    Who Better Understands What Liberals Think

    It seems to me that many conservatives on this site seem to think they understand what Liberals think better than those whose beliefs they're discussing. They'll sometimes even tell you that you're wrong about what you believe. So I thought I'd put it to a poll. Who better understands what liberals think, and why?
    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).

    A better question would be to ask who really understands liberal ideology, since precious few on either side seem to have much of a grasp.

    For the vast majority, what is liberal and what is conservative is not defined by actual ideology, but by simple labels. If a "liberal" expresses an opinion, that opinion is labelled liberal and a conservative likewise, until peopel are simply replicating memes instead of espousing an ideology.

    I know what makes me a liberal. I know that it is nothing like what I am told us "libbos" think.

    Re: Who Better Understands What Liberals Think

    A lot of conservatives use the evangelical approach. They avoid discussing their own ideas, as it is much easier to just attack the ideas of others.

    Conservatives in general have no desire to listen to the ideas from the other side.....if they make no attempt to listen, they will never understand....

    but what makes you a liberal is not what makes me a liberal........which is why no one knows how "libbos" think, despite their claims otherwise.

    i believe that as well. in some cases, it's because they don't HAVE their own ideas. i do have respect for those who don't just parrot the party line.

    i was castigated on another forum for being an israel supporter.

    You understand what you think better than anyone.
    Your thoughts may not be rational, consistent, supportable or sound, but you still understand them better than anyone.

    Liberals do the same thing to conservatives: "Oh they shouldn't like her with her slutty teenage pregnant daughter," "How Christian of you" .... etc. Same thing.
