    That's your opinion, and you are entitled to it. I'm not surprised since you don't seem to think your man Trump ever made mistakes. Well, my opinion is different. I think Trump made mistakes with the agreement he negotiated with the Taliban. It was not done well. Biden, too, screwed up the implementation. So for me, they both are responsible for the disaster that resulted.

    Cool then why not divide the country in half, blue peps on one side and red peps on another. The only problem with that of course would be the blue peps would come slimming back to us to try and get more FREE stuff. It would be an interesting experiment as interesting as the American experiment has been for the past 150 or so years.

    I have never seen such a contrasting ideology and theology of what each sides idea of democracy actually is.

    We could do that. I think both sides would lose out economically in that, though. We are economically stronger together than we would be apart. We have more clout on the world stage because of that combined economic strength. So despite our political divisions, there is a strong money incentive for staying together. That's why, I think, very few voices are calling out for dividing the country up.

    Actually, I don't think that is the case. When you look at which states get more back from the federal government than they give to Washington, there are a lot of red states on that list, too.

    It's not just matters of opinion. It is also matters of fact. I have no problem with your opinions. I just don't know where they come from given that both of us lived through the 4 years of the Trump administration and my experience is so different than yours.

    What I know is from my own experiences during his administration. The stock market boomed. My retirement accounts doubled in his term. The jobless numbers where at historic lows. The military was rebuilt. The list goes on but what's the point when someone wants to rewrite history.

    I agree with you but it is not will but is tearing the country apart. But don't worry. War will destroy the country before that happens.

    Liberals don't like facts they like emotion and tears.

    I am wondering if/ when another war breaks out on our own soil this time what the woke liberals will do. Maybe rainbow fart each other to death. I never understood progressive liberals, they are the ones at most risk for the policies they support yet they stay on the democrat bandwagon like they are going to be their savior and protect them.
