What that does is:

1. Ensure he stays in the race, which ...

3. A now discredited party at war with itself and now unacceptable to more than 60% of the country.
I get that, and maybe that's her strategy all along. But it is very, very frustrating to see a lot of reasonable people tweeting about Trump's big win. He was incoherent, offensive, "unpresidential", but most infuriating of all Hillary didn't turn the heat on him when he absolutely deserved it. Anderson made a great go of it at the start but by the 20-minute mark all previous indiscretions were forgotten and him and Hillary were on an equal footing.

I would characterize the group you describe as "defense hawks", not really economic conservatives (which big businesses tend to be).

Republicans have been able to maintain a weird coalition between low tax/small state folks and the defense hawks, which is somewhat contradictory. I guess "small state" applies to social programs and not the military in their mind.

Bear with me, but Piers Morgan (always admired his passionate anti-gun stance on CNN, although it seems he's given in and become a total shithead in recent times), Joe Scarborough (I'm assuming he's level-headed? I may be wrong), some media outlets like The Atlantic, The Ringer.

Pretty much.

Course, even on the social issues it varies, depending on their personal beliefs on the issue at hand. Federal government regulating guns? Nope. Let the states handle that. Federal government deciding who can get married* or what a woman can do with her body, on the other hand? Yeah, that's totally cool.

*Mind, they soon moved to a "let the states decide" mindset on same-sex marriage, too, but still.

Context. You addressed a post that was asking for context, but didn't quote, so like often no one knows what you're talking about unless they read several posts back and piece it together. And then you answer without any real context.

Finally a bright spot in this miserable election cycle.

Hope they go on tour.
I'll be right alongside Sil on the rail.

"BIASED".

FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

THE ADJECTIVE FORM OF "BIAS" IS "BIASED".

I have marked so many fucking essays lately that use "bias" when they mean "biased" that it is driving me up the goddamn wall.

Fucking HELL English is not this hard.

I was a little bummed when Kenneth Bone said he was an undecided, but this video, holy shit, he is a genuine fucking sweetheart. A genuinely good, kind-hearted person. Fiscally conservative working in coal but horrified by Trump's social stances.
