I hate to say it but you sound a little bit like JLBB in that post. You're using a lot of exaggerations (as @blackg pointed out), so many that your point(s) get lost. You're also defining @Admin on the terms that are most favourable to you rather than making an effort to understand his position and why he arrived at conclusions distinct from your own.
I disagree guest 4 and I'll explain why.
We each are all individually responsible for our ideology, our party affiliation, our support of a specific candidate, and our vote. When I vote democrat this cycle, and I am voting democrat from the top of the ticket to the bottom of the ticket, I am affirming that the democratic PLATFORM and democratic POLICY IDEAS and the democratic CANDIDATES on the ballot are acceptable to me. I can't honestly claim later that the platform, or candidates, or policy ideas, I voted for or supported were unacceptable to me because I voted for and/or supported all of that stuff. When I support and/or vote for democrats to lead the US I'm affirming that I'm agreeable to the policy ideas, and platform, and candidates of the overall democratic party at this time. If I'm not agreeable enough to ANY
of the policy ideas, or platform, or candidates, I support or vote for, then it's on me not to support or vote for those policy ideas, platforms, or candidates. The same rules apply to Admin
This is ESPECIALLY TRUE in regards to POLICY IDEAS, CANDIDATES and PLATFORMS that hurt innocent people.
If I vote in a way that suppresses or oppresses harmless people then I'm responsible for suppressing or oppressing harmless people. So I don't do that. On the other hand, @Admin
supports the GOP and he especially supports Trump, and both Trump and the GOP suppress and oppress harmless people.
In some cases we have to hurt people by putting them in jail (or some other punishment) because those people hurt other people. But christian-right GOPers like Admin hurt people who aren't doing anything harmful to anyone. And christian-right GOPers don't hurt those harmless people because they have to hurt them. The christian-right GOPers hurt those harmless people because THEY WANT TO HURT THEM. It's evil to hurt harmless people for no good reason.
Admin will get his wake-up call that he's been an evil bastard while he was on Earth when he moves on from Earth and comes face-to-face with god (if god exists) and god SHARPLY demands an explanation from Admin for why Admin hurt harmless people while he was on Earth. And admin won't be talking to his evil supporters like WIRE, PAT, and JLBB in that moment. When that moment comes admin will be talking to god - the one true arbiter of ALL right & wrong. And when Admin hears the ANGER
in god's voice (when god is demanding an explanation from Admin for why Admin was trying to hurt harmless people on Earth) admin will realize that in god's view Admin's conduct on Earth was unacceptable, and in that moment admin will think to himself, "Uh oh".
