They are relative to one another for sure, but I think your kinda leaving out their base definitions from the equation.

Conservative= traditions > change

Progressive = change > traditions..


So that doesn’t mean every idea the left has is a good idea...but it does mean that every good idea will come out of the left.

When you factor that in I think that makes my “liberal last generation, is conservative this generation theory..

Don't get fooled. He is probably expecting Obama to raise him from the dead. Oh, my bad, some of you are still infected with the Kool-aid and didn't make the connection that B.O claiming himself to be HOPE is in fact claiming himself to be JESUS CHRIST.

Umm, you're confusing me, man. You stated the exact opposite in the post I replied to (this post):


I think what it really is is that what was conservative last generation , is liberal this generation..



A generation ago the conservatives position was that interracial marriage should be illegal, and the liberal positions was “it should be legal, but it’s not for me”.

This generation conservatives think it should be legal , but it’s not for me and liberals think it is perfectly normal..

I think it's been said that the parties have changed over time. Reagan would be considered liberal today. A bit of a stretch but has some merit imo.

So McCain wants Obama to join Dubya Bush in giving eulogies at his funeral because he thinks that Obama is a necromancer and the reincarnation of the Prophet Jesus. Right...

My bad I said it backwards lol..


What is liberal this generation will be conservative next generation..


The reason it always works that way is because ALL the new ideas come from the left..


Good and bad, but the good ideas stuck and the bad ideas are discarded..

On the macro level..


At the same time you have the pendulum swing of revolution and counter revolution.


For example Slavery is abolished in a revolution where countless things are improved . Then there is a counter revelation (the KKK) by those unhappy with that change that undoes most, but not all of the progress made during the revolution..


Then there was the revolution (civil rights) then there was the counter revolution to it that undoes half of the civil rights act..


Wash rinse , repeat...


But oh so slowly moving forward..

Only because this batch of republicans claim everyone not as conservative as Sean Hannity or anyone who doesn’t buy their crackpot conspiracy theories a “liberal”...


The black panthers and antifa are “liberals” when neither supports the DNC or hillary Clinton..


They consider everyone not on their team “the left”...

At least moderates and liberals realize there are a thousand factions all in compitition.. rather than just 2..

McCain probably doesn't even know who Obama is anymore. It's probably some liberal staffer working in his camp that keeps putting out these nonsense statements. Has anyone bothered to validate these statements or are we all just taking the messengers word for it?

You might want to double check your facts. It was the Black Panthers who were at the poll locations bullying and threatening physical harm to people if they didn't vote for Obama and then Hillary.

True liberals are amazing individuals who fight tooth-and-nail for individual liberties, maximum freedom, self-determination, promote civil rights and advocate for human rights.

The folks most of us are railing against are not true liberals. The "new liberals" are just socialist authoritarian statists in disguise.

Republicans were the party of Lincoln that freed the slaves and Nixon founded the EPA. LBJ put Japanese and some German Americans in concentration camps and JFK was a huge proponent of what became known as supply-side economics (AKA Reaganomics) advocating for major tax cuts, lower regulations, and low inflation.

...and the left (mostly liberals, but the "left" in general) DOES have a lot of GREAT ideas. There is no denying that. But they also have some ridiculous and far-fetched ideas. Most are predicated on wishful thinking (which isn't always bad, like you said new ideas and all) and some are based on malicious intent (or revenge, jealousy, etc)

It is the very last category I have a problem with. But wide and far that doesn't represent *all* on the left. IMO, "liberals" are good folks with a differing opinion (on some issues). It is the radicals I take extreme issue with, and are exclusively the group I refer to when mistakenly saying "liberals"

Thank you for pointing this out though JC

I'd just like to point out that an idea doesn't have to be "new" to be good or worthwhile. Protecting every single Constitutional right, for instance, is one of the oldest but most respectable ideas/goals.

Obama was only a socialist who undermined the country in right wing world.. in the real world he was a very , very moderate politician.


I sure wish y’all wouldn’t take the accusations of someone’s political opponents as proof of what they want to do..

Obviously the political opponents are going to lie..

They don’t only have some good ideas ..


They have EVERY new idea. Period..

Whenever the right says they want to change something.they ALWAYS vouch it in returning to some bygone era..they never say they have a new way that will be more efficient.


The “ radical left” are basically nonexistent..


That is why the right wing media is forced to go find random college kids or other nobodies as “proof” the left wants to do X, Y or Z..

Because no elected democrats or heads of big groups are saying that..

However , the extreme right wing position is fairly mainstream amongst the right..



No one thinks abortion should be legal until the 9th month.. no one..


PLENTY of republicans think it should be illegal in all cases..


No one on the left thinks the government should go house to house taking a the guns..


However , the right thinks we shouldn’t even have a registry, because “they are comming to get your guns..


Every single issue that is commonly debated., no one is even on the far left side.. well not enough to make up a voting block..

They have to fabricate a bad guy where none exists..


WHY??

Because they never have any new ideas.. so all that leaves is demogoging..

Just for the record, there have been 12 new Amendments/changes to the US Constitution since 1913, including the 27th Amendment in 1992. So even that requires & receives updating.

Well DJT wasn't exactly kind to the old man in life, calling him a loser for getting captured, while "his" claim to fame during that era was dodging the clap and managing difficulties like bone spurs..


I thought the leftist dorks loved the draft dodgers? For pretty much my whole life leftist maggots have celebrated the ones who ran to Canada or Mexico or said they were gay.

So you guys don't like draft dodgers now? Are you going to disavow Jane Fonda and all the rest? Or is Trump the only one that is bad for doing it?

I don't get it. You lunatics need to get your "hate" list updated and sorted out. You guys are all over the place these days.

Maybe I'm a dork, that's subjective tho and one day I'll be turned into a bag o maggots if my family don't opt for cremation..and I'm a lib..well according to the majority of my views anyway.

Here is what I am, a vet of desert storm and other hotspots and not a draftee , but a volunteer in a free sign up military, my choice, draft took agency from ppl who did not believe in the Vietnam war, your man Trump boasted of his orgies at the sametime sighting bone spurs, only yrs later to sht on a man who did go to war got tortured, a man who because of who his father was , was offered a chance to go home, but refused because other POWs would remained.

DJT was not an anti Vietnam war dude objecting, he is no Muhammad Ali, he is a super privileged coward who is now a war hawk with other ppl's young folk, let's not forget he stiffed vets with his phony azz.
Note I'm not a big fan of McCain but I can at least respect the man.

This tired old argument. Look the republican party is not that same party and have veered off that path at some point in the past.

The party that exists today is is more like what the democrats were in the past.

Donald Trump Calls Sleeping Around, Avoiding STDs His ‘Personal Vietnam’ in Resurfaced 1997 Interview





“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world,” Trump told Stern of avoiding STDs. “It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam era. It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” (Trump)
