  • Liberals in general like change. They are also called progressives. Because they are change-motivated, they take in many view points and are willing to give new information the benefit of the doubt. They are more politically "risky" in that they will gamble with less-proven methods to reach a goal.

    Conservatives in general like to maintain tradition. They aren't political risk takers. They hold tight to old proven methodology. It's very threatening to have previously proven "values" called into question. They often view progressive risk as being too much risk.

    But the hateful hysteria is caused by the media and non-journalist talk show hosts that muck-rake and insight panic.

  • They are lacking in the common sense area of the brain and promote entitlement and huge government control instead of smaller government and individualism.I wouldnt say I hate liberals but the ideology.

  • Conservatives don't hate liberals, they are scared of them and what their whacky ideas will lead to, and in many proven cases, HAS lead to. Also conservatives notice that liberals are all about making OTHER people do what they (the liberals) want, while they live above it all, safely away from any chaos or confusion it costs the rest of the country/area/sector affected. Liberals are all about "do what I say, not what I do".

  • Because they make decisions based on emotion instead of facts, and then insist everyone else ignore the facts and agree with their emotions.

  • If a conservative doesn't like a statue in the bark, he doesn't look at it. If a liberal doesn't like a statue in the park, he goes to congress and if that doesn't make a difference, he stages a riot. If a conservative is homosexual, he finds himself a partner and enjoys his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he tries to make everyone around him cheer his homosexuality. If a conservative is an atheist, he doesn't go to church. If a liberal is an athiest, he wants to shut down the church.

  • This is silly. I don't hate anyone. So I don't agree with some people on some subjects. So what? Isn't that what makes our world so interesting? Can't we just learn a little from each other an not have to 'feel' anything about it?

    I think it's a PERCEPTION, Lori....some liberals are indeed convinced that conservatives are destroying the country. And the reverse can also be said about some conservatives believing the same.

    The REALITY? This nation is an IDEA that people have agreed upon together. NO ONE can destroy an IDEA. Period.
