While I think the military industrial complex makes the big decisions, not like this watered down healthcare bill, or don't ask don't tell stuff. But no there not the same, and liberals are not for the Iraq war, or a lot of what you listed below, they are nothing alike whatsoever, in fact I don't know what they can agree on. One likes guns, one doesn't, one thinks global warming is man made, one doesn't, one is for the poor people, one if for the rich, one is for a strong middle class, one isn't. They but heads every step of the way, I don't think voting matters that much but I like democrats way more, and I consider myself a liberal.



Why are you replying to me? I didnt say they were the same parties?

I said this thread is one of the dumbest threads ive ever read because it makes 0 sense.

Anyone that would compare a mentally ill conservative to a far left liberal is just out of his mind.

Very few people are far left or right, they are just the loudest speakers and they will not shut up!, the largest majority are in the middle.

Most Americans are both left and right, the problem is they have turned us into some weird socialist, theocratic democracy.

We need or republic back.

The middle or moderates are not extreme in nature and the majority. Too bad our voices and wills are not listened too.

Love how educated your view of liberals are. Total bullsh.it and then you list specific policies of the conservatives and only your opinions about liberals.

Edit: And what you should have said about conservatives is that theyre evil, unpatriotic as.sholes that think they have some moral high ground over the rest of the world and perpetually try to eliminate peoples rights while liberals do what they can to promote as much equal rights as possible.

Look, if you don't agree, present your own model rather than saying "duhhhh...one is far left and one is far right."

The facts are that the paradigm in the US is that Liberals are "cool" and "progressive...going forward, man! Live and let live. Do what you want man, as long it's ok with us, or else!"

The conservatives are staid, rigid, imperialistic, authoritarian and grumpy. "Ahhh when I was your age, we didn't have no marijuana, or no electricity! We had sex with girls and only girls, and we liked it! And when the cops beat our heads in, we appreciated it!!"

Both stances are silly, because they allow a centralized "elite" to run their lives.

Im insulting you because you dont know what the hell youre talking about. Sorry but theres no easy way to say it.

If you think that drug dealers shouldnt get their prison term for polluting our children with that intoxicating *SNIP* that they pump themselves up with and then get behind the wheel of a car, or overdose, or spread HIV/AID's with needles, and the myriad of other social issues that drugs contribute to, then you are mentally ill, yes.

Left wing politics and right wing politics. Google. I dont need to write a book to help somebody that doesnt know what either one is better understand their policies.

The slicktalking psychopath leaders both side elect over and over and over are the same. If they were so different, why doesn't anything ever change when the power shifts? It is always pushes for more government, less freedom, just at different angles. They argue about crap that shouldn't even be federal issues in the first place, because they are hot button issues that will get the sheep riled and corralled.

Aspirin doesnt kill more people then drugs, are you insane?

Theres no point in even trying to talk to you because your arguments are moot and now you are going back and forth on issues.

•Tobacco kills about 400,000
•Alcohol kills about 80,000
•Workplace accidents kill 60,000
•Automobiles kill 40,000
•Cocaine kills about 2,500
•Heroin kills about 2,000
•Aspirin kills about 2,000
•Marijuana kills 0

So in a way your right asptin doesnt kill as many total.....just about the same amount as herion or coke each. And you havent answered anything......just hurled BS and insults..........I ask again......where did I say kids should be allowed to do drugs?

Nicotine and Alcohol are considered drugs FYI, and posting workplace accidents and automobile accidents is stupid. Both statistics are also manipulated by drug abuse.

Well I looked at Wiki and found this about statsm.

"describing political movements which support the use of the state to achieve goals" I certainly believe that we must reduce the size of the public sector and also get the state out of our homes. Statism is mentioned by the followers of Adam smith. Therefore many will fall into the tired left/right paradigm and automatically denounce it.

I need to check more of this out.

People can be socially left and politically right or hawkish when it comes to security and dovish when it comes to sexuality for example.

The trouble is who ever won an election and then went on to cut the size ofthe public sector?
