Points from the video.

1) We are all self deluded monkeys when it comes to politics.
2) Politicians (on both sides) that appeal to our inner monkey are more successful.
3) If you paint people with broad labels, they will use it to gain immunity from any real criticism. Basically if you are going to call someone a racist in any case, then it really doesn't matter, and it only makes sense to take the wildest most sensational position since you already paid for it with the broad undeserved label.
4) The executive branch is already broken from a steady decline of congressional oversight. Trump isn't likely to do any worse than his predecessors.
5) Lasting changes in government come from negotiations, not packing the government branches up with a single party, and ramming things through (cough Obamacare). If Trump is indicating that he will anchor his deals with extreme positions as a precursor to negotiations, that will be a huge change as to how politics are typically done.

Great vid vid YYW.

How recently was it that you had your avatar set to a picture of Hillary Clinton?

More or less the reasons you gave me for leaving the Republican party in the first place.

Why do you like Trump more than Clinton?

Trump is an entertainer who is being paid to dismantle the GOP. Follow him and you will be on the road to disappointment and grief.
