Ok, I don’t speak much on politics on here, but I’ll share some thoughts now.
I am slightly more conservative then anything, although I have some liberal views as well.
When people really believe that their political side (republican or democrat) is the absolute truth and the other side is complete bullshit without giving it even a second thought is both kind of cute, and really fucking annoying.’
Now when it comes to core concepts of each side, I can agree with a bit of each. Slightly more open and socially liberal, less judgmental, etc. Then on the other hand being more fiscally conservative, and having some core universal morals. But when it comes to politics itself, as in dealing with the people and the red tape, both sides have a LOT of bullshit. I mean A LOT.Hate to sound like the cliche conspiracy guy, but most politicians do lie about things, on both sides. So to trust any of them whole heartedly a little ridiculous. To think that either side is totally 100 percent foolish without using some critical thinking skills when you’re thinking of the opposing party is ridiculous. Worst part is, I see it SO often too. People just completely convinced that everything they think is right without even thinking twice about it.
I mean, extreme republicans and the whole gay marriage/abortion thing. It’s ridiculous. Gay people should get married, and even though I don’t like the idea of abortion all the time, women should be able to get it. With extreme democrats. trying to give everyone money or services? Seems nice in theory, but it definitely doesn’t work out all the time. So my point is, before you blindly accuse the other party of some crazy, hateful, spite filled accusation, stop and think about it. where did you hear this from? Does it make sense?
Also HUGE pet peeve of mine. When liberals/democrats always try to criticize fox news about how unbalanced and biased it is, I’m just like. “Really? REALLY?!” Like MSNBC, CNN, and ABC aren’t also massively liberally biased? Get serious, open your eyes.
I may turn this into a logic log.
