    For a very simple reason: conservatives focus on resentment of fellow citizens, which is how you become burned out.

    If you're busy resenting school teachers, people on food stamps, and illegal immigrants, you're going to become burned out.

    Liberals tend to focus resentment on the upper echelons of society, like the people who run Citigroup.

    That is non-specific. It is also the *right* thing to do since the people at the top have the power to make the world a better place, while the people at the bottom do not have the power.

    So basically a conservative will listen to Rush Limbaugh and think about how all of these people he sees on the street are ruining america. A liberal will listen to Rachel Maddow and think about how America needs to be made better on a whole. Latter is more positive, ultimately, and that is the mindset needed to accomplish.

    If you wish to debate a specific subject matter within the P&N community then you are expected to employ reasonable thread titles (not declarations of unproven rhetoric) and back up your assertions in the OP by way of citing 3rd party links and resources.

    Since this is a blog thread, and blog threads are not allowed, this thread is now closed.

    More accomplished at trolling?

    These "my team is more X / better than yours at Y" threads generally are, even when they're based on a slanted interpretation of a dubious study instead of unsupported philosophizing.

    Conservative has become as meaningless as liberal.

    Real conservatives don't believe in government control of social issues, that's supposed to happen in the home and church.

    What social conservatives really are are authoritarians who want to force their morality on everyone.

    And anyone who's not a Mormon ought to try living in a small town in Utah to see what its like.

    From his OP, karmy appears to believe Liberals are better at deciding which groups should be more resented, though I'm unclear as to how that translates into "accomplishment".

    Once again, black and white thinking that prevents any serious political discussion from ever taking place.

    But at least we know what this thinking is worth and that's nothing.

    The problem is that home and church have been destroyed and/or lost the power. So someone has to step into the void.

    And to quote Christine O'Donnell, Republican candidate for Senate and former witch:

    Oh Hai! It is Mr LOSER! Welcome back to the show, CallMeALoser!

    But moving past LOSER's idiocy, we also see the OP did not bother to actually show what liberals are more accomplished at. Using his post and LOSER's posts as guides, I would say they are highly accomlished at fail.

    liberals put pressure on those at the top of society to make things better.

    Conservatives, in an effort to deflect, often end up castigating those at the bottom of society as deserving their fates.

    This can turn habitual and nasty. Look at how Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke.

    When liberals get nasty, they say awful things about the person in power and the rich in society. That's okay because the rich can bear it.

    When conservatives get nasty they pick on those on the bottom. Which is textbook bullying.

    Sandra Fluke was not some innocent victim. She is a professional activist who decided to stir up shit and then cried when she got some on her :rolleyes:

    Again, a reasonably cogent explanation of why you agree more with Liberals than with Conservatives on this issue, but I'm still not clear on how this translates into "accomplishment".

    Simple. The hatred against those on the bottom for any moral failings that they possess is more pernicious and ultimately destructive.

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    liberals hate success and want to punish it.

    liberals focus every ounce of engery trying to figure out how to take more and more from the rich, and give more and more to whatever special interest puppy they want to play with today.

    liberals think everyone is too stupid to know whats best for them, and that they have all the answers.

    The answer is always make the rich poorer, and the poor more depedant on them. it must be exhuasting.
