You could always try presenting your own research instead of being lazy.

I'm honestly more interested in hearing counter arguments to research that is plain sight. If you look at Trump's cabinet choices and you're not afraid of what the country will turn into, you haven't been paying attention.

Plain sight is not research, if you researched research then you might know that.

Well you believe what you want. Trump on the other hand has already proved through his cabinet choices that he wants to reverse upwards of 50 years of work starting with reversing a lot of what has happened in the last 8 years. If that's not scary to you, maybe rethink your own opinion.

seriously? you make a bold statement with absolutely ZERO, and i mean literally zero evidence and when i bite, it's my "lack of ability to research?" i'm not even necessarily trying to start an arguement, i just want to know why you would make such a ridiculous claim. if you think it's that obvious then please give me the specifics. what progress made over the last 8 years is so vital to the country that having it reversed will set it back 50 years?

Well let's see

Equal pay for women
Same sex marriage
Lower minimum wage
Women can't get help of raped

Yknow...like it was in the 1940s. The cabinet is full of rich white businessmen who has no political background.

damn dude you need to stop reading so many buzzfeed and huff post articles. what do you think trump and his cabinet are going to do, force business' to pay women less? i'm assuming you aren't insinuating that women are just naturally paid less than men because the wage gap has been debunked and explained many years ago.

the right for same sex marriage isn't going to just go away, if you really wanted to go on a point like this it would have been much smarter to use abortion, but that isn't going anywhere either, not on a nation wide scale at least. especially considering, as Anteater already mentioned, Trump used to be a democrat was actually pro choice on the abortion issue. with his flip flopping on both of these issues over the past should really tell you how little he actually cares about these things. he isn't going to make any changes with them, despite what the 'not my president' folks want to tell ya.

and here, read this http://www.politico.com/story/2016/1...arriage-231310

idek what that last point is insinuating but that's a societal issue not a presidential one so try again.

If more people read this book and internalized it we could have more legitimate political and socio-political discussion in this thread (and the world) without everyone feeling the desire to make sweeping generalizations on both sides of the political spectrum.

A lot of people will be hurt by this but as long as you're white and middle class you'll probably be fine

If we're on track to another financial crisis, and we probably are, there was nothing in Hillary's platform that really addressed the root of that anyway

this still isn't true women do get paid slightly less on average and are less likely to get a job than a man even when you control for the variable of men working more hours

Nobody on either side actually doubts this, that's why Republicans continually block Democrats attempts to pass a bill to address it
