I watch a lot of TV but I choose what I watch and none of it is mainstream news, just too biased.

A good bullshit filter is essential but it takes years of experience (and mistakes) to get one working just right.

I have a good bullshit filter and it took many decades to perfect which is why I never watch mainstream news and only watch Fox and Friends on Fox News channel, they are fair and balanced.

Fox IS mainstream news, clown. It is also rated as one of the most conservative news outlets there is in polls.

Fox and Friends morning show gives both sides of an issue and other news stations only give one side of the issue. Some of the shows on throughout the day are conservative in nature, which is why I mostly watch in the mornings only. I suspect most of you who think it is just conservative never watch it because it doesn't go along with what you want to think. I have been a registered democrat all my adult life but have never voted along party lines and because I vote for the people I like rather than the party, I also watch what I like instead of being fed the party bullshit.

Not voting democrat or republican does not automatically exempt you from being part of the problem.

then how can you claim that "Not voting democrat or republican does not automatically exempt you from being part of the problem"?

Because it doesn't. You just don't see the problem the same as I do. Polarized thinking is part of the problem. It isn't just about republicans vs democrats, it is about conservative vs liberal and you are definitely involved in that. As long as people keep playing us vs them the two party system will remain in place.

i am an Independant, how does that involve me in Demochimp vs. Repugnant?
you do not have the answers, nor do I, so claiming one is wrong and the other right is naive to say the least.

Yeah, but I didn't say that either.

you claimed i was not exempt from being part of the problem. that insinuates that i am also incorrect.

I don't think you are getting what I was trying to say. It is not about wrong vs right either. It is about how we THINK. If we have polarized ourselves then we are contributing to the problems that polarized thinking produces in society. That isn't in and of itself a value judgement of right or wrong. Your mind creates the insinuation because it is already polarized and those are the terms you think in. It doesn't mean it is right or wrong. Those are fields you fill in on your own.

the relative immediate reality is wrong, the problem is that thee is no immediately obvious alternative. i am as polarized a person as you will most likely ever encounter.

Your perception that "the relative immediate reality is wrong, the problem is that thee (there) is no immediately obvious alternative" is based entirely upon your "i am as polarized a person as you will most likely ever encounter" mindset. You don't see that though and you can't see it due to the mindset you have confined yourself to, so you will remain stuck where you are and you will never see any possible solution until that mindset is done away with. What happened to United We Stand?

if your perception of our current reality is anything but we are fucked unless something is done ASAP, you are contributing to the false reality being rammed down our throats, but hey, the sheep are the ones who will be promoted to positions of power.

There is no immediate solution and very few if any long term solutions. Doing away with the 2 party system really does nothing but maybe hide the candidates beliefs from the public. With no visible party affiliations it will make holding certain congressmen responsible for failing their job.

Not even a violent overthrow of the government will be a viable solution because after it is over we will be right back to the same problems we have now. We would still have the same massive debt and the same problems with elected officials we do now the only difference will be the amount of dead we incur during the take over.

Maybe we should "try" to get everyone in the country to sit at home on strike for one day to show the government we want a change. Even that would be impossible because there would be no way to get enough people to agree to do it which would even be noticed. The only way to make any noticeable difference would be for the entire US to unite together and show solidarity that we want change and that will never happen.

So I guess I agree, we are fucked and we will just have to buckle our seat-belts and see what happens and do our best to deal with the consequences of our actions this past election.
