Good riddance to those on the far-left.
They're not going anywhere. Where do you think all those highly indoctrinated college students are going to be soon? Yep. Running the place.

A wall should be built around the place to keep them out while there still is time. I agree with your estimation.

As far as big pharma and big oil go, the bigger they are the more damage they do. And the easier they are to identify. I worry more about a truckload of Oxycontin that a kilo of cocaine. The Coke must be stopped by nearly any means necessary but the Oxy's turn sick people in pain into addicts who run out of legal ways to feed the need and turn to the illegal drugs for relief. Only taxpayers, family members and addicts suffer while big pharma and narco terrorists make out like gluttons at a buffet. While we all foot the bill!
So far as I know, no one is forced to take drugs. Each person has a choice they can make.

If "big oil" is a problem for you then one can take public transit or use an electric car.

I do take public transit and I do not have medical problems that require narcotics, yet. But I'm only 64.

I study history because it repeats itself either extreme leads to destruction. It's kind of like a diet. The proper kind needs to be balanced. If you only eat fruit you will lack protein but if you only eat meat you will lack vitamins. Driving too near either side of the road will usually expose you to hazards that seldom exist near the center of the road. The farther you travel on either shoulder the sooner you will have a blowout!

The Centrist ignore the irrelevant emotional rhetoric from both sides informs a nuanced opinion based on logic and reason

I tried to register online but it was a Clinton scam. I later found out I needed an ID from this state and register at the Department of motor vehicles which required a birth certificate. I took 6 mos. Oklahoma does not accept DD214's, VA, Social Security Award letters or out of state ID's.

PeeWee Herman
I literally wrote in Peewee Herman
I voted for Chris Kenniston of the Veterans party. He sounds a bit like Trump, but without the blowhard egotistical bs Trump likes to bathe in.

Conservatives have moved as far right as libs have moved left. Neither holds the middle ground any more. And no I don't see either side changing any time soon

I'd worry more about far left if we are talking about Christian views. Where do you see far right values in conservativism? Perhaps start there.

If I say I'm against gay pride parades, abortion and legalizing all narcotics does that make me a conservative? But I also am against big oil, big pharma and the John Birch Society. Am I a Liberal? What happened to freedom of speech? When did calling someone a liberal become an insult? And what's wrong with states having the authority to legalize Cannabis? Am I supposed to pick a side when I disagree with much that both sides have to say? And why are we still using an electoral system that was created when people that worked away from their homes went to work on horses, if they could afford them? Submarines, airplanes and telephones were Sci-Fi.
But I also am against big oil, big pharma and the John Birch Society.
So you oppose the John Birch Society?

So then you support and promote wealth redistribution, collectivism, globalism and big government?

Guess what replaces so-called 'big-government'? For-profit prisons for one and God forbid the 'redistribitors' ever get their hands on the SSA, it would b gone in seconds.
