Actually it seems both sides act like the other side is totally wrong. OP may have truly meant to comment only on radical liberals, but it seemed likely to me that she considers all liberals as radical.
I come here once in a while hoping to get the thoughts of others, to learn or at least understand. Unfortunately there is often a comment, sometimes leading or rude, and the rest of the thread is just name calling.
I have a lot of friends who are radical on one side or the other about many subjects. If I heard what they say without knowing them I wouldn't like it, probably would not listen. But I have gotten to know them and value their opinion, or at least respect it.
Telling a bit of my story might get someone to know me a bit better and thus they might be willing to listen to some of my liberal thoughts.
Since I don't come here very often I certainly did not think she was talking to me personally, just her raging against what she called raging liberals, grouping them into the "mindset" and lifestyle she thinks we all have.
I said it before and it is still true: This board is not about discussion. I don't know why I bother.
