I can't understand conservative views
    #8494387 - 06/07/08 12:04 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

It isn't that I don't try, or that I am ignorant towards conservative views, but I really can't understand the mindset behind most of them.

Abortion, gay marriage, war in Iraq etc. I honestly and truly cannot understand them. I can understand the whole abortion thing from a logical stand point, but that is about the extent my my understanding of many conservative beliefs.

I'm not talking about the conservatives that think that we should stay in Iraq until it is fixed, or something more permanent is set up to keep order. I'm talking about the ones that think abortion should be completely abolished, gay marriage shouldn't be legal in any state, country, or remote island, and that the war in Iraq was necessary in the first place to our safety.

I'm not saying this to bash other people's beliefs, I truly and honestly do not understand how some one could believe that. :shrug:

Anyone want to try to shed some light on that?

Those aren't really traditional conservative views.  Old conservatives values of small government, low taxes, and non-interference are something I can really respect.  This new neo-con junk is atrocious, though.

Under closer inspection I realised it was a funky ball of tits from outer space.

Well, the neo-con junk is what I am referring to.

There definitely was a time when conservatives stood for something that was respectable.

I can't understand any extremism. I've run the gambit from bleeding heart to fox slave and settled down for a more central view.

I can understand the heavy Judeo-Christian presence in many conservative groups, but disagree. I can understand notions of social entitlement generally held by my more liberal friends, but disagree too.

I just want everyone to stay the hell out of my 'biness'. I'm a happy father of two, think abortion is absolutely devastating, especially to younger women, but don't believe it should be abolished.

Both sides have something to offer, hence why I consider myself in the middle.
