Re: MGGA: Trump has asked aides about possibility of US acquiring Greenland: report

Perhaps Trump should study up on how Woodrow Wilson was able to purchase what is now the USVI from Denmark in 1917 for $25 million (roughly $500 million today).

Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

Trump, I like 80% of what he has done as President, I hate 80% of what he says/tweets. Trump is a crude, egocentric buffon. He is not the racist that the mlm makes him out to be. Imho he is less racist than Obama. His rhetoric is not the smooth soothing crap that the big O put out, but his actions a...

The struggle is not really along Conservative vs Liberal lines, but rather Urban vs Rural with Suburbia as the battle ground that decides which values win any particular election.
