Don't get mad if people reply without reading your continuous anti Trump posts.
We got tired of it and it got annoying. You are smart, make a thread about any other stuff without that bitterness. You'll have a heart attack or something man, got to be something else that you like.
I would also like to see him post a thread on another topic as well.Think of all the great threads he could
write if he focused all his energy away from hating Trump.But,those stars and flags do add up,don't they?
Well I don’t take requests but the other day I wrote a thread about the gaming industry and in the past I have written on a wide range of topics. Right now Trump is very topical so that’s what I write about

I am and have always been an independent. I voted that way in the presidential elections because in by opinion their was no good choice.
I was willing to except the outcome and respect whomever was chosen by the majority.
However , my respect for the man currently holding the office is starting to fade. Given the current and past episodes of not excepting responsibility for things he has done or said.
There seems to be a lot of level headed thinkers on ATS. Would one of you please give me a reason to respect again.

You can have your opinion and I can have mine. I'd vote inequality over authoritarianism. I understand the terms of ATS and have seen mods come down heavy handed. However if folks can't see bullchit rhetoric for what it is, it's not anyone else job to do it for them.
You and even the OP have many other outlets to release in fullness your thoughts in a way that other folks can see them.
So you'd vote inequality over authoritarianism though it's clear the end result of inequality in thread closure IS authoritarianism?
So therefore your reasoning is illogical and absurd, and as a result a case of hollow virtue signaling.
Inequality is by definition authoritarianism and you cannot vote one over the other. The law must be equal if we seek true liberty.
difference in size, degree, circumstances, etc.; lack of equality.

This is an interesting post. You're perfecting your trolling abilities. You've set it up perfectly, basically any response you can just call 'petty' or 'part of the handbook.' An on topic post about the OP would basically consist of "nuh-uh" followed by examples. You could then pivot to asking why they feel the need to defend themselves if they don't do these things.

Authoritarianism is a form of government characterized by strong central power and limited political freedoms. Individual freedoms are subordinate to the state and there is no constitutional accountability under an authoritarian regime.
