Liberals, what are the MAIN things that you cannot stand about Conservatives? Why?
Conservatives ALWAYS seem to be AGAINST change and progress. They are never FOR positive things. They only want to obstruct change, or NOT do their jobs, or complain and whine all the time because they don't get their way.
Conservatives simply cannot stand progress!
Who says progression is good or even necessary?
@ Lolita, progress is GOOD & NECESSARY! If there was no progress, humankind would be still living in caves! Really now! Either people progress, evolve, or ......atrophy!
I was trying to suggest that not all change is good. Change like getting out of caves is, of course, good, but somethings need to be left alone. I should have worded it better.
Loli-give us some examples of the kind of change that is bad for us. What should we leave alone?
Men and women roles, dating etiquette, traditional values, etc.
Well Said Austinstar ~ Moreover, CONservatives have been so Exceedingly Adamant about OBSTRUCTING the United States of America and Progressive Democrats that they have constantly resorted to UNLAWFUL Activity ~ This "Madness" Accelerated in 2009 ~
Do you think women should be subservient? Or is that too much change? You think etiquete should never change? And what traditional values are changing that are worse than what you are used to?
Married people should stay together and work things out instead of divorce. We should maintain and encourage that men are men and women are women. Traditional marriage. You should still submit to your husband without seeming like he owns you.
Be subservient to one's husband?This isn't the 19th century,it is the 21st century! Women are EQUAL to men. Marriage is an EQUAL partnership.No women are inferior to nor should be subservient to men.This ISN'T SLAVERY! This is WORSE than I thought!
You are so brainwashed. The limitations you are imposing on women, for instance. Why? Women do NOT have to "submit" to any man. Marriage is just another form of ownership. Why can't we be free to live our lives? Y do you need to be told how to live?
Exactly, women & men are EQUAL. This ISN'T the dark ages when women were merely personae non gratae to men unless it is for procreation duties. This is totally unbelievable, Austinstar! I am totally nonplussed at this-really I am!
I know, right? It's like cows being in favor of the meat industry!
"You should still submit to your husband without seeming like he owns you".
...then you wouldn't submitting then. Kind of black and white there.
It's staggering how an actual woman just advocated for that.
It's .........BEYOND STAGGERING. It sounds downright duggarish if you catch my drift!
It is staggering in its implication that women should just be cows. That some fictional god has commanded that humans subjugate themselves to "the church" & "the supreme invisible deity". What kind of life is that? Oh yea, free will that isn't fr
How they say they want the best for the country but seemingly are never in favor of anything that is actually benefitial.
I would say it's not particularly their views that bother me but the complete and utter disgraceful hypocrisy that is exhibited at times.
The lack of care they are showing for the people of Flint, MI; the lack of responsibility on gun control after the school and movie shootings, the willful refusing to do their jobs. Yes, they just don't care about anything other than lining pockets.
Let's NOT forget the Vehement Republican OBSTRUCTION & Opposition to Raising the Minimum Wage which now sits at BELOW Poverty of $7.25 pr hr ~ Dunce Trump would ACTUALLY LOWER it according to his own comments ~ Democrats have fought to RAISE Wag
(1) Typical Conservatives are ensconced in the past & traditional way of doing things although such things can be toxic.
(2) Typical Conservatives view aspects of change as somewhat threatening to their purview, outlook & philosophy of life.
(3) Typical Conservatives believe & strive to maintain strict distinctions & separations among people based upon purely artificial/social constructs such as gender, class, race/ethnic group, religion, orientation, & other constructs.
(4) Typical Conservatives are extremely authoritarian in outlook & philosophy. It is either their way or the highway.
(5) Typical Conservatives can't/don't/won't accept that there are legitimate differences in terms of lifestyles, beliefs, & other variables. They view differences as somehow odd, weird, even deviant.
(6) Typical Conservatives are comfortable with homogeny in thought, belief, & in paradigms.
(7) Typical Conservatives view women as different but in a disparate way. They are threatened by women's increasing equality, feeling that this increasing equality will destroy the family dynamic as they know it.
(8) Typical Conservatives believe in traditional, even retrogressive ways to solve problems although such ways are antiquated & no longer applicable to post-modern society.
(9) Typical Conservatives view men as superior, even sacrosanct. They will do anything necessary to maintain male hegemony in society.

My unbiased description is this: liberals turn to government to solve their problems. Conservatives turn to business to solve their problems.
