Thousands of Liberals Asked About Biggest "A-Ha" of Lives;Top Responses:"LSD," "Pot," and "Stealing"
Pundit Press ^ | 1/26/13 | Aurelius

Posted on 01/26/2013 8:40:54 AM PST by therightliveswithus

Yesterday, thousands of members of the site Reddit answered the question, "What was your biggest "holy **** why haven't I done this sooner" moment?" At the time this article was written, the question had an astounding 14,815 answers...

Decidedly more controversial answers, particularly illegal ones, garnered much more approval, however. Unsurprisingly, the answer "pot" received a tremendous amount of "upvotes," which show mutual agreement from other members.

User dogslike us responded to the question, in part:

Then at 22 I tried pot. Sooo much better than alcohol.
At the time of publication, this comment had received more than 3,000 upvotes. User morganinhd went for harder drugs and was still met with great approval. She wrote:
LSD. Mother of god it's fantastic.
The comment has received over 1,500 upvotes. Almost as frequent an answer than the previous two, however, was "pirating," or the act of downloading either music, films, video games, or pictures without the consent or compensation of the artist.

Sometimes it's not terribly difficult to see why President Obama was able to get the vote of under-informed liberals. This is one of those times.

Not that most of us didn't already know this but that should be a huge a-ha for the nation.

I was surprised none of them mentioned passion, love, or just plain sex.

I remember the first time I fired a full-bore 10mm. The quick snappy recoil, the flat trajectory, and near instantaneous target effect downrange. Compared to any other autoloader I’d ever fired, 9mm, .40, .45...it was like somebody put a laser blaster in my hand!

My biggest “A-Ha” moment was qualifying expert on the rifle range at Parris Island.

My greatest A-Ha moment was when Take On Me was released.

Which leads to a chicken or egg kind of argument: does pot use cause liberalism/leftism, or do libs and leftists naturally gravitate towards drug use? I’m sure there’s a number of closeted conservative drug users (probably more Libertarians than conservatives), but nevertheless I’m willing to bet your life that “recreational” drug use is lot more popular with self-identified libs than it is with conservatives.
