This is why I think we need to find another trade partner besides China..... Its also why I am pissed Trump went after the EU instead of working with him to get Chine to play ball. Instead they will just circumvent the new rules.

Congrats on voting!!! Glad to hear it!!! I hope you continue to vote for the federal and local election!!! Also I would suggest voting for the best candidate instead of along party lines.

Nobody does this, because they believe in Good Guys and Bad Guys.

The problem is both parties see each other as either Good Guys. Democrats see the Republicans as Bad Guys and see themselves as the Good Guys. Republicans see the Democrats as the Bad Guys and see themselves as the Good Guys. Get what I'm saying? No matter who wins. We all lose.

This is the latent problem with all of this. And I'm getting pretty tired of seeing crap on social media about, "If you voted for the other political party, UNFRIEND ME RIGHT NOW, because you're soulless/evil/fill-in-the-blank!" I've also seen plenty of, "If you're an NRA member or a gun owner there is BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS and UNFRIEND ME RIGHT NOW!!"

Utter sheep. There's no other word for it.

It’s like people think one identifying factor is who you are. “OMG your a republican” or “OMG your a democrat.” How about getting to really know the person.

It's really not that simple anymore. Somebody voting for Trump is them voting against minority rights, against women and their right to choose what's best for THEIR bodies. You're voting against the future well-being of this planet. I have already cut off 2 friends and 3 family members who are Trump supporters. I refuse to have that toxicity in my life. If you're voting for a piece of **** human being who is going to do everything in his power to make life worse for anybody that doesn't look a certain way, what does that make you? Even if you don't agree with everything he does -- you are basically sending a message to people that you don't give a crap about anyone but yourself if you are a straight white guy. If you are minority or a woman, you are voting against your own self interest.

If you want to care about personal qualities over political leanings, you are horrible bigot and atrocious human being, because, political leanings overwrite human qualities and you can't be a good human being if you are Republican / Democrat!! /s

Going to such a diverse High-school and now College in California has made me hyper aware of these types of issues and how Trump is affecting different groups of people. Some of the coolest people I know on Campus are foreign exchange students from the same countries Trump is trying to ban. I'm gonna keep fighting for what I know is right and my younger brother and many minors will be able to vote in 2020 and we're going to be on the right side of history decades from now.

What part of my post makes you think I'm trolling? I'm not. I rarely ever post anymore as life has been pretty busy for me the last few years. So why would I come back to troll you guys? I am 100% serious. And I'm just trying to explain to you all how Trump has made things wayyy more complicated. With everything he has done, it is impossible to separate someone who routinely votes for him and is the REASON why he is able to do these things, from the person itself.

You talked about good guys and bad guys but it clear to most reasonable people WHO the bad guys are today. And it's not the people who want safer gun laws and protections for our planet (Democrats) Trump has unleashed a side of this country and a people you read about in History class.

I'm glad that the Democrats have some level of control over Congress back. Hopefully they can stop him from banning Trans people from serving in the military, as well as locking children up in cages.

You are either a troll or in dire need of some psychological help.

What I love about lefties and righties - neither side contain even an ounce of original thought. They always talk like some pre-programmed bots. Which gives an idea of what kind of people they are and how strong and thought out their convictions. I was thinking pretty much like that, when I was 15. But it seems idea of young people being mentally stuck in their childhood is actually true.

I suggest that you re-read you post bc you are nothing you claim to be. You claim to have gone to a diverse high school and college, but you all you have demonstrated is that you are closed minded and intolerant. You are condemn an entire voting population bc of the party or person they vote for. That is like someone condemning an entire race or country for the actions of a single individual or minority group.

You also appear to be uneducated on the travel ban. The travel ban is meant to be temporary and to prevent what happened in San Bernardino from happening again. The ban specifically targets radical countries. Now this ban could become what "Daca" has become and become a permeant fixture."Daca" was suppose to be temporary, but may become permanent. (I hope not bc it promotes the human trafficking of children.)

Also You claim the republican party is evil and anyone who supports it is evil, but what about the democrats with Clinton???? Bill Clinton who sexually assaulted an intern!!!! He admitted he did it as well!!!!!! You can call trump sexist but at least is not guilty of sexual assault. Also Clinton is the same president that signed NFTA which destroyed US manufacturing and destroyed the Mexican economy. Bill Clinton also passed TPP which has also killed our economy and promoted cheap chines labor. Clinton is also the same president that Re-pealed the "Glass-Stegal" act which caused the 2008 recession and housing crises.

Why do I bring this up? To make a point that both parties have extreme/bad politicians and people should not vote strictly for party, but for best candidate.

I suggest trying to be more open minded and tolerant when discussing politics and that goes for everyone on the forum!!!
