    Into simplistic and stupid political ideologies such as Liberals and conservatives? If we had any brains we would broaden our political thinking beyond ideological thinking and support for self interest and lobbyist groups and the whole nation would be better. Conservatives are generally all about self and obsessed with the dog eat dog ultra-capitalist state of mind. In order for them to maintain their status as haves they constant create more have nots and broaden that gap between themselves and have-nots, plus the religious zealots amongst them, a la Huckabee type people, wish to tell others how to live their lives. Neo-liberals generally have no regards for morals, its because of them that homosexuality is so widespread in America. They basically hypocrites, as long as they have their money and status they're fine and get lax when fighting for others. The most racist people here in the south were liberal so called Democrats.


    Overall this country is mostly ruled by Conservative, ultra-capitalists, so why not have a third party to balance things out, like a Socialist party?

    The Bass referred to Catholics as being part of a cult and wants homos to die because of the scriptures...geez, man, I've no clue why we Americans divide ourselves.

    This is off topic but the Bass will respond nonetheless, Catholic Americans are fellow Americans to the Bass, a person's personal beliefs in religion should be apart from politics, or if they're incompatible with politics, that person should stay away from political discussions totally. The Bass believes Catholics to be a cult, so what, but thats another topic, what the bass is speaking on is politics, and no, the Bass has never stated at any time that he wants homos to be dead, thats contrary to what the Bass believes as a Christian.

    I think we divide ourselves because it's really boring to all be on the same side. What in the hell would we talk about ? Politics is the last acceptable arena to be on a side that is politically correct. If you are on any other side you're labeled some kind of satan like racis ,sexist, etc etc etc. Hating the other political party is still ok and even encouraged.

    What the Bass is really saying is that these labels such as liberal and conservative are merely useless terms and ideologies and that Americans shouldn't have to make a choice between these two only. It is possible to have more inclusive politics instead of the divisive liberal vs conservative crap. Thats why politics in this country has been stagnant with the same old politics and same old problems

    It's not off topic. Your personal beliefs are divisive by nature. If you call a Catholic a member of a cult, do you honestly think they are going to overlook that because you're both Americans? :cuckoo: The Bass is naive.

    Secondly, you believe in the scriptures and cite them as backing up your beliefs regarding homosexuality. However:

    Leviticus 20: 13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

    If you don't believe that homos should be put to death then you're guilty of cherrypicking the scriptures.

    Sorry Mr. Bass. I was just taking the "division" thingy a bit further than just firing up another political machine with another attractive name.

    No where in New Testament does it say to put homos to death. Jesus came to stop all of that. The Bass isn't a Jew so why are you bringing that up for?


    Catholics are a cult but religion isn't the focus, its politics. Stop trolling the Bass' posts with ad-hominems.

    I think our current divisions don't fit very well for who we are, but differences of opinion are pretty much just one of the parts of being human, vs brainless insects like bees.

    And I am one who believes this kind of friction makes things move better. The constant to and fro of insults, vituperation, and sometimes, when no one is looking, an idea or two makes all of us just a bit sharper and a lot better off. When only one is doing the thinking, or everyone is thinking the same thing, than that thought is usually pretty dumb.
