    I don't believe the "findings" mean too much in the sense that anyone who cares seems to want them to matter.

    How does this explain people whose political views change wildly throughout their life time?
    To err is human, to really foul things up requires a computer.

    Yes because we all recall elections in 1992-96-08-12 when conservatives went rushing out in multiple large cities blocking traffic while women put snatches on their head to protest and all those Republicans who boycotted all those inaugurations and Cabinet votes. Definitely proof of the insanity of conservatives - stuff only the right did by which I mean only the nutbag left.

    Like I said, "...they are justified...". Both sides think their cause is just and the other's is not.

    I'm a democrat and a liberal although not a member of the nutbag left, and Trump is very scary to me. It's not so much about his political views as it is I think he will come unhinged and make a really stupid decision in the future.

    Do you lock your doors/windows every night or when you leave home?

    I don't think he did. He can come get mine too. I wouldn't need 'em to keep it from happening. He's just another alt-lefter that likes to keep a smart mouth on the internet all day everyday.

    What about you? Do you lock your doors and windows at night?

    alt-left? That's a new one, what's that? A stalinist marxist since they fought the Nazi's and now the Alt-right?

    Yeah, to answer your question, of course I do. I also have guns and believe all Americans have to right to own them. But I also made no BS Claims that "I Fear nothing" I have many perfectly rational fears as all normal humans do. Though I don't fear Mexicans even though there are plenty around here and know that my odds of being killed by a refugee are 1 in 3.6 Billion so I don't really fear them either. And I also don't want to spend billions or hundreds of billions to protect myself from insane irrational crap like most of the chicken-crap that most of the Right seems to be terrified of.
