For several years now, I have been trying to figure out why my Conservative views are so different from my Liberal friends. Both of us feel that our views are correct and we both want what is best for our country; we just disagree on how to get there. What puzzles me most is that my Liberal friends refuse to even discuss politics which not only strains our relationship but, considering the seriousness we find our country in, hinders us from getting closer to the truth so as to be informed voters.

It seems that IQ has little to do with our differences because both Republican and Democrats have supporters with high IQs. The main difference seems to be that we have different sources of information and the media is peddling Hate and sometime lies.

The Liberals main source of information comes from the Liberal biased New York Times, Hollywood, CNN, MSNBC, Chris Cuomo, Brian Stelter, Don Lemons, Lawrence O’Donnell, Morning Joe, etc. while the conservatives rely on FOX NEWS, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Dinesh D’Souza, Mark Levin, Candace Owens, Governor Huckabee, etc.

What is lacking is a healthy and respectful debate between Liberals and Conservatives that enables us to get closer to the truth. Too many of us are lazy and just listen to only those sources that agree with our limited opinions.

The patriots of both parties must have multiple sources of information and be able to change their views when new credible information is discovered.

I wish you were wrong Doc but probably not.

Well said cheeki!  Also it takes a great deal of effort to discover the truth.

Thanks Larry that's a really good discussion and your right we are all divided without middle ground so there can be no meaningful dialog with each other. Liberals and leftists are entrenched in a 'collective' attitude where as conservatives seem to have an 'individual' attitude. Left wingers tend to make sacrifices, even to their own detriment if believed it's good for the collective good. We can see this when they blindly line up for experimental vaccines or are the ones first in line at a gun grab or when their jobs are cut from covid fallout and they just walk out with whatever a company has offered up first. A right minded individual is unlikely to run to the vax clinic, would never turn up at a gun grab, and never accepts a companies first offer in job loss. I've seen myself many lefties walk out of their jobs with no more than a months pay while I've seen right minded enter into robust negotiations and walk out with six figure sums of redundancy and unlocked pension funds from the same work places. The first thing leftists think about is following the group, it gives them a sense of belonging. The first thing rightists think about is Whats in it for me. I think finding common ground on anything is extremely rare, but lol, I did hear the other day that guards were being posted at the doors of our vax clinics due to white supremacy and eco. warriors joining up with the anti-vac movement so there's a glimmer of hope out there.

Not going to happen. the left knows they have no logical argument! They cannot win in a debate so name calling, lies, and deflection are their only go to alternative. The so-called intellectuals of the Democrats have one agenda and that is to stay in power and to do that they will vote lock and step with each other as they lie their way to more fraudulent elections! There is no middle ground Larry. They are liars and if you can't see that then you can't see that being a moderate is a waste of time as the left does not reach across the aisle.
