My usual, really. Many folks are either blowing their favorites or figuratively/literally rioting over their "beacon of evulzs."

That said my circle of veterans doesn't give a shit about me being trans or anyone being gay. "do your job, have my back, the rest I don't care about'

and they know how to tell good 'tranny' jokes.


Ahh, veterans. Well, if nothing else we at least have multiple parties on either side of the political spectrum for them to yell about. >.>

It's mostly yelling about the government spending money anywhere but on the promised justice for vets. We belong to all parties. We even had an xlex Colonel run for leadership of the NDP.

Vets take pride in being insensitive louts and the way they say "I love you bro" is to call each other scatalogical nicknames over a beer.

It's poor training for having civil discussions about politics.

Oh, I don't know. That sounds more civil than most political discussions I've seen lately and at least they're actual issue based discussions. Not incessant team rivalries like American politics tends to be. I'm not sure I know anyone whose on a "team" when it comes to Canadian politics. Everyone I know votes with whichever party currently represents their interests best. Which means shifting from one party to another every so often as needed. I don't even know anyone that votes straight ticket ( as in, same party for provincial and federal ).

I don't pay attention to it much. I do believe that Trump is a force for good. He is going to purify the evil in government. He's an unstoppable force and he is supported by the stars and protected by God. The reason why the corrupt democrats or just corrupt people in general are flipping out is because they know that Trump is coming after them.

Yes, that's why I tend to vote on propositions rather than individuals whose sole job is to promise to get things done, while getting nothing done and/or blaming the "other side" for nothing getting done, thus ensuring they both still have jobs

Its a non-stop happening party over at reddit.com/r/the_donald and in the few moments of peace we spread the word of kek.




You so funny.

Pretty much everyone is "done" with politics.
Trump's base is just in it for the lulz these days, like a /chan/ troll lingering on a meme after its dead and gone.
The rest are just.......

Definitely, I used to be hooked on politics, now that people have to bring it into every single little thing that is completely unrelated to it (i.e. sports, school, companies that used to publicly be impartial, etc.) I want nothing to do with it.
I stopped watching the news other than catching the weather or local news segment on rare occasion, no longer read much political stuff and tend to avoid political conversations.
People act like all of their viewpoints are indisputable facts and the other side is going to end the world. After the 2016 election, politics in general is far too toxic to put up with anymore.

*dying on floor laughing* you actually believe this dont you?! Oh boy you are going to be taken for one hell of a roller coaster ride these next 7 years, hopefully you will have joined the winners instead of staying on the losing side.

We have even more people supporting the_donald now then when we elected him. We have had tons of converts thanks to all the liars And fake news giving everyone red pill suppositories. The more you fight us the stronger we become. Oh well you probably won't believe me and will try to find some thing to try and convince yourself its not true till you either give in or deny reality itself.

I do because it is an endless argument that you cannot win. People often chose to shut off or insult people rather than debate. Iam not saying that i have never been guilty of that but yeah, people are often set in stone as to what they believe and/or are either too sensitive or aggressive to handle being wrong or having someone disagree with them.

No I've never cared about politics more than I do now. Trump is the best Politician I've ever seen and he isn't even a politician, hes a businessman! The last 8 years burnt me out as the party I grew up supporting and the President I voted for turned out to be cancer.


Umm you do know businessmen turned politicians isn't exactly rare? Business people and lawyers are the most common politicians. It's incredibility rare for a no one to become elected and actually do anything other then be a sheep just following their parties elected leader.
You need to look outside the US and see Trump is not the God you make him out to be. Trump is a standard store bought politician that loves talking about himself. Nothing new/fancy etc about him.

Anyway back to what I was saying Government is exactly like any business it has management and customers and a CEO.
Customers are everyday people, management are the elected people the CEO is the countries leader.
Customers want new things ideas and products and the government is the one that needs to make that happen.
So the different between a business and a government overall is next to zero. Hence why it's such a good fit. If Trump was a lawyer chances are his travel bans wouldn't have been written incorrectly as he would understand the law better. Which is why a previous time practicing law is a good thing to have too.

Oh, my sweet summer child.
What do you know of trolling?



r/The_Donald's hype train is long gone.
Sub growth has diminished and you're only disillusioning yourself.
Excuse me, I'll be over here laughing at you.

I've met my share and actually have in my friends list both die hard small 'l' liberals and small 'c' conservatives. They tend to vote for the capital letter parties associated with their beliefs. Although I've seen some left wingers distracted by the NDP. and the Liberals scooping up all the 'red tories' disillusioned with harper's Conservatives and the fact that they doubled down on Scheer.

Yes, because it's a constant reminder of how stupid and jingoistic people can be.

STILL NOT TIRED OF WINNING!
