Basically yeah.

Conservatives stand for putting religion first like so many Muslim countries that have virtually no freedoms.

Conservatives stand for keeping women as second-class citizens like other non-developed countries. Conservatives stand for criminalizing abortion like other very religious countries do. Conservative stand for putting white people first which is the KKK all over again. Conservatives stand for big business at the expense of everyone else, especially the environment (Allowing oil corporations to pollute the world while receiving huge tax subsidies). Conservatives stand for the military-industrial complex. Conservatives like to send people to war. Conservatives love to cut education spending. Conservatives are down with violating 1st Amendment rights when it suits them (Trump banning reporters he doesn't like.) While everyone is entitled to their opinions, some opinions are just flat out disgusting and have no purpose of ever being shared with the world (this is where people blame liberals for suppressing freedom of speech. Sorry we don't like KKK rallies in our cities and sorry we don't like people being called racial epithets.) Conservative politicians are the racist ones (IA senator at the RNC, anyone?). Conservative politicians are the ones who think that transgender individuals will use bathrooms to rape children and claim it's to protect the children, but were also the same ones who said gun control wouldn't have helped the Sandy Hook students survive. Conservatives are the ones who say gun control won't work, that we need more mental health services, and then cut health care services. Conservatives are the ones who think privatizing everything is a good idea. Conservatives are the only ones who still believe in trickle down economics even though it's been proven wrong for a long time now.

Need I go on?

Well as long as you are being charitable, level minded and not hyperbolic.

What university do you currently attend?

Not easy being charitable when student loan debt is through the roof and I have to take unpaid internships to gain experience while accruing interest on my loans daily. I'm a law student in Kentucky.

Just the willingness to be downright evil and deceiving.

Kill mexicans, I mean native americans and establish the original 13. Kill more mexicans, I mean native americans to expand. Kill more native americans, I mean mexicans, and go coast to coast. Enslave children of Israel, I mean blacks, and build an empire off of them. Continue to push the deceptive Post Constatine Pagan remix of Christianity to deceive the masses. Be traitors to your own people in the UK. Start a war with them and win. Later, Go to war because the south already has an unfair economic advantage and now their seeking political power by counting slaves. Free the slaves to cripple the south's economy.

Heal the country and allow the south to have Jim Crow and continue to prosper off the back of black people. Give blacks civil rights, push drugs, then start the "war on drugs" to afflict the same people you've been afflicting for hundreds of years. Start the war on terrorism to control natural resources in a foreign land, I mean give the people over their a democracy.


US is on a decline man. The so called greatest years are over.

The only reason the US was ever so great was because it's always been racist. The nation as a whole has been quick to deny any non-white their ability to be a human. We "discovered" a "New World" that was already inhabited. We "discovered" the west coast and Manifest Destiny destroyed entire Native American territories for the future of the existence of the world. We used blacks as slaves to build up our economy and when they couldn't be slaves anywhere, we developed institutionalized racism that exists still today. We showed up to random lands and claimed them as ours with no right to them (Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, etc.). We invade Middle Eastern countries to "bring democracy" and end up with just oil...coincidence? Those countries are almost always worse off than how we left them. Come to think of it, is there any country we've actually HELPED escape poverty by invading? And why don't we invade countries without oil when they have humanitarian conflicts? Seems we LOVE invading the Gulf region which is rich in oil. But when Bosnians and Rwandans are slaughtered, we're nowhere to be found because those countries don't send us oil.

To honestly have a holiday dedicated to the man who destroyed two entire continents is disgusting. Columbus Day should be Native American Remembrance Day. Honoring the countless Native Americans that Europeans slaughtered just so they could have something they wanted. I don't think there is a people more trivialized in this nation than the Native Americans. They were here before us and we just destroyed almost every bit of their being for our own benefit, and then call it Manifest Destiny to make it sound pretty.

Easily misled voters, our notorious lobbying groups, and the inability of any state to secede from the union!

Which would be why the U.S. has a wildly popular, two-term African American President, and the wealthiest black and nonwhite population on earth?

All countries were built on racism; the U.S. is no different. But no country has ever been as prosperous and powerful as the U.S. today.
