Well ya know I'm 25. I'm young.
None of you guys have it all right. Like if one had to "follow", i would follow something similiar to what you say. However, the only burden i hold upon myself is that which demands "learn", over "follow".
I'm going to assume that those before me of like mind spent the majority of their time curing unknown diseases that are a doctor's appointment away, planting seeds blessed from God, marrying their sister if she was pure blood.
So I ask myself, as a conservative, what did conservatives accomplish when i was young/before i was born?
I ask myself what paths have conservatives set our young people, including me, on?

The rich get richer, is the answer.

Then I ask myself what liberals have done, and loe and behold the end product is the same goddam thing.

Ya know it's healthy, imo, to listen to the older generation, and in no way am i being disrespectful. However, there are certain parameters that have within the last 20 or so years been applied to society. Since this is a democracy, i must ask what trhe hell was going on.

It would seem that the logical conclusion would be violent conflict. But i thought the whole point of "rules", any rules, especially ones that apply to internatinoal affairs, was to lessen the need for such rules? How is it then that I find myself, as a canadian, in debt because of this bailout, even though our country had the healthiest economy in the world?

Our bailout was 60 ibill and the us bailout was 700 bill. That is about the same per capita....I don't blame you, american fella, I just look at your generation and wonder at the selfdestructive tendencies of their decisions....HOWEVER....I cannot ignore the state of the americas. I cannot ignore hitler being defeated...imho it is still too soon to stop saying thanks usa...but i mean c'mon. If you're so opinionated, then at least pretend that you can excersice control within your own nation.

.....mumble...mumble..tookerjerbs...mumble.......

I have to give you credit

You come up with the most profound and well thought out and most literate commentaries to back up what you feel I have ever heard here on Ats.

If Tom and Jerry hitting each other in the head with Anvils could be put to words it would sound allot like your political commentary.

Well you undeservedly suffer because of our excesses...

And I believe what we really need in the States is a Philosophy that limits excess rather than encourages and then bandages it.

Let's face it, Canadians don't live extreme...

I almost regret the title of the thread although I don't know what else i'd call it...

Canadians would break themselves down into Liberal and Conservative too I assume... yet neither group seems to engage in nearly the extremes of Greed and Gluttony and Self Pleasuring that we do in this country.

Liberal?

Being worried about whether people use the N word and in what context or if prayer should be allowed in school or Gay marriage...

Both sides are busy with these moronic debates when we are 17 trillion behind the 8 Ball, half our kids drop out of HS and no one can even stay married once they have those kids...

Our priorities across the board are definitely skewed...

Ya know, it's hard to define.
I'm generally looked at as a conservative in my social life.
THEN "social life" turned into "networking".

Networking is what you need to succed in either canada or the us. It's the new way of saying "it's who you know".

But how far have we delved itno this? This newfound plethora of information? The rules stay the same, even though the players could make their own rules.

Figuratively, the new generation has a twelve foot hoop and if yo brag about dunkin'ten well it's admirable but i squeamishly call for what you ahve said to be erased.

Maybe I talk too much. Maybe i'm too worried about it. I don't stress about it, and i'm told not to worry about it, but all these decisions affect me, they all take money outta my wallet.
The next generation is about highlighting the examples of why that shouldn't be.

Funny "looked at as Conservative..."

Your pic doesn't look all That conservative, seems you have enough hair on your head that some might call you a hippie...

Maybe... my brush with Conservatism and willingness to listen to a Sarah Palin comes down to...

Conservative = Not being completely out of control, at least in the States...

I've had long hair most of my life, my spiritual beliefs wax kind of Eastern more than Western, I certainly haven't failed to screw up with chemicals a couple of times before I learned my lesson, was a major slut as younger guy...

And i'm sitting here going...

"you know this is all out of fricken control already man..."

In one way or another...

Financial

Chemical

Dogma

Lack of dedication to Education...

Sexuality

Greed and Consumption...

Sloth

(In fairness easy for me to say now that i'm getting a bit older right)


But I do actually feel like it's all just gone way over the top, particularly with concerns over individual self indulgence

When I was a kid, I turned on TV and saw Mrs and mr Brady kiss and was appalled lol... Girl germs... Today on prime time my kid is cruising past Dagrassi on Nickelodeon and a kid is screaming about his uncontrollable Gay urges...

Maybe Conservative for our generation needs to mean something new... Like... " I understand that running rampant over desire is really screwed up"

It's like we keep needing to up the level on personal satisfaction and indulgence...

I don't smoke Crack wax into Tri Sexuality actually work and can be in a relationship that involves one person and pay for my kids...

Ergo By comparison i'm conservative lol

I'm not sure exactly when we got it in our heads that every moment in life our animal instincts and desires were what would make us really happy...

But I don't think it works and that's from personal experience...

For a long time we invented ways to control our urges... most of those we know in this Century were made up lol but lately I find myself saying... so what if it keeps life under control and not in a downward spiral... until something better comes along it seems to trump immoral decision making.

I'm not supposed to be saying things like this until i'm a really old man...

But there are 100 threads a month on these subjects...ruthless kids, loss of morality, destruction of the family, young people who refuse to work and rob parents...

Maybe Palin has a few things to say, maybe we have really crossed a line...

I don't see any other politician who embraces that we have gone completely out of control, if I attack or use a term like Liberal... maybe it's because this supposedly Liberal Govt atm makes no address other than to hand out cash to Boo Bo it, take away guns so when drug raged we don't shoot each other in the face and make health care available because we all need meds and are unbalanced...

But I see this as big No no

People are living and acting, really really bad and we are essentially funding it in order to survive rather than saying HEY.... cut it out...

God I love it when longwinded responses are deleted by by own stupidity.
..did I say God? I meant.......not god.

Yeah you're right. what you're saying is realistic. what you cite is the same.

My hair? meh, forget about that. It's just hair, and has natural curls. These curls haven't declaired their political affiliation so i wouldn't presume to speak for them. so, no comment on that.

Umm, yeah. So you're old eh?
You're complaining?
If # really goes wrong in teh world have you evcer realized that my generation is gonna mopup for yours?
Have you pictured for one second the face of someone my age, who has just realized the debt he's in?.....
Probably haven't thought of that.

No matter how you put it, your generatin has failed in warding off banking interests as it pertains to the well being of citizens.
Miserably.

This is an unspoken understanding. Yes going to war is horrendous. I could only imagine what went on in ww2. But it's not like anyone got singled out. It's not like people didn't have a say.

Now we have no choice, in our actions. My generation is the surveillance generation. We can be watched any time anyone wants us to.
Thanks for all those freedoms....

TBH, it'd be easier to die, imho, than to choose a path of meekness that only ensures false freedoms of the present.

It's about time you guys who i am supposed to have all this respect for got called out.
Fail.

Fail, fail,Fail.
You did nothing, now banks own the world.
That is a conservative, not an idealistic, point of view. The rich get richer, the middle class disappears.

You do nothing, all of you....No quarter, as they say.

If your not Liberal when you are 20, you have no Heart

If your Not conservative by the time your 40 you have no brain.

In life I have found this to be utter and absolute truth.


Absolutely not true. When you grow a brain by the time you reach 40, you will stop "labeling" yourself (especially) altogether.

I enjoyed the OP, and while there is some somewhat valid liberal and conservative stereotyping that many of us are aware of, in reality I think what is being compared is not liberalism and conservatism:

What is being compared is urban and rural lifestyles. What is being compared is natural and artificial options. What is being compared is people who choose love with people who choose ego. What is being compared is normal lifestyles to psychopathic or acquired psuedopsychopathic behaviour patterns.

You're getting there mopusvindictus, but you're not there yet.

Actually, all the studies show that conservatives are not only happier people, but more balanced, more productive and live better lives than liberals. I do not want to cite examples, but there have been at least 5 studies that all show the same thing.

The new hate group?

Oh boy.

Anyone that adopts such dualistic system is like a man that reacts to being out in the snow in Antarctica by saying, "I shall be happy to live in the Sahara!"

It is the lowest form of intelligence, because it wastes it's time countering extremes of itself.

I am not going to offer any answers, but here are some quotes from a conveniently forgotten thinker:

"I believe what really happens in history is this: the old man is always wrong; and the young people are always wrong about what is wrong with him. The practical form it takes is this: that, while the old man may stand by some stupid custom, the young man always attacks it with some theory that turns out to be equally stupid."

"It is the mark of our whole modern history that the masses are kept quiet with a fight. They are kept quiet by the fight because it is a sham-fight; thus most of us know by this time that the Party System has been popular only in the sense that a football match is popular."

""The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected."

- G.K Chesterton

Of course, I am sure I am wrong. In fact, I know I am.

Just some thoughts outside the box.

The problem with LIBERALS is that they want the Government to take care of them and the cost of that care to come from everyone else. This is SOCIALISM.

Being a LIBERAL = SOCIALIST and SOCIALISM.

They all need to move to California and stay there because it is the only state in the Union of States that is the most screwed up by their laws and fiscal policies.
They don't need to ruin the rest of the nation with their bullpucky!

Calling Liberals idiots, and bashing on liberals for the way they choose to live thier lives...making up lies to tell others about liberal philosophy...


And you say LIBERALS are the hate group?

So what does that make Rush Limbaugh, or Dick Cheney?

Neither are examples of good living, that is for sure.

A fun read this thread.
Sad how everyone wants to put everyone else in a box, stamp, label, and ship to Siberia, but fun to read anyway.
People are people, they come in all shapes and sizes and colors.
Until we all learn some tolerance the beat goes on.

Look hard enough and you can find a little good even in those you disagree with, and a little bad in your best friend. Try it.

Brevity counts.

TLDNR is what the rest of the tautology you have laid down gets.


Nobody is hating on it. But many are indicating that pointing out the lack of value in something or the incongruity with the common social more is not "hate". It's simple observation.

It's clear to everyone that the tired cliché of "Common sense is not as common as one would like it to be".

Listening to too much Rush, buddy? Here's what liberalism ACTUALLY "="

- a political orientation that favors social progress by reform and by changing laws rather than by revolution
- an economic theory advocating free competition and a self-regulating market
wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

- Liberalism is a broad class of political philosophies that considers individual liberty and equality to be the most important political goals.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism

Now, which of these principles is it that you object to?
Socialism = socialism. Liberalism = liberalism.


Furthermore, this thread is ridiculous. It's just a laying bare of human insecurity. "MY WAY OF LIVING IN THE WORLD IS RIGHT EVERYONE SHOULD DO EVERYTHING LIKE ME." The OP talks about how there will be NO culture if liberals had things their way, and then seems to propose...that everybody does things his way? Besides, what makes up culture? Art, music, literature, architecture, and (to a thankfully much lesser degree than when people were being burned at stakes for being accused of witchcraft) religion.

Take away the liberals, and you'll have a couple architects and some churches. Wow, impressive culture. You've managed to make buildings and tell people what to believe.

As far as dying before I'm 120, I'm alright with that. I prefer to not spend my last 20 years defecating all over myself, yelling at Filipino nurses that they steal from me, whilst confusing every person that comes in with my years dead wife. People ALWAYS equate living longer with living better, but simple observation will tell you that the human mind deteriorates, and when it does, life deteriorates. They could probably keep you alive indefinitely at this point, but it wouldn't be living.

There also was the issue of hate. The OP then says, "See?! Look at how angry people are that I've painted what is an apparent majority of the population in a negative and untrue light!!!!" This thread is cultural baiting. People get angry when they get baited. Watch me work it the other way:

Conservatives are all holier-than-thou loudmouths who probably derive a sexual thrill from telling people what to do, and their rampant overbreeding is going to eventually lead to a critical level of human population that will cause people to starve to death due to lack of resources. And since, unfortunately, conservatives don't believe in spending money on things like "science", preferring to spend the taxes THEY never supported on missiles to destroy people they've never met (but don't worry, they've been told they're quite evil), they'll never devise a way to get off this doomed rock, and so therefore conservatives will be the end of the human race.

And now I could watch responses be made which are angry, then I could add to my ridiculous generalization that, "See! Conservatives OBVIOUSLY have anger issues."

Thumbs down, OP. You don't have a valid point, and you don't know 'the right way to live', because there isn't one. As for the 17 year old who lives in Chicago and ADMITS that the reason he leans right is t hat his city leans left; congratulations! You're a teenager rebelling against your environment! If you lived in Kansas, you'd be wearing black and would probably have several interesting piercings!

Threads like these seem to be the only ones going up on ATS anymore, and I can't help but thinking that soon I'll be able to go to the Fox news boards, then go to the MSNBC boards, and I'll have gotten the entire ATS experience.

This is an interesting thread!
Having read every post up to this point in this thread, I think I see the problem:
LACK OF COMMON SENSE!
My Dad was born during the great depression, his Dad raised him alone. They were sharecroppers who lived hand to mouth. Granted my Dad was EXTREMELY dyslexic and never learned to read and indeed when he passed away a couple of years ago could only barely scribble his name on paper. But he pushed me to get an education and taught me that I could accomplish anything in the world that I wanted to accomplish if I used one thing to enhance the education he bought and paid for for me:common sense.
He believed that all the "book learning" in the world was useless as tits on a bull if it wasn't applied to everyday life with common sense.
He voted for the "person" and their agenda and ideas instead of a political affiliation although he would have said he was a democrat.
He believed in giving his children a better life than he had while teaching them the value of working hard, saving for hard times, and living within or below your means.
He and my Mom made sure that we all sat down together every night with all 9 of us kids and ate together as a family and talked about our day.
He believed that YOU could believe whatever in the hell you wanted to believe but that within the four walls of his house and the boundaries of his property he didnt have to let what YOU believed affect his or his familiy's life. And what YOU believed was not going to change his job, his faith, or add or take away one dime from his bank account or the food on his table.
He would have shook his head and smiled if you tried to explain liberals and conservatives to him. In his mind it came down to this: were they trying to do what's right? and did it make common sense.
If neither of those applied, then he wanted no part of it.
My Dad was the smartest man I ever knew.
Common sense....who'd a thunk it!?! ;-)

No wonder... look at your screen name - you're one of the phonies he speaks of.

Joe of the Mountain
Ivy Leaguer, Mensan, highly paid management consultant born in a very major East Coast city (not NY thank God...)

AND BIG ENOUGH TO SAY THIS MAN HAS IT RIGHT.
