ATS has become a real "breath of fresh air" lately! A sizeable minority of members take great joy in disparaging anyone who professes a belief in God, and disparages those as naïve who express hope for the future and a belief in our country and our values....AKA...patriotic Americans.

I am tired of tiptoeing around the factions of our populace that feel they have more privilege than the average citizen because of some sexual or cultural difference....as a Christian white male who believes in the Constitution I am at a loss to explain how I have become the personification of what is wrong with America and somehow abnormal . Maybe this is what Obama meant by "substantive change"?

Our media would have us become cynical and defeatist while living in a great and very privileged and powerful country. Media highlights the cultural differences that make us a nation in a negative way causing the weak minded to look down on fellow citizens for expressing patriotic sentiments. TPTB have orchestrated a PC cultural war on the average American using the media and the Hollywood elite to tell us that we should check our privilege and feel white guilt because we are not as evolved and relevant as them.

I sense this is all part of the "soft Socialism" that Obama introduced at the behest of his old 1960's radical mentors. This is the narrative of dissent, a constant reinforcement of a media created image of the USA as a negative force in the world filled with racist, misogynist, homophobic and xenophobic white people who are deplorable.

We now have Trump and his supporters as the target of these attacks from the Leftist "though police" who hide under the guise of concerned and caring custodians of some imaginary PC fantasy world. I support Trump, I support the U.S. and I support anyone's right to free speech and a difference of opinion on any topic but I am really growing tired of the ceaseless onslaught of MSM propaganda that is designed to destroy anyone who does not embrace some PC Globalist agenda....reminds me of why I don't particularly like Islam....their basic tenant is the same as the MSM and the Left........Submit.

When a person sees reality as propaganda, the Trump training is complete.

Pc culture is the result of our country enlightning. As time pass more and more will join in for a free just and democratic country exempt of racism, sexism etc..

As an american feminist man I have hope but it will be a long journey.

A socialist Republic United under God ans science is what I pray for.

I don't think that you are alone in feeling like a bastardized, demonized segment of the American population--Obama, his administration, and the DNC and its cohorts (like most of the MSM) have had about 16 years of practice and effort doing this non-stop.

Sixteen years ago, I saw myself as an atheist white liberal. Twelve years ago, I saw myself as an atheist white conservative (figure that one out). But, for the last eight years, I have come to find myself to just be an American--if I had to label myself in a similar way, I would be an atheist libertarian-minded white guy who just wants my personal life to be left alone from the burdensome control of government.

I have found my truth that government, although a necessary evil in a society and nation as large as ours, rarely does anything with the best interest of the average citizen at heart, so I want them to leave me and all Americans alone, save for the most basic services (which are spelled out quite nicely in the constitution and including the tenth amendment limiting what they can do [which is constantly ignored]).

Atheist. Libertarian-minded. White. Male.

Dude, I get it from ALL sides of the aisle, but what's really pathetic is that, on the occasions that I do discuss politics with people, most realize more and more that they are actually libertarian-minded as well, but are so caught up in labels that they keep perpetuating this constructed divide in our country.

It amazes me--people are more alike in how they see the role of federal government, yet allow themselves to be continually manipulated by the two-party system...it's the whole divide-and-conquer tactic, and it has been deployed flawlessly in our federal government for decades.

"I think society is changing in many ways. Some of them are positive and some of them aren't so positive. I can tell you one thing I am very terrified of, and you can think about this... I think that the continual careless pushing of people by left wing radicals is dangerously waking up the right wing. So, you can consider this is a prophecy from me if want... inside the collective is a beast and the beast uses its fists, and if you wake up the beast, violence emerges. I'm afraid the this continual pushing by radical left wingers is going to wake up the beast."

Thanks, I too have evolved into a Social Libertarian and a Fiscal Conservative. I too wish to be left the f**k alone. I have no problem with people living their lives in any manner they chose and tolerate any belief that doesn't threaten my existence. I support Trump because you go with what you got, my preference would be Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.

I am leery of adding Libertarian to the ballot, unfortunately too many people have been conditioned out of critical thinking skills and in the confusion would probably just hand future elections to the Left. The Left never sleep they are always there year in and year out "hammer and tong" carrying the torch of Socialist Totalitarianism.

It's not so much a complex as just a really bad radiation burn....radiating from the pile of sh*t that keeps getting dumped in my living room by the MSM thru my TV.

It's a good thing TVs come equipped with a power button so you can turn that stuff off, right?

Ha! Touché...and true.

But it's a fair complaint--we should be able to watch the news and expect at least some semblance of impartiality to come through the airwaves. Freedom of the press is great, until it all turns into propaganda and ideological spin (which it all has).

Bull#. The news has always had an ideological spin. Do you think the news was some paragon of reporting under William Randolph Hearst or something? If you don't want to hear or read it, you are welcome to ignore or turn it off, but if you are willing to dive into it you have to understand that there is propaganda within. And you need to know how to navigate it.

I feel like American schools need classes in critical thinking and identifying propaganda. It's better than the silly idea that all news is biased and therefore not worth listening to because of said bias. In any case, if I had children the LAST thing I would be doing is be teaching them to ignore the news just because and I would be VERY upset if they subscribed to that ideology. I find such attitudes intellectually embarrassing.

A lot of it does involve b.s. spin to manufacture all of this vitriol, but caving into it and incessently watching it is another story.

Believing that the entire "left" or the entire "right" are the enemy, plays right into the hand that the tptb are playing meticulously, and its working.

I am an American. Not a dem lib left right conservative republican.
