Are Righties Shy, Befuddled or Just Stupid?

On numerous occasions, my friend robo2010 has asked the question of the Righties out there; How have you been negatively affected since Obama became president? He hasn't received one single answer - not one. He has posted many other blogs to which he has received many right-wing responses. Some of those responses were insightful and thought provoking but most were arguments that, upon further examination were simply Republican spew. When I have pointed out the absurdities of their arguments, they quit talking.

This makes me wonder; Are Righties shy, befuddled or just stupid? I can't think of any other reasons for their non-response.

    OK then – based on a number of responses to this question, it’s unanimous. We now have all the evidence. Statistics bear out that Righties are in fact, stupid.

      They are actually not stupid. They are well paid by their sponsors to spew they projectile puke.

    They are waiting for more material to parrot……….considering that they are waiting on one of their own to come up with this new material and also considering the average intelligence of a righty, expect to hear a response roughly half-way through Obama’s second term!

      Yeah, but who will they parrot? None of them have been smart enough to come up with anything worth parroting.

        Probably Ann Coulter or Glenn Beck.

          So it’s still unanimous. The correct answer is: stupid

    Stupid, of course, but the lefties (liberal sheep) are also rather stupid IMHO

    Look, most smart people are “independent thinkers” (independents) and NOT party followers.

      The right is fighting against increased taxes. They are fighting on behalf of the wealthiest people in our country while the rest of us bear the tax burden. The right is fighting against “Obamacare” or any kind of national healthcare system. Again, they are fighting on behalf of the wealthy. They are fighting against any kind of gun control. No one is trying to take away their right to own guns. They are fighting against regulatory agencies – again, for the wealthy. There are basically two main issues the right is fighting against that affect the masses and those are social issues – gay rights and abortions. The problem is, anyone who wants to ban gay rights and who wants to outlaw abortions has no choice but to fight for the wealthy. Why do you think the wealthy have mostly backed the candidates on the right? Virtually everyone is an independent thinker but the choices are nearly all bought and paid for which is why we are so polarized. Big money has us right where they want us. Divide and conquer. I wouldn’t call anyone sheep…greedy pigs maybe…but not sheep.

        Rubbish! Unfortunately very few people are actual “independent thinkers”!!!

        The right is, of course, stupid and the left is also stupid for thinking that by just “voting” they can fix things!!!

        Either case, big money OWNS both the right and the left and, as such, you cannot fix the damn system by just voting! Wake up!!!

        America is indeed polarized because most of the Americans (right and left) are stupid.

          Are you a fucking broken record, wireless? I’m curious, do you just cut n paste the same response for every thread?

                On the contrary! It is stupidf freaks of Nature like you who really need to wake the fuck up!!!

    You are correct. Thank you – most of these posts turn into that – blah, blah, blah from both sides and I was equally guilty. I still say we must change the way political campaigns are financed and make it illegal to take these kinds of bribes.

    It’s still unanimous! Stupid is the correct answer! Congratulations! You have all answered this question correctly! Get ready for the bonus round – lol!

    I wouldn’t even know what to ask. It’s disappointing to me that we seem to be so arrogant as to think we have nothing we can learn from other nations. Ok…how ‘bout, in general, what do South Africans think about the USA and President Obama and do we have any policies (that you’re aware of) that have any direct effect positively or negatively on South Africa?

    Sorry but I have no idea what you just said!

    Anyway, anyone associated with (and/or a member of) a political party is “stupid” (a sheep, a follower) almost by definition!

    Essentially, smart independent thinkers (independents) do not need to be affiliated with any political party and/or any religion…

      Because most people are mentally weak and, therefore, incapable of “free” thinking!

      Also, most people are e-motional midgets and over sensitive (havetoo much empathy) to be real free thinkers!!!

      So yes, a significant shift in consciousness will indeed be required to re-program most of these midget “party follower” minds.

        wirelessguru1,
        By the tone of your rants, you obviously believe you are smarter than anyone else. The fact that our government is “owned” is indisputable. The idea that some are stupid or emotional is likely also a fact but that is our electorate, like it or not. This country is made up of all types of people and we are all equal whether we are overly emotional or cold-hearted like yourself. We all have an equal say when it comes to putting someone in office. Perhaps you deal in facts. So do I. But your obvious lack of people skills would indicate an area where your intelligence is seriously lacking. If all you do is complain about the problems and complain about the masses being too stupid to make rational decisions, you are in fact, just as much part of the problem as those you criticize I haven’t heard any ideas that could represent possible solutions from you. You obviously don’t give a shit what people think about you and that’s fine but you might have some success in making a difference if you treated people with some respect. After all, they have every bit as much right to be the way they are as you have to be the way you are. An IQ test is not a requirement for voting.

        June 22, 2011
        1. wirelessguru1

          Rubbish! We are all UNIQUE individuals and NOT “all equal”! Wake up!!!

          Also, intelligence has nothing to do with people skills, grow up! One does not need to “kiss ass” (aka people skills) to be intelligent, on the contrary!!!

          Yes, the one does not give a shit what people think about him!

          ..and the one is part of the solution, not the problem!!!

          Also, only people that deserve respect should be treated with respect, not stupid morons (aka party affiliates)!!!

          ..and finally, YES, people definitely have the right to be stupid and the one also has the right to call them stupid! That’s what equal rights are all about!!!

    That sounds great. I actually don’t have a problem with special interest representatives meeting with our legislators. Corporations need to meet with them to hammer out fair trade policies, etc. Environmental groups, unions, trade associations, etc. should have access. They just shouldn’t be able to buy access without suffering serious consequences. So…any ideas as to how to gain enough support for this to actually make a difference? …other than making these posts which relatively few people see?
