48. Unfortunately, your views are rather high-strung...

With regards the U.S. being a "right-wing hell hole," this is because, as a liberal commentator said on C-Span the other day, we have 2 parties: one powerful and right-wing; the other, "ineffective."

It is easy to make a "hell hole" where there is no opposition.

Your use of "gun nut" (apparently okay by the mods, now) is unsupported in terms of crime rate trends or any other measures of social ills, and in any case, is not linked to such purported ills. You chastise others for not "see the connection between these issues" when you have wholly ignored them yourself.

"Frankly it's bizarre that a forum whose main concentration is cheerleading far right issues and politicians even exists at this site."

Again, you do not explain "...cheerleading far right issues and politicians" (or even list such), but miss-read your fellow liberal progressives, or merely seek to morally condemn them.

You seemed perplexed that this 'forum' exists at this site. You need to re-educate yourself on the Second Amendment. It is (and always has been) a liberal issue to extend and expand ALL rights in the Constitution, including the Second. This has been done with regards the Second, coming as it has right along with the extension and expansion of other civil rights since the 1960s. THAT is why this 'forum' exists -- and why it has a powerful effect -- at this site.
