reform
    - Justice system reform in both courts & universities
    - Decent USSC justice confirmations, so perhaps a 3rd soon?
    - Eliminating the penalty for not being able to buy Obamacare.

    You do realize that one cannot go back in time to change one's vote, right?
    And also that one cannot know that Hillary would've been as great as you hope?

    Maybe you can’t. We up here have more advance technology than you primitives.

    If you remember, I tried to warn you about Trump.

    It was hostile, to be sure, but deliberately so using the language the a Republican used to attack Republicans. I note you did not mention who used that phrase first, just attacked me for using it to make a point about Hillary Clinton slur's consequences.

    Yeah.....it just isn't so useful down here.

    This illustrates the problems with most anti-Trumpers, ie, they know they don't like him.
    They have many reasons. Most of them are about personal traits, but few were about
    policy during the campaign. It's about hating him, & seeking out confirming insults.
    They focus upon this, but they seldom considered Hillary's record & propensity for war,
    big government, high taxes, & corruption. Instead, they imagine no problems if she
    were Prez. This is because she never wielded presidential power. It's a fantasy...a
    figment of their imaginations.

    The warnings were of the sky-is-falling variety.
    He's Hitler!
    He's a <nether region> grabber!
    His wife isn't a citizen! He bought her!
    He's a Russian plant!
    That sort of stuff ranges from vapid to irrelevant.
