Which is why they oppose people that want to use the government to oppress people.

? lol

Antifa wants t he opposite of that - they want to use the power of coercion to silence/oppress people.

They are fascists - the embodiment of the concept of 'projection' (accuse others of what you yourself are doing to deflect and hopefully keep them from noticing).

That is patently false, both parties have grown government unceasingly. Libertarians want little to no government.


Is that why you want people whom are linked to Trump in jail simply because they meet "the new definition of lying according to the left/lying democrats/lying socialists"?

Is that the new definition of Libertarian now as well?...

SO, this begs the question , are you saying Babies aborted Or Fetus'?

I'm talking about women old enough to have children. You can go and split hairs about babies if you want. Human infants don't even achieve self-awareness until the age of 2 or 3. I'm talking about a woman making decisions about what she wants to do with her own body. Or are we just forgetting about her and what she wants?

But hey, this is an argument about abortion on the Internet!
I'm sure we'll come to a mutually agreeable solution!

I want every criminal political operative in jail, not just the ones tied to your orange Jesus.

So then you would consider Antifa to be a group of Right Wingers? I mean they are primarily anarchists.


Changing tactics to fk American citizens even further. Don't follow that deceiving plan. Anarchist don't want Gov just know that.

THAT subject is certainly complicated. Just lets stick to when it CAN BE called murder we all need to discuss this in minutia and not white wash either sides points.

To say they can't do what they want with their body argument is debatable and takes away from the discussion that is now reasonably morphed into a Libertarian discussion. Libertarians are willing to limit the Gov influence in every way. Limit but not forget totally about having a Gov. Hopefully for the people and not as it is now, for themselves.

AM my tolerance of criminal political operative will likely get me a ticket to Hell if I don't keep focused on loving the sinner and not the sin. I have pretty much zero tolerance for this cabal as you seem to be agreed to not like them either.

I think it's funny that anyone thinks either party is in favor of "less control over your life."

The advantage dealing with Republicans is that they call it what it is when they try to take control.

Dems pretend they're adding to your freedom..... by taking away your freedoms....?

Reason why you think they are right wing is because they are slightly right to communism but left-wing in the US system. Democrats would be consider extreme right if you compare them on a chart of fascism and communism. Right wing in America is even farther to the right.

Keep in mind fascism was born out of the failures of communism, it is just a more efficient form of communism and all the founders of fascism were Marxists.

Bottom line Democrats and Republicans do not exist between fascism and communism. They exist to the far right of fascism and communism, but Democrats are still to the left of Republicans, which is why a lot of uneducated people are confused.


Still to the left for now. But if they choose Bernie as their candidate?

The OP hasn't learned much about the history of politics the US. Up until the passage of the 14th amendment, State sanctioned churches basically controlled who had the right to vote in each state. Conservatives have a long history of restrictive legislation. It wasn't that long ago when it was illegal for mixed race couple to marry, and more recently, same sex couples. Where Liberals have always sought to expand the rights of individuals, Conservatives have sought to restrict individual rights and equal treatment under the law. In the 1980's, Christian Right activists defended racial segregation under the guise of "Religious Freedom". Basically the Christian Right claimed that it was their right to discriminate and when they weren't allowed to do so, they claimed it was a violation of their religious freedoms.

I could go on and on but I'm not trying to change anyone's mind.... First you have to have a mind to change.. .


So that was supposed to be a sophisticate response? Bladerdash!

Calling people stupid is not how to make your debate a win. Implying I am a boorish cretin is not very nice. How dare you have the dubious audacity to doubt my veracity or to ignorantly blather about the level of IQ of posters in this thread!


Freedom from gov is Right leaning.

Freedom from God is sinning and that is between you and God. Certainly, not me and you. Fascists in the Church and the Islamic religion are still left leaning pro totalitarians.


LMAO... sounds like I touched a nerve. The fact that you're using religious dogma to shore up the contention that you're "intelligent" speaks volumes to me. Carry on... lol...

You can love them, but I bet you would love them more if they were in prison.

Not true. Under Trump the smoking age has been raised to 21, and certain E-cigs have been banned. Regardless of the safety, that is attack on one's freedom of choice.

Under Trump, he has given the federal government the go ahead to prosecute marijuana offenses in states where it is legal.

Let us not forget that Trump calls any media that is critical of him enemies of the state.

So tell me again how the right is for freedom, state rights and free press!

But really, why stop there?

Dubbya, the last republican POTUS, created "Free Speech Zones" where you had the right to free speech so long as you were out of sight, crapped on states rights such as in the Terri Schiavo case, and created the Department of Homeland Security which was the largest increase in federal bureaucracy since FDR's New Deal.

Laughable notions like, "The Left is for more controls vs Right no gov at all and Free speech" have been obsolete for decades. Both of our corrupt parties are only concerned with one thing... maintaining their power.

So, I make a website for discussing body building. You're saying I am obliged to let people who think body building is dumb, to come onto my website (that I created and paid for) and promote eating donuts and being fat? Because of your feelings? And are you implying that Big Brother needs to step in and force people to allow "dissenting views" on a privately owned and run site? Why not just make your own website to promote your interests and views?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Asking for the government to step in is a clear violation of the very thing a lot of yall seem to be advocating for. What happens when a law like that happens to get passed and then a super-left winger gets elected POTUS? DO NOT GIVE THE GOVERNMENT MORE POWER OVER OUR LIVES. Don't fall for the BS yall. Baby steps to the NWO...

Well you might have me there.

Prison is for society to decide and we have laws that we have agreed to follow to be allowed to live here. If someone can't play by the rules, there are consequences that we have collectively agreed upon and that is above my individual desire to respect the sinner. Protecting the innocent is an important reason for the laws.

The Bushes are not Right leaning at all they want a one world tolatarian Gov.

There is a reason we call the fake R's RINO's . RINO's are LEFTIST leaning like Romney and Paul Ryan. RINO's help push Socialist/Fascist Marxism down our throat. The DHS creation alone proves my point. LEFTIST who want more Gov not less. That was all the Bush clan.
