But Obama, but Hillary, Trump is playing 537306937272D chess, you're a triggered snowflake, very fake news, typical emotional libtard, you're just mad
Hillary lost - get over it, you should respect the president and give him a chance - I think I got most of the usual excuses out of the way.
"Lock her up."
"No more regime change."
"The buck stops at Trump."
Hope & Change 2.0. I remember ATS after Obama was re-elected. The forums were heavily left-leaning but after awhile,
It fizzled out. Sanity, and rationality returned.
Operation Paperclip. North woods. The Tuskegee Experiments. Project Stargate. Gulf of Tonkin incident. Sinking of the Luisitania (sp?). 9/11.
The same government that's been allied with Saudi Arabia for decades. The very same government that doesn't audit our privately owned banking-monetary
institution. The same government that will lock you up for having some weed on you, but says it's okay to buy alcohol/cigarettes at every gas
station/grocery store that big-tobacco and alcohol can get away with (did you know they purposefully target black communities with roughly seven times
the amount of alcohol/tobacco advertisements?)
ATS used to complain that "they're coming for our guns," constantly ringing the alarm bells about how us gun owners are about to have some
entity/agency kick our doors down and confiscate our guns. I'm still waiting.
Now many of these same people are the ones telling me that I need to respect the president, give him a chance, and are always there to say "it's
better than Hillary!," although many of the things Trump has done, in fact, is the same thing Hillary would have done.
But ATS has shifted to the right-wing, and this will, in fact, fall on deaf ears. To those who are open to listening - thank you.
I've never had a popular opinion around here. There were a few heavily left-leaning Obama supporters (quite a few years back) on here I would
regularly engage with. I was always wrong, racist, and had no idea what I was talking about - but I didn't mind. I'm not here to be the popular voice
for meaningless stars and flags.
When Obama was being praised, I reminded his staunchest supporters of Fast and Furious, his legacy of being groomed to be a (s)elected candidate from
day one to fit an agenda at play behind the scenes, that his continuation of conflict in sovereign nations is a continuation of the previous
administration, that has campaign promises and speeches were meant to dazzle and wow, but many just didn't care to listen.
Trump supporters have no idea how strongly they resemble Obama supporters, I think it's outright ironic as all Hell but it makes sense. Both liberals
and conservatives crave the same thing - government.
Against all information, they both share the sentiment that this nation - the United Statss of America - cannot possibly succeed, be safe from threats
domestic and abroad, without continually voting for their federal government. And not only that, but by only voting exclusively along the lines of one
of two partisan ideologies that represent a perfect paradigm.
