I'll take a stab at something that has probably been discussed many times.

Conservatives want to live in the ideal while liberals live in reality.

Abortion, the ideal is there are no unwanted pregnancies via accident, rape or otherwise. Just abstain from having sex or unprotected sex. There should also be no situations where the mother's life is at risk. So, they want law to rule on the ideal. Liberals know all of these situations occur and want to be able to address reality.

The Gheys... Conservatives live in the ideal that God doesn't make mistakes. Gheys, trans and drag queens are choosing an abnormal lifestyle. Liberals live in the reality that these people exist and they should be allowed to exist, free of discrimination and criminalization.

The poors... Conservatives think everyone should be able to earn a living wage... that God gave everyone the same start in the world. Liberals know there are less intelligent, mentally ill and society should assist them...

Your first sentence is wrong, so everything based on that assumption is suspect.

Conservatives believe that every single person owning a machine gun makes us safer. Liberals deal with the aftermath.
Yeah, I'll add that conservatives believe that everyone should be able to use a gun and they won't be used for harm. Liberals live in the reality that the more guns the more negative repercussions.

You know, at the end of the day, a little more of this sort of thinking would probably more productive and healthy than a hundred threads like this:

The REALITY is only a small percentage of abortions are for the reasons you listed. The REALITY is, if we cut abortion down to just those reasons then MILLIONS of potential lives will be saved. MILLIONS. That's real.

The REALITY is, the GOP blames single parent homes for many of society's problems today. How will that situation improve by forcing women to carry "unwanted" pregnancies to term? That makes almost as much sense as solving our gun violence problem with more guns. #GOPLOGIC

And who is paying for those millions? Most fervent pro-life people forget about the baby after it's born.

Obviously they want more single parent homes so they can use the same excuse again and again.

The Opposite actually. Conservatives are conservative, which means they'll tend to advocate for the status quo, the conservative option. In other words, a known reality.

Liberals advocate for change, a "better way." The ideal! Ideally, healthcare is free, college is free, everyone has free fast internet, everyone is welcome to be an american citizen and also have all those benefits, etc. It's not a known reality, it's an ideal.

Look no further than the words "conservative" and "liberal" and there's your answer. Realist probably isn't the right word, because some of what liberals want would work in reality. A better word for conservative would probably be "pragmatist."

Hahaha... are you kidding me? Liberals think we have a chance at having some utopia of a society. Take gun control, libs think if all the guns went away, no one would hurt anyone. Repubs know people are gonna do dumb shit, and want to defend tthemselves.

Do you know what percentage of abortions are foe victims of rape or incest? It's a false narrative to protect the giant percentage of abortions that happen due to no money or "other". (Information based of Florida who announces reasons for abortions and I'm actual pro abortion regarding rape or if the birth will kill thr mother or if the baby will be born terminally ill.)

And that's the utopia we laugh at you about, as if you could just build everything perfectly thst everyone would be ok.

Hi everyone I‘m @Whiskeydeltadeltatango and I hide behind my guns and animals to protect me. I have minimal life experiences other than hunting squirrels with my AR 15, which I gladly show pictures of on a message board. I also argue with people about how bullets couldn’t possibly mutilate small children in school shootings. I’m one the world‘s biggest snowflakes, yet accuse others of being such.

I’ve said before I identified as a Republican, then moved to Indy and now Democrat. I’ll say in my experience and from those I know well or have met it seems at the basic level Cons tend to live in the past… the way it used to be vs looking to the future and where we could go. I’ll add that the good old days really weren’t that great for the most part if one is honest with themselves. And, some of the ideas to move us forward over time haven’t always been so great. That said, life moves on whether you like it or not and to me it’s best to come together to make things the best for all as time marches on.

Real conservatives are pragmatic, I don't know what these modern day morons like Trump, Lauren, and MTG are, but they're not conservatives.

They are the real RINO's

Only a small percentage of heart attacks and strokes are from primarily genetic factors. If we legislate America’s diet, MILLIONS of potential lives would be saved. Are you on board with not just telling people what they should eat but also taking away their choice because it will save lives?

Conservative and liberal are not to be confused as synonyms for Democrat and republican, although at this point they often are.

You can have liberal Republicans and conservative democrats, and at one time this was far more common than it is today.

I would bet if you have plenty of money to do what you want you are pro the status quo. If not then you want change.

funny how that works.

If you’re conservative when young you have no heart. If you’re liberal when you’re old you have no brain.

at least that’s the way I always heard it

Works both ways you know.

Liberals believe if we just get rid of all fossil fuels, wind and solar will just magically begin to replace them as efficiently as ever. While Cons still need gas to get to work.

AOC and liberals want you to pass every aspect of the green New Deal and pay people who “choose not to work” and when asked “How much will that cost?” they throw a fit, deflecting from the reality that shit costs real money and it has to come from somewhere.

Liberals think defunding the police and treating violent criminals as if they’re the real victims will somehow prevent violence and not make it worse.

And let’s not forget about those who wanted us to be like Denmark, while ignoring the fact Denmark had some of the strictest immigration policies on the planet. How’s that reality? Think they’re ready to lock down the border? Lol

Liberals think that by calling yourself a toaster, you really become a toaster and actually possess all of the things that make you able to heat bread up quickly. And if you don’t refer to them as a toaster, or play along with their belief that they really can toast bread…you’re a bigot.

PETA.

Liberals believe you should pass bills first (well…their bills) AND THEN ask what’s in it.

Liberals believe that an 83 year old man can suddenly get a stutter that causes him to do dumb shit that has nothing to do with a stutter.

Liberals thought that they could shut down blocks of Seattle and rule them themselves as a response to police violence. Within a day they flooded the area with guns, killed people and made the area more violent than ever.

Portland.

Liberals think the best way to help blacks get ahead is to enforce policies that punish Asians.

There’s so many more…

Lots of fibs in this one.

As a consequence of the coronavirus (COVID-19), fewer people immigrated to Denmark in 2020. The number rose again in 2021, but was still lower than before the pandemic. Of the 76,000 people immigrating to Denmark in 2021, 58,000 held a foreign citizenship, compared to only 18,000 with a Danish passport.Feb 21, 2022

Well…in 2012 and 2016 when Bernie and AOC were touting the wonderful Democratic Socialism of Denmark, they had some of the strictest immigration policies on the planet. While also raising their hands here, to say no one should ever be deported ever. Sorry. Not a fib. Just fact.
