Part of the problem right there; your fellows citizens are your enemies, not opponents.
“Part of the problem right there; your fellows citizens are your enemies, not opponents.” That IS the problem. The not-too-bright Trumptards, including Donald Dumbass Jr, don’t see anything wrong with colluding with Russia (normally called “treason”) to prevent Clinton from winning.
It was expressed perfectly by the shrub. “You either stand with us, or you stand with the terrorists!” And to the modern G.O.P., the Democrats are the terrorists, since they are the only thing standing in the G.O.P.’s way of establishing a Fascist State under Dictator Donnie!
Cooperation is grounds for impeachment, get on it!
Politics has always been politics. However, something really changed under the “leadership” of Mitch. Now working with other people is considered wrong and being weak.
and after you treated him so well
Say it ain’t so!!
The problem with the “us vs. them” mentality is what happens when you become “them”.
Says a little something about the modern GOP, that dog whistles, overt racism, foreign hackers and Russian interference, violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause, and nepotism – none of that gets them excited to more than token “some of us don’t really support that and it didn’t happen anyhow”, if they even bothered with that!
But suggestions of cooperation with DEMOCRATS, and that gets them mad!
Yep, tells you all you need to know.
Question: Who is the sleaziest…..tRump or Mitch the son-of-a- *itch?
To Republicans Russians and Racists are okay. But cooperate with the Democrats to help the American people and you are a traitor. That makes sense, I have seen how the Republicans have acted for the last 8 years. They don’t know how to agree in a bi-partisan way.
That is the biggest problem with the self-centered, short-sighted, and myopic right wing mindset. They view Americans with differing points of view as “the enemy” rather than part of the ‘mixing bowl’ that has historically made America great. Congress fails routinely under right wing control because the word “compromise” is never tolerated by them.
