    A potentially amusing light hearted thread has turned into bullshit. I suspect a new user will ressurect this thread in 3 years time to add in his argument, but for now, I concur with SPOO,

    Funny as right-wing people can't stand being seen as one..

    It is like the "I'm not racist but" moment...

    Right wingers tend to be driven by more individualistic stimuli than liberals...

    They can mask it under the Self-reliance less taxes less governments mantra as long as they want but they tend to be less social orientated than so called Liberals...

    Nothing wrong with that but it is a fact...

    I wouldn't say the the right "hates to be called the right", I think it just depends on how it is put out. Right winger, leftist, "neo con" and liberal aren't neccessarily perjorative terms, but if it gets delivered that way, the target usually objects.

    Most people do not like to be viewed in a pejorative term especially when the linked depiction is not an accurate description of their views. When these statements are made, it is generally evident the author does not care about accurate representation of those who do not share their views. Caricatures describing others' intentions in this manner is generally considered intolerant and shows distaste for others.

    If you really believe in so called right-wing policies , why do you feel insulted by being called one?

    Be honest , the rhetorics used by Republicans is on the line of smaller taxes, small government. a strong nationalistic/anti-immigrants/ethnic minorities and militaristic penchant with a good dose of God thrown in the mix..

    If it's a caricature , it is good a good one..



    I'm a social-Christian democrat and I'm proud of it..

    Being called Liberal is a badge of honour not an insult.

    My grandad's a marquess, and half of my clothes and shoes are from ebay and oxfam. That's because I'm a student without any money, to be fair. Said grandad, though, about whose money weird internet conspiracy pages have literally been written (you've probably the kind of person who writes on them, actually), buys EVERYTHING at a couple of charity shops that are local to him. His "attire" (that's what you call clothes, isn't it?) doesn't even consist of beaten-to-hell bespoke - which is what SF thinks upper-class English people wear, I think - but actual tat. Unfortunately for a small-time snob like yourself, social status doesn't emanate from shiny white carpets and cashmere, nor from an averson to "low class" areas. If you think it does, then that's only because you're so far from having it; which is funny, if you think about it. :D

    Suits him well ...

    He also said he would prefer being American than British during a US tour...

    A lot of things have been wrongly attributed to him...

    He was a political animal , opportunistic and sometimes ready to change his mind and party.

    You know you are ment for SF's CE forum when your conversation distills itself to politics. ​

    I like the way you put that.

    Regarding conservative and liberal ... the terms are not static. For example, Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican candidate for president, represented the more conservative side of his party. Well, he was the more conservative Republican candidate by that party's 1964 standards. But by today's Republican standards, he's often viewed as having been unacceptably liberal. A successful Republican who believes in a woman's right to choose and has no issue with gays serving in the military is ... well ... unthinkable today.

    To bad that Churchill isn't still around so that he might have the opportunity to rephrase his comment in light of today's idea of 'conservatism.'
