    Default Issue You Disagree with Your Party

    What's one major issue that your party supports but you disagree with? When I say issue, I don't mean one part of an issue. I mean the entire platform of the issue. For instance, if you support the GOP, then a good issue would be Immigration. Not just one piece of their Immigration platform, but you disagree entirely or almost entirely with everything the GOP believes about Immigration.

    This could be an interesting thread if the trolling and insincerity stays at bay.

    I think the democrats are wrong on trade. The TPP was a bad idea, and fighting China is the right thing to do. That doesn't mean I agree with how Trump is doing it, but some of his instincts are correct.

    The Environment. The GOP is way off on everything about the Environment. They too easily allow big business to pollute in order to increase profits. They should be promoting restoration, not degradation.

    With your own party, doofus. You are so dumb that you can't even get that right.

    Ditto that for me. That and the Rs as a whole have not stood up and been willing to FIGHT for lower spending, especially on entitlements.

    Well, that would require an issue where the party had strong agreement.

    I'm a Democrat, and right now, the Democrats are so split between the Progressives and the Moderates that I'm not sure all Democrats agree on anything.

    I consider myself a moderate Democrat, and I disagree with the Progressives on multiple issues - but that is different than disagreeing with the entire party. FWIW, I am not in favor of free college, Medicare for All (as currently proposed) and Open Borders. But again, those are not the positions of the entire party - they are the positions of a faction of the party.

    But, as I said, I'm not sure there is any issue where a poll of Democrats would find 80% agreement or more. Except for "I don't like Trump." They can all agree on that. Anything else, the Dems are probably split 55/45 in favor of the Progressives.

    Since I consider myself a moderate:

    The right: Cowtowing to corporate America. Financial royalty. Guns. Private education. Religious B$hit.

    The left: Socialism. Feminism. Cowtowing to racism, sexism and homosexuality. Absolute allegiance to all things abortion. Thinking we can save the world if we let them all move to America.

    You get a D-. Heh, you didn't flunk.

    EDIT: Thought for a second about it and came back to raise it to a C.

    I don't want to b accused of causing you a second heart attack, so I'll be gentle. You are no moderate although you are still a decent man. We good so far? You are actually a go along-get along communist.

    The Left: PC culture. Teaches idiotic behavior and thought.

    The Right: Pollution/environment. They have no issues with companies, and states, polluting the water and land.

    The worst polluters are the municipal waste water treatment facilities. And they send it down river for your dining pleasure.
