Great. Civil war breaks out. And you'll be on the front lines, I suppose.

You don't really get the overall point here. You keep arguing for the 2nd Amendment. If you cherish it, then don't give the executive branch the power to take it away when he or she wants without going through Congress.

Trump fans don't understand that they aren't doing anything for Trump personally or putting some kind of one-time law on the books. It's about increasing the power of the presidency for the next president and beyond. Trump is temporary, the powers of the President are permanent.

McConnell has returned to his shell to stay as far away from Trump’s mess as possible. Taking care of himself is his #1 priority. Then the GOP. Then America.

And if there’s no legislation for a Democrats, then none for Republicans. And don’t gloat about mutually assured destruction unless you’re already a loser with nothing more to lose.

lincolnman: if "socialism" is going to be weaponized as a label for Democrats, "fascism" must be used in the same way against Republicans

Yep. That's how I've framed it: the socialists vs. the fascists. But we really can't compete with them since so much of their news comes from one source. If that one source writes a script about socialism, that's what all the Repubs will say simultaneously. The center and left-leaning news outlets are too many in number to have a following that can make something like that happen on our end.

Deadforgood: I remember back in 2015/16 when Bernie was labeled a socialist because of his views on health care.

SOCIALIST! is what the GOP says to get their base to ignore the message. Sanders was the perfect example of that. He spent day and night talking about working class issues like the health insurance crisis, stagnant wages, the wealth divide, etc. But three words into his message and Repubs had their fingers in their ears running away from the socialist who would destroy the country.

When Trump fans start talking about working class issues I keep telling them that they could be writing for Bernie's website. The difference is that Bernie isn't a proven scammer, a known liar, or a racist. Seems like the better choice when you SOCIALIST! SOCIALIST! SOCIALIST! oh nevermind they've already stopped listening.

Deadforgood: Unfortunately for you, the millennials swing left and soon will start replacing the boomers. Hope for your sake you don't have too much time left on your clock because you're going to have to live with a liberal future, for better or worse.

Enter voter suppression and gerrymandering. It's their plan for a future with a minority GOP controlling the majority of the government.

fxgai: Not an American voter here, but it's pretty clear from earning reports that companies have made a lot of extra profits since the big corporate tax cuts were enacted last year. Those profits don't go under the pillow case, but back into other investments. Investments are what result in people getting hired to new jobs and more economic growth.

That's the story for giving the tax cuts.

The reality is that a vast, vast majority of the money being brought back is to do stock buybacks to inflate the stock price for the company managers and investors. In reality, 62% of Americans didn't see any increase in income last year despite the economic growth, and nearly all new wealth created in the US goes to the top 10-20%.

Sure, in the short-term the budget deficit is increased, but if you achieve higher economic growth over the longer-term

Google "The Kansas Experiment." Zero of the promised benefits materialized, and Kansas actually did worse than surrounding states economically.

Tax cuts are used by the Right in the US to intentionally create deficits. Then when the red ink starts spilling they tell us we have to cut social services to balance the books. That's the long and the short of it.

Let's see how the Democrats handle VA. My guess is those three will be gone.

Steve King of the GOP defends white supremacists and he gets....his committees taken away. Slap on the wrist.

Lets see how it plays out and how each party handles it.

The word "socialist" is everywhere on FoxNews.com. In the articles, and half the comment section is mostly cut and paste about socialism. That's the power of the bubble and a single news source that dominates.

The GOP runs on fear. Fear creates reliable voters. Socialism is good since they know their uneducated base won't understand nuanced differences.

But....that being said...I still think it will be about immigrants. The draw is just too easy for the GOP. Socialism calls will die down and they will go back to creating fear of Latinos.

Bass: Looking at the recent polls more and more people seem open to it.

Awesome. Meaningless, but awesome.

Bass: Here is the kicker, even in that case it would never work for the Democrats, even in a national emergency, there is No way on God’s green earth would you ever be able to take guns away, if Democrats even attempted that, we would have 1861 all over again

How badly do you want your wall? Bad enough to deliver gun control authority to a Democratic President? Fair trade to me.

Its just a difference of opinion of the poll numbers. I think Obama finished with a 60% approval rating, which Dems were happy with. Trump is in the low 40s and his base is happy with that.

Different expectations is all.

No wall for you. You dont have the leverage or the popular support.

Just declare a national emergency. We will trade the wall for increased power of the executive branch that can be used in the future by Dems for healthcare and gun control. That's about it.

Trump has accomplished very little except for continuing Obama’s economic expansion (https://goo.gl/images/W3Uakt).

No replacement to the Paris accords, no Middle East plan, North Korea expanding their nuclear capabilities, no dent in the trade deficit with China, more illegals coming in, massive deficit spending, etc.

He will come and go and any of his smaller executive policies will be reversed. Without any signature wins he will mostly be remember for being a massive waste of time and a reaffirmation of the GOP’s racist undertones.

Bass:. Yes, we voted for him and I don’t blame him at all for it.

So you voting for a man who hires illegals, imports foreign workers, ships manufacturing jobs overseas, and used chain migration to bring in his wife's family.

I guess those aren't really important issues for you.

That's the key....become so rich that you can claim you don't know how anything operates under you. The buck stops....before it reaches the boss.

Now if you were a Mom and Pop doing this they'd have the book thrown at them.

The fact is Trump fans voted for a man who hires illegals, imports foreign workers, ships manufacturing jobs overseas, and used chain migration to bring in his wife's family.

And these things don't dent their support for Trump one bit.

Hypocrites.

Trump has always hired illegals. Just look at the construction of Trump Tower.

To be fair he doesn’t always do it illegally, at his resorts he legally imports cheaper foreign workers and sends his manufacturing to the Chinese who are killing us on the trade deficit. Theres nothing illegal about doing that.

In fact, his fans would probably tell us that Trump is a smart man for hiring cheaper foreigners over Americans and it doesn’t dent their support for him one bit,

Plasticmonkey: The party should demonstrate constructive toughness without being rude and obnoxious.

Agreed. The Dems always seem to find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

I like the idea of increasing spending on border security without the wall. We flip the script, take the lead on security, and leave Trump without a wall.

Then he can tell his base he succeeded in securing the border (who cares about a wall?} and everyone wins.

Bass: Who cares what someone in Maine thinks? They don’t have to deal with the influx of illegals coming their way or the cartels or drugs?

Every member of the House, both red and blue, that are on the border are against the wall. And they ran in the recent election by campaigning against it.

In Arizona we elected a Senator who was against the wall. And a Democrat. The Senators from New Mexico and California are against it and the two clowns in Texas were against it before they were for it.

You’re from Orange County where it’s now all blue, so you are actually the outlier. Maybe you’ve been away for too long to really understand what it’s like nowadays.

Just another lie by the GOP.
