I was sincere. I didn't push you. I was giving you respect as a "responsible type."

Here's what I said:



Then those of you who are responsible types should be making threads and hitting social media denouncing these things.

I think it makes responsible sense. It would go towards making things better, if that's what you truly desire.


Yes, I read what you said. Why do you assume that I haven't made comments condemning political violence on my social media? I've certainly done it here, and done so historically. Why give me the counsel that I should make threads about it when I regularly weigh in on threads that address the subject, and address it in the most absurd terms?

And, let's be honest here. Do either of us believe that political threads on ATS are going to make a difference in the world?

I fought that battle for almost four years here. I advocated for truth, for evidence, for rationality.

I didn't change one person's mind that I know of.

If you didn't mean offense, I will take your word for it. I'm all about avoiding these kind of garbage interactions.

Are you saying that every "leftist/liberal/Democrat/progressive/etc." has always responded to you that Illegal immigrants are really legal?

That's what I don't get with some folks ... I haven't seen ANYONE here make a claim like that. Nor have I seen anyone say that if you believe that our laws should be followed that makes you racist.

So see ... I get very confused when I read things like that. Your posts tell me that you're a bright and cogent thinker. Yet...

You're perfectly fine to make broad sweeping statements about "liberals" but I'll bet (and we have had this issue if I'm remembering correctly) that you really don't like being called right-wing, even when you're espousing right-wing rhetoric.

Liberals are not all the same. More than that, some that you think are liberals are not.

Not everyone is on a side.

Sorry to butt into your conversation.

It really might change a persons mind. It might give a different view. It might make it easier for some of us to defend "snowflake dems" as not being all snowflake dems and call out our own respective party line towers when they broad brush some of you... and likewise. We have to be the controllers of the rhetoric and control our parrots.
Youre actually typing a lot different than you used to. I truly WANT us all to merge together as Americans but hold our own beliefs and do what we feel is in the best interest of the country... I truly do. Even if we dont agree.. we can find ground that we DO agree on. We can exchange ideas and work together. Yes, I dream of it. LOL! There are several dems on here I thought were wackadoodle that really arent, it was election hysteria which effected many. LOL! We MUST have you all call out your crap folks and the right MUST call out theirs. ALL of us individually must disavow those who claim an ideology, yet have ulterior motives. Im a centrist. In a rotten mood Im imperialistic. So what? I know I love my fellow countrymen regardless of their views.. and hope for a more uninted front to squash all radical , violent, divisive, bs.. and the people who keep it going. It will never go totally away, but it has to be chipped at constantly.

a reply to: Advantage

The America I grew up in advocated differences. We took great pleasure, my Republican friends and I in high school and college, debating with each other. Sometimes, it got heated, sure ... but almost always, at the end, we could come back together and say, well, you've got a totally different opinion than I do, but I respect your right to have it.

We were proud to be different, but we were more proud to be the same: Americans.

Fast forward 35 years and that is mostly gone completely from society. I have theories about why and how, but that really doesn't matter at this point. It's our reality. What are we going to do about lt?

Yes, after the last several years here, I had become a hardened partisan with the worst of them.

When you see vapid insult after vapid insult presented as reasonable debate, you get tired of it. You start using the buzz-words and catch-phrases too. And if you're naturally competitive like me, you do it with impunity.

Let's stop thinking in terms of "our folks" and "your folks" ... let' start thinking about simply being Americans again.

At the end of the day, that, along with dealing honestly and accurately with each other, is all that matters in my mind.

I wonder who will be the lawyers that will take their cases and pay by whom.

Is going to be interesting, 200 for the price of one.

Wait a second so fox isn't controlled by the ptb.......whoa it all makes sense now. I can't believe I ever missed the picture. Oh and I am going to to guess that you will accuse me of a "Fake News" watcher. Though Mr. Orange thinks the enquire deserves a prize for revealing the truth. a reply to: TruMcCarthy

We know.

They are tree-hugging snowflakes with grenades.


And they're all alike, aren't they?

Anyone that doesn't toe your political line is your enemy?

Pfft.


The left set the rules. Why not play a round by them?

The problem is that they fit into the liberal agenda so are not denounced. They are in many ways supported.

This is true, people can't fathom existence outside of a false "binary-party-system"


Liberal is just a go-to pejorative

a reply to: OccamsRazor04

wait a minute there, I suggest you learn some truths before spreading falsities

1. anarchist and "Black Bloc Tactics" do NOT follow the "Liberal Agenda" do you know anything about anarchy?

2. Liberals denounce us all the time, in fact, they believe we were "Paid agitators" trying to delegitimize their "peaceful Liberal Resistance"

So, the Right says we are paid by Soro's (False) and the Liberals think we are paid by the Right(False) to discredit their 'Resistance"

You guys don't even realize when your thoughts cross-over
