"We have seen our discourse degraded by pandering politicians like George W Bush. At times, it can seem like the forces polarizing us politically in terms of partisanship are weaker than the forces causing us to hate Trump . Honest opinion turns too easily into paid propaganda. Disagreement escalates into rampant smear campaigns across all mainstream media. Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions – forgetting that the left and the right are both full of shit.
We’ve seen nationalism distorted into globalism, forgotten the dynamism that independence has always brought to America. We see a fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade – forgetting that conflict, instability, and poverty follow in the wake of being in debt to china.
We have seen the return of idiotic sentiments – forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places, where threats such as terrorism, infectious disease, criminal gangs and drug trafficking tend to emerge and that Bush has done no better than Trump in dealing with them.
"“Our identity as a nation – unlike many other nations – is not determined by geography or ethnicity, by soil or blood. Being an American involves the embrace of polarized political ideologies and constant in-fighting. We become the heirs of George Bush by accepting the ideal of human dignity unless it involves profiting from third world slave labor. We become the heirs of James Madison by understanding the genius and values of the U.S. Constitution which George clearly doesn't, remember the patriot act? We become the heirs of Martin Luther King, Jr., by recognizing one another not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. And George Bush has horrible character.
This means that people of every race, religion, and ethnicity can be fully and equally hateful of both Trump AND Hitler...I mean Bush.
Spot on Mr. Nomenclature. I can't believe how these peons are praising one idiot just for speaking out against another. Just because this odorous leech is pandering to the public's hatred of Trump doesn't mean he is any less of a dishonest and repugnantly stupid person.
