Rule #1: A patriot votes republican.

Thanks, Rol this is the first time you responded to me in 5 years. I wonder what Democrats are called besides Liberal? Also you made me giggle I'm a huge fan of yours since I never signed up to VGChartz back in 2006 through 2016 until October 2017 I finally signed up. I was a WII U fan in 2012 and wanted Nintendo to keep selling harware WII U generation was tough.

Communists. Woke. Antifa.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Those 3 sound horrible, though Woke sounds less mean.

"Woke", by political definition, isn't mean at all. It is what it sounds like — aware and attentive. It has only been used as a negative connotation from sides who oppose its larger stating ideologies. 

Antifa, also by definition, isn't horrible either. What some do while claiming to support it doesn't refute its original meaning and purpose (Anti-Fascist). Much like BLM is sometimes called a "terrorist group" or "like the KKK" while being nowhere close to either description, despite what a few strays might do. Their message is simple and effective, not destructive and divisive (like that of a group like the Ku Klux Klan — originally a fraternal college organization birthed after the Emancipation Proclamation [abolishment of slavery]).

Communism, well, that's where things take a real downturn. Excellent read on that here.

At the end of the day politics is a waste of time. No matter who is in power you cannot rely on them to make your life better because the sails always change directions.

A better life needs to come from within and you as an individual need to make the right choices that meet your expectation and goals you want in life.

Now, I wouldn't say that's entirely true. Politics isn't just about who's in power or not. Some people's, dare I say a lot of people's, lives can be seen by others as inherently political. For example, being queer or even poor. A queer person like me just wanting to live my life, express my gender, and love who I love can be seen by bigots as inherently political and "shoving it in their face," so much so that laws were made to keep me from living my life. Just existing could be seen as a political act by those who oppose. Even poor people just trying to get by and better themselves is seen by some as political due to the use of government assistance in some cases, among other things. Same can be said of race/ethnicity, disability, etc. The ability to pursue one's happiness and politics can be very much linked for a lot of individuals.

You bring up some solid points there.

Ah yes I forgot about the bigots towards different sexual orientations. It always amazes me how people care so much about what others do that is harmless to their existence. I mean shit if anything they should be happy that their is less competition against them in trying to find a partner, but I guess fear of homophobia is stronger in their minds.

I guess race/ethnicity I forgot a long time ago. That is probably to a degree why I said what I said without realising it. Even though I am white, when I moved to Australia there was a bit of racism towards us. That is why we just learned to not rely on anyone and stand on our own two feet as government assistance back then wasn't great, even finding work was a challenge for my parents in their field of study. Either do nothing and fail and be miserable or work hard and better your life that was the mentality that I grew into so for me politics has become of a whatever as long as they not extreme radicals 9/10 times it doesn't matter to much who is in power. And to be fair Australia as far as I know hasn't ever voted in a Trump or a Hitler equivalent so they are relatively harmless and more looking to line their own pockets. So perhaps our political ties are not so entrenched in our lives as for most of us it hasn't made a significant impact one way or the other plus for most of us we are pretty chilled here. 

Actually there is one group of people I hate, and that is the damn bloody media lol. It is like they decided that clickbait headlines to create chaos about COVID, politics, sport etc is a MUST because they know most people will not read behind the headline so all it does it create drama and people arguing about the headline and what they think the news story is about.

I'm opposite, most people think I'm am an a-hole...   due to the lack of caring about what others think.  I do me.  



Dont marry yourself to the left or the right, they are both fucked up. Be better. Break the cycle. Rise above. Be a centralist.



Define yourself based on your own observations/research, or don't even bother at all.
You don't need to be more politically left or right. That's your call, and no one else's.
