You agree with their platform, or their behavior? They've behaved exactly the same way since I can remember.

The environment? Why stop there? Women, minorities of any and every sort, children, anyone not wealthy, the economy. Yes, every single time.

Definitely not their behavior, but I'm a capitalist that believes that our personal liberties (free speech, 2nd amend, etc) are best handled by the individual. Not the state (ie If the trout are lost, smash the state). I'm a small government advocate, but that is kinda where it ends.

I know one thing, can't think of too many positive steps taken by Republicans for the environment since Teddy Roosevelt.

Yes, Peso is down. Pound is down. Euro is down. Kiwi is even down a tad. That means the Greenback is on the up and up...

So while making Russia Great Again, he actually is making US jobs in manufacturing go by-by real quick with a strong US dollar. Nobody buys US made stuff for export if the US $ is high.

Meanwhile, Mexico and nearly every other country will have an export advantage over the US by having weaker currencies that make exports a bargain....so again, the winners are China and every other exporter in the world....and not Merican jobs/manufacturing/exports. But hey, the strong greenback will make it real easy to buy cheap shit like Chump Ties made in China! Wall-mart wins....again.

You can't remember how different George HW Bush was from Trump? Reagan too for that matter.

Do I equate the president elect and his reality television based pandering to the Bushes and Reagan? No, he's his own unique brand, and I think his success is a reflection of the information shoveled by the "news" network and sites that grew up out of the Reagan/Bush era political operatives reaction to Clinton and Obama.

I do think the financial mess we have been struggling through is largely a result of the Republican effort to defund government and then complain about it's incompetency, largely the result of aiming to shift the tax burden off the wealthiest and open up access to tax revenues to private industry. Education, healthcare, military- three huge pillars of a sound country, the direction of a good share of the tax revenue stream. Is our country better off for privatization of these services? But look at the incoming cabinet- to me it looks like a downhill run the last 30 years for the Republican party.

Hell it was Richard Nixon that set up the EPA. At one point the party at least recognized some concern other than someone profiting.
