Sorry if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find it.

You're going to have to come up with a platform that isn't built on a foundation of cowardice: fear of people with colors, religions, cultures and sex lives that differ from your own; fear of reform in banking, health care, energy; fantasy fears of America being transformed into an Islamic nation...

As I Stated and the Writer in the article did there's Ben a 360 turn around of the GOP and the hypocrisy that goes on with the Obama admin and the past if you can actually read it he makes clear good points with back up its not Trolling trust me.

Glad to hear it. I was once given a citation for alleged trolling. Look at my profile for verification, if you don't believe. Glad you have vindicated me on this thread.

I would like to know, to get back to the point I raised in Post No. 2, how long the same thread title would last in reverse.

Dear Conservative Americans,

Apologies.

Didn't realize the watermark was the-reading-of-a-web-site-entitled:

An open letter to liberals
http://zardozz.com/zz/2009/01/open-letter-to-liberals-leftists-and-social-progressives.html

Edit: You may have a point. But just say it. With very short sentences sentences of your own - without hyperbole, adverbs or adjectives - and with simply articles in support. That is not sarcasm. Just hope.

I found the letter to Liberals to be much more polite in its tone but riddled with inacuracy.
The letter to conservatives was a bit abrasive but pointed out specifics backed by linked references and data.

Cue Rodney King...

http://zardozz.com/zz/2009/01/open-letter-to-liberals-leftists-and-social-progressives.htmlDear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, Obama supporters, et al:^ How about that? An article that fails right in the very first sentence.

The open letter to conservatives was much more convincing. In fact, I had no idea the list of conservative offenses was so incredibly long.

That letter's like a Cliff Notes for Democrats running for office this fall. :D

I agree completely. The thread title is perfect.

But they believe in a theology, not what they actually practice. What they practice is irrelivant to them.

If the Dems preached the exact same GOP theology (jesus, trickle down, etc...) but still practiced their current agenda, im pretty sure the GOP would go along with it... :cool:

That letter doesn't even come close to the one in the OP.

The OP doesnít make any point at all. After reading that long babble of melancholy Iím convinced the only part the OP read was the section copied and pasted.

I was just pointing out the frequent hypocrisy and hatred of the republican party in the U.S. Whereas you made no relevant point at all.

Either make a point, or don't bother posting. And your signature is ridiculous and meant to provoke others.

And you obviously haven't read the actual article unless you did and are willing to admit the truth hurts :p

This is the same guy that admitted to sexually assaulting a woman because she tried to get a gay dude to hit on him, right?

By the way, I agree with most of the points in this "letter". Of course, some might say I'm not a real conservative, but what can I do about them?

Umm did you read the letter, there are articles to support every claim, the "Letter" you posted is just some Conservative Idiot rambling on, there are no FACTS!

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists, Obama supporters, et al:

Fail from the first sentence

You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

Cause heck, who needs CIVIL LIBERTIES anyway?!?

You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore, and Rosie O’Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them)

Do we really want to go that route? I think Rush weighs more then all of them (combined)

We’ll keep the capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart, and Wall Street. You can have your beloved homeless, homeboys, hippies, and illegal aliens.

Cause GOD forbid we help the homeless! Talk to me when you have no Job and are out on the streets with no where to live, and see if you still are in love with your "Greedy Corporations." This sentence sums it up nicely, you care more about Money and Corperations then you do about PEOPLE!

We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, and Shirley McClain.

No comment needed, the stupidity speaks for it-self.

You can give everyone healthcare, if you can find any practicing doctors. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right.

So just because someone might not be able to afford Health care means they should die?

I think our Four-Fathers might disagree...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Life is a right, someone should not be allowed to die from a preventable, or curable disease, simply because they cant afford the treatment. Period, end of debate!

And just for good measure..

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare

But why start following the constitution now?!?

We’ll practice trickle down economics

Yeah cause that worked out soooo well for ya for ya before....


The OP posted a Letter of FACTS, you posted a Letter of a conservative thats just mad because they LOST, get over it!

I read both "open letters".

One is talk points and rhetoric, and the other is pointing to data/info regarding each point.

I am not sure they are on the same level.
