    There. I've said it and I mean it.

    The major forces behind conservatism as it exists in America today are willful ignorance and malice. Conservatism demands of its adherents a willingness to accept all manner of injustices without anything beyond a cursory consideration of their causes and further demands a willingness to punish those who aren't part of the mainstream. Witness conservatism's rejection of any attempt to alleviate the pain of the poor who suffer without healthcare and the emotional distress of social outcasts such as gays and lesbians.

    Americans never can call themselves civilized as long as they allow conservatism to exist.
    That is either a poor attempt at humor or one of the most stupid things I have ever read, or both.

    I don't all think collectivists are evil. But most of the ones I have ever seen are poorly educated and not very bright. The philosophy they subscribe to appeals to emotions and requires very little thinking, which suits them well.

    It probably is, but it's VERY poorly thought out. It gives a binary choice, leaving people no room for anything other than one of two polar extremes for their respective ideology. For example, I'm a conservative and I think that some aspects of liberal ideology and beliefs are evil, but not intentionally so. I also believe that for the most part, liberals believe that they are doing good in these aspects. While the outcome may be evil, the motivation most certainly is not. A poll like this one forces the responder to eliminate that possibility and simple choose one two bad choices.

    I suppose, by collectivist, you mean progressive. If that's the case, you comment is ridiculous.

    Conservative is just another way to say "low-effort thinker." Low-effort thinking leads to ignorance and that's a hallmark of conservatism. Witness the woefully under-informed support for Keystone XL by conservatives. No matter how often the facts are laid-out, conservatives insist it would create jobs and be "good for America." That's utterly absurd and any substantive analysis of the issue proves it.

    Does anyone disagree with that?

    Now that we've put this BS out of the way maybe we can move on to some important issues
