    No surprise given their class issues are very old world style, possibly the most alien thing about them to an American.
    I agree, but having moved from Italy to the UK, I happen to think the UK's class system is actually one of the most extreme class systems in Europe. It's so entrenched in every social interaction, especially with how the accent you have (moreso that your clothes and in some circles moreso than skin-colour) influences the way people treat you and think of you, it's really hard to ignore! Some areas actually have two or more regional accents, for upper class, middle class, and lower class people. Probably my least favourite thing about the UK, it's amazing how such a 'progressive' country can have such a strongly ingrained bigotry relating to speech and upbringing.

    Communism in America has functionally been dead since the Soviet Union stopped funneling cash to CPUSA in the late 80s due to them being huge Stalinists. It now only exists in the rooms of white suburban college kids who wear Che shirts and think that Zach de la Rocha is the most profound songwriter of all time.

    Compare to fascism, which has been on the rise and a public force for quite a while now.

    I can believe that actually, given the history.
    They've had the largest scale longest lasting ancien' regime and all attached nobility that comes therein.

    You know Statler, after watching the last seven hundred episodes of One Piece, I think I've come to a conclusion.
    Statler: No you haven't.

    Yeah, I really don't think Alabamians are big Obama fans. Are they? If they are that'd be a bit weird, they're a hard red state aren't they. A good chunk probably agree with Trump that he's born in Kenya. Just a hunch, but I reckon Ex-Prez ain't gonna change things -_-

    Oh fair, it's 25% Afro-American in Alabama (compared to 13% US wide), that does kinda change things.

    BREAKING: Pentagon says it will allow transgender people to enlist in the military beginning Jan. 1, despite Trump's opposition.
    Some good news. The Pentagon decided not to listen to Trump's dumb and bad idea.

    Folks like Robby have already discussed in general how this thread works regarding Conservative/Republican opinions in general: That being that as long as you aren't an asshole, use hate speech, slurs, or calls for violence while trying to make your points, you're free to share your opinion, Democrat or Republican alike.

    One thing I want to add to Robby's statement is this however:

    As he said, the majority of folks here ARE either some level of Liberal or are more moderate conservatives who don't fully agree with Trump or the official party's platform or actions right now. I know some people here who identify as conservative who are more liberal on social issues too.

    What this means is, someone who is more conservative may not have too popular an opinion here. This is a discussion forum. We post to discuss with one another. So what will happen if you post one of these unpopular opinions is that a lot of people will see it and in the spirit of discussion, reply with their opinions and counter-points. Sometimes, it will be a LOT of people replying to you because, again, unpopular opinion on a discussion forum.

    It becomes easy to then feel like you're being piled onto and "attacked" for having the unpopular opinion even if everybody is keeping their tone civil. Don't fall into this trap.

    I say all of this because I actually WANT some opposing viewpoints in here. It would be very interesting to me to see a rank and file Conservative's thoughts on these issues and if one can rebut without resorting to attacks or bigotry I think that might actually add something to the thread.

    One of the problems we have right now is there is Right, then there is Alt-Right. A conservative like Eisenhower or even Regan would be appalled by some of the shit that's going on right now.

    Not if the calls are being targeted to the main Democratic voters of Alabama, aka, black people.

    Operation Wetback suggests Eisenhower would be pretty cool with Trump's immigration policies at least.

    Reagan would only really be appalled by the cozying up to Russia.

    To be honest, there is a certain something about all elected republicans that makes me think of this little gem

    I don't think either would be okay with the general idiot and embarrassment Trump is. And yes, I know Reagan had Alzheimer's, but Trump has been an idiot his whole life.
