You were duped by narrative and empty words into supporting a garden variety Republican president who’s been advancing garden variety Republican agendas.

I’ve said this so many times I felt like I was reading my own quote.

The vast majority of Trump’s actions as president (not his tweets, but his actions) have been precisely the same actions that would have been taken by a Ted Cruz or a Marco Rubio, had they been elected. You hate Trump because of his tweets, not his policies.

As far as foreign policy and war, there is nothing more or less “dangerous” about Trump than any other Repub……oh, wait………

The Iran assassination “adventure” wasn’t necessarily republican…..it was just simply the neocons being the neocons again, and they exist in both parties. You don’t have to have a long memory to remember that Obama/Clinton/McCain/Graham invented something called a “moderate Syrian rebel” (I still laugh every time I remember that phrase) that they were going to arm to facilitate the exit of Bashar Assad.

Result? Arms ending up in the hands of ISIS, 5.6 million Syrian refugees, 400,000 deaths, and Assad is still in power.

Good times, if you’re a neocon.

Well, at least, thanks to Russia (mostly), ISIS out of business. So, there’s that.
