    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".
    Where did I say I knew 3 people who were "dumb when they were kids" ?? I said my father in law has 3 girls who married RW men. Dude take a chill pill!

    Now imagine that you asked each of these people, individually and privately, the following question: “How would you describe yourself politically?”

    What percentage of them would say something like “liberal” or “mostly liberal?”
    If I count only the Navy town I'm in, significantly less than half. But if I include everyone within 50 miles, that would include Seattle, which would make the percentage much higher.

    Not everyone, remember. Just everyone you know personally.
    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.

    Dude, I'm the chillest guy you know. I don't care if you want to believe that liberalism is an affliction of the young, but I'm just going to keep laughing every time you do.

    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.
    Well actually if you would " preach what you practice" and not "practice what you preach" you might even surprise yourself.

    Maybe 25%. Maybe less. Like I said, it's a Navy town.

    Some people don't like the idea that when they grow up, they'll realize that all the things they believe are nonsense?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I'm 100% sure I could debate and crush you on any topic I am liberal on.

    First off, I don't know you, secondly there are plenty of old liberals. And where exactly did I say it's an affliction of the young??
    You seem to have got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?
