    Better yet, name one pro that outweighs all their many cons and/or the Democrats' pros.

    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.
    Both: DOHOHOHOHOHO!

    I might name some of the Republican party 70-100 years ago, but now? Hah.

    Don't worry, Teddy, you'll always be my Green Man.

    70-100 years ago they were technically democrats by modern viewpoint. The parties switched places in almost every way over the 60's and 70's.

    And don't say occasionally opposing Trump ala John McCain/Jeff Flake.

I voted because I'm scared of my own government. I voted because I don't want anyone in these forums or anyone else to lynch me for not doing my duty. I voted because I'm a One Piece fan and somehow, One Piece fans think their viewpoints here translate to real change at the poll. I voted because Democrats are good and Republicans are evil even though both sides carry their pros and cons. I voted because Donald Trump is the president who needs to be stopped despite having the freedom to enact his privileges granted to him under the constitution. I voted because it is better to bitch about the government not doing their job right despite the fact that under a proper democracy, it should be the exact opposite because it WORKS in the interests of the people. I voted because well...I voted.
    I'm tired of being told there's no difference between the parties when shit like this is happening.


    I repeatedly told whoever was listening that EXACTLY THIS would happen if Trump won because it's the stated policy of his actual party. I, and people like me were dismissed as alarmist by Republicans and the Never Hillary "Progressive" crowd.

    I'm just getting angrier and angrier. It's taking all my effort not to go on a profanity-laden rant directed at anyone who continues to tell me I'm being alarmist, "Both sides bad" or voting doesn't matter.

    This isn't some ideological game. Real people are actually being harmed by this administration. A lot of people could have stopped this but chose not to.

    I'm on the verge of tears so I'm gonna stop tying before I lose it at work.

    What are the pros of the modern Republican party. I'm really curious what outweighs... everything they're doing that makes it any sort of a comparison to the other party.


    I voted because Donald Trump is the president who needs to be stopped despite having the freedom to enact his privileges granted to him under the constitution.
    He does not actually have the freedoms to do many of the things he has done. Like order infants be torn from their parents and put in cages, to name one. He is enabled by a congress that isn't checking him.

    Guys, today's news really has me stressed out and upset and fearful. I'm seriously not ok right now. I'm about to start crying.

    I didn't actually say what it was, so for anyone who didn't click my link in the last post, the Trump administration wants to rigidly define gender based on genitals at birth in an official Government capacity.

    This will effectively wipe out any federal protection for Trans people period.......
