When you say right thinking do You mean as opposed to wrong thinking?
Yes - I know Phoenix we disagree about what's right and what's wrong in this regard :)
Actually we'd even disagree about what's right and what's left! In the UK I'm a right of centre Conservative supporter. In America I'd be regarded as liberal :)
You have a good answer other than that detail. You are very amicable. I will make yours Best Answer with that tiny reservation.
Thank you very much Phoenix! As I say, I know from previous forums / Q & As, that we differed politically on the election, so that's especially appreciated. Cheers and best wishes. Alun
Thanks for your contribution Mr Greensleeves.
Cool to hear from you Greensleeves. Phoenix you picked the right one. I don't agree with the attack but I get it and it has merit. Obedience of the law is the greatest freedom. Let us keep our officials obedient.
Thanks Eric. Perhaps I could have toned down the attack, but I do really dislike most of what Mr Trump stands for. However, he has been democratically elected, and that must be respected. And as such I denounce any violent or illegal forms of protest
Greensleeves, I agree with Phoenix's 2nd reply and think you should consider what https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Understan... has to say.
I like this. In polite discourse we narrow the divide.I definitely respect you folks.
True but they shouldn't be an impediment to the country and the people by vowing to disrupt the Trump presidency. imo, it is a flagrant disregard of the oath they took when they got into office.
BOC, They took an oath to protect the constitution but they aren't doing it because parties are unconstitutional. The Constitution doesn't require anyone except those taking part in the ceremony to be present, attending it is only a tradition.
In a democratic country the person with the most votes wins. The US is not a democratic country.
Interesting notion Peter. One time I really looked that up from Socrates to Alan Dershowitz and I just could not find any rule that says you are right on that most votes concept. But it does seem we are a Republic.
What June is saying is that we have a democratic process by which we elect our leaders; she's not suggesting that we're a democracy.
I agree, people seem to forget, or don't know the difference between a pure Democracy and a Democratic Republic.
True but what about all of the people they are being paid to represent? They are now elected public officials and they have a duty to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities. This ceremony is part of that job.
The people they SUPPOSE to represent aren't represented, they represent Corporate interest, not people, so there people they supposed to represent are not getting representation so should they why care? The laws passed are for corporations.
It is not their right to burn cars, throw bricks at people, threaten lives.
Tamara, if anyone thinks for a moment that criminal acts against people of property is a right and linked to actual politics they are delusional. Actually from a logistics point of view it is a perfect cover for criminals to violate the law.
I agree, Eric, they are "False Flag" covers for political actions.
Did you really think our collective "we" would just shut up? Maybe you might want to cut back on TV. Then you do not hear them talking.
https://hubpages.com/politics/HOW-TO-GOVERN-CONSTI... suggests parties are unconstitutional and the DOJ docket # 3758011 is suggesting something might be done about parties and unconstitutional elections period.
Mike -- you are right about what it is all about. But don't we have to recognize that their "boycott" is a very peaceful objection. I kind of think of it like they are putting their picture up on the wall in the Post Office. Now we know for sure.
But that boycott encourages other people to have riotous protests.
Dang Mike, you may be right about some sort of enabling empowerment influence. But I think those nasty violent idiots are just criminals with a stage. A reason to rob a liquor store or get a selfie beating someone up. Let's see about women's marches.
Were the video segments showing masked men and women throwing bricks, breaking windows, and setting a car on fire outside the Washington Post real events, or was it fake news?
