Until Trump took office I have never had issue with Democrats. Republicans, Senate, Congress etc just DMV, the court systems and misc here and there all tolerable. Thanks to Trump, I see clearly what the problems are and it doesn't have to be that way. America should be cared for and it gives back so much. Anyone that does not support the President, the flag and the Constitution unconditionally disrespects our systems, our foundations and jeopardizes our future too. I listen to what the Democrats say (not all) and I know our enemies rejoice and want to see more division and unrest. I don't mind the disagreements but the payback/dysfunction is out of control. Our enemies are trying to use our own people, Bill of rights government/systems against us under the guise of anything goes much like they used our own airplanes as missiles to destroy targets (911) in America something that should have been impossible to do. They are hoping for our collapse and we give them that hope. Now, with all that said, If we can come together knock out the problems one after another we would have near paradise here in the USA. Poverty, shelter, jobs, quality of life are all doable. Lets go already! Congress can prove their love via their actions

I don't know that that's something to brag about. BUT, I guess they realize they have nothing to brag about just about anything will do. 

For me, it's distressing that so many reject Creator.

Looks like the Russian propaganda mill is busy again.

And yet we have a president who only decided to pretend to be a Christian a few months before the election.

I actually heard that news on the radio today - but, they stated it differently - "Fewer Americans practice religion today than ever before in this country." I don't think it's confined to one political party though. 

I have devout Catholic friends who support our president but, would never vote for him - didn't in 2016 and won't in 2020 either. They're not 'religionless' but, they are tired of the media running the country.

Really, they are clever puppet masters and sadly, one particular party doesn't recognize that! The media put Obama into office and they 'accidentally' put Trump there - thinking he was the only one that Clinton could beat, so, they made sure he was the Reps candidate. That back-fired on them, BIG TIME!

That's just MHO and not worth a hill of beans to anyone else! LOL

I had not seen this stat before, Bob "RealMan" Timm , but it explains a lot.  The left's religion now is the environment.  It is frightening to see how this has taken our country away from common sense.

Freedom of religion is one of the freedoms we hold most dear in this country.  If someone wants to believe in a god, not believe in a god, believe in many gods, or whatever, that's fine with me.  The diversity of America is what makes us great.

Politics have really divided the country. For those actively practicing real estate, the topics of politics & religion will get half the crowd to back you up & alienate the other half.  I rarely discuss it with anyone since it won't matter one way or the other & I don't want people judging me based on my beliefs. Your retired though Bob "RealMan" Timm so you can stir the pot & not worry about it.

"Imagine"

John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... Aha-ah...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Politics is getting REALLY vicious these past few elections. It seems there are a lot more radicals on both sides than there has ever been. Quite simply though if your beliefs and values are way out of line with your countries then  you should seek happiness in a place that serves you better. They're trying to turn America into Europe but it's a futile effort.

Bob,

Interesting Democrat Manifesto.

Reading the commentary attached reveals what churns in the hearts of those celebrating this event.

What is alarming is we all SEE the same problems, and they are staggering, but always blame the other guy, blind to our own participation of this outcome.

So, lets blame it on RELIGION! Both sides hate religion and live in the illusion something was accomplished. And that is what those with an agenda do, Sell Illusions.

I was not aware.   Putting religion aside,

Common sense tells me that we cannot stand as divided as we are.  Other countries are using this to their advantage. They are waiting for the USA to destroy itself.
