    In my better moments, I try to tell myself no one is evil.
    I don't identify with the current "platform" of the Democrats, but I could be considered a progressive liberal on the basis of the ethical groundwork from which I build my stances.

    I voted liberal, conservatives aren't evil.

    I think real evil is a rather deeper quality that few people actually have, and doesn't rely on politics.

    People are more nuanced than just left or right, and the qualities required to be determine if someone as evil are different from the qualities used to determine ones political leaning.

    I guess I would say that a lot of people believe that certain ideologies, when taken to their furthest extremes, are inherently evil.
    Yup. But such extreme people do exist. Take a look at the poll...

    Unfortunately, I'm not surprised. We've seen several threads calling an entire political group evil, just in the past couple weeks. The state of American political discourse is abysmal.

    Anyone who subscribes to the universe revolving around this political duality is insane, or stupid, or both.

    I am a 'what is right' and find that no one ideology or political leaning has all the answers. Not sure how to vote.

    Now that we've put this BS out of the way maybe we can move on to some important issues.
    There are many on both sides of the partisan coin who broad brush the other side as evil based. Yes, I'd say those people are bigots, but I'd also say they're childish imbeciles too.

    Some liberals are evil. Some conservatives are evil. The evilness is unrelated to their political ideology in most cases.
