You may be a tad nuanced for this forum...

Wow. Brutal dude. And close to the bone. Hopefully, it will not be an extinction level dynamic, for us.

And the ONLY thing standing in the way, is the collective power of Americans, to piss and moan and vote.

Kinda scary, eh? ;o)

Did you know, there was a Russian Submarine Commander, who refused orders to launch nuclear missles, because he didn't think blowing up people, was the best answer? It turned out, he was right. We had not actually launched on the USSR.

It seems, ther are people of sense, all over the world.

I'm not sure why you would hate Russia, but there are very good reasons to hate Putin.

We now live in a world where the MSM promotes conspiracy theories and Alex Jones reports the news. Let that sink in.


This made me laugh... And then quickly I began crying at how true this is... (haha/tears tears)...

Very rude and uncivil comment in response to someone who was asking an honest question and admitting that they didn't have the whole picture.

And I thought that Masons were supposed to be upstanding and friendly.

I am almost 50, so I grew up in the heart of the cold war. I remember the fear, the rhetoric, the "commies". But what exactly is the reason we are supposed to be against them right now? I get that they spy on us. (I think it's possible we do a tiny bit of spying ourselves) I get that they have a strong military and enough nukes to blow up the world almost or more times than we can. (many more than 2) And I get that they have a different political spectrum. And seriously, if I am missing something, please enlighten me, this is a real question.

It just seems to me that a country as large and powerful as Russia is, would make a much better friend than an enemy. I'm in no way suggesting we open any locked doors to them or share any secrets, just that we stop the un-needed hate rhetoric. Again, if there is a legitimate reason for US vs. Them, please explain.


I always challenged this idea when I was younger. All we learned in school was commie this, common that, domino theory, Russia = the devil. I always wondered and asked what is so bad about communism? Sure I can see where the polical differences lie, and even why it may not be a good idea for society, but why go to such lengths to fight against it? Probably comes down to money. It always does.

"They" want you to hate them so they can perpetuate these wars.

Fomenting war is in part how they continue to grow and maintain power.

Ha, he said 75% did NOT vote for Hillary? Really? Why does she have a bigger lead in the popular vote than any other election in history?

SMH.

Facts, they don't matter anymore.

I'm going back to my Choose Your Own Adventure book and just going to decide what's real for me:

You are clearly not very good at maths.
He's right, around 75% of people eligible to vote did not vote for Clinton.
Enjoy your fantasy adventure.

I will venture to say that many major world powers go hand in hand, pretending to hate each other; while behind the scenes colluding.

So you admit 75% of the electorate rejected Trump?

No. Try and use your brain and be less emotional. c. 75% of the electorate did not vote for Clinton, c.75% of the electorate did not vote Trump.
Rejection is a different matter. As of last week 48% had an unfavourable view of Trump (HuffPo), which is as close to 'rejection' as we know. Clinton is at 55% unfavourable.
Neither managed to get close to a majority of the electorate and neither managed to get a majority of the actual voters.
