I can't even really expand on the above without risking 20 posts after this one ****ting on me for ****ting on John McCain, which in itself explains the whole John McCain legacy.
I was curious what Inso0's take on McCain was back when he ran, and yeah, he was not a McCain lover then

He's NOT a real conservative, but he also doesnt want to bankrupt the country by handing out "free" healthcare to everyone either. He has also said he'll push to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, and he won't bail on the war before he's finished reciting the inauguration oath like Clinton will.

McCain isnt perfect, but he's also not NEARLY as bad as Clinton. However, you also have to weigh in on the fact that he will have a completely useless democratic house/senate to work with. So they'll probably just make him look worse by being the douchebags they've shown themselves to be.

I think we're screwed either way. McCain and more of the same, or Clinton and socialism.
But the take on Hillary and walking away from the war and socialism goes to show that you don't let Conservatives telling you that your candidates are Socialists have any impact. They will do that no matter who is nominated.

Nice pull. Really shows how uneducated and ill informed ins0 was, is and will continue to be.

I love anyone who thinks healthcare for all would bankrupt the country. Even Forest Gump has stronger analysis than that.

Healthcare would bankrupt us but spending gobs of money on endless wars wont. Which would save more lives.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

the president is angry fox news isn't on his side enough.

Nobody bats an eye. The **** we've normalized.

And also so much for McCain once being Lindsey Graham's best friend, but it makes sense, Lindsey isn't gonna be pals with a guy so weak he's dead.

Conservatives, most likely: "actually this is proof that Fox News really is fair and balanced"

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I don't understand why posters are asserting that the socialist label being used by Republicans on whomever is the Democratic nominee, means that the issue need not be taken into account. Because some Democratic candidates would deny the label during the campaign and some would not. I am not saying it hurts or harms candidates to deny they are essentially Socialists. I don't know about that. I just can't abide by two plus twoers using flawed arguments.

Nah I just think Democrats are just horrible at delivering the message. They should be I am a capitalist that believes in Socialist policies like building roads ,bridges and healthcare for all. Plus point out Republicans have no issue with socialist policies like Medicare, Farm Subsidies, Oil Subsidies and the biggest one of all The Department of Defense

Because 99.95% of the time it is mislabeled and misapplied. So it is pointless, and it is funny.
