Now that the election is over, should we continue to fight and cannibalize each other like we have for the last 100 years or should we try to find, if anything, that we might share common ground on and focus on that? I personally have nothing in common with the left and I know of nothing that anyone on the left would compromise on. The left has owned the narrative for the last 50 years. What would someone on the left move to the right on, so to speak? I can think of nothing. Can you? The right has been caving for 50 years. In my opinion we should pick sides and go to war with one another, how about you.?
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

There's no common ground.

I can't say they've owned the narrative (Reagan, contract with America took up huge swaths of the 80s and 90s) but they've owned the media.

Actually this election did unite rural dems with the right. However the left-right split is getting dated as the 'sides' are morphing into something completely different. The right is definitely not poli-sci conservative and the progressive is actually more corporatist even while railing against.

It's like the twilight zone.

I was farting around on youtube, and came up with something I have never seen before:

There's actually a movement to disobey the law of a nation....sweet jesus.

I'm actually well versed in it. Sovereign citizens are out there, however sovereigns (pre14th amendment language) ... we clearly distinct ourselves from them and the post 14th amend of citizen.

Think of it in John Locke's 'life, liberty, property'... before we changed it. My rights end where yours begin 'property'. It's a more articles vs constitutional view of the fed concentrating power in state constitutions (it's also why sovereigns distinct from sov citizen. We respect the state just ultra Leery of the fed. Sov citizens think , well...lol)

It will never happen. As Ben Shapiro said, people are not taught policy, just that the other side is evil.

I've been sayin that for awhile, but now I think I'm just getting to the point where I'm cashin in my chips and just letting people be crazy. They can do what they want and I'll just keep livin my life. Just need my dog, my gun, beer, a fishin rod, and if it gets that bad, I'll start smokin too and gett'r done with.

A huge problem is that America's major parties already agree on far too much.

If it can be de-centralized, it will be de-centralized.
