    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.

    As this is a liberal board predominantly, this is just flame bait which is indeed trolling

    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...

    ^ 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.

    [Nice quick edit, by the way. Impressive.]

    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 doesn’t make any point at all. After reading that long babble of melancholy I’m convinced the only part the OP read was the section copied and pasted.

    And once again, what's your point? 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.

    Pretty much everything in the letter seems like legitimate criticism to me...

    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?
