You obviously have no problem with this country having a massive central gov't funded by higher taxes on your business and having a SF radical a heartbeat from the PresidencyWhat liberalism are you talking about? Because you come up with bunk conclusions has nothing to do with liberalism. Logic says that if you posit something but have nothing but speculation to back it up, then it will fail.
For the 200th time already, I don't share the same fear that's been instilled in you with all of this "radicals!!! shersherlists!!" nonsense. I do get a kick at how easily you fall for all of that fear mongering. Conversely, I don't think Trump means the end of the US as we know it. You have this habit of painting things in only black and white; ignoring the successes and failures of presidents of either party. Why you fail at so many arguments, is you assume that conservatism is the only correct ideology, but it has its failures as well as seen throughout history; the old adage of "too much of one thing is bad" applies in this regard. We've seen economic successes under Republican and Democrat presidents, and failures as well. Same goes for a variety of other issues.
As much as you'd wish this country operated as some kind of hive mind, the truth is it doesn't; and in many ways we're better for it. Had those who bucked the status quo never existed, many of the changes we now enjoy would likely never have come to pass. You need both liberal and conservative views; people have varying views of issues across those two spectrums.
