It's cool to be a liberal again | MSNBC

Look at the title of the article. The number of people who call themselves liberal has risen to 23% ... which is still way lower than those who call themselves conservative and lower than those who call themselves moderate. How is it cool to be in the group hardly anyone wants to be in? Guess what folks, if you have to hype it like that it's not cool. :cool:

And then you have the even lower percentage of liberals that are the "progressives" aka socialist commie perverts that have somehow gained control of that democrat party.

Yes, and the independents, are soaring. People are starting to think for themselves. Good!

Record-High 42% of Americans Identify as Independents
Republican identification lowest in at least 25 years
by Jeffrey M. Jones

PRINCETON, NJ -- Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years but down from 36% in 2008.

Funny -- 25% identify as Republicans. Does MSNBC think that means it's cool to be a Republican?

That's still more than the number who identify as liberal. :rofl:

WTF? I didn't start this thread. What the hell is going on here?

I commented on another thread started by somebody else.

For some reason the Op seems to have been deleted.
Yes, it has. And somebody titled this thread "spin city".

Are the mods playing games?
Either that or someone has hacked into USMB.
I've seen a hacked discussion board before. The hacker took over control of the board. Didn't go in a screw around with topics but rather pasted a hacked announcement on the main page and nobody could even access the topics. the hacker actually wanted the owner to pay them to get the board's controls back.

What we have here isn't a hacker.

In the center of it all
Apologies, it was a mistake on our end. An attempt to move the thread to it's proper forum resulted in the thread being split.

It has been put back together, as you can see.

I accept full responsibility for the error. It was actually my campaign manager who did it, but I accept responsibility:eusa_whistle::eusa_whistle:

What makes you think that?

Because you missed the point they were making.

Which was? Please elaborate.





It is laughable to say that 23% of America identifying as liberal means "it's cool to be liberal again" ... especially since more people identify as Republican than do as liberal and I'm fairly sure I've heard people on the left mock 25% and call it a low number.

Whoever wrote that headline is grasping at straws.

But maybe if they say it's cool, people will feel cool and that self-confidence will radiate and more people will want to be liberal.
