I'm done. Raise gasoline to $10 per gallon. I just don't care anymore.


$10/gallon gas will get your attention, and you will care. So will $4/gallon gas, $5/gallon gas, $6/gallon gas, $7/gallon gas, $8/gallon gas and $9/gallon gas.

Trump does make politics entertaining though... I will give the guy that.

To be totally honest, I can't even remember the name of our current prime minister off the top of my head... I suppose I could google it, but I just don't care enough to go to all the effort.

His just some extremely unremarkable guy who means nothing to me... Really couldn't care less whether the conservative or progressive party is in power either... Same s# with a different name.

US politics on the other hand... well, that's like reality tv, for people who don't like reality tv... Or a team sport, for people who hate football.

It must be exhausting to be a leftist continually hoping the next fantasy story gets you what you want and continually having to pretend you actually believe the snip the MSM pushes on you.

Savy investors saw this coming the day trump won the election. Speculators are doing a happy dance.

Get rid of social security. Raise gasoline to $10 per gallon. I just don't care anymore. The government does not represent me in any way, shape, or form. I'm done.


No body wants to do any of those things dfnj

I do understand your sense of frustration, entirely. But as much as you feel that way right now, it may surprise you to know some of us on the right also feel that way. I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm personally getting sick of the same old system that does nothing but protect itself and use/abuse us while throwing us under the bus at the first chance it gets

With Trump, I guess all of that feels like it is on "pause" but I know Trump won't last forever (8 years, max) and we'll be right back to the same broken and probably illegitimate system. Which is why its even harder for me to understand why the left is suddenly supporting the surveillance state, unwarranted intrusions, violation of attorney/client privilege and generally supporting the abuse of the legal system to political ends

With the tectonic shifts in the Republican party, if the left-wing were to join forces with us we could actually fix this government and its significant mistakes over the last ~100 years or so (and keep the parts that weren't mistakes! like civil rights movement for instance)

It is sad, but don't be discouraged. What is stopping you from aligning yourself with the right wing anyways? What point of view or position do we hold that is so incompatible with your own beliefs? Especially when you consider the non-aggression principle and our positions of maximum-liberty. The divisive/wedge issues don't have to be addressed at all (since it isn't government's place to address them, generally speaking)

I'd have thought the left would love high petrol prices... isn't the world supposed to be run on cow farts now, or else the world will end?

The loss of your political engagement, which is your duties as a citizen, will only contribute to the problems that make you scurry in disgust in the first place. To run is a selfish, but also self-defeating choice.

I'll keep on voting REPUBLICAN, eating PEZ, Taco Bell and sucking Nitrous Oxide out of the whipped cream containers at the store when no one's looking. And I will continue to watch the left flail in angst and misery with a smile on my face.









That's the NO2 lol.

good on you for choosing not to participate.

please do your best to encourage all like minded people within your preferred echo chamber to do the same.

Oh it's definitely going to get a lot worse for you.

wait until Trump has the all the right people in office and the leaders of both sides start getting executed for crimes against humanity.

Then the bankers will get exposed for being baal/satan/cain worshippers and the blackmailing system they run will come crashing down.

They are all paedophiles who get off on domination over other humans and humanity itself.

This is why Trump declared a national emergency and signed a bill into law saying all criminals caught trafficking humans will have their assets frozen.

2018 will be glorious

Who is getting rid of SS and charging $10 for gas? Now be specific. I see successfully renegotiated trade agreements, record low unemployment, new stock market record levels and North Korea firing no more missile tests.

Here you go:
www.cbsnews.com...
www.fool.com...
www.thinkadvisor.com...

Thats just the first three in the list I just googled for you. If you want to try it yourself browse to google.com and enter "plans to reduce social security benefits" without the quotes. I don't see any mention on the left planning this, but lots of GOP issues.

In fact, I think cutting social security benefits are a key point in the Koch bros plans for America.


All of that is mere speculation or fearmongering by Lefty. Come back when it actually happens.

The only way government will represent you is by voting for the people you want to see running it.

Granted, change is slow. That's because people don't educate themselves and/or don't vote.
