You can find any source material you like.

I even posted one here in this thread.

What I like about RB is that he is funny and articulate. He has his views. And I’ve seen many of his videos. I generally watch most of them unless it’s about something that doesn’t interest me.

But he can easily make a dull subject engaging.

I’ve seen what his views on Trump are. But his views are neither hysterical or deranged. They are well constructed arguments.

And, he is such a big man to even acknowledge himself that Trump was treated unfairly and that all the ramblings against him and to silence him were things he as a liberalist oppose.

I have no concern whether he is left. He is liberal. And he has been very critical of the left lately because they have morphed into something that is against his liberal values.

I posted a video of his about FOX News in this thread. It’s a network that he himself has had altercations with. That isn’t a problem. But at the same time he has attempted to also acknowledge that commentators like Tucker Carlson seem to be flag bearers for liberalism these days.

RB is great. He can be left if he wants to. That isn’t important, because he is a reasonable and critical thinking individual, many of the things he cares about, I do as well. I, like him, are a liberalist to the core.

In addition to all that, I have no issue at all to vote for Labor or Democrats or other so called left parties. I have done so on many occasions when they represented or tried to represent liberal values. Lately though, they haven’t. In the future, who knows, things may change. But I don’t vote for parties like a football fan.

Right now, I don’t vote at all in any country. I’m off the electoral rolls here in Australia and feel happy because I feel I am making a stand against anti liberal subversion,

It might surprise you but I support RB. I think he is great. And I feel he is honest and tries to explain things to his audience. Not to change anyone, but offer his perspective which is one that is easily agreeable.

You can post anything of his you like that lambast Trump. It’s still doesn’t change his standing with me because I can post material he made which has also been supportive of Trump because he is true to his liberal values. Especially when it comes to his censorship. For reasons such as this, we can only salute him and respect him.

In addition to RB, I listen to many podcasts made by left leaning contributors. I don’t put myself in an echo chamber.

There are many like him who are extremely reasonable and it’s important listening to all sides of the argument to make informed decisions.

Being left or right is meaningless these days.

It’s about liberal ideals and protecting our rights as individuals and there are plenty of pundits that do that on both sides.

I’ll give you an example. Tim Drayton is a self labelled leftie. But first and foremost, he is a liberal. I got no issue at all being his friend and listening to what he has to say. And i respect what he has to say. His values are agreeable to mine.

But even when they are not agreeable with other individuals it’s ok as long as they are respectful. Getting called every name under the sun isn’t the right thing to do.

The politics of the last few years have taken an even uglier turn especially when the so called left today don’t get their way. This is the antithesis to liberalism. It’s a lot closer to fascism as a matter of fact. That’s what I have a problem with. I have no issue with left parties or left leaning people. If the heart is in the right place, I feel happy and I would be supportive of them.

We had many labor governments in Australia that were awesome. If they made a comeback, I would support that. I voted for them too in the past. I would be delighted when politics the world over gets back to that maturity.

One of the political parties in Cyprus which I have a lot of time for and actually respect is in fact a socialist party. It’s a smaller one but I find myself in agreeance with their policies. That would be EDEK. I like them.

But it’s true I don’t like Communism or can ever support it or parties like AKEL which I genuinely dislike. Reason for this is that my liberal values are on a collision course with them. I’m a liberal. I believe in human rights and ultimate freedom of the citizenry where our politicians work for us and answer to us.

The other thing I oppose without any apology is fascism.

But left and right isn't a big issue for me at all, nor people who claim to be left or right.

Yes he is allowed to stand again because he didn't do anything illegal. he has the legal right to question and challenge election results.

But he doesn't have the legal right to not accept the result after the deliberations of courts etc etc. Which of course he did not do as he did hand over power.

But the good news for all of us is that trump is already on the campaign trail, and delivered a wonderful speech on Pheonix. Very inspirational and moving it was. Biden can't do speeches like that! In fact, I think he even forgets he is POTUS. :lol:

Trump has 2022 in his sights, then it's onwards to 2024.

And he has a great chance because you fools put in Biden who forgets where he lives. The last Q&A he did was a total laugh.

You guys are the gift that keep on giving! 8)

Of course I do.

Much more respect than you in fact. I have no issue with the loss of the election, but let me tell you, the way Biden is traveling, he is a one termer and you are potentially going to face another trump term from 2024.

Then we will see who has no respect for democracy, like you lot demonstrated between 2016 and 2020 and continue to demonstrate with your illegal censorship of a former US president.

On your bike fascist!

You guys think it's all well and good have a man in the WH without normal cognitive abilities to actually do the job. that's ok is it?
