beezzerLiberals think conservatives are evil.
Conservatives just think liberals are wrong.
But, then you go on to say there is a difference in how they hate and who they hate. A little confusing, if not self-contradictory. I suppose I misunderstood your point.
People actually believe the liberal/conservative divide is a real one, and that there is any real fundamental difference between either.
I don't suppose you're surprised to discover that I disagree with you. Besides, the point of the essay, and thus the OP, was that the policies enacted under the banner of Liberalism seem to decrease human freedom, and even human life. The examples provided in the essay support that position.
Conservatives hate women, gays, minorites, poor people, working people, struggling people, non-Christians except Jews, ect
Your argument, then, is that Liberals ARE misanthropes, but Conservatives are too?
So really, your anti-liberal ranting is amusing, if not delusional. Conservatives gate freedom too.
That's a good point and I wondered about it, so I took a quick look. A charitable study group looked at the percentage given in the states which voted for McCain, versus those which voted for Obama. I know that means it's old information, and one study isn't conclusive, but I found it interesting.
I like to follow the money first when it comes to anything regarding politics and "philanthropy".
The Chronicle of Philanthropy's study released this week found the eight states with residents who gave the highest percentage of their income to charity in 2008 also voted that year for Republican presidential nominee John McCain. And the seven states in which residents donated the lowest percentage of their income that year voted for President Obama, based on 2008 IRS information.
Maybe you're right. I don't know, but it's certainly possible.
Honestly this sounds more like the Republican man trying to justify his guilt.
I think you probably right there. I have no way of knowing about guilt, it may be a factor or not. But the economical side confuses me a little. If Conservatives love money, and the Prius can be shown to save them money, you'd think they'd be all over it. I don't have the numbers, but I suspect they're not swarming the show rooms.
On a side note, owning a Prius is not a guilt thing, its both an economical thing as well a being good to the earth thing.
