18. Why do conservatives assume that Black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing by the left rather than by our own experience?

The ridiculously short answer? Because they keep voting for politicians and leaders that promote programs that have been shown not to work; programs that don’t help them, and in the long run hurts them. Yet they keep voting for the same programs, and the same leaders. We throw more and more money at the problems they want fixed, but there’s no sign of improvement.

And black people that think outside the box, and try to persuade others to try something different? They’re traitors; Uncle Toms.

If that doesn’t sound like brainwashing I don’t know what does.

17. Also, does it bother you that tiny #s of richest people have the same wealth as bottom half of entire world pop?

Not at all. I don’t care what or how much other people have. That’s their business, not mine. It doesn’t affect me, and quite frankly, it doesn’t affect you either. The whole idea that we should care what others have reeks of jealousy.

The fact that some people have nothing, isn’t because someone else has more. It’s much more complicated than that, and taking from the rich isn’t going to solve the situation. It a situation that doesn’t need a solution.

16. How can a conservative square the funding request for the wall with past demands that spending be offset elsewhere?

There are things that the Federal Government is supposed to provide. One of those requirements are security. I don’t have a problem with the wall. That’s part of their Constitutionally approved jobs.

But, let’s offset spending anyway, by cutting programs not specifically named by the Constitution, for example, close the Department of Education, cut off all federal funding to colleges, and end government backed student loans and grants.

15. Why should we allow Bannon to wield power & influence?

Honestly, I don’t know much about Bannon. What I do know is that a lot of the hatred and fear directed at Bannon seems to mirror that directed at Trump, as well as Jeff Sessions, Rex Tillerson, Betsy DeVos, etc. Remember, everyone who voted for Trump is a racist, and everyone he works with is a racist.

I have, quite honestly, ignored the complaints and figured I’ll wait and see. If I need to be angry, I’ll save it for when the time is necessary.

Why do Conservatives only trust media that flatters current admin?

14. Free press is fundamental to democracy. So why do R’s only trust media that flatters current admin much like state run media?

Hmm. Let me ask a question. Why do D’s only trust media that flattered the past admin much like state run median, and disparages the current admin much like fascist propaganda?

Like John Hawkins says, there are essentially two versions of the media: the left bias and the right bias. I’d like to find a news organization that tells me the facts, and moves on. Don’t tell me how to interpret the facts. If I don’t understand, I look it up. I’ll interpret the facts.

There are varying degrees of flattery that conservatives will put up with. Personally, my favorite news site is Hot Air. They will call out the Trump administration for doing stupid things, but they’re a lot more reasonable about it. They don’t start riots. They don’t call for impeachment. They also point out the positives, unlike leftist media, who twists the administration’s words and actions with misleading narratives, i.e., fake news. They play loose with the facts. You want an example?

The MSM portrays the deportation of illegal immigrants as simply an immigration problem. That’s not the way Trump or his supporters see it. Immigrants are fine, and welcome, when they do it legally. It is those who do it illegally that we have a problem with. The Left’s systematic failure to differentiate between the two appears to be a deliberate effort to mislead the public on the true nature of the narrative. This is one of the reasons they have earned the label “fake news.”

People aren’t opposed to a free press, but they want the press to be responsible. The mainstream media has shown itself to be irresponsible.
