How dare they live their lives the way they choose.


I think you have this on the wrong side. This is WHY we can't compromise with the left. They have no tolerance for letting people live their lives the way they choose, or to have their opinions the way they choose.


its ok to live your life the way you want as long as your choice dont make someone else life miserable...


Being taxed to death, having to surrender most of my guns and having the economy collapse so that the left can "rebuild" it into a society where the government is there to take care of all my needs would make me miserable.

It would make anyone who is an actual American and understand what that means quite miserable.

To highlight just how backwards your thinking is...

What if living your life includes wearing a MAGA hat?

Oop... can't do THAT in some places... the loving and tolerant left will kill you for that.

Want to drive in Portland with a Trump 2020 bumper sticker on?

Kinda a death sentence right now unless you are part of a convoy.

SoOo....

Who exactly now is making normal Americans miserable at this point?

Spoiler Alert... the party you are going to vote for.

Have fun with that.

Your "side" is still going to lose and keep losing and keep compressing in on itself and keep losing voters until the Democratic party will finally be thrown in the dustbin of history as just another racist power-hungry conglomeration of tyrants.

Finally.

Was I unclear? Walk down the street in Portland, Seattle, or NYC with a Trump hat on and see for yourself. Walk down the street in ANY city in the US with a Biden hat on (do they even make one?), no one will say a word to you.

The left.

The right.

The only way to break that cage is to vote 3rd party.


If you’re voting 3rd party candidates, but advocate by your OP title that we move to center, which of the following parties fit that profile? Below: These are just the parties with a candidate for president, plus another half-dozen or more down ballot races we'll see on our general election ballot. Datsalotta research to ensure you’re supporting the move to center.

18 states have a presidential candidate from the Constitution Party

13 states + DC have a presidential candidate from the Party for Socialism and Liberation

12 states have a presidential candidate from the Birthday Party

8 states have a presidential candidate from the Solidarity Party

6 states have a presidential candidate from the Socialist Workers Party

3 states have a presidential candidate from the Unity Party

4 states have a presidential candidate from the Prohibition Party

2 states have a presidential candidate from the Progressive Party

2 states have a presidential candidate from the Bread and Roses Party

2 states have a presidential candidate from the Approval Voting Party

2 states have a presidential candidate from the Life and Liberty Party

1 state has a presidential candidate from the Socialist Equality Party

A Socialist Action Party along with a Transhumanist Party also exist, although not sure the candidates appear on any state ballot.

He does not understand the reason why rational people don't negotiate with terrorists.

Or the incredible amount of hatred the left has towards ordinary citizens in the USA.

You know... the independent voters.

We are normally about 25% Democrat, 25% Republican and 50% independent here in terms of voters... although those numbers are skewing right lately because of the actions of the Democrats the last few years.

All this poster sees about our situation is CNN Overseas and bases his posts and thoughts on the American political scene on that alone.

So the poster isn't living in reality, but merely a construct the media has built for them.

I agree with you up to your voting opinion. I feel like more change would come about if no one voted and WE took the power back.

How do you "move to the center" with folks who will scream in your face, drink your beer, smash your food to the ground, etc., until you comply with their demands?

It seems to me they aren't moving anywhere, so any moving that happens will be on your part, to your knees.

Kind of curious how we're supposed to compromise with people who want communism.

Wouldn't marxism or socialism be a compromise to communism? LOL.

How is any loss of freedoms a compromise when it'd be in direct conflict with the Constitution?

We've already got a perfect format.

It's called the Constitution and Bill of Rights.


Exactly. Why would a traditional, conservative American want to adopt a little communism, just to appease the other side?

I say split America into geographic sections, where Conservatives have their own country, and Liberals have their own country. Each leaves the other alone.

For decades governments, politicians and their big money puppet masters in the background did everything to divide the people. One example is that "left" and "right" thing. The worst nightmare of those that rule are people united. Then they get very nervous. Happened in germany with those protests because of and against the politically subscribed Corona measures.

They got so nervous seeing the people not fighting each other but walking together and protesting against the government that they needed to stage a false flag event called (only by them) Reichstagssturm. It was not a storm, not a wind, not even the fart of a baby. To have an excuse to speed up their plans to build a trench around the Reichstag and hide from the obvisiously "potential terrorist" german tax payer. They used even a cop as superheroe which is known as TV actor. They knew that the stage right in front of the Reichstag at the day of the "Sturm" was part of a legal demonstration registered by a well known Neonazi, former NPD member and "Reichsbürger" and that these people planned that "Sturm" for at least one week in their social media echo bubbles. And yet their were only "three heroic cops wich saved Germany and it´s democracy that day". There are videos of that day which show two people, one of them with something like glasses, standing on the roof of another building, free sight on the Reichsbürger stage and the Reichstag and it´s stairs. Not a few people think this were Verfassungsschutz V-Männer, secret service agents giving commands and watching over their staged event.

The politicians and their puppet masters know that they went to far with their (Green Deal, Covid, New Normal, Great Reset, Industry4.0, making a few rich richer and making everybody else poor and Co) game and what will come in the next one or two years over them. And they noticed that their "divide the people to rule" plan didn´t work as wished at the end. And got really, really nervous because of that fact and can´t hide from the tax paying german people fast enough now. They couldn´t use the Corona/Covid excuse for everyhing this time and had to go back to the well known terrorist excuse. Which makes all german tax payers look like potential terrorist the "political elite" needs to hide from and being protected from. Fun fact, that trench will be build, of course, with german tax payers money.

If we, the people(of wherever something needs to be changed to a better), want to change something we need to stop to fight each other and unite against those that don´t want anything changed because they maybe could lose a bit of their profits, wealth and maybe would have to share with the "rubble" and pay their price like taxes, same as the "rubble", too.

It would really shake things if we all didn't vote.

trump or biden win with 10k or fewer.

I would give anything to see that.
It would give me so much hope for this country.

Where exactly do you find center?


At this point in time there is no center.
At least not anyone from it that is running.

But I'm whiling to vote konya if it helps to break the chains the two parties have rapped around our throats.

that's why I underlined "the left"
What I wrote under that is what the left says about the right.

I haven’t changed my core positions for over 40 years, but my positions have been changed from liberal to conservative over time by society. Hell, they call my positions from college (which were liberal then) alt-right now. I am not moving my positions...the stupid people are moving what they are called.


This is a very valid point that I wish more people understood.

No.

You're still talking about giving up control of large parts of an economy to the government and being taxed out the nose accordingly to pay for it.

We have a couple such systems already here in the US - USPS and the public education system. Can you honestly and with a straight face tell me they are the very pinnacle of efficiency and performance in doing what they are supposed to do? Can you tell me they constantly run within or even under budget in getting their job done? Are they even close?

If not, then why on earth should compromise any more by giving up more sectors of our economy to total government control? It seems to me like this would be a clear downgrade. We have some cities where up to 50% or more of the student body graduates functionally illiterate, and the USPS is a giant, money sucking black hole that has chronic problems in its operations.

So I wonder again why those of us who know who and what we are and what our principles are, are being asked to surrender those and being asked to do it constantly to appease people who constantly shift?
