    Noticed ole Eric Holder is mouthing off, advocating actions other than peaceful demonstrations. He should be charged with Fast & Furious scheme, resulting in death of Border Patrolman Terry.

    Two, actually. They hushed up the second one in Arizona. The rest of us when we got the e-mail could read between the lines. Eric Holder is a murderer that looks like a human sloth.

    We could make a long list. Don't forget Lerner or Kerry and of course the grand poobah himself, BHO. The pillars of the Republic are decayed with our own apathy, selfishness, and greed. It is difficult to do the right thing and much easier to do wrong.
    Filter that down to the general population and you see things like Portland. Hell, FN Chicago just ran a story where a guy built a bomb and planned to detonate it on election day. Parenting matters, respect for law and authority matter, compassion for our fellow man matters and people in general can not even do that.
    We are a mess as we continue to give God the middle finger. Sounds like I am going off topic from the OP subject but I guarantee, it IS all related.

    Yeah, heard that Holder said "If the republicans go low, kick them". It's rhetoric like that, no matter how he meant it, that sends people out to shoot others based on their political views, as if it's ok as long as they are on the opposite side of the spectrum. Trump had every right to slam him, talk like that IS dangerous.

    Ever since TWPE, (the worst president ever)
    Obama) and the left has had an agenda to bring our great country into a shit hole. To be perfectly clear, I am not going to sit back and watch that happen. And you shouldn't either. Let me be perfectly clear. I'm NOT preaching violence. What I am preaching however, is for those of us in here to unite and stand your ground and your values. Never trust a liberal.

    The radical left is killing itself. The center left makes up the majority of “the left” and they aren’t interested in all the insanity. The party has moved away from them and for many they are in a position where they now have more in common with the right.

    The wackjobs on TV constitute around 8-10% of the population. If you were to map them out I’m sure you would find them heavily centered around certain areas of the country. They are screaming and gnashing their way in to the history books.

    Meanwhile, the Republican Party is gaining popularity by simply not being raving lunatics. Sure, he media covers the protests and tries to twist the narrative but it’s not working. And the regressive left is combatting this by doubling and tripling down.

    The only thing the right needs to do to win this battle is to continue to stand up for free speech and individual liberty while making it clear they do not support leftist tactics no matter which side the actor is on.

    A few like to talk about fighting back using the Regressive lefts tactics against them. I will say that is a terrible plan. That’s like watching someone losing a chess game and deciding to adopt their strategy. You never copy they guy that’s losing unless you want to lose too.

    Several good points.

    Having spent time on the left coast and some in the NE, I would have to say that the left wingers are more like 30-40% of our population. We are largely sheltered here in Texas.

    I will have to find the report I’ve found sourced several times by both left and right leaning media. Although the left leaning media I watch is more of a liberal guy who does very centered coverage.

    To clarify my statements though. Only about 8-10% of the population constitutes the active left or fringe left. This compares to 25% of the population falling in to the category of traditional right. The remainder fall somewhere closer to center and are largely burnt out on the political battle taking place.

    So, far more than 8% of the population leans left. But most of the remainder aren’t completely insane and most would rather be left alone than force their will on others. The differences in politics still exist, and always will. But they don’t want to disband the senate and rewrite the constitution because they feel it’s unfair.

    I will see if I can find the source of the info. I would normally have questioned it a bit more already but both a lefty libertarian (Tim Poole) and Ben Shapiro discussed the findings reaching the same conclusion.

    For the traditional Dems there is a life long history of distrust of the Republican Party. The Democrats were supposed to be for the working man. Now the working man is being thrown out and Dems are left to consider what they believed to be the rich mans party. Many are realizing that regardless of how they feel about the Rs, the Dems have gone completely off the rails.

    Trumps rise is pretty interesting when you think about it though. He can be a real ass. He’s extremely wealthy. But he connected to the working class and suddenly the man the Dem party framed as Satan was pulling votes that had been given to Obama twice. At the same time, he’s a lifelong Dem who was suddenly pulling votes from the conservative base. In reality, he’s really not a conservative. He’s just very proud and protective of his country. I think that is what really crossed the party lines.

    How come when someone farts, most people are disgusted. But, that very same person who was digusted will eventually fart and not say a word. I've wondered about that most of my life. Strange. So, when someone farts and is busted, what's a person to do?

    I'm trying to figure out if that's a right turn or a left turn to the thread.
