The health insurance thing infuriated me. If someone without insurance gets really sick, he goes to the emergency to get care. And then the tax payer has to pay for it. We should all feed the system. Itís called living in a society

Move to your own island, price. Have fun

The Republicans and Democrats acceptance of Black people is more nuanced than "Republicans loved Black people until the New Deal and then the Democrats did."

During the years leading up to the civil war, there were many Republicans who opposed the spread of slavery because they didn't want black people coming and living North. So their intolerance of slavery was actually and intolerance of slaves or Blacks.

And conversely there were many slave owners who took very good care of their slaves, and even granted them freedom after certain milestones. Many were considered part of the family.

So the narrative of North liking black people and south not is not reflective of the reality.

After the New Deal, it wasn't all cut and dry, either. Many southern Democrats continued fight for segregation culminating in break-off presidential runs by the likes of the late Strom Thurmond, and the "Dixiecrats." Ironic considering Strom was for segregation and after Strom's death it was discovered very early in his life he had a child out of wedlock with a black woman.

Anyway, the point is it's not a cut-and-dry thing. Politics is regional and a Republican from the Northeast is going to look a lot different than one from Texas.

I will say that I think a lot of Black people are more conservative than they want to admit.

Everything is always more nuanced than politics leads you to believe. The very design of parties and politics is propaganda and division. No one really will win an election being nuanced. Thatís why staunch republicans and staunch democrats are both stupid and should not be listened to, ever.

This take is the epitome of "nuanced."

They shouldnít be listened to. When did I contradict that statement. There is no nuance to extremism. In fact that is the entire reason itís considered extreme.

The nuance I am referring to is all the space in between the two extremes, hence why only moderates and non affiliated party people should be the only ones listened to. My politics are all over the place. Thatís how I know I am much smarter than you.

Also I support people who attack cops and wave guns around in parks being shot. Thatís reason number 2.

You said "staunch Republicans and Democrats" should not be listened to "ever."

You don't see anything extremist about this statement?

Not my fault you're too stupid to comprehend any message not delivered in graphic form.

But hey - at least I provide a way for you to participate in the discussion.

You're welcome!
