    As usual, you didn't answer the question.

    The left is at the point where they are now openly embracing socialism after denying it for decades. This country was founded on and was built into the greatest power the world has ever seen because of capitalism. They are trying to tear down what this entire country was built on, and I don't see that as opinion. If some asshat wants to live like a stinky, lazy European, then move to damn Europe and renounce your citizenship. As a lucky American, you have the freedom to do just that.

    For whatever little I can do, I will fight it every damn step of the way.

      A good example of not everyone can be put in a neat and tidy box. Many Americans see the pluses and minuses of each party. I would like to think that people vote for the candidate and not the party. But I am not sure that happens too often. I hear too often of Americans voting party regardless of the quality/character of the candidate.

        I see very few plusses of either party.

        That wasn't the issue really anyway. We were discussing the fact that coach reflexively defends--vehemently and often ignoranatly-- anyone in one certain box, even people that, no doubt, hold opinions he woukd never adopt himself.

          Sorry boys.........I posted some words basically about civility and trying to listen and get a sh#T show. Call me what you want but
          and as usual you ask me if Im still beating my wife questions..........Like I said I dont answer/ask moronic questions unless they are mainstream (WWJD) and btw never get answers to those either. WHose side would the founding fathers be on? Please? You now speak for men dead over 200 years ago? You must be a savant. Wonder if they ever thought we would go back to England and beyond to save them and the world when they only knew them as oppressors. That the gun they held sacred could become a weapon, if transported back in time (like your imagination) could defeat an entire army but that same gun so unlike their gun becomes sacrosanct in our modern society.............I dont know, Ox. Probably on your side cause you are so fckn smart and know exactly what America is and should be. I guess it lets you sleep well seeing everything in black and white. Us against them. Lock and load, boys...............smfh

            I will leave it here.
            That was what I said. I know it makes some of the normal TRumpian tweets seem benign with all MY flame, anger and hate but
            I was proposing nothing more than lowering the volume and increasing a more civil discourse. My apologies boys.........have a "happy" fourth.

              Not quite sure who you are having a discussion with, but I plainly quoted what I took issue with that you posted.

              You haven't responded.

              Hope you have a safe and happy Independence Day too sir.

                    Windy's been a great sport with all of the back and forth...
                    Agree with him or not, at least he's prevented this forum from becoming an echo chamber.
                    Even though he's wrong all the time

                        If someone can rationally answer a question for me...since when is it acceptable to compare any sitting POTUS to a madman who slaughtered 6 million Jews, with zero repercussion?

                          That has been every Republican president since I've been alive.
