Things like this:

"Mr. Webmaster, your liberal base don't care about coal jobs."

Are rather annoying. This is a local site. It is here for the citizens of Miles City. It's for you. Not me. If you want to use it, use it. Use it how you want. I don't control what people post - other than to ban spammers and moderate the few who cannot follow rules or the basics of civil discourse.

So please, give me a break on the "liberal base". If you want a "conservative base" on this site, then more of you need to show up to let your opinions and thoughts be known.

What I find amusing is being lumped into "the liberal" base by the hicks, rubes, and hayseeds who are being duped by Trump.

I live in Helena. To the liberals who live here, I am close to Attila the Hun, as I support mining, logging, and oil and gas development. On issues that divide liberals and conservatives like immigrants and bathrooms, I could care less.

As a moderate, I side with the liberals on believing that rich people should pay higher taxes to rebuild our nation's infrastructure. I really don't understand why conservatives are against that. Who doesn't want better road, rails, dams, etc.?

But, I guess when you exist on a steady diet of Faux News, you are incapable of forming your own opinions.

And those opinions need to be well-thought out, not just propaganda repeated from Faux News or Infowarps. Back up your claims with actual facts. Explain WHY you feel the way you do, what informed your decision, and if it is "because some white guy on tv told me so," go away.

Speaking of opinions, how much credence do you give to a person who is unwilling to sign their name to their opinion?

So say we all:

"What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label, "Liberal"? If by "Liberal" they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer's dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of "Liberal." But, if by a "Liberal," they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people - their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties - someone who believes that we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say that I'm a "Liberal."

The conservatives have been lead astray, as the white nationalist said prior to trumps election. Trump is a Zionist liberal and the world is falling into a war that the left wants. I hope a leftist does something stupid like really believing trump is against them and takes action, oh they are. The only reason trump is deporting a bunch of Mexicans is to piss them off and start the anti white killing that the liberals want. Of all of trumps promises, the only ones he has kept are ones that give government more control over our lives.

Trump is the ultra left, the wall is to keep you in. No Obama care resolution. The abolition of TPP only strengthens corporations and their hold on the purse strings of the UN trade union and the petro dollar. He is still selling ISIS weapons, and just gave Saudi Arabia lots of military equipment. this could go on and on, trump is still taking aim at the BRICS nations, which Hillary said she would do as well. she would have targeted Russia, trump is targeting north Korea and Iran. either way BRICS and NATO are going to war. Hillary and trump are giving America the same end result. that result is the desired outcome that "Zionist bankers" from the "synagogue of Satan" want.

YAHWEH is lord, and he will save those whom are not lead astray.

I'm not going to respond to the above, other than to state, while you (gunsngold) didn't participate in this exchange from 2016, it leads to the same point from back then...

So you say he was lying. And you are okay with that. Great. And how now, do you know he was not also lying to you?

You flat out admitted he was lying, and it doesn't matter to you - and you're kinda pretty sure he's only going to lie to everyone else, well at least only to the ones on the other side, but not you.

Good luck with that.

In any case, please move national and world political issues to the appropriate forum, which would be this one:
