"Democrats: Operate on rehtoric, opinion, half truths and falsehoods. Cannot justify their statements with facts.Originally posted by Allan4
As far defining Conservatives and Liberals....I did. A defination is not 45 paragraphs long, it is just that.....a defination, a simple explination. I did so at the begining of my last post. You haven't read my post, you need to do so.
I will say though that Hannity is really right, and needs to back off on the few things he is wrong on from time to time.
Republicans: Operate on facts, proven methods and reality, can justify their statments with facts."
Not how do they operate, what are their basic beliefs?
Like I've said before: I find myself somewhat a centrist with liberal attitudes on social issues and conservative attitudes on fiscal issues. If I lived in Utah I would vote for Hatch because I highly respect his opinion even when on occasion I do not agree with him. If I lived in Arizona I would vote for John McCain. I live in California and for governer what's the point.
My point all along is that we all need to look at issues from all sides before just trusting one source and basing our reality on it alone. As Regards Fox news; Although I don't particularly care for Hannity's obsession with Clinton because there are more important things than to waste so much time on it. "Hannity spends most of his day explaining why "we have to stop Hillary from becoming President". O'Reilly on the other hand is very interesting and does try to temper his views with an open mind. O'Reilly is a very intelligent person who presents very good arguments. A Liberal who does not at least consider their arguments is as foolish as a conservative who does not make the effort to understand the liberal viewpoint.
While it may seem "true" for many of you that all people who have different beliefs than your own are wrong, immoral, evil, etc., the real "truth" according to Jesus Christ is that we should love our neighbors as ourselves and forgive them of their failings. I'll admit that my heroes are Christ, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Saint Francis, and others who thought love and peace could prevail in standing up to an enemy bent on killing them. I also admit to wanting to nuke the bastards just like everybody else. Deep down inside I know it to be wrong both morally and practically. It is not possible to wipe out a billion people as a means to stop terrorism. It also seems impossible to win them over with love and compassion, but my heros all proved it possible at least to some degree. I'm pretty sure they would all be labelled "Liberal" too. Christ was even hated for some of the same reasons stated on this thread.
