    I posted videos of people being asked policy questions and not being able to answer with any degree of literacy or knowledge. Overwhelmingly, conservatives are much more conversant with the issues than liberals, who are usually brainwashed by slogans.

    Yes, there are racist idiots out there...that doesn't disprove my argument.
    I see you opted for the ladder of my theories.

Generally speaking, not only are these people not very bright, but they, rather stupidly, feel as though their political indifference confers magnanimity.

    If you have an IQ higher than that of a garden gnome, you're either a left-winger or a right-winger. All this I'm-in-the-middle nonsense is, generally, for educable retards.
    The independent label is simply a way for someone to denote the absence of a political allegiance. It doesn't mean they don't have a well-defined political philosophy.

    I'm an independent libertarian, for instance...

    What are you talking about? Is the word you are looking for "latter"?

    By "independent," I am referring to those who use the label in the same way people use "centrist."

    Looked at about 30 seconds of this thing and I must say you would have to brainwash me to get me to watch anymore of it. Christ that is 30 seconds of my life I'll never get back.

    Okay, but "centrists" can also have a well-defined political philosophy. They just don't fall under the typical left/right dichotomy. Not every issue has only two positions.

    "Ladder" as I've always understood it to mean the second in a set of two.

    Well, it doesn't.

    "Latter" means the second in a set of two; "ladder" is something you climb.

    HEY liberals! I am back!

    I love sending liberals into fits of rage. I haven't posted in two days and one simple PM has me being talked about up till now. Poor liberals. >>

    I've got news for you K1, we're all brainwashed one way or another. That's how we become who we are. If we're lucky the people we associate with won't influence (brainwash) us to be prejudiced, overbearing or pseudo macho.

    Uhm, you say you are back, where you here before?

    When ever I see threads like this, which seem to just be about bashing Americans, I always think of David Bowie and Trent Reznor.................
