    A good argument can be made against Democrats, but it will never be an adequate excuse for supporting Trump. And I've never seen political division this bad in my lifetime.


I am not saying they are innocent. And I used poor phrasing. Regarding the election results, everything is blamed on the Dems with minimal blame on the GOP or voters.

So, you are correct. I am mistaken.

    It's not a choice of right or left, conservative or liberal -- but one of simple human decency.


To a point. I mean consider, while everything you say is correct, about 80% of Republican's approve of Trump.

And there are some polls that make it fairly clear, a few recent ones, that what conservatism was is morphing to Trump's ends. Or at least sympathies are.

Consider that many conservatives very open to free markets are not much more supportive of protectionist provisions and so on. So, I would argue from a somewhat different hypothesis. Trump in many ways is the worst of conservatism personified. Most poll takers do not like the man, but most Republicans and conservatives do. I do not think we can ignore that either.
