All that has to happen to bring people together is for the media to quit trying to create division.

That will not happen until the Deep State ownership of most of the MSM is severed and a host of arrests of deep state operatives posing as talking heads and editors.

It will happen and it will not be pretty.

P


too much infiltration and useful idiots who have been braindamaged. I honeslty dont see how this ends peacefully. Maybe a mass suicide aka Jonestown but I dont see it happening.

I see more false flags in the comming weeks. If the is a red wave so big that Florida goes Red I see a call to action for the communists and an attempt at a purge in selected areas to take ground. If Florida goes blue it might hold off until 2020 but I doubt it.

But, as I'm sure you already know...never confuse compromise for the sake of good with vigilance.

Distinct difference.


Compromise is debating between a porterhouse and a NY strip and setting on ribeye.

Try compromising with a vegan.



OR...a Labrador Retriever!


I'm a dog person.

I will always compromise for a pup!

Bull#.

You are making it two sides. This is not Flatland. Not a 2 dimensional world. But it seems to work if you can convince enough people that it is.

About what?
Pick something out of your gish gallop list. Your us and them mentality. Skip the lies and exaggerations from both sides.

Democrats want to open our borders!
Republicans want to destroy the planet!

Good thread

Its worrying when the msm starts saying that the US is heading for "civil war". Why are these puppets pushing for?

Who stands to benefit. Stay united my US friends.


www.news.com.au... story/b95c0f751b21094453681b2ad3f588d4


Is America headed for a new civil war? Fury, violence and now bombs show a US deeply divided

THE US is now firmly divided into two camps - left and right - and they can’t stand each other. The country is sliding towards a disaster.

I wish I had your optimism - do you actually think Rupert Murdoch, kingmaker of politicians, is actually touchable?

The reversal of Dodd-Frank shows that nothing was learn't from the GFC. The sheep will be shorn again.

Feed them bread and circuses while they live behind walled security.

The divide is too great, I'm afraid.



Our values, goals, foundational beliefs are too different now.



You are afraid.
Most of us are hopeful. . .

All respect sir.

That's the thing.

Want, want, want, want.

The more you try to control anything, the more it goes the way you don't want it to.

I'm not talking anarchy. I'm talking stop with the illusory view that we're engaged in battle.

I never had a problem with anybody until they tried to control me.

I suspect most people are the same.

Stop trying to force sheet on other people and all shall be well.

It's a simple concept: live and let live.

Do TPTB want that? Of course not. Then who will vote them into office if the serfs were cooperating with each other.




TPTB have never held elections or been voted on.

These beings have never been held to account over anything...and hold the keys to uproot all forms of escape from their design.

But a new enemy flanks them now....

It's ironic that often those that yell fake news the loudest, are the ones that buy completely into the divisions that the MSM pushes.
In thier vivid imaginations, fueled by hefty daily doses of MSM violence and negativity it becomes an all or nothing, us vs them, zero sum game when the reality is not even close.
No-ones coming for your guns, hordes of foreigners aren't coming to tear down your borders to rape all the women and take all your jobs and there are no waves of socialists coming to purge conservatives (like really? You have to be pretty far gone to believe this, seriously the logistics and expense alone would be outrageous).
People really need to ask themselves if the movies that play in their heads have any chance of happening in the real world, with law enforcement, the military and ordinary, normal, non delusional people being what they are.
Good post OP, there really needs to be a reawakening, a wholesale return to sanity. But for that to happen people need to step away from social media, turn away from the MSM and go outside for some fresh air.

You're about to lose your office and cause us to lose the Senate because you're too moderate and coming off like a Democratic sympathizer. You of all people should know that the majority of our base are simple folks that wouldn't go with this at all. Why look weak and guilty for having a big part in the divisive situation? Not only are you going to lose votes, you're going to lose your office for not energizing our base to turnout for the polls. You look defeated before you even start against the Democratic nominee.

They already painted you as defeated and sucking up to the other side. I believe he said, "I appreciate Senator Flyingclaydisk's blah blah blah" with slight sarcasm undertones and some chuckles from the audience before he went into how you were wrong about everything and against the working class.

Senator Blake wasn't running for re-election if you forgot while you were getting stoned and spreading love with the tree huggers. That's why we tapped him to make the investigation play at the Kavanaugh hearing. We knew the FBI wouldn't find anything if there was anything to find in the first place did we not. That's how you use a moderate card, not what you're doing by damaging the party and yourself.

I think like you, but I fear there is a growing number of people that hate America as it is and dream of a very different America than the one our founding fathers dreamed of.

They can't be reasoned with because they want America changed into their vision.

We got squeaky wheels on both sides that get the medias attention along with a smallish portion of anarchists and militias that are screaming this civil war BS. Sooner or later the vast silent majority in the middle, those Republicans Democrats and Independents are going to trim those edges of discontent and pop those blisters of anarchy. Right now its just those fringe edges that are lobbing threats and rhetoric, the media loves it, it sells but the vast majority of this country know its all a crock of manure. Both sides are one trick ponies rile up their bases for the mid terms, it gets maximum exposure on the TV news print and digital. It literally looks,smells and feels like duel McCarthyism, one side is gonna destroy the planet the other is going to make us bow to the EU, these tactics will flame up too high at one point, and be extinguished by the middle.

No they are not. Everyone loves there family. Everyone wants the best for their children. Everyone wants safety and their needs met.

There are far more similarities than differences. We have differences no doubt. But if we focus on the truth that we all, and i mean 99% of the world, if we focus on the common neeeds and wants of mankind we can accomplish anything.

Now that 1% that intentionally divides and enslaves and devours. I hope that one day they will see the error of their ways and submit to a United mankind.
If not they will have hell to pay once we do unite.

Don’t give up hope. We must remain civil toward one another. We must love one another. It is our only hope. We cannot continue the cycle of revenge. We cannot, must not give in to the dark side.

In which case the vegan says, “Ugh. Gross. Eat whichever you like. But if you share the roasted potatoes, the green beans and let me have the salad, we can both have a meal we can live with. But when the bill comes due, I will only pay for half the veggies and the salad. Fair?”

Is it possible to distrust each other and yet work toward a common goal?

You have set down the gauntlet. If I/we bend to return it to you in co-operation, can I/we trust that you will not take the opportunity to strike me/us as our attention strays from your weapon?

Yes, we must work together or we will perish together.

But do you understand what you are asking of us?

If you were in our shoes, would you have the courage to co-operate with those who, until this instant, had reviled you?

Can we be assured that this is not some devious ploy to play our “tolerance” (which has been derided as a weakness) against us?

What you ask of us is something you, collectively of course, have consistently condemned in us.

Such bittersweet irony!



Ummm...I certainly hope your holding up a mirror as you speak...cause some of us get real tired of being reviled with your sides favorite labels...

You have consistently condemned your opponents as well...you also have no right to claim a tolerance that you practice so one-sidedly...

So...in the spirit of...tolerance...why even utter the word...if you strip it of every definition it ever had...


Personally...I'm in agreement with DBCowboy...there is no point in attempting to join hands with an ideology that's diametrically opposed to ones own belief system...

Humanity is not ready for non-territorialism...perhaps we never will be...so attempting to push against the grain of human nature will always fail...

I'm surprised that the intellectual high brow progressive...can't seem to figure that out...
