Re: And that is indeed....
If I "aattck you with nothing" then I should be easy to ignore. All your attacks on me deserve far worse than I can give out, I'll agree with that.

The advantages of a liberal democratc republic
But you can always move to Siberia if you like.

Naw. I have nothing to say against those who decide they need to leave, I feel I have my duty to do what I can to try to make things a little better. Even if those efforts are miniscule.

-

I assume I live in the same house and I consider him to be building it up.

You see? This is what I'm talking about - this is the way it's supposed to work. You have beliefs, I have beliefs. You try to convince people you're right, I try to convince people I'm right, You try to keep an open mind and be prepared to admit you're wrong, I try to keep an open mind. In the meantime, you do what needs to be done to keep our elected officials in line, I do the same. In the end, we vote.

You certainly are free to move to siberia if you want, but I haven't yet lost faith (not completely) in the democratic process.

What are you blathering on about? I was answering a typical accusation that has nothing to do with anything you said.

I'm just trying to help you.

Glad to see you no longer have to resort to all capital letters.
Progress!

Started a movie on Netflix, it calmed me down, nothing to do with goings-on here. More of the same from the Leftists will get more of the same from me.

Re: The advantages of a liberal democratc republic
There has never been such a divide in this country as now exists with the seething hatred of Trump on the Left, the vicious lies against him and against those of us who voted for him. It is more likely to destroy the liberal democratic republic than be mitigated by it. The behavior o the Left is far beyond anything we've ever seen before. I don't see recovery as possible from such essentially anticivilized doings.

I don't think it's hatred as much as disgust. Politics aside, he's a pig (no insult to pigs intended).

And our geese will blot out the sun.

Well done!

We all have different ways of calming down.
The more you understand your own, the more control you'll have over your own rationality.

The trick is to understand that others will have their own method - yours may not necessarily work for them.
And knowing that this by-no-means undercuts your personal method in any way.

Using such logic, we can all learn to live peacefully together.

More of the same from the Leftists will get more of the same from me.

Eh.
I never had much use for grudges.

Correcting Faith
quote:

There has never been such a divide in this country as now exists

Largely thanks to the hate-monger’s of the Right. I am sure that you are very proud of it.

quote:

...with the seething hatred...


Coming from Trump’s supporters, as you have so amply demonstrated.

quote:

...the vicious lies...


Spoken by Trump and many of his supporters (the latter, again, amply demonstrated by you)

Trump...

quote:

...is more likely to destroy the liberal democratic republic than be mitigated by it

Or at least that is what you hope for. I do not forget your railing against any court that dares to come to a decision you dislike - without ever considering the law, nor the facts of the case.
Nor do I forget that your idea of justice is protecting the guilty on your side will using false accusations to persecute political opponents.

The Right

Perhaps.

quote:

I don't see recovery as possible from such essentially anticivilized doings.

Again, that is what you hope.

I'd argue the Civil War, with traitor/slavers like Robert E. Lee leading the charge, was surely as hateful & divisive as what we are experiencing today.

Your mileage may vary, I suppose, but I think over 600,000 dead is devastating.

Re: The advantages of a liberal democratc republic
And don't get me started on the bitter struggles between the Hamilton Federalists and Jefferson Republicans in the half dozen years on either side of 1800! I'm amazed that civil war didn't break out at that time!

Re: The advantages of a liberal democratc republic
And the Presidential campaigns of the early 19th century. Think of what they could have done with modern capabilities.

Trump still takes the cake, though.

and more recently...
... the period in the US from the end of the Eisenhower Administration through the end of the Nixon Administration when whole cities were burning, National Guard Troops were firing on students, police were protecting KKK groups that were burning black churches and killing both black and white students and setting dogs on peaceful demonstrators. When a Big City mayor authorized fire bombing a row house because the occupants refused to surrender to the police and republican Governors made carrying any loaded gun illegal to make sure that Black Citizens could not protect themselves from sanctioned police violence.

Terrorist legislators!
From the Guardian:

Revealed: Republican lawmaker and ally urged crowd to prepare for civil unrest

It seems the tin-foil hat brigade is still preparing for the apocalypse.

I would hope these clowns are just a small minority of the current Right Wing, but in any case I'm usually a little anxious when nervous twitchy people are holding guns.

Added by edit:

Oops, I misread the article. The fool Shea is a member of the Washington state legislature, not Congress.

Edited by Chiroptera, : No reason given.

Edited by Chiroptera, : Deleted refrence to Ilhan Omar - comment didn't make sense since Shea isn't in Congress.

Also corrected title.
