    The big problem is they see the world as it should be, and, think they can force it.
    You can't.
    It's not a perfect world, and, like children, if you let them do anything they want, chaos and disaster ensue.

    Like most things in life, it's always a happy medium.

    But, we are in a divisive state of mind in this country. Maybe that is what we should really be concerned about.

    As a newcomer and a moderate, I most respectfully disagree with you.

    I have noticed the following:

    1. Many members, both so-called conservatives and so-called liberals, are very rude. (I, of course, never reply to them.)

    2. Conservatives on this board, in my opinion, do NOT have any more hatred for liberals than liberals have hatred for conservatives.

    3. One reason that some conservatives may find some liberals offputting is that some liberals are so cocksure of their righteousness. They often feel that they have the word on every topic and that anyone who disagrees with them is, well, a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, etc.

    4. Another reason, let's be frank, is that many liberals want to blame many of the nation's problems on Caucasian people who happen to be conservative. It is only natural that those members who are both Caucasian and conservative take umbrage at such a tactic. Many liberals refuse to even consider the possibility that maybe Caucasians are NOT the only ethnicity responsible for some of our problems (crime, immigration, etc.).

    *****

    If you visit other online politics forums, you will discover that they are usually heavily weighted in favor of liberals. It is often 95% anti-Trump. The other members do everything possible to drive the pro-Trump people away. Some forums are cozy little liberal clubs in which members spend their time slapping one another on the back for being fighters for social justice.

    We should be grateful that US Message Board allows all points of view.

    *****

    As one of the few moderate members, I do not have any illusions about either liberals or conservatives. Both sides have good points and bad points.

    It isn't so much that we are a divided country in so many ways, we've pretty much been that way since the getgo. It seems to me we've got too many people at the extremes that are taking over the national discourse and not enough moderates trying to bring us together, at least enough to cooperate and compromise. There are too many people in positions of political power who are more concerned with their own power or that of their party relative to the rest of us. And we don't vote those people out of office, we keep sending them back to Washington, so the problem is US, to some extent. We need to be more knowledgeable and active in our politics, and maybe we're moving in that direction (I hope so).

    Because Liberals are socialists and socialists are communist.
    I was taught in school that the only good communist was a dead communist

    Because they stand up for lawlessness, violence and will not tolerate any other political view points.
