Hi, I'm a left wing liberal and I'm here to say: Yes, I dislike a lot of what you support, but no, I don't hate you for it (You're doing what you believe is right, that's understandable).

<3 you

(I was sick of seeing petty flaming in this forum, so hopefully this would slightly defuse same hate)

Agreed, why can't we all be decent human beings.

The feeling is mutual. Unfortunately it seems impossible to have a society where the hostile nature of the two party system doesn't eventually creep in.

I honestly dislike most Conservatives as people. Either they have this smug sense of superiority over everyone because they follow some self-imposed moral code that's based on nothing when you really get down to it, or they're too socially awkward to enjoy life and they want to make sure nobody else can either.

A lot of Liberals aren't much better to be honest. A lot of them are just trend following purists that refuse to consider nuance or reality. On the whole though, Liberals are generally more tolerable than Conservatives because their absolutist views of the world don't usually extend into my private life.

Most people on either side of the spectrum are fine, we just notice the worse ones more easily.

I think my biggest problem with politics is that people from the opposite parties absolutely despise the other parties.

Liberals Hate Conservatives
Conservatives Hate Liberals

I mean in my country (England), people use the word Tory as an insult, as if being conservative was this horrific thing to be.

Are you really left-wing? Or do you just believe in welfare and Black Lives Matter?

If you want to get along with people of different views, it's much better to do that in person because most people are too afraid to speak their true thoughts directly to your face. In forums like this one, people are either speaking their true thoughts that cause all kinds of fear and mistrust or they simply troll to see what kind of reaction they can get out of other people.

lookingattheissues response: Conservatives/ republicans, don't hate the individual who is liberal, conservatives disagree with the liberals ideologies and they hate what liberalism/ progressives, have done to the country with their policies.

I hate stereotypical liberals. I don't automatically assume that I'm going to meet every liberal I meet, though.

thanks but we still hate you j/k! When we challenge a position with questions, facts and stats it quickly devolves into name calling and just emotional hysteria, that has been a majority of my experience, what I see on the news when 2 of each side debate a topic. those who don't do that, find themselves more moderate than liberal, but then again I think everyone should be moderate most of the time. We generally want the same things, how we do that is the point of contention. Like most things it maybe the vocal minority making the majority look bad, dunno, I try to treat everyone on an individual bases, best I can.
