Really crash aka cranston? You really posted that? You, who hates all Republicans and attacks everything they post, just like Jank/Dr. John? You couldn't even be nice to GB, and he never does anything to anyone, and you made him say he was going to block you. You have to be pretty bad for GB to block you, but then again you are. You try everything to goad people into fighting so you and your pals can run and report. Blocked is where you belong.
I attempt to remain impartial as possible knowing that we are all influenced by our own personal biases and beliefs. I believe that we can learn or benefit from our disagreements as much as we can from agreements or those we disagree with as much as those we agree with. I also like to approach any conflict or competitor (of opinions) from a standpoint of considering that the other person has valid points based on their own perspectives and biases but that we can hopefully converge on some agreement even if that is agreeing to disagree but in everything keep it respective and rational. The reason I feel we can often learn (increase our own understanding/experience) from those we disagree with, is that others have different experiences and history than that I have had so additional exposures than I have had and it's more a case of attempting to put on another's shoes, so to say.
In the case of my banning L. Cranston, which I did do, I did so because it quickly became fruitless and an impossible impasse because I was constantly being miscategorized and it was apparent that a civil dialog couldn't be maintained because there was no way I could be considered anything but an adversary (pigeonholed as being a Republican, rather than an independent) and so it was like beating my head against a concrete wall over and over and over again, regardless of my statements indicating my willingness to consider other sides. I can always unblock at any time also and I do still at times click to see a response made but find it easier not to until potentially there is some hope of civil discourse, and I hope at some point there will be.
I can understand why they might think I am Republican due to my post but there also is no attempt at understanding why my post might lean that way. I admit to being a Christian conservative, for the most part, and because of the recent leanings and direction of the Democrat politicians and the recent positions of many Republican politicians then I have favored the Republican positions and side. I have voted for some Democrats before, unfortunately, some that gave me moral indigestion for doing so.
I do believe it's important for us to choose politicians and representatives to represent the things important to us but not to establish a theocracy or a dictatorship. Freedom is something to cherish and that means that sometimes things go other than what you would like and you accept it for the better of the nation. This is the case with the position of the President. The President is the President for all people even those who voted against him/her but got the voted in due to their ultimate platform and positions.
I did not and still don't, respect Obama even though (sadly) I voted for him the first time around but I did respect the position of President so supported him until his term ended. I quickly became disenchanted with Obama over his apologetic approach to other nations as if American did something wrong or was inherently bad. Democrats pushing through the ACA (unAffordable Healthcare Act) totally ruining Healthcare insurance and greatly increasing the family cost for healthcare cemented my disenchantment with Democrats.
Sadly though it seems the great majority of people that voted against Donald Trump, though, cannot respect the position of president but will not accept Trump as president. Also, the Democrats have given me no incentive to return to voting for them by their stance on late-term and after term abortions as well as an unrealistic approach to climate change. I don't buy into the "MAN MADE" climate change doctrine that they are preaching. I'm not denying climate changes because it has and always will but I don't believe in punishing man or specifically the United States blaming us for making up woes that are exacerbated to the point of absurdity with a chicken little approach.
