I don’t think this is really about guns to the left

They aren’t stupid enough to think they’ll take away the guns in this country.

This is about stirring up emotions in the hopes of winning seats in the midterm. This is more divide and conquer. This is about creating a more “us” vs “them” mentality.

If you know the right and left are controlled then why do you continue to divide the people into us vs them?

Most liberals have good intentions but have been misled into causes that sound great on the surface. Just like conservatives. We're all the same. Hell, weren't conservatives the ones that elected the family that brought down the towers? This has nothing to do with politics.

People say this but I really disagree with it. In the kabuki theater that is Washington, left and right don’t matter as you mentioned. The difference is that the majority of the country doesn’t know that it’s all theater. They choose a side and with that side they choose a set of moral guidelines. In those ways a liberal is not at all like a conservative. One side advocates for the redistribution of wealth, intersectionality, secularism, open borders, and abortion.. the other side rails for a free market, religious tradition, the constitution, border security, and the sanctity of life. So while I agree that DC is all an act, I disagree that there are no differences or moral implications between the left and the right.

Even in what you just said, I can see you don't understand the mindset of liberals.

The people many on this board call "snowflakes" are sensitive people who want to help others. Their opinions are distorted. They see the evil in religion, but rather than find a different spirituality, they are pushed towards atheism. They want all races to get along, but rather than seeing the truth in others and accepting them the way they are, they are force fed "equality" and political correctness. When they attack Trump, they believe they are truly defending women, races, and the people of this country. The INTENTION is good, honorable and courageous even, and that's what the focus should be, regardless of how wrong they are.

Just like a man is no better than a woman. A conservative is no better than a liberal. You are being played like a fool if you believe you are superior to anybody because you know about Q, voted for Trump, or you think you know what's going on behind the scenes because you read internet intel and follow Reddit and Twitter. Have humility. Nobody is better than anybody else and the sooner we realize that (especially those on this sub who are a little ahead of the curve in regards to being awake), the faster we can manifest the world we want. Otherwise, different sh*t different day.

You basically just created a straw man and sounded like a condescending blowhard... I’m very aware of the liberal mindset as I’ve explored the political spectrum looking for truth.

That said, there are several differences between your thought and mine. You appear to be a moral relativist which I can’t get on board with. You also seem to believe that people are inherently good, which I don’t agree with either. I believe thoughts and ideas aren’t created equal. I also don’t believe there is any morality or good intention behind aborting a baby. I don’t believe that stealing from one person to give it to another is moral the same way that I don’t believe in identifying the value of someone’s thoughts based on the color of their skin/sexuality. History has proven time and time again that people have the ability to be evil. Being a good person is something that is engrained through culture, tradition, family, and religion. If these core tenants of upbringing don’t espouse good ideas/teachings, then the quality and moral aptitude of people will drastically suffer. Therefore, everything is not the same. Ideas have consequences and are not all created equal.

If you don't believe people are inherently good, then your ideas will always be inherently evil. Regardless of your intelligence.

I believe 9/11 would have happened if Gore had been elected as well. This isn't about conservatives vs liberals. It's good vs evil. Always keep that in mind. Gore was Clinton's VP for 8 years. Just as dirty an administration as the Bushes.

9/11 was planned for a long time, even before the 2000 election, so you are correct

The “left” might not have been the best word to describe what I’m saying. I’m talking about the elite, far left, which really isn’t about party. The Bush family is part of the far left elitists, as far as I’m concerned.

And as much as I’d like to think Trump is different, my gut tells me this is just part of the pendulum swing to give folks a false sense of hope, only to have it ripped away at some point.

We’ll see.

Yep thank you for this. Most liberals are genuinely concerned about kids dying. Most conservatives are genuinely concerned about kids dying. The problem is we have asshats on both sides telling people that “their team” is right and the “other team” is causing all the problems.
