Today I experienced something quite alarming, and it's making me seriously question what's going on. I made a post on a yahoo news article ... (snippage)
I was very surprised that my patient explanation of my positions were quickly gaining traction as I was the top comment thread with a very strong thumbs up ratio. For a moment I felt people do still listen to logic and reason than to automatically follow group think and throw labels at you when they can't think of a better way to respond. And then with no warning, Yahoo removed my entire thread even though it was strongly liked and the most active, and yet Yahoo left dozens of threads active which were calling conservatives a bunch of Nazi gun loving idiots (I'm more independent but if forced to choose the lesser of two bad choices I would still go with conservative over a party which is strongly flirting with anarchy if things don't go their way).

Far-left is absolute government control and far-right is absolute individual freedom.
World history and the present has indisputably proven that "far" anything, left or right seeks government control over it's people.
I'm feeling slightly disheartened over this, especially realizing how much power mainstream media has... and I'm nervous about what their end agenda is... there is clearly an agenda, and someone out there knows what it is.
