I want to drill now and cut dependence on foreign oil.
Nooo, never, they might destroy the environment.
Haven't decided yet.
I have read enough of his posts to see the depth of hatred and if my brother hadn't just died I probably would have just passed on by his response as I have done many times before. This time I just couldn't.
My brother was a flaming lib. He couldn't stand Bush and swore he was going to move to the UK (although he never did and never would, just like 99.9% of DU). He was just "wired" different than me because we were brought up exactly the same. By saying he was wired different i don't mean that something was wrong with him, I just mean that we had different world views. We both wanted the same thing in the end, we just disagreed on how to get there. His politics played no part in my love from him and if he agreed with me 100% on all issues I wouldn't have loved him any more.
I don't think someone like Eyelids (or the type of liberals that post at DU) can even wrap their minds around the fact that someone can be a good person if they differer politically. They have a stereotype of a "Rethuglican" in their mind and they will hold onto it until the day they die. I suspect his reply to me was projection because he can't possible understand how he could love someone who thought different politically. I see some of the same traits in a few of my fellow conservatives on the boards and it really bothers me. Not to the degree of the rabid hatred that Eyelids seems to hold for us but to a degree that has to go beyond politics. I suspect Eyelids hatred comes from deep down in his soul and for that I pity him. Yet I don't feel enough pity to want to help him, I personally hope he reaps everything he sows.

Do you guys actually make these posts with straight faces? I mean come on, there's more hate and racism on this website than I could possibly spew in a lifetime.
Love this poll. Its good to see the vast majority of CUers are sane.
I really dont understand how anyone with half a brain can back Obama's plan of no new drilling, no new refineries, but more taxes. Yea, that will help the middle class.
I am new here although I was at PU for a while with a fair number of posts. I try to read Eyelids but he seems to just not be able to get a coherent thought out and seems to have a hard time separating politics from personalities
JMHO from what I have been reading the past few weeks
