Frownland v Chula Vista: the Rematch. This time, it's personal!

Actually, every time it's personal....

Play nice, guys, or you'll wake up Jansz and he'll shut this thread down too. Tread lightly ....

Interesting choice of words. So you admit that in our current political system, candidates "need" to play ball with the rich and powerful, or else they can't accomplish anything, even if they theoretically have the support of the masses?

Donald Trump will never be president. This is simply the way that things work in the real world.

I have 3 questions for you. Stay focused.

Disclaimer: My use of the word different does not infer any of the following - Better than, more mature than, older than, more experienced than, more superior than, more lofty than, more intelligent than,.... you catch my drift. Hopefully.

1. Do you agree that a person who is married and has children might have a different perspective on things (including politics) than a person who is not married and doesn't have kids?

2. Do you agree that a person who owns a home might have a different perspective on things (including politics) than a person who isn't paying a mortgage and property taxes?

3. Do you agree that a person who is inching up on 60 might have a different perspective on things (including politics) than a person in their mid 20s?

To repeat, in case you are not focused:

My use of the word different does not infer any of the following - Better than, more mature than, older than, more experienced than, more superior than, more lofty than, more intelligent than,....

Any two people can have a different perspective on things.

Look up the word infer, dumbass. When you use that as a basis to invalidate our stances, you are IMPLYING superiority.

I'm sorry, Chula. I haven't yet unlocked the [Old Fart] skill tree, so your political genius is indecipherable to me.

Of course. I'm not stupid. Reference the aforementioned foxes guarding the henhouses. I don't like it. But it is what it is and it ain't changing no matter how much groups like this think it can.

Frowny and Ori ignoring the substance and simply resorting to "old" cliches. Typical. Time to play guitar.

And Washington would be right alongside me as I give the two-party system the finger. Can you point to the part of the Constitution that limits us to two parties? I thought so.
