Since we have similar threads for both the LEFT and the RIGHT, I thought it truly fair to offer a similar thread for those often forgotten men and women whom consider themselves to be in the CENTER.

Now that Donald Trump is the 45th. President...What do you think about the behavior of those on both sides of you?

For example:
1.) Do you feel the Left has been acting appropriately, reasonably, maturely, regarding it's opposition to Trump defeating Clinton to become the 45th. President of the United States?

2.) Do you feel the Right has been acting appropriately, reasonably, maturely, regarding it's support of Trump defeating Clinton to become the 45th. President of the United States?

3.) How would you like to see either side amend their current behavior?

4.) Has current behavior from either side of the political table influenced you to move any closer towards either side?

Both sides are obnoxious and their behavior and attitudes have pushed me away from both. A pox on both their houses.

I think both sides have reacted to the behavior of the other. Rightly so.
Now it's time for both sides to grow the hell up and do what's best for the country.

1&2) Both side have proven themselves to be manipulative, lying, power hungry jackasses...typical of Federalists.

3) Both sides can go back to the Bill Of Rights and state's rights.

4) It has pushed me further into the center.

Someone please....just push the damn RESET button.

I was devoutly hoping everybody would just continue to ignore us in the middle, like they usually do, and let us continue to giggle and shake our heads at them. You ruined that for me


1 - no

2 - no

3 - I'd like both sides to stop worrying about their GD "side" and worry about the country

4 - no, it's caused me to build a moat and man the ramparts of Castle Shamrock

1.) Do you feel the Left has been acting appropriately, reasonably, maturely, regarding it's opposition to Trump defeating Clinton to become the 45th. President of the United States?

Absolutely not. But on the flip side, the sore-winner actions by many Trump supporters mirrors the immaturity and unreasonable actions of those on the left.


2.) Do you feel the Right has been acting appropriately, reasonably, maturely, regarding it's support of Trump defeating Clinton to become the 45th. President of the United States?

Absolutely not. But on the flip side, the sore-loser actions by the many Clinton/Sanders supporters mirrors the immaturity and unreasonable actions of those on the right.


3.) How would you like to see either side amend their current behavior?

I would like to see those on the left grow the hell up and act like adults and accept the reality that Trump is, in 20-ish minutes, anyhow, going to be their president whether they like it or not. Instead of continuing divisive vitriol and regurgitating/parroting the hatred (often times extremely unfounded) for Trump, they figure out a way to be part of the solution and start realizing that the goal should be working together, not the it's-my-way-or-the-highway mentality that permeates both sides of the political aisle right now.

Also, the progressive left (which is where most of the outspoken, immature protestors plant their political feet) needs to accept that they do NOT live in a socialist country, and that trying to hand everything over to the federal government is not the way our country is designed/prescribed to be, nor does it ever work out well when we try it.

I would love to see those on the right realize that, just because there are elements of Judeo-Christian ethics (watching a prayer at the inauguration right now) engrained in our nation, that we are not a religious government and that religious doctrine should not drive public policy. I want them to realize that tough talk and threats of hellish war are not and should not always be the foundation of foreign policy.

I would adore seeing both sides realize that big-money in politics is a terrible reality, and that instead of just talking the talk, I'd like to see those for whom they vote walk the walk concerning the abolition of crony capitalism and lobbying. I'd like both sides to realize that there are way more things in America that bind us instead of divide us, and I'd like to see more of that being the focus of concern. I'd like to see both sides pull their heads out of their collective ass and realize that continually voting in the same politicians into office (just with different names and faces) is THE main problem in American politics. I wish that both sides could grow a backbone and start putting up and voting for candidates that are worthy of running our nation instead of ruining our nation.


4.) Has current behavior from either side of the political table influenced you to move any closer towards either side?

I started the first parts of my life (about through the age of 30) being a relatively passive and apathetic liberal, then I actually started employing critical thinking in relation to politics (after I voted for Obama in '08 and realized that I made a mistake) and switched sides to being a moderate conservative. It wasn't until the election of 2012 that I started really looking into political ideology and realized that, being (for the most part) socially liberal and fiscally conservative and very freedom-centric landed me in the group of libertarians (not the party, just the ideology).

I can't imagine ever being swayed to one side or the other again, as I see major flaws in both their candidates and their official ideologies. I even differ with some of the Libertarian ideology, which is why I'm libertarian (little "L"). I see the jettisoning of such political labels being a very good trend for America in the future. I hope that it comes true.

Most people on the left or right of the political spectrum are average ordinary adults living very similar lives. They go about their days, many without thinking about or discussing politics. They have friendships with those of differing political views, and they very well may live in an area where their political views are in the minority. They've never protested the election or inauguration of a new President, nor do they openly voice any dissenting thoughts in mixed company.

In short, they are the majority of this fine country. Some may have not approved of Obama. Some don't approve of Trump. Either way, they make their way through life and focus on what they can control. Their own lives.

The examples of insulting protests, which have been ongoing openly since 2008, are not the left or right. They are the minority. They are the ass hats of both parties. They are the scourge of the left and right. Most likely, they aren't very good examples of human beings in their everyday lives. Some just want attention. Some, I'm willing to wager, didn't even vote in this election, nor did they in 2008 or 2012.

I am a social liberal, which I suppose labels me a moderate, since there are conservative fiscal concepts I agree with. Am I thrilled with the outcome of this election? Nope. Do I think the next four years will impact my life in a significant manner? Nope. I could be wrong, but it's nothing to get out and burn a flag (or a hanging Obama dummy, as was popular in 2012) over.

The Left: started this whole crap show when they threw a tantrum about Bush beating Gore, and then took to the internet to throw an 8 year fit, insulting people as often as they could for not agreeing with them.

The Right: decided to one up the left when Obama was elected, and spent 8 years being as mocking and condesending as possible. Meanwhile, the Left decided to ramp it up to match fire with fire.


I am wholly disgusted by the lot of them. So much so that I now am stuck in "cynical mode" for perpetuity. And it won't get any better, as social media continues to pigeon hole the public in their little echo chambers.
