    No more than 10% would be in physical shape to go to war no and no more than half would have an automatic weapon. The Army could deal with a million conservatives, none of whom would have the discipline to even obey an order to get vaccinated against diptheria

    The only political violence we have seen was Jan6. Sure, there was plenty of rioting over the racial issues last year (including violence and extensive property damage), but it was not about any political party.

    I believe what I saw Jan 6, and what I see people say in social media. People are talking about civil war and "watering the tree of liberty with blood" and the people making those comments are talking specifically about politics, and politicians, so its very different than some raving anarchist rioting for the sake of rioting.

    Only a fraction would actually do anything about it, while the rest approve/condone. But such high number approving of it is troubling in itself.

    True. We need to keep in mind that all governments are generally run by a few people who essentially use violence to rule everyone else. Trump and 1/6 has made this fact starkly evident in a very alarming way to us all.

    Okay sure, you would have to tell yourself that to continue erroneously believing as you do.


    So antifa and BLM are not politically motivated..... Okay sure tell that to someone who's willing to believe it.

    No, I don't have to tell myself anything.

    They are not politically motivated in the sense that they do not represent any party, and/or do not support or oppose any political party or politician. They have their own agenda, which is why you don't see them fly flags with party names, or names of politicians. On the contrary, Jan-6 type riot makes no bones about it, - they 100% about politics and the rioters wrap themselves in flags bearing the name of politicians and make threats against politicians of other parties.

    I do NOT condone what antifa or BLM protestors do when they turn protests into riots, but in the end of the day it is not about political parties.

    If you say so.

    You see the racial and gender issues as 'war' - but that doesn't mean its true. Pushing for the rights of the LGBTQ community is not a war. Wanting to ensure that unfair and unjust practices aren't inflicted upon visible minorities isn't a war. And I would love to know how you see the left promoting pederasty!

    Despite that being true, polls like this need to be published because......................hey look a squirrel..........................oops, I lost my train of thought, because the failed Democrat policies cannot be reported by the media so a bogey man must be created

    Democrat party persistent support for confrontation between races and genders leads to wars. So far it is a cold war, but who knows what will happen next.
    Same thing for LGBT, the special rights promotion at the expense of the society creates the backlash.

    If people are being killed by violence and their business' and livelihoods are being destroyed and the State and Federal governments are offering no protection, then how can the violence be curbed without resorting to violence in return?

    I dost believe that to be free
    we shouldn't give our guns to thee.

    And thus protect our house and home
    from all of those who like to roam,


    like animals so angrily,
    who tellest us so blatantly,

    that we should never dare to stray,
    for only they should have a say,


    in what we do, but not as we please
    while forcing us upon our knees,

    to worship gods of lust and greed,

    and things that we can never heed.

    Now these are things we did not choose
    And freedoms something we can't lose,

    to liberal laws and swords so cruel

    and brandished about by those who rule.

    - Jeannette

    So there are confrontations between the races, and the Dems support this? Do you see them as 'pushing' the confrontations? If so, how are they 'pushing' confrontations?

    And with respect to LGBTQ, to which 'special rights' are you referring?

    It takes profound levels of gullibility to buy this garbage. Does anyone bother to read the methodology?

    I see what I see, if you do not see it that means you are the participant or enabler.
    For starter, any division of people by races is already unconstitutional proposition.
    Only Democrat party divide people by races.

    Well... we waited patiently for a candidate that would represent us, only to see blantant voter fraud take the country's victory. What is left? WE continue to try the voting method.. but illegal voting and fraudulent voting do not seem to be abating.

    Almost a third of Republicans believe violence may be necessary to “save” the US, according to a new poll.

    Researchers at the Public Religion Research Institute, a nonprofit, found that 30% of Republicans agreed with the statement “Because things have gotten so far off track, true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country”.

    Among Americans who believe the 2020 election was “stolen” from Donald Trump, which it was not, 39% believe violence may be required.

    The troubling statistics show the post-election rancour that led to the violent insurrection at the US Capitol on 6 January is still very much in place.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/nov/01/republicans-violence-save-us-poll

    _________________________________________

    Trump has instrumentalized the extremism of the most violent Republicans to make them a legitimate political force.

    These people are a great threat to democracy and public security.

    This is the poisoned legacy he leaves behind.

    Thoughts ?

    So what laws have Dems passed that divide people by races? FTR, I agree that it is unconstitutional to divide people by race. Or gender.

    But you haven't really answered my question - what special rights have LGBTQ been given?

    I don’t think it’s troubling, I find it encouraging. The government damn well needs to know there are limits beyond which we will rebel.

    I don't see this as a problem because Joe Biden's top priority was to unite the country. Either he succeeded, making this issue a moot point, or he failed at his number one priority. Since the left is not willing to concede that Biden is a complete failure, then obviously he has succeeded in uniting the country making this issue completely irrelevant.

    The Election of Donald Trump was the Worst MISTAKE in American History.

    ^That is Universally Accepted, Inarguable, and Beyond Dispute.

    Obviously, Trump leaves behind a "Poisoned Legacy" that has permanently reshaped the American Political Landscape (in an Egregiously Negative Manner).

    ^Yet another Inarguable Statement (in regards to Trump's "Poisoned Legacy").

    Yup the current DNC Overlords are ever steady in pitting us against one another as you can see from your link :)

    If numbers are your game, then Among ALL AMERICANS paints a clearer picture then trying to demonize just one group :)

    You've had a stats class?
    And I also take everything with a grain of salt.
    My motto is something I learned a long time ago. Believe NONE of what you hear/read and only 1/2 of what you see.

    And polls are dependent on who's doing the poll, the type of question, and the sample group from which the data is taken from.
