My one big break with the right wing is on the Anchor Baby question. Born on American soil, you are an American. No matter what the imigration status of the parents.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

The far left hates baseball?
I must not be getting my LEFTIST updates or something because I'm pretty indifferent towards baseball hell I'll watch a game or two if I'm bored.

As for soccer, boring doesn't begin to describe it. Watching 22 guys kicking a ball around for 90+ minutes and having the game end in a 0-0 tie is not my idea of excitement. And I don't think Americans hate soccer. We're more indifferent to it than anything else. And what this has to do with conservative vs liberal is anybody's clue but then again, leave it to the libtards to politicize everything.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

I've been on a baseball list-serv group for about a dozen years. I can unquestionably say that 90% of them are libs. That's probably not true for the entire fan base, but there are quite a few east-coast well-educated libs on that particular board.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

Team sports in general are left wing based. The us vs. them attitude between owners and players has been going on forever with the fans generally siding with the players nearly unanimously. Look no further than the 1987 NFL strike when the owners used "scab" players and the reaction of the fans, especially in Philadelphia where the unions showed up en masse against the 1 scab game played in Philly. Although I do think that attitude is changing a bit since some players today make in a years salary what it cost to buy an NFL franchise in the 70's. The fans no longer identify themselves with the players anymore. Most fans see players as greedy crybabies and a means to an end. There is no more loyalty. A player no longer does what it takes to play in the same city for their career. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera may end up being the last players to spend their entire careers with one team. So the scope of sports is changing yet the fan ideology is still slanted to the left.Deplorably Proud To Be An American
