Thank you to those posters who answered my request for suggestions. I read them slowly and carefully.

This morning, I am going to do one thing to try to control/corral my intense dislike for Republicans and conservatives in general, by saying the following:

Ben Sasse is one of the most conservative US Senators (Nebraska). He says so himself: according to his votes in the Senate, he says is the 3rd most conservative senator. OK, so he falls directly into the core of the 36-40% of Americans that I strongly dislike (I know, it's a lot - it' also the approval rating of trump).

But he said today or yesterday something with which I strongly agree: We can all disagree about what to do about the facts (that's the first amendment), but the facts themselves have to be established, they have to be certain, we have to agree on the existence of the facts. If we don't have firm facts on which to agree, then we no longer - as a nation - have anything in common and this divide will sink our "American experiement" as Sasse calls our nation. To find, define, establish firm facts, we need good journalism. Journalism is essential to our freedom, it is part of our first amendment, it is the expression of our freedom of expression. Then Sasse says that trump's (like some other posters on this board, I refuse to capitalise his name) attack on the media weaponizes distrust and is the enemy of the first amendment. I add: and the enemy of our constitution, and of our country.

So, that's it for today (and maybe for the whole week), I found something positive to say about a conservative.
