    In almost any discussion I attempt with Liberals, they always bring the subject back to how much they hate President Bush, the war in Iraq is wrong, President Bush is wrong, Bush supporters are stupid, President Bush is wrong, everything wrong in the world is America's fault, President Bush is wrong, etc.

    There seems to be no point in trying to have a discussion. I have yet to meet a Liberal who will make any concessions.

    Nope--only point is honing your debate skills and solidify your own point of view. They have nothing to offer.

    Needless to say it's a two way street. I have yet to meet any conservatives who have openly admitted to converting over to liberalism after conversing with me, but one can always hope :mm:

    Makes you wonder what the basic differences are doesn't it ?

    I have no idea really, but it probably has to do with the way we were raised. For myself, I don't really consider myself that ideological. Edmund Burke seems to think that conservatism is gradual reform rather than sudden change-- not tearing down the accomplishments of the past for the fads of the present. Being concerned with past and future generations. If so then I'm a conservative. Others say that being conservative is synonomous with individual freedom, belief in free markets. If so then once again I'm a conservative. But look up the world liberal or progressive in the dictionary and I'm that too. So I guess I'm just confused.

    My general feeling is that conservatives (realizing that the line has to be drawn somewhere) have chosen to take responsibilty for their own lives and encourage others to do the same instead of expecting gifts or blaming others

    ...and that's precisely how it should be.

    I hardly think Warren Buffet or George Soros expect gifts or blame others :)

    The ironic thing is that states with higher incomes and lower divorce, abortion rates are also the more Democratic ones.
