    I tuned in to the Morning Joe show a few days back. Mr Scarborough, a former GOP lawmaker, made an important point that has become lost on most voters. Joe said " American voters have become so polarized, they've lost their ability to see things from the other side. If Hillary Clinton had won the election despite refusing to release her tax returns, attacking the media the way Donald Trump has done, having so many conflicts of interest between her business and her political spheres, having years of business relations with Russia, lying about as many things as Donald Trump has, surrounding herself with election staff that was in contact with the Russians during her campaign, and taking such a warm and cozy stance on Russia, Republicans would be in open revolt in this country!" I must add, that the Democrats are little better than this when it comes to this political tunnel vision. I do hope this is not the America of the future.

    I would be more than happy to see it from the democrats side but they unfortunately don't have a side to be seen. Their political strategy is lie and bluster while in the background enriching themselves. I am yet to talk to a republican that could discus policy in any sort of sane fashion.

    It took listening to a radio show to figure this out?

    Ignorance is bliss.

    Maybe, but the press would not cover it. In fact we wouldn't even know except for Fox and a few websites. The majority of America would not have heard.

    You found out exactly what to believe. Makes sense.

    Glad they finally got around to informing you.

    Sorry, I forgot. Anything that does not march in lockstep with "The Donald" is fake news, right?
