My car analogy.

Republicans are like Japanese cars and Democrats are like German cars.
This popped into my brain yesterday.
Republicans are slower to move forward in technology and development. like the Japanese.
They don't try and re-invent the wheel and take a measured move forward.
Their ideas are a little older but still seem to work
Its cheaper and more reliable
To maintain them are cheaper.

Democrats are like German cars: They seem to come up with new things we didn't think we needed.
Their technology and development are futuristic and sometimes don't work or need more time to work.
Its more expensive and less reliable.
To maintain them is more expensive.

I thought it was kinda funny but true.

No. Republicans are like rep ford f150s and Democrats are like blue ford f150s.

Trump is like a tricycle with one wheel missing, no handle bars and covered in shit.

Politics is bullshit for the masses. Idk why people give a crap and spend so much time discussing it and getting involved, that time can be spent with family or freelance work to make more money or enjoying a hobby like cars or mountain bikes.

But to each his own...like listening to clueless idiots talk past each other on national TV

And you are a cry baby who can not get over the fact that Trump won, even though you live in Canada. Every thread there is posts of you hating Trump. Get a life man.

Meh, unlike you I've known who this douchbag is for decades beyond what you saw on the apprentice. I've always felt this way about this looser.

Most of his supporters only know him for what they saw on a reality tv show. In my opinion it's very similar to the people who idolize Kim kardashian lol

Talk about people who need to get a life!

Greatest comment I've seen so far today. I pay attention to whats going on around me but seldom get involved when politics are involved. Pigs may wrestle in mud and shit & I'll take notice but this doesn't mean I'm going to jump in with them. Let them have their fun making asses of themselves, I have shit to do.

I have had business dealings with his companies. No issues whatsoever to report. Don't know the guy and couldn't careless about him.

I don't idolize him, and the fact that I live 5000 miles away makes it even less relevant. I just find pathetic that someones wastes their free-time so moronically hating on a guy on every single place he can find. To me it is just the epiphany of absurd. The guy can cure cancer, that you will still hate him, and try to feed this B.S. to everyone else.

I don't usually post here, but since I come from time to time, just to see what are the thoughts of American citizens on the future of the country (compared to what I see happening, as I have deals in US), I had to waste this 5 minutes to remark about you. The only positive is your obstinance to hate on the guy. Congrats, but my initial remark still stand. Go find another more productive hobby

He's making decisions that have long lasting impacts on our country. That's why WE care. Because WE live here.

Federal judges as 1MOREMOD said. Supreme court picks. Regulation changes. Middle East policy. Immigration policy. Whatever. Take your pick. Much of what he does or doesn't do can have long and profound impacts on our country so we should pay attention and we should care.

Close but not quite right.

Democrat = City Bus. Because we should all suffer equally, for the same price, and let someone else control our fate.

I don’t think “caring about” is an apt description of what the loon from Canada was expressing. I don’t think you think so either if you’re being honest.

"concerning himself with" would have admittedly been a better choice of words than "caring about."

I guess even a Brazilian can see that it’s not appropriate for a Canadian to be calling our President, duly elected by our citizens, a douchebag. And I guess I agree with the Brazilian. I’m a little surprised how US citizens on this board are ok with foreigners insulting our President the way they do. To me it’s like someone insulting a member of your own family. Even if you insult them yourself you circle the wagons when outsiders do it. Not the case here, obviously.

I think that just goes to show you the wide-spread lack of respect for the man currently in the office. Not unlike the widespread lack of respect for the previous president.
