United States Politics Thread
Things are changing, and they're gonna change more.





Well, it's that time again, I am once again shifting politically.

I am now more or less centrist.

As I have witnessed the growing extremes in the left, and the right. And I increasingly find myself feeling alien in either category, I realize I belong to neither.

Communism/Socialism - Command Economy that is founded in the despair and loss of an out of control capitalistic system.

Fear of Communism/Socialism - Maintained by the out of control capitalistic system to avoid any regulation over markets.

These are the two opposite ends of the candlestick that have been gnawing at me, fundamentally.
Authoritarian to Anarcho. And it feels like each side is either all in on one or the other. The left is all in on pushing toward socialism
and socialistic positions, and the right is all in on maintaining an out of control capitalistic system the moves all it's power to a select few.

These are basically the same end result, with opposing theories.

In a communist/socialist society, the power of economic control is handed to the government. The government inevitably uses it's newly found leverage to maintain power and stagnate upward mobility. Keeping the masses down gives them power over said masses. "Do what I say or you won't get your stimulus check."

In a capitalist society which has removed nearly all regulation, and is ruled by monopolies or manipulated pseudo polyopolies, uses it's wealth leverage to crush competition and stagnate upward mobility. Keeping the masses down gives them power over the masses. "Do what I say or you won't get your pay check."

We as Americans have fallen down these tribal lines. where there is no difference in outcome, and it the entirety of the battle is just cultural differences. We the people, once ran this country, but now it is ran by fear mongering and othering elitists. It's all too easy to fall down these rabbit holes. They appeal to the emotion of being the outsider, which most of us are.

One promises us false hope in the form of a reformation of government so the other is out of power. The other promises us false hope of reinforcement of government so the other is out of power.

Unless we recognize we need to use (that which would be mindlessly deemed socialist by the right) to maintain a free and fair market,
(which would be seen as being a capitalist bootlicker by the left) nothing will get better.

A free and fair market is not one in which there are no rules or regulations.
When the United States declared itself to be free from the British government, it was not anarchy.
There were laws and rules in place which determined how things were to be run, and limitations on power.

A free and fair market is regulated to keep those with obscene power from abusing said power to manipulate the market.

These objectives were misconstrued by the right in the 50s and 60s by using the communist excuse. "It will give the other power if we don't deregulate."

Then on the other side, the left dishonestly used this situation to claim that "capitalism is bad, become communist." ignoring the fact america is not a capitalist country. We are a democratic republic. We don't run our government based on the almighty dollar, nor should we. Even now, it's still unacceptable to publicly display yourself as a politician of the dollar. It's certainly an open secret there is corruption in the government, but the fundamental foundation is still clearly there. We are not capitalist, capitalism is not our founding value. But simply because we're not capitalist, does not mean we're therefore communist either.

over regulation of the market is as dangerous as no regulation, a balance must be struck so that the average person has more power than the anarchists and the command economists. We once had a sense of community and family, and I sense that many of us still do. But most of us have fallen into the social media casino that is twitter and facebook. These are hyper condensed social niches of crazy ideas stuck together to grow outward. This is how extremist ideologies grow. They grow in the dark or in plain sight under blind eyes. It's easy to shine the light on the dark, it's more difficult to get people to look.

While it is certainly easy to convince most right now there is a problem on the right, it's difficult to convince people there is a problem on the left, and nearly impossible to convince both there are problems on both sides contributing to this growing division. We've become emotional, distrustful and tribal.

If we don't break free from this terrible mindset, we are heading to one authoritarian dystopia or another. And neither will be pretty.

I recognize this focused mostly on the economic part of things, and not the cultural issues. But I consider those to be secondary issues because of the need pyramid.



Before the issue of cultural differences can even be discussed, the most fundamental issues need to considered first.

And all bare bone basic needs are funded by money and regulated by government.

Is this legal?
How will this apply to those with medical conditions keeping them from being vaccinated?

most people take their everyday freedoms for granted and won't come to realize what they have lost until it's too late

When people wake up and realize "we're actually national socialist germany now" it'll be way too late.
The only way to stop an authoritarian takeover is to stop it early.

It's not too late to stand up now. I understand, for many it would be crossing party lines.
But after what happened in NYC it should be obvious that the Establishment doesn't care
about right or left. The only reason they sided with the Left is because the Left empowered
them. It was in the hope they could alter the establishment and make it more like them.
However, time and again, the left became the establishment when given any political office.
As it had happened time and again when those on the right had done the same.

This is divide and conquer. The Populist Left and Right have so much in common, yet the
establishment uses what we disagree on to divide us. I recognize we have genuine disagreements.
But there is a time when those disagreements need to be put aside, and that time is now.

To those on the Left that see the right as evil, are you aware the Populist Right hates corporations as much as you?
To those on the Right, are you aware that the Populist Left wants to even the playing field between corporations
and locally owned businesses? And to you both, are you aware the establishment on each other's side are
Intentionally using the opposite's worst fears to make you ignore that.
Democrats tell the Right, they're socialist and these are socialist policies.
Republicans tell the Left, they're nationalist, and these are nationalist policies.
When in reality they are neither.

When the Right says they want to restrict major corporations, the Republicans claim to be nationalist and Democrats say's they're fascists.
When the Left says they want to even the playing field, the Democrats say they're socialists and Republicans say they're communists.

They're using fear of the other to keep us from pushing truly effective policies from either side.

Then behind our backs, they slowly rip away our rights, as they have ever since 9/11 and no doubt before that.

If we do not stand together today, we will be subjugated together tomorrow.

Mount St. USD is about to Blow Up and it's gonna be a fine swell day.

Song for Reference.

I believe the American people are ready for something better. This is our moment to prove hope is more powerful than fear, love is more powerful than hate, and light is more powerful than darkness.

tl;dr
Annoying Orange did in 4 years, what obama couldnt do in eight and biden couldnt do in 40.

He made change, positive change.

The riots are the fault of dem cities releasing rioters after arrest and refusing national guard help.

The coronavirus response has been way better than the media has made it out to be. 

Oh, and democrats dont have a spine, they run to get elected, not to make change.
