I have mentioned before that I live in a DEEP red district. Confrontations with MAGAts are
frequent. In a crowd, I often remind myself that more than 3 of every 4 of the people around me voted against Obama twice, voted for Trump in 2016 and wish all people with my views could be "gotten rid of".

I have managed to survive emotionally primarily because I have believed that, nationally, I was a part of the majority---"the good guys". Today, I have watched maybe 30 minutes of TV and have heard that the impeachment investigation hearing failed entirely to "move the needle" of public opinion and that at least one Democrat FROM A BLUE DISTRICT has changed her mind and now opposes impeachment.

For today, I just ****ing give up! I'll be back, but right now I am having a hard time seeing why I should give a shit ! It would be a hell of a lot easier for me if I just replaced my anti-Trump stickers with "Keep America Great---Trump 2020!" and maybe a Dixie swastika flag. I'd fit right in to my community!

ANYONE in Congress who does not vote to impeach this SOB need not waste their time with "'splainin'"; they are complicit in his crimes.

Let it ride.

39. Didn't the numbers go up BEFORE the hearings started? I say start new rounds of impeachment hearings every few weeks!

8. Don't give up

I too get very distressed with each DAILY outrage from Republican criminals and traitors. But I know in the long run that Trump, at the very least, will not be re-elected. I don't care what the polls say. The only poll that counts is the one held on election day.

So here's a thought to cheer you up. When our new Dem president gets sworn in come Jan 2021, he will put in place a cabinet of decent, honorable, virtuous, law-abiding men and women. All the self-dealing criminal Trump appointees will be sacked. Justice will indict some of the Trump criminals for perjury and obstruction. Science will be back in vogue. Climate change will be addressed. and much much more.

Such a platform for the DNC will assure Republican majority for decades.

12. I live in a state full of deplorables.

I can't even put stickers on my car without worrying something will happen to it. They steal the signs out of our yard, they leave nasty notes on our cars. The weird thing is there is a higher percentage of people in this state on disability and "relief" than most any other state. They hate socialism though.

Fox news is to blame, totally.

Take a break I have to in order to keep fighting ignorance.

13. Go on Twitter and beat up some MAGATs or point out that they are obvious bots. It will make you feel better. It always works for me!

16. Hope this helps to cancel the lies tRump keeps repeating.

New @CNN poll: More than 60% of women now back impeaching Trump and removing him from office.

May: 51% for impeachment and removal.

October: 56% for impeachment and removal.

November: 61% for impeachment and removal.

CNN: Hillary 98% certain victory in 2016.

20. I live with a deplorable. She's 85 so I won't throw her out.

It wears on my mental health, though. 4 years I've opened my house to her out of duty. Hearing Fox News going on in her room, knowing she drinking from the well of hate, amplifies the pain I feel. Knowing she goes to her white repub church where the magats congregate to reassure themselves they are god's chosen... well, that makes me sick, too.

 :thatsright: who's the hater?

Put a block on Fox and OAN.
When she complains, play dumb and say you’ll call the cable company.

Hey, your house, your rules. If she has to get her news from somewhere, far better for it to come from literally any of the countless other channels.

21. Like you I live in a deep red part of my state and there are days I hate to go out and deal with these right-wing nuts I live with. Every new person I meet I have to wonder if they are a MAGA or a decent person. It's not fun but the good thing is at least I now know that many of the people I once believed to be decent aren't and I have put them out of my life, who needs racist idiots as friends. Maybe some day the hateful Trump fever will break and at least some of them might regret what they did and what they became or maybe they won't as for me I will never waste my time on them again. Take a break from them and rest up because we are in for a long fight to stop America from becoming Nazi Germany.

It's funny how many of teh DUmpmonkiez live in a 'RedState'.... it's almost like... they are the minority...

22. Trump's Impeachment * will live forever

And those Senators who vote not to remove will be vilified in the history books. That is a fact. Hopefully we will get to see immediate retribution on those Senators by their loss of their seats. BUT regardless, their tombstone will read what they did NOT do instead of what things they had done in life.

28. Gettin harder to care

I have been a Cowboy fan for 50+ years. The last 20, with the oligarch takeover, has taken a toll. Every second there seems to be hope, it gets crushed from inept, egotistical leadership, (Dictitirship). Put in lackeys and ass kissers, (every coach since Johnson), and tell your followers we are the best in football, because me and my cash.
Tired of soul crushing let downs. The DOJ stay today on the judges rulings yesterday after a stunning 200+ page explanation of the rule of law, the constitution and 3 equal branches of Gov. Makes me, again, sick and ashamed. Time and again, a strong glimmer of hope to end this hell, and the executive, Judicial and legislative GOP senate, show just how lost we are. For gods sake, Fox host cheering on Putin, no laws apply to anything trump, what the hell did I serve for. But, as I have remained loyal to the Cowboys through all the heartbreak, I remain loyal to the oath I took. I will not stand down over frustration, I will fight until the end. For my daughters future. What the hell else we gonna do. We need a little Kurdish, Hong Kong and other citizen's courage to end brutal regime takeover. If we could get in the streets like we get in line on Black Friday to buy China shit we can not afford, we may create a little noise. Any bets on stabbing someone and shootings on Friday over a slightly newer TV, to see Fox bigger and clearer?

35. No kidding.

Went out for cocktails with two friends both Democrats. A local we all know came over and we start chatting. Then he say “I’m sick of this impeachment bullshit” and nobody says anything. Then I say. I’m sick of all HIS bullshit. The ****ing criminal can drop dead right now. One of my friends nods in agreement. The other says.”Tell us how you really feel.“
ARE YOU KIDDING!!! That’s how anyone with any sense feels.

Yeah I need a break too. Happy Thanksgiving.

41. My district is slowly starting to come around.

But we're still deep red. Just Sunday while at Costco I saw a shirt that said "I Stand For The Flag, I Kneel For The Cross", another shirt that had a cross super-imposed on an American flag, and then my personal, um, favorite was a shirt that said "Drunk Wives Matter". I mean what doesn't ooze class than that?

43. think of it more like flying under the radar. I hope that more women

will quietly vote democratic, and not tell their magat husbands what they did. Keep on, but you can take down those anti Trump stickers. Don't want you to have people throw rocks at you. That is why votes are secret. To allow people to oppose their neighbors without consequences.

Good heavens, what a drama queen! I've lived over 40 years in the SF Bay Area and have managed to have a perfectly happy life. 3/4 of the people in my county voted for Hillary or someone other than Donald Trump. I've had a coworker who could not say "Reagan" without appending an expletive. My billion-dollar-corporation employer, in 1992, hosted a Bill Clinton speech during work hours (attendance was not mandatory). I've had a coworker who raved about Neocons and PNAC.

Big whoop!
Facts don't matter to DUpipo

Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

I don't think the frail old gent should worry about being part of any majority.

I think he needs to worry more about being one of the good guys, majority or minority.

So redstatebluegirl lives in California. Because California has the most (total & as a percentage of population of welfare recipients and people in this state on disability.
