I would think....assuming here... living in California that you see some chit that I never do.   

So I would agree.... probably underestimate the number of true fanatics.

I personally have faith in humans on a grand scale otherwise we'd be extinct by now. I also believe there are some really smart politicians out there just like there is in any field.

Lol. Dude, I can promise you that us not beong extinct has NOTHING to do w/ human decency or amything we’ve done. We just have a crap ton of sex & don’t have another species actively hunting us.

While you and I probably don't see eye to eye on everything I bet all of your beliefs would make sense to me. I would understand your pov.
As yours would to me as well

We could work compromises. Honestly, there are only a few things that I stand firmly on. I would think most non pos people would be firm on those same things. The rest of it is just details that I am willing to waiver on to gain a little from something you can waiver on. Why doesn't politics work like that? Money. Plain and simple.
Yeah, I would like to think most politicians could get to a common ground for the people. I wonder if there was a way to make them be more centrist/ independent

Its the media that pits us against one another, adds fuel to the fire. Someone said it earlier and I am in full agreement. People can get so inflamed and fail to see another's pov

We need a true independent party, people that can compromise and work together.
If that cant happen I am all for a balance of power.
back through time during our most prosperous times was repub. house and senate with most of the  time a dem president. Nothing kookie got through, and they had to work together.

I don't like when one party controls all 3 (house senate president) with a rare exception

Some dems like to point out this is Obamas economy and it started trending upward the last few years of his presidency. House and senate was republicans.
When he first came into office the dems controlled house and senate and some kookie stuff got through and the economy continued toi slide from the bush era, (senate and house democrat.

Maybe I just like the house and senate to be repubs and a Democrat pres. ecnomy seems to like republican house and senate regardless of pres.

I would hope some good solid independents come in. start an avalanche.

So where do we start

I believe in only 2 genders.
I go along w any number off genders, but only 2 sexes.

It bugs me that all the forms & surveys ask for my gender when what they really want is my sex.

In French & Spanish, the word for "key" is feminine, & the word for "lock" is masculine.  That's gender.  Nothing to do w sex, as a key resembles a penis, while a lock resembles a vagina.

But when it comes to animals, penises are male, vaginas are female.  That's sex.  Sure, there are a few ambiguous cases, but this is the general criterion.  You can have your own opinions about sex, but not your own facts.

The idea that someone is "the wrong gender" (meaning "sex") is a pernicious one.  I hope it's a passing fad.  A friend of mine's teenage daughter now identifies as male.  That's her opinion; it doesn't change the fact, and having an opinion obviously contrary to fact is going to be detrimental in this case.

Why can't boys just like girl stuff & vice versa?  That doesn't make them "the wrong" sex or gender, it just shows statistics aren't everything.  Thinking one is identified wrongly because one goes against what's typical for one's sex is not liberating; rather, it's knuckling under to the sex stereotypes that I thought we wanted to get past.  Feh.
