Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

A basic principle of consciousness is that you can't solve a problem with the same mentality that created it. Fighting violence with violence simply creates more violence. The reason for this is the ego's tendency to escalate when it feels threatened, which results in a spiral of increasing escalation. People will die if this course of action is taken, and we have to ask ourselves if killing fellow Americans for our cause is better than if necessary, dying for it. Literally, you cannot promote equality with a gun, the ultimate symbol of inequality, where the ego behind the gun has decided it needs to be the overdog and the person in front of the gun, the underdog.

Re: “Former County Democratic Party leader forms new club to keep politicking

We absolutely have to get past the 2016 election, or we will lose 2018 and most of all, lose the gift that Donald Trump has given us of providing a true alternative to the GOP agenda of destroying our nation. That means setting aside personal feelings over how unfair it was that our preferred candidate for president lost. Acting on those kinds of feelings is a form of selfishness, where we put our emotional needs ahead of the needs of our country on issues like Equality for all races/creeds/enthnicities/sexual orientations, Healthcare, Endless War, ending unlimited campaign contributions, access to education for all, and many more issues that all Democrats fundamentally agree upon. We must focus on the needs of our country and all our fellow citizens, not on our own emotional self-gratification. My advice is to take a tennis racket and beat a pillow yelling "dammit! It's unfair! I hate the unfairness! I hate feeling cheated! I hate what's happened!" until you're exhausted. Then have a nice cup of tea and go meet someone you would have fought with and plan to win 2018 together!
