    That's awesome. I'd like to get that old bastard talking. He's gotta have some pretty good stories.

    Often I find it when people are uptight, its not that they are uptight but guarded. That can be for whatever reason, but if you find it a theme among liberals, you may wish to observe you present yourself.
    There are all types on both sides of the political coin, so there is no right/wrong answer. I will say it's been my experience that if in a casual setting the dreaded topic of politics happens to rear its ugly head and someone is going to get " bent out of shape". In my experience it will usually be the person holding the " liberal" position. IMO

    This is sooo true^^ My sister in-law who 15yrs ago and fresh out of college was as liberal as they get. Marriage and 2 kids later, um not so much anymore. What's really amusing is my father in-law who is a FLAMING liberal has 3 daughters, and they all married men who are RW..

    To me it is absurd that WWE fans in America vote for the richer Republican party. That seems pretty stupid. But then again, Democrats hardly appeal to the working class in US do they? They focus on minorities for the most part. And do-gooders. American politics is strange as hell to me.

    edit- wouldnt it be easier for one party to be for the working class and the other for the business class? thats normally how it works if you look around the world.

    edit- See the conservative Liberal Party is for owners. The 'liberal' Labor Party is for workers... Wouldnt that make more sense?
    To your edits: That's a peculiar legacy of American culture, which stems from the historical belief that we're a nation of boundless opportunities and complete class mobility. The pioneers and rags-to-riches types were our mythological heroes.

    Of course, the idea of total class mobility was never true, but that part of the American mindset is likely to be in effect for at least a couple more generations.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

I look at it this way, no good can come from it, we disagree so why create friction when we get along just fine. I would rather have drama free family gatherings then to discuss politics.

    I was being sarcastic. It was a story and that was it. No one cares if you know 3 people who were dumb when they were kids and then became conservatives. Most liberals aren't just having a fling with the ideology.

    I ****ing understand it and have a good reason for believing the things I believe, and you don't get to demean my ideology and act like I just "need to grow up".

    There's a reason the saying goes "If you're not a liberal when you're 25, you have no heart. If you're not a conservative by the time you're 35, you have no brain." Yes, liberals need to grow up.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    All you've done is prove everything I've posted about as being true. Like I said, if someone is going to get "bent out of shape" chances are they are liberal. If found anything I posted as being demeaning, you might want to knock that chip off your shoulder, and start enjoying life.. Good luck

    You're entire ideology is that when people mature, they move away from being liberal. It's asinine.

    I see you're the type of person who equates an old, dumb saying as truth. Here are some more old sayings (I guess by the time you finish reading this you'll be a ****ing genius):

    Humorous Sayings | Wise Old Sayings
    A clean house is a sign of a misspent life. - unknown
    A deaf husband and a blind wife are always a happy couple. - John Florio (1553-1625)
    Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get. - unknown

    Honestly though, the fact that you guys believe that cracks me up.
