To think - or promote the idea the there are "right wing" GOP that are as violent as the Socialist left is misguided. Watch this video and see what the left does to a law abiding member of the GOP. He's a Trump supporter. This is reality.

This is a horror. I could not see clearly the reporter with the red shirt. Bless him no matter what his leanings are. On the other hand I could see the guy in the green shirt stopping them and perhaps saving that guys life. Mobs jack people's fake courage up. How much courage does it take to pound and kick someone who is already down. I am against the hate groups whether they are called left or right.

I guess it comes down to how you define right vs. left.

I view the right end of the spectrum as favoring a federalist system of government with limited government interference. That puts Libertarians on the far right. The left end of the spectrum favors centralized, even global, government with authoritarian power over speech, thought, and wealth. That puts the KKK and Antifa both on the far left, as their aims are to exert power over the "other" and promote or denigrate certain groups through government action.

For some reason, most are useful idiots who let CNN, MSNBC, the DNC, BLM and other groups define who is "far right" or "alt right". They've apparently been successful in divorcing those terms from politics, and instead they've attached them to social views and no longer in terms of how the groups view the relationship between government and the governed.
You've put this very well Sno. I want less government control over my religion and life. The media gets in the game with accusations of left and right that often don't express what I believe at all.

I have heard that Mr. Trump is laying off people which is a step in smaller government. I hope he keeps it up.

Heard today on Hannity that Trump's executive order that 2 regulations be retired/eliminated for each new proposed regulation has been a smashing success -- the actual rate right now stands at 16:1 -- for each new regulation, Trump's administration has eliminated 16.

Mongo likey. Trump is moving in the right direction on many fronts.

In comparison, after 6 months of Trump's presidency there are 11,000 fewer federal workers. After the 1st 6 months of Obama, he added 60,000 new federal employees. Per jobs reports.

Sno and Ddawg, I appreciate the information you're giving here. 16:1 means businesses will be freed up to produce more which means they'll need to employ more people and their prices will go down benefiting we the consumer. 11,000 fewer federal workers means there will be less burden on we the tax payers. Those 11,000 can get jobs in the more efficient businesses.

Bingo. Exactly. Opposite of what the MSM and socialist democrat propagandists are putting out, Trump is doing a lot of good.

Why do you think Wall Street keeps setting record, after record, after record? Because the oppressive and expensive regulatory burden that Obama imposed over the last 8 years is being rolled back. Wall St. is not stupid. Amazing what American business can do when they are not relegated to ATM status for lefty democrat social engineering programs.
