On not being liked by conservatives on this board,
Liberals have tried for too damned long to be liked by everyone. I watched eight years of Obama's presidency - where the sole Republican theme was to detest him and everything he did - refusing very possible compromise.
Conservatives bred the contempt that prevails throughout this country. Trump feeds into it every day. Melania's "I really don't care. Do you?" jacket is exactly the way Trump has treated every bit of America that did not vote for him. They don't give a thought to anything that is important to us. In fact, they hate us - and it is apparent in this board that with few exceptions (IdaBuff - you are playing with fire by being thoughtful) that they have taken to heart the art of thrir fearless leader - attack everyone that has a different view from them.
I'm pretty proud of not bring liked by today's conservatives. I stand proud of leaders like Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ronald Reagan (there is no room for him in today's Republican Party), John Hickenlooper, Pope Francis, and Phil Yancy.
Trumpians have all become the Javerts of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. They do not serve the lord. They do not serve their common man. They serve only their masters - without the least bit of doubt - no matter how unrighteous and self serving the master has become.
