Conservatives tend to be more religious.

Political ideology has nothing to do with thoughtfulness
Apparently it does. Actually current events show that it does, what with the republicans trying to bankrupt all of us so they can take the money and run.

Your post lambasts the conservative ideology then near the end you ask for compromise.
You're left-leaning in your posts.
Of course you would despise a conservative ideology and call it false.
I, on the other hand, think that the leftist liberal agenda is very real. I just don't agree with it.
Tell me, do you support bigger government or smaller government?
The original political meanings of ‘left’ and ‘right’ have changed since their origin in the French estates general in 1789. There the people sitting on the left could be viewed as more or less anti-statists with those on the right being state-interventionists of one kind or another. In this interpretation of the pristine sense, libertarianism was clearly at the extreme left-wing.
In the anarchist, Marxist and socialist sense, free association (also called free association of producers or, as Marx often called it, community of freely associated individuals) is a kind of relation between individuals where there is no state, social class or authority, in a society that has abolished the private property of means of production. Once private property is abolished, individuals are no longer deprived of access to means of production so they can freely associate themselves (without social constraint) to produce and reproduce their own conditions of existence and fulfill their needs and desires.

We just want the workers to own their own labour, the means of production, so we can produce for our needs, not someone elses profit. All the rest is simply BS.
