ATS too political for me

I totally agree. The irony is that Politics seems to dominate while at the same time US politics at least near entirely useless; nothing changes because of the entirely broken nature of the US House of Representin'. With universal sufferage such that everyone, felons, the imprisoned, the insane, the criminally insane and non-citizens being allowed to vote, voting becomes useless as hopelessly diluted and universal sufferage will and must inevitably result in a One Party State, like California.

But this is your ATS too. You could do what I am trying to do.......find and introduce at least one new non-political thread a week. It isnt easy because you have to read to the back pages to find non-political stories of interest.

Give it a try!

When I've seen threads like this, I've generally had the thought It is what it is; there's so much BS and blatant hypocrisy going on here in the US political scene, it's ridiculous to think our members would stop authoring threads that call it out, or responding to those threads. For those of us who work a lot, there's not a lot of other ways to get our views out there.

Having said that, I think it may be a good idea to add a custom filter option for each member's account; so they could have a page of all recent threads, but un-check the "US Politics" and "Mud Pit" categories... That would show them everything else. This would give those ppl a way to continue to participate & contribute, and not be forced to leave entirely. It would also boost the number and frequency of non-political posts.

Just a thought.

Maybe I'm wrong. . .

But when I see Obama awesomeness, Hillary's climb to power, the speculation that Trump was a Russian spy. . . .

There was never any threads created that talked about "too much politics on ATS".

But with the speculation that the Obama White House and Hillary actually did spy and stage a coup against a duly elected president. . well. . . all of a sudden, we see these threads pop up where "we should get away from politics" and "there's too much political talk".

Perhaps the conspiracy is that leftist elements are trying to infiltrate social media and websites like ATS to change the narrative against the ill conduct of leftist elements in politics.

Plus, sometimes it is just fun.

This post should have come with a warning. Scrolling down gave me quite a start and my heart isn’t what it once was. If HRC wasn’t still with us, I’d swear this was a reincarnated facsimile...complete with the crazy stare from the 80s.

Politics won’t be going away anytime soon. TPTB have made sure as it’s their only way to divide and conquer. If the citizenry hadn’t been distracted from learning historical civics over the past 50 years by the indoctrination, US educational system...more folks would understand this and not fall victim to it.

Name 1 thing that hasn't become political for some insane reason or another! Every aspect of our lives has become politicized and that's no accident. Food, sex, recreation, health, ZEDucation, language, anyone else feel free to add to the list. Yet we wonder why everything is about politics?

Give me Freedom and Liberty for $1000 Alex!

This is really the crux of the matter...everything has become politicized,
save for my garden, which is why I am spending more time there than ever.

Not that I don't like the political discussions, I do. However, this total
political overdrive is not just on ATS, it is everywhere now since the
Muh Russia investigation. Like the creeping crud, it has oozed into
every nook and cranny of online talk, books, BBQ's, family reunions
you name it. Gird your loins indeed.


I do not look for this to change once 2020 is over. Trump
or no Trump there will be no going back. Our lives have been
forever changed, and sadly I look back and I do not think this
started with Trump, it started with 9/11.

There was something inherently bad about 9/11, nothing has been
the same since and it never will be. I see the Muh Russia hoax
as the second 9/11. We are living through 9/11 all over again
only on another plane. (no pun intented).

September 11, 2001 was a physical destruction, the Russia hoax
is a cerebral destruction, a tearing down of American democracy,
a dividing event. Looking closely, the same political party is
responsible for both, it is time people wake up and see that
there is a highly influential group of people who are bringing
this about, they are the ones who claim the high ground
within the intelligence agencies. They have that holier than
thou look, walk and talk. But deep within them is a dark
operation that is working to destroy American from within.

Many people are aware of this and can not and will not
just stand idly by and let the narrative be controlled by
these gatekeepers, and with good cause. We can not
allow this to go unchecked. Fight the good fight,
and that means speaking out, so until justice has
been handed down to the traitors, so be it we are
going to be vocal and that is just life right now.

It is where we are in this timeline.

The Russia Hoax is the second 9/11, this my
genuine original thought, you heard it here.

I am predicting this is a forever game changer.
Mark my words, things will never be the same.

I have backed off some from participating on ATS. I am in political self-defense mode. I want to maintain my rights and the rights of others. Both sides can be involved of taking our rights away. The Left does a lot more of it right now with their authoritarianism, but the right does it with abortion rights.

I can’t actively defend abortion rights as I believe it is murder, but I don’t like seeing people try to take away the right to choose either.

It is not “political” but called that so you can be lead by your nose.

Ignore the crap and have a human experience that overrides this observation!

Life ain’t that bad!
