    The right wing never, and I mean never, does anything wrong. Well, in their eyes anyway.

    The irony of the whole situation is that it was the Trump camp that originally used the word "collusion," as in there wasn't any. The FBI was investigating, or trying to investigate when their director was summarily fired, Russian meddling in the campaign, and not any collusion. Nevertheless, Trump denied collusion, which now appears to have happened.

    The "irony" is that there are still those who believe Trump & co.

    That's more than an irony. That's a miracle.

    or maybe hypnosis... mass hypnosis....no, that's just a silly conspiracy theory, right?

    No, it is that one dimensional thinking most are infected with on both the left, and the right. Makes it impossible for one to consider more then one concepts at a time.

    So do I. Way off on the libertarian side, just about at the center of the liberal/conservative continuum.

    I think there's a third dimension as well, just like in the real world: in foreign policy, from isolationist to neoconservative. I'd probably come out somewhere in the middle of that one, too.

    I am also way off on the libertarian side, but also squarely to the left (in the middle of the left side of continuum), almost to the center of the Left/Libertarian square.

    I have always looked upon myself as a Classical Liberal in the form of the Founders. Most people who count themselves as "patriots" have no clue as to what the Founders stood for when it comes to corporations, taxes, foreign relationships, taking care of the poor, etc., or even gun rights. Their lack of knowledge as to the intentions of the Founders in regard to the country (and I look upon the Founders as being very intelligent even if somewhat naive at times) is what has brought us to the confused point we are at now where the two most popular candidates for President were the too least qualified to be President. I am not certain the country can survive Trump, and fear that his replacement may be of even a lower quality such as a Ted Cruz, or a Jeb Bush.

    Given the time in which they lived, they were radicals, revolutionaries. What, all men are created equal? No nobility, no royalty, all equal under the law? Why, that's just way, way out of the mainstream thought.

    Well, it was a while before people with excess melanin and no penis or property were considered to have been created equal, but still, it was radical thought for the time.
