    i have become more tolerant on social issues......or at least on most of them

    I have become less tolerant when dealing with stupidity.....and the brazen entitlement mentality of some

    I expect people to put in the effort.....i expect them to try and do the right things

    i am disappointed way too often nowadays

    In my experience people learn to be more tolerant as they get older until they reach the age when their cognitive abilities start to decline, at that point every change or unexpected event seems more confusing and difficult than they can handle.

    I'm the most liberal of everyone I know who's politics I know or can reasonably guess. My entire family, wife's entire family, and most people I know are pretty solidly Republican/Conservative.

    Ha! That's how I feel about debating abortion. lol

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    DP polls are indicative of nothing but DP, which is not representative of much of anything.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

It is true for many shallow people, but not everyone.

    There are also those who give up on their ideals and compassion because they decide that no solution can work after they experience that making the world better while trying to overcome so many people's resistance due to fear of change and/or greed and dealing with bureaucracy and incompetence is very difficult. Conservatism is largely the lazy way out of trying to acheive a better world.
    There's a lot of people who just never grow up. Getting older and becoming more mature are two entirely different things. There are plenty of people who give up on their liberalism because they fail to see any way to bring it to fruition. Their idealism has no realism. They may still report being liberal but they realize that there is no actual path to their liberal utopia. There is no "better world". There is no perfection that we will ever achieve, no matter how hard we try. There is only reality and the sooner people deal with that and give up on their fantasies, the better we'll all be.

    I could be wrong, but I believe it's a thread where you challenge people to formal debates. If you're so sure my politics are infantile, then I don't see why you'd have to worry.

    I have no idea. I honestly don't talk about politics IRL.

    Re: How many liberals to you actually know?

    I'd say 70 % is liberal in Belgium, if we're talking about progressive views on topics such as gay rights, abortion,...

    Sadly, the majority of the Flemish people in my neighbourhood are all Flemish-nationalists worshiping the semi-radical party called 'new flemish alliance', so although they've got pretty progressive views here, they do not vote liberal.
