  • I am officially denouncing the Political Forum at LGB

    Curt and R_C have gone off the deep end.

    Just because we're all Blues fans doesn't mean we have to be idiots in other areas of our lives.

    Just because you disagree with my political stance makes you all idiots in my eyes, because I'm clearly unable to see the other side of a debate.

      I used to be on the other side of the debate. Were you ever a conservative?

          Nope. And in case you missed it, I've never been a liberal, either. I look at each issue seperately, and pick the side that makes the most sense, and not the one my 'party' decides is the correct side. IE - I'm pretty far right when it comes to criminal law, and pretty far left on most social issues (except issues like welfare - make these people do SOMETHING for their money other than popping out more kids).

          But that's beside the point. Just because I don't agree with someone on an issue doesn't mean I can't understand their position in most cases. There are a few things where I will never understand the other side of the coin (gay marriage, for one). But for the most part, I don't think people are any more or less intelligent because they disagree with, for example, my view on the budget deficiet, the 'war' in Iraq, or abortion. And I can't say that for a lot of people here (and those goes for BOTH sides of the spectrum).

                  I do understand their positions. Why the fuck else do you think I'm so against them?

                  When the government comes to your door and kicks you out of your house because it's being seized for the common good, you can always look back and feel proud that you were tolerant of their positions.

                      'Today's' definition of liberal - ie, far to the left politically.

                      I have plenty of viewpoints on issues that mesh up quite well with the traditional 'conservative' viewpoint, especially when it comes to crime, and most monetary issues. I have no idea if that's the 'textbook' definition of 'liberal' or not - and if it is, I don't know how it got twisted to be the 'insult' it's supposed to be - but I prefer to think of myself as 'independant'. I've voted both Democratic and Republican since I coud vote, and will continue to do so, generally picking the candidate that's closest to the middle and has viewpoints on both sides, and not just cowtowing to the party line.

                      The last presidential election was between two people whe were too far towards the edge of the political spectrum for my tastes. Had a real moderate run, I think they could have easily won the election.

                          I could care less you're against their positions. It's the automatic assumption of their idiocy that I'm against.

                              Republoicans and Democrats are right in the middle of the political spectrum, hardly discernable from each other to a non American.

                              The classical liberal idea is one that respects private property and accepts free markets and the realities of economic competition, meaning that not everybody is going to be rich.

                              Modern liberalism is more about social issues.

                              It's fukken socialism and the sooner people wake up to that fact the better.

                              If you're a liberal in the american sense, you are advocating socialism.

                              We can all live in a free market or we can all be poor.

                              You decide.
