I hardly think deliberately GOADING a group of liberals/Antifa and getting escorted out by the police is the MORAL EQUIVALENT of the actions we've consistently seen from NEO-NAZI hate groups...

If those on the right desire to say that Antifa or Black Lives Matter are the exact same thing, just on opposite sides, there's absolutely no way productive way to go forward for this country without a completely new administration (Trump and Pence both gone) in 2020.

If those on the right desire to say that Antifa and BLM are the moral equivalent of Neo Nazi hate groups, then there is no hope for this country period. We might as well blow it up and start over. We'll be fighting WWII all over again but within our own borders. This is where I was going about social conservatism not being a valid and acceptable POV. The point I was making earlier was that with some things it is not a matter of right vs left, it is a matter of right vs wrong. Can we all agree that there are certain things that are right vs wrong, and not an opinion/personal politics, but literally right and wrong? If you want to attack politics that is one thing. When you attack an entire group of people for things like "these people have a lack of work ethic" or other similar generalized character attacks, that in my mind is hate speech in disguise.

Good god...the partisanship on this board is sickening.

I think everyone in America should be an independent like me. That way you can just assess candidates on their own merit. For instance I am a former Republican conservative, yet in the pack of bad choices, I became a huge Bernie guy. I despised Hillary; saw Trump as a total rich chump and really didn't like anybody else except Biden, who wasn't running and McCain and Kasisch.

Cmon folks, both major parties are crooked; both are awful. Become an independent and assess all presidential candidates in the future on their own merits, not party.

I'd love to be able to feel like i have a choice. If the Alt right had not hijacked the GOP, then maybe I'd feel like I have a choice. There are plenty of things I disagree with the democratic establishment about. There is no economic leftist party in America. These people need a voice. I cannot stress enough how economic empowerment solves a lot of societal ills
