Default What's the ratio of lefties to righties here?

I'm new to this forum. What's the ratio of lefties to righties, about 100:1 or so, or worse?

The brainwashing of America has been a complete success, too many Ditto heads to count led by CAD & Co.

It probably just seems like there's more righties because the power and veracity of their arguments.

There's hope though, the mighty CAD has been showing signs of cracking here and there, today he is even slightly rattled by New Orleans Police given SS Powers.

I've always been a personal liberties kind of person. I also believe in personal responsibility...something some people here have a hard time with.
Oh, and there are no "cracks" - just in your perception of me

All their spinning keeps them dizzy, so they rarely post coherent arguments. Lots of noise, not much signal. There are a few reasoned, articulate conservatives here, but they are the exception. Mostly you have a bunch of Bush fanboys who mindlessly parrot the party line.


(To really answer your question, it appears to be roughly an even split. If you look at some of the polls, some are "won" by the right, others by the left. There also seem to be quite a few generally conservative folks who are unhappy with Bush and the invasion of Iraq. This tends to pull some threads more strongly to the left.)

No. The media tries to hide it's left-leaning slant and disguise it as "news". Most people here don't attempt to hide it.

Finally tired of all the "I'm sick of school" threads over on OT, eh?

To answer your question, I'd probably estimate the overall ratio at about 50:50 for frequent posters. When one adds those falling in the infrequent catagory, we might be looking at around 60:40 or so.
