A southern lower class bigot might be leaning left on many economic policies, but as we've seen, he'd even sacrifice his own health care to put a fellow bigot in the White House. Because hate is just that potent. It can even outweigh self-interest.

Man we did that joint months ago. Just search for it.

Second, there is nothing special about being a Centrist. You are not a special snowflake if you are, especially if you are left leaning.

Most centrist are just people who are either liberal or conservative up hold extreme views on a couple issues. Or people that want to the intellectual high ground without doing he necessary research.

Most intelligent liberals I know have very nuanced views on public policy issues and solutions. Same with my smart conservative friends

In the same vein, the folks who say "keep calling us stupid for supporting Trump (even though he cheated us) and we'll vote for da don again" don't realize that they are in fact confirming their stupidity.

But they get mad if you point it out.

It's weird to see this because I know from a purely philosophical/theortical perspective this is accurate and yet it feels wrong because the overton window is so far left that I feel more right wing. It's a good reminder that things have gone off the rails when actual liberals are considered centrist or even right wing.

Can't flex intellectually? Go with the "centrist/open minded" angle. When that doesn't work because you're clearly not really that, go for the thug, everyone else is a dweeb angle.

as apposed to thinking its a zero sum game "one side is right da other side is "evil"

laugh.gif :grin.gif that's a muuuuch better way to view political spectrums.

A lot of the questions seemed really dated and antiquated, then I realized it's just mirroring the popular opinions in this country. This is where we are. 'A woman's place is in the kitchen.' is a legit question that needs a response.:lol:{

I honestly think that question is outdated. It should be more "do you believe that there is a gender wage gap?"

You act like a good portion of the country, men and women alike, don't feel this way, though

Conservatism goes hand and hand with religious ideologies, and that is the climate around religion in many regards

its connotation implied there is you rather da wife at home raising your children and managing da house while da man goes out and becomes da breadwinner.

it caters to da traditional nuclear family demographic, da question can also be misconstrued as sexist caveman lingo.

depends where your politics stand.

The two can be conflated. It's a matter of opinion in how you interpret the question.

 

I don't think they're mutually exclusive, though. It could just be that some of the ideals at the time of this 'nuclear family' were dated, and aren't standards that most women would like to live by today.

 

So there's a difference between you asking me that question decades ago, or asking me that question in 2017, IMO.

I don't think modern day conservatism believes in that theology. If that was the case, there would be no conservative female business executives out there.
