im amazed that even here on ATS there is a red and blue crowd...come on now, im basically still a kid and i can see through the charade....you people are a lost cause...

liberals this, conservatives that, either way youre still getting FUTA by the same people every year.


Thank you for your post. I don't understand it either. You would think that the average member would be smart enough to realize what you have stated. We are being played against one another as citizens so that we remain divided and easy to control. There's the conspiracy, we're constantly at each other's throats using formerly innocuous terms like conservative, or liberal which unfortunately have become nothing more than slurs.

We are letting TPTB win while we fling poo at each other.

I'm sick of it.

I'd also like to add that the original list and topic for this thread is wholly unnecessary, an exaggeration and inflammatory with little to no point. It's not useful or constructive to anyone. This type of thread divides people. It simultaneously preaches to the choir and unnecessarily irritates the opposition. It's childish behavior.

And your point is ?

Seems this sure ruffled your feathers a bit didn't it.

It only ruffled my feathers due to the reasons I have already stated.

Seems like the only point to your existence on ATS is to get a rise out of people. There is very little point to upsetting people with no purpose... and this thread serves no purpose to either side of the political argument.

I have held my tongue for four years. All you do is divide, belittle and prop up your rather extreme views. Contrary to your belief structure there aren't Democrats, Republicans, Socialists, Communists, etc. in Washington there are only Plutocrats that care very little for you or I. There is a growing number of people who don't subscribe to the rather banal and skewed talking points of either party. For us we look to the left and see nothing but short sighted, tree hugging hippies handing out money; we look to the right and see nothing beyond bible beating, greedy, power hungry individuals set on taking us back to the dark ages.

You want to see positive change? Start talking to people as if they were people. Stop seeing a good part of the population as brain dead libertards. We are all Americans who want to see positive change. Neither party is the change we need, and we certainly don't need people who go out of their way to bash people who happen to have different opinions. That is not conducive to progress as a society, or as a species.

We don't need more plutocrats, and we certainly don't need people who purposely inflame every situation they are thrown into to get their personal political message across.

Kind of like an Obama sticker on a Prius, we get it already. We need people ready to have intelligent, thoughtful discussion about the problems we face as a nation. Not walking, talking, stereotypical caricatures espousing the hackneyed points of view of either party...

Well I can agree to some of your views yes.

But I will continue to expose the corruptions and deceptions as I see them.

Please keep commenting and see if we can attract the philosophies you describe.

It would indeed be a breath of fresh air.

Thanks for responding.

real sure about that are you?

Most of that malarkey is coming from Progressive sources isn't it.

The Progressive agendas sure sound different in comparison to just about anything that wants small government.

you're describing hipocrisy, not liberalism. I can apply most of those points to my Socialist Revolutionary country.

Are you really trying to expose corruptions or just one side of it? Out of the 48 something threads you started just this month are you trying to say the right has done no wrong because you sure don't seem to have anything to say about them. One could say you have another agenda other than what you claim.

I always enjoy right wing propaganda.

Then again political shills propably make good money. I Couldn't find a salary for it on glassdoor.com.

I'm wide open to suggestions.

Make some topics and I will respond.

And besides, the true Conservatives don't want much to do with government on any large scale at all.

If you talk about American Republicans, well they, on a national scale overall, are Left of Center and use many Progressive policies.

Only some select localities might have true Conservatives running things.

Thank you for your response as well.

It was respectful and courteous.

There are many people like myself. I feel that many of them don't even bother to speak up as they don't feel that there is a nation for people who don't agree with the direction either party is headed which is why I tend to be a bit more assertive when expressing myself.

I don't think one can grow without confronting, listening, debating and occasionally arguing with those who have substantially different world views. With that said, you fit the bill for me. As long as we can agree to keep our tempers to a minimum, and our mutual respect high...I look forward to having glorious debates with you in the future.

See you around.

there is no actual left and right....there are plenty of people who subscribe to these fake factions, but the people running the show (the government) don't....they're in it together, manipulating the people, to keep them distracted, while they do whatever the hell they want..

I agree with the sentiment. The longer they keep us divided, the longer the roots of the plutocracy grow.

Me thinks your idea of where the middle is, is pretty far right of where it actually is.
