Why does this poll assume we are all partisan hacks.
TheOpinionist says2015-07-25T08:36:52.9100435-05:00
Because a lot of people are...

I see you're pretty libertarian. What do you hate most about the statists?
Renegader says2015-07-25T08:46:58.5392946-05:00
I dislike statists in both parties. You can often find them trying to enforce their own sense of morality on everyone. Conservatives force traditional values and religious crap while leftist statists force rules that ignore personal responsibility and create an environment of political correctness. There are good aspects about each side as well though.

So your answer would be "ideology"
Haroush says2015-07-25T11:02:45.4799547-05:00
So tell me, @ renegader no one is supposed to talk about their personal beliefs? Are you even aware of how much traditional values in the U.S. have been denegrated and supressed? So just allow cultural Marxism to march on without nonviolent resistance? I don't think so.
Haroush says2015-07-25T11:04:34.4502785-05:00
Or else if we do get suppressed to the point we have no 1st amendment right we will become violent! Don't tread on me!

Ted Crus is fine.
TheOpinionist says2015-07-25T13:37:09.0974971-05:00
Yeah I kinda like Cruz. He's right on a lot of things. Not everything, but nobody's perfect
Renegader says2015-07-25T13:44:40.6793875-05:00
Talk about them all you want @Haroush, I simply meant that people should avoid being sucked into partisan identity politics. What's that point of being a huge cliche. It just makes you look like you can't form your own opinions.

What if you observe everything going on. You take a look back into your country's history and notice how things got to where they're today. After analyzing everything you have just seen and all the chaos taking place in your country you come to realize this was all a set up for the masses to be programmed to default social settings in which destroys the very fabric in which this country was based on. This very fabric is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Look at how much influence the colleges tied in with government have. Look at how they program people with their institutional programs orchestrated by lobbyist groups. All in the name of what is "right" and what is "true" to them. Though ask yourself, where does true intelligence come from? Does it come from book knowledge or creative critical thinking skills which develop the new interventions of tomorrow? Perhaps it may make a new idea impacting the masses in a positive way possible with scientific studies. We can do anything as a country but only if we develop the comprehension necessary to understand each other, respecting one and another's beliefs with humility which comes from our G-d given rights. Will there be disagreements? Sure. Will there be hard times? Sure. Though intolerance for ideas or beliefs directly affecting one's personal life with no physical harm done to others is beyond me. It rips apart what our founding fathers fought and died for. Though who do you see speaking up about this? Very few. So now, it is almost as if we are in a civil cold war when it comes to our culture. To be honest.. It may not seem like it is of great importance but it is. These societal issues manifesting today come from the roots of our country being treated like weeds in a garden.. They are being ripped out of the foundation of this country and being thrown in the trash.

@Harous - how is same-sex marriage personally harming you? How is abortion personally harming you ?
Haroush says2015-07-26T05:48:28.8253175-05:00
Vice versa to you..
TBR says2015-07-28T19:48:27.9202969-05:00
@Haroush - Me? How is it harming me? Not in the slightest.
Haroush says2015-07-29T01:36:48.7701351Z
You are heeled.
