Not particularly.

I have learned many things, though.

No.

Edit: I've learned people are more dishonest than I had thought, and that facts merely get in the way of many peoples agenda.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I'd say my views towards both the Democratic and Republican parties have gone way downhill.  I hope we get a 3rd party in power someday (go Greens!)  :smirk:

I've found some comfort in knowing that others have similar reality tunnels to mine, but my views on most things are in an almost constant state of change anyway. I still feel like I'm in an extremely small minority though.


--------------------
The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

My views have changed a little. I hate the government and the ignorance of the American people more than ever. Oh, and apathy, my hatred towards apathy is stronger than ever!

my views change as I am exposed to new information which causes me to re-evaluate my opinions.

this forum has convinced me that most people lack this ability.

I was already a hardcore news/politics junkie before I came here. This is just a small part of my habit :smile:

Certainly clarified my views on mushrooms. The Bushmunchers have made me realise that for many people mushrooms produce no more insight or benefits than 10 pints of alcohol. Clearly the doors must exist in the mind before mushrooms can open them.

Apparently they haven't taught you much about diversity either.

...or "open midnedness".

No, I don't mind diversity at all. And believe me I'm very open minded.

I've become SLIGHTLY more moderate since coming here. I considered myself a Socialist when I first came here, but I now support a mixed economy. I used to be anti-gun, but now I believe that MOST gun control is wrong. I have become more open-minded towards other opinions, and have learned quite a bit from some of the more intelligent conservatives here(I still think the majority of them are morons, but the same could be said of liberals as well).

Basically what Silversoul said. I used to be a pretty hardcore Socialist,but I now favor a mixed system with more checks and balances. Besides that,pretty much the same. I think I do have better listening skills now though.

it certainly hasn't taught you anything about conducting an honest debate.

Because someone doesn't agree with you and says so doesn't make them dishonest. Don't take disagreements so personally. Perhaps you should think about that the next time you trip.

Try not to assrape another thread with personal insults about me if you can help it. You've said them all before and what difference has it made? Why not try and impress me with your knowledge and intelligence for a change?

alex, politics aside for a moment here... this is a comment that i think you should take seriously and i'm not flaming you or anything. i mean this as constructive criticism. it really is a pretty objective observation uncolored by disagreements and personal differences between you and i.

you have a huge ego. tone it down a bit. seriously.

That's weird, how you say that as if every single poster on this forum didn't have one of those as well.

Calling the kid "Alpo" when "debating" him (and I use that term in the loosest of senses) does nothing but demean your own point, and make you look like an ass. (I'm not referring specifically to you, mushmaster - the culprits know who they are.)

Have we all always been self-important pricks? Or is it just me?

I agree that many of the people who come down so hard on Alex are guilty of the same things they accuse them of, but I think that many of their accusations are correct.
