Compare that to The Trump administration's latest move: Last August it announced that it would change the way the Endangered Species Act is applied, significantly weakening the nation’s bedrock conservation law and making it harder to protect wildlife from the multiple threats posed by climate change.

Like I said, I consider myself somewhat middle of the road, so I'm not happy with the policies of the Democrats or the Republicans. I dread the next election like I dreaded the 2016 election.
This is very interesting. It is why I generally stay away from politics. I just know what I refuse TO vote for. That is all I need to know. I cannot stand for certain things (taking from children, seniors, trying to remove women's rights, trying to take away rights due to sexuality) and if a candidate is in the way of these things that I believe are simply being human/caring/compassionate, I cannot vote for that man or woman. It's simple math for me even if politics in general is definitely not that black and white as you perfectly illustrated.
