That is my theory.  The republicans absorbing the tea party and the democrats absorbing the socialists ultimately will have the effect of dissatisfaction for large parts of the voter base.  I see moderate and liberal republican's more like libertarian's  and more extreme left democrats more like socialists.  I think both Libertarian and green parties are going to branch away from the repub and dem parties and we will have at least four viable choices.  But of the two I would say the democrats have damaged themselves more moving left than the republicans have.

It's above and beyond time for the parties to fracture...

That said,i believe Libertarians and Republicans will be able to work together more closely than the fractured Lib/Dems...when playing "identity politics" said group will only hold together for short term gains,before eventually splintering into smaller and smaller groups of "but we deserve more than you,we've been wronged worse than you" type sub groups!

I think the days of "we are Americans,first and foremost" are over...

Yes, it's a big generalization.  Your products do not have the worldwide impact that ours do though.  Deny it.

Of course some US products have a worldwide impact somehow but the trade balance deficit, for example, between Germany and the USA is an indicator where the good stuff is made and, purchased.

I wish we could get one of the washer dryers that I used when I was in Germany in the 70's.  It was one machine that did both.  And the hot water did not come out of the spigot, it was heated in the machine as well.  Very practical for people who live in small spaces.  In the U.S. people never think of these things but some could use them if they had access.

These units dont play a role here anymore because the energy consumption is more than 1 washing machine and 1 dryer together. And, the water consumption is very high as the dryer use water as coolant.

when i was in Russia i was talking to a butcher at the market, he said the best steel for a knife is a ww2 German bayonet, he said no other steel can be sharpened to that point, and hold the edge as long,  he had several bayonets sharpened,  he would not touch any other knife.

Ahh.  Well it served a purpose for a while.  Thanks for telling me that.  I never thought about how they worked.

i have several Japanese  kitchen knives,  the steel there is good but not  anything i have not seen before,  the way they sharpen it is very different,  it's beveled on one side only,  and the flat side has tiny vertical groves, this way the knife basically sharpens itself, and the edge is actually a mircosaw.

I just thought of something I really miss from Germany, Snickers bars with hazelnuts instead of peanuts.  That is something you can't get in the U.S. that could be exported.

when it comes to food, most of the countries i've been to (few dozens combined) have food better than here, even McDonald in Russia and Ukraine is better than here.

My favorite kitchen knife I've ever had is the "as seen on TV" ceramic Yoshi blade. I've had that thing about 10 years and it still slices like a boss. 

As for the topic at hand I don't believe for one second that Nancy cares for minorities beyond their vote and her liberal values don't help them one iota but I also don't think she's a racist. AOC probably is though. She's also an idiot and grown from moss directly from the DC swamp. She denies that statement was calling Pelosi a racist. Yea ok. I do enjoy watching this party eat each other alive though. This party has zero real convictions. The only person in that party that seems to have any integrity, or I should say seems real, is Tulsi Gabbard from what I've seen of her so far but there's a long campaign season ahead so we'll see.

Who would have thought the Dems would accuse each other as racist.

I thought the GOP were the racist.:w00t:

It has been rather amusing to see them eating their own.  I hope it continues through the election.

When you see racists everywhere, sooner or later they will be standing right beside you.  It reminds me of children calling each other names that they don't know the meaning of.
