[quote=“gum”]Really, what is the point?
This board is infested with socialists. Any time there is any political discussion or comment, it always ends up the same. Ideology over reasoning, blind assumptions and hatred over understanding. Conservatives = bad. NDP = good. Duh.
I have been on other boards where the predominant way of thinking is more towards the Rush Limbaugh/Ann Coulter/Glenn Beck version of dumbed-down “thought”. Honestly it looks to me like the two sides have more in common with each other than they would care to admit. Choose a political affiliation, then follow it blindly right or wrong. Demonize anyone who disagrees with you. No room for shades of grey. Definitely no nuances and you are not allowed to have different takes on different issues. For example it is definitely not allowed to be pro-gay marriage and pro universal healthcare but also pro-law and order and anti-big government. No, you need to vote the party line all the way.
Here is a challenge for you. Try looking at issues with an independent mind. Try to understand the different sides of any issue. Try to ignore what “they” want you to think, instead really try and think for yourself. I know it will be hard, it may have been many years since you have done this, but try. As a special challenge, see if you can manage to hold a viewpoint that is contrary to your own self-interest.
Anyway best of luck.[/quote]
Okay champ. I’ve voiced my political opinions on here once and if you were to read the topic I support no political party. I think they are all a bunch of thieving pieces of shit. hundreds of thousands of dollars in ‘expenses’ seems a ‘bit’ excessive and I dont care which party you are part of.
I have my own ideas of the way things should be run and they align with no political party/politician but thats because I dont think a position as an elected representative should be designed for pigs looking to feed at the public trough.
That being said. Just because you’ve been called out on your baseless factless statements repetitively does not mean we’re the socialist hordes in fact I’d bet you’d find it to be quite the contrary. The idea that more prisons are needed to house prisoners from unreported crimes is pure bullshit. I’m not opposed to new prisons I’m opposed to being lied to and mr gays statement was a bold faced lie.
I’m in danger of going on a rant here so I’m going to cut myself off and say take your ball and go home whiner. Nobody cares about your conservative rhetoric or the sexual favors Mr day owes you for your continued allegiance.
