    Mark it down.

    And as the Country burns, the same vitriolic voices will scream "Jan 6th!!!"
    And many others may scream "Aug 8th!!"

    I know, I shouldn't joke about this.

    A shift has taken place in the mind of the average American, and it's a shift that I cannot reconcile...I find it demented:

    I am convinced, however baseless, that Gore won in 2000. I credit Gore for having bowed out graciously, like a gentleman. I wish that Trump had done the same - preserving, and leaving his dignity, intact.

    He did not.

    What I can't understand, however, are the false equivalents: what Hillary is said to have done in 2016 was wrong, and if there was any malfeasance on her part, it should be dealt with. Likewise, I don't care for the way in which Trump bowed out in 2020, and if there was any malfeasance on his part, it should be dealt with.

    There was a time in America that every American, in spite of their political affiliation, would hold every representative accountable for his or her actions. Yet in today's America, it's "what your representative is said to have done is worse than what my guy/gal did!!!"

    This is demented.

    How did we get here, and more importantly, does no one see the damage and the implications that this thinking has produced?

    Does this thinking serve the best interests of our Nation?

    Does this thinking promote unity within our communities, between neighbors?
    I couldn't clear that up for you, sorry. I'm just as baffled as you are.

    In regard to the discussion at hand, I was merely saying that I don't understand how people can stand behind DJT after the bullshit he pulled post 2020 election (and continues to this day). But, naturally, the loyalists have to refer back to Hillary in 2016 instead of dealing with the topic at hand. Deflection. It's a natural reaction and one that happens on the other side too, which plays into what you're talking about. "Your person is worse than mine." It has spread like a virus.

    Sure, more average Americans have gotten inebriated on politics in the last few years, people who would never utter much politically before. I'm included in that. Yet, I'm in favor of holding all these dirtbags in politics accountable of all their malfeasance. I agree, Hillary, DJT, and anyone else in Congress should be dealt with accordingly for any wrongdoing. We should all be in agreement on that. But, sadly we're not.

    I still maintain, however, that the majority of Americans are still able to hold civil discourse with regard to politics. It's a smaller, yet growing (unfortunately), percentage who take this shit to heart--as reflected in this forum. I haven't lost any family members over it yet, although I have an aunt who's become very tiresome with her B.S. Some of you guys would love her. LOL

    Don't think that I don't get into it with the Aug 6th chanters as well, for as soon as I counter them, the common retort is: "NDL, *you* damned liberals!!..."

    When Roe was overturned, there were calls from those on the Left for succession; usually that behavior is reserved for those on the far Right.

    Do you think this is going to end well?

    That's your problem right there. Don't try and understand. Just accept that we're all different and we're gonna see shit differently. I accept that you're gonna be anti Trump for the rest of your life. I'm gonna be pro.

    She conceded the next day. At the urging of many, yet she resisted. But I believe it was Obama who finally got through to her.

    I think him losing by the same electoral landslide that Hil lost is what sent poor trump over the edge

    Cracks me up. The only time in American history millions of people trust the government is when it comes to the former president.

    This notion that we should all be of one mind (anti) is ridiculous.

    It is amazing, isn't it?

    Facts and truth don't matter anymore, in this "my side is better than your side" paradigm.
