As I stated above the picture seems very clear to me (I'd love to be wrong) and because of this I truly struggle with patience, understanding and humility with those who don't see what's happening.

That makes at least two of us. You're either incredibly naive to miss all the warning signs 95% of the people here saw coming or you're as disingenuous as I've previously accused you being. I think disingenuous is closer to the truth.

I think the odds are much better than even that this country comes to blows with itself before this is over and I don't think that's too far off of the horizon. We're just awaiting the trigger, all the words that need to be said have been spoken.

The more dependent we are on government the farther we move from a government by the people. And I don't see us moving away from government benefits (aka socialism).

James,

Perhaps there is now an opportunity to leverage your law career, writing skills, and liberal view point in convincing other folks who learn to the left that the 2nd Amendment should be vigorously defended on both sides of the aisle?

So what is the purpose of this thread? James isn't going to become a republican. Seems like he is just wasting time and doing what democrats do best makeing people feel sorry for them till they get their way. It doesn't matter there is a bunch more like James that will never change. Fence ridding isn't good for any cause.

If I pooh-poohed someone's doomsaying about Biden's anti-Second Amendment policies, I have to say this: you were right.

Now, before someone posts to accuse me of posting "click-bait," or urges others to skip the thread, why don't you just skip it yourself? Everyone who starts a thread wants to get replies. In this, I am as guilty as anyone else. I'm not trying to make anyone mad, but I would like to incite some thoughtful, civil replies.

Even if they're just to say, "I told you so, James."

Of course James was completely wrong on the 2A issue. And he made another mistake here--It's not enough to admit he was wrong. He must disclaim any dissenting view, swear loyalty to a failed leader, be outraged by the drama of the day and agree to never have another independent thought.

Although we may disagree on politics, it takes a lot of grit to admit you were wrong. Thank you for stepping up and actually admitting it.

Nope. I am just waiting for y'all to apologize to me for handing this country to Biden and the Democrats by enabling a bunch of idiots from 2016 to January 5, 2021

What lies are you talking about?

I made an error in judgment, that's all. I thought Biden had more important issues, like health care, to address.

Jim


So you still believe the democrat party to be a virtuous source of truth? More introspection for you.

And many didn't and men like James were silent when the gestapo came for them.

Nah, in a two party system he could have just voted for the party that supports America. You two narcissists like to ramble on and convince yourselves you are better or smarter than other people. I love this “new” catch phrase about anyone that supports or supported Trump was unable to think for themselves. Ironically “original”!

lesson for the future , when someone tells you they are bad , reaffirms it repeatedly , don't pass it of as Rhetoric. as Rhetoric is as damaging as the real threat it is either a lie or a lie or it isn't rhetoric and it is the truth.

leaving you with two options your being lied to or your lying to yourself.

I know your coming from a place where you tell lies , are told lies or lie to yourself.

thanks for trying on the truth


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
