Mike Chewbacca: My derptastically freeper uncle started debating with me about the legalization of marijuana. I finally got him to agree that the only REAL negative effect marijuana has on someone is imposed by our own government because it's illegal. Meaning, smoking pot in and of itself is relatively harmless, and the only harm that will befall a user is imposed on them by the state because pot is illegal. So my conclusion was, "Great, now that we agree on that, let's legalize it, regulate it, and tax it. " His response? "I believe that regulating it is wrong, so therefore it should remain illegal." Epic facepalm on that one. I think I still have a mark.


Mind boggling.

whidbey: I alone am best: What's a "classical liberal"?

People like John Locke and Adam Smith (new window)

Yeah well, they also believed that society had an obligation to help the less fortunate.

That isn't you.


That isn't who you believe me to be. That's a perception and not the truth. You don't know me and are perceiving me to be some sort of uncaring, baby kicking, puppy crushing monster based on nothing but your personal bias. I also think youre interchanging less fortunate with those who are able, but refuse, to improve their lot in life. There is a big difference. It once again comes down to those that I feel are truly suffering and not just taking a free ride and you thinking that those who take that free ride are really less fortunate.

o5iiawah: technicolor-misfit: The bottom line is this, if conservatives are such swell people, why do they so consistently rally around such awful hate-mongering people and terrible policies, and why are they always on the opposite side of every bit of historical progress we've experienced?

Civil rights, women getting the vote, blacks getting the vote, gays getting married, interracial marriage... you name it, conservatives have opposed it. If they're so great, then why?

Are you serious?

It was 4 democratic senators, Byrd, Al Gore senior and 2 others who filibustered civil rights legislation
It was a republican congress who fought tooth and nail with Wilson to get women's suffrage passed
It was southern democrats who passed Jim Crow laws which required men and women apply with the state for a marriage permit
President Eisenhower sent troops to the south to integrate schools, much to the chagrin of democratic governors


Finally someone who understands, It doesn't matter what the Southerners are calling themselves this decade the people haven't changed a bit.

o5iiawah: Salt Lick Steady: o5iiawah: So woodrow wilson would be a republican today? Are you hearing yourself???

Holy christ you're dense.

In other words, you have no retort to the fact that the liberal/progressive hero woodrow wilson fought endlessly against the rights of women to vote.

You have no retort to the fact that early black civil rights leaders who championed individual rights and liberty were drowned out by the militant race-baiters that make up the black movement today.

You got nothing but name-calling


Firstly, if you insist on yet another response (as plenty have been given already to your assertions), who on earth calls WW a liberal/progressive hero? Other than conservatives, of course.

Secondly, the point people are making is that the parties - Democratic and Republican - change drastically over time in their focus and ideologies. Would WW be considered a Republican by today's standards? Well, considered by whom? A Democrat? A Republican? The point that was being made is that there is a distinction between those two titles and the labels of "conservative" and "republican."

Thirdly, what in the hell are you talking about with regard to early civil rights leaders?

Lastly, yes, I said that you were dense. This was of course based on current empirical evidence. Is it a name? Sure. Is it yours? Absolutely.

Salt Lick Steady: I know. But hey I've been thinking of starting my own study to determine the relative bs levels of conservatives versus liberals. I think what I'd do is ask questions that make no sense and see how long it takes for the questionee to call out its inanity.

"If a tree falls in the forest and makes a sound, is there anyone there to hear it?"

"Rudy Jones: hero or martyr?"

"On a scale of one to ten, with 10 being perfect and 1 being really good, how would you rate this survey?"


On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being 10 and 10 being 1, how awesome is Batman?

If you count electoral delegates for the President, then Republican. My point is that it is the same group of people, from the same place, with the same political views. They just changed what they call themselves, it is not that complicated.

The Southern Strategy is an abomination, but of course it has worked pretty well.

I admit I don't understand conservatives. I have MS and have gotten in fights with fark conservatives repeatedly over the role of the government in my neurologists office when it comes to prescribing marijuana. They've argued for years, and even now, that the federal government has a role in my doctors office. But now with the healthcare bill, they're arguing in one thread that the government has a role in my doctors office, then in the other thread they're railing against how the government shouldn't be there. I don't get it. They argue that the federal government should be banning gay marriage, and in some "conservative" circles, that the federal government should still be banning gay sex, but then they talk about how they're all about small government and getting out of people's business. As a small business owner, the conservatives tell me that they love me greatly and want me to hire more people, but then the only tax cut the GOP fights against is the payroll tax cut, the one that most directly affects my ability to hire people. I'll be the very first to stand in line and tell you that I don't understand modern conservatism.

You do not know poverty, and suspect that people who are poor are just bucking the system.

/pew is just a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic, greedy, fascist, nazi trolls!

All this tells me is that conservatives don't know how to use computers

And we go right back to liberals not understanding conservatives. You have no interest in hearing a viewpoint that isn't in line with what you already believe, so it seems irrational and stupid that conservatives don't also wish to ignore and block out all viewpoints that they disagree with. If conservatives don't block/unfriend/ignore those who disagree with them then, in your mind, the only logical reason is that they are too stupid to figure out how to block/unfriend/ignore that person.

Brilliant...


Maybe that's because we believe in liberty and equality for all, and your side posts shiat straight out of an X-Men comic issue devoted to dealing with prejudice. When you call me a slut for wanting birth control because your God says otherwise, I'm going to seriously consider defriending you, because I don't want to hear someone's bigotry. And once you start in on racism, that's it.

If your position is inherently evil, and I mean evil in the moral sense, I don't know why you expect other people to listen to you.
 
2012-03-26 04:09:17 PM
I guess it depends on the "liberal" in question. I have no trouble understanding the frames of reference and foundations of beliefs of most strands of conservatism, but I've been interested in the psychology of political ideology for a long, long time, and I'm not a "liberal" in the polarized American tradition, and I think subscribing to any ideology makes it difficult to comprehend another.

From the reviews I've read of this book, it seems that conservatives really aren't thinking at all (nor are liberals) but conservatives additionally are less likely to be questioners because of their higher value on authority and tradition. Thanks for writing this book, Dr. Romero.

True. Ask me whether certain conservative Farkers think that death panels are real, Obama is trying to take away their guns or if David Ayers wrote both of Obama's books and I honestly and truly would have no farking clue what they would answer.

Conversely, they would know my answers (as a Liberal) quite predictably.

CPennypacker: skullkrusher: CPennypacker: skullkrusher: Mike Chewbacca: beta_plus: Because it's not racist to say that this man is white because he is half white:

Hispanic is an ethnicity, not a race. We call George Zimmerman white because he is in fact white.

yet we call anti-immigration crusaders racists. Weird

I don't understand why Zimmerman has to be white

he's 1/2 latino and 1/2 white. He did something bad so we call him white. If he were the victim we'd call him latino.

Latinos can hate black people too


can and often do
