    When you call yourself the "resistance" you are leaving a clue.

    Yeah, that you are willing to go to great lengths... even shooting republican congresmen while they play baseball ... to stop them.

    They keep saying they are "under attack"... justifying killing those people whose views differ from their own. Sick SOB's need to be put behind bars for the safety of American citizens.

    Several groups across the country appear to promote violence against conservatives and the defense of liberal ideology – by any means necessary.

    One group actually calls itself “By Any Means Necessary,” or BAMN.

    Its founder, civil rights lawyer and BAMN leader Shanta Driver, told Mother Jones magazine, “When we say ‘by any means necessary,’ we mean everything from doing legal cases to organizing more militant actions. We are not people who believe, in situations where we’re under attack, that we should turn the other check.”

    Similar groups are Redneck Revolt and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, which says among its mission is to “educate black, brown, and poor white people to arms up or at least get familiar with weapons,” according to founder Yafeuh Balogun’s remarks to Mother Jones.

    BAMN was part of a group that engaged in a counter-protest last year in Sacramento for a showdown against white nationalists. The counter-protesters attacked the nationalists with water bottles and wooden bats, according to published reports.

    You can't reason with or debate people like this.

    The fact is the Republicans were mostly obstructionists for 8 years. As a conservative, I'm glad they were. Now the roles are reversed as are the arguments. It's called politics and it'll be completely reversed again in some number of years.

    Regarding the Senate healthcare bill, they clearly haven't learned anything by hiding it from anyone but a select few. Once again, elected Republicans are no better than Democrats.

    Standing in the way of something because it's against your core values and doing so just to keep the other side (and possibly your own country) from succeeding are two different things.

    I'm sure Democrats think they are doing it for their core values too. You and I may think otherwise just like they probably thought otherwise when Republicans were doing it.

    Some, but not all. They are opposing things there were previously for. The Democratic party is sold out and they don't work for us anymore. Some of the Republicans are too, but it's not as part wide as it is with the Dems. Yet, anyway.

    EX: Conservatives (the few that are left in the GOP) are standing on principle when they oppose high taxes or excessive regulation.

    The Dems are pretty must opposing everything Trump does. He could declare the US a Socialist state and they would oppose it just to try make his fail.

    Swap Dems and Republicans around and Trump for Obama and a Democrat would have what they believe to be a valid argument too. I get that we, as conservatives, think our ideas are better but don't think for a minute that the liberals don't think the same.

    Sure, some Dems have opposing Trump as their primary goal. Some Republicans had the same goal for Obama.

    Summary: both sides suck!

    Both sides do suck. But I honestly don't think I've ever see this much viciousness.

    The few times Obama did something Agreed with, I commended him. Just go look at the other site; there is nothing Trump could do that they would approve of.

    I expect no less from Dems. As for the pubs (pronounced pubes, lol) they may have been obstructionist during Obama's reign, not because he was Obama but because Obama's policies sucked and because he seemed to be deliberately attempting to tear American apart. Dems are doing the same but because Trump is Trump, regardless of whether or not he's attempting to turn our country back around.

    Both parties do suck....badly, but I'm glad we at least have a leader who isn't afraid to put America first. Even if it is only lip service.
