    People who identify as "very conservative" don't really fit into a well-defined group. Many of them could be the stereotypical KKK, southern racist or they could be a classical conservative in the mold of Edmund Burke; I don't see this kind of diversity in contemporary liberalism - they are a conformist group of ideologues who follow the Democratic elites and academic leftists lockstep. I think their intolerance stems from their ideological rigidity, which necessitates intellectual contradictions and hypocrisy, which further necessitates character assassination and childish insults as a substitute for substance-based criticisms.

    In fact, can you link to you demonstrating this "tolerance" of thier viewpoints?
    I'm not sure what you mean. One can be "intolerant" of a specific viewpoint without being intolerant of opposing viewpoints in general, which is the point I'm trying to make.

    Again conservatives never use childish insults as a substitute for substance base critisizms?


    Sure we see this a lot here. This thread starter is a prime example of a partisan hack, but to suggest it is a liberal only issue. I mean come on man.....

    Then you can provide an example of you not being intolerant of opposing view points.....

    My mother and sisters are avid readers of romance novels, 8 books a month to them wouldn't be much to them.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Imagine that. Writing a memoir AFTER your presidency.

    Obama wrote his first one after finishing third grade.

    I don't know any Democrats who self-identify as "liberal", anyway;
    I am a liberal and a democrat. You need to get out more if you have not met any one who self identifies as both.

    the people who do assume that designation are mostly partisan Obamaphiles who hijacked the label from JFK; if that's not what you are, then you should assume a different label, because "liberal" doesn't mean what it actually means anymore...

    Sorry, but for the people I know, this is the kind of thing that gives us glee. It is our one of our treasure chests. Oh well, I guess I am one of the few who actually see the use of a Presidential memoir.

    I don't think I was suggesting that it's only a liberal issue, just that it is pretty much standard operating procedure for them; of course, conservatives can act petty and immature, too - I would never suggest otherwise.

    Then you can provide an example of you not being intolerant of opposing view points.....
    I'm not trying to be obtuse or anything, but I'm not sure what you're wanting me to do here. I'm a little confused.

    P.S. - Observe how our conversation has been quite cordial and constructive, and that neither of us have had to engage in intellectual dishonesty to make our points. Coincidence? I think not... : P
