Hi Arielle, I came across your interview with Timcast IRL yesterday...I want to applaud your willingness to have an open mind. I think it is awesome that you aren't blindly following along with the herd of LGBT Americans who have been convinced that Replicans and those on the right somehow want to destroy the LGBT community. The truth is, there are closed minded people on both sides of the political spectrum, yet the left have convinced many people that they are the only ones who will welcome LGBT folks and stand up for their rights. As more Americans from the LGBT community join the right in the fight for individual liberty, there's no doubt that we will also be joining together in the fair and equal treatment of all people, regardless of orientation. Rather than continue to digress, I wanted to say that I think you're awesome, and I wanted to share a link to a video. I know there will be some things that you don't agree with here, but I really wanted to to see how the political spectrum is described and how the government is explained. It is very accurate and it contrasts the highly offensive way that the left depict people on the right as being facists. I hope you find it informative!
As a Brit I really struggle with Americas "beacon of freedom" - stuff. As a concept its quite good but...
For the most part the European West are find you lot hypocritical when you go on about "freedom" and then bomb everyone else for oil and bully other people to turning over patents on healthcare research.
Go on about freedom and how amazing capitalism is but can't agree on living wage.
The upper elites have always been those that own own control. This video mentions Tyranny of the elite. The same argument used by communists when encompassing capitalist bourgeoisie vs the politariet.
The oligarchy vs democracy vs republic metaphor I felt was pretty flawed. Because then who decides on the "amendments"...
Educate me because I cannot get onboard with the right wing american ideas.
Indont had capitalism as a concept, or socialism as a concept. I hate human nature for being greedy.
