Border security = racist
Nationalism = unpatriotic
Christianity = homophobic
Islam = A okay
Male masculinity = toxic
Women adopting masculine traits = progress
Families over career = sexist
Career over family = progress
Gender = Social Construct
Truth = "My Truth"
Beauty = Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner
Slut walk = Progress



What is the problem? How do you exist believing all of these things at the same time? :confused:

IMO the left would have no power if it wasn't for the media, key reason, they don't want kids, so their numbers dwindle every year. Couple that with the medias loss of power with their constructed and disingenuous narratives, and the emergence of the internet, it may really be over. Unless they start fighting with ideas instead of censorship.

If I asked Michael Moore to describe conservative beliefs, how accurate a picture do you believe he would paint?

Michael Moore is so far gone, i can't imagine. He really thinks he can change things with his movies, as if people aren't on to him. Its insane.

That’s it. Tell me what I believe. Then attack me for believing it. A tidy logic.

Want me to rant on how conservatives are racist, worship money, couldn’t care less about the environment, love torture, and believe America can do no wrong, and whose **** doesn’t stink?

I'm not angry, the left isn't being logical, everyone can see it, and its why they are losing.

But, you fail to see that your judging is all about you. Others differ.

Your post is just full of anger, and it is pure hyperbolic twaddle.

You people really do live in your own little world.

FFS, you just lost 40 House seats and a **** load of govenorships, yet you're going on as if you're still winning elections and it didn't happen.

If anything, 56% of the public has had their fill of the right for a long time.

Everybody is a little racist, if you think Asians are generally better at math and logic, and a school makes it harder for them to be accepted, that's a little racist (Harvard), if you think black people are generally better at football or basketball, that's a little racist (but true), not all racism is equal.

Conservatives don't necessarily worship money, Bezos is the richest person in the world and tries to pay his laborers the least amount as possible, he also owns the Washington post, so there that. Choosing family over a career inherently reduces your income potential, and yet conservatives generally have no problem with that trade off.

As far as torture, Hillary Clinton is on film laughing about murdering Gadaffi. Barrack Obama dropped more bombs than any president before him, and most torture goes unreported so to suggest that's a right thing is flat out silly. So yes, please tell what i wrote that you don't agree with.

American isn't perfect by any means, no country is.

So...you have issues with women having a brain, you have issues with anyone criticizing your religion, you are really frightened about your masculinity, you can't handle other religions, and you have some serious issues about your sexuality.

I'd expect this from some stereotype Archie Bunker from the 60's. Sorry that the world progressed to a better place and left you behind.

Do you even have any Lefty friends, or associates? It doesn't appear so.

So you saw none of the reports the stated that its normal for a new administration to lose house seats? But its not normal for that same administration to gain senate seats, which they did. The right is not just winning, they are winning against the odds, i think because of the internet. And its not just here, its worldwide, so i think you that is living in your own little world. Also i'm sure the right won all the significant governor seats, FL and what not.

Your might benefit from studying political ideology and pursuing knowledge-based opinions. I have included another prior post and a link to a Political Compass Thread to assist you. Peace to you and yours!


https://www.debatepolitics.com/general-political-discussion/123332-political-compass-thread.html


To help those of you confused over differences between Liberals and Conservatives, I have provided a brief description of both.

Liberals:
-tip generously, wait longer between haircuts and lawn cuts, take life in stride, help strangers, put others ahead of themselves, spew love and peace, smile a lot, have an optimistic and inclusive attitude, make hard work look easy, and focus on the common welfare for the benefit of the most people.

Conservatives, on the other hand:
- have a stingy and judgmental nature, insist on conformity, focus on criticizing other people's values instead of their own, show strangers disdain, glorify themselves, spew hate and discord, frown a lot, have a pessimistic and exclusionary attitude, a sense of entitlement and couldn't give a rat's ass about the common welfare.

No, did i say i have issues with women having a brain? Did i say i have a problem with someone questioning my religion? Not frightened with my masculinity, all religions are fine by me, i think the world is great right now, the left are the ones acting as if it is not.

My point is how can you believe all the things i suggested at the same time? There are so many contradictions.

The right had the very best Senate map of any political party in decades, yet they only managed to win three deep red seats they never should have lost, while Democrats flipped three light red seats.

And all of the governorships are significant. I just love how you guys try to spin anything, even in the face of the numbers.

You. Are. The. Delusional ones.

Have you considered that this caricature of a liberal you've invented isn't actually reflective of reality?

Brazil, Trudeau is about to be out, Merkel is about to be out, Macron is about to be out. Do you need more references?

By these definitions, i am a liberal, which is why i am so confused. Logic seems to escape the liberals though.

Get back to me with your results from the Political Compass Test.

The upside of your attitude, IMO, gives me hope you might support pragmatic solutions derived through common interest and bipartisanship.

No, I've been witnessing a lot over the past two years, and now its getting worse. In my experience, liberals are live and let live kind of people, so am I. But there is a difference between liberals and the left. Not all liberals are on the left, but everyone on the left is a liberal, so the crossover is significant. I don't care what you prefer or who you worship, as long as it doesn't impact me. But the left is literally distorting reality, and trying to control speech. America is the only country left where you can say whatever you want and can't be fined or imprisoned for it, just banned from a website. Do you not think that's something to be concerned with?
