www.wikipedia.com...


Wikipedia is a multilingual, Web-based, free-content encyclopedia project based mostly on anonymous contributions.


www.conservapedia.com...


Conservapedia is a clean and concise resource for those seeking the truth. We do not allow liberal bias to deceive and distort here.


So....

I'm just putting out there that the conservatives on ATS can also do this, and then live in peace. No more intolerable libs to constantly deal with, no more atheists or gays. It could be a good thing for all involved. Over the last few weeks I have seen an exponential increase of tension on ATS driven by differences in religious and political ideology. When conservatives on wikipedia became overwhelmed by this they took it upon themselves to form conservapedia. I am floating this concept in hopes an enterprising conservative on ATS wants to run with it and create a conservATS of sorts. America is split and so is ATS, time for groups to go their separate ways. THERE CAN BE NO PEACE, everyone knows it's way beyond that now. I am suggesting the religious right create a new forum since they are the minority here. I'm sure this will get flamed, but I am also sure that many hope it happens.

What do atheists and homosexuals have to do with anything?

I think the only way to any political progress -- U.S. or anywhere else -- is if the parties are forced to sit down, talk to each other, and their pay/benefits withheld until they reach a resolution.

They seem to like toying with our money, let their own be affected as well.

In regard to conservatives & liberals in the population... I think most of us tend to want to cubbyhole people into neat little packages of ideals, and separatism is not useful, as it reinforces those lables. Why not advocate different states being designated as areas for specific political affiliations? I think that's the opposite of what's needed.

Of course, getting people to really communicate and reach a resolution that is the best solution for the majority of a nation -- that's a sweet dream, huh?

Interesting thread

Ha Ha Ha the truth according to the right wing is very humorous.

Iraq had WMD

GWB was a very articulate bright fellow.

And Sarah Palin will save us all from ourselves.......




I would rather not encourage a forum of this kind

Saddam is or was a terrorist, a weapon of mass destruction


Saddam Hussain, a nuke from beyond the grave!!!!

When debate is tossed aside and only one political ideology is allowed, growth is no longer an option. What results is an autocracy where all the power rests in the hands of one.

As ALL the power shifts to one political party, the typical response is elevated intolerance and then laws are inacted to provide the means towards the elimination of all that disagree (or even remotely seem to). Lenin, Pol Pot, Hitler and Mao are excellent examples of autocracies in action.

In religions, the same applies. When one (Islam, the Vatican, Atheism) is given ALL the power, then the purges begin in the attempt to eradicate all the others.


I am floating this concept in hopes an enterprising conservative on ATS wants to run with it and create a conservATS of sorts. America is split and so is ATS, time for groups to go their separate ways.


Two things; first, ATS is not just America, it is multinational in its membership. Second, should groups 'go their seperate ways', it would spell the end of all debate and, imo, be a hugely backward step in regards to all this website stands for.


THERE CAN BE NO PEACE, everyone knows it's way beyond that now. I am suggesting the religious right create a new forum since they are the minority here. I'm sure this will get flamed, but I am also sure that many hope it happens.


What should we call this new forum? How about the C Street Double Plus Good?

I couldn't agree with the OP more (about the political thing al least) That is why we have started the "Klobuchar Revolution". Remember the name. It is becoming clear that ATS is going more and more political every day, so if you see a thread that has no business on ATS, but is thriving with political banter simply start talking about how great Amy Klobuchar is (she is a randomly selected official from Minnesota). If anyone disagrees with you call them an angry Lib (the beauty in this is that she is a democrat)

So if you are annoyed by the no conspiracy political threads, join the Klobuchar Revolution.

-E-

I agree with the OP. Its clear to me that conservatives live in their own exclusive reality. How else can it be explained that Obama is labeled a communist-nazi-muslim-socialist-fascist by them unless their train of thought is completely separate from the rest of the world?

If conservatives want to wall themselves off from more liberal opinions let them do so.

However I do feel there are already several highly conservative conspiracy theory biased websites and forums out there. World Net Daily, Fox News, Weekly Standard, Red State, Hot Air, Free Republic, and many others espouse new Obama and other anti-liberal conspiracy theories on a daily basis. If you want to read about Obama faking his birth certificate, trying to institute "death panels", or claims of Obama trying to create another 9/11 to give the USA a communist makeover, mainstream conservative websites already have this all covered.

As far as I know the motto of ATS is “deny ignorance”. It is the exact opposite to the willfully exclusion of inconvenient opinions and facts, which differ from your own world view. Wikipedia presents the common consensus. In its articles, there is little room for alternative points of view. Conservapedia takes this even one step further. The correct motto for that site would be “embrace ignorance”.

A stubborn, unteachable mindset is not only found in conservative people. If someone is absolutely unable or unwilling to listen to other people opinions, he can always choose to click the ignore button.

Bah, who cares about the so called "conservatives" anymore. Their power is waning coz the young ones don't seem to want to join any of them. It's just not hip to become such a one. And it ain't pop either.

So what you're saying is you want ATS to be a bunch of people sitting around saying "Dude, you are so right" to each other all the time, all day long? Wow...that's sure exciting...not.

As for them being the minority, I wouldn't be too sure about that. Many of them don't wear their beliefs on their sleeves. Some do, to be sure, others do not. ATS is as diverse a crowd as there is anywhere on the 'net, why the hell would you want that to change? Hmmm...? Methinks, you ought to think about that.
