Today’s Society

Who do you think the guys are who aren’t bailing?

Ha. This is socialism in action. Equal opportunity: they will ALL sink.

    That’s a good one, Tannngl!

    This actually reminds me of some rabid Ron Paul supporters who trolled me on my blog posts over the years. They would ridicule conservatives as if they believed themselves to be in a different boat. Now of course we have Democrats hoping for Trump to fail in his plan to turn the country around. I guess some people actually have to be underwater before they wake up. You’d think the catastrophe in Venezuela would wake people up but no.

    Seems that the malignant blindness in minds of the left somehow binds them much more tightly in their political activism than the many different groups of conservatives. Why? The left is a pretty diverse bunch of people with many different creeds and beliefs but are all nourished and kept in the political strength and organization of the Democrat party.
    Perhaps it’s our true belief which we act on, that all voices have the right to be heard. Thus, all our conservative diversity are heard and sometimes pull us apart in the ensuing debates. And all the groups under the left’s tent seem to fall in line and not debate each other nor struggle over power.
    Lots of human dynamics go on in Political groups and it’s usually not very clear why people think the way they do. I’m frequently stumped.

      It’s a good question, Tannngl. I think the liberal mentality makes it much easier to herd them around like sheep. For one thing liberals give everyone victim status, and then promise goodies for their victimhood but you only get the goodies if you “unite.” Conservatism is far more principle-centered, but there are so many varying degrees to which conservatives feel strongly about issues (i.e. some are fiscally conservative but not so much socially or vice versa) and they often disagree on which issues will be line-in-the-sand issues (as evidenced by the recent fight among Republicans over healthcare “reform”), so it is nearly impossible to unite them. The single best uniting element for conservatives seems to be an unlikeable Democrat candidate.

        Yes! Maybe we’re getting at the answer.
        Seems to be the moral character of both groups, liberal and conservative.
        Liberals being more infantile in how they get what they want. Conservatives seem more controlled and relying on responsible self effort to obtain what they want. That is more clear to me now.

        And uniting to elect other than an unlikeable candidate is very probably one reason for conservatives to unite. But what about the 2 elections of Ronald Reagan? I think our very conservative presidents were elected after some very bad Democrat controlled administrations and may not have been to defeat an unlikeable Democrat candidate…
        There’s probably more to this..

        But thanks for the wisdom and discussion. Good stuff!

        I think the country was less polarized in Reagan’s time and, consequently, people were more open to being persuaded by the arguments the candidates were making. We can’t forget, however, that Carter’s popularity was down in the 30-35% range when he ran for re-election against Reagan. He may not have been as unlikeable as Hillary (she’d be hard to beat on that score!), but I don’t think he was liked the way Clinton or Obama was liked by their base. I don’t think Michael Dukakis gave anyone the warm fuzzies either.

        Good discussion indeed – thanks!
