While you say that, it seems more like your arguments and purely left wing article links are more like cult-ish behavior.

whenever the cult of "i got mine so you can just go f-yourself" takes over, my finances usually take a hit.

Many cults can use that same strategy with many different promises, coming at you from many different angles, all to accomplish the exact same things, to look out for them and not you.

I mean as if Trump cares about the poor working class american, so how does he end up with support from them. I mean my dad is homeless, been screwed by the system repeatedly been in jail ect. But he's falling for some of the right wing propaganda...and well they shove it out everywhere so granted some people are going to be netted in. I mean our system has screwed over people like my dad, and he thinks socialism would be bad. He doesn't even understand that a lot of socialists and people more friendly to that idea want to help people in his situation. Like I would like him to have a safe and healthy place to live out the rest of his life, I don't see capitalism getting him that. However with more socialistic type policies maybe people like my dad could have some help and get housing. But all that right wing propaganda is out there convincing people any kind of socialism whatsoever is evil, thing is it would help so many of the poor who are deluded into thinking Trump and his GOP will do anything for them.


There is always a need for balance...
I don't know that much about the US political system, but here in Oz, left-wing politics has tended, with a few exceptions, to focus on welfare, affordable housing, etc and generally less so on building a strong economy...

Here in Oz, the left tends to have no problem with debt and we have seen a pattern repeat itself many times:
Labor is elected and is responsible for big spending, causing huge debt...
The conservatives then come in to fix the financial mess...

Having said that, due to many reasons that are irrelevant to this discussion, I think it is time for a political change here in Oz.
I see myself as an independent/impartial observer rather than a fanboy of any political orientation...
I.E.
I am happy to dump on either side of the political divide... :mrgreen:

To be sure, all you have to do is listen to how Trump voters answer questions:
About the space force: "ISIS might send a drone up into space with a bomb."
About Latino immigration: "They're bringing Ebola and leprosy into America."
About what President Obama was doing in the White House during 9/11: "I don't know, but I'd sure like to know."

That sounds hardly a fair assessment...
Here in Oz, there is a very feral far left fanatical element causing a great deal of mischief...
While I like to lambast them...(well truthfully, I get catharsis from pulling their tails... :mrgreen: ), I realise they are not representative of the entire spectrum of left-leaning individuals...
One day I want to look into the actual percentage of arseholes on either side of the political divide... 8)

This individual seems to be more than a tag emotional...
This is in keeping with how I see many left-wing leaning individuals...
Casual studies suggest left-wing proponents tend to be more emotionally oriented while those on the right are more focused on rationalism...

But he could simply be on the rim of the political left bell curve...<shrug>

This may sound biased but I think simple observation supports the...errr...observation... 8O

Sure, not every conservative is stupid, but I think the jury is in concerning how there are many really stupid right wingers.

Someone saying something doesn't make it true. Look at your typical SJW argument, riddled with contradiction that is very easy to spot with very little effort, that makes up at least 12% of the population, that is 42 million confirmed morons all a part of the left. The left seems to be really immature, all they seem to know how to do is name call like 7 year olds.

So your argument was simply destroyed. That's 42 million complete morons all a part of the left.

funny you mention that, because I don't and I understand that they strongly exist on the left and the right.
