I have a facebook account linked to it's own email account that I don't use for anything else. I opened the email account using a pseudonym and then used that to open a facebook account using another pseudonym. I don't 'friend' anybody or exchange photo's, none of that. I only use facebook to look something up that I can't find anywhere else for example: I went into a big box hardware store to ask about cabinets and was told that I needed to log into facebook to look at the different options. Stuff like that. Also, I follow an eagles nest and others who follow that nest post videos (eggs hatching) on facebook that I want to see. In other words, I use facebook in a very limited fashion and they have ZERO data about me.
If you don't think Trump is the worst, you're still in the fog of the Trump cult of personality. Once the fog clears you'll see it all and that day is arriving one straw on the camel's back at a time.
I don't know what your problem with Gerald Ford would be except maybe the pardoning of Nixon. The first time I voted, I voted for Ford BECAUSE he pardoned Nixon. The country was in turmoil and I felt that Ford put an end the misery by getting Nixon off to San Clemente and out of the evening news.
I've regretted that vote since because I realize now that pardoning Nixon was bad for the country in the long run. Now Presidents think they can do anything in office and get away with it. I think Trump is going to turn that notion around. The thing about Ford I dislike the most is that he was part of the Warren Commission which was nothing more than a cover-up of the Kennedy assassination conspiracy but I didn't realize any of that back in 1976 when I voted for him.
But there have been other bad ones, Harding was terrible, Grant was bad but none of them created the Nation threatening chaos that Trump has and none of them were ever under investigation for what could very well turn out to be treason.
The Gay rights issue has always been a vote LOSER for the Dems but they pursued it anyway because it was the right thing to do. They lost a lot of middle of the road and Christian Democrat voters over it.
The election cycle we just went through was a freak. You'll never see anything like it again and it's done untold damage to the Republican party. Trump has been and will continue to be the worst thing that's ever happened to the Republican party.
All signs point to a big turnover in Nov. Better hitch up your trousers.
Abortion is one of the greatest vote getting tools the GOP has ever had. The GOP can count on you and all of the other anti-abortion minions to march to the polls and vote GOP because they constantly tell you that if you vote for them they'll outlaw abortion. They won't. They never will.
Why do you suppose it is that when the GOP holds not only the White House, but BOTH Houses of congress, you don't hear one little peep about doing what they've promised you they'd do which is to ban abortion?
It's because they know that KEEPING ABORTION LEGAL means that they can CAMPAIGN AGAINST IT over and over, election cycle after election cycle FOREVER, because you never catch on. Decade after decade they lead you around like you've got a ring in your nose and get you to vote GOP with the same old lie.
Here's the other thing: THINK for a minute about what the real implications of an abortion ban would be. It would create huge social upheaval. Pretty young middle class white girls would start dying again from back alley abortions, and the mothers of those girls would be RIOTING in the streets. The bodies of every single one of those dead girls would be hung around the necks of the GOP AND the EVANGELICAL movement and the Republican party would cease to exist - forever.
Of course the GOP leaders know this, which is why the LAST entity to actually bring about an end to abortion is the GOP.
