    There was an MIT study done and it was found that the Conservatives on CU are the smartest people on the Internets and among the top 1% worldwide. Converting was easy after finding that out.

    The lefts ideology is everything I stated it was.. Learn some history and you will realize that such is the case. You watch too much MSNBC, and listen to your liberal teachers too much. There is no thinking for yourself. You think textbook jargon is correct? Boy, you have a lot to learn about the real world.
    You know what it is so your are a registered independent? The ideological spectrum doen't make you a republican, democrat, or independent, it simply illistrates the end position of each ideology--and in detail the motivations in between. Also, if you are independent why do you care what the end position of conservatism is on the ideological spectrum? Are you conservative just not a republican?

    You didn't answer why you were a liberal. From the sounds of it, if a study alone was enough, you were a conservative all along and just didn't know it. That's not a converson just revelation...

    I was a stone-cold idiot.

    I knew nothing of the world or politics or finance or the economy or literature or religion or the arts or women or history or the military or how to tie my shoes. I only listened to what others said and never thought for myself. That's why I identified as a liberal. I'm sure you can relate.

    Actually not, my parents were conservative and that is how I was born and raised. It was only when I started thinking for myself, and reading, that my actually ideology became to develop. I never met anyone who was actually a liberal that got there by by listening to what others had to say and never thought for themselves. That is the perscription for being a conservative not a liberal. I suspect you were a conserative all along but just too ignorant to realize it...

    WTF...did you just use "I know you are but what am I" in your reply? My goodness, you're a bigger tool than I thought.

    Actually, I stopped being a liberal when I finally figured out that people were constantly fucking with me. Oy.

    I'm bored now.

    I thought CU was set up for debate but I don't see any other liberals here. It seemed like there were quite a few when I was here before. Did they run off or get banned?
    Hey, Liberals can sign up here anytime they want to, it's good for debate. I've been on a couple of Lib sites openly as SarasotaRepub and have been fine. I got called all kinds of names and attacked all the time. I ignored it, and that usually pissed them off even more.

    If you are a Lib and come here of course you are going to take some heat. Take it and have fun or leave, I'm not going to beg people to post. Money/Donations yes, posts no.

    Linda#'s and noonwitch are two current lib members and there have been others, they have even been mods. Lanie is also a lib but she comes and goes.

    I'm honestly only going to ban someone if they become a troublemaker. We've had DUers on many times in the past but they always
    end up self-destructing no matter how hard they try.

    The big difference between us and DU is we let everyone on. And people do get carried away, both sides, at times. Hey, that's what makes it fun!!
    May the FORCE be with you!

    You're right...it's the same old repeat of the Liberal lie.

    I was surprised that I even needed to put it up.
    I'm honestly shocked you hadn't put this piece of fiction up sooner.

    What amazes me is that you guys really thought you were ideologically pure.
    Again...your words...not ours.

    You honestly didn't know that conservativism and fascism were kissing cousins?
    They aren't. And to say otherwise it to completely and totally ignore history and reality. Your little theory of Conservatism and NAZI-ism being "kissing cousins" only works in the vacum of the classroom. Just like the only place Socialism/Communism every work is in theory in a classroom.

    When applied to real world scenarios and situations...neither stand up to reality nor prove to be what they are sold as. But the problem is you've never taken the time to study the real effect of National Socialism (NAZI-ism) or what the people that implemented it demanded. To do so would not only require you to get outside of your little bubble of academe it would also force you to realize that the NAZI's and todays Liberal Democrats are the "kissing cousins". Which would throw off your whole Bu$hitler "Republicans are brown shirts" meme.

    And that bit of truth to a hardcore Libtard like you is like Holy Water to a vampire.


    This is the problem when you isolate yourself from society...you loose touch with reality and create a false sense of who you are. Very sad.
    Pure projection on your part. Sad indeed.

    Let me ask you a question. If you don't know the pitfalls of your ideology...how are you supposed to avoid them?
    How can you claim to know what the pitfalls are when your whole premise of what Conservatism is...is based on a lie?

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Novaheart, yourself, Lanie/Bridget. noonwitch, Linda#'s, Arroyo Doble.


    That's six more people of a different political philosophy than would be allowed to openly post at Kos or DU.

    Your problem is that you've ONLY "debated" among other Liberals. So you've lived in a bubble. You don't know how to adequately handle when your little pet beleifs and philosophies are challenged. What passes for debate where you are at is merely an echo chamber.

    What you are expereiencing here...and what seems hard for you to wrap your brainwashed mind around...is real...honest debate.

    And if it's too hard for you to comprehend and keep up with....


    <----- DU is that way.

    .
    I've never debated liberals...what would be the point? As for a bubble; until this board I had never heard that fundamentals of Political Science and Political Ideologies were somehow a left wing commie plot. You guys are in the bubble and for the life of me I don't see what you have to gain. Why does it matter if Fascism shares traits with Conservatism? That doesn't mean the two equal each other any more than Liberalism equals Communism. They don't and that wasn't my point. But if you are going to sit here and pretend that your ideology has not flaws then the question I am asking is by what means do you have to avoid the pitfalls of your ideology. That is the bubble my friend. I know the pitfalls of my ideology so can avoid them. Can you say the same?
