    Aw, you poor thing. Must be tough being the only one to have everything figured out. It's really too bad your enlightened self will be crushed under the weight of humanity. Such is the fate of those ahead of their time. Tragic.

    And those examples are utterly dwarfed by the sheer quantity of documented incidents of leftist violence against Trump supporters. The right is not wholly innocent, but the left is a hell of a lot more guilty of perpetrating violence than the right is. This phenomenon is not recent and is endemic to collectivist ideology. When an individual already had the position prior to the agreement of others and others reach that same position based on their interpretation of that evidence, then that is called a consensus. Note the distinction between an echo chamber and consensus. Every individual that you think comprises my "echo chamber" reached the same conclusion independently of me.

    I also repeatedly brought up violence. My echo chamber? Must be more of that controlled opposition at work.

    Antifa was also tied to West Coast arson. That aside, why in the hell are you focused exclusively on arson? The left is more violent by several orders of magnitude. Violence from the right falls well short of the violence that has come from the left. Damn near everyone in this thread has pointed this out to you, but you'll be damned if you can engage your brain enough to focus on details. Not everything is controlled opposition. Stereotypically lazy Libertarian thinking. Furthermore, the alt-right does not have the numbers or political support to give them parity with Antifa. If the alt-right did half the things Antifa did, then they would be in prison en masse.

    https://www.startribune.com/body-found-in-wreckage-of-mpls-pawn-shop-burned-during-george-floyd-unrest/571838681/ It's like you try to be as ignorant as possible. This goes all the way back to the bike-lock professor. Unless, of course, hitting people in the head with bike locks is normal to you. The left has been much more violent than the right for the entire duration of Trump's presidency. The amount of violent crime coming from the right is dwarfed by what Antifa alone has achieved. Humans can use weapons. They don't need to be imposing physical specimens or uniquely intelligent. In numbers, they are dangerous regardless of their appearance.

    Let's not pretend nobody died in Antifa's burned buildings. Setting that aside, your earlier attempt to equivocate Antifa with the Proud Boys remains nonsense. Furthermore, the article you cited did not recognize a motive and dismissed race as a consideration. Even if we assume the murderers were "far right" (evidence beyond your cited article is required to support this), it falls well short of the numbers of black-on-white homicide (which nobody considers politically aligned, just as white-on-black homicide should not be). Color me unimpressed with your argument, especially since ethnic violence typically falls outside of the left/right paradigm. The sides are not equivalent and the number of people perpetuating violence from each side is not equivalent.

    The plot targeting Michigan's governor has nothing at all to do with Antifa and the Proud Boys not being even remotely similar in ideology or, more importantly, deed. One group vandalizes businesses, burns buildings, and assaults the other side with the sanction of Democrat DAs. The other does not. I understand your personal philosophy creates a need to equivocate the left and right, but it does not change the fact it is fallacious.

    Equivocating Trump supporters concerned with Antifa antics with Biden supporters concerned with the Proud Boys is ludicrously fallacious as they are in no way similar groups. One group is burning things to the ground, isolating and beating Trump supporters, and the other is plainly not. The rhetoric coming from the two sides is not even similar. The assaults on Trump supporters have been going on since prior to the 2016 election and a great many people are afraid to wear a damned hat for fear of retaliation. In contrast, someone could wear a Biden hat and they will not get assaulted, lose their job, or have their car vandalized. The origin of the "fear" each side has is not the same.

    They got "misted". Big deal. People get "misted", unknowingly or otherwise, by conversating with people. That you had to elevate it to the level of purposefully spitting at someone and then attempt to turn it into a partisan affair is because you are intellectually deficient. You are a liability to those around you. Seek help, because you need it. Badly.

    I would expect this asinine level of thinking to be spawned by someone attempting to parody a Libertarian. To believe it fully? Good God. A punch in the face is an appropriate response to someone breathing... Why not just allow the man to be killed? His breathing could have killed them, remember? Get help. You are more of a danger to those around you than this pandemic is.

    There is wisdom in this. Americans are not defined by our government but rather by our belief in a set of shared cultural tenets. Americans can persist in the event we go our own way from the ascendant Marxists. Of course, Marxists never leave anyone alone and violence will be forthcoming. Tyrants will not suffer the independent man to live.

    Humanity's tendency toward hierarchical arrangement can be identified by the constant presence of leaders. Absent leaders, very little gets done. As the number of people involved increases in number, and the goals of a movement broaden in scope, eventually one man comes to represent the figurehead of the efforts of millions. In this present time, that man is Donald Trump. For the great many flaws he possesses, he, more than any man, currently stands for the continuation of an American Republic that is identifiable to those who cherish its traditions. That is the reason he is so significant a person in the minds of millions. The country is not operating on a micro scale at this point. Everything is macro due to the chasm that separates the ideologies permeating this country. The left's agenda lies in stark contrast to the alternatives. As such, attempts to change voting, the electoral system, or supporting legislation meant to affect meaningful change has little importance at the present time. We are rapidly reaching what will likely, in future times, be considered a transformative moment in history. It is worth noting that jmdrake is correct that "Trump must win" or "civil war" is a false dilemma. Technically, there are also the options of passive acquiescence to tyranny or subversion. Patriots have no interest in passive acquiescence to tyranny. In the event of Trump's loss, this leaves "civil war" and "subversion". Both of those options mean individuals need to be physically and mentally able to fight to the best of their ability.

    BSWPaulsen replied to a thread Great Reset in U.S. Political News
    This is a healthy reminder that both sides are not the same. Of course, someone will likely claim things like the "Great Reset" are just a boogeyman meant to keep everyone locked into the current system through a fear mechanism. If that same person were to turn their head to the right, then they would be able to see their colon.

    It seems worth noting that the left's thugs would have already been disappeared if the police did not exist. At this point, the purpose of the police is to protect criminals from citizens. Breaking the right's fascination with the "thin blue line" is vital. I would argue the primary reason for the right's paralysis and lack of a will to do anything is because of its respect for law and order. In a healthy society, this is okay. In this society, it enables anarcho-tyranny.

    For big business/corporations, it is safe to say the policy has been to emphasize the economic productivity of immigrants over anything else. For the left, they simply want to import the voters that will keep them in power in return for "social benefits". This is why both Republicans and Democrats have made no earnest attempt to do anything about it. The only people that care about the assimilation of immigrants are the Americans that actually have to deal with the practical repercussions of open borders policies. Those same Americans are quickly becoming strangers in the country of their ancestors.

    I added a bit to my post above. I respect those that take imprisonment over complying, and you are right that some people do great work from there. I also respect the hell out of anyone that elects to fight at the moment enforcement is attempted. I really do, because honor is something vital to Western Civilization and American men. Unfortunately, it is also foolish to fight the enemy at the time of their choosing. I'd much rather patriots appear to acquiesce to the demands of tyrants on the surface, then strike down the tyrants when their guard is lowered.

    Step one is noncompliance. Step two is complying if they force it upon you for the sole purpose of retaining your physical freedom. Step three is using your physical freedom to engineer the destruction of those responsible for its enactment and enforcement. My humble suggestion to those that will not comply is to, under no circumstances, sacrifice your physical freedom. Sure, it is not the honorable approach where you fight to the bitter end to keep the damned mask off your face and get thrown in a cell or killed for your efforts, but it is the one that best promises a chance of actually making the bastards pay for their decision to enforce the mandate. Patriots are better served subverting and sapping those in power than spending their time honorably rotting away in prison or dead. Of course, the mileage of others may vary. I respect those that would fight to the bitter end after any attempt at enforcement. However, it'd be a shame to let enforcers take the fight to patriots at times of their choosing. Just as the Founders of this country used guerilla warfare to their advantage, the goal is not just to fight the good fight but also to win.

    They may not like Biden, but they enjoy controlling society more as it cleanly aligns with their worldview. Basically, those "some from the DNC" that drift over would be irrelevant. It still would not change the fact that breaking the GOP into smaller groups would ensure even more impotent opposition to Democrat policies.

    Answering the question in the topic: no. Aside from that, splitting the GOP or rebranding it will do nothing to affect Democrat power. If anything, it further entrenches it by dividing the Republican coalition into smaller, even more impotent groups. Both the Democrat and Republican parties would need to fragment for the two-party system to be meaningfully broken.

    Rally attendance seems more an indicator of enthusiasm for a particular individual than anything else. There is no question voter enthusiasm for Trump was much higher than for Biden. Similarly, Ron Paul had fantastic rallies but it did not translate into voting numbers. As for planning, that is why contingency planning exists. Also, the fact plans can go awry does not mean an absence of planning is superior.

    Absent data indicating otherwise, they do indeed appear to be numerically superior (example: the left winning the popular vote from '08 to present). I am welcome to correction on this point. And I am very appreciative of the effort that has gone into winning over minds, this forum being notable for it. However, the left has a firm hold on the academic system that churns out ardent believers in the leftist cause in incredible numbers every year. That is the juggernaut we currently face and our reach simply is not as good as theirs. Combine it with the modern social media phenomenon that routinely censors anything right-of-center and it does not bode well. On the "gun toting" side, the left has been arming up recently. This is part of the reason the gun market has been so damned overpriced in recent years. The reason I find this problematic (how I have come to despise this lefty buzz word that used to be otherwise innocuous) is because they are already very well organized. The right, on the other hand, shows no indication of widespread organization. For all of the benefits of individualism, it is less effective at organization than collectivism.
