All this talk about white supremacy from the left and I never seen a definition.

Actual white supremacy is the mainstream status quo position of democrats and republicans of a mostly white upper class and leadership in a supreme position over the rest of the US multi-racial populace.

What the left calls out white supremacy is at most just white separatism or in most cases just wanting to enforce the rather mild immigration laws we currently have.

Left wants gov to take care of people, even if it means no one moves up.
Right wants gov to police people to the brink of dictatorship.

Both lead to a sort of authoritarian state if left unchecked.

Think of it as a boat with two guys on each side. The water is authoritarian, one side pulls too much and everyone is in the water.


Two halves of the brain.

So describing the vibe, itís like someone severed the brain from the center and now neither side can make a connection..

I can't agree. The left wants globalism to take out white America to institute an authoritarian state and to profit. The right wants globalism to profit and maintain or increase relative supreme class position over most of the population.

X-Right:
Believes climate change is a conspiracy
Believes the free press is a threat to democracy
Believes that there is a "deep state" conspiracy that runs our government
Thinks that America is first and foremost a Christian nation

X-Left:
Decriminalizes illegal immigration
Believes we should give every person over 18 $10k per year for being alive
Believes education should be free
Believes we should give healthcare to illegal immigrants
Too anxious to play the race card

Most extremists lean towards totalitarianism. They can't get public support, so they want government to enforce their pet issues. Whatever they rant about is much less important than how they act on it.

- Free college education for everyone who wants one (regardless of G.P.A. or SAT scores)

EXTREME CONSERVATIVE

- No gun controls whatsoever
- No abortions regardless of the reason
Interesting. I believe gun control is unconstitutional, so am firmly against it. On the other hand, I couldnít care less about the abortion issue (although I will on occasion point out the hypocrisy of rabid pro-choicers calling for gun control).

Iím against all of the issues you call ďextreme liberal,Ē but thatís mainly because the government isnít endowed with the power to do any of them by the Constitution. If private citizens want to pay for those things, I have no issue with them.

Extreme left:
Communism

Extreme right:
Anarchy


There is very little difference between Republicans and Democrats. Theyíre both right authoritarian. Much ado about nothing.

As it is written is ambiguous and is the source of all the arguing that goes on here and elsewhere. SCOTUS relied on experts in 18th century legal documents to unravel the meaning of the infamous comma that separates the first and second clauses of 2A. I am not arguing either side of what 2A means, but it is probably the worst written sentence in our Constitution.
