    That's true, but Trump DOES care about ALL the people, much more than Obama, no doubt in my mind. He is gruff and controversial, old school if you will. He has good intentions and wants America to be better. People are ignoring some very good things going on here.

    There are roughly as many left leaning Christians in the US as right leaning. So no, it doesn't show that at all. And in most countries (where the right wing political viewpoint is not treated as if it were a biblical revelation) they have mostly a Christian Left.

    Yeah. Live and learn. There's growth in that.

    I'm still naive about a lot of things, but I've learned enough here that I'm a lot less trusting than I used to be.

    NOTE: This change need not be as a direct result of being on TOL (through the ideas and words of others), although those stories, I think, would be the most interesting.

    Thanks.
    I like your GUNS thread.

    While some things will never change insofar as my being an advocate supporter of the DP and vehemently against abortion, I have recently considered several key issues over the last year and half.

    Gun laws ... need to be stricter. Too many loons.

    Hate speech, hate crime laws and legislation ... I am now a full supporter of these things. My position was previously based on two issues: freedom of thought/speech and not wishing to bow to the mantra of political correctness. HOWEVER, seeing the hostility, attempts at voter suppression and the racial violence that was emboldened due to this last presidential election and followed into the White House, I now understand the concern and need for such laws. BTW, *White* House. It currently fits.

    I use to be for "school choice" under the banner of helping kids go to private school under the circumstance that it not take away from the public school system. No more. Thank you, Betsy De Vos.

    Healthcare .... REAL healthcare. For ALL. Lower to no premiums. Use the money put aside for the ridiculous wall.

    No doubt, I will think of more and add them later ...
    Of course you are no longer for rational laws. Youve moved far left due to your hatred of the president. Youve left sound thinking behind for blind hatred.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
    Proverbs 3:5-8

    I can understand why you don't like her proposals, but claiming they are irrational just sounds like an excuse not to consider then rationally. What specifically is irrational about each proposal?
