    This is exactly the kind of denial, or maybe just niavete, that's landed us in the position we're currently in. Liberty advocates really need to learn better.

    I've lost track of what all has gone on with the Keystone XL. If I understand this right, the whole thing has already been built and is already in use all the way from Alberta to Houston. And all that remains is building another proposed route that shortens the distance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keystone_Pipeline Honest question. What's the big deal either way? Seems to me that whether you agree with approving it or denying it, it's pretty much a nothingburger.

    Pretty much my POV- plus sanctioned even more to death, which is an act of war.

    Didn't start any new wars is a plus? Except he did expand and intensify the old wars, launching more drone strikes and dropping more bombs than before. So basically, instead of moving on to new and different killing fields he just killed more people within the already existing ones. Doesn't seem all that positive to me.

    Yep. This is where the action needs to happen. Everyone MUST keep up the pressure on State representatives to insist on election reforms. Obviously, last year was a joke election. Most states threw out their own rules and instituted a slipshod process, ripe for abuse. If the political pressure remains, there may be hope to insist on in-person election day only voting with precinct by precinct counts of paper ballots, and absentees for strict reasons and with safeguards. I can see Texas and PA both tightening their rules. Not sure about the others.

    Another big con.... Under Trump's watch, the Federal government deposited checks into people's bank accounts throughout the year. If that's not a republic-ending precedent, I don't know what is.

    I always counter that freedom is extremely popular for ourselves. It's the other guy that people want restricted. This is why the left/right boot march is so effective. They promise freedom for you and hardship on your enemies if you collectivize and give "our" side power.

    One of the pros is that, if Justin does want to reenter politics as a Republican again, he's in a uniquely great position as being totally untainted by Trumpian corruption. He brings credibility to the table that no other Republicans can in an era where their main challenge will be figuring out how to distance themselves from Trump.

    I'll take this seriously. Pros: No new wars. Dramatic cuts of regulations. Driving the left openly insane. Revealed the establishment playbook to a large audience. Cons: Fractured the liberty movement that was gaining ground. Got Republicans to embrace leftist protectionism. Didn't shut down this Coronavirus response nonsense - actually made it worse. SPENDING!! DEBT!!

    No. Trump was bad - very bad. But W got us even more entwined in the Middle East resulting in thousands of dead. For no good reason other than "protecting our interests", which didn't even do that since we're now a net exporter of oil, anyway. W also got us NCLB and Medicaid expansion. They both ran up the debt and violated liberties. At least on Trump's watch, we didn't get involved in additional wars and we reduced a ton of unnecessary regulations. Not enough, mind you, but still some. I'm not even sure how someone could make the argument that W was better than Trump. That must be some warped measuring stick.

    None of them rose anywhere close to the level of Bush's. But if you interpreted anything I said as support for Obama, you misread me. I will grant that Trump was probably less bad than any other president in a long time when it comes to foreign military intervention. That's probably the only issue I would say that for him about. And that's not nothing. But his downsides aren't the minor issues that a lot of his supporters make them out to be either.

    No he wasn't, for one reason, which is the Iraq War. I agree with Trump that there have been very few things any president has done in recent history that rival that war in how terrible they were. Nothing Trump did was as bad as that. However, nothing most other presidents did was as bad as that either. Trump's single worst policy was the lockdowns that he put the whole country in over this past year. Those weren't as bad as the Iraq War. But they were still worse than anything most other presidents have done. We still haven't seen the full cost of how devastating that mistake was. And no amount of excuse making about how he wavered over it and didn't really want to do it, or was helplessly misled by the bad people he surrounded himself with, or how it was really state governors who imposed the lockdowns at the state level and not an edict of the president, will relieve him of the responsibility that any honest appraisal of what happened will put on the shoulders of his administration acting under his leadership.

    I wouldn't count on that being the effect. It's very possible that a Trump party would draw more support from people who would otherwise vote Democrat than it would from people who would otherwise vote Republican. A lot of the things Trump did as president that Republicans liked the most were things he only did because he was playing ball with the party (i.e. tax cuts, deregulation, conservative judges, token commitment to pro-life/social conservatism, refraining from pushing the increases in entitlements/farm subsidies/ethanol mandates/single-payer-healthcare'etc., that he wanted). Without the entanglements he had with the GOP, I would expect him to enjoy his freedom to support the policies he wants to in those areas, which are in every case a lot more like Democrat polices than Republican ones. That's on top of the more Democrat-oriented aspects he never had to give up even when he was a Republican, such as his protectionism, and his Hollywood/NYC foul-mouthed sexually libertine moral decrepitude. And you can bet that once he breaks from the GOP and goes back on the offensive against it, he'll be welcomed right back into the fold of Oprah Winfrey and all the other media big-wigs whose memories don't go back any further than their last quarterly statements.

    Thats great. I hope whatever you two learned sticks forever. We're really struggling financially and of course we have other problems, but we're together, pretty happy and have faith that it will be OK.
    I forget where you went. Can you tell me about the place? I also wnt to know (if you want to tell me) where you took her on date night. On our date night we went out to dinner and had some horrible conch fritters. NEVER AGAIN on conch fritters. But then we went out to a bar on the beach, and took a moonlight walk. Wound up nekked making love on the beach and got caught by a couple walking by. Allin all it was a great trip. Our's was in Delray Beach Florida.

    I do not think your wife would have any problem finding a nursing job up here. My sister-in-law is going back to school just so she can become a nurse and she plans on moving here from Florida, that was the reason for her career change. They have visiting nurses. There are lots of good hospitals like Dartmouth Hitchcock.
