And no, I`m not trying to have a discussion with a f*cking racist. You disgust me.
I dont sound like that because thats not what i said. I dont like what MOST republicans stand for. I dont hate all of them. What i said wasnt too hard to understand but maybe this helps
Yeah, when it`s done right. But it can even be quite amusing when done wrong. We get a little of both in every debate.
Right = thesis + antithesis = synthesis (--> truth? the learning process? the democratic process?)
Wrong = "YOU $@%#$^# A**&%@# YOU S*CK!" (conflict = good for ratings!)
You gotta chuckle...
On the point about seperation of church and stateIm talking about any sistuation where religion is put into government buildings or schools. Not everyone is christian. An example is that courthouse that had the ten comandments at its entrance and politicians fought for it to not be removed. This is what im talking about. I personally find it a disgrace to our country.
I don`t have a lot to say on the state of the United States of America`s politics and can`t complain much about either parties, as they both have their flaws and promises. I don`t think it`s fair to say that all politicians only want power, but if the job descriptions says you`ll get power, power-hungry people tend to go after it. In the end, it all comes down to who you want to believe in, I think.
B) What do you mean pretend like seperating church and state? I am assuming (again, sorry mate), that you are talking about trivial things such as using the word God (having it in our currency for example). In that case, go to hell. Lol.
The above not ment to be taken seriously.P.S. Since when did adolescents have informed points of views, hm?
Im just going to take a breather, and look at the big picture. You dont know anything about the republic party. Lets adress this with the 2 things wrong in your statement.
A. I am assuming (so dont bash me for this) that you dont think we people should be able to buy guns. Okay, are you saying other should be able constrict what we may be able to buy? We already have to have permits for it...(as well as water heaters wtf?) Do you even begin to realize how wrong that is?
But the discussion here pretty much illustrates the purpose. People have lots of opinions on what this is about, some more thought out than others. I used the Matrix to provoke a simple starting point: how blues view reds and vice versa. Reds think blues believe whatever they want to believe and blues think reds live in wonderland. It`s not perfect, it`s a cliche, but that`s why I used it. Also because the intent is to show how popular culture is shaping our political identities. The story is more complex and I deal with different aspects of various explanations out there with other shorts on the YuoTube site. I.e., the media, technology, parties, etc.
BTW, I`m a political science professor. Thanks for watching and commenting.
Because government - federal, regional AND local - is about more than arguing over who`s at fault for a nations ills. Tough to believe, but government actually does stuff that affects real people. This is why everyone MUST be better informed, because if people ignore politics for whatever dumbass reason, they`re essentially allowing that government to do whatever the hell it wants. This is called `tyranny,` and it`s bad.
"If you hate something but know nothing about it then ask yourself, why do I hate it? Thats the point. A good example other than politics is racism. People who are racist usually dont know alot of the people that they are racist against. If they did know more of these people then they probably wouldnt be racist. And if they still are then there isnt much you can do"ok, if you HATE politics, you need a reason, but you dont have to know anyth
""if you dont care about politics, shouldnt it be better to keep your negative opinion out of it?"learning about politics and just voicing your negative opinion are not the same thing
Yes, if you "support the troops" then go to a peace rally, where they carry signs that say "we support troops who shoot their commanding officers".
The blue pill must teleport you to the twilight zone, where hipocracy is the norm and lies and filth in the media are welcomed. Where the true heros aren`t the troops risking their lives, but the journalists who fly to Iraq, stay in the green zone, most of which don`t even leave their hotel, get a story fed to them via someone else or in the "rare" chance that the story is made up and photoshopped pictures are included.
I hope you are not referring to my post. I have followed politics probably long before you were born. As for learning about "it" first, what do you want to know young fellow?
That`s depressing as hell.
i get to believe whatever i want to believe!
Republicans use outside influences to justify their encroachments on our rights (Terrorism etc) and Democrats use inside influences (Gang crime, poverty etc)The end result is that no matter who you vote for, if you value your liberty, you lose. The Republicans will want to control your mind first, and the Democrats will want to control your property. They spew different crap, but its crap all the same.
Vote third party. Just as long as its not red or blue. I`m going libertarian.
in other words it`s a bunch of bullpoo... especially since America has "magically melted steel" blinders on ever since 9/11 (www.SeeLooseChange.com)
