People can link all the charts they want they are charts.

Pay attention to the real world and see ideology in action.


It's not a chart. I found it to be quite accurate.

BS...And intentional BS...Lest I start "qouting" you in my responses and take the liberty to edit your text to content I think you would likely say?


Final word... Absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence. Like you, I rely on the interwebs for research. Much of the information on the interwebs is inaccurate. My research showed that the quote was attributed to Tocqueville and my reading of Tocqueville offered a direct link to Franklin. It was neither unreasonable or an intent to defraud that led to my assertions.

You assert at there is no proof the quote is attributed to Franklin. I assert that there is no evidence to prove that the quote is NOT attributable to Franklin. Stalemate!

Have a good evening.

The chart I posted is how ideologies actually are, I find liberals to be quite center, progressives to be slightly left and above of center, conservatives to be slightly right and above of center, libertarians to be below center both left and right.

However the political narrative in this country keeps moving the vertical line right. I'm so stubborn about this topic because I don't think it's proper to do that. Truth above all else otherwise how can you possibly know what you're dealing with. What we're really dealing with, with government is traitors to every ideology that elects them... their bosses aren't us, but their corporate masters, we're just the morons betting on the ponies thinking everything will be alright if only my pony wins.

From the first days that our prehistoric ancestors gathered into tribes, the goal has been to "take care" of one another. When a hunter is injured amongst the tribe, he can heal and hunt again rather than starve to death. The elderly are used for thier wisdom, everyone shares best practices... Everyone benefits. Security, Education and Healthcare...benefit all members of the tribe.

If you don't understand the value in that then I suggest you move to a third world country.


Right, and it has always been the priest class to take care of these people, not Government. Look towards the church or family.

It wasn't a chart that I posted a link to..

www.nolanchart.com...

It's a short quiz/survey that will show you where you are on the political chart... It's surprisingly accurate.

By the way, there are very few true centrists... It's far more of a rarity than people assume.

Liberals cannot be simultaneously fascist and communistic. The ideologies are polar opposites to each other.

Obviously someone doesn't understand the difference between Fascism and Communism.

Sure can because fascism draws from pretty much all ideology out there.

They are not 'mutually exclusive' as some people try to spin,.

I know what that is I've taken the quiz before, I'm pretty far down left. I disagree that most people aren't center, I think most are or slightly left or slightly right... however people vocal like us ATS'rs or other forums tend to be more extreme either way.

Interesting comment to make considering that comment has exact NO SUBSTANCE.

So all the facts I said are wrong because my views differ from yours....yeah ok....Guess the sky is not blue cause I said so


Plus I do not support the current welfare system. It needs to be replaced and shaken up and trimmed down both in USA and UK. But before that or dureing that that millions of private sector jobs need creating. Unless disabled no one should be relying on help more than a month. If people are gennraling out of work and cant find anything what so ever or 400 people are apllying for 1 bugger flipping job then there is a MAJOR problem somewere and the genuine job seekers should not be punnished for that.

Only fascists can be fascist. This isn't hard to understand. Forcing people to buy corporate products or subsidizing people small or no incomes so that people can buy corporate products is the work of the corporations themselves encouraging policies that favor them, fighting to not have to pay employees fair wages etc. Fascism is Corporate control of government. That's exactly what we have. Look up ALEC sometime.

That sir Heff is a false dilemma we both know it people have multiple means to provide for themselves.

1. Friends,Family,or Food Shelters.
2. Get a job, or do anything they can to make cash to eat.

Anyone who says Government is the only option well it's not that is just outsourcing the 'responsibility' that some people claim we are suppose to have.

Since the prevailing wisdom is anything government creates will become corrupted,bloated or misused the prevailing 'logic' or 'wisdom' is to not create it in the first place.

There is nothing stopping we the people from helping out any other person the issue is when people default that to government.


edit on 11-8-2013 by neo96 because: (no reason given)


The unfortunate thing is:

1. Many people do not have friends or family to help them. I speak from experience here. Homeless shelters are scarce, and provide little help.
2. Too bad jobs, even peanut jobs, are scarce and difficult. Not to mention the cost of eating goes up when you have no place to prepare your own meals.

This is how the word LIBERAL is commonly understood, Kali - Straight from the Urban Dictionary.


LIBERAL:

Liberal is a person with liberal views. However, an EXTREME liberal is the WORST type of person. To start with they brainwash people. Then they convince you that their pre made views they hand to you are open minded. They tell you to hate Republicans and everyone who thinks differently than you. They are the first to throw around the word racist. Most extreme liberal abuse minorities. They look for a group typically blacks or hispanics, convince them they are nothing and need the liberals to survive, then exploit them for political power. Extreme liberals are usually igorant but claim everyone else is. They pretend to be looking out for the people but are only looking out for themselves. Some day people will realize this is the truth.
www.urbandictionary.com...

The way you describe liberalism, I would think the average liberal would advocate outing abusers of the system rather than calling those who do “Tea Bagger Biggots” as the OP’s article does.

More corporate vilification I love it !

Sorry that is not the work of corporations that is the work of political ideology of wait for it , politicians.




fighting to not have to pay employees fair wages etc. Fascism is Corporate control of government.


Sorry fair wage nonsense ?

Mean paying people what they think they are worth instead of getting paid for the actual work performed ?

That fair wage being employers paying SS contributions,unemployment insurance, workmans comp insurance, for every employee they have PLUS all the other expense's it takes to run a business all so someone can fill out an application to push a broom, get their holiday pay, triple time, and their 4 weeks of paid vacation (paid for doing nothing) of course multiplied by how many employees they have.

Corporations were truly fascist they would not be getting half of that stuff.

The government created fiat currency, the government created social engineering programs that are nothing, but CORPORATE WELFARE.

And the nerve to lay that all on the evil corporations?

Hell no that is on politicians because their perverted ideology of greed and materialism, and power and control.

I do not buy that there are any number of places willing to help out.

But no one seems to care all most people want to do is make emotional argument's to justify government fascism.

I'm sorry but when it comes down right to it I have my own problems to be worried about someone else.

True some people may find that cold the fact is the only person who is going to get another person out of a hole is the person themselves.

This thread should be under political madness!

I don't find it ironic that this is posted on liberals united. What I do find ironic is the fact that they don't offer any evidence to substantiate that this was actually done by the tea-party, or any member thereof.

Oregon is a liberal state controlled by liberals. Portland is a liberal city controlled by liberals. I should know I lived there for several years. Any one who had access to this information worked for a liberal agency! I seriously doubt that any government agency would hire anyone from the tea party. And with this whole NSA 's unconstitutional seizure of the American's private information they would most certainly know if you were a tea party member or not.

Furthermore with all of this liberal tracking of information via cellphone, video and satellite's etc. They most certainly must have some video evidence of who posted this flyer. I would be willing to bet that it wasn't a tea party member that done this. With the amount of money that we the tax payers pay the NSA they should come forth and identify the culprit.

I have done some searching this is what I have come up with so far.
stories:
Officials worry fliers targeting the disabled could incite violence
link
link 2
www.katu.com... y-fliers-targeting-the-disabled-could-incite-violence-218951581.html

I find it interesting that in all three of these news stories the tea party is not mentioned 1 time. The only time the tea party has been mentioned was by the liberal blogger that you posted.

With the popularity of this current administration with all of their scandals and unconstitutional activity even the smart dems are jumping ship. The only way to take the focus off of themselves is to create more hate. I would be more inclined to believe that this flyer was posted by a liberal! After all they have shown time and time again that truth doesn't matter only winning matters.

In a time when everyone realizes that the whole country is going to hell in a hand basket, all the liberals can do is deflect.

I can't count the number of threads that I have seen lately attacking the right with no bases of fact.

Edit to add; This post should never have been allowed. It is clearly political trolling with no bases of fact. IMO
