Well, it was fun while it lasted. Bye everybody.
« on: October 10, 2013, 03:25:36 PM »
I've been informed that I am a very unwelcome guest, and that I am no longer allowed to stay. I won't try to stay and post where I'm unwanted. I simply came here to show some conservatives how much they actually do have in common with their brothers on the left, and that none of this is as black and white as people think it is. Sorry for any trouble I caused.

You seem like a very unusual liberal, that is, open to exchange of ideas without becoming emotional. Who told you to leave?

Your admins are apparently getting a lot of complaints about my presence, and in the interests of maintaining peace have politely asked me to leave.

The least you could do is say where you are going so those who appreciate you can follow up...

He's a distraction.

He's like a feather on a string being pulled along the carpet....and too many of us are acting like cats.

He's like a squirrel in the backyard....and this old Main Coon is too tired and uninterested in teaching the values of Conservativism.

Also...too many posters are getting into tiffs over it.....which I think amuses him.   He already proclaimed that he "likes to get into [right-wingers] heads" (paraphrased cause I'm too lazy to look it up)

And why "Liberal_spy"?

Really?  You never rubbed me badly.   Young idealists (and honestly, I do not mean that as an insult) have their value.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Be careful about believing a troll.

The admins have gotten far more complaints about other posters without asking them to leave, I'm sure...

I noticed the distraction, but the lib was always polite. It could be instructive to lurkers to see a liberal educated. It could also strengthen our own values to have to examine and defend them.

I'm for keeping a polite liberal around.

I understand your trepidation. I spent some time at TBL, and that was an unmitigated disaster. As long as the liberal is polite and aware that this is conservative territory, it could be interesting. Besides, if he or she becomes disruptive, you can always boot him/her at a later time.

It is good to be mentally challenged occasionally. Helps hone one's thinking. Besides Liberal_Spy was polite and restrained. Seems to me if there were complainers it had to be because of his name. Like a red flag in front of a bull, apparently, because it was nothing he did so far as I can see.

To me it just clutters up the threads w/ nonsense.

If I wanted to be among the mentally-challenged, I would just go back to TBL...

Exactly.

Deliberate or not....because of his moniker and/or political pedigree...and the fact that he's somewhat of a novelty in here, his posts have a tendency to derail the thread(s)

Then some other poster comes in and chastises the participants for "hijacking" the thread topic(s).


It's totally unnecessary because we all know he's not the least bit sincere.....at least that wasn't his intent the day he signed up.

I simply came here to show some conservatives how much they actually do have in common with their brothers on the left, and that none of this is as black and white as people think it is. Sorry for any trouble I caused.

Before you go:

I have been rather busy the past day or so and have had the occasion to read, but not to comment upon your posts.

You seem like a reasonable and generally thoughtful person.

There is no litmus test for "acceptable opinions" at this site of which I am aware, and if there were, I would spend my time elsewhere.

I happen to agree with your assessment that there are common interests and beliefs around which people on the Left and Right can come together. The increasing polarization, in our time, between Americans of differing opinions is symptomatic of a political culture driven not by citizens or statesmen, but by schemers for whom division is a means to their ends.

That is not to say our differences do not matter; only that they are subject to charismatic manipulation and emotional appeal, as opposed to rational discourse. Reasonable people may disagree about a host of matters. But the very thing that makes them "reasonable" is the adherence to standards of thought and behavior inherent in a society that values reason, as opposed to mysticism or force.

From my vantage point, I think that Americans across the spectrum who still value reason might well agree on propositions such as:

 -Our government has grown too powerful and invasive of individual liberty and privacy;

 -Our political leaders have set themselves apart from the people in create special favors, exemptions and "carve-outs" for themselves, while exposing the citizenry to oppressive laws and regulations whose tentacles will never reach the redoubts of those who imposed them;

 -Our culture has devolved into a state where serial personal irresponsibility and moral relativism reign, and our personal connections to one another are less a function of familial and community bonds than of anonymous Internet intercourse. 

-Our political parties increasingly represent not us, but the permanent power structures in Washington.

There are other examples, but I'll leave it at that for the purposes of semi-brevity. We may disagree on causes and solutions, but I still believe that they are more likely to be discovered by open debate and discourse than by atomization and retreat into our increasingly uncomfortable "comfort zones".

Your move.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Maybe after his newness wears off things will settle down..I am willing to see if that happens...
