If it takes 40 years to shake off my political ideology, I would be in the running for World's Oldest Human, a distinction not without its perils.

One idea? One orthodoxy? Outright rejection of a fellow American's notion of governance or morality? That doesn't bring on Capraesque patriotic love.
What does THIS bring on ? >>>

I live in northeast Ohio, right where West Virginia and Pennsylvania meet Ohio. Hunting is to this area as skiing is to avail. Every even numbered year, the gun lobby starts telling us the Democrats are coming for our guns. Today's message is Biden wants to eliminate Social Security and Medicare. Two socialist programs, by the way.

When do you suppose mature, cogent Americans start to make conclusions about the messages of dread and fear we hear so often?

And you did not address my criticism of your call for one party rule

But there's another big debate problem for Biden. Big enough to derail his whole campaign. His credibility, as evidenced by his recent FALSE statements regarding Social Security.

They will address it after they read the Intercept article I posted, and discover that Biden is about the biggest enemy Social Security ever had (for 47 years). And yes, he is a big enemy of the 2nd Amendment too.


As for "one party rule", I don't know what you're talking about.

And you did not address my question >> "What does THIS bring on ?"

It's a curious thing. You claim Biden is a socialist. Yet you are concerned with how Biden plans to gut two socialist programs, Social Security and Medicare. You can't have it both ways.

And when you reject out of hand the political notions of your fellow citizens, tag them with what you consider to be epithets and ascribe political motives that are figments of conspiracy theorists, you are, by default, advocating one party rule.

I did ? When did I claim Biden is a socialist ? I don't recall that.

I don't have anything any "both ways" Again, I don't know what you're talking about. This seems to be getting to be a habit with you. Saying things about me I never heard of.

There is only one way, and it has been consistently THAT WAY for 47 years. That is that Biden has been against Social Security, and Medicare, and Medicaid, and VA benefits, and has attempted to cut all these. Details are in the link. Ho hum.

Suppose you tell us how in your mind I did this >> "reject out of hand the political notions of your fellow citizens, tag them with what you consider to be epithets and ascribe political motives that are figments of conspiracy theorists," I don't know what you're talking about there either.

So you equate the simple statement of FACT of the leftist, biased media with "reject out of hand the political notions of your fellow citizens, tag them with what you consider to be epithets and ascribe political motives that are figments of conspiracy theorists,"
and then proceed to say that I endorse one party rule.

You sir, are insane.

We see truth differently. We have different ideas on how to create a more perfect union. But what we have in common is love of our country. Trumpians do not own the franchise rights of patriotism.

I would prefer someone who takes the responsibility of the presidency seriously.

There is more to leadership than ‘owning the Libs’. There is trustworthiness be it in business or governance. There’s empathy a quality every civilized person should have by age 13.

Limbaugh has an interesting theory that Biden will avoid the debates by claiming that he has to quarantine, because someone in his campaign tested positive and that he was in close contact with him.
Yeah, Limbaugh is known to talk out his a**. I wouldn't give much credence to his "opinion".

Nobel Peace Nominee Rush H. Limbaugh has his opinions audited and they have been found to be correct more than 99% of the time as per the Sullivan Group.

President Trump is a leader, because he's a man of action unlike Slow Joe. Has every project he's embarked on succeeded? Of course not.
