democrats in a nutshell
#179 to #134 - anonymous (07/06/2013) [-]
Because every liberal does this...

In all honesty, both of the political parties are ****** up in their own way. That is why I am independent. If I see a president who I think will run the country well, I will vote for him. Political parties are just ******** that is dividing the country.

Guess what? I'm a liberal-leaning independent. I've given food to the homeless countless times. I don't have an ipad, hipster glasses, or goatee. I hardly ever go to Starbucks. I don't mindlessly support everything Obama says or does. I don't want to kill your babies or abolish your religion. By making that generalization, you're the hypocrite.

you just said you weren't a democrat so what's your point?

You can't generalize an entire group based on the actions of a few.

using big government to force equalization is exactly what democrats advocate for, it's hardly a mere generalization
#143 to #140 - anonymous (07/06/2013) [-]
99% of democrats don't give to homeless shelters so you can hardly represent the party
#146 to #143 - imonaboatman (07/06/2013) [-]
I'm not representing the party. Technically, I don't even belong to the party. But I know plenty of Liberals who are honest, non-hypocritical people who go out of their way to help the poor, just as I know plenty of Republicans who do the same thing. I'm just saying it's not fair to stereotype a whole group because of some assholes.

actually, most of the people who vote democrat don't follow the news, have system of values on which to vote on, and don't give a damn what happens in washington
They just vote democrat because the internet told them to.

being for gay marriage doesn't automatically make you democrat, yet a huge chunk of those voters think it does

That's another generalization. I could say all Republicans vote that way because Fox news told them to, but that wouldn't be fair either. I tend to vote Democrat because: A. I'm an Environmental Science major, and I'm educated enough to know that there are countless, demanding issues in our environment that need to be resolved, or at the very least, ameliorated, and the Democratic Party has done far more than the Republican Party to solve these issues. B: I don't condone the unnecessary wars that today's Republican Party tend to get involved in. C. I believe that gay people have every right to get married, and we have no right to tell them that they can't. D. I believe that diversity should be encouraged, not looked down upon. The Republican Party stresses conformity, to an extreme. E. The majority of the Republican Party chooses to hold onto antiquated beliefs, and refuses to accept science in fear of change.
I don't agree with every platform of the Democrats, but their policies are much more agreeable with my beliefs than those of the Republicans. I don't vote Democrat because people tell me to. I live in Alabama; 80% of people here tell me to vote Republican. I vote Democrat because the party's belief system matches mine much more closely.

it's weird that democrats are more supportive of giving arms to Syria than republicans if we're the warmongers
#178 to #176 - imonaboatman (07/06/2013) [-]
I never said I was supportive of it, and I'm not at all. That's my point. I certainly don't agree wholeheartedly with the Democratic Party. But, right now, we're on a two-party system, and I agree more with the Democrats. The Party in a whole does some stupid things. But until we're able to break the two-party system, we have to settle for who we agree most with.

The Alternative Vote Explained Likewise a lot of republicans disagree with the party's reluctance to support gay marriage, but we still vote for them because allowing government to grow beyond control is a bigger problem.

you generalized the republicans...
#175 to #172 - anonymous (07/06/2013) [-]
No, he didn't. He said "most", "majority", and "tends", whereas you said "99% of Democrats".
#177 to #175 - anonymous (07/06/2013) [-]
I said 99%
he criticized me for generalizing
he generalizes the republican party
he's a ******* hypocrite, just like the douche bag liberal in the content
#138 to #134 - anonymous (07/06/2013) [-]
