:hold hands up halfway:

Just a suggestion: Y'all could maybe like STOP talking politics here on ATS. No new threads...or of there are new threads, just don't respond to them. Let them die a lonely death.

Instead, post things like about UFOs, Aliens, Big Foot, End of the World, trade food recipes or different kinds of drinks, tell us about your last vacation, tell us about something fun you last did.........

No one, and I mean no one MAKES any of you participate in the politics....yet y'all do.......

again...just a suggestion......please put those clubs and pitchforks down.......

I just looked at the last 20 threads I started.
Only 3 had anything to do with politics and only 1 of those attacked either side so I'm trying.

My point here wasn't that these political threads take place it's just that they always end up the same ole thing. Dirk-er-der

We've had more actual discussion on these thread than I expected.
It's kinda refreshing.

I was gonna reply with something similar.

It really does seem to depend on who is reading, and how the writer is feeling.

Too late AB, I have already claimed the wizard pony. So, unfortunately you have just called yourself stupid.

Unless you mean that you've finally come over the the dark.. I mean the right.. I mean.. over to my side?

Many(most) liberals also exercise their 2nd Amendment rights


This is demonstrably false.

The second amendment only enjoys a 20% rate of support among liberals.

This is like saying that (most) conservatives actually support abortion. That number is pretty low as well.
www.pewforum.org...

Hovering at 27%

A search I did put it at 30-40%. Still gauge that against conservatives. It would be ridiculous to assume close to 100% of them are gun owners. Also many red states gun ownership is more than a political ideal, it's a necessity. Think states like Wyoming. Highly rural areas.

Eh, think about people who self-identify as liberals, not merely lean left.

I'll bet those who simply lean left are the ones who mostly own the guns whom you call liberal even though they may not call themselves that.

In reality, very low percentages of the population will openly self-ID as liberal or conservative either one -- usually less than 30%.

If you frame your search around Liberals and Conservatives you'll get my numbers.

If you frame your search around Democrats and Republicans, the results are closer to your numbers.

Since there are liberal republicans and conservative democrats, party affiliation seems to be more broad than ideological affiliation.

I would agree with this.

Especially since those labels long ago lost their meaning.

Yep. These days, those labels are usually slapped on by others as slur.

I luv your diatribes, they reflect upon reason, so lacking in the dehydrated desert of Hive Mind.


Me, I'm fine on the couch w/My dogs (True friends) and I've already completed My day. The dogs have been to the dog park and I've already done the dishes. The rest = "gravy".

Me too , my day was spent at the flea market where I found a couple books (one flew over the cuckoos nest) and a handful of tangible silver coins to add to my intrinsic pile.

Heres to a couple damn fine done days...

Actually yes I have....it was back here in our staff area.

It was back in January 2016. I warned everyone on staff here on ATS that the 2016 Presidential Election threads were going to really get started and ATS was soon to be flooded with more political threads than anyone could imagine.....

Sadly, I was completely right....and in fact, even underestimated it. It's now the end of 2017 and the political crap here on ATS is just as bad as it was in July of 2016........
