Not sure what to make of this other than it makes me sad - I thought we could do better than this.

This kind of polarizing hyperbole is directly the result of the efforts of Lee Atwater, Karl Rove and the Bush Family et.al. who raised the level of polarizing politics in the 80's and focused on the use of "liberal" as a pejorative. The same talking points are laid out here again for us - sad really.

Nor do I see what this political opinion is doing taking up so much space on this website. Where is the conspiracy here?

You know sir, one of the problems I've had with the conservative dogma over the years has been that they like to paint certain people with the same brush - they like to group people into neat little categories, assign them common traits, faults, etc. The categories you assign are determined by skin color, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and on and on. This post of your just goes to prove my theory correct.

Are you kidding me? I am a liberal and accept everyone equally. I hate somebody if they deserve the hate. Liberals are the ones who are hated. Everywhere I go there are always liberal basher who attack liberals for what they believe. They are just pissed that we don't want the same things they want and that the majority of the population in 20 years will be liberal.


and where the hell did you get your findings from? CNN?

I loved your rant. If I may, it boils down to "misery loves company" and so the liberal socialist agenda is being thrust on us all.

Americans = major hate group.

We think there's a solution to everything. We decide who lives and who dies based on our prejudices. We try to justify our actions through superficial evidence.

Those who we like lives.

Those who we hate dies.

Boys and girls, men and women, arguing over this isn't going to change anything.
Doing something about it WILL.
I'm pretty sure that the solution to our problems as individuals, as people, and as a nation doesn't have a damn thing to do with conservatism NOR liberalism, but somewhere in the middle. The solution for government is to make it smaller, less intrusive, less powerful, to stop taxation without representation, to stop corruption on a national scale, and indeed to make those responsible for it accountable and to charge those responsible for their crimes and put them away, and replace them with people who are honest, and hold their feet to the fire and put them to work on AFFORDABLE solutions to help those who need it, and to axe the "solutions" we can't afford and that aren't working for us and that are putting our national checking account in the red. Until we ALL stand together as AMericans and countrymen and brothers and sisters and husbands and wives and put our collective foot down, things are going to continue to get worse, and the real solutions are going to be ignored and our way of life and our children's freedom are going to be trampled on by those WE put in charge who don't care, and who don't listen, and who are totally out of touch with OUR reality.
Lets not point the finger of blame at Liberals or Conservatives, but at the self serving, greedy, and corrupt individuals of EITHER group who are financially bankrupting our country, and lets get their a**es out of office.
And above all lets use wisdom and common sense when selecting the ones we replace them with, AND use that same wisdom and common sense when living and making decisions in our own individual lives.

Wow. I was born in New York City and had the precise same experience. Once I was college age I moved out to the forest lands and the difference in quality of life really changed me forever. Thanks for this thread. Everything you said is right on. You should expand your article into a book titled THE TRAGEDY OF URBAN DWELLERY VS. THE JOY OF REAL AMERICA.

Thanks again. Awesome stuff.

Ha ha, what a nice post.

I can only say - dont come to Denmark - I have always thought it is funny how USA only have those 2 parties (I know its easier to control the upcomming president, but anyway
)

What you call liberal is in Denmark a conservative.

Please let me explain a little thing about the danish parties that will make you laugh.

We have a party called Venstre (translated its: Left) because when the party was founded, it was on the left side !

Then a lot of other leftwing parties through time joined, and Venstre (Left) became a right wing party.

Until this year our priminister Anders Fogh Rasmussen was leader of Venstre (Left)

Now hes is leader of Nato


Anyway, today we have 2-3 leftwing parties - 2-3 midlle paries - and 2-3 rightwing parties

Really? Did you just forget about all the foreign aid provided by the USA? To Africa? Other third worlds? Oh wait that must be poison rice!

Another example of a lack of common sense..


And I had to LOL at your comment "superficial evidence".

AS IF you provided concrete evidence of the "evil" America.

Oh look, another hate filled political troll thread.

"Liberals are evil, hateful, and unhappy"

"Conservatives are stupid, fearful, and unhappy"

"No I'm not, you are"

"No! YOU!"

Way to generalize. It's human nature to align with a group and support that group. Our ideals can often merge with the group ideals, sacrificing individual values. Both groups are proving to be nothing more than monkey's throwing feces at each other. Way to preach freedom and practice bigotry.

"Sure, you have the freedom to say whatever you please. But watch out because if I disagree with what you say, I'll start throwing rocks until you are forced to change your ways and agree with me."

By definition, Liberalism is about open mindedness and free will. Yup, that sounds absolutely evil to me. Conservatism is about resisting change and holding on to tradition. Both are admirable in their own respects. Neither represent what today's liberals and conservatives practice.

I've said it several times before and I'll say it yet again. This is one tool being used to keep the people divided and distracted. The "them vs us" crap keeps us divided and easy to manipulate. The country will not unite under conservative ideals. The country will not unite under liberal ideals. While these two groups are picking up members and keeping the fight going, the people have little to no power over the government. And anyone who participates in these pointless "No, YOU"! matches is helping everyone else get completely screwed over.

More residual sour grapes from avid but unhappy Sarah Palin supporters.

Not all of us can be alike that's why we have liberals AND conservatives.

That's why we have day and night time, hot and cold water....protons and electrons , etc.

Without these differences the world would be a very boring place.

I love life in New Hampshire, fresh air and water. Beaches and mountains. I can ride my motorcycle for 25 miles without encountering a single stop light which is awesome !!

I used to work in NYC as a consultant flying down to LaGuardia every week.
Upon arrival I hated the smell of the city , almost like that of a sewer but I realized the New Yorkers can't smell anyway and are used to that stench they call air !

But as they say, live and let live it is a free country. We define our own happiness by our own paradigms. Those in NYC are obviously happy with the city and hence why they stay there.
More power to them ! I don't want them here !!!

In order to break the generalization proclaimed by the OP though I for one don't HATE and I am not a city dwelling Liberal .

I also don't care for Sarah Palin as my President or Presidential Candidate.. I don't care for any of the govt owned candidates.

I for one , as many of us at ATS don't buy into this TV gameshow called American Politics.

Its all a sham and the powers to be just laugh at the time the sheeple waste bickering with one another. Time wasted on their postage prepaid candidates who answer to them anyway.

But reading between the lines here and thinking outside the box, I am seeing a huge potential business here....and that is inflatable talking(You Betcha) Sarah Palin Dolls for only two easy payments of $49.95 !

Sarah Fan: Hey Sarah, is it time for a little nighty night action ?
Sarah Doll: You Betcha !

I have identified myself as mostly liberal because of my position on issues that would seem to be effected by whether or not democrats or republicans are in power. But this thread is causing me to reconsider doing this in the future.

I believe everyone should have access to medical care, not just emergency care. My reasons for this are not entirely humanitarian. I believe the current system is very wasteful and inefficient as well as being inhumane. In other words, I am socially progressive but financially conservative on this issue. Yet many conservatives would simply brand me a communist on this issue alone.

I believe in a woman's right to choose. By current definition this a liberal position, but isn't keeping the govt from interfering with personal decisions a conservative core belief? That does not mean I agree with abortion or disagree with it, it means I think I have no right to impose myself on someone else.


I support the right of gays to marry. Again this is liberal by current definition. But is based on what I believe to be a conservative value, the right to personal choice sans govt interference.

I recently posted that I own 11 firearms. But I forgot to count two pistols, so make that 13. I take my second amendment rights quite seriously. Once again, so much for the stereotype the OP and others have placed upon "liberals".

The current definition of conservative seems to mean that one supports every deployment of combat troops without question. Why so supportive of war? I oppose sending troops to Afghanistan and keeping troops in Iraq any longer than absolutely necessary based on beliefs that cannot be pigeon holed as liberal, yet the right automatically attacks anyone who does not support these wars as unpatriotic, or worse. We were not attacked by either country and these wars are placing us in economic peril. That used to be considered quite a conservative position.

It seems that the OP is saying liberals are just effeminate, egg-headed, misfits. I am twice married and have a child. Nor could I be considered physically unhealthy. Mentally, ....I leave that to others to judge, but I'm happy most of the time.

Believe that if you wish, but it is no more true than saying conservatives are bigoted, inbred fools. The whole left vs. right paradigm falls apart under scrutiny. People are not so simple and uncomplicated as to be stereotyped into two neat groups. If you think that they are then I would suggest that perhaps your thinking has been manipulated.

Turn on MSNBC, Fox, AM, FM or XM and you will hear pundits from either side demonize the other. Why? I think it goes beyond ratings. It is a distraction, a misdirection, meant to keep us all occupied and divided. I cannot believe that all conservatives are in lock step and marching us into fascism. But that seems to be what liberal commentators have to say.

I think what most people ultimately want is the same thing. We want fair economic opportunities, freedom, affordable health care, good schools, safe streets and a govt that is responsive to our voice. We will never completely agree on how to get those things, so we debate and then we vote. Afterwards we all pull together as Americans for the good of our country.

But many of us have allowed ourselves to be convinced that those who disagree with us are not 'real" Americans. Instead, we see those who disagree with us on political issues as the embodiment of evil. For the good of our country we should do away this kind of thinking and ask ourselves why the media has led us down this path.

Conserve what, may I ask? Human Life? The Planet? Our Earths resources?
Oh it is Money. Conserve money... Oh then yes you are a conservative.
If you are a supporter of nuclear power and want to exploit the worlds resources as quickly as possible you are not a liberal.
If you are PRO-LIFE you must also be ANTI-WAR or you LIE. You must also be against Capital Punishment or you are not actually PRO-LIFE you are pro-fetus and ANTI-WOMB-MAN and you are not a liberal
The Conservative-Republican agenda is designed to destroy the earth and bring about the end times quickly. NO? Go to the Earth Policy Institute.org website and you will find a list of the top 5 recommendations to save the planet and thus save our SPECIES. ALL OF THEM ARE DIRECTLY OPPOSITE THE REPUBLICAN GOP platform as advocated by Sarah Palin and others.
I AM GLAD TO BE A LIBERAL...some have even called me a "dirty liberal" and I answered actually -I am very clean and cleanliness is next to Godliness. But how would they know that? No way.

After reading the OP and your other posts I have come to the conclusion you are the most unstable individual I have seen post on here. I really think if you dont seek some professional help you may end up hurting yourself or others. You should really get your anger under control before it kills you.

You say you moved away from the big city to out in the country small community where things are so much better. Well , I live here in the south in a very small community and alot of my neighbors and friends have different political and religous views but we focus on what we have in common and dont belittle and hate each other for our differences.

Dont know where you moved outta the big city to but in this small community (not even a town) and all of the small ones around we are not all palin loving conservatives who look and act like robotic replicas of each other


Actually even though I am a registered republican I have turned away from the party just because of people filled with hate like you. Even though I dont like Obama and didnt vote for him or Mccain , it has made me so sick and upset to hear all the die hard conservatives at work throw around the "N" word talking about how Obama is ruining the country. It sounds so ignorant and hateful.

If they repub's ever want to attract any of us back to the party or any new blood they need to be more open minded and not just spew vitriolic filth and generalizations. That close minded hatred of I am right and you are wrong because you dont agree with me and therefore you are scum just isnt gonna cut it anymore.

Another word of advice just in case you ever come face to face with your beloved idol sarah palin...........you might not want to keep throwing around the word "RETARD" to question someones intelligence like you have so many times on here. You see , people who have loved ones or friends with mental disabilties find the word used so carelessly and hatefully offensive and repugnant. I know this first hand, It makes you seem like nothing more than a pitiful hate filled ignorant bigot.

The Christian way is an excellent way to bring together warring fighting frightened people of diverse backgrounds. It just makes sense.
It is not the only way but it goes a long way toward a goal of bringing about a peaceful, prosperous planet and people.
We are given enough of everything here on this earth. Everything we might possibly need is here, except understanding.
Now people who are ISOLATIONIST and want to eliminate everything within their eyesight that does not look familiar to them and keep only what is safe and comfortable...these to me are CONSERVATIVES. No opening up to new ideas. They conserve the OLD IDEAS. True, old ideas are generally best but with new problems we need new solutions. Even God created a NEW testament because the Old one was outdated and obsolete.
I want health care for everyone because everyone affects me.
I cannot WALL MYSELF up inside a security gate as so many CONSERVATIVES hope to do to keep them separated from the great unwashed. I live amongst everyone.
Everyone must be well so I don't CATCH anything.
This smacks of conservatism to me...but it is just LOVE coming full circle as it is want to do...if it is ever there in the first place.
These so-called conservative fools don't even realize what havoc they will bring upon themselves by their self serving and cold hearted actions.
They will reap what they sow. What a novel concept.

There is an old saying

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.




Well...

This I agree with (although I'd say the number is older than 40 for most before they realize that)

It should be said before I even look at the rest of these compared to most conservatives in the USA

This is a Commentary and a Valid one...

ON how Liberals have become completely intolerant to those who simply wish to live within their own culture, preserve their traditions etc, etc...

I believe what is leading this country is NOT LIBERAL in the classic sense at all as I said earlier in the same way G W Bush was NO CONSERVATIVE

But back on yout topic

YES to define yourself by a simple lablel is moronic...

Even more reason why people should turn the light and look at what I am saying from more angles than simply being insulted by a Title and Label they associate with themselves

Telling people what they can say, blanketing anyone with Conservative ideals as evil, punishing thought... none off those things is LIBERAL

Mandates on any behavior... not Liberal

I Just want people to keep eyes wide open on what is really going on in the Name of Liberalism

That is why I made the separation between Liberals in Washington and Liberals you meet down the street from your house. I am not seeing a Liberal agenda being unfolded, I'm seeing the same fascist agenda as that of the Bush years. And it KILLS ME that people are so blind to it that they are missing all the signs.
