With increasing banter between ignorant and uneducated citizens on both sides of the political spectrum, I've concluded that both liberals and conservatives are intent on running people's lives. Now before anyone here gets upset, please read on and it will be explained.
The decision making process of liberals is based solely on emotion, rather decisions based on how they feel at that particular time. That particular process stemming from the social movement of the "hippie" generation of the 1960s. From that time, it has progressed into modern day progressive mentality.
Conservative decision making process is based more on logic than emotion. Not to say emotion is not involved in the decisions, but logic comes first and then conservatives decide how they feel about the conclusion they reached.
Regarding the previous statements, both sides of the political spectrum know best how to run the country and people's lives. That is the nature of the democratic republic in which presides over the country. Now to explain my original claim.
Liberals know whats best for citizens in the country by regulating every portion of their life because liberals believe they know what is in the best interest of everyone's lives. Logically, it doesn't make any sense, for liberals do not know you or I exist, so how can they know whats best for us? They can't.
Conservatives know whats best for the citizens in this country by staying out of people's lives. Only you individually know what is best for you and your family. Logically, this makes sense for we only do what is in our best interest and cannot know what is best for anyone else.
Therefore, since conservatives do their best to stay out of the lives of individuals, they believe in individual freedoms given to us by God and protected by our Constitution. Unfortunately, liberals will not know freedom and liberty if it jumped up and bit them in the ass.
I realize this isn't the best post I have written, however, I really don't know any other way to explain the basically mentality of liberals and conservatives regarding their logic.
