    Republicans...Is it difficult to understand why Democrats continue to vote for a Liberal agenda???

    Maybe this will make things easier for you to understand: Take a long hard look at the DJIA, unemployment rate, job growth, rate of bank failures, number of long term unemployed people, number of dead soldiers coming home from the middle east, number of soldiers coming home minus arms, legs and eyes, number of failed businesses, number of people with health insurance, the health of Osama Bin Laden and the number of terror alerts in 2008....and look at these things now. Are you still having difficulty?? I might be able to explain things even more simply than this...but I'd need puppets and crayons!

    Apparently you don't realize that Democrats played a role in all that you mentioned and besides all the Democrat politicians are liars. 😏

    Go back to your Republican masters and tell them you're working towards fulfilling their goals of having the middle class become even poorer and making them even more rich. Only people as stupid as you work against your own best interests.

    For the same reason one would prefer a giant douche over a turd sandwich.

    You just gave all the reasons why people are at least beginning to see that government doesn't have the solutions to all problems, in fact the biggest ones they create.

    Not much of a choice.

    Try to recognize that your success or failure is not due to the party of the President, and that Congress can't just legislate prosperity.

    I have no Masters, and don't want any.

    Congress for sure cannot legislate prosperity but they CERTAINLY can impede it. They are doing THAT quite well.

    I don't understand the rank and file republicans who are in the middle class, let those robbers in Washington take their class away from them and shove them down the ranks to poverty while legislating tax laws so the billionaires pay zero tax. Most of them pay the same amount of tax as the homeless.

    That is not a coincidence.

    No. There are many to blame on both sides. But now we need a leader that will push us in the right direction, and Hillary or Bernie is the wrong leader for the job.

    Government has generally done that regardless of the party in charge. I don't understand rank and file of either party. The robbers in Washington just have different initials after their names, but all of them seem to return home far more wealthy than when they left all on pauper's wages. How does that work?

    No, a highly intellectual guy is giving you an opportunity to clarify a vague/meaningless statement.
