I'm tired of the same fights decade after decade, dragging along people who now prefer a dictator.

I've tried to step back and look at the world from a Republican's point of view, and I can't do it. I have too much compassion for other people, including minorities, immigrants, and the poor. I care too much about equality and fairness. I care too much about the environment. I care too much about the separation of church and state and a woman's right to choose.

Those on the right are too sinister, suspicious, and cruel for me, and they're only getting more brazen and more stubborn. They also make no sense. If they're really concerned about security, then why encourage all the guns and for mentally ill people to carry them, too? Look at the stinking stats! Toddlers shoot more people than Islamic extremists in our country. Does it make sense to ramp up dirty and deadly coal production when clean energy is now far more cost effective and could provide awesome jobs? Does it make sense to build a vastly expensive border wall when illegal immigration is at a 40-year low? If the Republicans despise abortion so much, does it make one bit of sense to be aiming to eliminate birth control?

So, back to I can't understand them whatsoever and they can't understand us (and if you talk with a Trumpist, they've bought into Scrotus's lies and use those as their facts and think we're all nuts or have been listening to Alex Jones or reading Breitbart), so one side or the other drags the other one along (GWB, Obama, tRump... back and forth the pendulum swings...), only this time it's much, much worse because this time they've presented us with a fascist who loves Putin and nuclear weapons and doesn't have a clue as to what he's even doing and possibly can't even read, so he signs executive orders without any knowledge of what he's doing. He's also ripping out everything that was just put in place to protect us from Wall Street and the big banks, and although we can project ahead and see the very likely fallout from that, his followers seem to be oblivious or in denial...
