Confession: Conservatives irritate me

Posted by   + Show Post

Especially around election time.  The whole, "Anyone but Obama" and "Well why doesn't Super Obama wave his magic wand and change everything like he told you he would with his hopey changey speechs".

Ok really people, Repubicans are ruining this country.  Wake up and smell the roses.  The war on women, 2 unfunded wars, classism, ruling with the Bible and "god", making this country a "Christian" nation, and tearing the foundation of this country up because they rule with fear, emotions and a moral obligation to make life a living hell for liberals (just to name a few).

Why can't people stop voting using their emotions and fear based rhetoric and actually look in a damn history book and see what conservatism is doing?  Educate yourself damn it!

 

Sorry vent over.

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes. Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes. Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain that is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain. ~Butthole Surfers

I really just don't understand it.  I was over on the Election 2012 Debate and Discussion board and I saw so much stupidity like one person who actually posted saying Republicans are for women's rights and another who said that Obama is trying to make the White House look like an Arabic home.  I have yet to see a liberal/Democrat bring anything to the table that is not a legitimate point.  Then again I did read a piece somewhere that showed how conservatives vote based mainly on emotion and liberals vote on logic.

Oh here it is!

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/intersection/2011/09/07/your-brain-on-politics-the-cognitive-neuroscience-of-liberals-and-conservatives/

"Recent converging studies are showing that liberals tend to have a larger and/or more active anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC—useful in detecting and judging conflict and error—and conservatives are more likely to have an enlarged amygdala, where the development and storage of emotional memories takes place.

Also I think a lot of conservatives are one-issue voters. if everyone looked at the big picture instead of voting for a single issue (guns, abortion, Christianity) nobody would ever vote republican.

 I agree, it would be nice for one vote if people used their brains & not their emotions, fear and bibles. There is a seperation of church and state for a reason, and then allowing someone to be president and say they will rule by their bible, egads. that's downright scary - free rights go out the window.
