    Would You Eradicate All Persons Who Don't Subscribe To Your Political Philosophy?

    The title says it pretty much.

    I think that there is enough political hatred among many of our great citizens of the U.S. who would, if they could, without consequences, be willing to remove, from our planet, all persons who oppose their respective political ideologies, philosophies, or party affiliation.

    I think that many believe that reducing our country's political ideologies down to his or her own...would totally eliminate all of our political problems.

    What say ye?

    of course not. none of us is ever 100% correct, both sides have good ideas.

    I can see where there is such sentiment at the extremes of whatever ideology, but then there always was. However, for the majority, I think that they just want society to work reasonably well and have opportunity, enough to eat, and peace in their lives.

    I'm pretty confident that I'm right (most of the time), but I also don't have every available option rolling around in my head. A differing viewpoint is essential.

    There, there, I'm sure you will find other free-market Communists out there.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    hellz to the no!

    Diversity of beliefs, viewpoints, and worldviews are essential to a healthy and democratic society, even if I personally find some of those views to be repulsive.

    In contrast, there are many who DO subscribe to my own political philosophy who I DO think should be eradicated for being morons and for giving liberals a bad name (i.e. Code Pink Crazy Commies)

    I wouldn't to eradicate them. I would, however, like to decrease them. Healthy conversation is necessary and I agree with parts of probably every philosophy that "opposes" mine so eliminating them wouldn't be desirable. However, I don't want them to have a good chance of getting power since I think as wholes, they hurt the country.

    (btw, i'm talking about the US not the world - the rest of the world can do whatever works for them)
