    Kobie, my partner on the other side of the coin!

    No, liberals are not evil, but some of the things they promote are.
    Of course, the same can be said for some of the stupid things that some conservatives promote as well.

    Guess that makes me more a centrist of some sort.
    What, exactly, do liberals promote that is truly "evil"? Or conservatives, for that matter?

    Re: Liberals and Conservatives: Are adherents of the rival ideology evil?

    I think extreme partisan hacks are evil, such as a few in this thread. Their hatred and intentional misconstruing of the other side is causing a level of animosity in this country we haven't see in ages. It's also the reason why we can't get anything accomplished in Washington.

    I'm a leftist with many conservative friends. I also used to be very conservative up until about two years ago. Life ain't all black and white.

    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.
    Congratulations. You achieved the pinnacle with this rant.

    I hope you stop being poor soon.

    Your faith in the moral equivalency of the various political perspectives is misplaced. Conservatives and libertarians are focused only on their own, personal, welfare. Liberals, however, are concerned with everyone's.

    A good NAZI is not a good human being.

    Continued growth in the size and cost of government.
    Continued growth in the needless government interference into people's lives.
    Continued growth of dependency on government.
    Continued support and growth of protected classes that really don't need it (hate crimes are already crimes after all).
    Continued support and promotion of excessively politically correct idiotic policies

    Just what I can name off of the top of my head.

    That's an interesting definition of "evil."

    Some Nazi soldiers were simply stuck between a rock and a hard place. They had no choice but to follow orders.

    That is typical of any militia. Many soldier may disagree with the objective however they can not simply disobey orders.

    I am sure there were some Nazi soldiers who were sickened by the atrocities they had to commit. Humans are truly, TRULY, not as black and white as you want to paint them as.
