Evan Sayet, a former writer for Bill Maher, details his journey from liberalism to conservatism in a talk at the Heritage Foundation.
This is a great explanation of the left. Everyone should listen to it.
This has been making the rounds and trully is a MUST see!
It's 45 minutes long but it is so very worth it.
This guy (Evan Sayet) explains Liberalism with such clarity and precision that I was astounded.
It's amazing how sexist and primitive some liberal men can be. And they think they'll never get called on it because of their political status.
Yep. It's just that even when they do get called on it, they turn it so that their accuser is the baddie for being so judgemental.
To those who haven't seen this, it is clear this individual speaks from both heart and mind, and is even funny at times. I expected a laugh track. Instead I heard a well-explicated rationale for liberalism's irrationality -- and an appreciative and understanding conservative assessment of today's WoT and "culture war." Well worth saving and showing to a liberal friend one day. It's on YouTube.
Excellent "article," BTW.

conservative at 40 you have no mind"
Though he did not say it explicitly, he made it clear that we are in a war for the soul of our nation. Lord help us!
This talk could be the pivot point in the culture war.
Rather than viewing people as liberals and conservatives, I'd suggest a three-way division:
Put things in those terms and the nature of people's progression will become clear.
