Has the main ideological bent of this board shifted?
    #3310234 - 11/02/04 06:11 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

When I first came here, most of the posters were Left-Wing
oriented socialists. Now it seems as if the most prominent
point of view is the Libertarian way of thinking.

When I first came to this board, I already believed in pretty much
what I believe in now. But, I think this board has definately
changed a lot of people's thinking.

They simply think it's cool to shift one's economic beliefs. Look at me! I understand economics!  :rolleyes: Shroomery Libertarians = Posers.

It's definitely changed my views. I think the shift may have to do with the fact that many of the Libertarians on this board are so intelligent and articulate.

As opposed to your posts, anyway.

Yeah, the ideological bent has shifted, but the petty arguments never will.

I'm actually quite pleased with how the debates/arguments are now in comparison to a year or two ago. It was just chaos, with nothing but name calling and nobody actually getting their point across.

My views have never changed. I have always had centrist views but as far as who I voted for... it did change. Some of these people challenged me to go out and look into third parties a bit more and I have to say that they do represent the American people more. I am non-partisant still and will remain this way until the day I die simply because I dont agree with being affiliated with a political party. Anyway, I do enjoy these debates.

i agree soem of teh peopel here are very good at expressing their opinions and putting tehir information inwords. unlike this dirty left wing hippy. ive learned a bit here (havnt been here too long) from all sides, i still have my same basic beliefs and what i think politics should be. but its never a bad thing learing things about all sides and everyones opinions. greater understanding is key.

I post on another site, that has nothing to do with politics, but they also have a politics forum and it is absolute chaos+stupidity. This board is a gem.

Might as well say it, you know you want to. And seeing as you are able to actually say what you mean instead of just expecting us to guess what you're actually saying.... go for it.


--------------------
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've come to realize that the leftists have ruined all the drug message boards on the internet with their incessant paranoid psychobabble. Using drug message boards have damaged the credibility of the left wing and the left wing have damaged the drug message boards as well as being entirely responsible for burying any psychedelic revolution forever. They have also greatly inhibited legimate psychedelic research with their paranoid hatred of the establishment while appearing to ally themselves with the drug movement.

taking mushrooms and being libertarian couldn't go more hand in hand. just think about it. if you take mushrooms, you are breaking the law. that should be a pretty strong message to any leftists out there that the government is NOT the answer. so yeah, you get open minded mushroom people of different political understandings together, and you will see people being convinced of the ideas of liberty. its bound to happen.

just one more reason why mushroom people are the best people!
