    Are you speaking of liberals inside the country, or our enemies outside the country that really don't need reasons, just excuses?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I suppose the point is not whether what is being said is true or not but whether the poster believes it to be true.

    And that's not unusual. There are many who post opinions based on their beliefs and discard any evidence which doesn't support their beliefs.

    Agreed, I think we all do that from time to time....Far too much common sense has been taken out of supposed 'critical thinking' skills that the education system is supposed to instill today, and been replaced by ideological dogma, and hyperbolic rhetoric. All in the hopes of maintaining GPA, and being in the 'in cliche'....

    Like you who ignored several posters who gave you information that you didn't want to acknowledge as valid because you thought it was proposed by a liberal (when it in fact turned out to be a conservative).

    You're assumption that other people ignore or accept information solely based on 'ideological dogma' is based on a projection of your own state of mind onto other people.

    I tend not to discount things unless there is a blatant bias...from either side. I like facts.
