Honestly, why is mortal discourse “toxic?” Is the underlying cause a diligent, disloyal effort to “fundamentally change” America, or implement an “indescribable transition,” based on deceit, dishonesty, and arrogance? What is more dreadful in a human being than disloyalty?

I find that most people are afraid of political and religious discussion. I can find people of like mind to talk with but there is very little intellectual stimulation there. Then I find those that are almost cultist in their believes and will either close the conversation and not talk to you or try to shout you down (like a 6 year old not getting it’s way). There are a very few of opposing views with whom I can have a discussion from which we both come away learning something though maybe with some ego wounded for either of us but friendships still intact and strong. These I will always believe to be courageous and true friends. These are the people worth searching for…

These polls are one of the reasons I will stick with AMAC over aarp for the rest of my time on this earth. I fear for this country and know that someday there will be Divine accounting for the mess that we ourselves have made by turning evil into license in the name of freedom. To God be the Glory.

All Civilizations have followed the following process: Let’s look at each of the eight stages. The names of the stages are from Tyler’s book and are presented in bold red text. My brief reflections follow in plain text. 1st.   From bondage to spiritual growth, 2nd. From spiritual growth to great courage 3rd.  From courage to liberty 4th. From liberty to abundance 5th. From abundance to complacency 6th. From complacency to apathy 7th. From apathy to dependence 8th. From dependence back to bondage : To conclude, As dependence increases, so does centralized power. Dependent people tend to become increasingly dysfunctional and desperate. Seeking a savior, they look to strong central leadership. But centralized power corrupts, and tends to usher in increasing intrusion by centralized power. Injustice and intrusion multiplies. But those in bondage know of no other solutions. Family and personal virtue (essential ingredients for any civilization) are now effectively replaced by an increasingly dark and despotic centralized control, hungry for more and more power. In this way, the civilization is gradually ended, because people in bondage no longer have the virtues necessary to fight. Man-kind has almost never been able to be governed/directed by other men no matter how good or bad they are. Therefore, The SUPREME BEING/CREATOR of MANKIND recognized this and had to sacrifice HIS SON who we all know as JESUS CHRIST to give forgiveness for following the deception of Satan, the DESTROYER of Gods Creation of which he, Satan was SOO jealous of. Anyways, there you have it. The Inevitable progression of all Civilizations. The ONLY WAY that the United States Of America will survive is for all people to forgive one another and quit being controlled by the MASTERS OF POLITICS. The word “POLI TIC” COULD BE DERIVED FROM POLI- MEANING MANY, AND TIC- MEANING BLOOD SUCKING…Most Politicians are “Politicians” there are very few Patriots. Donald Trump was a PATRIOT weather you like it or not. He was already a BILLIONAIR and didn’t need all the POLITICAL HASSEL he was forced to go thru by the LYING DEMOCRATS, AND THAT IS FACT!! It has been said by many psychologically minded scholars, that EXTREME LIBERALISM/DEMOCRAT minds have a “MENTAL DISORDER” That is to say that they cannot see anything but there own reasoning and that is completely portrayed at this time by those on the Far Left and you all know who they are Sincerely Ish Thelod.

Jesus did not come to unite but to divide. In the end there will be sheep and there will be goats. The process, I believe, has begun. There’s still time to get on the right side, but I doubt there will be many AMAC subscribers who are not already there.

I talked with a friend about the political climate. She is an Independent. She said that Trump is vile and if he runs again in 2024, she will absolutely vote Democrat and socialism.
I think that Trump will have a much more difficult time in 2024 to win the votes needed based on his inability to speak in a respectful, professional manner. I think that his approach to “big government” was correct, however, he needs some tweaking in the diplomacy department.

By the time this administration of terror is done, I have a strong suspicion that Donald J. Trump’s “manners” might even be looked past by the most short-sighted, small people who were incapable of understanding how great our lives were under a president who loves this country and her people. People with tunnel vision who cannot see how tirelessly he worked to turn this country back to her former splendor are beyond arrogant…and beyond SMALL.The same people who would tell you that they would take a surgeon with bad bedside manner who was a magnificent surgeon over the bad surgeon who is charming…can’t apparently see the parallel here. Dwelling on manners over substance is dangerous to the future of our democacy.

Very well-stated Janis. Who loves our country and values life has sincere interest in coy, cozy, callous “sweet” people masquerading as “leaders?”

The far-left people in our family are college-aged people. If we even mention one word that might lead to a discussion, they jump up with with an eye-roll and stomp out of the room. They cannot debate or even say why they hate Conservative views because they are only siding with their peers. My sister who only votes Democrat because our parents did (she is 83 now)still votes that way. Even even though in her actions and thoughts she actually agrees with many conservative ideas she will never vote for a GOP’er. She just hates Republicans for no good reason. Weird.

None of this is Political people. It is Marxist/ Communist Trying to change the USA. You better wake up. Political discourse is right out of the Marxist Hand book. Pitting one or more groups against another.

It appears to me that, unlike what our vastly discredited news media, all of the liberals I know deliberatly block out the truth that they disagree with and instead of friendly discussion resort to yelling and insulting when faced with the facts of issues they support that they know are wrong, unethical or transgress God’s law or Institutional law. And, have no problem defending impossible positions because they believe their position is somehow correct.

The Dems I know would vote Dem even the candidate openly stated that he/she slept with dead boys and wanted to have an abortion clinic in every little village. Even those who consider themselves Christian.

I know several people who voted for Biden only because they didn’t like Trump. It had nothing to do with the ideals of the party.

A very close friend who has been a democrat all his life (he is 80 Yrs old), voted for Biden because he hates President Trump immensely. Also my friend said, “why is it that the majority of news stations (CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, plus all of the fake media ) all say the same thing about Trump but not Fox News”. He also voted for Biden only because Biden is a democrat! People are brain-washed by the news media. All of my family members who are democrat hates Trump and will support any democrat. I live in California! ☹️

Oh yes, they’ll “face the music.” How can anyone who disdains life, America, and virtuous institutions feel joy; or escape dire retribution for their mad, mean, murderous misdeeds?

To leftists, leftist politics is their RELIGION. Until they wake up – or grow up – and see REALITY, they are hopeless members of the collective hive.

Brainwashed people are extremely hard to deal with. Voting Republican is such an obvious great choice.

Sadly our adult children have already been indoctrinated in college and don’t see the future coming. Very sad we can’t talk about even the economy because they are such Biden lovers. Very concerned parents.

I have 4 grown, college-educated sons. All raised in christian, conservative home and church. 2 are staunch Trump supporters, one a Trump hater/Biden supporter and one totally off the rails ???? I AM greatly concerned for my 4 grandchildren. Their apathy about the future of our country is terrifying.!

My tolerance and respect for the lefts views has turned to pure hatred for the left leaning lunatics. I despise them in every sense of the word. Their hypocrisy and stupidity has no end and they seek to destroy everything THEY consider wrong and everyone who does not agree with them. There is NO reasoning with them because they are all insane!!!!
