Something just occurred to me while reading this thread. A while back one of our Democrat members suggested that ATS was turning into a right wing
shill-fest. After months of reading both sides, I dispute his claim because I've noticed a couple of things:
Democrats by and large are anti-Trump, anti-individual and anti-Constitution. What do I mean by that? I'm not going to spend a lot of time with
paragraphs upon paragraphs and links and BS that can be read either way, this is just my observation. Most (not all) Democrats I've either seen or
heard believe that Trump is a baffoon that has no business being in politics. Arguments aside, the fact is the man knows business and we need a
businessman to run our economy. He knows how foreign leaders operate and we needed someone that knows how to deal with them. Forget Trump's
personality, no one except the Left cares about that because his actions are much different. I believe he spouts off in part to inflame Democrat
tempers to expose them and in some cases just to piss them off. I get it. Nobody in the Democrat party of his ability has stepped forward, they keep
pushing One World idiots to the top of their party.
Most Democrats are not in favor of letting people be who they are and do what they want, following our laws, obviously. They tend to berate anyone
that thinks or acts differently and will not tolerate any one person's behavior if it differs from theirs. They also do not like someone being able to
do things the way they choose if it goes against their Democrat beliefs. If someone for example wants to own a semi-auto rifle, because Democrats
don't "approve", they don't want anyone to have them. Dems want everyone to follow their beliefs, their rules, screw individuality, they want
compliance. Period. They will go to extremes to destroy anyone that doesn't agree with them. Most also do not care about our rights, or how the
government is supposed to be limited by the Constitution, they want to tear out those pesky amendments that they don't like. Why don't they like them?
Because they get in their way of doing things the way they want to, not the best way for the country.
So that brings me to my epiphany: Many Democrats on this site are quiet, calm, peaceful and don't stir things up. However, because there are a few
dozen who will not use facts, will not listen to facts, will not participate in orderly discussions but resort to a handful of standard Democrat
talking points and will not use emotional or intellectual intelligence in their arguments, I believe that is the reason we don't see too many Dems
posting here, much less participating in discussions.
I'm open-minded enough to at least listen to other arguments. Many Dems are not. Many Reps are not as well, but the last few years have shown me a
side of Dems I've never seen to this extent - rabid, vitriolic, hateful and spiteful. And I'm 57 years old, it's not like I'm fresh out of high
school. I have a staunch conservative father and a staunch liberal mother. I grew up hearing both sides. What separates the good from the bad is can
you be an adult and have an honest conversation? If not, go play on the Daily K or Beast where the lunatics hang out. I want to see real, hardcore
intelligence in discussions from the Left, something we rarely see here. Then our Democrat friends just might see why these latest elections are going
to Republicans, not Democrats.
The mindset of the current Democrat party is scary - Take our rights away, we don't deserve them. Take our jobs and money away, we don't deserve those
either. Do what we say, not what we do. We control everything about you, you just don't realize it yet. Ladies and gentlemen, this is being realized
now. Finally. And we're seeing it in spots here and there. The thing is, once this momentum starts, we can't let up. Our founders knew the corrupt
minds of man and planned for that. Are we that ignorant that we will ignore it until our country collapses?
Nope. It's time Democrats paid the piper in the election booth, then in the courts.
