Politics are never going to 'snap'. Left vs right, grinding on in perpetuity, fomenting endless division and titillation from the division. Huge system bonus when someone actually snaps, picks up a rifle and goes on a rampage. Otherwise meh, Washington is thousands of miles from my front door, I could give a rats ass what drama occurs on TV.

The Democrats want a civil war and are prepared to fight. I say lets give them one.

It is this that will bring civil war to the U.S.

This is only the beginning of what is to come.

I see martial law coming due to killings on the streets... Governors around the U.S. will enact it starting in the west, either in California or Oregon....

There will be blood in the streets and it will be the Democrats who start it and the Republicans will finish it.

I would not be shocked to see a sitting politician (a Democrat) who pulls a gun and attempts to shoot our president.....live on TV.


This is the laughable overreaction I was talking about. Do you actually go out into the real world daily and see people and things and talk and socialize? Or are you living in the sticks with a bunker full of guns and have convinced yourself we are on the brink of a civil war? It's in your head, seriously.

Most folks I know both socially or at work are neither ultra conservative or liberal. And none of them are hankering for a civil war. Some thing Trump is bold and different than the normal politicians, so it's a good thing, while others think he is just a buffoon.

You folks predicting war over this President need a dose of reality, I think this site, MSM, and tweetsville have seriously colored your view on reality into something else. The % of actual radical right or left is a very tiny % of our population.

I'm beginning to fear that the right has no tolerance for anything anyone else believes. Why else constantly bash the left without having meaningful discourse? I find it sad to see such a divide in America today when the real problem is corruption by both parties, and division keeps the people from voting for those who truly want to make change that will benefit the majority if not all. That's the game folks. Neither party cares who wins as long as you vote for establishment politics. And both parties are singing just the same old tired tune.

They really need to break and snap and leave behind the place where the left meets the left hand path.

Edit to add: They could begin the process by removing Nancy Pelosi. She has a business in Washington that she could tend to in her retirement called, of all things, Goat Hill Pizza.

After the release of the health care bill from the Senate, I don't think you need to worry so much about self-identified leftists.

Instead, I would worry about the millions of people who are on the losing side of the ACA replacement. They have nothing more than the power of their vote to fight back; it can be a potent weapon.

It MIGHT be the impetus needed to declare MARTIAL LAW.

Yeah those Nazis... total PC police... so inclusive of everyone, fighting for equal rights for all groups, pushing tolerance, and pleading for humane and empathetic solutions... No torture, no deportations, no hate toward gays or Muslims or any people of any race or religion... those snowflake liberals...

Or wait no... Nazis were full on hate, intolerance, authoritarian, white nationalist, torture loving, war loving, xenophobic, racist a-holes. That doesn't sound like liberals... Hmm.... sounds more like............right wing conservatives? Like... Alt-Right.... Like those alt-right guys who glorify Nazism?

What's needed now in the USA is a brand new third party, call it something like "Progressive Conservative" or something like that to split the middle.

After the election there should have been an internal war and a whole lot of naval gazing and self-examination in the Democratic Party, but that didn't happen. Instead they called for nothing but anti-Trump resistance, even for fighting and blood in the streets, but that whole narrative failed, as it ought to as there's nothing constructive or formative about it.

I think Hillary's insanity after the election poisoned the party, and now it's almost toast.

The Republicans needs to do a lot of soul searching. They won the election but at what cost to their own soul. They've rewarded the worst kind of behavior. They are people without integrity. But because they won, they think they're all good... and they ignore everyone shaking their heads. Republicans don't know how to inspire. They don't know how to lead, and they make the U.S. look bad when they're in power.

The only difference between the Nazis and the DNC is that the Nazis simply killed you. The DNC uses your special interest till it needs it no more, then will when they need you again....BINGO!...you are back. In the media...in the forefront.

Old people...then gay people....then a minority(choose one)....then abortion....then old people again...a cycle. The right for a long time has followed along but this election showed unequivocally how bad it has gotten. We have a man who every politician hated elected and we are upset as a nation? It is what most people want is the big finger to politics and a year from now when the rhetoric and people have moved on again, it will be something else the DNC and RNC hard core members will try to bring about but they will grow smaller in size...especially after the 2018 elections.

Seems to me you didn't watch the video which is a first hand account. It's obvious that you know nothing of history. Nazis used socialism i.e. Income equality free healthcare equal rights...sound familiar. The Jews were blamed for everything now it's the 1% white males to blame. So many similarites

They want to stick Democrats into FEMA CAMPS.

SMH.

I was talking about a plan to defeat them and bring sanity and thoughtfulness and integrity back to the seat of power and authority.

If the Democrats can't start fresh and new, then it's high time for a new 3rd Party in the US, which, even if it couldn't mount enough support to take the White House, could become a force to be reckoned with, enough to hold their feet to the fire and to make a difference by splitting the middle.

Something transformative and revolutionary needs to well up from within the divided middle.

The left/right paradigm of hatred, fear and loathing doesn't present any sort of solution.

That was pretty much my diagnosis. All political football is theater. I actually stopped watching TV news for the most part around the election. Enough is enough. There's only so much pyro I can take before I start to look around to see if the band can actually play.


The best thing about divide and conquer is that there is a ton of money to me made off both sides. Nobody on stage is interested in giving up the goose or the golden eggs.


I figure most of the fallout is going to roll downhill anyway. It's too expensive to put significant boots on the ground in Colorado. I'm going to ride it out for as long as I can to see how it ends. I mean, it's not every day you get to watch the growing pains of a brand new "age," right?


Just ahead (for anyone else bored with the puppet show): a Japanese company is now using a rudimentary form of weak AI to take the place dozens of white collar insurance agents and adjusters. I give the western world 15 years, tops, before water is actual currency and people who "work" sell hours of their body but none of their mind.


Gonna be a lot of trouble between now and then if we aren't real careful though. Don't look down.

I hope that the DNC snaps and some sensible people with an eye towards working for the common good takes over.


I don't think that will happen as the leadership already believes they are working for the common good.
