    The Other Side...

    Pick as many as you wish, and define the "other side" as you choose.

    They are doing their best in what they see as the best interests of the country, but they are infested with idiots and are the devil.

    It came surprisingly easy, but yeah, that was where I was going with it. It ended lame though.

    I'm sitting in the middle, so my "other side" changes party lines depending on the topic.

    Re: The Other Side...

    The "other side" for me has some ideas I agree with, some ideas I'm half-and-half and has some I completely disagree on.

    How boring.

    I think the same, but I'm often in with the left, so I would try to anwer from that standpoint.

    It's impossible, though, to make a blanket statement. Some of them are complete idiots, but some of them have a good point . Take cpwill for instance. He's a smart person, and you can count on him to have something to talk about other than whatever Hannity got all hot and bothered about today. There's Conservative, who just when you think he's got something intelligent to add, falls back on "it's all Democrat's fault."

    You could say the same about some of the left (well, the converse I suppose).

    So I don't know how to vote on this one.

    Re: The Other Side...

    I answered:

    is mostly reasonable
    generally has the country's best interests at heart
    is doing its best
    is full of idiots
    is completely incompetent

    I consider the "other side" to be the entirety of conservatives/Republicans, not just the party leaders.

    I definitely believe most people in this country have the country's best interest at heart and are doing (what they perceive) as their best. We just disagree on what "best" actually is. I also believe most of them are reasonable most of the time with their views.

    I also believe that "the other side" is full of idiots and completely incompetent, but I feel that way about much of "my side" too, so that doesn't really mean much.

    I selected them all. Does not matter what, which side or who. They are all good and bad.

    What disturbs me most is when, in my purely subjective opinion, it seems people are following the party line rather than thinking it through. In my experience, no single party has all the right answers, so why follow the party line? I guess this reflects a Centrist stance, but then again, why follow that party line either? Sometimes the middle is flat out wrong and one side makes more sense overall. I just can't see how one side can have all the right answers, only some of the right answers.

    I hope and expect that my posting history is thoroughly confusing. Some might think I'm Conservative and others might think I'm Liberal. I'm not attached to a "side." I'm attached to what makes sense to me. So for me, the "other side" constantly changes.
