And it wasn't my intention to allege that the right is racist, it's inflammatory language of some that leads to the other side painting you all as such in order to discredit what I see as valid points. I agree with certain aspects of conservatism, but your point gets muddled by childish name calling and intolerance, even if those voicing these views are in the minority.
So my point that we should have genuine debate is discredited because I'm not partisan enough?
I'm sorry if I come across as a shit disturber, I just don't want people thinking I'm some through and through liberal. I agree with aspects of both ideologies and it bums me out when we obscure meaningful discussion about real issues because we're too busy bickering about whose side is better. I don't believe either side has all the answers and if we want productive progress to happen I believe working together is more effective than the brand of spiteful and divisive politics we have now.
Yeah my first post on this thread was a bit antagonistic I agree. Sorry for that. I was trying to point out that it's words like muscum that lead to some people seeing the right in an intolerant or prejudiced light.
Solar you can say that about every single religion that exists. I'm an atheist so I personally think they are all farces. I do think that they all deserve respect as all religions have their psychotic fringe and are mostly made up of good people. Just like any group, including liberals, conservatives, atheists, Arabs, Americans and so on.
