Conservatives are evil dinosaurs who shun progress, human development, equal rights and freedom.
The mutilate the meaning of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights so as to provide support for their own archaic views, but in reality, they wish to impose upon society ideals, norms and laws that would greatly curtail freedom and individuality.
They cry out for the 'American way of life', but when democratically elected governments pass laws (and the courts uphold these laws) contrary to their liking, they not only question the rights of elected representatives to run and hold office, they call them traitors to the nation.
They try to hide their biases and blatant prejudices, but behind their rhetoric, is a mentality that is offensive and shameful for every person who believes in equality.
Not only that, but a great many of them do not know how to dance.
Naw, I have PROOF that conservatives are uptight, sex-phobic prudes who shun new ideas! The receptionist where I work believes Harry Potter is the work of the devil and won't watch Glee because the girls dress like floozies! And this receptionist is 23 years old!
I have PROOF that conservatives are greedy, tightwad hypocrites! My conservative Christian neighbor attends church three times a week and runs a company that loans money to desperate poor people at 396% interest!
PROOF that conservatives are evil, money-grubbing bastards!
And that's been pretty consistent for years! So, sorry libs it seems you are the extremists in this country, intolerant, closed minded, tight wads, that are less likely to hug your children, and would sacrifice your principles at the drop of a dime. You make mire than conservatives on average and you give less! I have posted the evidence to back me up and all you libs have posted were childish attacks which further supports the author's points in the link I posted in the liberals lack understanding thread.
Now your first step is to admit you have a problem then we can go about helping you become a good and responsible citizen that can make a positive contribution to our society.
After nearly a century of trying, finally the creation of some Health Care Reform, the repeal of DADT, shoring up the economy so it didn't completely collapse, finally getting help for 9/11 responders – and all the while having to deal with an openly hostile and irrational right wing along with a Republican party that clearly has shown they only care about returning to power and nothing about the country – I think Obama's presidency has been quite a success.
The problem with political discourse in America is that too many people think of things as "left" and "right" issues, which distance people more than they really should. To some things there are no "liberal" and "conservative" solutions. Just right and wrong solutions.
People often dub increasing taxes on the wealthy with a liberal position. But more and more, the Tea Baggers of America have come to see the necessity of doing just that.
When people identify themselves as either liberal or conservative, they legitimize the people on the other side. We should stop doing that.
...but to answer your question, yes, conservatives are evil.
