I think you are right in that they fear us. I once once told that I wasn't a republican I was a Christian. They tend to think of us as evil, when we all want the same things in life, only I want to help others to be able to obtain those thins like medical, housing, food, clothing. medical...

If it is a post I created in the past, you have to forgive this old lady. If it was created over 5 days ago, I had already forgotten it. I must go read it.

Heh, oh it's just conservatives is it? Somehow I don't think so. Even liberals are admitting the Far Left is more than just insulting--it's tyrannical:

The problem with things like this is they are dependent on specific definitions of Democrat and Republican, and there isn't really any.

Great point. The whole nonsense over conservative-liberal falls apart under the reality that moderates still make up the largest portion of American thought. It's not black and white; it's lots of grey with the extremist nuts on the fringes, making lots of noise as though they are the only ones that exist.

" Brain studies in regards to who becomes a Republican and whobecomes a Democrat"

The study and it's results were proved invalid awhile back. If I remember right, the method or way they used the lens was in error.

Like many people, I became less Liberal and more Conservative as I got older.

Probably the real start of that transformation occurred when I quit smoking pot and the fog of pie in the sky Leftist ideology started to clear out of my brain like coughing out a particularly harsh bong hit.
^I agree. I too started out as a hard core democrat, but when I seen how much they are pushing for gun control, I just could not support them anymore. Republicans for the most part, are not any better. Personally, I just think the whole system is very corrupt, and it will take another revolutionary war to bring it to an end, if it is at all possible.

I as a conservative do not go around insulting others. I only fear Liberals who follow me all over social media to harass and bully me.
Most conservatives have that experience. As is typical for the Looney Leftists, they accuse the Right of doing what they do. "Look over there!" In addition to their physical and emotional abuse, we've seen their hypocrisy with the flood of sexual assaults and harassment.

Like most people I started out as a flaming liberal due to college brainwashing but moderated over time, being Dem, Rep and Indie depending on the election or candidate and if I needed to vote in a primary. Anyone who stays in one party is an idiot or lazy and can't think for themselves.
