    Why Politics Means Nothing In 2019. (Discuss)

    In 2019, politics means nothing. Right now we have two major parties that are the exact opposite of what they are called.

    Liberals: The definition of liberal is open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values. However, they are the opposite.

    Conservatives: The definition of conservative is holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion. What are they conserving? Nothing.

    We live in a world that is currently politically inverted to the point where they are arguing purely for power and control. The bickering and anger between the two parties leads to what those in power want. Destruction of our culture.

    All I see are political ideologues and shills spouting nonsense and bitching about how bad things are getting, yet are part of the very thing that is making things bad. People are still eating it up. What AOC says means nothing.

    School no longer teaches you how to think, only what to think
    Medical institutions that put corporate interest above making you healthy
    Department of Defense is really the Department of Offense
    A stay at home mom is seen as female slavery, but working in a cubicle for a corporation is seen as freedom
    Speaking truth is considered lying, and lying with power is pushed as truth.

    We live in a backwards society. Not because of politics, but because of our actions. Instead of bitching and complaining, be the change you want. Speak truth. Stand for something. Say no. Don't let shame dictate you. Politics has nothing to do with how you act, how you live, how you interact. Politics just corrupts the soul. Listening to politicians and bitching every day does nothing. Actually doing something and saying no, does. Not hiding in your room. Don't want LGBTQ taught in schools? Get the whole community and protest against it. That only passes if you sit in your room and bitch about it vs. not doing anything about it. Hate the demonization of men? Be a man. People tell you to apologize? Don't. Hate how females treat men? Stop paying attention to females that do.

    That's how you win. Not by bitching about the problem and then masturbating until you fall asleep, and then ultimately repeat that process until you're 39, alone, and depressed.

    That's how you win.

    Used to care about that politics stuff in 2008-2009. Never after that and never ever again.

    I just want my life to be easy and fulfilling.

    People have now become very selfish, they don't care who is winning or running the things around.

    Also people learned that they cannot blame the politicians for their problems anymore, that stuff is so outdated now.

    Didn't read but all the parties are so dichotomous that it's impossible as a reasonable person to agree with any one entirely.

    I believe in -

    Same sex marriage
    Pot legalization
    Small government
    Reduced immigration
    Abolition of SJW culture

    So who exactly am I supposed to vote for?
    500lb Squat
    375lb Bench
    655lb Deadlift

    201lbs Bodyweight

    You're totally right. But you know why it'll never happen?

    Because person #1 is waiting for person #2 to stand up for something. But person #2 is waiting on person #3.

    I care not for politics. It is a joke, and supporters of both parties are indoctrinated drones. I'll still vote for the lesser of two evils, but that action is insignificant in the grand scheme of it all.


    I can't make other men stand up and push back against feminist radicals and badly behaved females. All I can do is strengthen my convictions, try to be a better man, and encourage other men to do the same.

    The two party system is an illusion.

    The intelligence community and the Federal Reserve run the show, and the people don't have a say in who's in charge of those institutions.

    In the beginning Trump was an outsider with new ideas, but you see how the system has grinded him down, and made him conform to the status quo.

    Witnessing his presidency has been the ultimate black that proves that your vote has no impact on the direction society moves. People are too atomized in this hyper individualistic system to make a true impact.

    The only way change can be implemented is through numbers.

    The family has been decimated, and that is the foundation of a strong society. Real change isn't possible. The current system needs to be destroyed completely for true equity to reemerge.

    Yes. The government in a lot of ways spends most of its time trying to suppress peoples' ability to say no.

    The one that aligns most with your values, or against the one that goes against yours. Honestly the biggest issues are local elections. That's way more important. The President only has so much power.

    It is. They use fear to control you. They only succeed if you let them.

    Of course we have to pay taxes, follow the law, etc. But outside of that, you can do a chit ton of things. You have way more control over your life than which people lead you to believe.

    And the biggest problem is...

    If a "normal" candidate presented itself ( I mean some sort of utopistic common sense ideology ), he/she would be buried by both ends of the political spectrum ( and their supporters ) in no time at all.

    This. The honest and well meaning politicians get buried before they can even gain a shred of notoriety outside of their community.

    That's what I am saying. Live life the way you want other's to live. When people see you live a great life despite the horrors of the world, it inspires people. Actions prove much stronger than words.

    You're basically pointing out what I am saying. Good outlook.

    The family hasn't been decimated. That's what they want. You're missing the point.

    If I get married and have several kids, stay married, be a parent, and create a great family environment around my kids, that's the epitome of "the family." YOU decide to live that way. They can never take that away from you UNLESS YOU let them.

    Despair is a sin.

    Trump is and never was the savior. Don't put your trust in him fully. A president only has so much power. He's a pawn in the scheme of things.\

    Put your faith in truth, and those who speak it. Also, be it.

    What has Trump done to curtail pot and same sex marriage? Nothing. He's not perfect but at least he is fighting for securing the borders and fighting SJW culture. Small government? Everyone gets a fail .

    What's your alternative? Warren or Biden? In my list of things I care about, adolescent transgender issues is at the bottom of my concerns.

    Politics are just entertainment for poor/unhappy people nowadays.
    All of my clients are businesspeople/entrepreneur types, and not a single one is worth less than probably $20M. I've never had a single political discussion with any of them.

    With how polarizing politics are currently, anyone with a shred of intelligence realizes that you alienate 50% of the population by stating any type of political opinion. This may work for old people who have already been successful, but for anyone still trying to come up it can be career suicide.

    Exactly. That's why it doesn't matter. It's all smoke and mirrors.

    That's why you purely focus on living a life that relies as little as possible on the government.

    Yes, yes, and yes. People sit and bitch about every small change in their life from politics, without doing anything. Entrepreneurs like that adapt, and focus on how they can live in a way to win.

    Don't let politics guide you. Let your values, morals, and principles guide you

    The problem in the United States is that there's been a corporate coup d'etat of the government. The Founders of the country built the greatest nation the world had ever seen, protected by it's unique Constitution and giving the power to the people instead of a few wealthy elites at the top. That dream is gone, the elite are in control and that's why nothing changes. The corporate media serve this established money power that doesn't change through presidencies. The hand that gives doesn't get bit. That's why you never hear other foreign leaders on TV criticizing the US or about the war atrocities committed by the empire in foreign lands.

    The first president of the country warned about political factions and the divide they can wedge in the country. Now the country is dominated by these two major parties, all of whom the representatives serve their corporate donors rather than their constituents. Can you really blame them? If someone offers someone a dump truck of money they're going to take it 99 times out of a hundred, it's a systematic problem that politicians are bought by powerful special interest groups.

    Everything in the country is dominated by money: the war on drugs and private prison system, the pharmaceutical industry, congress, media, wall street, etc.

    The wealthiest contributed to the collapse of the economy in 2008 and guess who bailed them out. The American people. Who slave away each day at their meaningless jobs to pay income tax on interest to a debt they'll never be able to repay.

    People wonder why no one cares about politics, because they feel they have no say or voice. That's a symptom of a failed experiment. And you're right, nothing will change by sitting on your ass. I am not a political activist but I always recognize their importance in a democracy. They are the makers of serious change. A lot of people won't do anything until society completely collapses. If they can't eat is when you'd see an attempt at changing this. Otherwise nothing changes. The banking dynasties at the top of the food chain have us all enslaved by debt. It means we have far less money in our pockets and are ever burdened by a growing inflation rate caused by their scam system.

    "politics" In America hasn't meant anything in a hundred years because the "politics" you speak of is just the show they put on to fool you sheep, while the real leaders in the shadows continue to advance their cause which remains the same regardless of which puppet they are using at the moment ( republican or democrat)

    The same people who own the banks and the media are the same people who really are in charge of this country. The ones who have a thing for raping little girls and boys.

    National elections are utterly pointless other than for the dozen or so swing states.

    Local politics is huge. Your voice matters here and chit can get accomplished with a loud enough voice and enough followers. Hell you can even jump into politics yourself relatively easily. Steve Rocco, a conspiracy theorist and all around tard got elected to a school board near me out of a protest movement. The chit around you that you interact with daily is more important than whether or not the president supports gay bathrooms. Your local city council, mayor, sheriff, school board, assembly person, and senator all affect what's going on. Your streets, police, schools, traffic, residential and commercial development, etc. all have actual impact on life.

    Fix'd.
    It's always been that way, it's just that more people can actually think straight enough to see it these days. The propaganda is losing its effectiveness, because there are sources of information freely available to anyone who cares to look.
    Solutions:
    Stop them looking
    Make them look in the wrong places.
    The latter seems to be current policy, and isn't working that well. The future looks grim.
