I decided to tune out when Obama was in. I knew all the stuff they would pull was bad and decided I just didn't need the details. Made my stomach churn whenever he came on TV, didn't want to hear a word of it.
Same thing with this fool of a President. No talk radio, no tv. I skim the news online, that's it.


you can vote your way into socialism, but you will have to shoot your way out.

Then don't be surprised when things change right under your nose.


Act like a blank, get treated like a blank. Insert your own blank!

I'd love to be able to do that. My life would no doubt be happier. However, I feel it my duty as a US citizen to pay attention to what is going on, even though it makes me sick. I did not serve my country. The least I can do is keep on eye out and do what I can to prevent it from being destroyed.

Many in this country (and on this site) are addicted to being outraged by every little thing. Whining and complaining are their hobbies. It's not a right or left phenomenon.

I see nothing wrong with your choice.

Keep exposing the truth and stop the lies from becoming the acceptable norm. You can question things here you can do it in other places also.

Yes expose the truth so others can see it. And mock them.

This is exactly whats going on now in our country. And Tucker exposes their plan. Mail in ballots again. Thats why all the covid panic started again. All the Afghans we brought in going to swing states.

Twolines, you're right in that there's not a LOT we can do, but there's not nothing we can do either. Calling a democrat congressperson probably won't have much effect, but calling a Rino can. Even if your congressperson is pretty far right, calling them helps by assuring them they're making the right decision.

I personally know of two people who were going to vote for Hillary but voted for Trump instead. Why? Because I worked with them, and every time a story would come up in the news we would talk about it, and I would explain to them how Trump would handle that issue versus how Hillary would. I've found that the vast majority of democrat voters aren't really liberal, they're just ignorant. They just vote for whoever is a smoother talker. When you educate those people about what is going on and what each candidate believes, it's surprisingly easy to change peoples minds.

My mother is 62 years old and has never voted in her life until 2020. She was one of those people who just "tuned out" politics all of her life. But she and her husband voted for Trump in 2020, because I actually got her to pay attention to what was going on in politics. Now she actually watches politics regularly! 4 votes in a presidential election isn't much, but 4 votes in a city or county election can change the outcome.

People, individually, can't do a lot but they can do a little. Right now there might be a 17 year old on this trapping forum who has parents that are "tuned out", and if it wasn't for our posts here, would be getting his only information about politics from his leftist school teachers. You just never know who your words or actions may affect.

If they were willing to do something they would have noticed the changes that came about in the last week but they looked the other way.

I was a late bloomer when it comes to cable TV so for a couple of decades was reduced to yelling liar at the alphabet news. I like watching them bob and weave the narrative. I got over the angst when most of America came to understand the media isn't to be trusted.

You and I are on the same page Dog, but I never said I look the other way those are your words not mine. I take action when I can I just don't wallow in it. More a matter of rationing than dwelling on the outrage. Like I said I skim the news and of course Tman keeps me posted on a lot of stuff too lol.

This could be a tipping point no better time to step it up and ride the wave some change might come out of this, maybe not until 2022 but letís hope itís coming. Agree you canít jump on everything you hear but at least the lies are being exposed now that were buried before by the next news cycle before.

Thats not me I'm what they call a super voter lol. "Tuned out" may not be the best description maybe more like 'toned down'

I try to tune out for short periods just to maintain my sanity. It's been worse lately, I just can't come to grips as to why anyone would have voted for Creepy Joe and his band of misfits.

I would say duplicity got us where we are today.

Either way if you read a little more you might find you jumped to conclusion if you're referring to me.
