    Which is entirely relevant to the article, and most certainly adds to the discussion, whether or not it's something you'd personally prefer not to draw attention to.
    Actually I see your post as a problem. Somehow you see the people who are worried about Russian interference as the problem and not the Russians themselves. A lot of that is due to people including trump worried that he is not seen as a legitimate president, HE IS. You use the constant tirade about people calling people Russian assests as a way to deflect from the real issue. I have not seen many posts on this board calling anyone a Russian assest. And if you can not see the danger of Russian interference in our elections and are so interested in using your message to protect Trump, then you are the problem.

    And that would be your problem, not mine.

    That is not what I said, but a lot of you are seeing exactly what you want to in this thread.

    A lot of that is due to people including trump worried that he is not seen as a legitimate president, HE IS.
    There are many, many, many people who don't "see" him as a legitimate president.

    Donald Trump is an illegitimate president — and here is why – Raw Story

    Jimmy Carter: Donald Trump Is An Illegitimate President, Put In To Office By The Russians | Video | RealClearPolitics!

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...f07_story.html

    Hillary Clinton Says Donald Trump Is an Illegitimate President and Tulsi Gabbard Is a Russian Tool – Reason.com

    What Happens When a President Is Declared Illegitimate? - The Atlantic

    Those links could go on for days.

    You use the constant tirade about people calling people Russian assests as a way to deflect from the real issue.
    No, I use them as a fuller illustration of the point of the OP, but I am entirely unsurprised to find people not wanting to hear it.

    I have not seen many posts on this board calling anyone a Russian assest.
    Then you have some pretty big blinders.

    And if you can not see the danger of Russian interference in our elections
    Nothing I said indicates that I don't. The opposite, in fact, is true, if you actually understood what I said.

    and are so interested in using your message to protect Trump, then you are the problem.
    Nothing I said "protects Trump" in the slightest.

    I just said things you really, really don't want to hear.
    The only reason to be anti-libertarian is there are people you want to control that you wouldn't be able to.

    The onus is on you to support your claim.

    Just repeating it with slightly different verbiage does not lend any credibility to your assertion.

    This stuff fascinates me. Its why I came to this site in the first place.

    If you've got some dry scholarly treatise to support your position, put it up. I will read it. I read a couple this morning researching earlier replies in this thread.
    Indeed. Meaningless.

    Yes.

    Nope.

    Meaningless.

    Fine. You seem to have learned little & are actively resisting knowledge - that's due to your bias.

    Treatise: Bias is all. You likely read material which affirms/does not seriously challenge your bias.

    Some of the questions you bring up are valid. In addition to this article I have also read these 2 books:

    Likewar: The Weaponization of Social Media. This goes into much more detail, and does not focus just on Russia. i highly recommend this book, as it was very eye opening and alarming.

    Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe This does not focus on Russia, but it is part of the story. The power Zuck has, is simply too much. another good read (or listen)

    It happens constantly.

    The entire ridiculous propaganda narrative is Democrats denying reality and screaming "Russian!!!!" at anyone who challenges their insane conspiracy theories.

    We are all CT fans. All that separates us is whether we prefer Official Conspiracy Theories or those not approved by TPTB.
