My warning to liberal thinking people who possess critical thinking is that you can't have sympathy for the devil without getting yourself f**ked over on a regular basis by said devil. Evil has no place in your life and it isn't out there somewhere, waiting to invade your body or mind. It is in the people who do evil things.
Some of them can sound really sane and reasonable, almost like normal people. Any humane, compassionate, caring human being with an ounce of morality can see there isn't much difference between greedy selfish self centered egomaniacs who don't care what you think and conservative politicians who think backwards and try to lie to us about it. They can't help themselves because they think that is the only way. They are the same ones who think they need to change their messaging (lie to your face more convincingly) instead of changing their policies to fit the very public they have been elected to serve.
My message to Democratic Party Members / Liberals is that you can't have sympathy for the devil. You have been raised to believe some things that Republicans / Conservatives want you to think because they realize they have become irrelevant. They also know that liberals have been taught to believe that being "fair and democratic" are positive qualities that they see as a weakness.
REMEMBER THIS WARNING: Some Democrats or liberal types think that being progressive and liberal thinking means that they have to allow right and wrong to somehow BOTH be correct. This is ignorant. They want people who are wrong to have an equal voice. I think the quote by Isaac Assimov applies best here. He said, "...There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way though our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' "
I don't want to see people who want to act without compassion for others and living on greed and a hunger for the power that corrupts in office. They need to change, not revitalize their party. They have allied themselves with the worst of the United States' racists, homophobics, crackpots, and the nation's stupidest non-thinking people who lack critical thinking and are delusional enough to believe despite being told repeatedly that they are wrong that nothing they do is incorrect,
displaying stupidity as a banner like it is something to be proud of. BEING WRONG started losing them elections ever since Eisenhower and the only way they could win was to cheat and lie about their real intentions. Unlimited greed and a hunger for power that corrupts is the watchword of the modern GOP, devoid of any compassion or intelligence.
Conservatives go on and on about how they have a right to their opinion. They are using the word "opinion" as if it means the same thing as "fact". Here is the difference: An opinion is defined as "...a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty." A fact is "...a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true." They are NOT the same thing but people who try to confuse the public, like political pundits and disinformationalists (propagandists, and there are plenty of those out there, like Fox News) want you to believe that reality is a matter of opinion, and that anything that isn't what they label as conservative (which is merely incorrect or wrong) is a valid "opinion" while talking about facts, and that facts which are known to the entire universe as being correct, are merely a "liberal opinion".
Here is the one thing you have to remember. REALITY DOES NOT HAVE A LIBERAL BIAS.
One thing that you will find to be consistently true for almost every conservative, is that they believe their authority figures (religious and political leaders) are always right and when you are raised from birth believing that as long as you listen to certain people that you already have all the answers you will ever need and that you are always right - then, you don't learn how to think and lead others in progressive endeavors, you only know how to memorize and follow. No matter what you think you know about them, you will find that conservatives that "SAY" that they agree with you about being compassionate and caring about their fellow man is correct - while voting for people who live on greed and power. That is saying one thing and doing another. Their leaders are the same type of politicians who wrote the declaration of independence saying that all men are created equal while owning slaves. All of their main policies are consistently proven to be wrong and instead of admitting their flaws, they think being wrong harder and more often will make a difference and somehow make their incorrect principles and policies work and "somehow" become right, maybe, someday (WTF?). The people who tell you that they are "moderate" conservatives, are telling you that they are only "partially" backwards, which isn't correct or proper way to get
things done, so who cares? That is like saying that they are only a "little bit" insane. Delusional is delusional, not in denial. Let me explain the difference. Denial is when you see a problem and don't want to face it. Delusion is when you look at a problem and don't see it as a problem, you see it as a solution, something you can work with and make work "for you" if you just manage it well. NOT!
Those who try to tell you that they are "moderate" are either lying or delusional to believe that they are correct while going backwards only half the time. That is why they wrote the song lyrics "Sympathy for the devil...". There is no one that thinks being evil, at all, EVER is a good idea and people who say they are wrong only some of the time aren't progressive and intelligent rational people, they are delusional enough to believe they are only partly stupid or evil. If that makes sense to you then you are delusional, also.
