False "left - right" paradigm, bro. It's set up this way so you'll keep believing in it.

The left and right are total opposites until they talk about war or monetary policy. Then, suddenly there's no argument whatsoever. Remember when Obama and McCain were campaigning in '08? They didn't agree on anything until the banker bailout came along. Then they both gave almost identical speeches about it.

And only 3 days after 911, when congress voted for Authorization for Use of Military Force, there was only 1 single 'Nay' vote from the entire house and senate. Since that time, it has been used to bomb the shit out of people 37 times, yet not one single bomb was ever directed towards the (((country))) who masterminded and carried out the attack.

And voaters like to believe that republicans aren't into pizzagate shit, but they're the ones who go to bohemian grove every year and take part in a mock human sacrifice. And let's not forget the republican Lawrence King who took his group of underage male prostitutes on midnight trips to the Regan/Bush whitehouse.

TL;DR - The two political parties in the US are a false dichotomy.

I want to say that it was Ron Paul who voted "Nay" against the 9/11 bill, but I don't know for certain.

Ron Paul expressed regret for voting yes because it was so widely abused.

Actually it was Barbara Lee. Unfortunately, Ron Paul voted for it.

I have had a theory about this. The bigger a site gets, the more users it has. The more users it has, the more demographics there are. The more demographics, the higher the chance of offending someone. So the doubledown on political correctness and the rest of the process is pretty obvious from there.

Also, fuck the people downvoting you, this is a good question.

The same thing also happens within organizations or companies (such as those that run websites).

When it's a few guys anything goes. But once you hire a black guy there's no more conversations about race in the lunch room. Once you hire a woman the bikini posters have to come down and the swearing has to stop.. etc..

The bigger the organization, the more restrictions are placed on employees behaviour. People who are openly racist or sexist will often be forced out of larger organizations. Conversely people who openly support the "we all need to get along" narrative, will often do well and rise to positions of management.

I'm one of those "we all need to get along" faggots, but I think people shouldn't lose their job for having a prejudice either. As long as everyone works, idgaf what you think/believe.

The bigger you are, the bigger a target you become. Sue Reddit - the owners have lots of cash. You won't get a nickle out of this place, regardless of the verdict. There is no money here to go after.

To add to this, tech industry higher-ups are largely left-leaning, so the power structure that plays directly into hiring processes also leans left. As a result, opening leaning rightward while working at a place such as Google or Microsoft is like painting a giant target on yourself.

i do agree its a pretty good question. people are probably just downvoting because of the snooty (and somewhat douchebaggy) tone.

i wouldnt discount leftists inflating their "numbers" with bots and alt accounts to make it look like they have the majority opinion. they dont seem to realize that wrong is wrong regardless of popularity.

A few reasons:

  1. The powers that be (globalists, etc.) tend to support their own. I knew a gay dude who got a $500K interest free loan from a group gay business owners who wanted to create more gay owned businesses. Conservatives tend to give money to charities to help people and the left tends to give their money to push an agenda.

  2. To be at the top of any business requires some level of dishonesty, malevolence, and sociopathic tendencies. You simply don't get to the top without breaking a few laws, cheating a few business partners, lying about your product, etc. These characteristics tend to strongly correlate with the authoritarian socialists.

  3. The right tends to be less career oriented and more family oriented. This impacts both business and political activism. Angry lesbos have lots of time to protest while trad. housewives do not. Personally: I'm confident that if I had wanted to I could be in upper management at a fortune 500. But, I'd rather run a small business out of a home office ... which allows me to not have to travel and spend spend lots of time with my family. I've (and many others like me) make major sacrifices to put family first. I may not run the world, but my kids aren't monsters either. A fair trade in my opinion.

I think this is the best answer so far.

Also, I think another problem is HR: once a company gets big enough, its HR department gets more and more powerful and they (not the department bosses or supervisors) end up choosing who gets hired and who doesn't. And because they're getting paid by the hour, they don't really give a shit who they let in. On the other hand, when the owners of a small business themselves do the hiring, they're the ones paying for their salary, so they're more likely to hire based on merit rather than to fill quotas.

2 is nearly verbatim what i told my wife. "I'll never be rich. You've got to step on people to get to the top, and i won't do that."

3, congrats my man!!! You are living my dream. if i could pry a bit, could you point me in any direction towards a business that can be ran from a home office? Not trying to doxx you, please be vague if needed

ive been typing about this a lot today. i really REALLY want to start my own business. I have a bit of a pessimistic personality though, and here's how i see it:

businesses that have high barrier to entry cost too much for a poorfag like me.

businesses that have low barrier to entry are super saturated because poorfags like me are already doing it. (lawn care, etc)

Fair question. I have a fairly specific technical specialty. This allows me to be useful to the corporate players, even on a part time basis. Some of my best customers are my former employers ... just because I've always worked hard to treat other people well. Over the years, I've slowly grown my customer base and my number of employees.

About being poor: Right, it took 6+ months before I started receiving revenue. We lived VERY frugally for a long time to afford the opportunity. Financial Independence is key to having the personal freedom to do what you want with your life. I hate linking back to Reddit, but the sidebar to the right has excellent links / ideas on how to live frugally and save extreme amounts of money. https://www.reddit.com/r/financialindependence/

If you have a professional skill - that might be your best bet. If not then you are stuck doing a task that no-one wants to do.

My suggesting: 1. Don't spend $$ to buy into a franchise. They are too often bad deals.
2. Don't overlook the pool cleaning / lawn care / etc. business. There is always room for improvement. Find a niche that everyone else is failing to meet.
3. Do the job that no-one wants to do. You can be passionate about the strangest things. Mike Rowe has an extreme story about a guy who made lots of $$ by being the best septic company in the area. The dirtier / uglier the job then the less likely you will have competition in the market.

Oh, and 'being your own boss' just means that you have 100 bosses instead of 1. Running your own business is 50% more work and 50% more pain / headaches. It's worth it because I have extreme flexibility in my work schedule ... and I get to see my family more. But, it isn't just a simple walk in the park.

Good luck!

It's because the Left wants centralized control (the only way socialism works) and the Right believes in laissez faire.

Who funded and gave tech to Facebook, Twitter and Google? Shadow gov't actors and socialists.

Yes, and no. Generally speaking you're right, but the outliers and idealists think they can or need to try and make a change.

The right believes in unrestrained monopolies and public enclosure. If we let them have control we'd pay for the air we breathe.

Popularity and smartness have nothing to do with each other. Try again.

1)left infiltrate already successful businesses and turn them to shit then customers leave and left move to another successful platform

2) right are more tolerant (live and let live) people so they allow it to their own demise

Consider the source of the statistics, and consider the mentality of their customers. What does it mean to be popular? What does it mean to be a user of these services? Offering yourself up as feed stock to a chain mail glove worn by advertisers? Offering up your identity, your habits, and your true name to search engines and video games? Who does that? Who obeys decades of institutionalization and takes up the calling to weaponize non-existent offense, so that one's own rotted ego remains safe? Who participates in these absurd phenomena?

Who are these aliens among us?

The aliens start using this technology around 8-10 years old. After that their lives are lost and they have no idea. Everything they know comes out of a little box they carry everywhere they go. From observing the species I notice the phenomena extends to those well into their thirties. Those of us who didn't grow up as aliens were spared life in the box.

We can’t get funding. Also, the Left is doing everything it can to shut down our endeavors, including those in (((financial institutions))), so we can’t pursue grassroots means of establishment either.

Hatreon and Goyfundme, our crowdfunding platforms, were shut down by finance Jews.

We have the personal funds and talent, but we can’t move the money around and we can’t use our ability. We are living in a nation filled with a hostile occupation force determined to constrict and eliminate our freedoms.

They will not win, however. The harder they squeeze, the more meaning it has when each word slips by.
