      So….Socialism. Whos gonna pay for it?

      3rd world country???… Thats what YOU want. You buy into George (read asshole) Soros one world government. European style government. No! that’s why we left England to be a sovereign nation here in North America.
      What you fail to understand, If your bitch Hillary got into office, ther would be dead bodies in the streets of every neighborhood in the USA, The smell of rotting flesh would be everywhere. That was guaranteed!
      progress doesn’t always mean moving forward in a positive direction. An individual or a group of individual’s can “progress” in the wrong direction. I am a registered Democrat but my party has disappointed me and embarrassed me in the last decade or two. You wanted another politician in office. We got a businessman instead who, like myself, knows that political correctness is bullshit!

        Both sides need to turn your brain on. It’s really not about parties. Both sides have done good and bad… It’s your blind alegence to one side or the other that has reversed the progress of the US into the great country it was becoming. Think critically people don’t excuse shit behavior on behalf of your party. Don’t have party at all Vote and speek with your brain ..
