An alarming number of Americans apparently give thumbs up to the following statements:

1. There are no facts; just opinions.

2. When science collides with mythology, always go with the myth.

3. Working people don’t need a living wage--or health care.

4. The US Constitution is a meaningless document that has no place in today’s politics.

5. The president is above the law. His actions and statements should never be questioned. He must never be investigated or charged.

6. Lying and cheating are acceptable means to our end — as is torturing children.

7. A free press is the enemy of the people. All news should come from state-friendly media (FOX cable e.g.), ala Russia, North Korea, China, etc.

8. Using public office to line ones pockets at the expense of, and detriment to, the country is just doing business.

9. The skyrocketing national debt is no problem; we’ll just print more money.

10. There’s nothing wrong with conspiring with foreign adversaries to sabotage American elections; winning is what matters.

You don’t agree with these statements? Then why do you vote for those who do?

The GOP (Gang of Putin) 2020 platform.

What a load of garbage. The "chicken little's" of the radical left proclaiming the sky is falling again.

"chicken littles" - no apostrophe needed, Doug. There is no possessive. Happy to help.

DLJohnson

Thanks for the English lesson.

So can you state why you think each point above is wrong? Feel free to go into detail if you would, or are you just going to spin and ask a question for each one as usual?

DLJohnson

GBR SD: All are violations committed by the Democrats. How many Democrats have become millionaires by kick backs and payments by lobbyists? Trump was already a billionaire before he got elected. So, he didn't get rich off of our backs like the career politicians have. How many Democrats go around putting themselves above the law believing they can make the rules up as they go along, Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler? Keep following the Democrats and they will pull you down to join them in the gutter.

GBR SD

DLJohnson you are not making any points about Trump, all you do is play the blame game and bring up other politicians when we are talking about Trump and him alone. How hard is it for you to answer a question correctly. Lets start with an easy one: Do you believe Donald trump lies? YES or NO

Oh, Ye of little faith! If He didn’t want His Chosen One in office, He wouldn’t have created the Electoral College! God works in Mysterious Ways, Ye sinners! Repent of your wicked ways!!!! Revelations 7

GBR SD

"wicked ways" like having multiple affairs while married and sleeping with an adult film actress? You mean like that, or do you mean grabbing women by the hu hot because you can get away with it, once again while still married...or is that not considered "wicked"?

GBR SD

Terry is spot on and if you disagree with his comment I would like to hear your opinion on this. Defend each of the points above without asking a question or spinning your answer. Now remember, you can only use FACTS and not "alternate facts" or anything that can not be verified...we'll wait as this may take you quite some time. You may start now.

GiftofTheMAGA

None of those points matter. The “truth” of unbelievers is worthless - it’s the Will of God that counts! And He’s determined, in his Infinite Wisdom, that His Chosen One in the White House will lead us to the Promised Land!

GBR SD

You are so funny, I bet you are really an atheist....the only chosen thing in the White House is when Donny "chooses" McDonalds.

GBR SD

Your comments are pointless thus proving you are just here to "stir the pot" and are probably really an atheist, am I getting warmer?

DLJohnson

GBR SD: Yes just as you do. When you say answer a question correctly, what do you mean. I hope you're not saying whether or not an answer is correct is determined by you.

GBR SD, if you don’t know by now, this is all you’ll get from Mr. DL Johnson. My older brother says he wasn’t a real warrior, though his photo might hint he was. He was an MP whose job it is to harass the real warriors while they were between combat deployments. He talks tough, but he hides. Just like he hid from conflict on the safely of his military base. You can waste your time if you want. He talks tough, but he’s too cowardly to engage in real debate.
