I posted a video about this in the Other People's Videos section, but I think it is important enough for us to watch. Yes, this is happening in the EU, but it could effect the internet as a whole in a very negative way. I know a lot of us read news sources from overseas. It's something I've always done. My stance on news is to look at news sources from both sides in the USA, and, if possible, look at a few from overseas. Somewhere in all of that is the truth.
This could end up actually shuttering a lot of websites. Even places like Wikipedia aren't safe. Google isn't safe. This is scary, and it could effect everyone, even outside of the EU.
And this is happening very quickly. So give these a watch. If you want a quick run through, go to the second and third videos.
I know most of you guys don't know these candidates, but I wanted to point this one out from the NC Democratic primary, because this is a good sign. Romley ran an absolute massive amount of advertisements here leading up to the primary. I mean, he flooded the heck out of everyone. He was one of the few I actually saw TV ads for.
His entire platform was "Vote for me because I hate Trump." His ads began with and stated that Trump colluding with Russia was pretty much a proven fact. And the only thing he actually told us he was going to do - beside hate on Trump - was to stop Trump. The hatred rushing out of this guy was obvious.
Notice he got his butt handed to him. The guy who won... no TV ads, at least not that I ever saw. Hardly heard a thing about him. Still trounced him.
Regardless of your opinion on Trump, you might want to consider running on more than your hatred for him. Might not be a winning strategy, especially in states that went red in 2016. And the dems who have been winning special elections are faking conservative mindsets. So... maybe do some market research or something. Get out of your echo chamber before you run for office.
Primary election dates:
Get out and vote. Primary out your RINOs on your state's date. Make sure you get out there. Don't assume a "blue wave" and stay home. Don't assume the rest of us can handle the "blue wave" and prevent it without you. Remember, not all of us are registered for a major party. I'll be voting in the primaries with a libertarian ballot. So get out there and get it done, folks.
There are some things you need to know about me.
But I believe they are wrong based on my moral code. Disagreeing with me shouldn't come with the death penalty. Disagreeing with anyone shouldn't come with the death penalty. Making threats in an attempt to change minds is useless and wrong. And if you do have some desire to kill someone because they don't think like you, then you need serious mental help. When I state these things, people on "my side" of the isle normally agree with me.
Then Ted Nugent makes a statement that could be easily construed as "kill them because they don't agree with me."
“Don’t ask why. Just know that evil, dishonesty, and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least,” Nugent said according to conservative media watchdog Media Matters.
Suddenly, I'm wrong for not agreeing with the statement. Suddenly, he's "only talking about coyotes." Well, the statement as a whole can be construed otherwise, and it is, in fact, being read the way I believe it was intended.
"They started it."
"Oh, so now you're outraged about doing away with the other side."
Yes. Yes I am. And you should be, too. I don't care who started it. I haven't cared about, "he started it!" since I was in first grade.
I find it outrageous when the extreme liberals say things like that, and find this outrageous for exactly the same reasons. Disagreeing with someone is not death penalty worthy.
We're quick to talk about civil war and killing whoever for whatever, but why? Why would you be so eager to take a life?
Is there any reason for a civil war? Sure there is! But civil war is not the first thing we should jump to. Civil war - like any form of deadly force - should be an absolute last resort. We're not there yet, I hope we never get there. We may at some point, and that saddens me. I will keep hoping we never get there again. A civil war would be devastating on many levels to our country. It's not the badassery on display you seem to think it is. It would, most likely, destroy the USA.
And I am not going to agree with statements about killing those who disagree with me simply because they have made statements about killing me for disagreeing with them. If someone should act on it, then we have another story all together. Prepare to be met with deadly force. But again, I hope it never gets there. I take no pleasure in the deaths of others. I do not wish death on others. I would like to see our country united, not torn apart by violence. We're pretty far gone right now, but I think we can make it back.
Take the high road. They can wish death on you as much as they want. It doesn't justify returning the thought or threat unless they act on it. Debate. Protest. Fight for your rights where it counts. Stay on the high road. When they wish death on you, counter them with either debate or really blow their mind and tell them you hope they live a long life. We keep saying we want our country to unite and we want all this crazy to stop. We can't stop it if we join it.
I find this interesting. Every so often, I boost posts on the Facebook page. Haven't done it in a month or two, but I tried last night. This is what I got back. Well, there's no profanity in the article because I don't use profanity in my articles. So apparently it was rejected because I was "harassing" the YouTube shooter? Or maybe I wasn't supposed to mention the YouTube shooter is a woman? Or they don't like my reference towards "puppets?" Amazing. Either way, boost was rejected and their explanation for why really doesn't tell me anything.
