If you don't view the media as agenda driven, then....I understand why you think the way you do. One of the driving components that keep it going. Congrats.
"The media", including the internet, anymore is just another industry, another business. And, as such, it's primary agenda is to make lots and lots of money.

Corporate profits were up 57%. When Obama left office the 1% owned more of America than ever before. Is that the profile of a socialist?

Obama sought social justice--a level playing field. Obama set the gold standard for ethics and moral integrity. No pornstars payoffs. No adultery. Just one wife. Transparency of his finances. No fraud lawsuits. No discrimination charges. No payouts. No connections to Russia. No indictments of his staff.
They are like small children that hear the adults say a dirty word. They are not exactly sure what it means, they just know it's a "bad word."

Other than the Affordable Healthcare Act (which wasnít completely socialist) can you name another socialist policy of Obama?

The issue (in this case) is not political right or wrong. The issue is standing firmly by our ethics, principles and dictates of conscience.

I am always shocked when people claim to be one thing and display the opposite.
Like the Democratic Party ?

Once in a while one will come out on that account with reasonable grammar and normal phraseology that make sense. Obviously, those are the few some aid wrote for him.

They are the window to his soul and his mind, such as it is.
Nah, it's really just a bad habit. I see it everywhere. Including here on DtT. And most here claim to be grown-ups. Lol

The reason we have the Republican President now is that he knew exactly what the less informed wanted to hear and told them that. And even though it was incorrect (being very polite), they swallowed it whole.
Nope. It's because we work our asses off, and Hillary wants to give it all to someone who doesn't. THAT is why I voted against her in a nutshell. Free ice cream isn't free. Someone pays, and it ain't the wealthy, and it certainly ain't the poor.

In Pew Research Center surveys conducted in 2017, 37% of registered voters identified as independents, 33% as Democrats and 26% as Republicans. When the partisan leanings of independents are taken into account, 50% either identify as Democrats or lean Democratic; 42% identify as Republicans or lean Republican.
Is this ginormous, absurd stereotyping some new religious CULT I don't know about??

In another thread we are told that Democrats never served in the military. IN fact we were informed that Irrespective of Pearl Harbor, no liberal would have fought in WWII if Hitler had not double-crossed Stalin.
AND......
Liberals not only refused to defend the country against Communism throughout the Cold War, they worked to bring defeat to their own country during the Vietnam War.


This the TEAM you support and admire. Congrats.

His tweets, for the most part, are worthless but that is not the same thing as meaningless
Haha, they are meaningless to me!
And now you know what is really hurting America. Trump's tweets? No, it's Internet addicted tweet happy, think the world goes round, or stops over this?! Good God! If we can start wars over the Internet, we're all in peril.
