    A question for Trump supporters really but I am happy for non supporters to chime in.

    What level of dissent is acceptable and what form should it take ?

    This to include press,government agencies and the wider public.

    Dissent is fine, it's the non stop lying that I'm fed up with. You are one of the worst. Trump "reportedly" did this....Trump could have" done this....blah blah blah.....

    So would you be looking to put a stop to this ?
    BTW I accept that there is some embroidery out there but not all of it.

    if your side were in power, what level would you consider appropriate?

    start there.

    but seriously - being vocal *is* 100% american. being violent cause you don't like the other guy's opinions? that is not. calling speculation news is not.

    be a productive part of the system in any way you can. even in dissent. but don't be destructive on either side. no one wins those.

    I demand folks tell the truth and I demand the corporate media give a reasonable accounting of both sides.

    I think if you disagree with the policies of the government then you have every right to work against them in a legal way.

    A strong opposition is a necessity in a democracy.

    Similarly the press should fully investigate possible wrong doing.

    i agree. you have every right. in a legal non-violent threatening way. strong opposition - i suppose that depends but if you feel that strongly about something - sure. i can even see it today cause both extremes are so jaded and the rest in teh middle tired of the kids fighting.

    and the press should. 100%. but they should also not play favorites and just demand the truth.

    Government agencies and officials are NOT to take sides against the President. NO dissent is allowable there. All of those people should be fired, and possibly charged.

    The Press should NOT take sides and constantly lie and smear half the nation.

    Government officials work for us and not the head of state. They have a responsibility to whistle drop if bad things are happening.

    Policy is to be decided by the elected representatives of the People, not un elected government officials.

    When they try to do that, they are going to far.


    When Gen McCarthy tried to make his own Foreign policy, he was rightfully fired.


    Do you agree?
