Time marches on; old racists and red baiters die off, young folks are mostly left-leaning. White people will soon be a minority nationwide. This brand of jackass conservative politics is coughing up its last phlegmballs as it dies. There's nothing you or I can do about it. After all the forestalling, media embargoing, gerrymandering, cheating, foreign interference, and false populism have played out, the pendulum will finally swing hard towards economic and racial justice.

First we'll have to endure some Democrats, though, until we come up with something better.

It's like Bapu said: "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Ive travelled all over this world, spoke with thousands of people . If theres one thing I noticed, the people who THINK, they know whats best for everyone else , and want to use FORCE thru laws, govt , to institute THEIR agendas upon others, or take away the rights other have , are often psychopaths . Freewill should have certain limitations, when it results in very nefarious and violent actions, but for anyone to insinuate they know whats right for everyone else and we need laws to force that, is truly a sign of a mentally ill person.

Furthermore, it is shear insanity for anyone to suggest, laws or socialism will eliminate traits of racism, discrimination and prejudice, in a world of 7 billion people. You aint gonna erase those inherent character traits in the human race. How in the hell are you gonna get 2 billion muslims, to not be prejudice against non muslims ? How in the hell are you gonna get white supremacists to not be prejudiced against blacks ? How in the hell are you gonna get talmudust jews , to not despise gentiles ? How are you gonna get black violent gang members to start loving white people ?


Keep dreaming, because thats all it is.

Well, I would have said ‘always extremists’, but ‘often psychopaths’ has a very close meaning to me. :wink:

Yes, its one thing for a person to say they THINK things are wrong , its another for a person to say they want to see laws and the use of force against others to implement THEIR AGENDAS upon everyone else in a society. These are dangerous , sick minded people, and I see many of them coming from the liberal, socialist, self entitlement groups around in todays world.

Traditionally, the left had always been very moderate in America. But it is true that there are more left extremists now. The right had produced a lot of extremists in the American history, with many events of interior terrorism.

The best future is in between. People with common sense always prefer compromises to force, and common sense is growing slowly, but surely. The problem is that our democracy is biased by political parties that are definite extremes, thus we can only vote for leaders who are too much on the left, or the right. The moderate is not often reaching the top of the pyramid in a party.

That is part of the problem , the other big problem is a corrupt monopolized media , that is not held accountable for the endless lies and propagandas they report, that divide, confuse people In society. CNN is just as evil and destructive as FOX NEWS. Most mainstream media is monopolized and controlled by 1 specific group of individuals.
This is also very dangerous, and anti-trust laws and nepotism laws should have stopped such a event, but it didn't. Now we are stuck with a completely untrustworthy media on tv, newspapers , radio, etc. Very dangerous.

Yes, its ironic how the playing field has changed. I used to side with the left, years ago , but now the left has become more looney and dangerous, then the right, IMHO. I cant imagine any sane person, agreeing with people like MAXINE WATERS, CHUCKIE SCHUMMER, DIANE FEINSTEIN , NANCY PELOSI. I think these people are demons. Just like I thought John Mcain, Bush Sr, Bush Jr, were demons.

The power of the media empires is coming to an end, because media publishing is getting affordable to the people. Of course there will always be lies, but it is getting much more difficult to hide. Video recording is in the people hands everywhere. The popular voice has a diffusion spread that is going to expose the liars and the corrupted sooner, better. The future of democracy is going to be real time popular expression. We are soon finished electing governments that can abuse of their majority for a whole term.

Not sure I agree with your optimisms. Yes, video recording and audio recording is now common place in society, BUT, altering / manipulating those things via CGI and audio technologies is now easier then ever to the point that we cannot even trust what we see on video/photos or hear on audio . This isn't the information age, it is the mis-information age . I had a friend, of very limited computer skills, take a photo he had, and photo shopped it. You couldn't even tell the photo had been tampered with, and he did this on a inexpensive laptop, with minimal computer skills.

Make no mistake about it, in the same way that TPTB have used TV against society, TPTB will also use their ability to manipulate and alter video and audio, for endless social experimentations. I personally see VERY dangerous times ahead , largely because the main people In charge of finance, banking, media, tv programming, newspaper publishing ,etc are wealthy sociopaths , whose #1 goal, is to protect the wealth and power of their entourage.

Don’t worry. In a time when leaders were elected for their writings instead of their face and media hype, one of yours had written: ‘You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.’

Yeah, but in this day and age, the sociopaths in charge only have to fool a 51% majority to turn the U.S into a socialist society where many freedoms are stripped away under the guise of a free monthly check.

I can hear you cheering at your proclamation of " white people will soon be a minority nationwide" . Why do you hate white people so much ? And you insinuate others are the racists, and you aren't ? Dont get me wrong, in America, you have the right to like or dislike anyone you want, but im curious why you have so much hate for the white race ?

I'm curious, frankly, why you're like you are? Who burned your ass, to get you ranting away like this? Do you talk like this in person, with everyone you meet - "demons", "psychopaths", "hate for the white race"? Is everyone like that, where you live?

In Russia, we all love each other. :wink:

Im not the one, who supports a socialist system that strips away the rights and freedoms of American citizens.
