    Trump's presidency is a field rich for debate, but you can't have a rational debate with someone who continually screams, "Orange man bad!"

    It is not the truth. And I don't believe that you actually believe it to be true.
    Sadly, yes, I believe it's true that you are so obsessed with Trump that anybody who is not equally obsessed is a "Trump Supporter". I fully expect that kind of "logic" from lost people, but not from brothers in Christ.

    I think you are just annoyed at my comments and want to attack me for making those comments.
    Attack? Sheeeeeesh. It is my personal heart-felt belief that you have become so obsessed with Trump that you are no longer rational. It's not an attack, it's a legitimate concern, Jim.

    but regardless, there is nothing in that statement that is going to encourage peace, or keep the peace. It is an attack on me.
    I'm not the least bit surprised that you see it that way - that's your prerogative.

    Now - if you are actually concerned about 'peace' around here, you will stop doing that sort of thing.
    I'll stop doing what, exactly? Expressing concern over your constant unrelenting obsession with Trump, and not sharing it?

    Let's go over this again, Jim...

    • Trump could not have been elected if God did not allow it. Do you dispute this point?
    • I personally voted 'for' Trump because it was really clear that the alternative was very much pro-abortion, and far more likely to associate with the anti-Christian agenda of the left against pretty much everything I believe.
    • I recognized that Trump was a seriously flawed candidate, but I was not voting for him as pastor-in-chief, and saw him as 'the evil of two lessers'.
    • The liberals have been absolutely relentless in getting rid of Trump, even before he took office, and for whatever reason, God hasn't seemed to bless their efforts.
    • There is a process for legitimately removing a person such as Trump from office, and that is the impeachment process, which the liberals seem to be politicizing beyond belief.
    • Meanwhile, he is the legitimately elected POTUS, and it is my Christian duty to pray for him. I actually pray daily for Trump to "become a human". I saw God do that with my own daughter, who had slipped into the culture of death, drugs, lawlessness, rebellion -- and God has gloriously pulled her from that and made her an incredibly beautiful person who is living for Jesus and praising Him.
    • Spending pretty much every waking moment of my life attacking Trump isn't going to change a single thing - but faithfully praying for him just might.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I'm willing to listen. I think, down deep, Jim is a really good man. I just think he's seriously deluded on this whole Trump thing. I guess that makes me a liar.

    In many ways, Trump is truly blessed by his enemies.

    Some might, but itís really tiring after awhile. I got enough screaming kids of my own to worry about without adult ones to add on top.

    They couldn't have picked a better guy to prosecute the impeachment.

    They seem pretty determined to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in 2020.

    If anything, this thread is proving the article true. In short, the point the article makes is in the Democrat rush to make everything Trump says or does as being bad, they overlook their own failures and mistakes.

    It was the Democrat party's entire plan since Trump was elected to take back control of Congress in 2018 and then impeach him and remove him from office (and then they likely would have pressured Pence to resign paving the way for Nancy Pelosi to become president), and I believe they would have already done so if Republicans hadn't held onto and actually made gains in the Senate, contrary to historical precedent and expectations.

    And now their backs are against the wall because they have literally nothing to run on in 2020. They can not point a single legislative accomplishment and tell voters, "This is what we did for you." And with Barr and Durham breathing down their necks, time is quickly running out. The buzz I'm hearing is that the IG report is going to be devastating and a "career ender" for a number of prominent politicians. I guess we'll see.

    Sadly, you seem to be correct, and nobody has pointed out any errors or fact problems in the article itself. They just seem to be underscoring the message of the article.
