1 JamesO, a quick check of your last twenty or so posts suggests to me that you are too sensible to be either a lefty or a righty. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on June 2, 2011, 12:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 JamesO...what does that make you? Balanced, of course. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 2, 2011, 12:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Actually, it was me who submitted both liberalism and conservatism at the same time. :) So which one am I? -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on June 1, 2011, 3:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 You're right, of course. Nor is anyone under any obligation to explain why he/she chooses a particular subject to submit. However, the matter is open to conjecture, and I suspect that the number of BTFers who are most interested in submitting subjects they hated from the get-go explains the presence of quite a few subjects on this site. (All those far-left acronym activist groups, for example. There are lots of them here, including some that are quite obscure - yet there are no far-RIGHT activist groups listed, for some reason.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 29, 2011, 10:55 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 You are hearing crickets because there is no answer to your question. There isnt a form to fill out for "why" you are submitting a topic to BTF. Keep on waiting.... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on May 29, 2011, 5:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

7 A question about topics like this: Does anyone have an idea as to what percentage of the politically divisive subjects on BTF are submitted by members whose sole purpose in doing so is to enable them to express their opposition to those subjects? It's a shame we can't access the identities of the individuals who create these BTF subjects; it would say alot if the person who first submitted ten different prominent Democrats as discussion topics was an ultra-opinionated Republican who hates all ten of them and was eagerly seeking an excuse to tell us so. (For example, I seriously doubt that the person who first submitted this topic - "liberalism" - is a liberal, or that the person who submitted "conservatism" is a conservative.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 30, 2011, 2:19 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I can't speak to Googalslosh's political status, which I don't know, but I can say I agree with his/her comment. (Well, not the "idiot" part.) It IS true that neither conservatism nor liberalism (as we define them today) has all the answers, or is consistently correct (or consistently logical), or has a monopoly on moral probity. Nor is namecalling, or character assassination, a tactic employed by one side only (as WE ALL know). All too many of the criticisms aimed at one ideology can as easily be applied to the other. That's why those of us who are in the center tend to accept the most sensible parts of both ideologies (and of libertarianism too) and discard the rest. Across-the-board liberalism and across-the-board conservatism are both exercises in cluelessness, and an America completely dominated by either one of them would be a nightmarish place. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 29, 2011, 12:55 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Let the record show that it is a representative of the liberal side that's had to resort to name calling. Just like a libby to do that since they can't successfully argue their point otherwise since even most of THEM don't really understand why they subscribe to that way of thinking. Here's an idea, why don't you create a blog and call me whatever you want there (like a certain RED HEAD from a while back) and leave this site to the people who can actually carry on civil discourse without acting 13, 'k? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 5, 2011, 6:12 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
10 DolFan, you are an idiot. Everything you say can be applied to conservatives equally. -- Submitted By: (Googalslosh) on April 4, 2011, 9:22 pm - (-8 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Liberalism is just communism, which is just as bad in action as it was a thought and on paper. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 2, 2011, 6:12 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Liberalism on paper seems like a great idea. Free rights and equality for everyone. However, it doesn't factor in logic, common sense, and inherent human nature. Ignoring these things, liberalism ends up being wishful thinking for a feel-good utopia that will NEVER exist thanks to the way humans are wired. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 22, 2010, 9:22 pm - (11 votes) - Login to Vote
13 There's just not enough space for me to describe all the problems and flaws of liberalism. And even if there was I wouldn't have the time or energy to list them all. Let's just say these guys are great at pointing out problems--half of which they're partially responsible for to begin with--but really lousy at the actual "solving" part. Oh, and they're hypocrites of the highest (or is that lowest) order. Everything's fine when *they* do or say it, but bad when you do. And again, this is just the tipitty tip of the proverbial iceberg. Which according to libbies is melting as we speak. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on February 12, 2010, 1:57 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Yeah, there's a flame war but apparently with the vote stacking :P. The conservativism entry started at the same time but no one is voting there. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on January 31, 2010, 12:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
15 As Thomas Sowell said "It was said of liberal legend Senator Hubert Humphrey that he had more solutions than there were problems. But today's liberals seem to have no solutions to anything, just carping, spin, and character-assassination." -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on January 23, 2010, 10:05 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
