SPEAKING OF "MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" AND/OR "TAKING AMERICA BACK"

A total of 57 percent of all voters "strongly agree" or "somewhat agree" with the statement, "America has lost its identity," as 43 percent "somewhat disagree" or "strongly disagree."Among all Republicans, 79 percent agree, while only 36 percent of Democrats agree. The highest level of agreement is expressed by GOP supporters of Donald Trump, as 85 percent "agree," the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.
All right, so America has lost its "identity." What was its previous identity, before it lost it? Are we talking about the one with segregated water fountains? Did it all go downhill after the advent of the push-button phone? Given that Trump supporters have by far the strongest feelings about this and that Trump himself is, politically, known for birtherism and comments about Mexico, I can only assume this is a proxy question for how racist are you.
The pattern continues as 62 percent of all voters, including 85 percent of all Republicansand 40 percent of Democrats agree that their "beliefs and values are under attack." Ninety one percent of Trump backers agree, the highest of any candidate.
Outstanding. And what are your beliefs, precisely, the ones that you feel the rest of America isn't letting you properly express anymore? Is this a gun thing? A vibrant hatred of The Gays? Do you have extra-strong feelings about interracial marriage that your neighbors are no longer quite as eager to listen to?
There is a wide partisan division among American voters on the statement, "The government has gone too far in assisting minority groups." Agreement is 45 percent among all voters, 72 percent among all Republicans and 18 percent among Democrats. Agreement is highest among Trump backers, 80 percent.
All right, so this really is just a racism thing. Them otherfolks have it too damn easy these days, and I would be doing a whole lot better in life if the gubbermint would stop doing unspecified somethings to help them out.
Jeebus, America, get your shit together. I don't know if we need national televised therapy sessions or what—snipping the cables that lead to and from the Fox News studios would probably help out a lot—but this is maudlin, at this point. Though it does explain why so much of the Republican Party is willing to burn the government down rather than, say, give the black president even one more Supreme Court appointment. Our "identity" is at stake, apparently.

NOTE:  If you listen to Trump and Cruz (to say nothing of what Rush Limbaugh's spouts off daily) you would think that America has plummeted in status and stature to someplace just above the Maldives.  Apparently if we aren't invading/bombing/bringing democracy to some Third World country somewhere on Planet Earth, we just aren't cutting it.  Or is it because we libruls have jammed Political Correctness so far down Conservatives/TeaBagger?Republican throats that they no longer have the ability to even speak. (I would be greatly in favor of this, but, you know, First Amendment rights and all that garbage.)  But I think "Hunter" At DAILY KOS hits the proverbial nail on the head of a negro with his fat lips sucking on a watermelon.  Just sayin'.........

If Native Americans ever start this "Take America Back" thingy, we are going to be in real trouble!

Have a good day!
