This is a discussion on Not for political discussion, but I do have a question..... within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; The older you get the more you rant politics....
The older you get the more you rant politics.
I don’t know about other electronic forums and stuff, but many of the forums I’m on, such as this one being a gun forum are centered around topics that are inherently political.
We get the government we deserve.
Unfortunately unless something radically changes, the future of this Republic will be decided with violence, a second Civil war is brewing.
If you will allow...
Politics is the mechanism by which citizens exercise essential control over their lives in a republic. It is as necessary to the republic as is air to the living.
The opposite of politics is apathy. Apathy means the citizens do not care what happens to them or their families. Apathy is death by slow strangulation to the republic.
Of course it follows that politics is the essential medium for would-be tyrants to gain a toe hold in the system so that they may exercise complete control over the lives of their victims by other means.
I do not remember who said all that, and I doubt I have quoted it accurately, but you get the drift.

"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." - Thomas Jefferson
I use to bore people about electronics in my early days of my career. About every decade I come up with a new subject to annoy someone. Now I've been criticized by some friends about my 2A activism. Oh well.......
Microwave technicians are fully deviated.

We are in a serious war that so far is bloodless. But it is a war nonetheless. There is no longer any sane option to sit it out anywhere now. The left is fighting this fight everywhere and every way they can. I don't think we have the luxury of trying to take the "moral high ground" anymore. Besides, we don't need to. On our worst day, right thinking Americans are on a higher moral level than the left on any day. That is a given. This is approaching a situation on a parallel with the Nazi occupation of Europe. People who don't take a side and do something, anywhere they can, are essentially a collaborators and enablers. We need to fight their tactics with the same or worse and not think twice about it. So if I see a site that is not dealing with politics I think two things: 1) Why isn't it dealing with politics?, and 2) It is only a matter of time before it will.

Any attempt to say there exists any kind of equivalence between our Domestic Enemies and we Americans is so beyond foolish that the words don't exist to describe it. Since their Evil disease has infected every. single. aspect. of life here in the US, it is no wonder that nowhere in public discourse is there a place not stained by Leftist politics and commentary about it, including this fine forum website.
Think about it-this country was once the last place on Earth that valued Liberty; it by God's grace and man's hard work, devotion, and sacrifice. At the hands of Democrats and their innumerable allies, Columbia lays gang-r**** and bludgeoned in an urban gutter, bleeding out from the proverbial Thousand Cuts.
There's right and there's wrong. Many of us of d'un certain âge were brought up to know the difference. I was raised to think that lying, stealing, murdering, racism, sexual perversion, and treason were wrong. Secular Jihadis (Democrats) have institutionalized these things into their belief/feels system. Current Democrats have no respect for right and wrong because they've abandoned themselves entirely over to their sin and wish to live in a country patterned after Sodom and Gomorrah or as a real life incarnation of the movie Caligula (1979) or the Gore Vidal novel of the same name. The Democrats have no spiritual, moral or intellectually defensible position that describes their status as Americans beyond this being their place of somehow avoiding the abortionist's knife.
