There are some really intelligent responses here. Obviously, everyone has their own opinions, but reading different people's perspective gives us food for thought. I would even argue that many of the opposing opinions are all accurate. That's what makes this so complex. There are so many factors to consider; so much at play here. Even when one statement seems completely truthful, the exact opposite belief can be as equally truthful. I particularly appreciate the poster who commented on the contributing factors of "absolutism". I find myself frustrated with both sides in their inability (or unwillingness) to avoid viewing the other through a narrow prism. I find myself defending my friends to my other friends, and then defending those friends to the other side back again. It would be easier to see things so definitively. I'm sure it's more comfortable to be so firmly anchored on one side. I just don't think it's productive in bringing progress. We need to keep our eyes on the desired end result and find our best path toward it.

  • As an Australian, I like that he has decided to not accept the Presidential salary. Our own Prime Minister is a millionaire in his own right... -- pp, 12:34:11 11/15/16 Tue
  • I agree whole-heartedly with your sentiment of not understanding the rioting in the street mentality from either side.-- -- anon, 13:29:36 11/15/16 Tue
  • A large part of the rioting in the streets is bc (NT) -- He lost the popular vote, but still "won" the election :(, 14:56:01 11/15/16 Tue
