Why I dismiss many criticisms from partisan points of view

Here is a post from a long time ago about this.
Why don’t you just admit that you like playing partisan politics, and that it really isn’t about policy. At least be honest.
As for my commentary on “The Donald” and other politicians. I volunteered my assessment and who I was supporting and who I was not supporting in February 2016.
I have given many criticisms of Donald and the other candidates on YouTube. I hold myself accountable by making my opinions public and unchangeable (via youtube). Because so many people that give political opinions rarely own their opinions. This is the problem that I have with these people criticizing the new government in the USA, for doing the same things that Obama did in spades, and they did not offer any criticism to or for Obama (if you did, PROVE IT). I think of a partisan political supporter or voter as someone similar to someone who is a die hard football fan, spending all of their free time and extra cash supporting a team, that is getting rich from their support, but not really doing anything really productive for the fan. Supporting these career politicians, just because they give good talking points that align with your world-view does not mean that they actually support you or your world view. They are just appealing to your emotions, so that they get re-elected. Barack Obama was certainly proof of that.
(I lost control of those domains for a few years, but I recently got them back, however you can see the early 2000’s and even as early as 1999, that I was very critical of the right, and other establishment politicians, and I always have been)
