(as if you didn't know that already)
Was arguing with some of them on a certain site (that I won't say) and they were telling me with dead seriousness that Obama will get reelected with 300 electoral votes. I believe this will be a close 50% vote election for whoever wins.
Even worse, these nutcases were actually going so far as to claim Obama is a centrist (!) and the Republican candidates are all extreme right wing fascist fanatics. All my efforts to explain that they're not anything but meek centrists were in vain.
Frankly, I'm bored as you-know-what about the whole thing and I really don't care who the Republican guy is that runs in the fall. Romney, Santorum, Gingrich. Doesn't matter. I'll vote for any of them if it gets rid of the Kenyan Klown.
I’ve heard stuff like “Oh well, he bailed out insurance companies instead of have single payer health care” and “He’s done nothing to undermine the capitalist system. He’s therefore a capitalist.”
1. Obama and the far left wing of the DNC (Pelosi and all of them) wanted SPHC, but the Tea Party and nervous moderate Democrats prevented it
2. He’s done plenty against the capitalist system, but apparently they think you can’t be a leftist unless you’re waving a red flag and humming the Internationale
I would say that conservatives are based in reality before they are based in reason and logic. Sometimes tradition doesn't know exactly why things work, but it prefers what works nevertheless. The accumulated wisdom of generations of experience often trumps the reason and logic of the moment. I think on many issues liberals actually do use reason and logic, but it is not a fully informed reason and logic, hence the almost inevitable unforseen consequences and blowback effects when they apply it. The real difference in liberals and conservatives is humility -- that is, the acceptance that reality is often bigger than our reason and logic. Conservatism respects the unknown unknowns in a way that liberalism in its foolish arrogance does not.
I quit arguing with those bastards. It’s a waste of time. The only thing that is ever going to change their minds is when their redneck neighbor(me)defends them from havoc when the SHTF.
Better yet, they should be asked “If you think Obama is a weak centrist, why do you feel he’s worthy of your vote or reelection? Let alone to get 80% of the vote.”
You can say that again.
Quite true. My SIL and her family (more her than them) are prime examples of the behavior you describe.
Yes left wing liberalism is a mental decease because only people with psychological problems would passionately advocate stupid ideas and then do the opposite in real life because the stupid ideas that they are advocating are against human nature and hence they cannot abide by the foolishness they preach. For example all left wing liberals advocate higher taxes in the name of common goods but the SOB's try every possible way under the sun to pay less taxes.
Liberals will be the first to go and the first back like 3 hours later to eat us like they do now. Munching AND voting in the afterlife.
That's mighty big of you. Just don't tell them where your stash is. Never, ever trust a lib.
Liberals are from Uranus.
I can think of better ways to deal with libs, but folks want to put you in jail for it. Strange, but true.
And in other news, water is wet.
Yep - when it becomes clear, I usually break off with, "I refuse to conduct a battle of wits with an unarmed person". It doesn't win anything except for to piss 'em off and wipe the inane sanctimonious grin off their faces, but that's enough - my needs are simple.
If hour want to make a conservative angry tell him a lie.
If you want to make a liberal angry tell him the truth .
One told me that Obama failed to produce single payer health care or stop corporations from controlling the political process. Although you have to remember when a liberal says “corporation”, it’s usually a code word for “Jew”.
They get all their news and opinion thorugh the networks from Media Matters and Center for American Progress, and various lefty websites. You might as well be speaking to them in Urdu, Hindi or Swahili!
