Incidentally, just for the record, I know a few people at my school who lean well to the right, and they're still good people. I make it a point to never talk politics with them.
Liberals: Not just smarter, but we're more polite, too!
Wow, I took a break for dinner and come back for this!?!? I find this debate really funny. The liberals on this thread keep talking about how conservatives aren't open minded, but look at some of you! You are very insulting, especially you split-finger. Mental note, don't go to Emory, they are the ones your avoiding if they are like splitfinger. Many conservatives on this thread have not made direct insults like you have. People have the right to their opinions. I have the right to think as a conservative just like you have the right to think like a liberal.
I must say, however, some of you, as Cooley pointed out, are liberals that are completely fine with me. I love civil discussions, even if I don't agree.
And all about this stuff about traditional conservatives being gone. There is still hope! Sen. Tom Coburn is an amazing man. If his ideas take hold things will be right back on track.
