    Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

          I am always amazed at the number of people who are so adamantly opposed to anyone who isn't a member of their pet ideology. There are plenty of people even here on the WAB who I disagree with, sometimes even vehemently. Yet that doesn't make them bad people who want an abusive state to destroy the country.

          I might think the person I disagree with is missing the point, misguided, or just an idiot. But on more than one occasion I have had my views challenged in such a way as to force me to reconsider them and ultimately change my thinking.

          One of the things I like most about the WAB is the diversity of viewpoints and the number of people willing to back up their views with rational explanations and debate.

          Yet once you have to resort to ultimatums and attacks against the other party, that is usually a pretty good indication that your ideas and reasoning can't stand on their own merits. Opening with these tactics is a pretty sure sign that you don't intend to offer anything meaningful to the discussion.

          Not applicable to this board or you, but talk is pretty cheap. I've heard stuff like this for going on 20 years now, and usually that's coming from a so-called "moderate" who really toes a party line on virtually every issue.

          I prefer the honest ideologues, who don't even pretend to listen to my opinions. Also party-affiliated ideologues tend to have at least superficial knowledge of current issues. "independent" ideloegous are just sarcastic cynics that make Holden Caulfield seem bubbly.
