Hi Billie and everyone!
What I have learned is this---and actually this is common sense when you think about.
Liberals or conservatives is a gigantic classification. I want to focus on liberals here. Within liberalism there are varying degrees and manifestations. In college for example, most everyone was left leaning....which is pretty typical for college kids. Most of it though was beautiful and kind and about love, etc. It was great! There was a fringe element of liberals also then that were bizarre or who seemed militant, angry, mentally unstable, etc Mostly though it was great!
Here is how I turned against liberals---I moved to Seattle and worked in an office dominated by a very ugly and dangerous strain. These were very passive aggressive and vicious people. They detested the idea of a sovereign USA and also detested the flag, traditional family, the military, references to God and everything else that most people like or hold dear.
This group dominated the office and made it a very miserable place to work. This group held the entire place hostage.
This ugly group claimed to be tolerant and inclusive but they were anything but. They were only tolerant if you were like them. If you had any inkling of traditional views---like I did...you were in big trouble. I was VERY much discriminated against because I was different in some of my views---other people were victimized also. A weird thing is this---when I moved to Seattle I thought I was left leaning-----but I was very different from these ugly and mean spirited liberals. After many years, I began to resent them and this is what turned me against the left and what made me embrace the right.
Billie, I especially liked reading your comments, reading about your viewpoints, etc.
Per Syria, there are no significant resolutions per the UN Security Council, the UK backed out, there is limited support here domestically, etc.
If Obama doesn't get our government to agree with him but he decides to attack anyway.....I will feel like I'm living in the Twilight Zone. Also, if it goes down with Obama deciding to attack on his own---I think this will be terrible for the legacy of our country and how the rest of the world views us. Much of the world is already skeptical about the USA...
