He's a typical Leftist/Marxist Progressive. Only hears and sees what he wants to. It's the only way they can function, as they can't logically defend Progressive ideology and it's predictable results wherever and whenever their ideology has set policy, regulation, and law.

They're like the once-Jedi-Knights like Darth Vader in the Star Wars universe that have allowed the hate and fear to fill them, and gone over to the "Dark Side" of the "Force". It blinds them and destroys their ability to think critically. It all comes spilling forth from a core of fear, hatred, greed, envy, and lust for power to control how others live.

They cannot be reasoned with, they are never intellectually-honest in their arguments, and will never acknowledge any fault with their ideology, even when the disastrous evidence, like the conditions in Detroit after ~40 years of iron-fisted Progressive Democrat control. There are packs of wild dogs and bears wandering the streets in large portions of Detroit. I know. I live an hour and a half away, and was there 3 months ago. I've watched it happen.

They are always going on about "well, if you want less government/taxes, go to Somalia!". We only need to go to Detroit to experience Somalia-like conditions, including large portions of the city where police will not respond.

You want to see just what the US will look like in 10-20 years, maybe sooner, if the Progressives get their way? Just visit Detroit. Better bring your own means of protection, however, as police won't respond in many areas to protect you. Maybe if you called the DNR, as they probably have experience dealing with bears and pack-hunting animals. Too bad if it's a two-legged predator though. Unless you had an "EEE-BILLL" semi-automatic rifle.

And every time the cops pull over a drunk gun gnutter- and let's be frank, most gun gnutters a drunks- when the find an unregistered gun in the car, they can haul the gnutter off to jail and throw the weapon into the smelter and run over to the gnutter's house and take everything down to the box of rubber bands and paper clips.
99% of the people are responsible. A higher rate that are conservatives even more. But for someone who accuses others of being NAZI's, you make a pretty damn good NAZI yourself.

See my post #689, above.

That's what you're dealing with.

It's like trying to argue with a stuck record.

The only thing one can do is defeat those such as he that do not believe in the principles and ideas on which the US was founded. They have gone over to the "Dark Side" and cannot/will not hear reason. They know only hatred, fear, greed, envy, and lust for power to control others. They see/hear/think only that which reinforces their spiritual wasteland.

I asserted that it was required to register machine guns in the US.
It seems to me if I can prove this, you should agree to stop posting.
I would meet the proof need and if you could prove that I am wrong, I would stop posting here.
Okay, Sweetie?
{Between me and you, we both know you don't have the balls and even if you met the challenge, you renege.}
It is a law to register just like the law against drugs. Both fail. We will miss you, NOT.

There is nothing that can be done. No amount of warnings of the past history of humanity can deter their view of the movement that is of belief of utopia. The sad thing is that when these agendas started, they were needed for "equality" for our flaws. Now they control everything and blame the demise of America on the people who who nothing against them and have lost much of their wealth to prove their insane issues. Anyway, the massive amount of men and women who are quiet are purchasing their weapons in a purely defensive manner and getting ready for these screwballs when the inevitable collapse or massive decline appears.

the fact that Christie was civil with Obama does not turn him into a liberal. The governor is still a conservative. the question is who could possibly unite the country.
By definition it is either a GOP who doesn't offend dems or vice verse.
if Christie is dead with the GOP then the reason the country is split is the GOP behaving like 15 year olds. refusing to play nice even when it is in nations best interest

So the GOP doing their job and representing those that elected them is not playing fair? Do I need to remind you of democrats during Bush? The difference is the GOP is standing up for the constitution and democrats want to burn it. Of course Bush never bowed before a foreign ruler. Raising debt, raising inflation, raising the unemployed, violating his oath to defend the Constitution is in the countries best interest? WOW you are an idiot. I bet used car dealers love you.

Go on TV and say you're going to kill the President and see if there are no consequences.
