I bet that ATS is over 80% white male from the USA.
I wish there was a way to take a poll.


How racist, sexist, and anti-American of you.

But in the before times, we all knew and eagerly espoused the idea that our government would never reform itself. That another approach would be needed to clear the swamp.

What if they knew how distrusted the media was becoming and used that distrust against ourselves, or at least against a portion of the sheep that knew politics and government were only there to enrich themselves at the expense of us sheep. So they knew the greatest resistance was constitutionalists and small government advocators. They gave their greatest threat exactly what they wanted, a savior.....and we fell/are falling for it.

There is one great thing about this whole scenario, time will tell.


I actually think it was the opposite, that they tried hard to keep him away but failed. There is a lot of evidence for this.

The day-to-day minutiae of political emotionalism, the division, and the back and fourth of debate is all irrelevant. What is relevant is whether the ideology is correct, whether it leads to individualism and freedom on the one hand, or collectivism, statism and socialism on the other.

Far from being an irrational force, Trump is a great servant of reason. He forces men to think, some for the first time in their lives.

Don't answer, I've seen your posts. No need.



Wow, the Original Poster of this thread said that? After decrying how one sided things are.

You crystalized part of the problem. People want to talk AT others they disagree with rather than TO them.

How do we change that?

You are also part of the equation.


Did you not see what the title or the OP was?

Hint: It's about how ATS has become a govt loving, Trump boot licking echo-chamber.
Keep up man, we're only about 10 pages into you #s defending your about-face.

CS. How did the comment I quoted advance the thread? So there are many here you disagree with, do you think statements such as yours help that improve?

You wasted a lot of characters to say #e that naught to do with the OP.

Y'all trying to change the subject again.

Just throw in a "Orange Man Messiah" and move on.


All you're doing is validating my point.

You cannot use reason, logic, insults no longer work, so you're stuck with a false premise that has been refuted.


In a way it is rather sad.

I like a good fight from time to time, but finding a worthy opponent is becomming increasingly rare.

Yea, I suppose if you all kick everyone out of the club because they don't dress like you or make the same jokes as you or hell, steer a thread away from a subject like you folks, yea, itd be hard to find worthy posters.

See what I'm getting at?





Again. . . nothing of substance.


*sigh*

Gallop called me out and needs 🍺

He also has Bernie worthy platitudes to spout.

Better?


Just doing my civic duty. I'd put you under citizens arrest, but I don't want lefty germs.


Where is my beer, then?


Oh btw, you heard how bernie said that baltimore was worse than a third world country? the outrage by sane people was absolutely... well... *crickets*

Orange Man Honk REEEEEEE....


I'm more right leaning. But I'm not sure if that's because one leg is shorter than the other, or because my ma raised me with respect.

I don't see Trump as the panacea, or as the final solution and savior. However, my hope is he will be able to awaken enough people to the corruption and lies that people will finally rise up and say "Enough!!"



The election of Trump is just a symptom of a growing problem.


As the almost selection of Bernie was too.
But then again I'm a simpleton.

You have 22 stars and 21 flags for your OP.

The next post down from your OP and disagreeing with your OP got 31 stars.

Just going with the simply math your OP must be incorrect


That theory fails because it does not take into account that not every member is reading and not every reader stars and flags those posts.

Internet logic.

Why would the Russians ever support Trump over an ideology which is exactly the model of their society?????


Newsflash, we aren't in the 1980s. Russia, isn't in the 1980s. Russia isn't some communist hell hole with bread lines wrapping around the corner.

They're a hyper-capitalist society ran by the ultra-rich, in favor of the ultra-rich. The oligarchs. It's not a coincidence that ultra rich Americans and the politicians they pay are working for a similar type of government.

Sad at this site's progression.
You folks are as transparent as you are silly.
Y'all have nothing but Trump and "but the Dems".

Nothing sparks me intellectually anymore.
Just another mouth-piece echo chamber.
Prove me wrong.

I have been a member since 2003, while there was some support of GWB, there was a lot threads against him. Now there are many pro Trump threads and very few threads critical of him.

Furthermore anything pro Trump has an echo chamber of the usual suspects who are very supportive of Trump, while the usual suspects(the echo chamber if you want to call it that) are quick to chime in and denounce anything that criticizes Trump.

Another topic that is polarizing due to political mind games is environmental topics. While the scientific world recognizes human activity is making drastic changes to the environment and climate, those threads are quickly criticized on here as liberal nonsense by the usual suspects.

I agree with the OP. I´ve been member for years and I remember it bothered me from the beginning, that some poeple endlessly mocked eachother- this us vs them, left vs right game. But there was much more other topics too, tought-provoking ideas, phenomenons, experiences people shared. Now I haven´t visited this site regularly for several years. Every other month I do so and it´s still flooded with the political childish "us good - them bad" threads. Somehow it really feels like nothing new can come anymore, same day repeats all over again. And more and more people fall into these political mind-games, that is probably real conspiracy itself.

Russians are strictly the Night Shift.
THIS shift is just for the 80% ATS White, Male, Racist, Nazis.

I wonder how much larger his base grows when attacked by people who love open borders and unlimited immigration with no controls. How many more people flock to his banner when confronted by cities that are turning into cesspools because of liberal free for all politics and vote buying scemes. In my possible incorrect belief that he merely speaks the words and does the opposite, people attacking his words solidify this illusion more than anything else. The PC/SJW crowd are their own worst enemy and they don't even realize it.

I'm nobody, you just seemed unsure why you feel victimized, while putting out no context one liner replys to everyone on the board (quite occasionally ones that were even agreeing with you) as to feel attacked when people reply.


She's just playing a 'mean girls' role on the internet. I hear it's all the rage.

If only she'd hair flip tho...

I think most of us are still anti-government.




Especially considering the biggest thread on ATS in the last few years has at it's core the Government basically putting it's hand on the scale of Justice to try and remove an elected President.
