    So how can Conservatives understand what liberals think, when Conservatives cant understand what they think themselves?
    IMO, the GOP's approach is attacking their opponents ideas without having any ideas of their own.
    And here we are almost a year after the GOP got its smackdown, and they haven't come up with a single idea, or potential candidate, for the next election.
    Romney was on the news last night....at one time I liked him, now he makes me sick. He is using the very old and very lame GOP playbook of putting down the opposition without presenting alternate plans....
    How are we to know what a person thinks if all he does is put down what the other guy thinks or does...?

    According to this poll, I guess Disneydude is a master at what both think considering posts like this about conservatives:

    Yep, it sure stinks when the poor persecuted liberals on this forum get told what they "really" think. I'm so glad we have a thread discussing that, cause like, its never like it happens to BOTH sides of the ideological isle.

    Re: Who Better Understands What Liberals Think

    I got a power point presentation via email describing some differences between cons and libs and their thinking.
    a few are telling....
    as in guns, a con who doesn't like guns doesn't buy guns, a lib who doesn't like guns wants to ban all guns.
    or gays, a conservative gay is quiet about it, a lib gay is on the streets demanding "respect".
    Talk shows, a con who doesn't like Rush and Beck changes stations, a lib wants to shutdown talk radio.
    Religion, a con who isn't into it just won't go to church, libs want to ban all mention of god in public spaces.

    and so on....
    Seems like libs are more into social engineering, and cons are more into personal responsibility...

    And did a lib tell you this is how they think, or are you assuming?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    You cannot trust people to tell you what they think accurately because pretty much nobody can look at themselves objectively.

    This is a list made by a conservative to put liberals in a poor light. Don't give it much credence. The primary difference between a liberal and a democrat today is that a liberal feels that government can be a part of the solution for the country, while a conservative believes that government is part of the problem. That is a huge oversimplification, but I think fairly close to the truth. It's not that liberals are into social engineering, we just feel that hte government can be a force in making the country better.

    Where we go wrong so often, as in the list you mentioned, is that instead of disagreeing and being civil, we have to demonize and insult.

    Some people take up titles without truly knowing what they mean, so...I guess some liberals know themselves better, some conservatives may know a thing or two about a few of them, and then there are those who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground... Politics, Oh, the Humanity.
