    You're right, he continued to promote his desire to do away with the 1% and all our private insurance while assuring us he's not one of those Venezuela kind of socialists. When asked directly, he...

    I watched tonight's debate as well. I'm not impressed with the majority but I do like Mayor Pete, he seems to me to have more integrity than the rest of the field combined.

    I think you missed my point. It's not that the conservative take is saner, it's that the reasonable response is saner and you identify that with conservatives. That's why there's hope for you yet.

    I think only those wishing to disarm us think in terms of civilian responders attempting to "magically" save the day.

    I'm a practitioner of the OODA Loop concept and in that same scenario I'd...

    If I were you I'd approach it in the same manner typically used to declare people who's opinion you don't like as racists, homophobes , misogynists or Trump supporters. That should do it.
