. At least when it comes to speech that is hateful, degrading, condescending, etc. I am not speaking of calm, well mannered words said from either side


Do you think calling Democrats assholes is being calm and well mannered? It's trolling pure and simple. Playing right into the hands of those that want to destroy America with divide and conquer tactics. Is that what you want?

I'm a registered Republican btw but you aren't winning any converts to your way of thinking. Hypocrisy seldom does by using the same tactics you accuse others of using.

assholes indeed...disagreements are one thing and name-calling and trolling is another.


People take thread titles so very seriously...

It's actually a little pathetic. A thread title is supposed to grab attention & interest & being controversial will get people to click on it. It's becoming an epidemic to let thread titles get you so riled up despite the actual content.


I know all that and I too use provocative titles in the threads I start but I try and stay away from trolling and insulting a group of members just to get a few stars and flags from like minded ideologues. Insults seem to be tolerated here more than they used to.

I once got a reprimand and point deduction for calling someone a "mook"....I guess times change.

Bi-partisan delusional fantasies.

Meanwhile, the politicians (on all sides) are laughing their asses off all the way to the bank.

... with your money.



If this isn't the greatest tragicomedy theatrical of all time, I don't know what is.

Did not truly intend for my title to be attention grabbing, I was frustrated and wrote something I would not typically.... Hence the rant forum.

I don't dislike Democrats. I don't favor Republicans. I don't support the division of people... But the divisions i do see is often online, different forums where people just want a voice... And in my experience often those people are degraded and called out in terrible ways... The people are the Jerks, and maybe the political affiliation does not matter but often the Jerks align as Democrat. That was the whole premise of my topic... Not to further a divide, but to point out a correlation I see when it comes to those very loudly keeping the divide, and their political affiliation. I would very much like if someone could tell me I'm wrong and back it up. Or simply help fix my perception, if indeed my perception is skewed or biased.


Also, let's keep the psychopaths in DC out of this. I'm not talking about them, I'm talking about every day people.

Ahh I just mentioned this, let's keep the guys in DC out of this. I'm talking about what I run into on the street, about what I see online. My personal experiences with real people, the 99 percent.

I feel like if we started a revolution, and anyone in the group said " in the name of God, let's take our nation back!" some of the left would go against them for PC reasons alone. But.. Maybe my perception is skewed, or biased. Maybe everyone is equal parts nice and kind, and equal parts condescending and rude.

It's all a matter of long term conditioning & our species only knowing a singular system of ego & materialism. This generation didn't stand a chance.

Agreed. I've tried to get away from some of it.. I want an off grid, buried house.. But there's not one other person I know yet that would be interested in collaborating in such a project. Too many wrapped up in materialism, in popularity, fame, money, and whatever else. My family included. I'm not saying I'm higher minded but I definitely would give up this electronic filled life in a heart beat if I wasn't leaving behind others I care about.

Yes, it's amazing that we all experience different things within such a fairly narrow band of being, isn't it?

Your subjective experience, by definition, is true for you, and you alone.

You're even explaining your position by basically saying "hey, this is just me!"

I wonder though, if you really aren't trying to take a partisan position or create political reactions, why you felt you needed to share your experience, here, in the type of forum that this is.

I mean, we're strangers for the most part. I have to wonder what you hope to accomplish, no disrespect intended.

No offense taken! Sometimes when I get overly anxious, upset, frustrated, I need to express myself. Rather than push this onto someone I know, I post it on a forum that absolutely no one has to read, nor reply to. I don't have a journal, so I simply write out my thoughts on the rant forum. Do I often feel bad for the tone I used? Yes. Am I glad I feel I can come here, have some support, and have others talk against me, making me realize I was just being dumb within that moment? Yup!

Is my perception skewed because I see republicans as cold blooded reptilians? Of course it is. These are hard, bitter times. There were big winners and losers in our economic crash. There have been big winners and losers from years of wars. Our leaders are impotent because of us being so divided. With all the gerrymandering, they have no choice but to lie, lie, lie to win office.

Fair answer.

The flaw in our system is that it allows for "professional politicians" that have no sense of service to the People (or even the Country) but are instead only in it to promote their own power and wealth ...

... And that's every Democrat and every Republican from President to Dog Catcher.

I hope you worked out your issue.

Best,

You see more liberal stuff being forced down your throat than conservative stuff? That's because, no matter waht you say, you apparently 'lean' to the Right. Therefore you're more sensitive to points of view that differ from yours - those from the left. You want see more conservative crap shoved down your throat? Watch FAX. But, if you happen to agree with most of the stories on FOX, you want realize that what you're watching is conservative crap being shoved down your thoat. You'll jus think it's Fair and ballanced reporting. (Hint - It's not).

Is that your perception of individual Americans, or of things you see on TV or agendas you see pushed on a larger level? No one on TV, no one in Washington represents the average civilian. I a talking about every day normal people, from jobless, to poor, to middle class or small business owner. I've had very negative experiences when it comes to liberal ideology being spat at me.

Wow. You folks aren't listening very well, I don't think. First, it was this person's own experiences. Who are you to say it's right or wrong, conservative or liberal? It's personal opinion and experience and unless you lived the same thing, you can't really comment, huh?
I don't see the OP comments as right or left, just a rant (that I strongly agree with). So, rant!
Most liberals don't want to admit their hatred and most conservatives don't want to admit their narrow mindedness. Unfortunately, hatred and narrow mindedness is rampant on both sides...and in the middle as seen here.
The fact is, the poster is correct. You do, in general, see much more hatred spewed from the left than the right, at least in my experience, as well. Why can't you just listen to the poster, agree or disagree without being so negatively judgemental? That's part of the point... everyone is allowed to express their opinion until it disagrees with mine. Hypocrits!

In my opinion it ebbs and flows. Depending on the time of year and the news in current events you can see influx of conservative idiots or an influx of progressive idiots. The only common denominator between them is they are idiots repeating sensationalized rhetoric.

I see really stupid stuff spewed by people who claim the right, conservative side, on TV. From rape cannot cause pregnancy, to insisting that trickle down economics is working just fine. I don't hear the general public where I live agree wit these statements, though and I rarely see such statements violently argued online - though I admit it has happened! I am just talking what I experience the most of personally, what I see, and have for a couple of years now.

Thank you for understanding this rant xD I do wish I could have altered my original post bit to express my more level headed thoughts, so people could understand I'm not attacking a group, simply stating my experiences and desiring discussion about it.

I think you meant to say Liberals in your title. John F. Kennedy was a democrat and while the majority of the far leaning left have lost their way, I would take a TRUE democrat over a TRUE republican any day of the week.

I understand and get where you are coming from. I was just offering my counterpoint of what I've seen over the years.

I am:

1) Pro Gay Marriage
2) Pro Legalization
3) Pro Choice
4) Anti Illegal Immigration
5) Staunchly Anti Socialism
6) Libertarian
7) Agnostic
8) Anti Public Education, Dept of Energy, Dept of Transportation, Public Unions
9) Anti War
10) Pro Free Market - Anti Corporatist- Anti Banker
11) Anti Terrorist & Oppose the Zionists in Israel

I've come to the conclusion that both Republicans and Democrats are INSANE in their own ways. The Left is more "loony" because they thrive off of emotion and are hell bent on this country going into third world status, accusing everyone of racism, and want freebies for all, and are CLUELESS about finance and economics....overall they're like little insane children.

The Republicans lick the boot of Israel to the point you would think the U.S. is a province of Israel, want endless war on EVERYTHING, and obsess over "God" and morality to the point of being ludicrous. But...the Republicans at least can act like adults most times, which I why I can actually listen to them...but they soon disappoint with their obsessions.

Both Parties are a joke. The philosophies and extremes of BOTH sides are pure evil and chaos. I've had enough of both in reality.

Where are you going to see this type of material, deadlyhope? Unless you're actively seeking it out I don't believe you're seeing anybody post " F**k Christians because they say abortions = hell ".

Let's just say you're right. That liberals are the true monsters of our society annoying everyone to death with their straw man opinions that you posted. What do you want done about them? What would you want liberals to do for you specifically so they wouldn't annoy you so much?
