    Yes and no.
    If majority always ruled then there would be no room for discrimination.
    The problem with the Democrat party as I see it, they are dictatorial.
    They want to make the laws that restrict peoples rights from living their lives without big brother holding their hand.
    Democrats have controlled a majority of major cities.
    Why don't they fix them? Why is the crime rate so high? Why is there so much poverty, when the power of the laws is in their hands to change it?
    They don't want to. They like to control people. They like to tell you that you can go to the store or keep your job, eat at a restaurant, go to church, whether you can buy veggie seeds at home depot during a plandemic.
    They want to control not your body... but your mind.
    And I'm sorry, I already gave mine to the Lord.
    They cannot cause me fear by calling me a domestic terrorist because I don't agree with their policies,
    or a nazi, or a white supremist, or even a deplorable.
    The Democrat party is rude, crude, and obnoxious.
    And no doubt you see the Republican party in the exact same light, word for word.

    I'm amazed , truly amazed how there is black and white and both sides see the opposite side as evil.
    There is no grey area anymore.
    I don't know if there is even a solution.
    It's sad really.
    I think we're all being messed with. And they are screwing with our emotions and our minds, pitting us against each other with topics they know will evoke a reaction.
    Why oh WHY we play the game, I will never truly understand.
    Perhaps it is the drama that people enjoy, the gossip, the backbiting, the hypocricy.
    Because of course, poiting fingers at others faults takes the focus off our own.
    We're all guilty.

    That's why I pray. Because only God can fix this.
    Hugs

    I already did…… I mean come on dude this is not a matter of opinion. It’s just facts. Look at the national percentage of republicans vs democrats over the last 50 years for USA…… democrats are not 11 points ahead of republicans and the independents are growing more liberal.

    The democrats are not trying to control anything. Unless, are you referring to the pandemic where 40% of the population completely ignored scientists and medical experts as over a million Americans died in under 3 years? Sure. They did force America to listen to experts as best as they could. Outside of a global pandemic….. the democrats consistently push for freedoms among adults.

    There is a reason why you’re seeing alt right members in this very group wanting to ban same sex marriages.

    Some say that the Republicans are the "silent" majority. Because we're not as loud as the democrats.
    Have you seen Biden's ratings lately?
    Not many Dems approve of his performance.
    The questions is: Does Biden represent the majority of democrats that voted for him.
    If he doesn't, then they need to find a different representative.

    There are a couple Democrats I would vote for, but these you would oppose. You would call them DINO'S like we call Republicans RINOS.
    I like Manchin. I listen to his debates and arguments and he seems fair and rational.
    I'm not into extremes on either side.
    But if your going to vote as a democrat then you should register as a democrat and vice versa.

    My Senator is Susan Collins. She's a Republican RINO.
    I like my Governor Mills. She's a Democrat. during Covid she was fair. She put in the protection measures, masks, distancing, even had a restriction for awhile who could come into the state depending on testing results.
    But she didn't lock us down. She didn't remove our rights to assemble even though the amount of people attending was reduced and spaced.
    She didn't go radical like some governors did.
    I've only lived in Maine for about 6 years. None of the policies have had any personal effect on me.
    I'm probably the exception out of the people in the state.
    Not too many complained. No violent protests have taken place. The state is rather quiet and smooth from how I see it.
    The northern part of the state is predominantly Republican and the southern and coastal areas predominantly democrat.
    And yet we manage to get along without burning each others houses and businesses down.

    I believe the majority is the republican party, it's just we been quiet for a long time.
    We're too busy working trying to raise families and put food on the table, to be out prancing in the streets in our underwear or even naked.
    You have to admit, it is getting a bit radical on the left.. no?
    I don't think grown men shaking their junk in front of little kids is a good thing.
    But that's just me.
    It's about R E S P E C T
    and I think we all need to take a learning course and refresh our memories.
    hugs

    I'm what you would call a PUREBLOOD.
    I'm also a "dudette" not a dude, but that's ok I don't mind lol
    You know why 40% of the population told the medical experts and scientists to go fly a kite?
    Because we know they have an agenda. And the agenda is not in our best interest.
    Now I could argue the science and the data until I am blue in the face and would leave 0 impression on you because your mind is immoveable, like a granite stone.
    It comes down to this:
    The government has no right to inject anyone with experimental drugs of any sort.
    I believe it's called the Nuremburg Code or something like that.
    The Nazis did that in Germany. They used people as guinea pigs for their experiments.
    Covid 19 was manmade. The "vaccine" is manmade.
    Your not jabbing me with anything manmade to frieghten, or cause fear, to fill your own pockets.

    Millions of people die every year. Hate to break it to you, but we don't have eternal life here on earth.
    At some point we all must die.
    And the larger the population the larger amount of deaths. That's science and it's logical, and it's fact.
    Somehow Covid 19 cured the flu, because on average thousands and thousand of people die from the flu each year.
    It also caused Cancer and Diabetes and even motorcycle accidents.
    Because somehow everyone who died had covid.
    Coincidence?
    No.. it was to push the fear so people would submit themselves to whatever devious inventions they wanted to experiment on us with.

    You may call me a conspiracy theorist, and I would probably agree with you, except for the fact that it has happened before and it will happen again.
    You think "monkey pox" rolling out right before mid terms is coincidence?

    You may think I drink the kool aid, but least I'm not bowing down to the machine that thinks itself is God.
    I haven't been tested, I haven't been jabbed, I haven't gotten sick and it's been over 2 years.
    I haven't had the flu either.. so maybe coof was good for something.
    I know the NIH and WHO and Pfizer and Moderna all made some pretty good profits.
    And now, you see, they need more funding for this new variant B5?
    They want to jab kids under 5 even though they are not at risk.
    Something wicked in that concoction.. and they're not experiementing on me.

    Some people are straight, some people are not. Get over it, guys 'n' gals. And, as Jesus commanded us, love your neighbour, and love your enemy.

    Well you are right you want be able to change my mind. It’s hard for me to look at the same 40% that rejects how fast the speed of light is, how many light years a star is, those who reject evolution, and reject the age of the earth and reject thing after things, are the same ones saying don’t take a vaccine when almost 100% of scientists and virologist say yeah take them and it’s only been a fringe group of people who’ve rejected the vaccines leading up this one.

    Dude now day, within this context , is mostly used gender neutral. It’s like if a guy was walking and just got pranked by 3 girls and and he says , “ come on guys y’all are crazy “ . I was raised republican. I was republican most of life. I was republican while I was in the army. I stopped being republican shortly after getting out. Well within a year or two. All the reasons just kept stacking up.
    However, like imagine you are, the discussion has bleed in beyond serving any purpose. We share different views that are incompatible and there is no eye to eye. I’m sure plenty of things out there we see eye to eye. Maybe. Maybe not. But either way this is not one them. It’s getting to the point I’m skimming comments. That’s my cue I’m beyond caring to carry on with this thread some I’m unfollowing and want bother to read any other comments here in this thread.

    Would you care to share the reasons that changed your party identity?
    If not, that's fine.
    You may be surprised to know that I have a lot of views that are not "main stream" biblical beliefs.
    I have no problem with evolution. The Bible says God created man from the dust of the earth.
    Well, we had to evolve from dust didn't we?
    I just don't believe we evolved from animals. There is no scientific proof that such a thing ever happened.
    That is why it's called the "theory" of evolution. There are a whole lot of theories in the world, don't make them fact.
    I have a feeling the earth is as old as time itself.
    How old is time?
    I believe we could find a lot of common ground. Life is full of things that have no business in politics.

    And let me just say this:
    Thank You for your service

    Remember what God told the jews right before they were cast out . He said YE do more evil than even the nations .
    WHEN so called western nations who claim God do worse and support more evil than even the ice cold nations
    You can surely expect judgement is at the door . China and russia do evil , but they do it in an ice cold state .
    America and the west do great evils and yet try and do it in the name of GOD while doing it . JUDGMENT is at the door .

    For i will raise against you a bitter nation , a nation whose langauge thou speakest not .
    I seem to notice both russia and china have well surpassed the US with hypersonic missile .
    They build up their kingdoms while america and the west focus on trying to congratulate a boy who thinks he is a girl .
    While china and russia build up , america is busy painting rainbows . And worse western churches are going in the same direction .
    I highly suspect JUDGEMNT is on the way .

    Funny, this. I take a far more sanguine view of the state of the west than you guys seem to. Of course, not everything is perfect, but we would be foolish to expect that. But we are free, in our liberal democracies, and to my way of thinking, that counts for a whole lot. And I resent the conservative tendency of the SCOTUS, to try to reduce that precious freedom.

    Best wishes, 2RM.

    It will come from within.

    Boston school suggests assassinations are just part of resisting “oppression”

    Posted on July 19, 2022 by Constitutional Nobody

    BOSTON, MA – A school in Boston allegedly has a group of teachers that are utilizing worksheets that note assassinations are merely a form of resisting political oppression.
    The move has some experts claiming that the teachers are indoctrinating their students instead of teaching them facts.

    The information came to light when someone looked at the classroom materials that are available for download online from three of the teachers in the Sheltered English Immersion program.
    The teachers are instructors in Humanities to ninth and tenth-grade students who are specifically new in the country from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, China, and Haiti.
    One part of the curriculum speaks about “notes and assignments around oppression, resistance, and narrative structure.” The Epoch Times notes:
    “The first page of the worksheet identifies three types of oppression as “Institutional [sic],” “Interpersonal [sic], and “Internalized,” and then lists examples of each.
    One example of oppression at the institutional level was identified as “Trump builds a wall on the border so it is harder for Latinos to enter the US.”
    Students in the course were then asked to list different forms of oppression and advise what they felt was the level of resistance for each act of “oppression.”
    In the worksheet that was provided, eleven different types of resistance are shown that are seemingly okay to employ for different types of oppression.
    The students who are taking the class are then supposed to fill out blanks in the column that explains each form of resistance shown, institutional, interpersonal, or internalized. The Epoch Times then noted:

    “Alongside peaceful protest methods such as boycotts, sit-ins, and petitions, the worksheet also contains three images [that] appear to portray violent forms of revolt: riots, shown by masked protestors wearing all black throwing projectiles including what appears to be a flare; fights, depicted by a cartoon image of two people brawling; and political assassinations, shown by an image of President Richard Nixon as a target of crosshairs.”

    While the teachers in this instance clearly believe that there is nothing wrong with the materials they are providing to students, others like Rebecca Friedrichs, the founder of For Kids & Country, and a teacher for 28 years take issue. She said:
    “These English language learners [in the classrooms] are likely new immigrants to the country, coming to this country to experience freedom, [but in this case] they’ve run smack dab into Marxist indoctrinators posing as educators.

    Schools are meant for educating children, not indoctrinating them in radical ideology.”

    Friedrichs went on to accuse the worksheets of containing “lies” that are being used by the teachers to simply indoctrinate them. Alex Newman, the executive director of the advocacy group Public School Exit, agrees with Friedrichs’ opinion. He said:

    “The material was clearly designed to indoctrinate children into seeing themselves as victims of oppression.”
    The part that concerned Newman the most was the underlying theme to remove, violently if necessary, those who the group does not believe are legitimate leaders of the country. He said:
    “Legitimate authorities must be brought down if they want to impose new authorities…[this program is] an extension of that same lawless agenda.”

    Both Friedrichs and Newman believe that the real goal behind the worksheets is to teach children that violence is acceptable when you do not agree with certain leaders.

    The example Newman points out is the picture of former Republican President Richard Nixon in the crosshairs of someone’s rifle scope. Newman said:

    “When children are being encouraged to view assassination as a legitimate form of resistance, we’ve entered into some very, very dangerous territory.”

    Boston school suggests assassinations are just part of resisting “oppression” | BOSTON, MA – A school in Boston allegedly has a group of teachers that are utilizing worksheets that note assassinations are merely a form of resisting political oppression. The move has some experts claiming that the teachers are indoctrinating their students instead of teaching them facts. “When children are being encouraged to view assassination as | The Tea Party's Front Page. | Slowly, our freedoms are being chipped away with, "We know better..." justification as its hammer and chisel.

    Amen!

    There you go @Enoch111 , isn’t that something!

    “Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her. And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them.” (Ezekiel 5:5-6)

    Hi, Amigo! [​IMG]

    To be sure, judgment is on the way, but the arms race is irrelevant. If it only takes 1000 ICBMs to destroy the whole world and the loser of the arms race has 2500, what difference does it make who's in the lead?

    I mean, really, right?

    They are “special” citizens!

    after all there is no Christian month!

    Or redemption month!

    or Christ is king month!

    Only in the church!

    examples :

    June: month of the sacred heart of Jesus!

    July: month of the precious blood of Jesus!

    Last Sunday of the church year in the glorious feast of Jesus Christ the king!
