Trump has challenged my own principles of not supporting any kind of neo anything but down your road lies Chula, and that accomplishes nothing but preserving the status quo in perpetuity. There will always always always be a lesser of two evils that will matter and sometimes you get a Trump who really matters, but you also have to swallow the hard pill if you want anything but that status quo.

But I'm not gonna pretend like I'm not hoping beyond hope that his SCOTUS nominee gets denied but thems the breaks.

You're not a terrible, awful, talk radio fan, throw-him-in-the-gulag conservative by any means, but you got a bent. Nobody who fronts so hard for personal responsibility even to the point of appearing illogical to themselves and deep down inside they know it can be a liberal or even a true independent. I don't think you're gonna be one of those losers who "go Republican after they age out of their youthful principles" but I think your core is more conservative than anything else.

Though I don't think this will bother you either as being lib, con, or independent doesn't seem to matter to you.
