Oh, but on the contrary; I very much am afraid of the dark. The "dark" in this context is the liberal globalist extremism which continues rot out the minds of so many Americans. Say what you will, but that is the message which needs to get out, and stay out, in front of the masses. That is a 'dark' far more sinister than any lack of light.

C'mon man, you honestly believe that? You vacillate between weird seemingly self serving echo chamber posts and at other times seem genuinely interested in furthering the party divide discussion.

Is someone's mind considered 'rotting' because they don't believe in the same things you do?

I'm a liberal, and I could offer the same counter argument against conservatism and call it the 'dark plague upon mankind' and still neither of us would be right. I could claim conservatism is nothing more than selfishness couched behind the veneer of individual autonomy, but I honestly doubt that you are a bad person who isn't charitable in some way (and so I understand that my view of 'conservatism' is biased by my emotional commitment and through that understanding I can remove that component so that we can still get along and respect each other as human beings).

This continual rallying behind hyperbolic extremes of each parties values are so counterproductive to anything other than fomenting hatred and division. Does anyone on this forum actually think hatred and division is the path meant for mankind?

How was your original post different from a kinder-gardener laughing/sneering at another child they just beat in a game of tag?

LOL you go from this


My passion regards to America politics is making fun of Americans and their dumb ass decisions. Whether that's their gun problems and how they are happy to risk their children's lives just to feel manly by owning a gun


to this



Reeks of self-confidence that... you and your type sir are a cancer on this world and your attempts to divide people will ultimately fail, the people won't stand for it.


And you have the unmitigated gall to accuse others of attempting to divide people......WOW

You seem desperate for my attention for some reason and seem intent on involving yourself in my conversations with others, have I upset you personally perhaps?

I meant drama.

The OP is a classic drama queen rant like one would see on Jerry Springer.

You must be a "reality TV" buff...

...DRAMA...

Very astute observation, it is indeed some of both...by design actually. I don't know if I'd go for "weird" but certainly 'contrary' might be appropriate. So yes, there an element of both. Many pages back in this thread I have addressed why this is. Short of going back and digging those posts back up, a fair summary statement would be; sometimes you have to make a mess in order to clean up. Or, sometimes you have to start a fire to put out another, larger, one (it's a common forest fire fighting technique).

And, you'd be correct in that I am, in fact, genuinely interested in furthering the party divide discussion. I dare say I'd even like to foster a discussion which does away with the whole two-party discussion altogether, and moves forward to a more meaningful political process.



Is someone's mind considered 'rotting' because they don't believe in the same things you do?


In a word, no.



I'm a liberal, and I could offer the same counter argument against conservatism and call it the 'dark plague upon mankind' and still neither of us would be right. I could claim conservatism is nothing more than selfishness couched behind the veneer of individual autonomy, but I honestly doubt that you are a bad person who isn't charitable in some way (and so I understand that my view of 'conservatism' is biased by my emotional commitment and through that understanding I can remove that component so that we can still get along and respect each other as human beings).



We can. And thank you for saying as much.


This continual rallying behind hyperbolic extremes of each parties values are so counterproductive to anything other than fomenting hatred and division. Does anyone on this forum actually think hatred and division is the path meant for mankind?


I couldn't agree more! In fact, as much as it may seem confusing (no disrespect intended), it is actually the underpinning of this very thread. The idiocy of it all, and the counter-productive nature of it, the emotion.



How was your original post different from a kinder-gardener laughing/sneering at another child they just beat in a game of tag?




How? In some respects it is no different at all. It merely demonstrates the childish nature, and base emotional knee-jerk reactions, of many political discussions today. It is a cross-section, if you will, of society as a whole. But again, sometimes you have to start a fire to put out a larger one, to illustrate the futility of such arguments.

For my part, I'd like to think I've remained relatively civil through much of this thread, despite the personal insults hurled at me personally. Yes, I've been cavalier and in some cases perhaps even a bit snide (though not personal), but I've done this intentionally...because it's brought out that emotion...on all sides. When it doesn't come out, people will continue to harbor it. You and I both know this.

Yes, we do have to move forward, to move on, in my opinion. However, until we can put all the baseless allegations behind us as a whole this discussion cannot advance in a meaningful way. A good start would be cleaning up the media and getting them (ALL of them) back to reporting facts, and letting viewers/readers form the opinions, rather than having them form the opinions they feel society should have.

My .02

Best!

Left, liberals...you're losing!

You're losing "traction" with the American people.

You're losing "credibility"

You're losing "respect"

...and frankly, you're losing "identity", 'unity' even, as a party.

Bottom line; you're losing!

The lies have become too apparent. The over the top political zeal has become tiresome. Your trusted MSM networks have failed you...they lied.

Desperation and violence is all that remains for you. Burn it down, protest, murder people, act out...disrupt, stomp your feet, snivel and cry. You've LOST.

Sorry, but it's true. Your immaturity screams, your uninformed lock-step adherence to your socialist ideology bleeds from every pore of your being.

If it weren't for the violence, torchings, cities burning, lawlessness, gangsta and general thuggish-ness, it might even be comical, or sad even. But at the end of the day you have no sympathy. Your voice is but a lost whimper in the wind now, growing more distant by the day. Why is it you cannot see this?

You've lost.

And, honestly...it feels good! Why? Because YOU made it feel good!!

I think the left is leading by 4 points going into half time.Maybe you should put trump jr on the side line he's killing you're team... And maybe trump,his lawyer and the other son.. Just saying.

Jesus, you guys are delusional.
The Left went zero for four in special elections and you have the left ahead by four points?
You guys are just plain stupid, it's no wonder you lost.
