:shrug: bigotry is bigotry. You've demonstrated clear bigotry towards the Other that would totally freak you out if someone were to repeat the logic back to you but with the noun changed. Entertainingly, you would probably use such an argument as providing supporting evidence for your own :p

Yeah, Rick, you queers are a bunch of bigots. I can't understand why you hate the political party that has done so much for you and other sodomites. You and Jefferey will both burn in Hell.

I'm not interested in your any of your opinions, just the facts, ma'am. smile I get that Conservatism is not a choice and that you're born that way, but do better and not be so smug. Try harder to overcome that which inflicts you. laugh


smile Between the two of us, I'm not worried about coming off as smug, or at having failed so badly in the ability to rationally assess the strengths and weaknesses of my own ideological side as well as that of others.

Though it only tangentially relates, I hope one day you are able to get over your anger at your parents. frown Learning to love broken people* is hard, but it can be a worthy thing to do.
*Synonym for "any people"

My parents were symptoms of Conservative thought process which I didn't clearly embrace. What rational person would? Hmm

It's just like a bigoted Conservative to call marginalized groups like gays and black Americans bigots.

Smug people who do that who are also always from the wrong side of history have some nerve.

Supportive evidence like scientific peer-reviewed studies vs Conservative opinions. I know which side you choose. smile

I suspect that the civil war begins when Trump is no longer president <sigh>

Oh, I have often wondered what would have happened if Trump decided to remain a Democrat and run under that banner.

My suspicion is that I suspect dark things.

We HAD such a moment already.
Lyndon LaRouche!

And the lightweight version: Larry Flynt, who ran as a Republican only to piss off the Republicans.

I'm not saying that it's impossible to imagine Trump trying to run as a Dem, I'm saying that it would scare the crap out of so many of them that he'd be dead in the water before the first primaries.

While it's not impossible for a populist scoundrel to gain the Democratic nomination, I don't think it would be someone like Donald Trump. Democrats are not so much enamored with the idea of someone who knows nothing about politics being better qualified for the job than someone who does.

As far as civil war goes, I think it unlikely. Republican law enforcement officers shoot Republican scofflaws practically every day. For every black person shot there are three whites killed. Mostly republicans as they are more likely to be petty criminals.

I'm basing that on the number of lawmakers and party operatives in each party who are charged with and convicted of crimes.

Oh they wouldn't have to be "just like" Trump...but they might still be every bit as crooked.
