    I know you're describing what the Republicans do. Fox News, which is the media arm of the Republican party, does this all time, with deceptive editing, half-truths and facts that are woefully out of context and misleading. They specialize in maintaining outrage, name-calling, and demonization of Democrats. Look at this thread: from the title to the content it is pure demonization, not a reasonable thought in sight. I would also say that you need to define "they" and use specific examples instead of making sweeping generalizations and acting like your Democratic neighbor is your enemy.

    Chocolate rations will be reduced to 20 grammes per week.

    Before, there had been an increase to 20 grammes per week.

    That's because it comes from both sides, Democrats and Republicans. To be honest, the left-wing and the right-wing are part of the same bird, and they're both sorry SOBs. Both are morally and politically corrupt to their core, and we pick our poison ("red poison" or "blue poison"). There's no point in pretending that one of these two parties is more moral than the other. Both parties are filled with greedy, self-centered liars who stab us all in the back while they smile at us. If they're moving their lips, then that means they're lying.

    Hard to believe that at one time in the past, they were actually one political party.

    Bs. Especially in light of the fact that the entrenched Democrats run and rule over the most authoritarian and restricted states with the worst record of personal and economic freedoms in the entire country.

    Democrats are not your friends. That's for sure.

    I guess the only way to find out for sure is to actually see this in action.

    Also with Regan. I still remember all the flak Nancy got as the first lady president. The problem was it got hushed up until Regan left office.

    Again, go live in Russia for awhile so you can learn what authoritarianism is, because clearly you have no idea. You have no idea what restricting personal freedom really is.

    I live in California, a place you claim is authoritarian. But where? I'm free to vote, free to change jobs and get training or education whenever I want. And because weed is legal here I gained that. Really, pretty much everything I did in Indiana it's legal for me to do here, and California doesn't even tell me I can't buy alcohol on Sundays.
    Go live in Russia for awhile.

    The nanny state that dictates just about everything a person can do or say. It destroys the quality of life and the joys of living and choice.

    People are forced to live a heavily regulated life by the state and are taxed and fee'd to death as well.

    Democrats see people as cattle. Penned in and and milked for all they are worth.

    Authoritarianism comes in many forms and the Democrats lead in the states with the least economic and personal freedoms in the entire nation.

    Threat of left wing authoritarianism.....

    Democrats are authoritarian and are not your friends.

    All you've done is rant and post an anti-liberal propaganda paper. Who are the people who contributed and wrote the paper? What's their political affiliation? What kind of credibility do the authors of the paper have? Why should anyone believe what's written in this paper? And for the record, you didn't post any specific examples in your post. Please post some verifiable examples and statistics that substantiate the accusations in your post. I'm not going to immediately believe your accusation or accept the source you post at face value post just because you think it backs your argument. Let's see some specific examples and statistics that verify your accusations.

    Um... it's an abstract from a peer reviewed paper. (SIPS)

    https://improvingpsych.org/

    Did you even bother to read the link instead of ranting and posting under assumptions it's an anti liberal propaganda paper?

    No, I didn't read all 47 pages. Have you? And your reply doesn't answer my questions as to why I should read the paper and take its content into consideration. Have you read all 47 pages? If you've read the paper from start to finish, then please post some specific examples of why you agree with its content. If you haven't read the paper, then why did you post it? I'd still like to see a few verifiable examples and statistics that substantiate the accusations in your other post. Surely you have specific examples that you can post.

    Well abstracts happen to be long in general. At least in theory in light of these days.

    There's no need for specifics as it's all there anyways and duplicating them would be a redundant waste of time.

    If your not willing or able it's not my problem in this case.

    In summary, those with authoritarian minds tend to lead to authoritarian policy.

    Democrats tend to have authoritarian minds in a larger extent, as they do nothing but tell people how to live, what's good for them, and what to say and not to say, what they can and cannot eat, what they can and cannot wear, by their standards usually in context or for the children, or in the name of health and safety.

    So, you haven't read the paper yourself, but you expect me to read it, or at least accept it as viable evidence of your argument against Democrats. Well, that's not helping. Why would backing yourself up be a waste of time? Don't you want to be taken seriously? Since you're not willing to post specifics, then I suppose it's fair for me to assume that you've got nothing and you're just blowing hot air.

    That's fine as it's your opinion. I've provided a link by professionals.

    My own words wouldn't mean anything to people like you anyways. Even with the fact that I live by example, in one of the most authoritarian states in the nation.

    Democrats are authoritarian.

    Well, since you're not willing to back up your argument against the Democrats, then I have no reason whatsoever to accept your accusation as true. And anyone else who disagrees with you doesn't have any reason to accept your accusation as true either.
