    Do you have enemies?
    I mean ,elsewhere than in your head ?
    In point of fact my friend you do have enemies.

    ISIS would love to murder you for your way of life.

    I have no doubt you have no ill will toward other people but this does not stop irrational people from having ill will to you.

    It is unavoidable. In a polarized world having any viewpoint will make you an enemy of someone.

    Your belief that men and women are equals is extremely offensive to Shari'a adherents - for example.

    Not too bad for being an atheist myself .

    I am simply not a paranoiac.
    You're mistaking this term with coward.
    Cowards .The way you see the others .You , alone against the whole world.
    I think you're correct that we should make every effort to love our neighbors, and treat others with the same respect we wish to be treated (the Golden Rule my mom taught me). I also think that it's foolish to assume that's enough, that good wishes will keep the enemies of peace away. It's been attributed to John Jay to say "hope for the best but prepare for the worst" and I don't think loving your neighbors excludes you from some degree of preparation for the worst. The two things can work together.
    Sometimes we do need a degree of divisiveness to kick us into action to solve problems. Americans tend to drag our problems out into the open and examine them to death, and eventually we get tired of examining them and want to take some action. Hope for the best: this is what voters are saying by supporting Trump. Prepare for the worst: Sanders might win.

    I was thinking it might mean Bad Bitch.

    Regardless, "what difference does it make", I have already identified some white hate groups that are card carrying members of the Dumbocratic Party.

    Usual liberal blahblah from someone who denies that evil exist and who thinks that all men are good .

    Education will save the world ? Thus Auschwitz proves that there wa no education between 1942 and 1945 :?

    Teach love and tolerance for the foreigners to your child ? To the ISIS foreigners or to the New Year foreigners of Cologne ?

    Never heard of : La tolérance,il y a des maisons pour cela ? (for the Shakespeare boys : une maison de tolérance = a house of prostitutes .)

    There is to much tolerance for the criminals :it is time,more than time,for a big clean up .

    Never heard of : la peur du gendarme est le commencement de le sagesse ? of course not

    For the Shakespeare boys: Fear of the police is the beginning of wisdom.

    Take away the police, and you will see how good people are .

    Or maybe you think that the murderers of november in Paris were poor boys who never had the chance of a good education ?


    Of course you have no enemies,because you remain in Alice's Wonderland and you refuse to enter the real world .

    Liberalism has proved its incompetence, it is time for the good old means to protect society .
    If it is already not to late .

    The first mission of the state is to protect the citizens,well then : liberals have abandoned the people . Out with them .

    That has been done with your current hero.

    That's a very interesting idea. Maybe he should be running on that platform - the guy who will start us all over again.

    Meanwhile I think it's safe to say that American elections are now totally focused on the lowest common denominator in parties, candidates and voters.

    There used to be a saying that great leaders arose in times of great troubles, but that does not seem to be the case any longer.

    No...you must look for someone who represents the will of the majority of the people at all times, doesn't lie, doesn't cheat and has morals and ethics.

    People will follow a good leader, as our history has proven time and again. Divisiveness is a sign of poor leadership.

    Dividing the country by race has nothing to do with democracy nor politics. It's not remotely constructive in any form. So you reach unanimity by creating a country for dems, republicans and libertarians. Where at least everyone would be in agreement in overarching principles.

    Else, you achieve a thriving democracy in which differing ideals can coexist peacefully by being reasonable, uniting on common goals, adhering to the constitution, and yes be open to some form of give and take.

    To vote for someone because he pisses the opposing side off the most is extremely juvenile and counterproductive. You have to keep in mind that he still has to work with the side that now hates him, so his ability to get anything done is going to be impossible.
    Absolutely correct, but tell it to all those misguided fools who voted for Obama because he was "black"....well...sort of, anyway. And if you want assinine in spades, Obama's clarion call to America was "I'm not Bush"! Brilliant. We elected a man to president because he wasn't the other guy.

    Kind of puts voting for the guy who pisses off the other guy into better perspective, doesn't it?

    The American two party system is completely broken, but unfortunately its very presence makes it impossible to fix it because that would collide with all of the vested interests. It will take the complete collapse of America to bring about any meaningful changes.

    No...it means that you have the wrong convictions, and that's why everybody hates you.

    So vote for him an talk him up with friends and family. He is the best that we have and because of that he cannot get elected.
