I think the argument is BS.

What's subversive is how partisan politics have isolated the moderate majority. The concept of 'democracy' being an expression of majority opinion has been subverted into an either/or system.

We're led to believe that the 'other side' is incapable of acting in the public interest.

Isn't it more likely normal people have a political middle ground where left/right intermingle and our differences are outweighed by the values we share?




Maybe you should stop and think about not having labels for a bit. It isn't a "dirty" thing.

Yes, a Log Cabin Republican.

There are always exceptions, but those don't detract from the overwhelming majority.

You don't point at a unicorn and claim that there are a lot more horses with horns.


I'm not really sure what your point is.

You can't deny that most liberals are white either. The simple fact of numbers makes this the truth. Roughly 70% of the US population is white, so by default, you will end up with more of them NO MATTER WHAT your personal "side" happens to be.

Says you? White people are taught to feel guilty about being white from a young age.


Errrmmmm......only if their teachers (including parents) tell them to feel guilty. Lots of those same people teach from a young age that EVERYONE is supposed to feel guilty about WHATEVER -----

it doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, how old you are, what you've been through - those people want you to feel guilty about every minute of it. Until the moment you die. Feel guilty because you are a piece of trash and lucky to get a single crumb.



GUILT is what they feed on......
it's sickening psyops - been going on for millennia.

Incorrect.

ABSOLUTELY false. The US population total demographics has nothing to do with party affiliated voters.

Consider yourself schooled:

Such much nope that here's a second helping!


You know what makes the MOST difference?
EDUCATION!!!!

yuppers! most liberals are well educated and highly educated.
MORE well educated and highly educated people are liberals.
Quality education and Higher education are positively correlated with liberal views.
Fact.



Here's another little treat for you, dear heart:

A Wider Ideological Gap Between More and Less Educated Adults
4-22-2016


Two years ago, Pew Research Center found that Republicans and Democrats were more divided along ideological lines than at any point in the previous two decades. But growing ideological distance is not confined to partisanship. There are also growing ideological divisions along educational and generational lines.

Highly educated adults – particularly those who have attended graduate school – are far more likely than those with less education to take predominantly liberal positions across a range of political values. And these differences have increased over the past two decades.


JUST WATCH, YOU GUYS....I predict that the assault on higher education and public schooling will start in

There's a better question.

Can you be a conservative in the USA without letting yourself be brainwashed by conservative media? I'm not just talking about a conservative viewpoint on the economy like you might get in the Wall Street Journal or listing to the "News" on Fox news. That's all good.

It's when you listen to the pundits and experts in the right wing media. A true conservative isn't swayed by whiny, hateful fake experts. Like anyone on Talk Radio or Fox news (ie O'Reilly Hannity etc)

Can you be a conservative and not consume propaganda?
