Begoggle: Right wing nuts think everyone in the MIDDLE is a "liberal".
FARK rebel soldier: Conservatism doesn't conserve much of anything. Employment (in this country...), constitutional protections against presidential overreach, people having homes.
qorkfiend: hdhale: Actually it's more like, "change for change's sake is bad", which as we have seen over the the past 50 years has proven true.You're going to have to expound on that one a bit. What changes over the last 50 years do you deem to have been made solely "for change's sake"?
BullBearMS: James F. Campbell: BullBearMS: This must be cross posted to Politics, because I can't remember the last thread that had this many of the Politics tab Democratic party shills show up to defend the party doing something that not only is absolutely wrong, but is the exact opposite of what they claimed they would do when they ran for office.I'm not a Democratic party shill, you flaming sack of dog crap. When someone asks for proof, show it to them, you farking hypocrite. Don't make claims you can't back up. You're no better than conservatives when you do that shiat.Did you not notice where I posted links to the two tax rates prior to that? Or are you just going for personal attacks?
BullBearMS: Then they made the tax cuts they campaigned against permanent.
Satanic_Hamster: Week Six: Young Conservatives Bake Sale That Proves A Point About Affirmative Action, Which, By The Way, Martin Luther King Was Probably Against
Weaver95: i really don't like this whole 'colleges are librul' thing. sometimes it seems that the GOP just hates education in general.
Queensowntalia: I'm a super lefty hippie liberal, but I would take this course. I would like to understand conservative thought a little better. I would also probably enjoy debating with the professor. :)
pute kisses like a man: i had some conservative professors. there are a lot more conservative opinions in university, they're just not as loud about their opinions./ yet, i don't deny that the majority leans liberal.// once i got to law school, the number of conservative professors increased rather dramatically. and i went to a hippy communist jesuit law school. i mean, we had to study poor people law. lots of it. and do things for the poor. legal things.
It would be an interesting class if, in fact, it took an objective approach to conservative thought and policy, and left plenty of room for honest critique and investigation.Unfortunately, you can sum up the motivation behind conservative thought and policy in a single, simple word:
Somacandra: A course focusing surveying and comparing conservative political and philosophical thought would be fine. It might might be more appropriate for a Special Topics seminar, depending on how its taught. But it could be a good one. I'd be interested to look at Mr. Hayward's syllabus.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Isn't conservative thought basically, "Status quo is good, stick to your guns, change is bad"?
hdhale: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Isn't conservative thought basically, "Status quo is good, stick to your guns, change is bad"?Not exactly. Actually it's more like, "change for change's sake is bad", which as we have seen over the the past 50 years has proven true. More careful consideration of the changes we make in society leads to fewer incidents of having to backtrack because something didn't work out or had unintended consequences that outweigh the advantages.
EvilEgg: If the University was hiring a professor to push liberal propaganda there would be outrage Tuesday.
