That works for me!

I don't know - The amount of attention you provide to a particular one would suggest that they are indeed your favourite, Maybe not your "preferred" one though...

That reminds me of an old Richard Pryor movie, Brewster’s Millions. He started a campaign for “None of the above” and won. Too bad it would not work that way in real life. It might get a few politicians to rethink their greed.

He got away with money he stole from students in Trump University.

He also pocketed $250 million claiming to fight false claims over voter fraud. The authorities found out he has been investing the money and pocketing the dividends. He's been asked to return the money.

The height of stupidity to give away your life savings to a greedy billionaire but MAGAs need to learn the hard way.

And conservatives aren't guilty of it?
In this case, you have cultish adulation of Trump by his worshipers that I've never seen with a progressive President. That goes way beyond your average groupthink.

Is "Perhaps both sides are non-independent thinkers?" so difficult to understand?

And the cultish detestation of Trump by the "anti-Trump" worshippers are at least their equal in relation to groupthink...

Of course there are non-independent thinkers among both liberals and conservatives, and both have their share of independent thinkers, as well.
Anti-Trump sentiment cultish? I seriously think not. Many of the Anti-Trump crowd are genuine fiscal conservatives of the Republican party, or who had formerly been Republicans.

Huh, the same people who can't stop posting about Donald Trump are posting dead horse and sheep emojis; hard not to see the irony there.

Um, no. Simply conscious people who hate the guy for being the criminal dirtbag that he is and always has been.

Every party has plenty of nuts, most of us don't let them live rent free in our heads, or post constantly about them after putting them in our avatars and signatures. I could easily spam this board with Democrats suck threads just from what comes across my Twitter feed, but that would be boring and a waste of time, kinda like these endless Trump bashing fests y'all seem to enjoy so much.

Those Dems who believe those 9/11 conspiracy theories are obviously insane, and most liberals know it. I've never heard the 2004 crap, and so I have to think few Democrats actually ever believed such a thing. That Stacy Abrams might have won the election in Georgia could have been a reality if it hadn't been for voter suppression.
The thing is, though, the majority of Republicans say they actually believe the idiocy that Trump had his victory stolen from him. I can't think of a single time when a majority of Democrats believed in something that is as verifiably false or patently ridiculous as the conspiracies the right is currently having convulsions over.
Why so sensitive for the criticism of the Trump worshippers (which aren't all Republicans, by the way)?
