When Cheney said "deficits don't matter" he was right. Conservatives rarely mentioned it from 2001-2010. Then they were a huge deal to from 2009-2016, and now they don't matter again in 2017.

What do you think that deficit would look like once everyone in this country was dependent on the federal government? Its too big as it is.

So voting for Trump was voting for the lesser of two evils, if you are concerned with fiscal responsibility.

Also, the Republican Party fancies itself as the family values party, protectors of good old-fashioned Leave It to Beaver Americana. Millions of non-religious conservative voters view themselves the same way. Yet they voted for a man who dumped two of his wives for the mistresses he was banging, and openly admitted to walking in on teenage girls in their dressing rooms. Nice.

Sure, I can see that.

But again, Trump is the lesser of two evils. I mean I guess you could argue in the primaries, they could have voted for someone else, but maybe they did?

Only 24% of ALL voters considered themselves born again Christians (of which, 16% voted for Clinton), so by default, the majority who voted for Trump don't consider themselves Christian at all.

Like myself.
