So I guess I'm not a liberal, but I'm not a conservative, either - I consider myself a centrist.

The first one about Bush, yes I agree about the bankers making the bad house loans were more to blame - Bush didn't have enough power or time to make mistakes regarding the economic bubble popping, I never considered him being responsible - I don't even think he made hardly any mistakes compared to Obama's administration.

About the news, MSNBC is biased, but Fox News is also biased, both of them to the point of even fabricating facts. John Stewart, on the other hand, is a better news anchor than anyone on those two news channels, so I disagree with #2.

Oh, it's a good idea not to watch MSNBC, I can never stand that station, I recommend CNN - I honestly find them trying to be accurate. Fox is also terrible.

Racism? Well, that one, I have to say wasn't a problem back in 2008 - however, the liberals pushed the racist and sexist agenda so far that there has been a rebound and this country is now more sexist and racist than I've ever seen it in my entire life.

Obama Care - liberals didn't want to listen to legitimate criticisms about it, and now look what happened, they have to face the music - but, the problem is, the good things that they had going for them are going down with the ship. It's bad news, but yeah, I'm sure I warned about it on A.T.S. at some point.

It's why listening skills are important. Anyway, I think a similar article could be written about conservatives being out of touch. I wouldn't be as harsh on them as a lot of liberals, but honestly, this article wasn't that harsh, I actually found it kind of accurate even though conservatives annoy me in a lot of cases.

Perish the thought I would say something in Obama's favor but didn't Bush allow the banker bailout of 2008? Instead of letting them fail he propped them up continuing the problem and making it worse. No?

Jon Stewart is not a newsman??? Anyone who gives us accurate facts is newsworthy enough for me. He seems to be a lot sharper than most I've seen on CNN and equal to any on Fox. We won't discuss MSNBC.

So, am I a liberal?

I´m not from US, although I would answer couple of questions from there.

1) Bush caused collapse? No. Last couple of decades of bad economic policies did, trickle-down economy does not work. Under-regulated corporations and banks. Had the banks been regulated before, it would have ensured bad loans were not done. Also low taxes on very high salaries helped a bit. Less income for government leads to lower revenue.

2) High taxes improve economy. If used well, then yes.

For example, socialised healthcare would lead to better health of the average joe. If people are healther, they are more productive. When workers are more productive, it is good for the economy.

Or if used on education, including higher. More educated people, more opportunities for lower class -> more educated nation = more skilled and innovative labour= good for the economy.

Social safety networks provide for children and help people in trouble out of trouble. Less worries about future is psychologically good and increases productivity. Also at the end it is better, when a person gets back on track and is again productive citizen paying his/her taxes, rather than letting him/her struggle a lot, leading to different issues or even criminal activity simply to survive. Better nutrition of children leads to better development and better health, which is good for the economy in the long run. Better nutrition for grown-ups again leads to better health, which in the long run is better for the economy.

You might be a liberal...
... if you're smarter than a 5th grader but haven't graduated high-school yourself.
... if you're smarter than a 5th grader but you don't understand the difference between "their", "there" and "they're".
... if you're smarter than a 5th grader, know math, and STILL think deficit spending is a good thing.
... if you think I should stop with the "smarter than a 5th grader" references.

Even a 5th grader knows that if you don't have enough money coming in, you don't have enough money to spend, and that they either need to bring more money in or stop spending so much money.

It doesn't take a redneck to teach economy.

They say you can't squeeze blood from a turnip so I ask where have they been getting blood from and we're running out of turnips.

I read that list and think;
Wow it must be depressing to not be a liberal.

The labels you dearly cling to are a tool to chase away any information that causes dissonance with your (current) world view.

You're not alone, but the bad news is that with your precious free will you are self-enforcing ignorance.

I have a general belief that humans are worth saving. Your contribution via this post isn't.

You might be a former conservative if you (finally) figured out that bank deregulation (GHWB) and supply side economics (Reagan) is the biggest fraud in the history of humanity.

You might be a former fundy Christian if you finally figured out that killing people for a paycheck, consumerism, greed and generally being mean to make yourself feel good are not endorsed in the new testament..

Am I a liberal for thinking it was Ronnie Reagan who was ultimately responsible for the crash of '08 through deregulation of the stock market?

Ok I'm going to have to defend the liberals on this point. I read this article as well as the follow-up article and both are EXTREMELY partisan biased. Like really bad. How can you call liberals out for watching MSNBC when conservatives are just as bad with Foxnews? How can you call liberals out for double standards on their partisan talking points when conservatives do the same crap? Also in the second article it mentions how Bush didn't lie to go to Iraq, that is just straight-up wrong on so many levels. Bush literally said that there were WMD's in Iraq and we needed to go there to get them, but nope there weren't and there never was any nor was there evidence to suggest that there was.

This thread should be closed, it is just a partisan attack on the liberals and is uncalled for.

If ATS decided on that route, we'd have to rid ourselves of all the political forums, stick our fingers in our collective ears and yell "lalalalalalalala" because the partisan crap is everywhere.

So… no, I don't think the thread should be closed. If liberal thinkers can't stand up against such mean-spirited crap, then all hope is lost.

I agree with you, but then again, I'm a 'Liberal' when it comes to policy, so I guess my opinion isn't worthy of much.

But, I have to admit, I know the difference between 'their, they're, we're, were', etc. Does that make me smarter than other liberals?
