Pax on both houses
The best is enemy of the good. The profoundest truths are paradoxical.

Frog Hospital's Fred Owens: "America Is Getting Smaller. Trumpistan Is Getting Bigger."
And although Donald trashes every tried-and-true friend of the United States, he can speak no evil of kleptocrat-thug-murderer Valdimir Putin.
America is getting smaller. Trumpistan is getting bigger.....this is quite a problem. What can we do?
I don't want to live in Trumpistan, i like it better here. I'm a Democrat, and that means I'm cranky and hard to organize. I don't agree with anyone and I vote every time. Usually I vote them out because I get tired of their nonsense. I will vote again
Whenever I read American history I grow increasingly aware of how people who think "opinion trumps truth" have essentially no historical understanding of these United States and how our social, political and economic experiment unfolded.
As often happens, they fill their "knowledge void" with fuzzy feelings and whatever whole-cloth lies and "alternative truths" are needed to keep their vampire-sham "undead."
I doubt one in a hundred is aware that ALL "The Founding Fathers" promoted the philosophical and historical movement called "Liberal Democracy."
Instead, "the self-pithed" are convinced that anything having to do with the word "liberal" is at least "un-American" and probably traitorous.
George McGovern: "The Case For Liberalism, A Defense Of The Future Against The Past"
These diligently ill-informed dimwits are not just wrong about damn near
They're 180 degrees wrong.
They think they could sit down to have a beer with Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, Paine, Adams and Hamilton and that their political conversation would be a kind of trans-millennial "homecoming."
However, "The Founders" - almost all of them Deists and ALL of them believers in "Liberal Democracy" would find it impossible to believe that these visitors from the 21st century considered themselves exemplars of "The American Way" and defenders of The Constitution.
"Deism And Founding Father Links"
If nothing else, the founders' epistemological roots went directly through "Liberal Democracy" to "The European Enlightenment," a lineage that made them all committed rationalists and earnest devotees of Science and The Scientific Method. To a man, they would cheer scientific findings on anthropogenic global warming and they would take intelligent action in light of those findings.
As for Trump, the founders would read the following post, and to defend their nation's honor -- as well as their own personal honor -- they would, one after another, challenge him to deadly duel at 20 paces.
Again, if you don't want to risk being offended, don't open the link.
