Over the past few weeks, I have been thinking about how conservatives are still trying to destroy the world and I've come up with two truths about them:
A. Conservatives are the bad guys (and liberals are the good guys). I've explained The McClane Reply before and the more and more I think about it, the more it makes sense. While liberals aren't perfect, they are better than conservatives. I have yet to come up with a single issue in which conservatives are better than liberals. And I'm not saying that because I'm a liberal, I'm saying that because it's true. If you just stand back and look at the issues and where each side stands, there is no debate. Conservatives are pro-militarism, liberals are pro-peace. Conservatives are pro-corruption, liberals are pro-justice. Conservatives are pro-theocracy, liberals are pro-separation of church and state. Conservatives are pro-pollution, liberals are pro-environment. Conservatives are for the greedy corporations, liberals are for the unions and workers. Conservatives are racist/sexist/homophobic/xenophobic/bigoted, liberals are pro-tolerance. Conservatives are authoritarian in nature, liberals are libertarian in nature. Conservatives promote ignorance, liberals promote education. The list goes on. Politics is not a sport, it's not about cheering for your favorite team. One side is the obvious good guy and the the other side is the obvious bad guy. And no matter how much you hate another sports team, they aren't as bad as conservatives. So with that said, why would anybody want to be conservative? I think it's a combination of nationalism, power, fear, and stupidity that causes people to become conservatives. But also part of it has to do with the next truth.
B. Conservatives will say or do anything to get power. I have gotten into enough online debates with conservatives and have read and seen enough of their propaganda to know that conservatives live in an alternative reality where truth, decency, and reason don't matter. Conservatives will lie, cheat, smear, name call, project, threaten, steal, or whatever will make them win and brainwash people. And they have mastered the art of projection, pretty much everything they say about liberals is true about themselves. They will call liberals racists and fascists even though that is projection. And they don't care, this is because conservatives are bullies. And when you call them out for it, they bully you more. Bullies don't stop being bullies, they continue to bully because, well, they are freaking bullies and don't know any better. And conservatives will project and call liberals the bullies when we try to fight back. And because of this, conservatives will "win" debates and elections when logic, truth, and reason would have made the more liberal side win. And you don't see this from liberals because liberals try to be decent when it comes to debate. Well, nice guys usually finish last. And when liberals do fight back, they are met by another enemy, the "both sides are bad" crowd. Michael Moore has been called the "Limbaugh of the left", which is like calling MLK the "black George Wallace." There is no equating those on the left with those on the right, liberals are the good guys, conservatives are the bad guys. Deep down most Americans are liberals, the recent 99%/Occupy rallies reminds us that economically most Americans aren't millionaires or billionaires and they benefit overwhelmingly from liberal policies that help the poor and middle class. But conservatives still get elected and they get into office and screw the people who voted for them. Again, conservatives will lie and claim that those economic policies that help the rich will "trickle down" and help the less-wealthy, which is a load of crap. They will then blame Obama and the Democrats for the problems that they created. But conservatives don't give a levitating crap about the truth, they want to win and damn you if you stand in their way.
Conservatives will do this until liberals take a stand, fight back, and "take their toys away." Of course in the process of fighting back, conservatives will whine and claim that we are persecuting them and taking away their rights even though they want to persecute and take away our rights. But remember one thing, liberals are the good guys and conservatives are the bad guys, and liberals have justified righteous indignation.
