    So I was watching some news show and there was a Republican on there who I never saw before and he acted offended and said that Republicans care just as much for the environment as Democrats do.

    Is that true?

    I find it very hard to believe.

    It most assuredly is true. You just need to get out more and meet real people.

    Of course there are some nutjob democrats who believe the earth would be better off without people. Are they as stupid as other democrats or are they short bus special?

    If you're talking about politicians, then none of them give a crap about the environment. If you are talking regular folk,
    then I would say that the Starbucks latte sipping "liberals" tweeting about the rainforest, care less about the environment than some good ol' boy that loves his local bayou.

    Cosnervatives tend to be conservationists...that is a whole different thing...and much more rational than being an environmentalist.

    Conservationism, properly understood, employs traditional values of environmental stewardship. A good steward takes care of what has been entrusted to him or her, thereby leaving an inheritance for the next generation.

    The mindset environmentalist is pantheistic - in which nature is deified and worshipped while the welfare of humans is prioritized beneath the animal and plant kingdoms and other aspects of the natural world. According to this worldview, humans exist separate from nature and act immorally when they disturb or disrupt nature.

    The ONLY THING sociopath democrooks care about is POWER.

    Pieces of shit like deanturd parrot this inane drivel from inner city shitholes governed by democrook sociopaths, and the people who actually enjoy nature pay for the upkeep and maintenance of wildlife and parks.

    Since its conservatives who live in rural areas, who pump their own well water, who hunt and fish spending a lot of money and time in the wild supporting natural resources.
    Who farm providing food for ungrateful city dwellers.
    Who deal with idiots from urban areas who illegally dump trash along a rural road.
    I would say we care about the environment more.

    My neighborhood is spotless, pristine, unlike the litter infested Twin Cities just 45 miles south.

    Liberals tend to think hiking a well maintained trail while carrying a backpack full of gorp and assorted freeze dried meals is "getting back" to nature.

    Instead of crying and whining about liberals, don’t you care anything about the environment?

    That was the question.

    Not about what you imagine liberals feel.
