I agree with this. Trump is the "a pox on both your houses" vote. He has foot-in-mouth disease but his supporters don't seem to mind. At this point, the conservatives are willing to let the GOP implode and have a do-over, because they know that cleaning house has to start with them, as the Democrats will never have that introspection to recognize their party's failures.Trump is the vote of non-confidence.
Democrat Pundits: Republicans are anti-women and they want to take your abortion rights away. Back alley abortions with coat hangers! Rise up, women, and vote!
Republican Pundits: Democrats are anti-gun and they want to strip you of your 2A rights. They're gonna take your guns away! Rise up, gun owners, and vote!
These single issue voters are one reason this country is in limbo and continues to be ruled by the establishment. If the fear monger tactics work, why change it?
Both are divide-and-conquer fear monger tactics that have proven to work over and over. While under Obama, efforts have been made to limit the number of rounds in a magazine, the number of guns sold during his tenure experienced a sharp uptick. I don't see abortion rights or the Second Amendment going away anytime soon. Even though the crime rate has actually gone down, the media likes to focus on shootings to influence the masses while ignoring cities like Chicago where it is very hard to acquire a gun by legal means yet there are hundreds of murders by guns per year.
Meanwhile, the national debt continues to rise, exponentially... from 6 trillion under Clinton to 10 trillion under Bush Jr. to 20 trillion under Obama. More people are on food stamps and welfare than at any other time in U.S. history. The labor participation rate is abysmal. The economy is growing at a rate that is the worst under any previous president. The middle class has been decimated. Tens of millions of families have lost their previous health insurance and now have to decide if they want to pay Obamacare's sky high premiums or pay the penalty tax that increases every year. Slowly the media pundits and outlets are beginning to acknowledge what many have known all along: that Obamacare is a disaster. United Healthcare and Aetna, two healthcare insurance companies, have or will bail on Obamacare. The Russians, Chinese, and Iranians think we are a joke. We got nothing from the Iranian Nuclear Deal because our leaders and negotiators are complete and utter morons. The Iranian mullahs are snickering at us as they wheelbarrows the billions our government gave them to the bank as they continue to build their nukes.
But abortions! War on women! Second Amendment!
