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.
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.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?
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!!
I'm honestly shocked you hadn't put this piece of fiction up sooner.I was surprised that I even needed to put it up.
Again...your words...not ours.What amazes me is that you guys really thought you were ideologically pure.
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.You honestly didn't know that conservativism and fascism were kissing cousins?
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.
Pure projection on your part. Sad indeed.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.
How can you claim to know what the pitfalls are when your whole premise of what Conservatism is...is based on a lie?Let me ask you a question. If you don't know the pitfalls of your ideology...how are you supposed to avoid them?
Novaheart, yourself, Lanie/Bridget. noonwitch, Linda#'s, Arroyo Doble.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?
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.
