How do you get your perspective on politics?
Newspapers? … they’re almost all owned by liberals with an agenda that leads them to attempt to manipulate you.
The alphabet TV stations, (ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC) they’re the same as well, owned by liberals with an agenda, … so one cannot count on them for reliable info either.
By now, hopefully, most people who care, have learned: one cannot get the truth, the facts, by listening only to one side… either side!
This weekend, I learned of a major difference between liberals and conservatives one that I hadn’t noticed so much. I got out of my comfort zone; I did something I don’t usually do – I often go on outings, with a group of liberals, but this time, I rode with them.
Conservatives, when they see the danger to our nation, (and right now, that’s significant), they search for information on why. Most conservatives, are concerned enough to listen to talk radio and get other’s perspectives.
Liberals, on the other hand, don’t want to be confused with the facts, nor do they want to have to pay attention to or learn the “ins” and “outs” of government, especially as, relatively recently, it’s often corrupt.
If one listens to ideas and concepts, and people arguing whether what’s been done is right or not, or – – – if what politicians have done is warranted and why, …. to find out, they turn to talk radio. That’s where one gets the facts – both liberal and conservative. It’s the same at home too, they take the time to tune into the informative stations – Cable TV & radio.
It’s not only work to try and keep abreast of all the crucial issues, part of which is to come to an understanding of all the players and their views, who you can believe and who you can’t. Doing so, is also unsettling.
It’s all dictated by whether one loves his country enough — how much time, one is willing to spend, reading, listening to, and watching, sometimes boring and objectionable material …. learning how to sort through, and find the truth.
Liberals, on the other hand, they just want to be entertained; they just turn on the music …. (or what passes for music, now-days) ..…..
I guess it’s soothing to be entertained while they stick their heads in the sand. It’s a lot easier to think people are basically good and that …. in the end, we’ll all have a “NANNY STATE and evil will just fade away.
