U saved my weary fingers bravo
If I crudely summarize my political views, I like countries to become as green as possible on this map:
I'm not a progressive. What they call "liberal" now in the US is not liberal. Somehow the term has been hijacked and conflated with left-leaning progressives. That's not a true liberal.
In the US, I get the impression that conservatives are more liberal than what they call "liberals" now over there.
I’m liberal. The shitty thing in the us is the leftists stole the liberal term.
You say Liberal/Libertarian like the terms are interchangable. Like Fried/Tomato.
@MoscowMitch Yes, because i said authoritarian.I know what you are getting at and I couldnt be less interested in getting into that with you.You missed the point, thats your problem.
@selfdestruction The problem that you have in the United States is the same problem faced everywhere in which politics is defined in a left right scale, but it is far more pronounced in the United States because you are so heavily brainwashed and polarised and taught to wave flags etc.2 axis are required to define all polticial and economic posititons, authoritarian liberitarian and communist, capitalist.When you try to lump 2 axis into 1 axis you end up with conflicts, the most pronounced of which is the low taxes economic freedom and the fewer laws personal freedom aspects.In the single axis scale authoritarian and capitalist are bundled together and communist and libertarian are bundled together which is not only confusing and inaccruate but it makes looking at half of the spectrum completely impossible.I you hope to understand anything about political, economic systems etc the first step is to understand the compass.This idea should be promoted as much as possible in the United States in hopes that you can finally put this nonsense to an end.https://www.politicalcompass.org/
I see what you're trying to say, you just expressed it very poorly.
@MoscowMitch I expressed myself just fine, you are just a prick.
Really? You are the one calling names.
@MoscowMitch You came in here acting like a prick and i told you to fuck off, so fuck off.
Did someone die and leave you in charge? I don't think so.
@MoscowMitch Just fucking drop it and fuck off stupid cunt you are like a fucking dog trying to hump my leg.Following me into other fucking threads now because you dont know when to just shut up and fuck off
Liberal but sexist, nice. Perfect example of liberal hypocrisy. And i’m not even conservative.
No. You're just a fool if you think I'm sexist.
Was the dig at men really necessary considering the topic of discussion? I lean liberal in my politics, but I can see how blanket ad hominems and sly digs like this can make right-wingers more resentful towards what they perceive as the "(in) tolerant left".
@SomeGuyCalledTom It’s not a dig. It’s an observation. The majority of GaG men are conservative and have unflattering view of women.I couldn’t care less of what they think because plenty of them are blatant hypocrites and refuse to acknowledge it.
Right well let's suppose that's true for sake of argument. But what compels you to draw a link between political conservatism and "unflattering views of women"?
A liberal woman assuming that she knows better than conservative men and that their opinions aren’t even worth her time or attention because she is so above them. Yeah you’re really only going to feed the stereotype that conservatives have about “libtards” and about women. It’s pretty obvious why conservative men have poor views of women. Your own behavior feeds that negative perception that they have. Good luck navigating through life with that attitude.
and why do you think men have those views of women? if it were just a bunch of guys then you could say they're just misogynists but if it's many guys, then their must be a reason behind those particular views
@SomeGuyCalledTom It is true whether or not you believe it.Studies show that conservative beliefs and prejudice are linked. That’s why. The responses speak for themselves.
I'd need to see the studies in question to offer any comment
I completely agree.
are you queer?
@John_Doesnt Nope, my fiance is a man.
a man who had a sex change
So you went third-party?
I'm very happy you realized what a disgrace democrats / liberals have become. They have all turned into extremists.
@SkipStop Democrats yes. Republicans also yes.
@holograph Most republicans have remained the same as always. But democrats have gone off the rails to the left. That's why moderates and republicans still bond and know how to communicate. Democrats have gone crazy and label anyone else as "Alt-Right". Even Joe Biden is too moderate from their point point of view. They don't see him as radical enough to be a democrat. There was even a chart which showed how the left is dominated by extremists while the right remained fairly stable. I saw it in a video but can't remember the source of the chart.
Or maybe they just want more "Free stuff" at someone else's expense, and conservatives don't want to pay for that.
Isn’t that what society is? I’m paying for schools and I don’t have children.
Well, how do you vote? Given what the school systems have become, please vote to defund them.
