I'm a Conservative

I feel like this was written by an aging boomer on tSwill. I like Garrison Keillor, but parts of this are straight up annoying.

Noooo no no. Even with DeVos going to the same church as me. Terrible situation

Compared to most on this board, though, i'm pretty conservative. I agree with Goose more than i do with you lefties. But I do hate Trump, no doubt about that

Now the Republicans will throw their hands up and say gee it wasn’t us. Matter of fact, they already started

Two decades of public schools being raped by republicans and now the pubs are saying “but look at how she was dressed”

I'm actually pretty conservative in a lot of ways.. just not in the hate-filled religious extremist way that the modern republican party has steered itself.

I was a fan of Michael Bloomberg's work as mayor in NYC. Why can't more conservatives be like Mike? Seems like Romney did a similar type of job in Massachusetts. Over all Bloomberg had his flaws but I thought he was very practical and cared about the people.

Glad to see everyone agrees Trumpism is a complete disaster.

You aren't kidding about the loony modern right wing party. Steve Bannon, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, the Alt. Right, Trump and his base have a lot of parallels with the 60's extremist like Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, the weather underground, the Chicago 8 and the free loving stoned hippies.

The modern right espouses radical ideas, they promote violence, they are a lunatic fringe and a lot of them are high on drugs.

Just like the radical left from the 60's they preach a spiritual message of love and unity but their actions are the complete opposite of their spiritual beliefs.

hmm...

not to sound overly cynical but I'll believe it when I see it happen.

If she does resign, I only hope that the next Sec. of Education believes in protecting school children from grizzly bears the way she does.

I really like Kasich. I wish he got further along. i have voted on both sides. I think most of us (at least on tswill) can agree on things on both sides.

Kaish vs Biden would have centered our country with much less hate.
