Majority of Americans Still Say ‘Merry Christmas,’ But Clinton Voters Far Less

by Warner Todd Huston | Breitbart
December 25, 2016

A new poll by WPA Research finds that when it comes to the Yuletide season, a majority of Americans still say “Merry Christmas,” as opposed to “happy holidays.” But the poll also found that Clinton voters are far less likely than Republicans to use the phrase.

Overall 79 percent of Americans still think “Merry Christmas” is the right phrase for that most wonderful time of the year. Meanwhile, only 19 percent prefer “happy holidays.”

But things look vastly different when the query is broken down by voting preference. Fully 93 percent of Trump voters said that they are more likely to wish folks a “Merry Christmas.” On the other hand, only 66 percent of Hillary Clinton voters said they prefer “Merry Christmas.” As a result, nearly a third of Hillary voters, 31 percent, say they prefer “happy holidays” over the traditional “Merry Christmas.”

A split was also seen when respondents were asked if they feel Christmas will be better this year over last year. Sixty-six percent of Trump voters said they think they will have a better Christmas than last year. In contrast only 31 percent of Clinton voters similarly felt that the Christmas of 2016 would be better. In addition, 27 percent of Clinton voters said Christmas would be worse than last year. Only nine percent of Trump voters thought Christmas would be worse.

    It is sad when a politition can influence what you can say and what you can’t. I have said Merry Christmas my whole life despite what anyone said to me. My motto…if you dont like it, dont listen.

  • Jim says:

    The Clintin-nites, are just evil, they spread lies like butter on bread, preach Hate at every corner, and are just plain miserable people. that is how they have been raised.

    This is the party that tried to have the Name and word “GOD” removed from the Democratic Convention in 2012. …. So no surprise here.

    But lets just say Merry Christmas any way, If they don’t like it, well that is their personal problem …… But I am not going to allow these misguided souls to interfere with my life.

    I am at peace with myself, and it FEELS GREAT!

    I am turning my back on those that choose to disrupt, be rude, and attempt to spread their hate.

    And when I see companies promoting bad behavior in their advertising I will do no commerce with such Businesses. I will vote with my dollars and NOT purchase any of their products or shop at their stores.

    To get a real change in our Country, Parents must become “Parents” and TEACH their children manors, respect for themselves and others, right from wrong and saying “NO” when it is in their best interest, instead of being weak and afraid they might hurt their feelings. THAT is doing more harm to them and your future will be a living hell because YOU FAILED as a Parent.

    I guess the Dumbocrats are still pissed that their candidate, after all their ballyhoo and “fake” leading polls, still lost and are giving everybody else
    a bad time as a sort of revenge. That is how Dewey felt when he lost to Truman in 1947. Turn about is fair play, Get over it.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, interesting, if true.

    Under oblamo, with the economy being so GREAT and the country being the best in decades (according to oblamo), and hitlery was going to CONTINUE the policies of oblamo, you’d think that 2016 Christmas would have been the BEST sense oblamo took over the WH!!

    I believe since the phrase “Happy Holidays”has purportedly been around since 1863 there is a time when I perceived that it changed from a rarely ….to be blunt if ever used ( ie while I’m not 150+…I am almost half that and until the Clinton Reign of PC Terror began I never got wished a Happy Holiday in my LIFE). So, it’s popularity in use has in my experience only been relatively recent. Now, is the phrase itself a ‘mean phrase’ per se ?? Obviously ,the answer is no…!! So ,the Left, who ironically start these attacks on the Traditions of ALL THINGS AMERICAN…wonder why it totally ‘tees’ the Deplorables off …. I can only accurately state my reasons…so here they are: The phrase Happy Holidays is intended to be a pseudo-intellectual replacement for Merry Christmas !! ( no offense to our Jewish friends ,whom while they are heavy on voting for the Democrat side, while Israel is treated worse than Cindarella, they are not even worthy of Democrat disdain or insults toward Hanukah! ). As anything that is preceded by the phrase ‘pseudo’ it is hollow, there is no intellectual integrity intended by the speaker in their conveying the ‘sentiment’ to the recipient.
    The fact is that Christmas Day, December 25th is a National Holiday. Christmas Day , is the ceremonial birthday of Jesus Christ…to billions He is the son of God!! To even more billions …that is EVERYONE IN THE WORLD he is an extremely important human being that had a major impact on the History of the world. It is not a Religious Holiday being glorified by the Government…there is no legal requirement to attend, support, or take part in any religious the ‘government mingling with religion’ argument ( as they typically are when scrutinized ) is 100% bogus!!
    So back to the “Happy Holidays!!” salutation…it is nothing more than a sissifying insult and indoctrination technique to rid the NWO of another long standing American Tradition. I say sissifying because the speaker of the phrase, obviously is seeking approval from an unseen ‘Bully’ who has determined that it is necessary to deny Jesus Christ of his place in History ….while the recipient of the phrase knows that you are denying Jesus Christ of not only his place in History…but to many He also has a place in their hearts and life.
    To those who observe Martin Luther King Day …do you tell his followers.. some non-descript insult such as “Have a meaningful multi-racial protest day!!” because Martin Luther King was both Black and a Reverend and the Constitution prohibits favoritism of one race over another AND the Left’s oft stated but which is in actuality a fake phrase…that there is a separation of church and state !!! See the Following, nowhere does Amendment 1either state or imply there is a complete separation of church and state…The Government cannot make a law establishing A Religion…. Christianity is not a religion there are thousands of denominations, all with their sets of beliefs …the Nativity is a scene common to virtually all of the are the ten commandments, the crucifix ,etc. …explain rationally the exact sect or denomination of Christianity you are ” Establishing” when one is on display??? Oh! That’s right YOU Can’t.!!!

    Article [I] (Amendment 1 – Freedom of expression and religion) 13
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of
    religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging
    the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the
    people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for
    a redress of grievances.
    My Conclusion…” Happy Holidays” is a fake salutation at best and an open challenge to a person’s religious beliefs at the worst , typically but not always said in a range of intent that extends from a meaningless apathetic blurb ; to an attempt to convey a nice but non provocative salutation; down to a PC political statement primarily intended to be neutral to non-believers and antagonistic to those who do believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God ( such as myself) . Regardless of where it falls in the range of intent it is hardly a worthy way of honoring the birth of the most influential person ever to have been born on this planet. So Non-Believers It is not the Christians that you insult …but the memory of Jesus Christ himself ….I know! I know! He’s no Fidel Castro…but hey some beings were actually born Perfect …and I don’t mean Castro!!! .

    you don’t like our religion then don’t come to our country. we don’t wont to change our ways to make you feel good .Its MARRY CHRISTMAS liberal retards like it or not

  • CharlieSeattle says:


    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

    I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2017, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great.

    Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere.

    Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.


    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I actually presumed you have as few liberal friends ( maybe fewer presuming you are in Seattle) as I have ..and if you do were far more concerned for their overly sensitive natures than I am.. Actually I’m glad I was accidentally punked . Happy Holidays!!! ( I know you didn’t fall for that one!!)

    I cow not to the PC, but to My God and Lord, it is Merry Christ-mas and Happy Holy-days….if they have a problem with it, I tell them to take their argument up with the Lord…

    1. Thomas Burlew says:

      Amen! I totally Agree with YOU! God Bless yOU!

    2. the whistler says:

      Blessed, you are consistently a very forgiving and understanding person toward your enemies, and by definition that is very Christian behavior….I am neither and have to work extremely hard at being civil to these anti-God Zealots on the guise that the Constitution demands “Separation of Church and State”….the first Amendment neither states that nor implies that… I believe this to be another Devil leaning lie to fool those who wish to appear culturally enlightened and tolerantly inclusive.. to those who are Elite Thinkers , constantly denying …at the absolute least that Jesus Christ is one of the greatest Historic ‘human’ beings to ever walk this planet ( looking at him from a purely agnostic viewpoint)…to the fact that billions of people firmly believe He is the Son Of God!!
      The Birth of Jesus Christ is a significant and irreplaceable event whether you look at him Historically, you look at Him purely Religiously as a Christian, or you look at Him from both perspectives. He is one of a kind regardless of your viewpoint. I am Christian and proud of it…I don’t understand the hate that gets directed at Jesus Christ in the hopes of shutting him out of the History of human existence… to me it only proves how much the Devil fears Jesus Christ and this persistence on the part of the Left provides additional affirmation that He is far more than any ordinary human being!!

      1. BlessedtoServe says:

        whistler, I thank you for your compliment, but trust me when I say, I am a sinner no different than any other human being. I have faults. I have the same weaknesses as another. What I try to do is ask, What would Christ say to this person? Would it be mean hateful words, or try to set the example of His pureness of heart…It does test me in the patience department, that is where I pray for His wisdom, I fail many times. I come to this in the Bible and it comforts me when these people speak in hate of Our Lord God and His Son Christ Jesus. John 15: 18 -25 The World Hates the Disciples
        18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ [a] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’ So let peace in heart realm and refer to this, it will comfort you and give you strength. Give all the Glory to God, for He did send His only Begotten Son to shed His blood for the saving of man’s sins. You know this in heart because God wrote in your Heart. Let God do His work in His good time. This is all that we can ask. Merry Christ-mas and Happy Holy-days…

  • Tiger says:

    Look folks we were well on the way to Communism, H and O Progressives and her plans laid out in the Leaks were clearly Communism. Controlling what the people know, we saw the video with Kerry saying if the Media doesn’t talk about Terrorism the people don’t know. We saw H and O lie about Benghazi. We saw Lynch and O try to scrub the Pulse posts and shut us down but too late, the people already saw the truth so it didn’t work.

    We know they hate Christians. O has made that clear. Hillary made it clear in the leaks they had a plan to infiltrate the Catholic church, wouldn’t be too hard with this Pope. So on and so forth. Wanting our water, wanting our land this is clear what they had planned.

    We are now saturated with Communist indoctrination and Socialist thoughts this O care, National Health care think on it. We are indeed a divided country “Republic vs Communism”. We been here before. After WWII we threw them out. They have to be stopped again. 80 in congress belong to the Socialist party all Democrats.

    1. the whistler says:

      Tiger, Merry Christmas!! I truly enjoy your passion…even on Christmas.

      . I observe/research a lot and I believe that you have condensed a very horrific complex Communist /NWO multi-pronged assault on our AMERICA into a very concise Christmas reality check!! You recognize that THEY will not rest or sleep until all people such as yourself are either dead or dying…I believe they know you and your kind will not surrender!!!
      If one truly knows , does not under estimate, researches and updates their application of tactics, knows their vernacular ( code phrases, words, etc.) thereby truly recognizing the enemy it makes it virtually impossible for the enemy to win!! That is why they are disciples of Satan/Devil/Beelzebub/Mephistopheles/Prince of Darkness and are pure evil. They have been proven in their own inter-party communications to lie,cheat,deceive,and use other variations of linguistic pirouettes to attain their Country destroying goals. while they simultaneously plot the demise of their own loyal trusting sycophants who they privately ridicule and hold in complete disdain!!
      From what I have read in posts you have written in the past you combine focus, concentration and have times…a very humorous way of conveying your point. Washington himself crossed the Delaware on Christmas Day in 1776 . Consequently an expression of Patriotic awareness is an appropriate gift to us all …I feel that what happened on 9/11/2001 and 12/7/1941 need to be remembered by all true Americans…they are as important to our survival as a nation as Christmas is to our survival as a Christian.
      With that said I wish you a Merry Christmas !! For without Christmas I do not believe most can appreciate the ultimate sacrifice it takes to be a Patriot in action. ……I believe by your writing above that you do Get It !!

      1. Tiger says:

        You write eloquently showing you are very intelligent and I am very honored that you think so highly of me. Yes I get it and got it after serving in Desert Storm as an Army nurse and in this war. I have been trying to educate people on many things since coming home and my family, praise be to God know the facts as we see them clearly.

        They have been hiding in plain site for over 40 years and we pulled out of the pit just before they were going to bury us and yes they know who we are. People like me and they had plans for us. Ever see the Lynch updated Potential Domestic Terrorist list? I will try to find it.

        O has put the final nail in his coffin with this situation with Israel at the UN. All over our allies are stunned by him and he is the first and the last president to ever do this, my guess the Democrats are waking out of their dream state under O’s glittering generalities and facing the ugly truth that he is not for America or Israel or Christianity and I see where they are letting O have it.

        Thank you again and I keep my eyes wide open and don’t intend to shoot myself in the back of the head anytime soon like some who went against Hillary this election. Merry Christmas to yo and yours also again thank you.

          I have a feeling Obutthole is about to become Secretary General of the UN…and his sniping at Trump, which I’m sure will continue, just to prove he deserves the ” Snowblower up the Kazoo” trophy he was recently awarded, will ultimately lead to the throwing the UN out of the USA !!!
          Always wondered where you served…You definitely saw some people in terrifically horrible condition!! God bless you for your wonder you don’t quit…you can’t …you know and have seen what they are capable of …ALL DONE IN THE NAME OF THE DEVIL PRETENDING HE IS GOD!! The devil tried that once before …and he failed…this whole conflict is truly a battle of Good vs. Evil…and the Left chose the wrong side!!
          You and your family have a great Christmas Season even ‘high energy’ types need to re-charge…there is a lot to get done and not enough time to do it!!

    2. dmttbt says:

      I want to say that we say Merry Christmas because it is Christmas. It is a day that traditionally has been celebrated as Christmas. The Muslim people have no trouble with their traditions, they pray 5 times a day and they don’t believe the right to pray should be had by any other religious organization. They all believe that all other people are infidels and it is their duty to eliminate those other people.
      What we have become is a nation who worries if a piece of legislation is democrat or republican. That should not be the point of consideration. The point should always be is this good or bad. The difference in the two parties is not the thing that should move concerns.The two parties have done nothing but demonstrate that they do not care about the people they are suppose to represent and the only thing that moves them is power and money.

I do not try to guess …..I wish everyone a Merry Christmas during the CHRISTMAS season and CHRISTMAS, not Winter, break.

  • bobnstuff says:

    If I know I’m talking to a Christian I wish them a Merry Christmas, my Jewish friends get Happy Hanukkah, etc. but if I don’t know there religion I use Happy Holiday. There are just to many different holidays this time of year and many different ways to celebrate them. It’s called respect. How can I expect them to respect my faith if I don’t respect theirs.

    1. Jack Burns says:

      Christmas is the only NATIONAL HOLIDAY. Don’t fall for the Progressive guilt trap by trying to guess someone’s religion. For decades no one was offended. It has gotten worse since OBAMA was President. How are you ” respecting” another persons faith by saying Happy Holidays? We celebrate a National Holiday …CHRISTMAS. There are more holidays in February. Do you wish your friends Happy Holidays in February??

      1. bobnstuff says:

        I don’t guess their religion but the subject tends to come up so I know the faith of friends. I don’t care if the holiday is a national holiday, it’s important to them so I honor their religion. I don’t want to limit my best wishes to just one holiday. The February holidays aren’t bunched together. Do you wish people happy Presidents Day or Happy Washington’s birthday? What do you do about Valentines Day? I have friends who celebrate Christmas a week later, do I only wish them a Merry Christmas on December 25th? In trying not to be PC you end up being silly. If it’s their birthday wish them happy birthday. Show you care and honor their faith. Merry Christmas to you and have a Happy Holiday Season.

        1. chw2000 says:

          Dear Bob, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. But you are “spinning” things here. When a Christian wishes someone a Merry Christmas, they are also saying, I believe in Christ and wish you every thing that is good. Your “Happy Holidays” is pretty much denying Christ and “the reason for the season”. Say what you want, that’s your choice, but your explanation is not “respect” for other religions. I see it as your fear of having someone of a different religion not respecting you be cause you believe in God and Christ. There are times when it’s ok to not be PC. Get some courage Bob. Your friends might “respect” you more if you do.

          1. bobnstuff says:

            I do not limit my wishes to one day, I wish them a blessed day everyday.

        2. Jack Burns says:

          If you “don’t care if CHRISTMAS is a National Holiday” you seem to want to intentionally ignore its great significance. That is an unhealthy, disturbing and frankly, an insulting attitude especially to Christians. You End up babbling and looking for excuses not to wish people a Merry Christmas during the CHRISTMAS Season and CHRISTMAS BREAK, not just on CHRISTMAS DAY!! Most other holidays in December are very minor holidays and certainly not National Holidays. Kwanza for example, was recently invented and has taken on the significance of Festivus. Hanukkah was originally not a Jewish holiday and is the only Jewish holiday not mentioned in the Torah in fact it wasn’t until the 1920s that Jews in the United States started giving more importance to that a holiday after watching Americans celebrating Christmas.

          If you don’t know what someone’s faith is and you wish them a Happy Holiday then how are you honoring their faith if you don’t even know what it is?

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            And Kwanza isn’t even real, made up by blacks!

      Hey bobnstuff, its CHRISTMAS! nuff said!

        Winter Solstice one of the oldest holidays is the reason we celebrate Christmas in December. Most religions have some kind of holiday around the solstice.

        “Some sources report that Theophilus of Antioch (circa 171-183) was the first to identify December 25 as the birth date of Christ. Others say that Hippolytus (circa 170-236) was the first to claim that Jesus was born on December 25.

        A strong theory suggests that this date was eventually chosen by the church because it aligned closely with a major pagan festival, dies natalis solis invicti (birth of the invincible sun god), thus allowing the church to claim a new celebration for Christianity.”

        This year the US government will observe Christmas on the 26th since Christmas falls on the weekend.

        It’s not the day or what we say to each other but the wishes of good will and the renewing of our faith that counts. We need to be Christmas people 365 days a year. You can wish people Merry Christmas all you want but if you don’t have the love of Christ in your heart what difference does it make.

      This is America, we play by our rules, it’s MERRY CHRISTMAS, even to you bobby!

      You are so full of hate. I wish you the peace of Christ this holiday season. my you feel his love and know his joy. Merry Christmas and may the new year be kind to you.

      1. gerald Hughes says:

        Actually, I am only half full, I hate all liberal dem bloodsuckers and wish them nothing except a long excruciatinly painful death.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          You do know that Christ is a liberal, so were our founding fathers so I guess you must hate both. I still wish you a hope you have a blessed Christmas.

          1. gerald Hughes says:

            Fing cretin you liberal scum never stop do you?

            Are you trying to tell me that Our Founders and Jesus Christ were liars, cheats, thieves and perverts and bent genders.
            I have little in the way or religion and expect that some day I will pay the price for my errors, but, God will be the judge of that, not you scum.
            I don’t know what could be worse than burning for eternity but brother, I don’t want to be there, when you find out, what it is, I really wonder if you will have the testicles to look into God’s eyes and say, “you were wrong and I had to correct what you said.”
            I hope that I die some months before you or after you, I really don’t want to be there when you find out, what is worse.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I fear you are clueless as to what a liberal really is or what they believe. I also fear you have broken the word of God and you will need all of Gods grace in the end.

          3. gerald Hughes says:

            I don’t have to know what they believe or what they are, I look at the results, it is the same, over and over again.
            You don’t get to decide if I did or not cretin, only God does.
            Don’t worry about God, you will have to get past us before you get to meet God.
            Dec 2014, 11.4% o the people polled, thought that their state should secede from the union.
            Dec 2015 23.9% of the people polled, thought that their state should secede from the union.
            Dec 2016, 44% of the people polled thought that their state should secede from the union.
            You garbage have about a year left.
            You can believe that when it starts there will not be enough liberals left to fill a phone booth.

          4. Shelly Shannon says:

            Please educate us. Who are liberals really because all we have experienced so far is liberals trying to take away religious liberties if you happen to be a christian and the rights of anyone who doesnt believe the same as they do? We have experienced the hatred by liberals for voting different than they do. We have experienced liberals trying to hurt and frame Trump supporters by burning down churches and threatening police officers. We have experienced liberals putting up signs that Trump supporters are not welcome in restaurants or certain liberal establishments. We have experienced liberals threatening to throw their children out of their own houses for something as innocent as a mock election at their school. We have experienced liberals putting up demonic pentagrams next to nativity scenes. We have experienced liberals beating and pulling trump supporters from cars, and we have experienced protestors waving hate filled signs calling us natsi’s. And worst of all no liberal has stood up and denounced any of these behaviors including the most evil liberals of all…Obama and Hillary Clinton. So explain who liberals really are.

          5. bobnstuff says:

            First, I know more people that you would label liberals that are very strong in their faith in Christ and spend their lives doing his work. They defend all peoples religious freedom not just those that agree with them. They are in fact defending your rights to believe as you wish and not have someone else force the religion on you. Go look up what the word liberal means.

            The First Amendment was written to protect everyone from the conservatives who would create a theocracy. It was meant to keep the government from imposing any single religion on the citizens.

            As far as the liberals not supporting Trump, look at what the man says and look at his actions in the past. It’s said you can tell a tree by it’s fruit, what has Trump’s fruit over the years been. Of all the buildings with Trumps name on them how many are schools or churches? How many hospitals have his name on them. How much public housing has he created? If he builds something it’s purpose is to enrich himself not anyone else, not even his share holders. His roots are not in the soil of Christ. He was hard pressed to remember what church he went to and in fact claims to be Presbyterian but the Church he says he goes to isn’t a Presbyterian church.

            As far as the liberals rioting go check into the facts. Most of those stories are misleading or out and out lies.

            It’s been the liberals that have been fighting for your rights all a long. You just can’t see it.

          6. Shelly Shannon says:

            First of all, liberals do not fight for the rights of conservatives or republicans. I have not talked to one liberal who hasn’t told me that my faith and belief in God wasn’t a fairytale. I havent talked to one liberal who hasn’t called me a racist. They are not willing to even take our opinions into consideration. Whats funny tho, is when a liberal doesn’t know which political party i belong to they think completely different. And just what do you think Hillary Clinton ever did that wasn’t done for her benefit, like there’s a hundred-millions reasons that those things benefited her. Obviously you havent been around for the whole 40 years of her. And as for liberals standing up for my rights? When i cannot pray in public that is a right that has been taken, not given. When my grand children cannot say the pledge of allegiance at their school, that is a right taken, not given. When as a Trump supporter i cannot go into a public place without a death threat’ that is a right taken, not given. When I have an opinion about open boarders or abortion I am considered a racist or a horrible person for not thinking its okay to sleep around, get pregnant, then run off to kill the life inside, that is a right taken, not given. Despite all these things tho, I will think, say, vote for and do whatever I want to. I will stand up for my own rights. I do not need the help of liberals to do that.

          7. bobnstuff says:

            Since my pastor is a liberal, the pastor at my kids church and just about everyone I go to church with are liberals I would say that you are wrong about just who liberals are and what they stand for. If a number of people call you a racist then maybe you are acting like one. Just what world do you live in anyway that people attack you? Half my neighbors are Trump supporters and the other half supported Clinton and everyone still gets along. Just in case you missed it no one is for open borders that I have ever meet, they just want justice done. You supported Trump but you say you are against people sleeping around. Trump has done worse then just sleep around he did it while married, not just once but at least twice that can be proven. He even got one pregnant and left his wife to marry her. As far as public prayer it happens all the time but it can’t be government sponsored because of the First Amendment. Here are the guide lines for public prayer as put out by a liberal group. You will see that there is no one stopping you from praying in public.

            You also seem to have another thing wrong. Pro Choice doesn’t mean pro abortion but instead it means not having the government involved in deciding. Pro life doesn’t mean supporting all human life with many people it only means pro birth, once they are born they are on their own. The same people who claim to be pro life will punish children for being born to the wrong parents and in the wrong place. One of the major reasons for abortions is the fear that the mother can’t take care of the child. As a nation we like to punish the poor. I don’t think you understand who it is that are getting the abortions and I’m sure you don’t know that abortions are at the lowest rate since 1970.

            As I have said just what world do you live in, not the same one I do for sure.

          8. Shelly Shannon says:

            You just made my point exactly. You just stated that if liberals think i am racist then i must be acting like one. Why in the world would you assume i would be acting like a racist? My 84 year old handicapped mother just had her 2 caregivers walk out on her because she voted for Trump. When i confronted them about it their reply was, if you voted for trump then you are racist. They were never even given consequences for their behavior. All i can say is that you must live in a very tolerant state because here in illinois you dont have that luxury. And i wasn’t talking about being physically attacked. I Ws talking about being verbally abused. Ask other people on the sites if they are being called racists for voting for trump and see what they say. Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton both called us trump voters racists. Wow!

          9. bobnstuff says:

            I have found that all the racists I know voted for Trump,but not all Trump supporters are racist. One common thread I have seen in Trump supporters is they are anti something. Anti Clinton, anti Hispanic, anti Muslim, anti you name it but everyone I know that voted for Trump is anti something. Just so you know there is a pretty good chance Trump is a racist judging from his history. There isn’t anything in his past that would lead you to believe other wise. I can find no record of him supporting minority rights and in fact I can find no record of him supporting anyone’s rights except his own before he decided to run for president. I can find evidence of him the other way though. Three times he ended up in court on discrimination cases. I don’t know if you would call Pennsylvania tolerant but we are split right down the middle.
