Just think of all the stuff you guys took for granted even 10 years ago that is no longer acceptable.
You mean like:
Evidence
Responsibility
Logic
Humor
Patriotism
Etc.?

All things that Trump supports and advocates?

the self-serving, sjw way of life that took course over the past 10 years is what brought us all trump, and clutching to failed emotionally-driven way of life will lead to another 4 years of the big t  8)

It's always darkest before the light...last gasp of the old guard.  In 20 years...demographics will make the country permanently democratic and progressive.  GOP using every page in the book including gerrymeandering and voting fraud to keep in power but the day will come when the dinosaurs die.

US was where California was 30 years ago...same demographic shift...same reactionary grasping of pearls.
History has shown over and over again that predictions based on the conventional wisdom is usually wrong.

It's not conventional wisdom...it's history and math.  Go back to the 1980s and the California was going through the same cultural debate that the country is having...we had our own anti-immigrant era with Pete Wilson and 187/215.  California was solidly Republican between 1952 and 1992 (exception of JFK) and then it wasn't...now the GOP is almost gone.

Orange County was a GOP bastion and now, it's purple leaning blue...it will be solid blue in a few more years. 

At that time, prayers and thoughts to those old guards.

I can tell you this — there is certainly a difference between normal Americans and MAGA clan represented here. For instance ,

If the New York / Southern district Epstein case proves Bill Clinton is a child rapist, normal Americans will turn against Bill Clinton

But if the same Epstein case proves Trump is a child rapist, Trump supporters will turn against the SDNY ...

And Fox News / drudge / breitbart will provide ready made permission slips in form of new conspiracy theories so these crusty old supporters can merrily continue believing what they want to be true instead of actual reality
