Skip to comments.American Society and the Stretched Rubber Band
Posted on 12/27/2019 7:06:06 AM PST by Kaslin
Despite America's ingenious system of government that allows for all viewpoints to have a voice and seek representation, people's tolerances of one another and of government today are being stretched to the limit just like a rubber band about to snap.
If we imagine the entire population of America contained in a giant rubber band resting on a table of ideas, this analogy begins to make sense. A rubber band, in its natural state, is unstretched, with zero stored energy. We can view this state as the status quo in American society. In this scenario, those who have the most political and ideological influence congregate in the middle of the rubber band.
Many groups have found their home here. In terms of political orientation, these are the people in the center-right and center-left; in terms of class, these are white-collar workers, including those on Wall Street, corporate lobbyists, and most politicians; and, in terms of our institutions, these are the news media, union organizations, and the two major political parties. Flying under the radar of the masses, these groups wield enormous political power in a cozy system, in which one side receives political favoritism and the other reaps the cash.
Even in its unstretched state, the rubber band still moves gradually over time, largely unnoticeable in the present moment. This happens when frontiersmen, a minority of the population that settles not in the middle, but rather on the rubber band's boundaries, make small, incremental changes that influence policy and usher a society into its future generations.
Throughout American history, these people have been rebellious American colonists, abolitionists, communists, civil rights activists, hippies, feminists, etc. all of whom, at some point in time, were considered extremists.

Short version: Kill them before they kill you.
Trump is in the process of pulling minorities on the left - and LEGAL immigrants - back into the center. That might relieve the tension just enough to allow the center to hold... While allowing real change to take place...
I read the instructions.
1) Stretch rubber band,
2) wrap around a socialist, liberal fascist Trump Derangemnent Syndrome idiot’s neck.
3) Pull till all motion ceases.
>>Throughout American history, these people have been rebellious American colonists, abolitionists, communists, civil rights activists, hippies, feminists, etc. all of whom, at some point in time, were considered extremists.
The radical Marxist dyke who founded NOW (Kate Millett) WAS an extremist (and mentally institutionalized on several occasions after her rise to fame). Her stated goal was to destroy the American family and she accomplished that end. Her book Sexual Politics is still taught in Women’s Studies classes.
The Weathermen Communist terrorist group WERE extremists who killed people and robbed banks and bombed the Pentagon. The bomber became the man who groomed Barack Obama’s path to the White House and sits high in academia along with other members of the Weathermen.
The same crap we are hearing today is from those same exact radical Red Diaper doper baby Marxists of the 1960s. They want their revolution before they die of old age.
Bill Ayers positioned that when they have their revolution, they’d need to kill at least 25,000,000 Americans who couldn’t be politically re-educated to sufficiently embrace Communism.
Our great and wonderful president Donald J Trump has it right
build a movement
Keep it going keep watering it
Keep building it up keep embellishing it keep bringing in new people in to the movement
This great movement is pro America.
If you want to try to oppose this great movement youre against this great nation and its founding its constitution and you will be overwhelmed by those that love this country
We will not need to shoot you - we will just humiliate you
If you try illegal tactics we will put you in jail
Are you communist and leftists - your media has been exposed
Ditto your deep state actors have been exposed
We are watching - waiting - biding our time - we are patriots - we are strong we are heavily armed - but we are kind - fortunately for you!
2020 is but a few days away and will be a momentous year for the United States of America!
Fear not the loser stupid moronic leftists in the demoncrap party
Waters man on the street segment is eye opening at the across the board stupidity of many Americans
