Yeah, but what if I like being ripped off on taxes, while acting smug?
This would be an example of "petty ego wins that only benefit our ourselves." Congratulations.
Although moderately amusing, completely useless.

You are about to get an onslaught of post about how bad socialism is by a bunch of #MAGA twits
Was hoping so in fact, but so far disappointed.

We choose our indoctrination based on our opinions. There's a multi billion dollar industry devoted to it called "news". Being right is being
right. Knowing is half the battle (G.I. Joe). Consider that being right doesn't matter.
Being right isn't what matters at all. If anything its knowing that we are all wrong as long as we are fighting amongst ourselves instead of
addressing the real issue(s). I hate to admit it but you're absolutely right, it is a mission impossible. But if we give up, where does that leave
It's the world of subjective.
Indeed it is. Which is also why we still have free will to choose our perspective. Quixotic? Apologies ahead of time for my optimism. Its not real.
Yet it seems to be the only hope for my grandchildren.

Well much appreciated MrDoc. Most agreeable response so far. Totally agree, we've kind of got our hands tied being forced to vote between two parties
that are both bought out by corporate overlords and bankers. I'll do another thread on potential broad-band solutions for this, although I'm not sure
how they would ever be implemented.

Your pessimism has earned you special attention.
In a perfect utopian world your thoughts might get some attention However the divide is on and the powers that be know it...
Now either you do not see how detrimental your belief system is. . . or you do and are actively working to withhold humanity from progressing.
Applause either way for your bullheaded pride and determination. Truly commendable. Would be an honor to have you fighting for true freedom of
Side one: i.e..Prior military, Constitutionalist, and any family creed that knows how good we have it and dont want the current America status
Well you see, this is a large part of the issue right here. You're not necessarily wrong at all. This is all beneficial if not taken to extremes until
other aspects of personalized human experience is infringed upon. Not to mention the fact that our "current America status to change" has been
gradually changing for decades; slowly eroding away with subtle changes and social manipulation. So in the end both 'sides' have really been fighting
for the same thing in different ways.
Side2.i.e.. naive and ignorant whom believe what they have been taught from our failed school systems, elected officials whom sold there souls
to foreign entities, and last many individuals whom have never traveled abroad...say 2 states from there birth...
This is petty and I shouldn't. . . but I just can't help it. *who*. Although english sucks and whom does actually sound better. Btw I do agree with
failed school systems, but that is but a small aspect of the larger picture and hardly an argument.
So would love for a perfect world...but this country did not become great by being just like everyone else
Still agreeing with you man. You're missing the point. Most people who know whats going on agree on more than they don't. But people get caught up on
words (example prior), and love conflict like a drug. This country did not become great from being like everyone else. And I would hope that we
continue to pioneer that path full bore ahead.
Cheers mate. Your post has been an excellent example of why parties and sides mean nigh on nothing but misinterpretations.

Same thing man. You will achieve much more making friends of your enemies rather than enemies of your friends. No one 'Wants' their rights taken away.
But approached confrontationally, one is sure to defend their own out of pride and dignity. If we're making less than 50mil, we're in more need of
allies than foes.
We do need our constitutional rights and personal liberties. People who disagree don't actually disagree but are blinded. Help them to see and gain an

But the recent idiocy that has been going on with unequal justice is something that seems to get a pass by the left, and it's the only thing, I
feel is continuing the animosity we are all seeing. It can't be ignored or dis-believed, it's factual, and recorded for history. It's taking place as
we speak. I think if the left here acknowledged that and at least disavowed it, there would be a lot less infighting.
So this is a tough one. It's overall groundless, but nonetheless relevant and accurate. Yet still bizarre you see this as a symptom of only the
democratic 'party'. There are countless 'atrocities' on equal terms liberals would consider the conservatives performing. The underlying difference is
that conservatives generally agree on an overarching free will humanity deserves if within their ‘ideals’ of life, while liberals prioritize free
will of self above that. There are obvious contradictions within each, such as the fact that one-for-all dogma intrudes on freedom, and free will can
also intrude on others freedom if without restriction.
In the end, we're piling a plethora of personalities into two groups and roughly pitting them against each other. Because why not? Of course there are
more than two types of people in the world. But if they are categorized into two distinct groups that cannot see past their differences, its an
automatic win at least 50% of the time all the time. We're being taken for fools.

That seems a bit conceited. Does not most everyone have truth behind their beliefs?
You're a big player on here so you've seen a lot. This may be for a whole different thread on truth... but it is objective. Diminishing another's
beliefs is pointless when many are ever-changing and evolving.

Isn't this what the MudPit was designed for?
Exactly why its here
This is my aggression towards the political divide and conquer strategy that's taken ahold of Americans, and I'd reckon it's controversial enough to
be here. Albeit it could be placed elsewhere, but I was hoping for more push-back on my proposal of peace among kinds.
