This is a legitimate question. I’ve read threads on this forum for quite a few years now and it always seems right wing nuts, or the usual suspects "Known Republican Posters" start the hysterical political threads. Spamming the forum with political nonsense.

@BigEgo,
Well, if you equate "Known Republican Posters" to right wing nuts, you've set yourself a very easy case to prove.

Haven't seen your own political wisdom, by the way.

@BigEgo,
You can post on a train, but not post anything especially useful? I didn't know that about trains.

Not all Republicans are idiots. Bill Clinton and Pres. Obama are pretty smart, for instance.

My problem is not with Republicans. There haven't been any Republicans in office for years. There are right wing useless Tea Party piece of **** assholes who have commandeered the Republican Party and they are not idiots either but they are walking the Earth with no positive purpose whatsoever.

Your powers of observation are pretty horrible. Roger ain't a Republican and he's far from being a conservative.

@BigEgo,
In my opinion, if one uses the term "idiot" in the question, one is already closed to any other opinion.

The fact of the matter, in my opinion, is that Democrats and Republicans might have two different visions for America that is based on one big difference. Democrats might believe everyone should have a decent slice of the proverbial pie. Republicans might believe that only some people have earned the right to a decent slice of the pie. This is my opinion. And, that "decent" slice of the pie might encompass more and more things/entitlements when a liberal Democrat is questioned. In effect, many Democrats today might be envisioning a U.S. that is a very large Scandanavia, with cradle to grave benefits. Well, we do not have a homogeneous population like much of Scandanavia had, at the point of instituting socialism. We have a heterogeneous population, and some of us were not taught that we need to be concerned about all adult citizens equally. Maybe not nice, but true. So, politics for some has become the new religion?

Now remember, when the country was first started, the society was not based on equality, even for white folk. One had to earn one's bread, and then got to keep most of it for one's family. Today, it seems more people believe that everyone is entitled to "feel" part of some great entitled population, without having to rise to a better level of intelligence or ability. Talent and intelligence seems to be trivialized, other than perhaps sports figures.

Regardless, "idiot" might not be the correct question to ask, regarding Republicans. Maybe "old-fashioned" would be a better question. Since "conservatism" does refer to conserving something. In this instance a society that did exist in the past, to some extent.


By the way, even Social Security benefitted the business community, since children could be more mobile in their careers, since older parents now had an adjunct source of income (the two generations did not have to live under one roof). In effect, children could be utilized by the economy in a more flexible manner with senior entitlements, including Medicare. The business of the U.S. is business; which President said that?

Interesting statement. I have to agree that it is accurate. Isn't loving your neighbor part of most religions? I see politics, especially the type practiced in the extreme media on much of TV, as completely missing the concern for your fellow man. I think that when religion ' or politics' moves from a broad based activity that improves all of us to a local activity that improves some of us is when it changes from a religion to a self serving cult.

@Foofie,
It’s like kids in high school. Democrats tend to view Republicans as the bullies picking on the little kids, and the Republicans view the Democrats as the stoner kids. The Republicans see themselves as the kids working hard to learn stuff and get into a good college. The democrats see themselves as the nice kids that try to get along with everyone. There's truth to all of it, but people are always more complex than that.

@BigEgo,
There is an "Ignore" button, or, you can just ignore........

BTW, I have turned a lot of Repubs in my lifetime and I have flamed at wingers a lot of times too. Prefer not to in current times(flame); so do a lot of ignoring. Wingers will almost never say anything constructive, just flame.

I've really looked for ways to love the GOP and have never found one. Nonetheless I don't get anything like the absolute sense of loathing from pubbies that I get from demoKKKrats. In fact I basically vote against demoKKKrats i.e. for whoever has the best mathematical/probabilistic shot at preventing the demoKKKrat from holding the office in question.

Nothing makes me happier than the odd situation in which somebody like Jesse the Mind Ventura has a real shot at something.

I have about a baker's half dozen meaningful issues with pubbies, but pretty much everything dems ever do is an issue. Even the one or two issues which they're close to being on the right side of do not involve decent motives or any such, basically just something like the stopped clock which is right once every twelve hours.
