So if fascism and hate become the norm, than the "fringes" will be the good guys. You want a system solidified that facilitates the downfall
of the fringe and gives all the good cards to the "mainstream thinkers"??
No no, just because they are the fringe does not mean they are the minority. I would consider the MINORITY in politics today as being the sane and
The populists right now are the problem. An army of conservatives and liberals who think they know better than me or you and think they have the
right to guide your future based on their own pre-conceived notions of happiness and success.
What we need to see is American voters learning how to think for themselves and vote accordingly for once. That is all.
Yes, that is something I also want, but who is going to teach them how to think for themselves? Who is going to stand there and explain to them how
this system works, who it actually is there for and how to fight it?
It will be the 40% of politicians who actually give a damn about their constituents and their country.
What we currently have is a bunch of people who joined politics because they were afraid.
Afraid of terrorists.
Afraid of religious persecution. ( wrongly perceived)
This exists on both sides of the isle, trust me there are as many democrats against gay marriage and who are pro religion than republicans, they just
do a better job at making it sound like they agree.
The whole top 60% of all elected officials IMO are extremists. Be in left or right ideology. They are not moderate and do not represent the average
American, who is moderate in almost all respects.
The problem is the that the moderate American is usually too busy trying to put food on the table to pay attention to even local politics.
But then again, that's probably on purpose. Can't have the middle class paying attention now can we?
