    Re: Have the extremes fully taken over?

    The extremes took over the Republican party during the Obama administration. Obama was the biggest recruitment tool for the alt-right and movements that were racist but attempted to display patriotism (Tea Party). I loved Obama, but electing a black president got the racists out of the closet....

And the politically correct crowd on the left, well they're just not powerful enough to do anything. In Seattle I'm a fascist. And Texas I'm a bleeding heart liberal. Really all I am is a moderate.

    But there is no mind control in the media. Fox News is the worst one. They don't claim to be news, they claim to be entertainment shows. There's nothing wrong with the media but there is something wrong with the people that read it. I'm sorry dear but this site is about 75 to 80% neocon. And the few Democrats that are on the site are too wussy to put up a fight. They might just have to learn the hard way.

    that's a real gut buster=the anti Trump sentiment dominates this board over the last 18 months. BTW how do you define "neocon""

    what policies of Obama appeal to an alleged leftwing libertarian perspective?

    The right reached out for the hate vote, they didn'y know how low these people could be. What they drew from was a very large group of Americans that through conscience and norms, our society has been able to keep under their slime rocks, away from the good people in this country. As soon as scum bag started talking these low lives found their voice in him and came out into public and were proud of voicing their hatred verbally, seeing it as a opportunity to run this country with there hate, the way they think it should be run. Its time to put these people back were they belong, back under their rocks.

    Obama care. I'm socially libertarian. I'm also semi-libertarian in terms of economic policies. I believe businesses should have some freedom to do work, but regulations are necessary as capitalism is inherently driven by greed, and greed drives corruption.

    I believe in universal health care, and Obamacare is the first step towards that goal. You may say "You're not libertarian if you believe in universal health care" well I'm not fully libertarian.

    Plus, Obama was a very intellectual person. He was a true thinker. Had the Tea Party not come along, he would have had more of an opportunity to try out some of his policies. Instead, he was only able to get the stimulus and Obamacare done.

    I agree 100%. Most of the Trump voting scum are people who, quite frankly, aren't capable of contributing to society. I hate to say this, but places in PA, MI, OH, and Wisconsin are just never going to be economically viable. Those people need to move to places that are and try their hand in the game they call life. Instead of coming out of the woodwork to vote for this scum of a president we have.

    They need to go back under their rocks, and stay there.

    well I find government health care and libertarian views as diametrically opposed but you have the right to call your views whatever you want. I don't know if Obama is quite as intellectual as perhaps you believe but he did do a good job of advancing a facade of intellectualism. he certainly cared more about people seeing him as an intellectual than W or Trump did

    LOL and then you shift gears with this nonsense. Ohio and PA and Michigan aren't "economically viable"? You don't list where you live but that sounds like coastal arrogance and nonsense.

    He was a constitutional law professor at one of the best schools in the nation. He's got more IQ in his pinky than W and Trump ever had.
