And it’s shit like this that I don’t really think people understand. While you’re supporting the gutting of food stamps, medicaid, and other social programs, you’re legitimately committing people to die.
I fear something like this. D:

This will be fun. And by “fun” I mean it will make me angry. :p
The Dirty Fucking Hippies are ALWAYS RIGHT
This is actually accurate. some conservatives hate agreeing with progressives at all costs, even if they actually do. I’ve actually dealt with this. Some conservatives don’t even want to work with liberals even if there are areas we can agree on- or work out together. Some prefer to divide and fight. Some like disrupting families, breaking relationships, tearing apart people.
Instead of working together and taking time to understand one another, some conservatives prefer to argue and yell at all costs. Some prefer to assume before asking. Some prefer to demean. While this is also true of some progressives, I’ve had more experience with this behavior from conservatives. A lot more. Some conservatives would rather ridicule and demean family members, friends, etc than actually discuss issues and philosophical differences. To some conservatives (especially those who watch FOX News and Glenn Beck fans) HATE everything about progressives. They see them as a bigger enemy than Al Qaeda. They want to destroy them at all costs. There is no way to reason with these über-conservatives.
I’d like to think that not all conservatives are like this, just the asshats who get air time. And the sheep who pay attention to them. There are some conservatives out there who want to discuss our philosophical differences and work things out. Unfortunately, they don’t get air time. And they are a shrinking group as they become the crazy, mean ones or reject the republican party and conservative ideals all together.
“When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.” John Lennon
