    Default Are you???

    Are you a Taylor Green Trumpper or a Cheney Republican?


    There is a true split among the Republicans, there are the classical conservatives, and now we have the populists who are happy to abandon conservatism if its supported by a certian anti-intellectualist group.

    This happened in China with the "cultural revolution" where the government intentionally rolled back the gains we attained from the age of enlightenment. They sent college professors and writers to the country to work on farms and prohibited them from reading or publishing, in an attempt to limit liberal education for the masses, instead turning to conservative indoctrination.

    If you do not see this clear choice America is facing you are blinded by anger.

    Why would you oppose establishing a Christian caliphate here in America?
    A Cross on every Mountain, a Prayer in every School, the Ten Commandments in every Courthouse.
    The Christian Republic of America.

    There is a lot of anger-blindness and it is not limited to the right.

    What China has done is scary. They have this new 'game' they play with people's heads. A 'good citizen' game. You get points for saying good things about China, and associating with other people who score well. You score well according to the friends you keep. It's all tallied up on your cell phone. Everybody is connected to the main score-keeping computer. It tracks you. If you associate with 'the wrong people' you lose points. You want points. You get advancement in jobs and other perks for having lots of points.

    If you break rules, such as jaywalking, you lose points. You have to be a good obedient citizen to score well.

    Sort of an insidious way to force patriotism into people's minds.

    We will probably get the same thing here in the USA, sadly.

    We are turning into the Borg.
    Personal Ignore Policy PIP: I like civil discourse. I will give you all the respect in the world if you respect me. Mouth off to me, or express overt racism, you will be PERMANENTLY Ignore Listed. Zero tolerance. No exceptions. I'll never read a word you write, even if quoted by another, nor respond to you, nor participate in your threads. ... Ignore the shallow. Cherish the thoughtful. Long Live Civil Discourse, Mutual Respect, and Good Debate! ps: Feel free to adopt my PIP. It works well.

    There is a true split among Democrats, too.

    I couldn't care less about China. If all their power grids exploded? Tuff shit.
    As to your silly rant about "conservative indoctrination," you are oblivious.

    He who live in glasshouse should not throw stones. Your party is a glass house,
    and you and the media have been throwing stones for over the last 4 years...
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    If the idea of a social credit score scares you, I suggest you go take an introspective dive into your own post history.

    They only want that because they believe it would give them the moral authority for more power.
