dantheman195: Wow, the liberal derp in here is thick
Dinki: 5 things that conservatives appear to consider virtuesGreedSelfishnessreligious intoleranceself pityignorance
Dwight_Yeast: hubiestubert: 1) Tolerance2) Compassion3) Being nicer4) Self esteem5) DiversityYeah, these are destroying EVERYTHING...Well, to some extent American liberals doing those things (trying to be helpful, fair and inclusive) has helped create create the modern American conservative movement./Every time I see a Conservative demanding that religion be treated as science in schools, all I can think is "Well, there's the "multculturalism run rampant we were warned about!"
Emposter: Conservatives have been persecuting and killing people they don't like, denying and even criminalizing science, and abusing the public trust for personal gain while at the same time espousing empty promises about helping the less fortunate for most/all of recorded history.
DarwiOdrade: One virtue that liberals can never be too extreme about: not giving a single fark about whatever Hawkins is currently blubbering about.
A Cave Geek: Oh, goodie, another 'liberal vs conservative' thread.Look, philosophically, reality is somewhere in between the two extremes. At the moment, it's closer to the liberal view of the world, but that's not to say that the conservative philosophy is completely without merit. (Their current implementation of that philosophy is another matter)Basic virtues That both parties agree are valid and good for society in general: (In varying degrees)- Generosity- Hard work- Responsibility- Creativity- Courage- Freedom- Integrity- Honor- Honesty- Respect- KindnessNow, where things get really messy is when you start rating those virtues. While the GOP values generosity, conservatives don't value generosity as highly as they value freedom or responsibility. Liberals tend to value kindness and generosity more highly than blunt force 'honesty'.From what I've seen of the GOP, their top virtues that are valued above all others are Freedom, Honor, and Hard work. All other virtues are relegated to a 'if we have time for them'. From what I've seen of the liberals, their top three are: Kindness, generosity, and Creativity. Most others appear to be an 'if we have time for them'.Like I said earlier, however, I think the 'perfect balance' of these virtues is much closer to the liberal view than the conservative one.

Eugenics, communism, prohibition, the Vietnam War, the anti-GMO crowd, etc...
