not him but this is why i am a liberal:

because i believe in freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association, freedom to assemble and the right to self determination. basic liberal values, i believe my life is mine to live as i feel free so long as i don't impede others rights to do the same. i believe the government exists to settle disputes at the intersections of individual rights and to provide for the health and well being of it's subjects.

1/10 for making me reply.

progressive = far left with fascist ideology, and collectivism.

liberal = central right with individual liberties, and individualism.

Progressives hijacked the world liberal in hopes that real liberals would not notice. If you are a progressive, you are a fascist. You want to limit peoples individual rights to make their own choices by over-regulation, and the use of political correctness to squelch and limit free speech to only those ideas that are in agreement with your progressive views. How does it feel to be an oppressive fascist piece of shit?

Sounds more conservative/slight libertarian than liberal to me.

Liberals might claim to support rights, but only the ones they like. If you support conservative ideals, they attempt to silence you. They quash speech they don't like, many have spoken out saying freedom to assemble should be limited if you're part of a group they feel is "hateful" or offends people.

They believe in expansion of governments power and reach over peoples lives, which I believe directly conflicts with the idea of "freedom" and peoples rights.

Liberals only support freedoms as long as they are the freedoms they support. If they could, they would outlaw anything they deem "hate speech", many have already advocated restricting conservative talk show hosts like limbaugh or hannity.

Liberal college professors actively squash any discussion that contradicts their social teachings because they think it might offend someone or they think it's hateful.

Conservative professors have been fired for simply offering an opposing view, students have been kicked out of class for simply voicing an opinion against gay marriage or transgendered issues.

The IRS actively targeted conservative 501c3 corporations SOLELY based on their political affiliations. In Wisconsin, the conservative governor was targeted by multiple bogus John Doe investigations just because he enacted policies liberals disagree with.

Liberals are fucking ruthless and attack anyone they disagree with, but it's ok in their minds because conservatives are the axis of evil in their minds and any tactic used against them is justified because they are so dangerous.

Well that may be how people with lower IQs describe it, but this is because they are the ones being told what to do.

Conservatives would rather run amuck with absolutely no laws to get in their way and inconvenience them.

Police target blacks because they suspect them of breaking laws. This brought on by crime statistics which are caused by the poor economic situation of Black people which lead them to a life of crime. (These are generalisations)
The economic detriment and marginalisation of Blacks comes right out of slavery where they were paid less and had access to less resources.
Now is it bad that blacks haven't gotten out of this position themselves? Yes, although with a poor family structure where fathers are locked up, their children get taken down a bad road. It is a vicious cycle.

Not really, just using the knowledge I got on fascism, and the theory that is behind it. Mussolini is interesting to read about.
>>685454798
>Laws are a sign of a modern and civilized society
Laws show a problem with the population, that needs to be changed. If you need anti-racist zero-tolerance laws, you aren't doing shit about the actual problem, you are just punishing them. They reason they are that way isn't being dealt with.

So laws are part of the modern and civilized society, but needs to be handled with care. Laws can be abused, and will be abused.

When I say they are authoritarian and totalitarian, I am describing what they do. They tell people what to do, and they try and take control of different institutions to make this possible. Again, this has been seen with more people being fired for doing rational things. So I do not see how this got anything to do with low IQs, since it's descriptive.

You sound like someone for a fascist regime more than anything, or at least a totalitarian state, which is fine. We all got our own idealistic states. Sadly fascistic theory relies on utopian theory, which in practice can't work.

That is a 'perspective' argument. Dems say Reps feel their racists beliefs are correct, while they can logically deduce that all men are equal. So in this case Dems "think", while Reps "feel".

Its just an accurate definition of core liberal values. I dont know what else more you want. I guess you could say liberalism is open to rejecting traditional values in favor of making said progress. Liberalism also believes that government should be a force to protect civil/human/individual rights and promote equality. Of course the devil is in the details - there are a whole spectrum of opinions on how far the government should go in promoting equality etc.

those are the authoritarian left (opposed to the libertarian left) they have a lot of the right ideas but they have been in the echo chamber for too long and feel the only way to bring about these ideals is through force, they don't believe in individual rights but "group rights" so they aren't for the rights of a gay person for instance but a nebulous "gay people" group.

conservative ideals tend to be favouring tradition, hence why many conservatives are against gay marriage and in the past were against interracial marriage and against integration...because those were traditional.

some conservatives may well support traditional liberal values because our country has a long tradition of liberal values. but that is incidental.

I agree with you, but have no opinion on economics because I have not studied it enough, yet.

>>685454436
Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white, and you people keep projecting opinions on me that I don't actually have. For example, I don't hate Mexicans, I just think they should immigrate through the legal process in place, instead of crossing it illegally, and that there is nothing wrong with kicking them out if they don't. That goes for every migrant.

And yet, I keep getting called racist for that, which actually makes me hate the other races for real because I'm not "allowed" to criticize them even if my complaints are legitimate. I guess lies really do become true if you say them enough.

Affermative Action is also bullshit. If you really want things to be equal, remove the ethnicity question entirely and read resumes for work and higher learning like a double blind study and admit people based solely on merit.

college shouldn't be "well you can go learn about the world in you own time" it should be "this is what people think" it should be giving all sides of a debate, it should be showing liberal and conservative views together, it should be expanding people's minds not putting them in an echo chamber.

I love this meme how Republicans are racyss. I'm not even going to back to the guy who freed the slaves, just look at modern American history:

>In the 1950s, President Eisenhower, a Republican, integrated the US military and promoted civil rights for minorities. Eisenhower pushed through the Civil Rights Act of 1957. One of Eisenhower's primary political opponents on civil rights prior to 1957 was none other than Lyndon Johnson, then the Democratic Senate Majority Leader. LBJ had voted the straight segregationist line until he changed his position and supported the 1957 Act.

>The historic Civil Rights Act of 1964 was supported by a higher percentage of Republicans than Democrats in both houses of Congress. In the House, 80 percent of the Republicans and 63 percent of the Democrats voted in favor. In the Senate, 82 percent of the Republicans and 69 percent of the Democrats voted for it.

>Contrary to popular misconception, the parties never "switched" on racism. The Democrats just switched from overt racism to a subversive strategy of getting blacks as dependent as possible on government to secure their votes. At the same time, they began a cynical smear campaign to label anyone who opposes their devious strategy as greedy racists.
>>
>>685456734
>Affermative Action is also bullshit. If you really want things to be equal, remove the ethnicity question entirely

That's not the "real reason" behind it. They know that blacks typically have lower IQs, but feel that this shouldn't matter.

Because we've elected exclusively rich and connected people to high places in society for the better part of the existence of this country.

Being a politician pretty much requires that you're rich, or funded by the rich because campaigning is a full time job that doesn't come with a paycheck.

They rich hold a disproportionate amount of sway in government and it is silly to think they've been doing anything with that power but making themselves richer and slanting the rules in their favor. I have a ton of examples of this if y'all are interested, but the heart of my thesis is that even if I don't agree with every dumb thing Bernie proposes, ($15 an hour Federally, Free college), my vote goes to the guy who most represents a move in the other direction.

Whether you're a billionaire or on welfare you're basically only going to be able to eat 1 burger and fries at any given time so basically you're taxing the poor disproprotionately.

Please explain how.

If a poor person receives $100 a day for welfare, and a 20% flat sales tax is introduced, give them $120 a day.

Also, having a flat sales tax would eliminate all other taxes. No income tax, not property tax, etc, since there would be more than enough revenue from the sales tax.

Also when a rich boy buys a new private jet for 10 million, he will pay 2 million in taxes on that purchase. Where as when a middle class person buys a car for 25,000 they will only pay 5,000 in taxes. So only 5,000 instead of 2,000,000. In the end the rich are still paying more taxes.

You assume that collecting taxes and redistributing them doesn't have any overhead.

If someone less qualified than me gets the job because the boss needs to fill his color quotas or face bad publicity from the Left that could hurt his business, thats fucked up, and it is reasonable to be upset, just as if I got hired over the smarter black guy because the boss hates niggers.

We are not more racist than the Asians for damn sure, and the blacks are equally racist as the rest of us, they just haven't been in a position to abuse huge populations of other races because they were one of the last races to get guns, and never sailed the ocean until we got there.

What do Hillary and Trump want to do? The answer isn't "Decrease the size of the government".

The last conservative president we had created an unfunded expansion of medicare to the tune of billions of dollars a year, The Department of Homeland Security, and the TSA. $8 billion a year for a worse airport experience that does nothing to make us safer.

Oh, and there was that whole trillions of unfunded overseas adventures to kill 60,000 innocent brown people.

Sales taxes are regressive.


Having a higher sales tax is the equivalent of having your income tax % decrease as your income increases
>>
>>685459366
>Sales tax is the easiest to collect
It isn't, everything you buy has to be tagged and companies who sell you such things have to withhold the tax for the government and pay them.

Anything bought overseas is literally impossible to tax/or it's not worth the hassle trying to collect the tax.

You literally need to employ thousands of people to keep track of every purchase made and make sure that the correct amount of taxes have been paid on them.
That and flat taxes don't work because they probably won't apply to everyone, (charities, tax exempt organizations, tax exempt supply,) So you have to collect the tax then refund it and keep track of all of it which is basically an accountants wet dream.

Payroll taxes. Used to be 50/50 match on the employers part for FICA, Fed tax, Fed Unemployment. Now it has increased on the employers portion to 66/33. So when you see that $340 was your federal withholding tax, the employer also contributed $680 to this tax, which means the govt got $1140. Even if you get a 100% refund, the govt still got $680 because the employer doesn't get this back. That is $680 less that he has to work with that would help pay higher wages to his employees, or hire additional employees.

The govt does this to be sneaky, and the typical worker is unaware that any of these funds are matched or doubled by the employer. Guess what they all are. There is a ton of hidden shit, that costs companies lots of money, that could be better used to hire more employees, and pay better wages to those employees.

why should they? the government and the system are working fine right now. is it perfect? no of course but. but if your life is shit just remember that it probably would be under a perfect system too. take some personal responsibility, fix your own shit.

Being liberal (to a point) on social issues I have no problem with. However, this extreme shit we are going to now days is getting pretty terrible. I was with them for gay rights. But the fact its not socially acceptable for cops to protect themselves from criminals, being offended by everything that "might" offend someone, and the other general bullshit has gotten out of hand.

On the flipside, conservatives who start quoting scripture, you can go fuck yourself. We have had to amend a document written in 1776 to keep up with modern times and laws. Your 2000 year old book is out of date with modern times and you can go fuck yourself.

Payroll taxes are done to create a safety net for employees in case they get laid off.
It's quite fair that everyone pays it and if you give it back to employers they'll just have to make it up by taxing companies/employees more on their personal taxes.

Remember children, the government will always get paid and lowering taxes basically means lowering services.
There is no free lunch anywhere.

Not that guy, but I'd pay less taxes for not calling the cops, I have a gun, and I'll kill anyone I find trespassing, and I have signs that say "trespassers will be shot" at the boarders of my land.

I can't pay no taxes, though. I still use the roads, after all, and I'd like to have the option of using the fire department if needed.

He can't sue anyone, but if the cops can arrest him, others can bring him to court as well, and he can pay a private lawyer. And you can still be shot.

Never forget that the very VAST majority of people living outside of the cities own firearms, and use them.

When did this happen? A quick googling says that FICA is still 50/50. And Medicare/SS are going to be underfunded in a few years, not overfunded. That means M/SS will soon be paying out more than they take in which is ostensibly a net + for the American citizen collecting on these programs.

I'm not making any political statement on this programs for or against, just saying.

the system works. it's all those useless socially un-mobile that fuels the amazing american dream. if you are driven and motivated and have some sort of skill you'l be able to rise right up on the backs of the useless.

the idea that hard work is the key is a joke. hard work is not the way to achieve the american dream. it doens't mean shit. and shouldn't.

my entire life i've worked much less than my "peers". i'm better at what i do. i don't need to work as hard or as long. that's the reality.
