The problem with the country is that we have forgotten our roots.

We have become lazy and complacent. We feel entitled, and believe in a government that does not protect our interests, nor performs to our best interest.

The biggest problem with this country is that the majority of the people know this, but are not willing to make the sacrifices, not willing to give up the conveniences, and are too busy hating and blaming everyone but themselves for the ills of this country.

Our forefathers fought and died for the freedoms we are willing to sell for BS that will be a landfill within 5 to 10 years.

Why can't I just be free to speak, to kneel, to write, to fly a flag, build a statue, hold a rally, buy a gun, smoke some weed, say a prayer, sing a song or just express myself?


Seems no one wants that any more.
I'm just an old man without a party, with an outdated ideology.


Nobody is stopping you from any of those things. However, you should expect someone else to say something to you if they don't like.

It's the Conservatives who are against you kneeling and smoking weed.

What's wrong with this country?

Simply put, its a "country"! It needs to be broken up, or put another way, the Blue states should go their own leftist way and the Red States should go their own way. God, (the one you don't believe in), knows there's no reconciling the two. Break it up!

But I am really trying my best to understand why people on the right hate the left so much. So in an effort to better understand our ideological differences,

Well, you are off to a bad start. There is much hate on both sides. This is easy for me to see and discuss because I don't cripple myself with any one political ideal or party. I don't believe any one solution is the best fit for ALL problems or industries.

Much of the hate and anger IN THIS COUNTRY is due to the strategy that the Left and the MSM have embraced. Before you stop reading right there and taking that as a personal biased insult to the Left deity , let me explain .

The left has taken a very counter productive and lazy measure to deal with racism that has torn this country apart. The Left and MSM only talk and focus on racism from a point of view where its ALWAYS a white male against black and other minorities in this country.

The issue with that is that it creates and reinforces two sets of groups: victims (Minorities) and Villains (White Males) and nobody wants to belong to either of those groups.

Hence the lefts and the MSM strategy to tackle racism actually does the opposite and creates an atmosphere for hate,intolerance, and anger toward each other.

There strategy to classify the same people into groups of [victim] and [villains] is dangerous and the GOP ,DNC, and MSM apply it to just about every political topic in the US but the left more so with the 'ism'.

Now if you are still reading , the Right does it too but they do it at a different level. While the left is busy with the MSM in keeping us fighting among each other , the right is busy with the MSM in keeping us fighting with the middle east and other regions.

In the end the real reason for global conflict and national conflict is because of politics being played by the DNC,GOP and the MSM.

the DNC is not on your side. The real game is

[DNC+GOP+MSM+LOBBYIST ]
VS
[ the individual republican + individual democrat + individual 99.9% of Americans]

The best you can do is to denounce your party and join forces to
1. Add term limits to congress

2. campaign financing reform.

3. Lobbying reform

4. doing away with super-pacs

5. Revolving door between gov't and private sector

6. Transparency





I completely agree with these and will be using them as my reason for running for congress in 2018

I never said I wasn't.

As a matter of fact, my autobiography is titled, "I was dropped on my head a lot when I was a baby".

As many of you know I tend to be far to the left. But I am really trying my best to understand why people on the right hate the left so much.



As an outsider it seems to me that most of the outspoken hatred, contempt, ridiculing, name calling and finger pointing comes *from* the left.

Sure, there are right wing hate groups, but they are just that, groups - whereas the entire left, lead by the liberal media, seems to think that it is okay to hate on and harass and to an extent eve assault anyone who voted Trump.

"He had it coming, he is Trump supporter" seems to be the narrative - and that is hate for you; accepting violence against those with whom you disagree.

At least that is how as a liberal, mind you, European see it.

But don't let reality stop you.

Yeah, I am pointing fingers, but I am most certainly a left winger, so I do not not how that contradicts anything.

Also this thread is an attack right wingers, so what would you expect - that the right wingers just said "oh, you're so right! Kudos on you for making us see that"?

You're delusional.

Maybe that is the problem with this country.
