But, as far as I can tell, most of the people who rant the loudest, when it comes time to vote for their representatives in government, ....they re-elect the same folks who are driving the issue in the first place.


Seems a bit strange that so-called 'conservatives' vote to perpetuate the same thing that seems to make them so angry.

Why do you call me a conservative? I am a Patriot, something you would not understand.

I do fight the elites. I buy American when I can, and I go out of my way to do just that. Hell, our jeans that we wear in our house were all made in the USA. Can you say the same? I doubt it.

Next time you decided to personally attack me then be prepared to get it back because you have to stop hiding behind certain moderators here that protect you. I do plenty else but I am not stuck in a school learning nothing but propaganda material and knowing nothing about the real world.

That whole post you made is nothing but a direct personal attck toward me and will not be tolerated since I am not allowed to do the same.

I didn't call you a conservative, nor did I express any opinion about whether you were a patriot, or not.

Can I say the the jeans I wear in my house were all made in China?

Why would I say that? I avoid products made in China. I've had a number of conversations on this forum about that very subject.

But to answer your question, no, all the jeans in my house aren't made in China.

I've never been one to hide, and it's unimportant to me if you're not in school, ..I'm not in school either, ....though one can learn quite a bit in a school, ....if there were a university close by I might drop in from time to time.

None of that post was a direct personal attack on you, Ozark Baby, like I said before, (and is plain to see), my post was directed at the collective people as a whole, the people as a whole who tend to ignore the big picture and narrowly focus their attention on lesser causes of what seems to make them angry, and then they tend to vote for the very same people who are responsible for formulating the policies that result in making them so angry.

You are now on ignore because you not lie but you post personal attacks and then deny it when everyone can see otherwise.

Calling me a racist and a bigot in past threads is not a personal attack? Give me a break.

I doubt that Ozark-Baby was referring to you; she was referring to a Troll.

Here thee, here thee. Why must we block people we disagree with? Sounds like the FBI censuring and dismantling the Black Panthers.

PL - I'm about to agree with the others - if you cannot respond in a polite and civil manner, I'm going to put you on ignore also
