Isn’t what is going on right now in Minneapolis. Just tell us how easy it is for violence to begin? This is a devastating this is sickening that people act like this. The officer should go to prison for murder but there shouldn’t be looting and fires set and people acting like this. So with all that said if this happen why would it be hard to believe a civil war could happen? If anything this just continues to show how shaky the United States are any issue people don’t like sets people off to act in despicable ways. This will not get better it’s only gonna get worse unfortunately and it’s sad!

What does this mean? You wouldn't blame people for killing their neighbors?
I wouldn’t blame people for defending there freedom. I don’t think there neighbor will be taking there right and freedom away.

The president is advocating violence against those he disagrees with politically. If you are still supporting him, it's hard to interpret that as anything other than advocating violence against the same, including other members on this site.
Some of you need to take a moment or two and think about what your support is enabling and what it is a reflection of in yourself.
That’s your opinion I’m apologize if you think I support violence. But I do not support violence. I believe in freedom and rights. I believe if a government official knocks on your door to take your guns people should defend there right to bare arms. But that’s not supporting violence it’s defending your freedom and your rights. That’s just my opinion of course. And you have the right to your own personal opinion as you clearly stated

Totally 100% agree. It was murder and these cops especially one with knee on his neck should be in prison rest of his life. Personally eye for an eye is preferred but that’s not way our system works.
I personally think the cop that placed his knee on George's neck should hang from a tree until dead, and the other cops should sit in prison for the rest of their lives for being accomplices to murder, IF, after all of the evidence brought to trial, and the jury finds them guilty. It looks like there is a lot of incriminating evidence, too. I would hope they have a speedy trial and sentencing.

Also, all of the rioters and thieves need to be rounded up and likewise charged for their crimes. Here is a legitimate use for the national guard. They need to declare martial law in some of these localities and start shooting looters on sight. It will quickly come to an end if they do so.

I get you. I don't think socialism will cause a civil war. For one thing, it won't be like we go to bed one night under capitalism and wake up the next morning under socialism. And for another thing, if we were to have a civil war, it would be because a huge amount of the population was being actively persecuted or actively oppressed. It would be a far more active invasion than an intrusion of political ideology and message board divisions and rogue cops. Now, we may get there one day, but it won't be soon.
In one sense we have slowing been becoming socialist or some capitalist/socialist hybrid for the last century or so. The Fabian socialists made it their aim to slowly implement socialism by taking control of the western educational institutions. That has by and large been accomplished.

In my view, it's only a matter of time before we become completely socialist in the mold of western European nations. It will probably happen when the Democrats regain control of both houses of congress and the White House--which could be very soon. My fear all along with a Trump presidency is that he would so damage the Republican party that the pendulum would swing radically in the other direction.

Yep people so damn determined to win the battle they fail to see it loses the war......still the blame is at the peoples fault we keep letting the extreme fringe run the parties and give voices to nitwits like Trump....luckily I am not fatalistic about this, I think there will be a NEEDED balance between socialism and capitalism, in order to survive the US needs both.....its up to the American people to reign in both sides and keep the country on the right course.

The minimum wage, maximum hour, and labor laws. The fact that government intervenes in the capitalist market to require employers to meet minimum standards. Agricultural and energy subsidies are socialist programs. There is a long list.

So you are saying to let employers pick what they want to pay? Please go into the agriculture and energy that you want changed.

Maybe I misunderstood your question. My point like downeast said, is we are already a hybrid of capitalism and socialism.

If this is true it’s time to call in the national guard by that governor. The man has been arrested and charged.

This is not the president promoting violence. He is saying don’t break the law or you may get shot. But that’s the case with everything you rob a bank you run you may get shot it’s called law and order don’t break the law!

Based on previous tweets, sentence structures, rambling nature of his tweets it does not seem to fit. No breaking out all caps, no blaming someone or the media for something random.
Yeah, syntax matters and is a dead give away. He is not that literate. Damage control 101.
